Thunder Awards and Trailers

6 Nov

Thunder Awards

Winner of the Week: The Republican Party for taking 2 out of 3 major elections this week.  In all honestycontent.cartoonbox.slate.com though, I think that the party is better off with Owens winning the NY-26. If Conservative party candidate Bill Hoffman had won it would have empowered the purist conservative movement within the Republican party.

As much as the administration is going to play these elections down, I really do believe that it is a mini-referendum on the course they are setting for the country. Not a large indicator, but it should be a sign that certain economical factors need to be more seriously addressed. I also found it humorous that the White House basically blamed Creigh Deeds’, D-VA, loss on the fact that he didn’t stick behind administration values close enough. If anything he lost because he stuck to close to broad Democratic issue areas, and didn’t focus in on local issues.

Either way, Republican’s definitely took a step forward this week. All be it a small one.

Loser of the Week: The Gay marriage movement. Seriously Maine? Way to not come through on that one, I honestly did not see that one coming. I mean it’s New England for God sake. People up here wish we could make America more like Sweden, and Maine decides to go rough and not fit into the liberal agenda this part of the country is known for. Who saw that coming?

Trailer (s): It was a good week for trailers! This is a good weekend to go see a movie too, with The Men Who Stare at Goats, The Fourth Kind, The Box, A Christmas Carol (too soon in my mind, but whatever it looks good), and Precious (lots of Oscar buzz are it), opening this weekend.

Price of Persia – Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal,  Gemma Arterton, Alfred Molina, and Ben Kingsley. Directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). This really looks like the best video game film adaptation yet. Not that there is a lot of competition out for the crown with 4 mortal combat movies, 2 street fighter movies and a hilarious 90’s staple Super Mario Brothers.

Salt– The Female Bourne Identity, with Angelia Jolie. Also Starring: Liev Schreiber,   Chiwetel EjioforGaius Charles (aka Smash on Friday Night Lights). Directed by Phillip Noyce (The Saint, Clear and Present Danger, Patriot Games).

    Hahaha “purist conservative movement.”

    She was NOT a Republican at even the most liberal side of things. She is a pro-Union, pro-big government candidate, that not only doesnt jive with conservatives, it doesnt jive with the basic Republican party.

    When will you so-called moderates learn that this basic principle. When people have a choice between Coke and Shaws brand Coke they always pick Coke. So when the voter has a chance to vote for the Republican acting like a Dem or the Dem, they always choose the wrong thing.

    That appeasement mentality will lose seats faster than conservatives would…
