Poverty Simulation, Part Three: Tough Choices

Poverty Simulation, Part Three: Tough Choices

I arrived at the Pawn Shop & Gun Store with our family's prized widescreen TVs, valued at $350 each. 'I'll give you 90 bucks,' said the cashier. As she was counting my money, I could see across the room that our chairs had already been turned upside-down and branded with the orange 'evicted' sign.

  • Parking up the wrong tree

    Parking is always a source of simmering agitas in Savannah, bit it has erupted again into the public spotlight and conversation due to the City's proposal to charge for spaces at Forsyth Park. If existing Facebook comments are a good indicator, there is not a lot of support for this move. However, it should not come as a surprise to any regular readers that I am in support.

  • Editor's Note: Depleting the civic bank account

    One recent headline is about the City of Savannah's estimated $10 million surplus. Ordinarily, that announcement might be a great headline for a City leader to see in the morning over coffee. But in Savannah's current political climate the surplus was seen by most people, fairly or unfairly, as further proof of the City's financial mismanagement.

    All you have to do is take a gander at the color of the flaky delicate bread to see that there is so much butter jammed in that the biscuit has a slight yellow tint, and every good Southerner knows that butter makes everything better.

FILM

Banff Mountain Film Fest on the road: World Tour returns to  Lucas Theatre

Banff Mountain Film Fest on the road: World Tour returns to Lucas Theatre

'Sometimes the best way to impart some environmental protection education is to inspire people to do more things outside.'

  • Review: Isle of Dogs

    Anderson’s first film since his grandly entertaining gem The Grand Budapest Hotel is a dazzling and heady achievement, employing quirky animation to relate its tale of a futuristic Japan.

  • Review: Ready Player One

    The film references come at the audience at warp speed (mostly ‘80s, but also some ‘70s and ‘90s), and if the cultural co-opting was frequently a lazy trigger on the printed page, a way to get easily impressed folks to mistake nostalgia for gravitas (“Wow, Cline mentions both Back to the Future and Knight Rider! This is the bestest book ever!”), there admittedly is some of that taking place on screen as well.

  • Review: Tomb Raider

    For a character who began life as a video game avatar, she’s quite human – and certainly more so than the protagonists in past video-game adaptations.

  • Review: A Wrinkle In Time

    For a film that traffics in imagination and phantasmagorical sights, A Wrinkle in Time is surprisingly cumbersome in its visual splendor.

  • Review: Black Panther

    Forget the real-world sociopolitical scuffle: This is a welcome addition to the Marvel playbook, an exciting and pensive drama in which actions don’t always speak louder than words.
