DVD Talk review of 'Brass Bancroft Of The Secret Service Mysteries Collection (Secret Service of the Air, Smashing the Spy Ring, more)'

Yet again, an otherwise respectable review is tainted by blatant personal political posturing. Whether coming from right or left, it's not remotely becoming in what is supposed to be a film(s) review, not a political tract or op-ed piece.

Re: DVD Talk review of 'Brass Bancroft Of The Secret Service Mysteries Collection (

You've obviously never read some of my other reviews where I really went off the political deep end.

I went back and looked this one over, and it seemed remarkably innocuous to me (especially considering the subject of the review). If one line about unions and socialists in a four-movie, ten-paragraph review transforms the entire review into "blatant personal political posturing" and a "political tract or op-ed piece," then I would suggest you're looking for trouble where there isn't any.

And as for your supposedly "even-steven" straw man argument about the "unbecoming" insertion of either left or right personal political opinions in "film" reviews (pal, if any movies aren't "films," it's these B-programmers), I'd wager it's a safe bet you're not writing any similiar gripes about politics to any left-leaning reviewers out there--a group that absolutely dominates on-line reviewing today, by the way.
