My apologies for being absent from this blog for the past few weeks.  Work details and life over at Blake's Think Tank have kept me busy.  That's and it's been relatively calm on the movie front.  I haven't been to a movie in three weeks, which feels weird.  I debated, for a second, going to see "10,000 B.C."  I didn't.  I've heard good things about "Miss Pettigrew Lives for a Day," with Frances McDormand and Amy Adams.  But I haven't been to see it.

Through 10 weeks of 2008 I've seen three new releases: "Cloverfield," "27 Dresses" and "Vantage Point."  That's pitiful, I know.  But I am more encouraged by two films opening this weekend:  Michael Haneke's "Funny Games" starring Naomi Watts, Michael Pitt and Tim Roth, and "City of Men" directed by Paolo Morelli and produced by Fernando Meirelles ("City of God" "The Constant Gardener").   Both open at Matt Smith's  Market Street Cinema.

In other movie news, we have a trailer for "The Incredible Hulk" starring Ed Norton.

    It's the slowest for movies. "Watchmen," the much anticipated film adapted from, arguably, the greatest graphic novel of all time, has stirred the emotions of critics.

  • Donald Trump is historically unpopular — and not necessarily where you think

    My colleagues John Ray and Jesse Bacon and I estimate, in the first analysis of its kind for the 2018 election season, that the president's waning popularity isn't limited to coastal cities and states. The erosion of his electoral coalition has spread to The Natural State, extending far beyond the college towns and urban centers that voted for Hillary Clinton in 2016. From El Dorado to Sherwood, Fayetteville to Hot Springs, the president's approval rating is waning.
  • Arkansans join House vote to gut Americans with Disabilities Act

    Despite fierce protests from disabled people, the U.S. House voted today, mostly on party lines, to make it harder to sue businesses for violating the Americans with Disabilities Act. Of course Arkansas congressmen were on the wrong side.
