Saturday Night Movie Night -- Fistful of Dollars and Last Man Standing

I am in the midst of writing a few things (here in the Valley and in Real Time) -- so, since I'm in a Akira Kurosawa mood, allow me to introduce two remakes of Yojimbo.

The first movie is Clint Eastwood in a Fistful of Dollars; This is the beginning of the famous trilogy that leads to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly.

The second movie stars Bruce Willis in a 1920's Border town following the same route as Eastwood in the above movie. It is called Last Man Standing.

And this week, I will look at a few things:

1)  Democrats and Presidential Enemies lists -- IOKIYAD;

2)  Drone Warfare -- again, IOKIYAD;

3) The Psychological change of the Right and how Brietbart became Our North Star (Hint: Look at how Bush fils and Palin were/are treated);

4) Modern media, not "Speaking Truth to Power," when a Democrat sits in the Oval Office; and

5) "Up your game!" in Political Arguments -- a "How to" for those who claim Righteousness before ever conceding anything. (A very Liberal trait -- not even Social Conservatives do this to me.)

Now enjoy the double feature.  See you tomorrow.

First, a tune:

Styx, Mr. Roboto

A Fistful of Dollars (1964)

Last Man Standing (1996)
