Re: “Antonia’s Last Words,” cover story.

Sweet! Made it Las Vegas with no plan to get home. Sweet! Hooked up with her former boyfriend for a couple of days. Sweet! Smoked meth with her boyfriend and friends. Sweet! Ready to blow the balance on her EBT to get snacks and pay for her way home, because that is what public assistance is for.

Not so sweet and not uncommon enough: Another moron drug user on the public dole getting whacked and thankfully receiving a way out of their useless life. The gene pool only became stronger on the day Sweet Antonia received the hot lead of justice.

Only the Brave

thumbnail

When they’re not pissing out forest fires, a group of misogynistic oafs sit around listening to heavy metal while debating the intellectual capacity of the bar tramps who agree to sleep with them. The only one who seems to be genuinely happily married is retired firefighter Jeff Bridges. Bridges gets to chaw his mushmouth while his little woman, played by Andie MacDowell, emerges from the background long enough to add, “It’s not easy to share your man with a fire.” Miles Teller does double-duty as the drug-addicted smokejumper who looks to firefighting as his rehab. (His biggest acting challenge was bleaching his eyebrows.) In the eyes of the simpleton screenwriters, those who express rage over a rotten film such as this must be pyromaniacs. Only you can prevent Hollywood from cashing in on these false heroics. Avoid this at all costs. With both Josh Brolin and Jennifer Connelly trying way too hard; Joseph Kosinski directs.

Re: Only the Brave, movie review.

What kind of idiotic review is this? Calling a true story where 19 firefighters died “false heroics” is absurd. What kind of beta male wrote this nonsense? Grow a pair, Scott.

Scott Marks responds:

When read in context, “cashing in on these false heroics” refers to the filmmakers’ simplification of real-life events in order to make bank on tragedy. Think of them as (SPOILER ALERT!) 19 dead movie characters, not actual firefighters.
