  1. Worst movies of 2019 – Wow, what a mess of tripe in that list. I tried to watch Murder Mystery with my wife and bailed on in after 15 minutes. As for the rest of the dung heap, no, never saw any of them. I think it costs a lot of money to make just about any movie and then you throw in a known actor and that costs a lot so the question I have had for some time is who watches this stuff?

  2. RE: Worst movies (which, actually, is a highly competitive genre with a nearly endless number of candidates); I’ve seen, for a few minutes at least, several candidates for the honor and have always wondered just what the Hell the actors were thinking. Did they know the movie was absolute cinema excrement and did it anyway, did they do it because they were incredibly desperate for any work at all, or did they not know how just bad it was?

    1. The thing about ‘Worst Movies’ lists is that they almost always concentrate on fairly big budget films. Ok, DOOLITTLE stank. It was fairly clearly shot, the colors were bright, and none of the actors I saw in any of the clips struck me as cases of “why can this person still get work?”. Each year, the ‘worst’ listing focus on the big name flops that the reviewer loathed, and doesn’t touch the direct-to-streaming drivel that was incoherently shot, badly lighted, and acted by people with the emotional chops of pottery.

  3. “Fears grow that Africa could collapse…” back to a state of such obvious chaos that A) Transnational Aid Workers would lose their jobs for ostentatious incompetence. B) A return to old fashioned Victorian paternalistic colonialism might begin to look like the only morally defensible option.

    1. B) is what the Chinese are trying to do right now… because Communists ignore history and human nature. It’ll end just the same as the Victorian stuff did.

  4. yeah. We will be at war somewhere with china directly or through a proxy by fall. Worst case puts it in Africa. I am to old but one daughter is in the air guard and the boy is 18 now, so worried about them more than anything else.
