Why “Get Out” STILL Sucks–An Analysis

Like a drunk at the roulette wheel, Alabama Liberal takes one last spin to convince people “Get Out” actually sucks. What’s been mis-labeled an anti-racist or anti-Trump film is actually the most anti-interracial couple movie since “The Family that Preys Together.” I make the case that actual racists would love “Get Out” and take a stab… Read More »

Oscar Thoughts: Best Speech, Worst Snub, Best Joke, Best Song, and Why Meryl Streep Backlash May be Coming

It was a very predictable telecast. Astoundingly, I guessed the winner of every single award correctly, except the “who cares?” short film categories. I mean, when even the technical categories don’t inspire surprises, something is up. And usually, there’s at least one mild upset in the major categories (like if Laurie Metcalf had won over Allison Janney… Read More »

The 10 Movies I’m Most (and Least) Looking Forward to in 2018

Sure, there will be lots of movies coming out in the last few months of the year that aren’t even on a release calendar right now. So I apologize if this list is heavily-weighted for movies in the first half of 2018, but with that in mind this will be a pretty good starting place… Read More »

Ranking and Grading ALL 8 “Harry Potter” Films

HBOGo did something pretty clever in the last month, by putting all eight “Harry Potter” films in one place for the first time, it generated an awful lot of interest in a movie series that concluded nearly a decade ago.

How Will Sexual Misconduct Allegations Affect Awards Season?

Alabama Liberal wonders if this year’s Best Actor winner will have to give back the award on-stage…   [Update after the Golden Globes: Best Actor Winner James Franco has actually been accused of sexual misconduct IMMEDIATELY after winning. As always, Alabama Liberal calls it but nobody gives a damn because nobody’s watching.]

Every 2017 Movie Ranked from Worst to Best

I watched over 200 movies in 2017, and all and all it was a pretty solid year… The Worst Movie of 2017: “Get Out”…Just like I chose last year’s “Hacksaw Ridge” as the worst movie more for its ideological bent than because it was technically worse than any other movie, I’m choosing “Get Out” because… Read More »

The Best TV Shows of 2017!

Honorable Mentions: Although a little too uneven for the Top Ten, the final seasons of “Longmire” and “Halt and Catch Fire” were definitely things to seek out. As was the final season of “Samurai Jack,” which returned to give fans a proper send-off for this beloved character. And I’m downright excited to see what the Gorgeous… Read More »
