In the spirit of the great “Mister First Nighter”, Murray Rothbard’s movie critic review pen name, Robert and I analyze popular movies from a Anarcho-Capitalist perspective.

We use movies as a starting point for people who may not be familiar with this way of thinking. Discussion of the plot and decisions that characters make in relation to morality and violations of the non-aggression principle are our bread and butter.

We also will highlight and discuss any themes or lessons from Austrian Economics that we can glean from the film.
The point is to show what anarchy actually is with instances that are presented in film.

Sometimes it's just the two hosts talking and sometimes featuring guests in the Liberty movement such as Walter Block, Adam Kokesh, and members of the Tom Woods Elite, and more...

We publish on Sundays and for holidays or other special events as available.

    Episode 174 - Police Story (1:25:30)

    Episode 174 - Police Story (1:25:30)

    This is what a Police Story looks like. We get a view of Hong Kong in the 80's back when the police had quaint levels of authority. Sharply contrast that with the jackboot tactics of late that have stifled protest and dissent. We invite Shaine Scalph of HAPA Supremacy / What’s HAPAning to discuss the Jackie Chan action-classic, "Police Story".

    An honest Hong Kong cop protecting a Triad boss's girlfriend-turned-informer, finds himself framed for the murder of a dirty cop and going on the run. The movie mixes slapstick with wild stunts and features some painful outtakes during the final credits.

    Join us next week as we hop on the train to egalitarianism and talk about “Snowpiercer” with Olof the Anarcho-Viking.

    Episode 172 - Edge of Darkness (1:11:44)

    Just in case there wasn't enough toxic masculinity last week, we are going to up the dose tonight as we discuss the "Edge of Darkness" with the Professional A*****e.

    When the only daughter of a Boston homicide detective, Thomas Craven (Mel Gibson), is shot on his doorstep, everyone assumes that he was the intended target. Then evidence suggests otherwise, and Craven sets out to find her killer and, in the process, uncovers her secret life, corporate coverups, government collusion, and murder.

    Mel Gibson plays the same role he often plays as an aggrieved man seeking justice for something done wrong to a family member. The old man's still got it in this one that marks his return to acting after a bit of an unplanned hiatus.

    We’ll talk about whistle-blowers, trusting the politicians and the false flags on this one - it gets a little spicy, but nothing our audience can't handle.

    Join us next week, if we're still around, to talk about another virus and the panic that ensued from it when we talk about HIV and AIDS form its early days with returning guest, Jon Reed and his movie selection, "And the Band Played On:.

    Episode 171 - The Last of the Mohicans (1:00:21)

    Episode 171 - The Last of the Mohicans (1:00:21)

    We reach way back into Elizabeth Warren’s family tree to the colonial period in America. After our recent episode tracking the course of disease from Bats in Australia for “Batman” through the pandemic spreading across the land in “Contagion”, now it’s time to break out the Smallpox blankets for Michael Mann’s take on “The Last of the Mohicans”.

    The last members of a dying Native American tribe, the Mohicans -- Uncas (Eric Schweig), his father Chingachgook (Russell Means), and his adopted half-white brother Hawkeye (Daniel Day-Lewis) -- live in peace alongside British colonists. But when the daughters (Madeleine Stowe, Jodhi May) of a British colonel are kidnapped by a traitorous scout, Hawkeye and Uncas must rescue them in the crossfire of a gruesome military conflict of which they wanted no part: the French and Indian War.

    Just in case that wasn’t enough toxic masculinity for you, we’ll be sure to double-up next week as we bring back the Professional A*****e to discuss the Mel Gibson flick, “Edge of Darkness”.

    Episode 170 - Contagion (1:22:08)

    We are joined by Raylene Lightheart and her lesser-half to talk about the movie "Contagion" about a global pandemic that some have mistaken as footage of current events. This should be a healthy discussion on a serious topic that will be both thought-provoking and entertaining.

    With the COVID-19 Coronavirus seemingly creating a panic worldwide where even Costcos in the US are having trouble keeping up with demand, it's a timely movie to be discussing. There is this weird mix of withholding and downplaying information to what appears to be fear-mongering and the use of the handling of the "crisis" as a bludgeon against the opposing sides in an already testy election cycle.

    Join us next week as we welcome back to the stage, Mr. Mike C. to discuss yet another Michael Mann film, "The Last of the Mohicans".

    Episode 169 - Batman (1:21:29)

    Episode 169 - Batman (1:21:29)

    It’s hard to believe it was over 30 years ago that this movie kicked off the comic book movie era once again (and nearly killed it a few sequels later). We are of course talking about Tim’ Burton’s Batman from 1989.

    We bring back Shaheen, our man from Adelaide for this one as he is our go-to for all things Batman and DCEU.

    Set the scene: the last time we see Batman and Joker on screen, it's Adam West and Cesar Romero surfing with sharks that Fonzie later jumped over, anti-shark spray in the campy 60's TV show. Then you've got the director of Pee-Wee's Big Adventure making a film starring Mr. Mom as Barman, and of the the great actors of his generation dictating his own shooting schedule complete with top-billing. To say people were concerned would be an understatement.

    Next week, we come down with something as we bring back Raylene Lightheart and her lesser-half for a discussion of “Contagion”.
