All women are natural born liars!

Thus spake Mr. Hogan :-)

And he said it with a straight face :-)
Like he really believed it :-)

Cheeky bugger! as they say 'up norf' in England.


I don't think I have done 'back to back' film reviews before, so this is a first for The Sanctuary.

I first saw the film 'Two mules for Sister Sara' when I was a child, so of course all the lessons a-plenty within it were lost on me. I loved the music - not sure what instrument it is that keeps recurring, especially in the scenes involving the mules, but it is certainly comedic, at least it was, to 10 year old me.

Then I saw it again recently, and I was amazed at how much 'Natural Law' troof' it holds.

I mean, Clint Eastwood ain't bad looking :-)
He's got that whole John Wayne-ish thing going on, which would make any lady happy :-)

And, as we all know by now, 'happy-ness is the troof', don'tcha know!

Pharrell Williams knows... and he is right!

Erm, getting sidetracked....

The ultimate 'tension' of a specific nature (mentioning no names) is to be had when two 'unavailable' people of different sexes are thrown together in a vacuum with no means of escape.
This is a script for
1) disaster
2) hilarity

We kind of get both in this film.

Here we have the ultimate MGHOW (bar Jesus Christ) versus the ultimate Alpha Widow.

Yes, a nun is the ultimate alpha widow :-)

In a good way.

Except, in this film (spoiler alert!!!) this nun is not exactly as she seems :-)

But for the first half of the film, at least, we are led to believe she is of the 'pure and driven snow' variety. Which makes Mr. Hogan's attempts to test her boundaries all the more hilarious.

But it's not his fault. Alcohol is the third party in this 'love' triangle :-)

Throughout this film, one gets the impression that poor old Mr. Hogan is being 'sent up', meaning that there is a conspiracy against him of sorts.
All engineered by the innocent-looking Sister Sara.

This in itself is a poignant point: I get the impression, looking around me, that modern men are indeed being 'sent up' by the not-so-funny joke that is feminism. And the more resourceful of them react with exactly the same kind of 'Red Pill-ness' that Mr. Hogan displays.

And what a fountain of Red Pill-ness Mr Hogan is! :-)
This guy is a walking Manosphere blog :-)

Like most actors whose on-screen personas mimic 'alphadom' very well (off the top of my head - Jack Nicholson, John Wayne being very good examples), Clint Eastwood's natural personality oozes confidence.

The slow (never rushed) movements, the thoughtful facial expression (usually minus a smile), the willingness to take on dangerous tasks, the ease with which he seems to execute said tasks, the even-toned voice, the logic of his words...
The list is indeed endless, but you get the picture...

I often wonder what's going through the casting director's mind when he/she picks these actors for these roles. I wonder if they already have a certain personality in mind, or are they stunned into selecting these guys when they show up at the audition? How does this process work? Any casting directors out there?

The film begins when Hogan happens upon what seems to be a rape scene about to unfold. Three drunken men are circling a semi-naked woman, taunting her.

Hogan intervenes, and ends up shooting all three men dead.

To his surprise, the female victim turns out to be a ..... nun.

At first he is simply shocked. They are afterall in the middle of a desert in Mexico.
What's a nun doing here of all places? he asks.

But Hogan doesn't get all 'white-knighty' on her. He is chivalrous but not supplicating, even with her 'nun' status. He protects her, but tells her off when she does something silly, like using their precious drinking water to bless the bodies of her dead assailants. He also refuses to do certain things for her, for example, burying the bodies of her assailants.

'Sister, I don't mind  shooting 'em for ya, but I'll be damned if I'm gonna sweat over 'em for ya'.

Sister Sara is determined to give the men a Christian burial. So she gets busy with the shovel that Hogan provides.

He teases her by suggesting that if she ever got tired of being a nun, there was always gravedigging in her future.
Hey, is it not a sin to neg a nun?

And when she accuses him of being 'as stubborn as her mule', his reply? 'Of course!'

Poor old Hogan can't seem to shake off Sister Sara. Each time he wants to go his own way (heh) something happens and she needs his help/protection.
See what I mean by my conspiration theory?

Hogan is attracted to her. But he is a little annoyed that she is married to God :-) And that she is as pretty as she is (distracting, you see).

Sister Sara seems to take his lust in her stride. She understands his lustful nature. She will pray for his soul.
She humours him by sharing some of her own struggles against temptation. Hogan is unimpressed. She must be lying about her chastity. Hence the title of this post.


Some of his funniest quotes listed here:

Can nuns cook?

Everybody's got the right to be a sucker once.

Oh that was no miracle, just an accident, life is full of 'em (in response to her thanking him for coming just in time to save her from her assailants).

Oh I don't know, never spent the night with one before (in response to 'you think nuns don't laugh?')

I ride from sun-up to sun-down. You either keep up or you don't.

What for? (in response to the question: 'don't you want a woman of your own?')

And what about you Ma'am? Haven't you wanted to be a whole woman, have a man make love to you, have children?

What do you do about those feelings that God gave every woman, including you?

In your case, Sister, just how much praying does that take? (in response to her assertion that when she gets 'those feelings', she prays, and they pass).

All the women I ever met were natural born liars, but I never knew about nuns till now.

