Glass Houses

Paul Helmke's latest Huffpo rant goes on about the Grammy Awards 'glorifying' guns w/ their usual dramatic onstage antics.

Perhaps he forgets the type of movies one of his biggest stalwarts makes.

I was surprised at how good the latest Rambo was. II & III Sucked SO MUCH, but I & IV were great.

As a general rule as a film-buff and a conservative, I simply choose to hang my ideology on a peg when I watch movies.

If I only watched libertarian or conservative films, or Ultra-Liberal films that attempt to parody conservatives in such a way that they end up glorifying them.

(Watchmen comes to mind, I personally think that Rorschach is Alan Moore's vision of what all conservatives are like...and generally he's the most liked and admired character in the film...doesn't hurt that Zach Snyder is one of us. Dawn of the Dead has some of the best on-screen gun handling I've ever seen.)
