My new Taki article is now up at TakiMag.com:
Every so often, an action hit comes out of nowhere–Mad Max, Terminator, Ricci v. DeStefano. Inevitably, we start hoping that the big budget follow-up can keep the same excitement going, just with huger explosions. A few times–Road Warrior, Terminator II–our dreams come true.
I’ve got to say, though, that this Ricci sequel, The Senate Sotomayor Hearing, has so far been the dullest successor since Matrix Reloaded.
Can’t anybody afford a decent script doctor?
You might almost imagine that Sotomayor was crafted to drive away its audience. It’s as if the people in Washington don’t really want American citizens paying attention.
