Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard star in a “Casablanca” wannabe called “Allied.” This romantic WWII drama features Pitt as a Canadian intelligence officer who falls in love with a French Resistance fighter (Cotillard) who may -or may not- be a Nazi spy. While Susan and Russ found some things to admire, they agreed about the movies weaknesses as well.

Earnest performances and good intentions don’t always lead to good movies. “Man Down” is a case in point. Shia LaBeouf gives a solid turn as a U.S. Marine who, upon his return home from serving in Afghanistan, discovers that his wife and child have fallen into the hands of some chaotic force. Is this a mystery, a sci-fi story or an apocalyptic drama? The answer isn’t clear until the movie’s final moments. Sadly, this well-meaning film never gets a grip on its subject and comes off as forced and pretentious instead of heartfelt and impassioned.

If there is a bird lover in your family, you may want to consider taking them to see “The Eagle Huntress.” This beautifully photographed documentary tells the story of a 13-year-old girl who lives in the mountainous region of Kazakhstan. Her dream is to follow in her father’s footsteps, capturing and training a wild eagle for hunting. She meets steep resistance from the other hunters in their very patriarchal society. The film unfolds at a very leisurely pace, so it’s not for young children. But for those with an interest in all things aviary or in search of a film about female empowerment, “The Eagle Huntress” delivers.

Also opening this week, Sonia Braga stars in “Aquarius,” the story of a sixtysomething woman, the last tenant of an apartment complex, who wages war with the developer who wants her out. “The Love Witch” is an unrated horror drama that pays homage to genre films of the 60s. “Keep Watching” is a horror thriller about a home invasion televised around the country. “Believe” is a faith-based drama about a financially strapped small town struggling to fund their Christmas pageant. Screenland Theaters are featuring the annual Arts and Crafts Festival, showcasing a number of films and brews. Information is available at screenland.com.

Tom Huffman interviews Mike Dean about American Promise and Spencer Graves about Represent.Us.  AmericanPromise.net is working with Move to Amend and Wolf PAC to pass local initiatives supporting a constitutional amendment to declare that corporations are not people, and money is not speech. Represent.Us is organizing local initiatives to pass the American Anti-Corruption Act, which is a collection of measures to stop political bribery by overhauling lobbying and ethics laws, end secret money by dramatically increasing transparency, and give every voter a voice by creating citizen-funded elections.  The measures in the American Anti-Corruption Act have so far been deemed constitutional and would be useful whether or not a constitutional amendment overturned the Citizens United decision of the US Supreme Court.  Represent.Us works to bring conservatives and progressives together to pass these initiatives.  Represent.Us groups in eight states succeeded in getting anti-corruption measures passed on Nov. 8.  This included the first state-wide measure, in South Dakota plus local measures in CA, IL, OR, ME, MD, MO, and RI.  In addition, California voters approved a measure, “Prop 59” to support overturning Citizens United.

The American Anti-Corruption Act was initially drafted in 2011 by Republican Trevor Potter, who was nominated as head of the Federal Election Commission under Democratic President Clinton.  The drafting process included consultations with dozens of strategists, democracy reform leaders and constitutional attorneys from across the political spectrum.  Potter also supports American Promise.
