    By kyle | May 11, 2017

    I’m a sucker for Camelot stories, and this one is messy but highly watchable. My review.

      Clearly, multiculturalism has gotten so insane that even the founding myths of western civilization must be peopled by Asians and Africans. Well, at least the “Black Knight” will actually be black.

      King Arthur is bombing hard, while Guardians of the Galaxy 2 is another monster hit. It must frustrate Kyle Smith, that no one listens his views on film and recognizes his “brilliance”. Not that his cinematic opinions deserve any respect, of course.

      This is probably the 10,000th time I’ve written this, but if you want the box-office chart, read the box-office chart. If you think the quality of a movie is directly proportional to how much money it makes, that is all the guidance you need.

      I’m pretty sure that the intersection of the set of NRO subscribers and ticket buyers of GG2 is pretty close to the “null set”, so he’s probably right on target.

      I am an NRO subscriber and a huge Guardians fan, and I am still hoping for a conservative who can distinguish between a good film and a lousy one. It certainly is not Smith, White, or the odious John Nolte

      You should check out Collossal with Anne Hathaway, dude. 80 percent on the Tomato meter.

      I will check that one out on Netflix, when it arrives. It does look like it has potential
