  • Hollywood producer to Maxine Waters: Time for you to go

    Fact check: Absolutely true, at least to many people outside of California’s 43rd Congressional district. Maxine Waters has been in the House for twenty-six years as one of its most extreme progressives, and has spent much of the past year agitating for Donald Trump’s impeachment. On the other hand, the 78-year-old Waters has gotten a surprising amount of buzz on the Left as a potential 2020 presidential candidate, at least according to The Hill: Waters is emerging as the president’s harshest congressional critic, enraging Trump’s conservative supporters and electrifying the Democrats’ liberal base, some of whom are pushing –– only...

    The much-anticipated movie Dunkirk opens this weekend in theaters. USA Today contributor and Social Justice Warrior Brian Truitt blasted the movie this week for not including women and actors of color in the Dunkirk battle story! Thats how insane the left has become! The Daily Wire reported: USA Todays Brian Truitt describes himself as a shameless geek, but oddly enough omits the fact that he is also just as shamelessly ignorant when it comes to the signaling of his own CorrectThink virtue. In his review of Dunkirk, director Christopher Nolans big-budget look (opening this weekend) at an actual historical...

    It wasn't all acting. The incredibly loud-mouthed, obnoxious character of Erlich Bachman on HBO's comedy hit, Silicon Valley,seems to be matched in these characteristics by the actor who portrayed him, T.J. Miller. Miller last made the news in a big way when he was arrested last December for hitting his Uber driver for the high crime of not sharing his Trump Derangement Syndrome.The latest news about Miller is the announcement that he has left Silicon Valleyfor good. Miller actually claimed in a July 20 interview with Claire Fallon of the HuffPost (formerly Huffington Post) that President Donald Trump caused him...

    Never has so much ignorance been rendered on such a great feat by so few. Such is the historical record of reviewers of the new movie, "Dunkirk." First, a brief historical primer. Dunkirk was the site of the British Army's evacuation from northern France in May-June 1940. The evacuation was made necessary after the British Army in France, deployed as the British Expeditionary Force, was encircled by a rapidly advancing German army. Thanks to the immense courage of rearguard forces, RAF pilots, and British civilians (who lent their boats to the effort), 200,000 British soldiers and 140,000 French, Belgian and...

    A USA Today review of Dunkirk is under increased scrutiny from industry peers for warning viewers that it lacks women and minorities. Social media ridicule followed the publishing of writer Brian Truitts reaction to director Christopher Nolans latest film, a World War II tale about Allied soldiers attempting to survive while pinned down by German adversaries. The columnist gave the film a glowing review while saying its lack of diversity may rub some the wrong way.

    With her Hulu breakout scoring 13 Emmy noms, including best actress, television's reigning (and surprisingly foul-mouthed) star opens up about Season 2 and her political awakening: "I'm a staunch believer in women's rights. I don't really give a s about anybody who isn't." The morning of July 13 started like any other, with Elisabeth Moss trying to eke out a little more time in bed. She is not, by all accounts, an early riser, and this sticky Thursday was no different, save for the locale, South Florida, where she was enjoying a rare few days off. Then came the midday...

    The guys behind HBO's Game of Thrones, David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, have a new project in the works called Confederate. The Civil War project is set up at HBO and they will start work on it as soon as they are done with Game of Thrones. Here's the description of the series: Confederate chronicles the events leading to the Third American Civil War. The series takes place in an alternate timeline, where the southern states have successfully seceded from the Union, giving rise to a nation in which slavery remains legal and has evolved into a modern institution.

    Tony Kushner, the award-winning playwright and screenwriter best known for the AIDS-era epic Angels in America, is writing a new play about Donald Trump. It feels very soon, Kushner told The Daily Beast in an interview posted Wednesday, adding that he began work on the project before the 45th president took the Oval Office. Hes the kind of person, as a writer, I tend to avoid as I think he is borderline psychotic, said Kushner, who earned Oscar nominations for his fact-based screenplays for Steven Spielbergs Munich and Lincoln.

    Legendary filmmaker George A. Romero, father of the modern movie zombie and creator of the groundbreaking Night of the Living Dead franchise, has died at 77, his family said. Romero died Sunday in his sleep following a brief but aggressive battle with lung cancer, according to a statement to The Times provided by his longtime producing partner, Peter Grunwald. Romero died while listening to the score of one his favorite films, 1952s The Quiet Man, with his wife, Suzanne Desrocher Romero, and daughter, Tina Romero, at his side, the family said. Romero jump-started the zombie genre as the co-writer (with...

    The arrests stemmed from a scuffle among competing demonstrators outside the busy Hollywood and Highland shopping complex, police said. An anti-Trump protester who received a minor laceration during the skirmish was given medical aid from a rival demonstrator. Despite a lot of shouting and name calling, the demonstrations remained mostly peaceful and without incident. ... The anti-Trump protest, one of several taking place around the country Saturday, is being organized by RefuseFascism. Dozens of people were expected to participate in the rally, according to organizers. The Trump/Pence Regime daily escalates its fascist attacks on immigrants and Muslims, on healthcare and...

    While the nation's political elites obsess over daily controversies of official Washington, a far more significant development is taking place on television screens across America. After years of steady growth, the number of subscribers to streaming video services like Netflix has topped the number of cable subscribers. ComScore reports that 51 million households now receive their television programming through what the industry calls Over-The-Top television. They watch an average of 49 hours of streaming content per month. About a third of these households have dropped cable and satellite programming completely. Looking ahead, the streaming services are expected to continue growing...

    George Lopez has taken a shot at President Donald Trumps immigration policies. The comedian posted a message to his Instagram on Saturday that was specifically aimed at the presidents administration. Lopez made it clear he didnt support Trumps handling of immigration, which led to a 38 percent increase in deportation arrests in the presidents first 100 days. In that time, the arrests of undocumented immigrants without criminal histories doubled. The Trump administration is deporting Latinos to make the streets safer ... you wanna make the streets safer, deport the police! Lopezs photo said.....

    Each month brings a fresh headline containing Hollywood's favourite new buzzphrase, "franchise fatigue." As big-budget sequels from The Mummy to Transformers: The Last Knight stutter to a halt, the consensus reached by news coverage suggests a collective, audible yawn from audiences, as they grow weary and tired of recycled and repackaged films. But is franchise fatigue really a pressing issue for movie studios to address, or is it nothing more than a buzzphrase, a product of anti-franchise bias? The full story of #boxoffice trends is complex and impossible to define in two words alone (lucky for you, this article has...

    From actor Chris Evans (Captain America) to director Joss Whedon, the Marvel Comics franchise is committing harikari in the most unbecoming of ways: through unapologetic, partisan bashing of a democratically elected president they cant stand. Evans has expressed deep contempt for what he considers to be in the ignorant masses of Americans that voted Donald Trump into the White House. These are, however, the very masses that make up the core viewership of Marvels superhero movies. People were just so desperate to hear someone say that someone is to blame, Evans said in a recent interview with Esquire magazine. They...
