Steven John Hibbs / The Tonka Report – November 9, 2009

Having the day off as Tropical Storm Ida sped north through the Gulf of Mexico toward the Panhandle of Florida, bypassing the Central coast and leaving us with nothing more than some wind, rain and clouds, I was tuned in to The Alex Jones Show.

While listening, AJ was interviewing Jon Ronson who wrote the book that the new movie The Men Who Stare At Goats was based upon. In the middle of the interview I had to run an errand and happened to look up at the marquee of The Beach Theater as I passed by in my car and noticed that the movie was actually premiering there. So I went to see it.

To be honest, the movie was not all that great. However, the satirical way in which real information was both subtly infused and sometimes right in your face, was clever indeed. Would I see it again? Probably not. Is it worth a matinee look? Sure… – SJH
