    For the longest time I had to turn your program off because of your shrill, overarching, desperate and constant running down of Donald Trump from the day he announced. It was enough to throw up! Where the hell were you when we had this national obamanation running first 8 then 4 years ago? I don't know if this nation will ever fully recover – the absolute worst president in the history of the US (Jimmy Carter's 2nd and third terms).

      I did the same thing and turned Michael off too. Been a huge fan of his for years and still feel betrayed. I tune in at beginning of the show now and again. Obviously still read his movie reviews.
      Dennis Prager was my guy for sure…

      "Shrill" never describes medved. Passionate, maybe; opinionated, yes; and misguided? Perhaps sometimes. But shrill – never.

    Sometimes I think I don't have an opinion different from Medved's…
    From the first kick off, I agreed with Medved's assessment of Trump…
    I listen to Michael's very interesting radio program here in Houston whenever I can..
    He's now trying to support Trump, me too…

      Why support Hollywood with your hard-earned money and their 90% Democratic registration roster? They have blacklisted Republicans for at least 50 years. You eventually get these shows on "free" cable. Your basic actor is an activist as the world can see now on display. Most are radical lunatics. They provide entertainment not essential services. They don't solve problems, they whine, cry and complain if they don't get their way. If I want to be entertained, I turn the grinder handle and the monkey dances.

      Add to this an 80% totally corrupt media and higher education systems and then ask yourself, why support any of this when what YOU and I do for a living actually benefits others – we give our hard work and talent to others daily which literally benefits their specific everyday needs. Entertainers, media and pontificating and bloviating professors who have to prove why they are relevant, are totally irrelevant by their actions.

    I haven't seen quite enough of the potentially best films of the year to weigh in on them too much yet, but on this last day of 2016 I'd like to point out a film I believe deserves much more than it got.

    It may not be worthy of being considered one of the 10 best, however I think it was easily one of the very best faith-friendly films of the year. That film is RISEN. I was actually very impressed with RISEN and up until the final quarter of the film I found it to be quite intelligent and completely plausible. But even that last quarter was about as well done as it could have been if one were going to place Clavius (a fictional character very well performed by Joseph Fiennes) in the midst of Christ and His disciples. I took away from it that the characters and dialogue were thoughtfully written and nearly each scene made logical sense. I could easily believe events unfolding very near as were depicted. It was also largely faithful to overall Biblical accounts. And as a period film with a budget of only 20,000,000 it looks quite good; I very much liked Lorenzo Senatore's approach to its cinematography. The film's music score by Roque Banos also impressed.

    It is a solid, sincere film of its type and deserves to be seen. Unfortunately, it is an underrated effort, although it appears to be gaining respect and traction within ancillary markets. Frankly, if Christians do not support worthy cinema entries such as this we receive the lack of films and the typically offered tripe that we apparently evidence ourselves to deserve.

    Arrival was number 1 for me. The sights and sounds, in particular, of that movie really grabbed me. A very life affirming movie me but few reviewers(any?) picked up on that. I simply didn't see enough movies to make a list of the ten best but a few I will mention. La La Land isn't as good as I wished but a movie about an emotion, love, is admirable and well done. I wish the leads were a little more obsessed with each other. I think I preferred Whiplash more but both are about equally well done and I consider that a compliment to La La Land. Hacksaw Ridge is a great story being converted to a good but not great movie. Pales in comparison to Saving Private Ryan. Ridge is probably the better movie but loses badly because Ryan was there first and took the power away from Ridge's battle scenes. Sully, good movie about competence. Imagine if a movie about competence was poorly shot. Movie hinges on a small point so that detracts from its over all strength, in my opinion, of course. Finally, saw BFG with some kids and we liked it but not as much as Michael. Good movie but not as magical as Michael implies.

    What about Star Wars Rogue One????!

    Noticed you didn't review 'A Man Called Ove'. Have you seen it since and if so, what were your thoughts? I enjoyed it greatly. And while the formula was a familiar one, found it was executed better than most.
