    Political Thrillers!

    in Movies

    There was a time, when talking about politics, was taboo. Today, it is common place to read, or hear about one political view or another; expressed openly; and in some case violently.  With so many political scandals being revealed, one tends to wonder what else is being covered up; and in the name of “Diplomacy” of all things. We, as a nation, have given a lot of power, to a few people. People we trust to make “right decisions”, for the good of the country; are those the only decisions being made…”right decisions”? “Too much power in the wrong hands”, can cause chaos. What about “too much power” in the right hands? Good intentions, don’t always deliver good results; then what about “bad intentions”. Politics, Scandals, Greed, Power, Violence; how do we begin figuring it all out? Tonight we’ll tackle “Political Thrillers”. We welcome back “Movie Maven” Ms. Karen D.” to give us her spin on the four, politically based, films up for review!
