Paranormal Activity

I recently watched the 2009 film, Paranormal Activity. This is a haunted house horror film that employs a hyperrealist approach reminiscent of The Blair Witch Project, where the actors do their own filming using a digital video camera, the acting is virtually improvised, and the result is presented as “found footage.”The story is simple: a twenty-something suburban couple,...

Through a Feminist Looking Glass

My earliest childhood literary experiences involved the likes of Brothers Grimm, Alexander Afanasiev, Charles Perrault, Astrid Lindgren, Hans Christian Andersen, and, of course, Lewis Carroll. Nowadays, these books are customarily shoved to the back of the children’s section at the bookstore (if they’re stocked at all). (I checked. Many times.) They’ve been...

More of . . . A Conversation About RaceA Film by Craig Bodeker Denver: New Century Productions, 2010I can’t praise Craig Bodeker’s path-breaking 58 minute documentary A Conversation About Race too highly.

My wife and I just finished the first season of Friday Night Lights (the television show, not the movie).

Avatar the Movie:
“How does it feel to be a race traitor?”

A friend tricked me into seeing the new movie, Avatar, and sort of waited , grinning I think, for my reaction.First, let me warm up your neurons a bit. Think Tarzan, Bladerunner, The Last Samurai, fantasy comic books, Pocahontas, made for TV movies, and especially Edmund Connelly on “Reel Bad White” movies. Think tree-huggers, New Age old Liberals chanting and swaying;...

The Aryan Values of Avatar

The film Avatar is a huge commercial and cultural success. In White Nationalist circles, however, the blockbuster often is labeled as anti-white. (See here, here, and here for examples.) This interpretation of the film illustrates four problems currently manifest in the White Nationalist movement:The tendency to see only skin color when discussing race;A lack of knowledge...

It also seeks to build personal relationships...

The Meaning of Avatar

To a certain degree a book, a poem, or a movie can mean what we want them to mean. That is, in addition to the objective thing, there is our subjective reception of it. If a poem, particularly, means something to me, then I am satisfied with that meaning even if the poet had no intention of conveying such a meaning, or would be appalled that anyone would interpret it that way.This...
