  • SUPERMAN VERSUS THE KU KLUX KLAN WILL BE ADAPTED AS A MOVIE

    SUPERMAN VERSUS THE KU KLUX KLAN WILL BE ADAPTED AS A MOVIE POSTED BY BLAIR MARNELL ON APRIL 29, 2017   Even among Superman fans, it’s a little known fact that the expression about the Man of Steel’s “never-ending battle for truth and justice” originated in The Adventures of Superman radio program, which also established Clark Kent’s alter ego as a “champion of equal rights, valiant, [and a] courageous fighter against the forces of hate and prejudice.” Superman lived up to that description on the show, and so did the people behind-the-scenes. Now, their story will be told on the big screen in an adaptation of Rick...
  • Film Review: "Awake: A Dream From Standing Rock," is Full Scaremongering Claims and No Evidence

    AWAKE, a Dream from Standing Rock is a new documentary from controversial filmmaker Josh Fox. And I'm using the truthful definition of controversial filmmakerwhich apparently means that the ends justify the means and lies and omissions are acceptable as long as it helps promote the cause. I first came across Josh Fox's controversial (read: unethical) style of filmmaking in Gasland, the film that started the international anti-fracking movement. In Gasland, Fox claimed fracking led to people being able to light their water on fire. He promoted the shocking scene of a flaming household faucet and frightened millions in the process....
  • Harvey Weinstein complains of R rating for trans teen film(Caution, vid clip)

    Harvey Weinstein knows he can be temperamental, and he knows he's not above a good publicity stunt, but he said Thursday his complaints over an R rating for his company's upcoming trans teen family story "3 Generations" are worth the effort on behalf of prospective young trans viewers. Starring Elle Fanning as a girl who wants to transition, the Motion Picture Association of America assigned the restrictive R based on strong language, including some sexual references. The film, which opens with a limited release in Los Angeles and New York on May 5, also stars Naomi Watts and Susan Sarandon.
  • WHY EVERYONE MUST SEE THE ARMENIAN GENOCIDE MOVIE THE PROMISE

    Even today, Turkey does not allow dead Armenians to rest in peace. What is the most at is the most horrible crime against humanity in history? To Henry Morgenthau Sr., who served as the US ambassador to the Ottoman Empire between 1913 and 1916, it was the Armenian genocide. Morgenthau wrote in 1919: I am confident that the whole history of the human race contains no such horrible episode as this. The great massacres and persecutions of the past seem almost insignificant when compared to the sufferings of the Armenian race in 1915. Up to 1.5 million Armenians were wiped...
  • Among Steve Bannons filmmaking oeuvre, two documentaries sought a public TV audience

    Even as President Trump seeks to end all federal funding to CPB, one of his most infamous aides has firsthand knowledge of the opportunities public media presents to independent filmmakers. White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, the former Breitbart News executive chair and a ringmaster of the white nationalist alt-right movement, previously led a very different some might say alternative career in the film industry. And two of the films he executive-produced have associations with PBS and CPB. Rickover: The Birth of Nuclear Power, a documentary about the Navy officer who oversaw development of the worlds first nuclear-powered...
  • Film Review: The Case for Christ

    Variety.com ^ | 4/6/17 | Joe Leydon
    An intriguing faith-based detective story in which an investigative reporter becomes a true believer. Although it sporadically errs on the side of sentimentality and simplification, The Case for Christ sustains interest, and even generates mild suspense, while offering a faith-based spin on the template of an investigative-journalism drama. Director Jon Gunn and screenwriter Brian Bird have shrewdly reconstituted Lee Strobels best-selling book about his road-to-Damascus transition from outspoken atheist to devout Christian as a kind of theological detective story. Of course, theres never any real doubt as to how the story will be resolved.

    The intense French thriller follows a young girl who gets an all-consuming appetite for human flesh. Moviegoers nauseated by French director's Julia Ducournau's cannibal-infused Raw don't need to worry about throwing up in their popcorn bags at least at the Nuart Theatre in Los Angeles.

