    In recent days, a bunch of entertainment industry denizens gathered together behind a phalanx of armed guards at Justin Timberlake’s mansion to sip chardonnay and celebrate Hillary Clinton’s commitment to the poor and gun control. She came out of witness protection long enough to pocket some cash before returning to her previously scheduled indifference to the people flooded out in Louisiana. In Martha’s Vineyard, Barack Obama donned his mom shorts to chip some balls with that tiresome guy from Curb Your Enthusiasm before petulantly visiting the waterlogged South. And noted disaster logistics specialist Samuel L. Jackson smirked over a photo...

    Birth of a Nation director Nate Parker was accused by a prosecutor of using his successful rape defense to characterize his 18-year-old alleged victim as a 'drunk, a liar and a slut'. The prosecuting attorney at the rape trial launched a furious attack in his closing speech on the defense lodged by Parker, who had been accused of raping her with his friend in their college dorm. The trial in 2001 had heard a racially-charged defense, which included how Parker accused a policeman of being motivated by racism to pursue the case against him and his roommate, Jean Celestin, who...

    Leonardo DiCaprio has backed out of a pricey fundraiser lunch for Hillary Clinton that the actor had been scheduled to host at his Los Angeles home this week. Pop star Justin Timberlake and his wife Jessica Biel will instead host the event at their home. .......snip......... But the timing of DiCaprio’s cancellation comes as the actor’s environmental-focused charitable organization, the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation, was linked to a $3 billion Malaysian embezzlement scheme in news reports last week. The foundation — which focuses on climate change initiatives and hosts a glitzy annual party for hundreds of A-list celebrities and dignitaries —...

    This is for any James Bond fan. Ian Fleming's films exposed us to the Globalist control freaks (like George Soros) as "Spectre" in the James Bond series long before most of us really understood it.  Anyway Ken Adam did an outstanding job showing us the criminal Gloablist elite in their armored redoubts and deep underground military bunkers.  This 3 minute video shows his movie sets from Goldfinger to Moonraker.  Enjoy!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1jcKdVvQVJs

    During a weekend with three major new releases, holdovers “Suicide Squad,” from Warner Bros., and “Sausage Party,” from Sony, maintained their top spots at the box office. This means the big-budget reimagining of “Ben-Hur,” from Paramount Pictures and MGM, is one of the biggest flops of the summer. The third version of Lew Wallace’s 19th century novel “Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ” took in an estimated $11.4 million in the U.S and Canada, which was only good enough for fifth place. It met analyst projections of $10 million to $15 million, though the studio was aiming for an opening...

    Ben-Hur Official Trailer #1 (2016) - Morgan Freeman, Jack Huston Movie HD There’s a reason why the most classic films rarely get revisited. Paul Feig’s Ghostbusters reboot was probably doomed from the start, given the fact that most of the original film’s fans from its 1984 release are still around, even without the ill-advised politicization that took place after the mediocre trailers hit YouTube. I saw the new Ghostbusters a few weeks ago; it was not as bad as some say or as good as its defenders claim. It was a mediocrity, and an expensive one at that.Even more so...

    What was meant as a joke about Usain Bolt and Ellen DeGeneres swiftly went awry on Twitter. On Monday, the daytime talk show host’s official Twitter account tweeted a doctored image of Ellen riding the back of the gold medalist. The photo is the now famous one of him smiling as he heads to winning the men’s 100m race at the Olympics in Rio. The tweet’s caption from Ellen reads “This is how I’m running errands from now on.” Some on Twitter found the image less than golden, with cries of racism and insensitivity in joking about a white woman...

Trump, a billionaire businessman seeking his first public office, has courted controversy with a string of inflammatory statements about his main opponent Hillary Clinton, guns, Mexicans, Muslims and war veterans, among others. De Niro made the comments to a Sarajevo audience as he presented a digital version of Martin Scorsese's film "Taxi Driver", in which he starred, to mark its 40th anniversary.

    To boldly go . . . back to 1995! Wednesday at a Television Critics Association panel in Beverly Hills, Calif., Bryan Fuller, executive producer of “Star Trek: Discovery” (premiering in January on CBS, then airing on CBS All Access), revealed that a woman will be the new show’s main character. But this isn’t the typical self-righteous Hollywood back-slappery that launched a thousand Medium.com essays. Nor is it the Girl Power! casting of summer’s “Ghostbusters” flop, nor the newly announced all-female “Ocean’s Eight” caper. “Star Trek” has always done diversity the right way.

    Government officials make phony-baloney claims that their public-private “investments” will pay for themselves. But study after study, on both the progressive left and the free-market right, shows that the economy-stimulating effect of public subsidies for private corporate preferences (movies, sports stadiums, malls, hotels, you name it) is negligible. Loan guarantees. Refundable tax credits and rebates. Tax-increment financing. Tax-exempt bonds. All these enticements dangled by thirsty bureaucrats before wealthy developers, sports team owners and Hollywood moguls who don’t need them amount to blatant redistributions of wealth. The independent California Legislative Analyst’s Office found that for every dollar California spent on the...

So when CBS entertainment president Glenn Geller took the stage at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Wednesday morning, it wasn’t surprising that the very first question – and the second, third and fourth – was about the network’s commitment to diversity. “What message does it send,” a reporter asked pointed, “that the leads of your shows in the fall are all heterosexual white men?”“I’m really glad this question came up first because we’re very mindful at CBS about the importance of diversity...

    COLORADO SPRINGS -- My adopted hometown will soon be the base of operations for a new Netflix movie starring aging elitist hippies Robert Redford (estimated net worth: $170 million) and Jane Fonda (estimated net worth: $120 million). A state economic development commission unanimously voted last week to fork over $1.5 million in taxpayer-funded "incentives" for the liberal duo's romantic flick, arguing that it will generate "great publicity." But given the fierce opposition so many men and women in uniform in this proud military community have to Hanoi Jane Fonda, I'll bet many of my friends and neighbors wish they could...

During an interview for his new movie Suicide Squad, Smith said that “for a man to be able to publicly refer to a woman as a fat pig, that makes me teary....

    PHILADELPHIA — Leaked emails show the Democratic National Committee scrambled this spring to conceal the details of a joint fundraising arrangement with Hillary Clinton that funneled money through state Democratic parties. During the three-month period when the DNC was working to spin the situation, state parties kept less than one half of one percent of the $82 million raised through the arrangement — validating concerns raised by campaign finance watchdogs, state party allies and Bernie Sanders supporters. The arrangement, called the Hillary Victory Fund, allowed the Clinton campaign to seek contributions of hundreds of thousands of dollars to attend extravagant...

Beginning with an episode in the ‘90s featuring President Hillary Clinton, audiences have been treated to Hillary-inspired female presidents and politicians, fictional...

Classically trained, Ms. Nixon was throughout the 1950s and ’60s the unseen — and usually uncredited — singing voice of the stars in a spate of celebrated Hollywood films. She dubbed Deborah Kerr in “The King and I,” Natalie Wood in “West Side Story” and Audrey Hepburn in “My Fair Lady,” among many others.
