The Promise

Avengers: Infinity War

John C. Dvorak gave the big thumbs down to the movie, Avengers: Infinity War. Worse movie ever in the history of Disney or any company ever… *spoiler alert ahead* Dvorak reports that half the heroes in the Marvel comic universe are killed in the end. “Why do you want to kill everybody? Well, I’ve done the

Fahrenheit 451

Adam saw it and enjoyed it because everyone was associated with a talking tube which made it relevant to No Agenda. He also thought the visuals were similar to

UnREAL

Unreal is a TV show that takes you behind the scenes of a ficticious reality dating show.  John Dvorak says he loves this show and that this is his favorite show in this genre.  Unreal features Constance Zimmer that plays the most evil director/producer, (she’s great!) and cutie Sheri Appleby – remember Roswell on WB

Dick

Dick is about two cheerleaders that visit the Whitehouse and get mixed up with Richard Nixon’s taping chicanery. Stars the delightful Kirsten Dunst and

Get Me Roger Stone

Adam highly recommends the new Netflix documentary, Get Me Roger Stone. Dvorak has heard lots of buzz about it too and assumes it’s dynamite. Adam compared it to Adam Curtis’ Hypernormalizaiton. According to the Book of Knowledge (Wikipedia) Roger Jason Stone Jr. (born August 27, 1952) is an American political consultant,[2] lobbyist, and strategist, noted for

The Great War

PBS is now showing The Great War as part of its American Experience series.

Revealed in the series was the ministry of propaganda (CPI – Committee of Public

Snowpiercer

While discussing geo-engineering schemes, Dvorak brought up Snowpiercer, a fantastic movie. He further described it as a  dynamite sci-fi movie about a train that has to keep moving to keep the world from freezing over. Get it at Amazon. [NA 916 :22]

La La Land

Dvorak is having trouble watching La La Land. Adam asked if he went to see it in the theater and Dvorak admitted he had a DVD screener. Dvorak doesn’t like it, can’t understand why it’s the greatest thing since sliced bread-it seems dull! [NA 898 2:44]

No Agenda News Hottie: Helena Humphrey

You can now add Deutsche Welle’s Helena Humphrey to the pantheon of favorite No Agenda News presenters.

After going through the website we figured out he

The Producers

Beauty and the Beast

The new live action version of Beauty and the Beast is being banned in Russia and Malaysia – all due to a ‘gay moment’ in the film. A show producer tweeted, “I guess people are bent out of shape from the one gay scene but don’t seem to mind a woman falling in love with an

The Leftovers

Dvorak seems confused or unsure of the title of his TV recommendation,  “The Unborn , The Returns, The Returners, originally a French things call the Revenants. It’s a zombie style story without zombies!” We think he’s trying to describe HBO’s The Leftovers. From a New York Times review: The story is adapted from a novel of the same

NCAA March Madness

As the NCAA Championship, better known as March Madness heads to the final brackets, it gets real good according to John Dvorak. “Very entertaining basketball for two or three weeks – college hoops!” [NA 911 2:51]

Berlin Station

Dvorak further added the movie is

The Detour

v Dvorak has watched a new show called The Detour on TBS. At first it reminded him of the Jack Lemmon/Neil Simon play Out-Of-Towners where a guy moves to NY and a bunch of bad things start happening to him. Overall it was thought to be too cringe-worthy to be funny. Dvorak summed it up
