  • Lena Dunham promises to leave the country if Trump elected, Trump responds: ‘Now I have to win!’

    Rosie and Whoopi too. Frequently naked TV actor and horrific human being, Lena Dunham, is worried. Donald Trump is running for President and, if he wins, it will spark a global catastrophe or something. Honestly, we’re not entirely sure what she thinks is going to happen, and we don’t really care. She’s deep in the tank for Hillary, so it’s a safe bet she harbors the same fears about anyone who would dare usurp her chosen queen. Because of her deep-seated fears, she’s joined a growing list of Hollywood leftists who are incentivizing a Trump presidency by promising to leave...

    The Daily Beast ^ | April 22, 2016 | Marlow Stern
    The host of HBO’s ‘Real Time with Bill Maher’ criticized the size of our military and unloaded on his favorite punching bag, Donald Trump. Bill Maher, the unapologetically outspoken political satirist, began his program Real Time Friday night by assessing the recent New York presidential primaries. The HBO host was, naturally, a bit crestfallen that his preferred candidate, Bernie Sanders, lost out to by 16 points to Hillary Clinton—and that his nemesis, Donald Trump, won his home state handily. “The conventional wisdom is that it’s just Hillary and Trump. Those are our two choices,” said Maher during his monologue. “They...

    Now that the 2016 presidential election season is in full swing, which candidate(s) are people in the adult industry supporting? Every election year is a nail-biter for pornographers, who are wracked with worry over potential persecution from the next presidential administration. Demonizing the porn industry under the guise of protecting the public’s morality is an old politician’s trick. Charge XXX producers with obscenity, collect fines and put a dent in the debauchery. “Obscene” porn is illegal but not all porn is obscene. Content that was considered extreme 15 years ago might be closer to the norm now. In the late...

    While Hollywood is known as a hotbed of liberalism, a small, but influential group of entertainment industry conservatives exist. The Hollywood Right, as it might be called, has noted that the California Primary is going to matter for the first time in decades. The group of conservative directors, writers, and actors are banding together to stop Donald Trump and make certain that Ted Cruz wins enough delegates in the last in the nation contest to stop the mercurial real estate tycoon from clinching the Republican nomination on the first ballot. The theory is that since delegates become unbound after the...

    There’s a new movie currently in the works at Warner Brothers which will pitch two legendary monsters against each other: King Kong and Godzilla. King Kong, of course, was a gigantic, snorting, chest-beating gorilla which never felt a single shred of empathy for anyone in its life and was viewed, depending on who you ask, as either a rampaging monster or an anti-hero. Godzilla was a pre-historic, roaring, very strategic, fire-breathing lizard-like cross between a gorilla and a whale which saw itself as a driving force to restore balance to nature wherever that balance is disrupted – saving the world...

    We have surrendered our most primary weapon - our minds Back in ‘86 I saw Oliver Stone’s graphically intense ‘Platoon’. It was opening in a brand new theater with a screaming sound system that made you feel as though you were in the center of the battle. Sitting right across the aisle were two well-dressed, young, absolutely moronic parents who had their son sitting between them. He could not have been more than five. Stone’s ultra-intense Vietnam War masterpiece had the audience thoroughly keyed up. Roaring artillery and wholesale slaughter were coming from every direction without warning. The poor little...

    Actor Danny DeVito on Sunday called Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders "our Obi Wan," referencing the Jedi master from "Star Wars.""I just hugged the man who shook the hand of the Pope," DeVito said during a campaign rally for Sanders on Sunday when introducing the Vermont senator. (Sanders met the pope over the weekend, after speaking at a conference at the Vatican.) "We are going to go out and vote and put this man on Pennsylvania Avenue. ... Ladies and gentlemen, we are here for a hometown boy," Devito said to an audience of more than 28,000 in Brooklyn's Prospect...

