Tag: We Both Know These Children Have No Future!
I’ve seen so many movies over my years on the planet, that it is pretty hard to surprise me. But when a movie goes right when I expected it to go left (see: Fight Club, The Usual Suspects, and the Sixth Sense), I’m generally pleased. Not all surprises are good, of course (see: M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village). Not all surprises are good, of course (see: M. Night Shyamalan’s The Village). The recently released Jessica Biel thriller The Tall Man certainly did surprise me. At approximately the forty minute mark, the movie veers off the proverbial rails. It’s a great twist that elevates the Tall Man into not just a good movie (I hesitate from calling it “great”), but one that makes you think about it long after it ends.
First, the premise: In a dying, small town in Washington state, children are disappearing. A local myth has sprung up about “The Tall Man,” who whisks children away never to be seen or heard from again. Cue dramatic music. (continue reading…)
I can see how that makes sense: A deaf 3-year-old from Nebraska is being asked by the school district to change his name because in sign language it resembles “weapons.” Keep it real, gangsta!
Perhaps someday, when Chicago finally has the Olympics, they’ll pay homage to some famous Chicago children’s authors like former Chicago Bull Dennis Rodman. Yes, Dennis the cross-dressing movie star basketball player is now a children’s book author.
Tattooed parents prepare to tuck your children into bed with the guaranteed solid read, Dennis the Wild Bull.
No word on if Dennis can actually read a book, but we can confirm that he has written one.
First off, I’m as shocked as anyone that the concept is experiencing a glitch. I was thoroughly convinced that a gimmicky band that closely resembled pro wrestler Goldust impersonating a Smurf would be a great solution to our country’s edumacation problems.
Alas, apparently it is not so. According to this article, the school founded by the Blue Man Group — dubbed “The Blue School” is not properly preparing kids for the real world.
