  • Why Mainstream Critics Are Panning Clint Eastwood's Latest Film, Richard Jewell

    American Thinker ^ | 12/23/2019 | T.R. Clancy
    Not every mainstream movie critic hates Clint Eastwood's highly affecting Richard Jewell.  But the critics who hate it hate it an awful lot.  The story of how an out-of-control FBI and a "completely irresponsible press" ruined the life of the heroic security guard whose quick action saved many lives during the 1996 Centennial Park bombing is legitimately viewed as Eastwood's take on what's happening in America right now.  The irony that the movie was released the same week as the I.G. report exposing the FBI's lawlessness in Crossfire Hurricane must be particularly galling for mainstream journos who staked their reputations on...

    Years ago a professor of film studies told me that "Breaking Away" was one of the best "coming of age" films he'd ever seen because it didn't involve sex, but rather a boy being disillusioned with his cycling childhood heroes. "Richard Jewell" is in many respects a coming of age movie. Most people know the story: Atlanta Olympic Games security guard Richard Jewell (Paul Walter Hauser), who had been fired from a police department and from a college for excessive enthusiasm, finds a bomb in a backpack left at the Atlanta Centennial venue. He calls the police, assists in moving...
  • Delta responds to backlash over in-flight film censorship of 'homosexual content'

    Delta Air Lines will show unedited versions of “Booksmart” and “Rocketman” in its in-flight film offerings after critics called out the airline for censoring sexuality, including same-sex love, in previously deleted scenes. The company said in a statement Thursday that it did not ask for any “homosexual content” to be removed from the films. “We value our in-flight entertainment options as a means to reflect the diversity of the world,” the company said. “We are reviewing the processes of our third-party editing vendors to ensure that they are aligned with our values of diversity and inclusion.” The issue of censorship...
  • This Director Is Filming in Georgia Despite the Hollywood Boycotts

    There's one director who doesn't care what his peers think. While the rest of Hollywood is running away from the state of Georgia in protest of the pro-life "heartbeat bill," which bans abortions the moment a heartbeat is detected, Clint Eastwood and Warner Brothers are staying put for their new film, Richard Jewell. The studio has explained to the press that the film, based on the true story of the bombing at Atlanta's Centennial Park during the 1996 Summer Olympics, would be best served by geographical authenticity. “We have made the decision to tell this compelling story — based on...
  • Olivia Wilde's mom Leslie Cockburn loses VA House race to Republican 'Bigfoot erotica' fan

    11/06/2018 9:25:44 PM PST · by TigerClaws · 36 replies
    Actress Olivia Wilde's mother, Leslie Cockburn, has lost in the House race for Virginia's 5th Congressional District to an alleged Bigfoot erotica fan. Republican Denver Riggleman beat Democrat Cockburn, an Emmy award-winning journalist and first time candidate with 53.6 per cent to 46.3 per cent - despite tough campaigning by the Hollywood star's mother. The House star, who backed and campaigned for her mom's run, has not commented on her loss. Cockburn sensationally revealed over the summer that Riggleman was a fan of 'bigfoot erotica', suggesting the odd fetish made him unfit to govern. Actress Olivia Wilde's mother, Leslie Cockburn...

    On Thanksgiving Day, Olivia Wilde is fighting for thousands of DREAMers. The 33-year-old actress called out Ivanka Trump in a Thanksgiving Day Instagram post after realizing the businesswoman is following her on the social media app. Wilde asked the president’s daughter, 36, to use her White House influence to advocate for a “CLEAN Dream Act” — an unaltered version of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program (also known as DACA). “I see you’re following me on Instagram. This Thanksgiving I would be grateful if you use the influence you have to advocate for a CLEAN Dream Act by December,”...

    Celebrities keep using the red carpet to promote a group that sheds more innocent blood through abortion than any other group in the United States. On Sunday at the Tony Awards, several stars wore pins and ribbons to show their support of the Planned Parenthood abortion chain and the pro-abortion American Civil Liberties Union. The two groups often work together to challenge laws that protect unborn babies and moms from abortion. Variety reports “Star Wars” actor Mark Hamill wore a blue ribbon to support the ACLU, while Hollywood icon Sally Field, “Crazy Ex-Girlfriend” star Rachel Bloom and actress Olivia Wilde...

    Susan Sarandon, Olivia Wilde and Edward Norton are among the more than 90 entertainers urging Sen. Elizabeth Warren to throw her hat in the 2016 presidential race. The group — which also includes Mark Ruffalo, Natasha Lyonne, Julia Stiles, and “The Avengers” director Joss Whedon — penned an open letter this week to the Massachusetts Democrat, pushing her to make a White House bid.

    Actress Olivia Wilde is featured on the cover of the September issue of Glamour magazine. Inside the glossy is an article in which Wilde talks about what life is like for her “being a working mom.” An article featuring the vacuous ramblings of the newby mom (“I wasn’t going to sacrifice myself because I was becoming a mother,” she told her interviewer) would be unworthy of comment here were it not for the pictorial that accompanied the article. Or, more specifically, the photo of Wilde sitting in the booth of some Hollywood diner, glammed up in a Roberto Cavalli dress,...

    In the heady days after the October 1 launch of the Affordable Care Act -- better known as ObamaCare -- Lady Gaga, Amy Poehler, Nina Dobrev, Rosario Dawson, Sarah Silverman, Olivia Wilde, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson, Pearl Jam, Lance Bass, John Legend, Alyssa Milano and Kerry Washington joined the President to encourage Americans to #getcovered. Since then, technical glitches and website snafus have so marred the ObamaCare website that the team who built it has been called to testify before Congress on Thursday. But there will be no celebrities flanking them on Capitol Hill, as the stars that helped launch...

    Breitbart's Big Hollywood ^ | April 21, 2013 | Christian Toto
    Liberals are spinning the growing body of evidence that the two suspects in the Boston Marathon terrorist bombings were likely motivated by radical Islamic beliefs. Case in point: The Incredible Burt Wonderstone star Olivia Wilde, who unleashed a tweet this weekend that tried to distract Americans from that probability. She also shamefully used the terrorist attack as a cudgel against gun control critics. First up--Wilde blames America for creating terrorists using a week-old op-ed about hunger strikes at Guantanamo Bay prison. (TWEET-AT-LINK) Wilde offers no criticism of President Barack Obama, who promised to shut Guantanamo Bay down five years ago...