    In the new movie, A Mother’s Worst Nightmare, TV One will explore the murder of Trayvon Martin by George Zimmerman. The network announced a new slate of 26 original movies at their Upfront presentation in New York City. Expectations for the movie will be high as the story explores one of America’s most controversial murders and trials. TV One says: A Mother’s Worst Nightmare is an urban true crime drama chronicling one of America’s most polarizing murder cases in recent history: the fatal shooting of Trayvon Martin, a 17-year-old African-American high school junior. The film centers on Sybrina Fulton, Martin’s...

    Critics are nearly unanimous: The movie "Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice" is a dog. That didn’t prevent the producers from grossing $193.2 million within four days of its March 25 release date, according to Box Office Mojo. The movie review website Rotten Tomatoes gives it a 29 percent rating, which is the same score given to “Dumb and Dumber To” (that's not a typo) and “Grudge Match” — a boxing movie featuring the fight between then 67-year-old Sylvester Stallone and 70-year-old Robert DeNiro.

    A pro-Israel activist says Fox News commentator Geraldo Rivera revealed his ignorance when he accused Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz of being anti-Semitic. While Rivera calls himself a Republican, it's apparent he doesn't like Senator Cruz. During a recent appearance on the Fox News Channel's The O'Reilly Factor, he made the following prediction about Cruz's chances in the upcoming New York GOP primary – and then defended his allegations on Fox & Friends: Rivera: "I think that he [Cruz] is going to get routed in New York – and deservedly so, aside from the stinking anti-Semitic implications that I see...

    A recent post noted that the top-rated television programs in 1965 included “The Beverly Hillbillies” at No. 2. Since I am likely the only one among your readers who remembers viewing the first episode of that series when it was telecast one evening in September 1962, I would like to say a few things about its virtues. The intellectuals hated “The Beverly Hillbillies.” They hated it for the same reasons ordinary Americans loved it: It offered thirty minutes of simple, clean comedy, crisp writing, and characters who were decent, honest, happy, and had plenty of moral fiber. The critics just...

    William Shatner is being sued for $170 million by a radio host who claims to be the “Star Trek” legend’s long-lost son. Peter Sloan has boldly gone and filed legal paperwork in Florida demanding Shatner submit to a DNA test and cease claiming he isn’t his father. Sloan, 59, claims his birth mother, late Canadian actress Kathy McNeil, had a brief affair with Captain Kirk in Toronto. She gave him up for adoption at 5 days old. But Shatner, 85, denies Sloan is his son, and claims the local radio host is trying to unfairly live long and prosper from...

    DVD Talk ^ | March 10, 2016 | Stuart Galbraith IV
    A handsomely made, finely acted miniseries, Jesus of Nazareth (1977) plays a lot like a distillation of the best components from all of the biblical epics of the 1940s-‘60s that had preceded it while generally avoiding those movies' flaws. Despite its all-star cast, for instance, Jesus of Nazareth steers clear of the sometimes goofy, distracting stunt casting found in George Stevens's The Greatest Story Ever Told (1965), mostly famously John Wayne as the Roman centurion with the single line, "Truly, this man was the Son of Gawd." It's less artful in some respects than King of Kings (1961), but improves...

According to the Trump supporters, their main takeaways are that he's a lot like a rapper, he won't make them slaves, and they're tired of all the jokes, like one of Wilmore's questions: "Are you voting for Trump because, as an orange-American, he's the only remaining candidate of color?" At the end, Wilmore makes them all take a Trump-style pledge...

"I predict that Trump may get as much as 25 percent of the African American vote," Rivera said on Fox News' "The O'Reilly Factor" on Thursday. "Why? Because he's anti-free trade or unfair trade. He's anti-immigration, the immigrants perceived by black Americans to being in direct competition to them." Rivera added that Trump is not responsible for bringing race into the political atmosphere, as the issue has been used by Democrats and Republicans...

