  • '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.......
  • Just Saw Screening of Hating Brietbart

    Hatingbreitbart ^ | 10/22/2012 | my favorite headache
    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...

  • ‘The Walking Dead’: Season 3 Predictions Based On Graphic Novel Storylines'

    10/21/2012 4:40:33 PM PDT · by djone · 66 replies ^ | Tara Dodrill
    "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. Some fans believe that'****' will be the dearly departed character. A review of storylines from the graphic novel series will not offer true The Walking Dead spoilers, but do give insight into major plot arcs central to main characters. Panels On Pages believes .... death is likely, but perhaps will not occur...

  • Movie for a Sunday afternoon: "Only Angels Have Wings"(1939)

    You Tube ^ | 1939 | Howard Hawks This week's feature is Howard Hawks' excellent 1939 classic adventure about courageous mail pilots in South America and the women who love them. Cary Grant exceeds in a John Wayne/Humphrey Bogart-type role as their leader and the beautiful Rita Hayworth impresses in one of her earliest performances as his ex-flame. Definitely one of Hawks' best and the finest of his 5 films starring Mr. Grant.

  • Dish-AMC Trial Has Become 3-Ring Circus

    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...
