  • College Film Major in California - conservative? Oxymoron?

    Looking for Freeper advice. My son is applying to colleges that have a Film major. He wants to be a producer. He wants to start his own business. We are in California, and you wouldn't think that CA is veteran friendly, but California does grant tuition waivers for all California public colleges for 0%+ disabled Vets. I'm afraid that some more liberal colleges will require the Covid VAX. I'm adamant about my kids not getting that vax. Any Freepers in the Film industry? Is there such a thing as a conservative or semi-conservative public college in California?
  • Di Leo: The SAG-AFTRA Deal and Avoiding Reality

    A 118-day-long strike by the actors and writers of the film and television industry apparently came to an end on November 8, as negotiators came to an agreement at last, ready to send to the rank and file for their vote. Just as Hollywood had to adjust to a changing business model when the movie world had to make room for television, and again when free TV had to make room for cable and video tape, this agreement will hopefully help their world adapt to the decline of cinema attendance and the increase in streaming. On top of that, they...

    A typical American family sits at the breakfast table, starting their day. Suddenly, there are huge thuds at the front door, sounds of men yelling, "FBI! Open the door!" They break the door down, rush into the kitchen, and grab the father. They wrestle handcuffs on him as his wife and children scream and cry in terror. As this is happening, other uniformed agents rifle through the family's belongings and papers throughout the house. The father is led out the front doorway of his house (on purpose, as we learn later in the movie) and into a waiting black unmarked...

    On Feb. 24, 2022, the day Russia invaded Ukraine, Sean Penn had a meeting scheduled in Kyiv with Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky for a film he was making on the comedian-turned-politician. Even while presiding over his country’s defenses in the largest land war in Europe since World War II, Zelensky kept the meeting with the American actor and his crew — though he made them wait a few hours.
  • Oppenheimer was no Superhero: The latest Oppenheimer movie is yet another tiresome replay of the same old liberal fairy tales of the Cold War.

    American Thinker ^ | 07/22/2023 | Frank Friday
    Hollywood really does seem to be running out of new ideas. British big-budget director Christopher Nolan had his successes a few years ago with yet another round of Batman movies, but his expensive, visually lavish, films have otherwise not drawn large audiences. His new release, about J. Robert Oppenheimer, the scientist who helped build the first atomic bombs, seems very much just another thin remake of a story long told. It is based on a 17-year-old book, American Prometheus, that was itself started way back in 1980. The late Cold War era featured miniseries, movies, documentaries, and plays all about...

    Is human trafficking one giant right-wing conspiracy? That’s been the insinuation of the left-wing press as they froth at the mouth to attack Sound of Freedom, the surprise box-office hit starring Jim Caveziel.The film, which is based on a true story, centers on a federal agent who rescues a boy from captivity in South America. When he finds out that the boy’s sister was left behind, he quits his day job and embarks on a thrilling extraction mission to get her out. As action movies go, it follows a formula that was once common in Hollywood (you know, before all...

    While big studios may not flood the zone with faith-based content, Angel Studios and Wedgwood Circle may still have something to teach them. “Jesus Revolution” and “The Chosen” are not just Christian dramas but part of a revolution in faith entertainment. The former — a feel-good movie about hippies who returned to Christ during the 1970s, starring former “Cheers” and “Frasier” star Kelsey Grammer — has grossed more than $52 million since its debut a few weeks ago, making it the most successful film released by studio heavyweight Lionsgate since 2019.But the instructive parable may be its predecessor. Since its...

    I dont think I have done a film review here, so let me catch up, huge film buff here. My long standing list of best films were as follows. 1&2 tied: Monty Python Holy Grail/Monty Python Life of Brian. 3:Aliens 4:5th Element 5:Rubber I know thats an odd list, but they all have their certain appeal to me. That list changed recently when Clerks 3 came out. I am a massive Kevin Smith fan (yeah I know hes far to the left), but all of the weird crap that has happened to me in life, is almost as if he...

    As a fan of horror films whose wife doesn't share my affection for them, I'm encouraged to watch movies when I travel on business if I ever get a free evening. Tuesday night was just such a night, and there were options. First, there was a 7:40 showing of Evil Dead Rise. I enjoy most things of the Evil Dead franchise, so I figured this would be the option. But I also noticed there was another intriguing movie playing at this particular Southern California movie theater that I'd never heard about, called Nefarious, at 7:20. I checked out the trailer....

    Sean Patrick Flanery and Jordan Belfi in Nefarious I don’t do movie reviews because I don’t watch very many movies. I have a handful of movies that I dust off for semi-annual viewings (The Man Who Would Be King, Zulu, The Wind and the Lion, Master and Commander, Patton, We Were Soldiers Once, and Black Hawk Down among them), but movie-going is just not my thing. It seems like that when I do go out; my wife has chosen a movie, like, for instance, Father Stu and The Passion of the Christ.When we do find a non-woke and non-morally...

File Photo by David Silpa/UPI | License Photo Jan. 16 (UPI) -- Italian screen legend Gina Lollobrigida, whose sultry roles in the 1950s and 1960s established her as a international sex symbol, has died, Italian media reported Monday.

    For Alexandra Pelosi, the brutal attack on her father earlier this year was a culmination of vitriol that had been building for decades. Her family’s name, she says, has been weaponized for years, turned into a curse word for Republicans. **SNIP** The bubbling political rhetoric that led to that moment is chronicled in a new documentary premiering Tuesday at 9 p.m. ET on HBO. The film, “Pelosi in the House," directed and produced by Alexandra Pelosi, the youngest of House Speaker Nancy Pelosi's five children, follows the elder Pelosi’s career over three decades. **SNIP** “There’s a thread from the very...

    Come on, man … Those who have found the scandals surrounding the Bidens — and not just Hunter — fascinating will find themselves amused by this irreverent comedy My Son Hunter. “None of this is true,” Gina Carano informs us while playing a Secret Service protection agent, “except for all the facts.”The new offering from Breitbart Films, Phelim McAleer, and director Robert Davi places tongue firmly in cheek for most of the proceedings. Very early on, a drugged-out Hunter (Laurence Fox) encounters a small dog at an orgy, who proceeds to warn him via thought bubbles that maybe he’s getting...