Rather, the weirdest battle of the campaign has pitted Trump, the mercurial Republican front-runner, against Megyn Kelly, the Fox News superstar. Trump reopened hostilities when he tweeted, "Everybody should boycott the @megynkelly show. Never worth watching. Always a hit on Trump! She is sick, & the most overrated person on tv."

    No Trump, no show. Earlier today, Donald Trump announced that he wasn’t going to participate in the next GOP debate, which was scheduled to take place in Salt Lake City next week. Trump told Fox News “I think we’ve had enough debates,” and would instead be “making a major speech in front of a very important group of people.” Reaction to this was split. If you like Trump, you think that he doesn’t need to debate anymore. He just came off a series of major wins, and another night at the podium does nothing but give his detractors an opportunity...

    Friends of both Nancy and Ronald Reagan would often remark about how deeply and passionately they loved each other, even after decades of marriage, a rare thing indeed in a world where half of all marriages end in divorce. The love story of the greatest president of the 20th Century and the actress and dancer whom he met in the early 1950s would make a great subject for a movie if Hollywood cared to make it. But the romance of Nancy and Ronald Reagan also changed the world. Without her, there might not have been him.

In order to “avoid unexpected situations” like getting caught on train tracks, the ad suggests people should “get your car serviced at Ultra Tune.” Although the advertisement ends...

    Two-and-one-half months before last week's Iowa Caucus, columnist S.A. Miller of The Washington Times noted what could be called "The Trump Effect" on poll numbers with an article entitled "Donald Trump seen unlikely to win in Iowa despite poll numbers": Laura Kamienski, a Republican Party caucus precinct representative for Hiawatha District in Cedar Rapids ... said she expects a surprise in the caucus this cycle similar to former Sen. Rick Santorum's unexpected win in 2012. Mr. Santorum is back in the 2016 Republican race but is polling near the bottom of the crowded field in Iowa and nationally. ...Pollsters defended...

    Saturday Night Live did not just take aim at Republican presidential candidate Ted Cruz. The NBC comedy show also mocked his daughter, Catherine. (VIDEO-AT-LINK) In last night's cold open skit last night, an actor playing Cruz said, "First, my family, I would be nothing without the love and support of my incredible family like my daughter Catherine here." "Come here, sweetie," says the fake Cruz. "How about a hug for daddy?" "No," says the actress, clearly much older than the real life Catherine Cruz. "Come on, now, give daddy a hug for the camera?" "No." "Come here, sweetie. How about...

    That guitar he had destroyed for his movie The Hateful Eight was made in 1870. It was on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum. Tarantino left the clip in the movie because he liked the horrified reaction of Jennifer Jason Leigh, who realized at the time that it was not a replica but a priceless antique getting smashed. Everyone on the set was distraught except Tarantino, who reportedly smiled: The head of the museum was furious when he found out the guitar had been wrecked not in a random accident, but because Tarantino had failed to tell Kurt Russell about...

    Appalled by the over-representation of Muslims as terrorists in national security themed TV shows, President Obama called for broadcasters to air a more varied array of programs featuring Muslim characters. "One idea I came up with is a family comedy," the President said. "There's this daughter who refuses to marry the nephew her father has chosen for her. So, the father and nephew shoot her and dump the body in a river. But she comes back as a ghost or zombie and haunts them with a series of weekly pranks. In one episode the daughter disguises herself as salesperson in...

This is my country,” Goldberg said. “My mother, my grandmother, my great-grand folks, we busted ass to be here. I’m sorry. I’m an American. I’m not an African-American, I’m not a chick American, I’m an American!”

    Perhaps looking toward a future outside of politics, both President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton tried out some comedy bits this week. The President made the first volley calling Hillary "wicked smart" and "warm and funny." Hillary countered with "anybody who know me knows you can't buy me." The host of the HBO talk show Real Time with Bill Maher, called the efforts of the two "deliciously absurd and surreal. I wish I had thought of these jokes myself."
