ROOTS 3: THE BEN AFFLECK STORY

"I come from a long line of slave-owning scumbags."

“I come from a long line of slave-owning scumbags.”

Ben Affleck, best known for being a cowardly apologist for and enabler of Muslim homophobia and misogyny, is at the center of a new controversy because of his heavy-handed attempts to get his family’s history of slave-owning censored from a PBS documentary. Meanwhile, another film has been released about Affleck’s slave-owning family.

In the new movie titled Roots 3: The Ben Affleck Story, Affleck was quoted as saying “I learn a few lines for movies and that makes me above you commoners. My role in life is giving finger-wagging lectures to the peons. I should be above the humiliation of being exposed as the scion of a repulsive family of slave-owners. That’s off the record, by the way.” Continue reading

You’d think it would be impossible to do something creative with the mock documentary format at this point but To The Fourth Power proves to be a thought-provoking and inventive piece set “just a few years from now”.

MOVIE REVIEW: THE WORLD’S A STAGE (2014)

Would ALEC BALDWIN find the plot of this movie a little too close to reality?

Would ALEC BALDWIN find the plot of this movie a little too close to reality?

The World’s A Stage (2014 – Glitternight productions) – This independent film, though set here in the 21st Century, is reminiscent of ancient Greek political satires like the ones penned by Aristophanes, Eupolis and Cratinus as well as the parathespian comedies of Strattis. A traveling troupe of actors visit an unnamed town and are a huge hit in a play dramatizing the heroics of a group of honest politicians. The citizens are bowled over by their performances and elect the men and women of the theatre troupe to actually govern their town.

Naturally the shallow and vain thespians are in way over their heads when it comes to dealing with real-world responsibilities and problems. Their egotistical need for applause and approval also makes them unfit for office, especially when it comes to Continue reading

THE BADLANDS BEAUTY (2014)

THE BADLANDS BEAUTY (2014)

The Badlands Beauty (2014- Glitternight Productions) is an explosive action film starring the supermodel known as M*E*T*A*L. Regular readers of Balladeer’s Blog will remember M*E*T*A*L as the beautiful woman who poses as Edward Wozniak’s Neo-Pulp superheroine the Matriarch.

M*E*T*A*L is moving into acting in what may be the most memorable movie debut since Eddie Murphy in 48 Hours. Our gorgeous heroine is an outlaw biker babe who can out-drink, out-shoot, out-fight and out-ride all of the male bikers in her dangerous circles. While M*E*T*A*L – called Nomad in the film – is partying hard at a dive in an unnamed town in northern Mexico she Continue reading

THE MOST CONTROVERSIAL INDEPENDENT MOVIES OF 2013

With the calendar year 2013 firmly in the books Balladeer’s Blog takes this opportunity to examine the six most controversial indy flicks from the preceding twelve months.

The Burqa: A heroic woman fighting Muslim Apartheid and defending women's rights.

The Burqa: A heroic woman fighting Muslim Apartheid and defending women’s rights.

THE BURQA –  This movie far and away deserves the top spot. The Burqa boasts the most explosive premise of any of the films on this list and plays like a combination of Robert Rodriguez’s El Mariachi trilogy, Spaghetti Westerns and post-apocalypse actioners like The Road Warrior. The main character is a mysterious gun-wielding Muslim woman who calls herself the Burqa for the garment that Muslim fundamentalists insist women wear. The cloaked heroine travels battle-scarred Iraq blowing away Islamists who oppress women physically or intellectually.

Mascot with demo and repub headsTO THE FOURTH POWER – A mock documentary that deals with the way in which the Democratic and Republican Parties have become little more than rival gangs of white collar criminals whose elected officals represent their party’s interests and not the interests of the people who elected them. The mockumentary starts with fictional depictions of Continue reading
