Many people ask where Helga and I (Vinnie) met. It was at a Jesus Freak festival in the days of my squandered youth. Some brownies were going around that tasted funny and the next thing I know, I'm married to a hippie. But she was cute, and I wouldn't serve a church that hired a divorced pastor, so we are still together till Judgement Day, when I assume we will go our seperate ways. Let me (Helga) add, that it seems the Universe brought Vinnie and I together, who am I to argue. He does have a judgmental nature though, which I find unforgivable.

Vinton here on 2007 Fall Films to Avoid

"There Will Be Blood"

Now I know I am writing this on the Sabath, but just as Jesus healed on the Sabath I think it is worthwhile to use this day to save people from the cauldron of sin. You can tell Hollywood is up to their usual no goodness when they change titles. Who can forget when they came out a film titled "About Last Night..." to hide its real origin, "Sexual Perversity in Chicago". Paul Thomas Anderson used this new title to hide the fact that it is based on the novel "Oil!" by Upton Sinclair. Yes, that Upton Sinclair, notorious liberal. He ran for public office as a Socialist (and later as a Democrat, big difference), founded the California ACLU and experimented with the occult (his book, "Mental Radio" was about telepathy and the seances.) You know, my grandfather said that meat never tasted as good after he wrote the novel "The Jungle" (grandda said that cleaning up the slaughterhouses took much of the exotic flavoring from the meat.)
Anyway, considering Sinclair's commie background I would expect this film won't have much good to say about the oil industry and without the oil industry (as I'm sure Helga would wish) we would be using horse and buggies, but groups like PETA and PASA will keep up from using the horses so we will be pulling our own buggies, thank you very much.
I did hear in the trailer the use of the song "There is Power in the Blood", a favorite of mine and probably the only decent number Marty Robbins ever did.
I also heard that this is a violent film, as perceptive may discern from the title. If you want violence just read the book of Judges.
As always, if you want entertainment, just listen to a good sermon.
