mittcaptphillipsMitt is available on Netflix and Captain Phillips is rentable on DVD. Both have some bottom line moments as documentary (or quasi-documentary) that make them worth a viewing on the small screen.

Essentially an endearing home movie, Mitt reminded me that Andrew Breitbart was right – politicians, at least those leaning right, are running against the Media. Candy Crowley, changing the course of Mitt’s presidential debate, brought us to our feet, yelling at the TV (both Mitt and Candy).

Whether the movie account of Captain Phillips’ 2009 encounter with Somali pirates is accurate or not, it brings home the realization that having a gun to defend your ground is pretty important – and a few Navy Seals make a difference as well.