    You can't do anything these days without getting the progressives all bent out of shape. You can't even make a movie about an Amazonian warrior princess who can hold her own with the likes of Superman and Batman without wounding the feelings of a modern feminist, because something about that warrior princess will still not be "progressive" enough. For example: Wonder Woman has shaved her armpits, and THAT IS NOT OK: Twitter exploded at the revelation, claiming women of the fictional matriarchy Themyscira would probably not shave their armpits. Some speculated that Gadots armpits were photoshopped to show a sheen,...

    Dean Israelite, director of the highly-anticipated sci-fi action flick Power Rangers, says the kid-friendly film features a short, but pivotal scene that reveals the Yellow Power Ranger is lesbian. Audiences will see Trini (Becky G.), the Yellow Power Ranger, stressed over issues concerning her romantic relationship. Trinis woes are assumed to be boyfriend problems, but are in fact revealed to be girlfriend problems. For Trini, really shes questioning a lot about who she is, Israelite told The Hollywood Reporter. She hasnt fully figured it out yet. I think whats great about that scene and what that scene propels for the...

The countrys two main cinema chains said the movie, due to begin screening Thursday, has been postponed indefinitely. No reason was given.

    With a new movie about King Kong coming out, a whole segment on NPR was devoted to proving that the fictional King Kong monster is actually a commentary on black people. The show interviewed Robin Means Coleman, a professor of Afro-American studies at the University of Michigan who specializes in studying King Kong. Yes, you read that right: a professor of Afro-American studies whose specialty is ... King Kong. [Snip] This is ridiculous. Yes, in the past, some racists have compared blacks to monkeys. But that does not mean that all portrayals of monkeys are about black people. In...

    What The Shack gets right by Lita Cosner Published: 7 March 2017 (GMT+10) It would be easy to write a standard, outraged review of The Shack. They portray God the Father and God the Spirit in human form, as females! They put words in Gods mouth that He never said! They substitute correct doctrine for mushy platitudes that sound like they came from Oprah! All those things are true, and theyre all problems, and those problems have been very thoroughly laid out elsewhere in reviews of William Paul Youngs best-selling 2008 book of the same title, so go there and...

    ....Moonlight won the top prize at Sunday nights Oscars ceremonyafter some initial envelope confusion created a bizarre sceneand, despite the fact that the independent drama never made much of a splash at the box office. The movie, about a young, gay black man growing up in an impoverished Miami neighborhood, has only made a little more than $22.2 million in domestic movie ticket sales so far, according to Box Office Mojo. That made Moonlight the lowest-grossing Best Picture nominee at this years Academy Awardsand among the lowest ever for a Best Picture winnereven after generating months of Oscars buzz.

    In Disney movies, princesses have always met their prince charming. But, in a change of convention, one character in the new Beauty and the Beast film is set to have the studios first exclusively gay scene. In the film, starring Emma Watson, manservant LeFou will explore his sexuality after developing feelings for macho leading man Gaston.

    And now back to our regularly scheduled cultural suicide. According to The Telegraph, Disneys new live action Beauty and the Beast will star a manservant exploring his sexuality. Super. Apparently, Emma Watsons Beauty has gotten a feminist makeover, and the character of Le Fou has the hots for his boss Gaston. The Telegraph cites an interview director Bill Condon did with the gay magazine Attitude. LeFou is somebody who on one day wants to be Gaston and on another day wants to kiss Gaston, he said. And Josh [Gad, who plays LeFou] makes something really subtle and delicious out of...

    We know too well how many lies the American left has perpetrated on the world.  Christian readers here understand that Jesus Himself told us that lies are the primary weapons the enemy of our souls uses.  Yet guess how extravagantly the LGBTQ community has been lied to. So much so that in 2013, crusaders against reparative therapy (counseling for those who do not want same-sex romantic attractions) in New Jersey had as their star witness a troubled, precious person who, in front of the state Senate, recounted her time allegedly spent in an ex-gay camp that in reality (using the term loosely)...

    Talk about a stretch! Or, better, make that a streeeeeeetch. Vox has started a new type of movie review in which they take a film and try to correrelate it to current events. Since Vox, like the rest of the MSM, is absolutely obessed by President Trump, it is no big surprise that they will apply their TDS to the reviews starting with the current movie: "Dr. Strangelove." To read the review by Alissa Wilkinson you would think Stanley Kubrick's classic dark comedy should have been named "Dr. StrangeTrump or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love The Donald."...
