JUST A FRIENDLY REMINDER TO VOTE: Without the necessity of undo pressure, we present you a friendly reminder that it’s your civic duty to take off from your wage earning hours at your borderline secure job to feign interest in the fortune and guaranteed benefit packages of every prospective or incumbent political candidate. Do you think the television airwaves are saturated with annoying and condescending slanderous commercial spots for your benefit you unpatriotic bastards? Now suck it up and vote. This has been a friendly message from the Daughters of the American Revolution Bar & Grille.

“Don’t do as we do, do as we say!”: Mid-Term Election Edition: November 2014 Classic Film Images Quiz, Vol. 5050

     To those selfish American citizens who enter into the month of November only with eager thoughts of holiday cheer and family reunions brought on by Thanksgiving and tryptophan induced comas, it is important not to forget that life truly begins and ends on Election Day. The most important way for you to repel ISIS terrorists, proving that plans to invade our shores are futile as we are not only linked together with a fervent patriotic zeal but we’ll  probably all be dead anyway from healthcare worker induced Ebola Zgif1by Pearl Harbor Day, is to vote early and often (the Chicago way) and for either side as, let’s face it, inertia wears the same face whether painted in Blue or Red. In this spirit of political unification we present this month’s edition of the monthly tradition of froth and folly, the irrepressible Classic Film Images Quiz, brought to you by those good folks who consume and collect Skittles, the All-American breakfast candy. In this edition, we turn our focus on the world of politics in the cinema, those films which deal with the political in some form and therefore can be identified by their high quantity of content involving duplicity, sabotage, adultery, demagoguery, narcissism, unchecked egotism, finger pointing, evasion and kissing ugly babies. Your task, as always, is to flush out the titles of the twelve films represented by the following images, the first to do so receiving that award denied even the most bull headed politico: the CSR Culture Shock Award. Those failing to participate will kindly await their IRS audit. Good luck.













About chandlerswainreviews

I've been a puppet, a pirate, a pauper, a poet, a pawn and a king, not necessarily in that order. My first major movie memory was being at the drive-in at about 1 1/2 yrs. old seeing "Sayonara" so I suppose an interest in film was inevitable. (For those scoring at home- good for you- I wasn't driving that evening, so no need to alert authorities.)Writer, critic and confessed spoiler of women, as I have a tendency to forget to put them back in the refrigerator. My apologies.