I'll say one thing, Sister. I sure would have liked to have met up with you before you took to them clothes and them vows (looking her up and down in a salacious manner).

Look I told you not to 'brother' me!

Alright, it's a small shrine, let's make it a small prayer.

Hogan and Sister Sara embark on a mission together.
At the end of the mission he discovers something about her that surprised even him :-)

To say anymore about this film would be to spoil it for you.

Watch it, you would enjoy it, I am sure!

One of my favorite films!

Best lines:
"A man on his own has got to learn to take care of himself."
"It's a great life. Women when I want 'em, and none with the name of Hogan." (in response to Sara's (atypical female) comment, "It must be a lonely life".)

Hogan should learn the art of masturbation.

That way no woman can control him.

You see ST, I was right after all! Relationships are inherently bad.
It's all lies, manipulations and something about that love thingy... ;-)

I saw this movie long time ago...

@ Take The Red Pill,

"Best lines:
"A man on his own has got to learn to take care of himself."
"It's a great life. Women when I want 'em, and none with the name of Hogan." (in response to Sara's (atypical female) comment, "It must be a lonely life".)"

Absolutely. What I really liked about 'Sister Sara' is that she had compassion for (what she presumed to be a lonely life for) Hogan. She also dealt with his lust for her in a very mature manner, accepting that it was natural, and not something to beat him around the head with.

This is admirable, and is something that younger women particularly don't know how to do, I think. The few who do are seen by men as 'gracious', which is an apt description! But it is most definitely an 'older woman's' art...

Having a certain compassion for men is a good start for women to understand how things have got to where they are in the SMP.

For all of the above reasons, this film is also one of my favourite films :-)

Hogan, by the way was at risk of taking on Sister Sara (and making her a 'Hogan') precisely because of her great maturity. Of course that would require a 'divorce' from God, lol...or in her case, merely an annulment...
(Sorry for my dark Catholic humour :-).


"Hogan should learn the art of masturbation.

That way no woman can control him."

I am sure Hogan has things under control in this regard. I don't get the impression that ANY woman could control Hogan, even if she were his wife. I think it is still possible for a man to be getting 'favours' from a woman and for him to still remain dominant over her. This is the ideal situation, in fact. That this is no longer the case in most male-female relationships is to be pitied, not revelled in, or revered.
I cannot tell a man what to do, I can only say what as a woman, I would respond favourably to (which *indrectly* tells a man what to do, I guess, lol) but do permit me to say this much: no man need be relegated to the depths of what you prescribe, LFOD. It is possible to find a woman whose looks and personality a man likes, and it is up to that man to 'make her his', theoretically speaking. The practicalities are daunting, yes, but it is surely possible for any given individual man. Of course, if a man truly likes masturbating, then of course, he can go ahead, no problem. But I suspect most men don't want this forever...
But given I am not a man, I cannot be sure...


"You see ST, I was right after all!"

Metak, you are ALWAYS right :-)

IntJ Broadbent,

Welcome to The Sanctuary!

Sorry you had problems posting. Glad to see you won in the end :-)

Yes, I DO love the old movies. They are all so RedPill :-)

This movie ws on BBC many years ago when I was young, so I watched it with my parents. What a surprise for me when it came on TV again when I was on a short visit to London, and then of course I saw it with 'different eyes', ie with adult eyes.
It was a real revelation to me to see how the ideal man (Hogan) and the ideal woman (Sister Sara) interact. One doesn't observe these sorts of graceful encounters (easily) anymore in today's SMP, so it was a pleasure to witness it, if only in a movie.
The older movies are so much richer in this regard than today's Hollywood 'blockbusters'. I can't even remember the last time I went to the cinema...

Gidday ST,

This site was dormant for so long, I thought it was croaking!

Anyway, Down Under we know the difference between a hard men and a pretend one. We're used to real-life hard men, such as the late Barry Crump:

Gidday Glissando,

Hahahahaha, not dormant, just hibernating :-)
It's winter here in the Northern Hemisphere afterall :-)

I thought long and hard as to whether to remove your comment and the link therein or not...

I have decided to leave it be, but here are my thoughts on your 'boycott American women' site.

I must admit I don't endorse your site. Whilst I understand that most American women and indeed most Western women are not what thy should be, the term 'American women' is composed of a heterogenous bunch of people. In this group are the unsuitables: the sluts, the frivorcees, the cold fish, the feminists, the Strong and Independent know them well, as indeed I do. But let's not EVER forget that in this group are also the women who are chaste and decent, are loving wives, girlfriends and mothers, do their best to live up to their duties and responsibilities, and, like you, are doing their best to live the best life they can. To generalise as you have done, by lumping everyone together in one big group according to nationality is not right, so I don't endorse it.

Back when in my formative years I started hearing 'all men are pigs', I chose not to believe it, because I could figure out for myself that this could not be statistically true.

In the same vein I won't endorse the notion that 'American women' as a group are to be boycotted.

Whilst I am happy (like you) to throw the sluts and the hos under the bus, I won't risk even ONE good woman getting the same treatment. Much the same as I won't hear of even ONE good man being punished simply because other men are bad.

I leave your comment and the link in place so that others can see to what I refer. But please do not take this to mean that I endorse your site.
I don't.

This is my humble opinion on the matter. Others may or may not disagree with me.
