Film Review  February 22, 2013, by Leah Churner
"...Perhaps to think about John Dies at the End is to overthink it: The punch line is that there is no punch line … and that’s the punch line. A horror comedy custom-tooled for a midnight theatrical audience, it should only be viewed in that context, buoyed by the chemistry of a packed house and a few pints of liquid courage..."

Last Ounce of Courage
A dead veteran's family heals their loss through their "free speech" battle to save Christmas from the godless ACLU.

Film Review  September 21, 2012, by Marc Savlov
"...What to make of this hysterical screed from somewhere in America where Christmas, and therefore Christ, is under attack from all sides? I sure don't notice such goings-on in Austin, which goes out of its way to light up everything from the Capitol to the entire length of South Congress. The Paramount Theatre screens Miracle on 34th Street while the Alamo gets "High for the Holidays." (Everyone else is at the elliptically spiritual Tim Burton's The Nightmare Before Christmas, which, dead folk aside, celebrates true love, surely any deity's greatest gift.) Not only that, Austin tends to produce movies considerably more subtle than a sledgehammer blow (cue Fred Williamson as a Grinchy ACLU-type) to a sparkly, sweet-smelling pine, which is what Last Ounce of Courage amounts to..."

Capitol Chronicle
The new Congressional districts alter the political makeup of Central Texas.
News Column  October 18, 2002, by Michael King
"...21, which stretches from the north San Antonio suburbs up and out through the Hill Country and then back into western Travis Co., also looks like a slam dunk for the GOP, at least at first glance. With 11-term incumbent Lamar Smith facing a neophyte Dem candidate, San Antonio schoolteacher John Courage, early handicapping had the Republicans welcoming Courage into the race -- one suggested a breathing opponent might rouse 25,000 additional GOP votes..."

"...Crush, by first-time writer-director John McKay, is the kind of movie that gives “chick flicks” a bad reputation. This gal-pal British import lacks the courage to follow through on its narrative implications, and plays like a wan romantic comedy that, alternately, might have been titled Two Near Weddings and a Couple of Funerals..."

Film Review  September 19, 1997, by Russell Smith
"...Superimposing these raw, primal emotions onto amber-hued scenes of bucolic splendor creates a satisfying tension that sustains interest even when the story veers uncomfortably close to primetime soap territory. Though not a completely successful film, A Thousand Acres is hard-hitting, original, and brimming with unwavering moral convictions and the courage to follow them to their troubling conclusions...."

"...(The Austin metro area is now split between five congressional districts.) Smith is a quiet, pleasant fellow who generally gets 100% ratings from hard-right organizations and is especially active (and reactionary) on immigration issues. His Dem opponent, teacher John Courage, is working hard, but very uphill, to build name recognition (it is a great name) with a campaign that is progressive on most issues: health care, Social Security, education, women's rights.Governor Perhaps you've heard of these guys..."
