Movie of the Year: 1973
Enter the Dragon
This week we discuss Enter the Dragon! Can this movie fight its way to our 1973 Movie of the Year?
Enter the Dragon follows Lee, played by Bruce Lee, a shaolin monk who must leave the monastery and make his way to an island with no pistols and no guns. He must enter a fighting tournament to reclaim the honor of his family and his temple, and he has to do all this for under a million bucks.
He manages to win the tournament and defeat all opponents, even a guy who keeps replacing his hand with things less helpful than a hand. But he isn’t alone. Joining him are Roper, a washed up gambler down on his luck, but with more than enough skill to hold his own. And Williams an unconventional fighter whose character was rewritten to die because the guy playing Roper didn’t want his character to be the one who died.
Is the action elevated? Can Bruce Lee be the most iconic star we have ever featured? Is this movie the best? We get into it!
Abortion is healthcare
While Americans overwhelmingly support the right of an individual to make their own decisions about abortion, unfortunately, that right is no longer protected everywhere in the U.S.
The Supreme Court overturned Roe versus Wade on June 24th.
Abortion is a basic healthcare need for the millions of people who can become pregnant. Everyone should have the freedom to decide what’s best for themselves and their families, including when it comes to ending a pregnancy. This decision has dire consequences for individual health and safety, and could have harsh repercussions for other landmark decisions.
Restricting access to comprehensive reproductive care, including abortion, threatens the health and independence of all Americans. Even if you live in a state where abortion rights are upheld, access to safe medical procedures shouldn’t be determined by location, and it shouldn’t be the privilege of a small few.
