Other than Oscar...

Where were King Kong, Chronicles of Narnia, Harry Potter, Batman, and Star Wars last night? (Snubbed..."Star Wars: Episode III" was.)

The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences doesn't seem to like popular movies, opting instead to send a message.

If you weren't excited about the movies that The Academy promoted last night at the Oscars, you may want to check out some of these conservative-minded DVD's.

Ben Stein hit's the nail on the head here...
Hollywood is above all about self: self-congratulation, self-promotion, and above all, self-protection. This is human and basic, but let's not kid ourselves. There is no greatness there in the Kodak theater. The greatness is on patrol in Kirkuk. The greatness lies unable to sleep worrying about her man in Mosul. The greatness sleeps at Arlington National Cemetery and lies waiting for death in VA Hospitals.

God help us that we have sunk so low as to confuse foolish and petty boasting with the real courage that keeps this nation and the many fools in it alive and flourishing on national TV.
