Nice review. I agree, Oblivion was nice to look at. And I thought Cruise did a fine job in his performance. But the movie lacked soul. For my money, the one highlight was Morgan Freeman in the cast. Freeman is one of those actors who can elevate a cast and a movie.

Steve Forbes brought this to the forefront when he ran for president. Our tax code desperately needs change. It astonishes me that we have the highest corporate tax rate in the civilized world. And we get upset when companies send jobs overseas? Great article, Micah. Love the Star Trek reference, too!

I don't know if it's obvious but...I like movies. And I like writing about them.

If you grew up in the 1980s here are a few thrillers that you might remember. Please comment on the article and let me know what 80s thrillers I left out.

Here's another piece I wrote published at WhatCulture, about 1970s movies - specifically thrillers.

Introduction
Although James Kirk received a degree in Journalism from the University of South Carolina, he wound up pursuing a career in data center technology in Seattle, Washington, where his love of writing and film resulted in several unproduced screenplays, one of which, Chasing Devils, finished as a finalist in the American Zoetrope screenplay competition.
 
Kirk returned to South Carolina in 2010 and has busied himself with a number of projects including opening a coffee bar, authoring a job search manual, and performing market research for several national brands. He also works as a copy writer and contributes to on-line publications including The Lexington Anchor and WhatCulture.com. His story was included in the bestseller The $100 Start-Up by Chris Guillebeau.
 
Presently Kirk works in brand development with The Hill Company and serves as co-director of StoryboardAmerica.org. He lives in Lexington, South Caroliona, with his wife and daughter and a Labrador retriever named Polly.
