  • ‘The Last Jedi’ Director Mocks Angry Fans Wanting to Remake It: ‘Please Actually Happen’

    Angry “Star Wars” fans have been up in arms over “The Last Jedi” since it released in December, so much so that one group claims it’s going to remake it. A website called “RemakeTheLastJedi.com” and corresponding Twitter account popped up in June, purporting to be created by a group of producers who mean to make a new version of “Episode VIII.” Of course, people can pledge money on that website. Supposedly it has raised more than $22 million as of this writing — but claims that the cost of actually making the film will be covered by the unnamed producers...
  • ‘Incredibles 2’ Is Huge Hit But Now Comes With A Warning

    People who are light-sensitive or epileptic began warning other film-goers on social media. There is a strobe-light sequence in the picture that apparently caused some people to become nauseous. Disney/Pixar believe the problem was serious enough to ask theaters to start posting signs warning about the sequence People tweeted that the strobe effects the villain uses left them nauseous or worse — gave them a seizure “So as a result, I walked out of the theater with a migraine,” said blogger Veronica Lewis. That’s why Lewis took to twitter in a thread that’s now gone viral asking Disney & Pixar...
  • Review: John Travolta’s “Gotti” Movie Is the $9.99 All You Can Eat Buffet Version of “Goodfellas”

    “Gotti” starring John Travolta is just as bad as you might imagine, and then some. I can’t say I blame director Kevin Connolly, who took over from a long series of unfortunate incidents that led to this production. Connolly was hamstrung by Travolta, by a really grossly bad script, and a series of producers some of whom had criminal records. Last night’s premiere of “Gotti” was entertaining more for the celebrities who showed up– Regis and Joy Philbin, Susan Lucci and husband Helmut Huber, former police commissioner Ray Kelly and his wife Veronica, and their broadcaster son Greg among them....
  • Toxic Fandom Is Killing 'Star Wars'

    Racist harassment of 'Last Jedi' star Kelly Marie Tran and the 'Solo' backlash: Lucasfilm’s problem isn’t the movies, it’s trolls who want only the nostalgia of their youth, like "old Luke Skywalker hiding on an island from everything new," writes columnist Marc Bernardin. Fandom has always been an us versus them proposition. In the early days, it was because you loved something that the world at large found silly, be it comic books or Doctor Who. It was you and those who felt like you, against everyone else. Star Wars redefined fandom because it built a bigger tent than had...

    Michael Myers is back and still scary as ever in the new Halloween movie. The highly anticipated trailer from the infamous 1970s horror flick dropped Friday, and even though Mike's 60-years-old this time around, he's ready to kill again. After much anticipation, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have revealed the first trailer for Halloween and it may easily give you nightmares for weeks.
  • New AMC Series Delivers Murdering Feminists For #MeToo Movement

    Those who were begging for another insufferably woke feminist series after The Handmaid’s Tale are in luck. AMC’s new show Dietland is poised to become the newest symbol of #MeToo movement. This program, however, aims to take things to a whole new level with the next natural step in stopping possible rapists: murder. Based on the 2015 novel of the same name by Sarai Walker, the June 4 two-part premiere “Pilot” and “Tender Belly” follows obese ghostwriter Plum Kettle (Joy Nash) as she attempts to lose weight while being employed by a fashion magazine. Over the course of two episodes,...
  • Box Office: ‘Solo’ Is Officially a Disaster as Media Cover Up Why

    With no serious competition opening at the box office, Solo has officially collapsed with a catastrophic -68 percent drop in its second weekend. After grossing a measly (we are talking about a Star Wars movie here) $82 million in its debut weekend, Solo bottomed out in week two with just $28 million. How bad is that? In its second weekend, The Force Awakens was grossing $50 million A DAY. The Last Jedi grossed $70 million. Rogue One grossed $55 million. In worse news, Solo is by far the most expensive Star Wars movie produced yet, with a reported price tag...

    Before we go any further, let’s dispel with The Nonsense. Solo is not collapsing at this weekend’s domestic and international box office over some exotic disease known as Star Wars Fatigue. The idea that the American public is tired of Star Wars because The Last Jedi was released only five months ago, is a heaping-helping of anti-science rubbish.

    Hulu's drama series Handmaid's Tale has garnered critical acclaim and has won dozens of awards including Best Drama Series at the Emmys and Golden Globes. According to liberals, the show is supposed to reflect "Trump's America." With the novel having been covered completely in season 1, the writers have turned "Gilead" into the dystopian nightmare that the left claims Trump and Pence want for our country in season 2. One character in particular has been written as a victim of homophobia, with every imaginable tragedy happening to her. The character Emily (played by Gilmore Girls' Alexis Bledel) has had the...

