    Editor's Note: This column contains spoilers and plot details for the upcoming movie The Giver. With his approval numbers sinking to 39 percent a week ago, according to the Gallup tracking poll, President Obama isn't alone in having a bad summer. So is Hollywood. Entertainment Weekly calls gross receipts for what should have been a blockbuster July 4-6 weekend "downright terrifying." Writes EW, "Not only were grosses down 45 percent from last year's holiday, according to Boxofficemojo.com, but it was Hollywood's worst July 4 weekend since 1999. (And that's not taking into account inflation. In fact, this was the worst...

    Its friends in the media would have us think that Dinesh D’ Souza’s latest cinematic work, America: Imagine a World Without Her, is worth seeing because of the effectiveness with which D’ Souza demolishes the standard leftist charges leveled against the United States. I come away from this film with a dramatically different response. While D’ Souza is to be commended for establishing, by way of quite a few tidbits that promise to be news to most viewers, America hardly has a monopoly on “oppression,” what he gives with one hand D’ Souza takes with the other: D’ Souza not...

    The film begins in formulaic fashion, introducing us slowly to the ensemble cast that is about to flee for their lives for the rest of the movie, while also giving us the backstory on how a government group called “The New Founding Fathers” have instituted “the Purge,” while Internet preachers rail against it as a form of false, secular religion. Then the sirens go off, the population huddles behind closed doors and “commencement” of the purge begins with ticking clock, an excellent suspense element.

    According to Nikki Finke the weekend box office is not only refusing to recover, it has slipped even further behind with a stunning 29% drop over last year. Despite all the industry happy talk around "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," the sequel opened well below where other under-performers have this summer and has no dropped 53% from last weekend. "Dawn" will do fine, no question, but within the context of what this summer needs, it is nothing close to a savior, nor were this weekend's three wide releases. "Planes: Fire & Rescue," "Sex Tape," and "Purge: Anarchy" offered...

    OK -- I just saw the movie "America." Needless to say, I think all conservatives should see it. But we need to do more than preach to the choir. Because this movie not only refutes the 30-year libel and slander of our great nation by the Zinn/Alinsky left, but it also shines the spotlight on Hillary's and Obama's efforts to destroy our nation, by NAME -- all the while presenting a powerful positive message about who we are and what it really means to be an American. So I think we need to put this important film in the face...

    The good news is that Tammy is not a crappy remake of the 1957 Tammy movie with Debbie Reynolds that spawned three sequels and a TV comedy series. The bad news is that this one is much worse. It’s a desperate and brainless vehicle for Melissa McCarthy, which she wrote herself, with her husband, Ben Falcone, who also directed, with all the efficiency and verve of an abandoned Volkswagen on the Jersey Turnpike. There isn’t a single shred of evidence that either of them has one iota of talent in the world of filmmaking. Tammy is not just a celebration...

    NEW YORK – The political left is coming out “screaming,” with “guns blazing,” in an attempt to dampen the audience for the highly anticipated film “America: Imagine a World Without Her,” its maker told WND just before its Hollywood premiere. Dinesh D’Souza recalled that the left’s strategy with his first political documentary, “2016: Obama’s America,” was to ignore it. “You would almost not know ’2016′ existed if you just followed the leftist press and their Internet blogs,” D’Souza told WND in an exclusive phone interview. “It was only when the pied piper Obama came out yelling that everybody else on...

    Audiences will get more than a dystopian future when they line up to see Dawn of the Planet of the Apes next month. The second film in the rebooted Planet of the Apes franchise reportedly packs a pro-gun control message, according to a new review of the film in Variety. The story also touches on environmental fear mongering, albeit in a reduced fashion compared to the first installment. The “Apes” franchise has always been a politically loaded one, and this latest entry states its left-wing credo in ways both allegorically implicit and bluntly direct. (You’d have to be pretty obtuse...

    The new Godzilla is out, and while I'm not the biggest fan I saw it last night and enjoyed it. Some dissapointing statements were made by the filmmaker about the film being about climate change. Seeing the film, I don't understand how he would make that connection other than to score Hollywood points. That isn't what it is about. The original film was about the destructive power of the atomic bomb, and the beliefs that despite our technological arrogance, nature was still in control. This is the opposite of saying that emitting some carbon dioxide can destroy the Earth. Happily,...

