    Let us consider, for a moment,  the strained logic inherent in the Constitutional inalienable right to be contrary, hypocritical and downright stupid in certain assertions of what defines responsible conduct (not to mention what you can get away with with the backing of several managers, press agents, paid lackeys and a studio more concerned with award season statues than legal statutes) in regards to the proper function, intentions and usage of firearms by private citizens as prescribed in the 2nd Amendment (heretofore referenced as the 2nd Suggestion) as depicted by that most public exemplar of ludicrous misconduct-  the pacifist Hollywood film industry  -who best demonstrate their persistence of gratuitous moral hypocrisy by prolifically producing cinema efforts aligned with that which is unquestionably their favorite genre form: How to Kill Your Fellow Man (or, to comply with local Oregonian pronoun ordinances: How to Kill Compatible Carbon-Based Life Forms). And with that introductory contempt we bring you yet another episode of America’s most misunderstood regularly scheduled source of harmful but effervescent propaganda, the Classic Film Images Photo Quiz, brought to you during this and every other lunar phase by those wonderful folks who distribute SKITTLES, America’s favorite breakfast candy and most frequent substitute for American produced contraceptive pills exported over the Canadian border. In this edition we celebrate the unspoken but obvious secret fraternity between a publicly Guns & Ammo critical motion picture industry and their most advantaged recipient of what can only be described as fortuitous ancillary advertisement: the NRA (though not inclusive of former spokesperson Dana Loesch who lost considerable credibility when she began a campaign to force-feed America a steady diet freeze dried beet crystals). Each of the following twenty five images depicts Hollywood’s vision of civil society, pump action-style. Your task is to identify all twenty five images (correctly would be preferable) and let us know the results. (Otherwise, it’s a fruitless enterprise and will only lead to frustration and eventual insanity.) The first to correctly identify all twenty five images will receive the much discussed but banned in thirty two countries CSR Culture Shock Award. Good luck.

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.
