The Coming Race War Won’t Be About Race

#SmuttyCat is taking a break to ponder the state of America. Maybe humans should do the same. Too many police attacks on citizens, not criminals.

TIME

Will the recent rioting in Ferguson, Missouri, be a tipping point in the struggle against racial injustice, or will it be a minor footnote in some future grad student’s thesis on Civil Unrest in the Early Twenty-First Century?

The answer can be found in May of 1970.

You probably have heard of the Kent State shootings: on May 4, 1970, the Ohio National Guard opened fire on student protesters at Kent State University. During those 13 seconds of gunfire, four students were killed and nine were wounded, one of whom was permanently paralyzed. The shock and outcry resulted in a nationwide strike of 4 million students that closed more than 450 campuses. Five days after the shooting, 100,000 protestors gathered in Washington, D.C. And the nation’s youth was energetically mobilized to end the Vietnam War, racism, sexism, and mindless faith in the political establishment.

Comic-Con 2013: ‘Superman & Batman’ movie will follow ‘Man of Steel’

Warner Bros. is about to bring together two of its most iconic heroes: Superman and Batman will unite in a new film, the follow-up to “Man of Steel,” set for release in 2015.

According to two sources with knowledge of the movie, Warner Bros. intends to announce the news at its Comic-Con International panel Saturday morning. Said a Warner Bros. spokesperson, “We don’t comment on rumors regarding these properties.”

“Man of Steel” director Zack Snyder is expected to reunite with screenwriter David S. Goyer and star Henry Cavill for the new film. It’s unlikely Christian Bale will step back into the bat suit, as the actor has indicated publicly that he has moved on from his days as Bruce Wayne.

“Man of Steel” producer and “Dark Knight” trilogy director Christopher Nolan is expected by some to produce the project, but the exact nature of his involvement is unclear.

Finally a New Take on Zombies

SmuttySmutty likes a good zombie movie as well as the next feline, but lately the whole zombie thing has been a little flat.  Too much sameness, not enough surprises.

But now, Brad Pitt of all humans, has saved us from the dreariness of repetition.  World War Z, the zombie movie you have been waiting for.  Again, the zombies come to us in the form of a virus (what’s up with that, are they cooking some virus that might create zombies), it tracks Gerry Lane (Pitt) as he tries to find the start of the epidemic and end it.  Hey, isn’t this usually Bruce Willis’ job?

Bruce to The Rescue… Again!

Smutty NapSmutty is an action movie fan.  Not being inclined toward action himself, Smutty lives vicariously through action heroes for excitement.

There has been kind of a lull in the action at the movies since this summer’s bounty of blockbusters such as The Avengers and Batman The Dark Knight Rises.  But now, joy of joys, Bruce Willis has jumped back to Detective John McClane in A Good Day to Die Hard, coming in February, 2013.
