My new Taki article is now up at TakiMag.com:
Every so often, an action hit comes out of nowhereâ€”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 timesâ€”Road Warrior, Terminator IIâ€”our dreams come true.
Iâ€™ve got to say, though, that this Ricci sequel, The Senate Sotomayor Hearing, has so far been the dullest successor since Matrix Reloaded.
Canâ€™t anybody afford a decent script doctor?
You might almost imagine that Sotomayor was crafted to drive away its audience. Itâ€™s as if the people in Washington donâ€™t really want American citizens paying attention.
