  • 'Walking Dead' Drops Liberal Platitudes, Goes Conservative

    Big-Hollywood ^ | 22 Oct 2012, 11:16 AM PDT | Kurt Schlichter
    "We are only two episodes into the new season, and it appears that AMC's "The Walking Dead" may have been resurrected after last year’s mostly craptacular second season, which was preceded by a pretty craptacular first season. And the reason seems to be the conservative outlook that the show has now embraced. Let’s pause for a moment to let the fanatic liberal fanboy virgins fulminate and fret over the notion that their favorite zombie show may have been saved by their characters’ (and the writers’) change – unconscious almost certainly – from a liberal world view to a conservative one.......

    I just had to post a thread about a screening I saw this morning for Hating Breitbart. It was an extremely emotional ride to take and made you realize with every single frame in the film just how important Andrew was and how much he is missed. You can't help but well up with tears in your eyes for this man who we should be putting up next to this nation's greatest icon's on a daily basis. I find it hard to think of a man who did more for the Conservative movement and truth and fairness in the media...

    "Dedicated fans of The Walking Dead already heard that a primary character will bite the dust this season. Early money is on '****', who has not been central to the main storylines, but zombie series lovers should not count on the show’s writers to play it that safe.

    The three-ring circus known as the AMC/Dish breach-of-contract trial found another ring to perform in yesterday when a sobbing Dish executive stormed out of the courtroom after being insulted by the judge and then returned to yell at an opposition attorney and possibly physically rough up his father who was in a wheelchair. And all this happened after the judge ruled the hard drive on the executive's computer should be seized immediately because he suspects she's been deleting important evidence, according to the New York Post. Before we unspool the unbelievable and unkindly details from yesterday, allow us first to...

Quotes are regularaly thrown around, scenes referenced and a no-brainer sequel has long been discussed. Earlier this year, it seemed like the Farrelly Brothers were getting closer than ever, but then Jim Carrey dropped out of the film. The brothers took to Twitter Tuesday to tell fans the film was still in the works, the script is almost done, and it has a title: Dumb and Dumber To. Read more after the jump.Here’s the original...

    When is a Bond film not a Bond film? It’s a question likely to prey on the minds of the very many cinema goers who will see this 23rd official 007 adventure. Skyfall shakes together familiar elements of the Ian Fleming canon – the cars, the guns, the exotic locales with the dames to match – into a blistering comic book escapade that the old Bond, and one suspects Fleming too, would find altogether alien.

    Washington, D.C. (October 8, 2012) -- TV makers continue to push 3D TV despite a lack of evidence that consumers have any interest. But one top Sony executive has finally acknowledged that fact publicly. Speaking to, Fergal Gara, Sony Computer Entertainment's UK chief, said "consumers decide how relevant (3D) is. It's fair to say consumers have decided it's not huge important at this time." The Associated Press reported this month that the number of 3D viewers in the U.S. is so small that Nielsen is unable to effectively measure them. The ratings service says the number is likely around...
