What The Woman King Boycotters Got Wrong

What The Woman King Boycotters Got Wrong

When I saw #BoycottWomanKing trending on Twitter, I wanted to see “The Woman King” even more. Whenever someone on social media tells you to boycott a movie, you should probably see the movie.

Dirty Harry, Chowchilla Kidnappings & The Parolee

Dirty Harry, Chowchilla Kidnappings & The Parolee

“Dirty Harry” with Clint Eastwood was a controversial movie when it came out in 1971. A homicide detective takes the law into his own hands to stop a serial killer who got off on a legal technicality.

A different scene from that movie inspired a real life kidnapping five years later. The serial killer hijacks a school bus with the driver and children on board to get away from Dirty Harry. The school bus crashes inside the entrance to a rock quarry.

The Chowchilla kidnapping was—and still is—the largest kidnapping in U.S. history.

Why is that kidnapping still relevant today? The third and final kidnapper got paroled from prison and came out $100 million US richer than he went in.

Watching E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) FOR FIRST TIME!

Watching E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial (1982) FOR FIRST TIME!

Forty years after Steven Spielberg’s “E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial” came out, I saw the movie for the first time. “E.T.” is back on the big screen in IMAX theaters for a limited time. Between “Bullet Train” a few weeks ago and “Wakanda Forever” in November, old blockbusters are the new blockbusters. I figured out why I didn’t watch “E.T.” as a 12-year-old boy when it first came out in the summer of 1982. “E.T.” was boring.
