    Has Dave Eggers written a parable of our time, an eviscerating takedown of Silicon Valley and its privacy-invading technology companies? Or has he missed his target, producing a sanctimonious screed that fails to humanize its characters and understand its subject? Book critics are divided over the quality of Mr. Eggers’s highly anticipated novel “The Circle,” which went on sale Tuesday. But in Silicon Valley and beyond, the book’s theme promises to spark an even bigger debate over the 21st-century hyperconnected world that Mr. Eggers describes. Set in an “undefined future time,” Mr. Eggers’s novel tells the story of Mae Holland,...

    Hillary Clinton might be a little late to the Wonder Woman party, but she definitely made up for it at her special screening of the blockbuster film this weekend. On Sunday, the Alamo Drafthouse's Brooklyn location tweeted a photo of a smiling Bill and Hillary Clinton with some of the theater's employees, writing, "Honored to have hosted @HillaryClinton & @billclinton last night for a special screening of WONDER WOMAN!" The screening has been a long time coming: In a video message at the Women in Film Crystal + Lucy Awards in Los Angeles in June, Hillz expressed her desire to...

    ‘The Circle’: Tom Hanks Takes a Swing at Liberal Groupthink at Apple and Google Tom Hanks produced the movie The Circle that takes a look at the liberal groupthink of a large Silicon Valley technology company. In any major liberal organization, such as at Apple or Google, the liberal ideology becomes groupthink: Think like they do or be banished. The movie, The Circle, portrays Emma Watson as a new employee who is indoctrinated into the groupthink of a large fictitious company called The Circle. The company has similar appearances as a cross between Apple and Google. Tom Hanks plays the...

    Former Vice President Al Gore’s new film, “An Inconvenient Sequel”, came in a dismal 15th this weekend at U.S. theaters, according to Box Office Mojo. Gore’s defenders have been quick to blame Paramount Pictures for the dismal performance of Gore’s sequel. “Al Gore Gets Ripped Off Again,” screamed the headline of D.R. Tucker in Washington Monthly.View post “This was not supposed to happen,” Tucker wrote, adding, “he should have demanded a recount.” “Sadly, the box-office under-performance of An Inconvenient Sequel will be seized upon by climate-change deniers as ‘proof’ that Americans don’t really care about this issue,” Tucker wrote.

    Roman historian Titus Livius (Livy) would love the new World War II movie, Dunkirk, because Livy believed: “the study of history is the best medicine for a sick mind.”Livy was not the only prominent Roman thinker to value historical studies. Marcus Tullius Cicero—one of Rome’s finest orators—concurred: “To not know what happened before one was born is to live as a child.” And America’s founding father James Madison agreed with the Romans, warning: "A well-instructed people alone can be permanently a free people."Suffering from a mental illness; immature; or in danger of serfdom—is how these three renowned thinkers describe a...

  • SJWs Melt Down over Bruce Willis’ ‘Death Wish’ Trailer: ‘Alt-Right,’ ‘Racist,’ ‘Nakedly Fascist’

    Big Hollywood (Breitbart) ^ | August 3, 2017 | Daniel Nussbaum
    MGM Pictures released the first trailer for its remake of the 1974 vigilante classic Death Wish on Thursday, featuring Bruce Willis taking over the lead role — but some critics and commentators have already branded the unreleased film “racist,” “alt-right,” and “nakedly fascist” over the short clip’s content. Willis stars as Paul Kersey, a surgeon on a brutal quest for revenge after his wife is murdered and his daughter is raped (Charles Bronson’s Kersey was an architect in the original five-film series). The remake also trades out the original film’s gritty New York City environment for contemporary Chicago. The trailer...

    Atlas Distribution Company has set an Oct. 27 release date for faith-based drama “Let There Be Light” with conservative political commentator Sean Hannity executive producing, Variety has learned. The film is directed by and stars Kevin Sorbo, who starred in 2014’s faith-based hit “God’s Not Dead,” which grossed $60 million domestically. “Let There Be Light” is the story of an atheist who has a near-death experience that challenges his beliefs about love, God, and family. The film also features music stars Dionne Warwick and Travis Tritt.

    Confederate, as outlined in HBO's initial release, “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." But constructing an alt-timeline centered around the continuation of slavery for another 150 years requires a certain significant assumption, says writer Steven Barnes, whose 2002 novel Lion’s Blood imagines an alternate history in which Africa is the dominant colonizing civilization and slaves are of European descent.

    Period has become increasingly challenging at the box office, not to mention in recent times marquees have been inundated with World War II fare, particularly films starring Brad Pitt. But when director Christopher Nolan embraces the historical subject, it’s a different story, and Warner Bros is celebrating a win for its older-male-skewing Dunkirk this weekend with $50.5 million — a figure that not only beat tracking, but the total $40M stateside ticket sales of Pitt’s November WWII bomb Allied.

    The U.S. should NEVER put itself in that position. The Brits sent their civilian boaters to save them. Destroyers and most planes were left behind to 'save England.' Make sure the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is always filled. Get the hell out of the Middle East with no more immigrints from that region. The Brits should get out of the Falklands. They have bigger fish to fry. Maybe we should al store food like the Mormons. My history teacher, retired military, said Hitler should have bombed them all on the beach. Cost him the war.

    Around 30,000 French troops held back Nazi divisions near the city of Lille to protect their allies during the evacuation code-named Operation Dynamo. Renowned French film critic Jacques Mandelbaum called Nolan "witheringly impolite" and slammed the director's "deplorable indifference" towards his country's contribution to the epic evacuation. "Where in the film are the 120,000 French soldiers who were also evacuated from Dunkirk? Where are the 40,000 who sacrificed themselves to defend the city against a superior enemy in weaponry and numbers?" he asked in his review in French newspaper Le Monde.

    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! That’s how insane the left has become! The Daily Wire reported: USA Today’s 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 Nolan’s big-budget look (opening this weekend) at an actual historical...

    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 Truitt’s reaction to director Christopher Nolan’s 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.”

    Clinton Cash, is a feature documentary based on the Peter Schweizer book that the New York Times hailed as “The most anticipated and feared book of a presidential cycle.” Clinton Cash investigates how Bill and Hillary Clinton went from being “dead broke” after leaving the White House to amassing a net worth of over $150 million, with over $2 billion in donations to their foundation. This wealth was accumulated during Mrs. Clinton’s tenure as US Secretary of State through lucrative speaking fees and contracts paid for by foreign companies and Clinton Foundation donors. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7LYRUOd_QoM

    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 can’t 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 Marvel’s 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...
