Я You With Me?

Toys Я Us – you are not yet gone, and yet I already miss you.  I always have.  I miss my grandparents taking me there to pick out whatever I wanted for my birthday (Star Wars or GI Joe figures).  I miss grabbing those price tickets to get the latest Nintendo or Sega Genesis game.  I miss going down EVERY single aisle and dreaming of having it all (like those small motorized cars that were always too much $$$).  I miss the opportunity to enter and win Nickelodeon’s Super Toy Run, which I never had a chance of winning – but I always held out hope that I would.  The store may soon be dead, but the dream and dreams will never be.  You will always be a part of me.  You Я!

kill the messenger

I was alive (and well) in the 80s, and heard all about the Iran-Contra Affair, but had no idea what any of it meant, other than Oliver North lied to us, and Fawn Hall had people fawning all over her. That’s why need movies like Kill The Messenger – to remind us of the shadowy things and stuff that the US done did, that we either don’t know or cared to forget about. The messenger is Gary Webb (Jeremy Renner in the rare role of a good guy), a reporter for the San Jose Mercury News, who blew the lid off of a story of how the CIA backed the sale of Nicaraguan Contras’ cocaine on American soil, and turned the profits into the Contras’ ammunition for their freedom fight back home. Once the lid came off, it couldn’t be put back on – and Webb became collateral damage of his own story. The CIA and even the media itself tried to bury the lead, and the lead writer with it. Michael Cuesta‘s film solidly captures the tension and fallout for Webb/Renner, but it never quite adds up to All The President’s Men II, even with a stellar supporting cast consisting of Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Rosemarie DeWitt, Barry Pepper, Ray Liotta, Paz Vega, Oliver Platt, Michael Sheen, Richard Schiff, Andy García, Robert Patrick, Michael K Williams and Tim Blake Nelson
