    She calls her Dash America an “exhilarating political movement that focuses on unity, faith, family values, and feminism” ... “I believe we can and must return to Reagan’s Hollywood, a time when movies were pro-America, pro-freedom, and pro-family values,” Dash wrote. “We are going to make that happen by writing, producing, and distributing films that showcase what is great about America and show us how to achieve its potential.” ... Political elites have divided our country and seek to pit us against each other. Liberals sell us cheap fictional freedoms, while stripping away our true God-given freedoms and liberty,” Dash...

    Roland Emmerich has a problem. A very gay problem. You may know Emmerich as the guy that directs ridiculous summer blockbusters where all sorts of landmarks get all sorts of blowed up. Independency Day, The Day After Tomorrow, 2012. He specializes in wholesale destruction. You might even call it apocalypse-porn. What you might not know is the Emmerich himself is gay, a fact that’s only really been talked about for the last 10 years or so, and even then not so much. He’s made a few donations to gay film organizations, but apart from that the closest thing he’d ever...

    After weeks of indecision, ABC announced on May 12 that it would renew the Catholic-bashing sitcom "The Real O'Neals," which is loosely based on the childhood of zealously gay sex columnist Dan Savage. But then, Noah Galvin, the 22-year-old gay actor who plays the gay son, Kenny, gave an interview to New York Magazine's Vulture blog that was so rude that The Hollywood Reporter said ABC is considering its options, like reducing the number of episodes ordered for season 2. An executive producer who spent four years getting the series on the air was "begging the network not to take...

    FORT HUACHUCA — Even the stars were a little starstruck. It’s one thing to portray the military in Hollywood, as the cast of the blockbuster “Independence Day” did 20 years ago in a story that featured people of Earth banding together to topple alien invaders. Much of the cast has regrouped, with some new cast members, for “Independence Day: Resurgence,” the much anticipated sequel that hits theaters this Thursday. But to visit the troops on their turf and see what they do to defend the U.S. is quite another thing. Two stars from the new film, Jessie T. Usher and...

Last March, Supergirl EP Greg Berlanti revealed that he tried — and failed — to lasso Carter for a Season 1 guest stint, telling reporters he had a “perfect role” in mind for the TV icon, but they “couldn’t work out her schedule.” He called it the “biggest disappointment for me this entire season.” Berlanti later confirmed that the role was the “female president of the United States.”...

As its name implies, the AMCT is a group of Americans descended from Middle Eastern nations who have realized that Donald Trump is in fact...

Yet, when the series debuted, it was must-see TV in the Johnson household. We stopped what we were doing and watched it together and enthusiastically each night. We even cheered during the show, notable since we were often too darned middle class to cheer while watching football games on TV. The miniseries cleaned up during awards...

    Pitched battles between superheroes with huge fan bases? Check. Enough explosions to flatten several Manhattans? Check. Budgets over $250 million, not counting lavish marketing campaigns? Double-check. On paper, this season’s big superhero action films — “Captain America: Civil War” and “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” — from the rival studios Disney and Warner Bros. could almost be the same movie, so similar are their plots, action sequences and allusions to heavyweight themes of topical interest.

    Amber Heard is accusing her estranged husband Johnny Depp of domestic abuse in a court filing. Heard and her lawyer Samantha Spector appeared at the Superior Court of California County of Los Angeles on Friday where the 30-year-old actress filed for a domestic violence restraining order. Heard brought with her photos of her alleged injuries, including one that appears to show her with a large bruise around her eye. That photo was reportedly taken on Saturday after Heard alleges that Depp hit her in the face with his iPhone and then fled when police arrived on the scene according to...

    Corey Feldman has shared shocking details about the rampant sexual abuse he and other young actors were forced to endure during their years in Hollywood. In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, Feldman discusses how he was repeatedly molested by adult males in the industry, saying these men would pass many young stars 'back and forth to each other.' He also reveals that his closest friend, Corey Haim, was raped when he was just 11 by a producer, the start of a long cycle of sexual abuse that Feldman believes led to his friend's problems with drugs and alcohol later...

    What's going on behind that shield? Understand this about the media’s pursuit of agendas: It’s often not so much how they cover stories, as it is which stories they choose to cover at all. Let a bunch of people on social media start using the hashtag #IndictHillary, and I seriously doubt it gets any attention. A bunch of people on social media wanting something is not a story.

    In an in-depth interview with THR, the 'Goonies' and 'Lost Boys' star opens up about his late best friend Corey Haim's rape by a producer at age 11, the pre-teen parties where predators stalked and groomed their marks and the "dark side" of his close pal Michael Jackson: "The man is gone. Let him rest in peace." A recent interview with Elijah Wood has reignited the conversation on pedophilia in the entertainment business. The Lord of the Rings star later clarified first to The Hollywood Reporter and then on his personal Twitter account that his comments about "something major ......

    FELONIES ADMITTED ON TAPE On 4-10-2006 I had the opportunity to speak on the phone with legendary comic book icon Stan Lee. He again confirmed what is on the attached sworn deposition. HE GAVE NO MONEY TO HILLARY'S CAMPAIGN AND HER FOURTH AMENDED FEC REPORT WAS FALSE. In Sept 2007 I drove to the Federal Bldg in West Los Angeles and presented evidence to a field agent. No further action was taken against Hillary.

    Actor-comedian Alan Young, who played the amiable straight man to a talking horse in the 1960s sitcom “Mister Ed,” has died, a spokeswoman for the Motion Picture and Television Home said Friday. He was 96. The English-born, Canadian-educated Young died Thursday, according to Jaime Larkin, spokeswoman for the retirement community where Young had lived for four years. His children were with him when he died peacefully of natural causes, she said. Young was already a well-known radio and TV comedian, having starred in his own Emmy-winning variety show, when “Mister Ed” was being readied at comedian George Burns’ production company....

    Earlier today, SJWs on Twitter managed to get their demands for a gay Captain America to trend. Here's an article: [snip...] The thing about these "let's make this super hero gay" campaigns is that 99.99 percent of everyone calling for it doesn't actually read or watch Super Hero stuff anyway. We're talking about the most neurotic people on Earth who are literally offended by everything. These are the people I met at university who would randomly tell me that they wished their own parents would die. These people merely keep pushing and pushing their bizarre agenda to the point that...

    Captain America: Civil War is the 897th installment — or something like it — in the Marvel comic franchise. This time round, the superheroes take sides, with the marketing asking if you’re #TeamCap or #TeamIronMan but not if you’re #TeamNeither, as would be most useful in my case. I swear this is the last Marvel film I will see as I never get anything out of them and whatever I say only sets the fans against me, which is not what you want at my age.
