Gentleman Broncos and the Illusion of Popular Opinion


By Daniel Shultz


Gentleman Broncos was released in 2009. It was a gigantic flop at the box office and got thrashed by critics. The film was written by Husband and Wife filmmakers Jared and Jerusha Hess, who are best known for their film Napoleon Dynamite(2004). While that film become a cult classic and has engendered love within those who appreciate its quirky plot-less presentation, the subsequent films from the Hesses have not faired well. Nacho Libre (2006) their follow up to Napoleon Dynamite succeeded at the box office but received poor reviews. Then in 2009 came Gentleman Broncos, after the near 100 million box office of Nacho Libre Gentleman Broncos grossed a pitiful $118,192 at the box office. The critical reception reflected the opinion of audiences, with Rotten Tomatoes reporting in at 18%. The question then needs to be asked do these two markers of determine whether a film is good or bad?

The Eyes of the Dragon: a Review


By Daniel Shultz


            This is only the second fiction novel I’ve read by the “Master of Horror” Stephen King, the other being The Dead Zone (although I’m halfway through The Stand), and I, in honor of an adaption of a book I’ll never read coming out this week, decided now was a good time to review The Eyes of The Dragon.

Super Bowl Whiners and Winners.

This article is the debut article for our new writer Matthew Shultz


The 2017 Super Bowl
By Matthew Shultz

Our country has always loved upsets. During our early years, we faced the most powerful military that the world had ever seen. The British Empire spanned the entire globe with seemingly limitless resources. Despite this, however, the American people rose up and did the impossible. In 1941 the Americans once again declared war on an unstoppable force, the axis forces of Germany, Japan and Italy. Through determination and God’s will, we won again. Despite our victory, we were left with a daunting task, to lead the world. Never had so much power resided in the hands of so few. With rapidly evolving technology, the ability to control many has become a nightmare seen only by science-fiction writers.
