It’s been a hell of a run so far. Our most recent post, an examination of the new trend of 3D cinema written by Marissa Rose, marks our 300th post here at The Liberal Dead. It’s been fun, and educational for all of us. We started as a blog on, a group of friends […]

The Loved Ones (2010) Review by: Shawn Savage

I love going into films completely oblivious. Granted, a lot of the times the results aren’t pretty, but if you’re going in with no knowledge, and no expectations, it’s hard to be that disappointed.

A solid script, grounded in reality, and some immaculate cinematography elevate this to the top of the pack when it comes […]
