No Left Turns

More Self-Promo

National Review kindly asked me to contribute to their symposium on the Best 25 All-Time Conservative Movies. My contribution, ranked #10, is up over at The Corner this morning.

Mr. Hayward, it's the best conservative movies of the last 25 years.

Off the top of my head, my vote would be for Twelve Monkeys, despite its one too-pro-Gaia moment. I dearly love the part where the scientist-rulers pathetically try to sing Domino's "Blueberry Hill" to the Bruce Willis character, or where one of them says in a hurtful voice, "you said we weren't real!"

Ghostbusters not to my taste--bad music, bad 80s affection for special effects and big-name comics. I have a similar feeling for Men in Black, even though it's got its undeniably classic moments.

And while it's again more conservative in a Deneen-ian manner, I'd also vote for the criminally-neglected Sunshine State by John Sayles.
