Joss and WGA

Joss Whedon has been posting about the WGA strike over at Whedonesque all week. I particularly love his latest post on the best strike movies of all time. My particular favorite:

#2: NEWSIES. Oh, you knew this was coming. The wonderful irony of Disney making a children’s fable about the power of workers’ unions was lost on me when I first saw it (it was not lost on the L.A Weekly). The politics of this film are clear, intelligent and uplifting. And the songs are catchy. And Batman’s in it. (And hearing my children walking around the house singing “No one can make us give our rights away” makes all of this a lot easier.) Is it dorky? YOU’RE dorky! Dork.

I really loved that movie as a kid, along with White Fang. Mostly because of the adolescent Christian Bale singing. I still remember a fair number of lyrics.

Right, fighting now the overwhelming urge to netflix this and/or go to Santa Fe.

Carry on.

Re: And the world will know!
I think for hetero females in our age group, this film combined with Ethan Hawke in White Fang was like the first sexual wakening if not the "okay maybe boys aren't so bad." Seriously. There should be a paper on it.
