Happy Birthday Joe Kane, aka The Phantom of The Movies®

That’s right, cats. Only the Warrior of the Weird Reels, the Phantom of the Movies, the everlasting Joe Kane can save us from the unimaginable terrors of ZONE-65. Who better suited, than he who sat in the sticky squalor of thousands of midnight marquees in the crumbling shell of New York City in the 1970s? Joe Kane wandered the mean streets, he rode the dark cinematic rails of joy and decadence.

Who but Joe Kane might be worthy of inheriting the scepter formerly held by the likes of Forry Ackerman and Larry Flint? Who but the Phantom breaks his brain and back every spring, summer, fall, and winter to bring you the very best in reportage from the front lines of psychotronic cinema? Huh? Nobody. That’s right, nobody.

So give it up for the kid who still gets a woody when he hears the clack-clack of a movie projector, let’s make some noise for the reporter filing dispatches from the dark side of the screen.  All hail the Phantom, and many happy returns! Pay him a visit at the always groovy VideoScope. Do it now!

12 Reasons to Boycott “Game of Thrones” in 2012

by S. Billings

Sorcery, sexuality and socialism make for a nasty threesome. Yet one television program is not afraid to promote this agenda to America’s young adults. Games of Thrones, the newest hit on the HBO Station, has truly broken the barriers of decency with this offensive science fiction action series and it’s about time that parents took notice.

Aimed specifically at the male teen demographic, with a specific emphasis on the awkward and the outsiders amongst them, this series is an obscene fairy tale of beasts and wizards, promiscuous “wenches” and bare-chested knights. With its plotlines of paganistic deviancy, occult violence and anti-Christian propaganda, it has been incredibly successful at luring immature boys of all ages into the raunchy domain of adult cable entertainment.

In essence, Game of Thrones is a poorly produced copy of Mel Gibson’s Braveheart with a dash of smut straight out of Hustler Magazine added to spice up the frustratingly complicated drama. It can be preachy and pretentious one moment, and decidedly X-rated the next. You will witness effeminate men having sex in bathtubs while speaking about dragons, dead bodies splayed out in satanic pentagrams in the snow and some of the most artificial acting ever broadcast on the small screen.

How can such an illicit program be allowed on American television? Does it pose risks for our children? Can Christians voice their outrage and have the show censored or cancelled? Below are twelve solid arguments for boycotting Game of Thrones in the coming year.

1. Sexual abnormality, including incest and lesbianism, appears in graphic detail.
From casual rape to group orgies, each episode of Game of Thrones has something astonishing for viewers. For many children, this will be the first time they are introduced to wanton fornication. Will they choose to experiment like this in real life?

2. Witchcraft is presented as empowering while Christian values are utterly insulted.
Deadly potions and menacing spirits dominate the storyline, but there is no mention of Jesus despite the fact that His love was the backbone of wisdom in the Middle Ages.

3. There is far too much violence and this prevents the overall plot from ever becoming compelling.
Do we really need to see all these bloody close-ups of beheadings and elaborate jousts? It just doesn’t contribute anything educational to the viewing experience.

4. Emilia Clarke is such an untalented actress that her only role in the show is to be eye candy for pedophiles.
This pretty young girl unfortunately lacks the intellect or the sophistication to appear on prime time television. The producers seem to know this and require her to disrobe in every scene. Her gentle, undeveloped teenage body does not evoke womanhood, but the innocence of a lost child, alone on the side of a highway and ripe for the picking.

5. By depicting the traditional heterosexual family unit as dysfunctional and a socialistic revolutionary army as an ideal alternative, the show reveals its underlying communist bias.
Should it come as any surprise that author George R. R. Martin, a power broker in liberal Hollywood, named the dominating spirit of these soldiers “The Red God”?

6. Actor Peter Dinklage, who plays a dwarf on the show, has become the poster child for sodomy amongst America’s youths.
Children identify with Dinklage because of his small size and comical accent, but his obsession with anal penetration crosses the boundaries into pure propaganda. How many children will watch the little man and want to try his grunty thrusts at home?

7. At times, the series appears to be little more than an excuse to display illicit homosexual scenarios.
Flamboyant costumes, effeminate longhaired men, boys shaving each other’s armpits… Add to this the voluptuous, swarmy acting style of gay porn star Kit Harington (who plays sycophant Jon Snow) and you’ll feel like you’ve been transported to a San Francisco bathhouse full of the apes from Star Trek.

8. The Irish actors willfully glamorize severe alcoholism.
The ignominy of Ireland has always been the weakness of its people when it comes to alcohol indulgence. Why must Games of Thrones attempt to find humor in such a national disgrace?

9. Pet wolves and dragons mirror demonic spirit guides in pagan cosmology.
When you pair up children with conduits of divination, you are inviting them to experiment in spiritually reckless ways. Sadly, atheism and Satanism await them down this path.

10. The show is incredibly difficult for adults to understand.
Most parents will find the thick European accents of the actors confusing. The story, vamped up from the original book, is frustrating for its leaps of logic and implausible romantic scenes. The producers of Games seem to understand this and have crafted the series so that it intentionally turns away older viewers. Should we be suspicious that they have worked so hard to have some private alone time with America’s children?

11. There are no positive role models.
It may sound a bit old fashioned, but what ever happened to the strong male figures we had on shows like Little House on the Prairie and Touched by an Angel? Instead we have Littlefinger and androgynous Joffrey Baratheon prancing about as heroes for today’s confused young men who appear to be insanely obsessed with this outrageous series.

12. The moody, dark cinematography will make teens depressed.
Many youth subculture groups, including Goths and Skinheads, prefer to inhabit the world of the night. In darkness they find convenient cover to master their addiction to drugs and sexual violence. Does Games of Thrones actively promote marijuana usage and rape? Should parents really sit idly by as we await the answer to this important question?