    As I wrote a few days ago, I had minimal expectations of Chappaquiddick The Movie, which opened last week despite the best efforts of the Kennedy family and their various retainers and enablers. I have always been revolted by the fact that Ted, after killing Mary Jo Kopechne, did not have the decency to do a John Profumo and retire from public life for the rest of his days - and I was even more revolted by the way Massachusetts voters did not have the decency to impose that choice upon him... That combination of outsiders and neophytes may be...
  • Okay, The Incredibles 2 May Be The Best Superhero Movie Of The Year

    The Incredibles may be a squad of superheroes, but the highly-anticipated (and long-awaited) sequel to the 2004 animated movie is celebrating one specific heroine. Elastigirl is running things this time around, and it's just one of many reasons to get hyped for this sure-to-be-epic superhero flick. The latest trailer for The Incredibles 2 shows the pitfalls of having a family with incredible powers — especially when only one of them is asked to save the world. The drama in the sequel comes about when mom Helen Parr, a.k.a. Elastigirl, is tasked with bringing superheroes back into the forefront of...

    What is the first thing you think of when you think of an alien movie? Does Sigourney Weaver's bald head pop into your mind as you picture her battling extraterrestrials in Alien 3? Or do you think of something unconventional, like Cloverfield or District 9? The alien genre is one that has certainly evolved over the years as special effects and computer-generated images have improved far beyond anyone's wildest dreams. But the fact of the matter is that for an alien movie to be good (actually, for any movie to be good), it has to tell a really good story,...

    <p>A challenge of this populist age is separating authentic outsiders with usefully unorthodox political perspectives from rank kooks looking to exploit a moment of open-mindedness.</p> <p>Roseanne Barr provides a good study.</p> <p>The popular reboot of her blue-collar sitcom after a two-decade slumber has been widely heralded as a populist victory by much of the pro-Trump Right, given the decision to cast Roseanne’s character as a Trump voter. That Roseanne the woman is herself a Trump supporter only advances the notion that the show is a populist win, and many critics and viewers have offered the MAGA factor as the sole variable explaining the program’s popularity. “Look at her ratings!” cried the gleeful president himself after the show’s debut.</p>

    Hollywood in Toto ^ | 6 Apr 2018 | Christian Toto
    This devastating time capsule can't help but stain the Kennedy legacy. There’s a good chance the upcoming biopic of former Vice President Dick Cheney won’t be fair or balanced. The film’s writer/director, Adam McKay, is an ardent leftist who injects his politics into his work. McKay even flirted with a “comedy” about a dementia-addled President Ronald Reagan. Har har. The minds behind “Chappaquiddick” ditch the partisan approach like an inconvenient campaign promise. Their tale sticks to what we already know about the car accident that killed both Mary Jo Kopechne and Sen. Ted Kennedy’s presidential dreams. That’s more than enough.

    "Chappaquiddick" did an estimated $1.9 million in ticket sales in 1,560 USA theaters. I can't find how much the movie cost, but if it's more than $20 million, it will have a very hard time breaking even.

  • NY Times Op-Ed: Chappaquiddick Film Is ‘Character Assassination’ of Ted Kennedy

    In a New York Times op-ed published Friday, a liberal journalist and film critic complained the new film Chappaquiddick was a "character assassination" of its central character, Democratic Senator Ted Kennedy. "How ‘Chappaquiddick’ Distorts a Tragedy" wrote Neal Gabler, who is working on a biography of Kennedy. Gabler complained the film, released in theaters Friday, has been "heavily promoted by conservative media outlets, and reviewers across the political spectrum have praised what they deem its damning but factual approach. Damning it is; factual it is not." There actually was no "cover-up" of Kennedy's car accident that led to the death...
  • Ted Kennedy: Lion or Jackal?

    On April 6, Chappaquiddick, a movie detailing the events involving Senator Ted Kennedy on Martha's Vineyard in July 1969, will be released. That incident demonstrated the depths to which the Kennedys were willing to go to salvage the political career of the last of the Kennedy sons. In subsequent years, the actions of Ted Kennedy that night were forgiven by the Democrats, as were subsequent actions as noted below. The movie is based on a book, Senatorial Privilege: The Chappaquiddick Coverup, by Leo J. Damore, who committed suicide in 1995. Well, that is the official version, at least. The Kennedy...

    One measure of how old we're getting is realizing how many voters today have no familiarity with the Chappaquiddick scandal. In July of 1969, then-Sen. Ted Kennedy drove off a bridge into a pond with a young woman in the passenger seat and left the scene of the accident alone. Kennedy waited 10 hours to report it, and Mary Jo Kopechne died. This is one compelling reason why many older voters thought liberals sounded preposterous when they suggested Donald Trump's presidential campaign should be canceled over the "Access Hollywood" tape of him boasting of grabbing women in the crotch. Kennedy...
