Like Michael Moore, Only Less Slovenly

And a lot more conservative. There are a few conservative feature films on the horizon, believe it or not. First is one from the good guys at, whose full-length film should be out in 2005. But for now, they've got a short film called Brainwashing 101, available for streaming online or for purchase.

I haven't watched it yet because my college professors taught me not to be influenced by anyone but them. As such, I'll be sending it to them, so they can tell me what to think about it. In the meantime, however, you brave, free-thinking conservative souls out there can watch it and judge academia for yourselves. Here's a short summary:

A provocative look at how universities use tools such as "speech codes" to force political views upon students. The film shines a light on political correctness, academic bias, student censorship--even administrative cover-ups of death threats--at three schools: Bucknell University, the University of Tennessee at Knoxville and California Polytechnic State University (Cal Poly).

And if your weekend nights aren't full yet, look out for "In the Face of Evil," which should be on big screens in select cities starting Oct. 1. It's about America's opposition to totalitarianism, fascism and communism throughout the 20th century, and the clear vision of Ronald Reagan in the face of those threats throughout his life. I love the trailer. One quote in the trailer from Reagan:

"There is no argument over the choice between war and peace. But there is only one guaranteed way you can have peace and have it in the next century. Surrender."

And you gotta love a film that doesn't shy away from calling communism evil, really puts these threats into the proper context and equates them with the terrorist threat we face today. I'm sure the Left will love this. I see a Best Documentary Oscar nomination, what about you guys?
