From Dusk Till Dawn

It’s not the best vampire movie ever made, but it damn sure has the best soundtrack

    Is there a freaky lead up to sex (that never takes place) scene in that film or am I confusing it with Natural Born Killer and Juliette Lewis’s scene in that? The soundtrack is probably the best thing and the last 30 minutes feel like they could have been ten. Favorite vampire movie of the last few decades would be that one by Katherine Bigelow. Near Dark? After that, it would be one of the B&W classics. (I’d include the Abbot & Costello films as classics.) Speaking of the undead (vampires), the press said all last week that Barack Obama was keeping his campaign promise by listening to the military commanders regarding the timeline for withdrawal. That’s a lie. I forgot it until I read Ava and C.I.’s TV article this morning where they’re reminding of Obi-None’s show boating when he had to compete against Hillary.

    In the debates, Barack was repeatedly clear that withdrawal would start immediately, take 16 months and that there would be no interference with the civilian leadership decision on that. The military could have input on ways to carry out his order but, if president, that would be the order.

    Doubt us?

    April 16, 2008 debate between Hillary Clinton and Barack, aired on ABC, moderated by Charlie Gibson and George:

    GIBSON: And, Senator Obama, your campaign manager, David Plouffe, said, “When he is” — this is talking about you — “When he is elected president, we will be out of Iraq in 16 months at the most. There should be no confusion about that.” So you’d give the same rock-hard pledge, that no matter what the military commanders said, you would give the order to bring them home?

    OBAMA: Because the commander-in-chief sets the mission, Charlie. That’s not the role of the generals. And one of the things that’s been interesting about the president’s approach lately has been to say, “Well, I’m just taking cues from General Petraeus.” Well, the president sets the mission. The general and our troops carry out that mission. And, unfortunately, we have had a bad mission set by our civilian leadership, which our military has performed brilliantly. But it is time for us to set a strategy that is going to make the American people safer. Now, I will always listen to our commanders on the ground with respect to tactics, once I’ve given them a new mission, that we are going to proceed deliberately, in an orderly fashion, out of Iraq, and we are going to have our combat troops out. We will not have permanent bases there. Once I have provided that mission, if they come to me and want to adjust tactics, then I will certainly take their recommendations into consideration. But, ultimately, the buck stops with me as the commander-in-chief.

    Dusk Til Dawn was the film where I realized Quentin Tarantino wasn’t all that talented as a screenwriter. That film gets so slow as we wait and wait and wait. His acting is pretty bad as well. I’m trying to remember the soundtrack in the movie but I really don’t place the clips above with the movie. It’s been a long time though.
    George Clooney, aka Obama’s BFF, is another huge disappointment.
    I do remember the April debate mentioned above and Hillary was promising to withdraw upon taking office. Barack was trying to steal from her as usual. He needs to be called out because he did say it was 16 months and that he’d set that ‘mission’ and the military would follow it.
