Alternatives to This Year’s Oscar-nominated Movies

Here is a roster of older films that I think have merit



I’ll probably skip the Academy Awards telecast on this coming Sunday, March 12. While The Good Nurse, Blonde, Empire of Light, Women Talking, The Inspection, and Elvis are overlooked, and as the way over-touted but lacking movies Everything Everywhere All at Once, The Banshees of Inisherin, Tár, and The Fabelmans have gained the brunt this year’s Oscar nominations, I can safely say that 2022 was among the worst years in my 48 years of being a movie fan.

If too many of this year’s Oscar-nominated movies also leave you cold, I can understand why. Alternatively, here is a roster of films in no particular order that I think have merit, and will take your mind off the dismal state of film making.

* Zero Dark Thirty,
* The Hurt Locker,
* The Third Miracle,
* Enemy at the Gates,
* Shakespeare in Love,

Overcome Leftist Propaganda: Conservative Documentaries and Extended Interviews

In ‘ultra-woke’ America finding media outlets and information vehicles that report the truth is challenge.



Being middle-of-the-road or conservative in today’s insanely ‘woke’ America means having a hard time finding media outlets and information vehicles that report the truth. We are all far too familiar with the reality confronting us on a daily basis.

The high-tech online companies, corporate America, major newspapers, major TV networks, Hollywood, and a variety of otherwise so-called ‘journalists’ maintain an incredible, indefensible slant to the left. Many border on Marxism and outright Communism. They lie by omission, by twisting narratives, or by creating stories out of whole cloth which fit their pre-selected parallaxed narratives.

Precise, not Speculative

Here, for your edification, are 12 conservative documentaries and/or lengthy interviews. Notice the care and precision with which each has been produced, offering names, dates, facts, and figures with little or no hyperbole.
