    ...“All I’ve ever done is tell the truth,” says Jones, seated on a couch in his palatial Bel Air home, and about to dish some outrageous gossip. “I’ve got nothing to be scared of, man.”... ...You just mentioned the Clintons, who are friends of yours. Why is there still such visceral dislike of them? What are other people not seeing in Hillary, for example, that you see? It’s because there’s a side of her — when you keep secrets, they backfire. Like what secrets? This is something else I shouldn’t be talking about. You sure seem to know a lot....

    Elijah Cummings has had enough of the Benghazi committee! On Oct. 22, the U.S. Representative accused the Republican-led investigation into the 2012 attacks of being a fraud and that the committee’s only concerned with ruining Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign! [....] Do you agree with Rep. Elijah Cummings, HollywoodLifers? Do you think the Benghazi committee is a sham meant to hurt Hillary?

  • BitTorrent study finds most file-sharers are monitored

    Anyone using file-sharing service BitTorrent to download the latest film or music release is likely to be monitored, UK-based researchers suggest. A Birmingham University study indicates that an illegal file-sharer downloading popular content would be logged by a monitoring firm within three hours. The team said it was "surprised" by the scale of the monitoring. Copyright holders could use the data to crack down on illegal downloads. The three-year research was carried out by a team of computer scientists who developed software that acted like a BitTorrent file-sharing client and logged all the connections made to it. BitTorrent is a...

    Fox Business News Calls Muppets Communist; Debate Goes Viral A segment on the network was highlighted by Media Matters, reigniting a conversation about whether or not there are political messages in children's movies. If you Googled news about “Muppets” on Monday you were treated to hundreds of news stories and blog items debating whether Disney’s lovable creatures were Communists or not. You can thank Fox Business News and Media Matters for that. Eric Bolling of Follow the Money set the stage on Friday when he hosted a 7-minute segment that argued that The Muppets film – featuring bad-guy oilman Tex...
  • Top Ten Most Overrated Actors/Actresses of All Time

    It’s been almost two years since I posted at Big Hollywood regarding the Top 10 Most Overrated Directors of All Time. I’ve had a chance to reflect and think about the crimes I committed in that post. And, to paraphrase Mr. Eko from the greatest TV show of all time, “Lost,” I ask no forgiveness because I have committed no sin … except leaving Spike Lee and Tim Burton off the list, that is. So, because you all enjoyed that list so much, and because I apparently have a death wish, it’s time for another: The Top 10 Most Overrated...
  • Sarah Palin ‘is’ America!

    06/26/2011 7:23:18 PM PDT · by Ira_Louvin · 8 replies
    Barack Obama’s reelection is of primary importance to the Hollywood Left , therefore things of major Leftist import are on a bit of a hold. Firey visionaries of The Progressive New World Order are scheduled for casting their Hollywood scripts post-election lest the unthinkable happen and Sarah Palin become the 45th President of the United States. It is actually an infuriating time for Hollywood because of the “Wait” and “The Hold”. Since massive amounts of money are involved, the second stage of the Obama Nation really can’t explode until The Man is back in office. Educating Americans can be so...

    The biting highlight is most definitely the mutual backrubs President Obama and Jon Stewart lovingly reward one another with. But the video gets most everyone else right and further proves our theory that Stewart’s intellectual dishonesty and clown pose has opened him up for the first time to effective mockery. You can already hear Jon Stewart’s response
  • Movie Review: Quantum of Solace

    03/25/2009 12:02:13 PM PDT · by ReformationFan · 26 replies · 1,594+ views
    By some tortured, objective filmmaking standard it might be possible to make the case that Quantum of Solace isn’t the worst James Bond film of all time, but I defy anyone to argue that it isn’t the least satisfying. After all, a bad James Bond film is still a James Bond film. There is that going for it. Invisible cars and Grace Jones have done no small amount of damage but in the smoking, campy wreckage there still lies a James Bond film. Unfortunately, in the smoking, plodding wreckage of Quantum of Solace that scrap of comfort is nowhere to...

    ...The left can’t compete in the Christian market. Let’s face it, the folks who declare Robert Mapplethorpe “art” simply have no credibility in that particular market. With that said, Country is a family friendly format they still think they have a chance of corrupting, and Miley Cyrus may be their perky little Trojan horse into that industry...

    Has “Burn Notice” gotten new writers? They used to have some very insightful comments about guns and crime (e.g., see the episode in season 2 entitled “Lesser Evil”). Yet, now one needs a scorecard to keep tracks of all the errors in some of the shows. Take some of the errors in the most recent show, “Partners in Crime,” posted on Hulu. At 10:10 into the episode, Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell) explains to Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) that an individual who they are checking up on in Florida, “Owns a gun, but it is registered.” The only problem is that...
  • Cubas Funniest Celebutard Videos

    Hollywood celebutards have long embraced the most brutal of communist dictators from their lofty Malibu perches. Young people have no frame of reference with which to understand socialism and communism. Obama’s youth cult didn’t live through the cold war. They don’t know about Radio Free Europe, which provided precious information to the victims of communism living behind what was then known as the iron curtain that divided Europe into two areas, making much of Eastern Europe a prison. Armed guards were posted at the borders, and many desperate citizens were killed attempting to flee from a life of oppression.

    Big Hollywood ^ | November 17, 2009 | Michael S. Rulle Jr.
    NBC’s “Law and Order” is in its 20th season. The economy is weak, so they have devolved to converting White House talking points into weekly shows. Last week, “Doped” was a farcical equivalent of “Damien Thorn meets Karen Silkwood.” Pharmaceutical companies and Doctors are worse than drug cartels. The killers in the previous week’s episode on such cartels were more sympathetic than the health professionals.

    Big Hollywood’s Alexander Marlow has written a spot-on assessment of “Saturday Night Live’s” skit about Obama. This video clip of Chevy Chase on CNN bolsters Marlow’s claim and reveals the truth behind “SNL’s” political parodies: VIDEO: Chevy Chase Admits SNL is a Left-wing Show To paraphrase Groucho Marx, a child of five could improve on this immensely. Anyone could make these parodies of Obama funnier. Obama’s mannerisms, speech patterns, physical oddities (ears) etc. are ripe for satire. Add Michelle Obama and Joe Biden to the mix and it only gets better. The audience would be rolling in the aisles. Obama...

    On August 25th 2009, Big Hollywood’s Patrick Courrielche broke the story of a conference call he attended with other “rising artist and art community luminaries”: On Thursday August 6th, I was invited by the National Endowment for the Arts to attend a conference call scheduled for Monday August 10th hosted by the NEA, the White House Office of Public Engagement, and United We Serve. The call would include “a group of artists, producers, promoters, organizers, influencers, marketers, taste-makers, leaders or just plain cool people to join together and work together to promote a more civically engaged America and celebrate how...