    Someone should tell Warner Bros. that when they’ve got a presence as big as Godzilla, they don’t need movie stars, because frankly, who remembers the characters in a rampaging-kaiju movie anyway? Still, just to be safe, the studio has stuffed Gareth Edwards’ deafening, effects-driven reboot with an Oscar winner (Juliette Binoche), three Oscar nominees (Ken Watanabe, Sally Hawkins and David Strathairn), an Emmy winner (Bryan Cranston) and an Olsen sister, leaving scarcely enough screen time for the monster itself. Worldwide B.O. will be massive when “Godzilla” stomps into theaters beginning May 14, bound to crush the $379 million earned by...

    Share This: I rarely review movies, unless something interesting comes along and then disappears quickly, without fanfare. “Enemy” is one of those forgotten treats. It came out a few months ago, and now, it’s already on ITunes. I suggest you watch it. Don’t blame me if you hate it. Well, okay - blame me. For most reviewers, it came off as a bombastic, amateurish, murky tale about a man finding his exact replica in a rented film. It’s been described as self-consciously deep - a beginner’s attempt at appearing sophisticated by shrouding plot with ambiguity, darkness and shocking imagery. It’s...

    "Heaven is for Real" Review A couple of years ago some people in the church in which I served at the time began asking me one by one about a book they had read.

So I concluded that it was my duty at that point to read...you guessed it...The Shack. I read the book and posted a strongly critical review online as a way to help people see the danger in that novel.

    (Reuters) - Hollywood has embraced God in a big - and lucrative - way. The movie "Heaven is for Real," which depicts the story of a young boy who claims to have visited heaven during a near death experience, is the fourth faith-based film this year to stir movie-going audiences with impressive box office numbers. Made for $12 million, the film, which stars Greg Kinnear, collected $21.5 million over the Easter weekend in U.S. and Canadian theaters, finishing third at the box office behind bigger budget films "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" from Walt Disney and "Rio 2" from Fox....

The answer is No. He’s made zillions from the Disney adventure movies.

In the new film Heaven is for Real, the parents of Colton Burpo (Connor Corum) feel that pain.

    Noah, the fanatical environmentalist anti-religious big budget movie, has crashed to 6th place, where it’s closely tied with the low budget God’s Not Dead, a Christian film. Noah had a budget of $125 million and is struggling to make that back. God’s Not Dead has a budget of $2 million and has made it back many times over. Noah is playing in over 3,282 theaters, while G0d’s Not Dead is playing in 1,860 theaters. While the final box office figures for the weekend aren’t in yet, current estimates place Noah in 6th place with $7 million for the weekend and...

The film, which stars Chris Evans as a scrawny World War Two reject given super powers from an experimental serum, easily exceeded the April take for the racing movie "Fast Five," which collected $86.2 million in ticket sales in April 2011. "Noah," starring Russell Crowe as the biblical figure, was second with $17 million in ticket...

    The new film "Noah" stars Russell Crowe as the man chosen by God to collect pairs of Earth's animals on a massive ark to save them from a global flood. The film, which opened March 28, is sizing up to be a Biblical blockbuster, replete with star power and stunning special effects. But how realistic is it? While many people consider the story of Noah's Ark merely an instructive myth or parable about God's punishment for man's wickedness, others believe that the story is historically accurate. To them, Noah's tale describes events that really happened only a few thousand years...

    AMAZING. Hollywood just killed God, and almost no critic noticed how it quietly slipped a green human-hater in his place. I never thought you could make a two-hour film about Noah and his ark without mentioning “God” even once, but director Darren Aronofsky has managed it in his $142 million epic, which opened last week. His Noah, played by a muttering Russell Crowe, prays to a different deity, a much nastier one called “the creator” who seems to brood on global warming. Hey, what a coincidence! So does Aronofsky, who last year declared, “climate change as an enemy of the...

    Noah has topped the box office, but the opening weekend is about marketing dollars. At a production budget of over $125 million and poor audience responses, Paramount had to put some serious money into promotion.Reportedly that may be something in the $50 – $75 million range on marketing to get people to see Noah. That’s short of its weekend box office total which is likely to be under $50 million.But while you can get audiences to show up for the opening weekend, you can’t make them like it.Cinemascore’s rating for Noah is a C. That’s the worst movie they have...
