    Pretty much any movie with Peter Sellers in it is my favorite movie, but especially his starring roles in the Pink Panther movie series. In this particular scene in I think is "The Pink Panther Strikes Again", Inspector Jacques Closeau is the midst of tracking down former Chief Inspector Dreyfus and stop him from using the Fosbender Lazer weapon again. At the hotel, Closeau enters to get a "reum", and while the elderly gentleman is examining the check-in card afterward, Jacques encounters a scruffy, small canine. "Does your dog bite?" Closeau inquires. "No," replies the German mountain innkeeper. With that,...

    This is my fifth adaptation of Jane Eyre. The others are the 1943 movie with Orson Welles and Joan Fontaine, 1970 movie with George C. Scott and Susannah York, 1983 with Timothy Dalton and Zelah Clark, and 2006 with Toby Stephens and Ruth Wilson. The version starts by not following the chronology of the novel. The first image is Mia Wasikowska as Jane Eyre running from Thornfield Hall. Of course, anyone has read the novel knows why she is fleeing. She eventually finds refuge at the Rivers’ home. There is stunning scenery in this part as the filming was done...

    The “Saints” aren’t marching in just yet. After being postponed over COVID-19 concerns, the much-anticipated “The Many Saints of Newark” is finally set to open on September 24, 2021 — almost a year after its original planned release date. “The Sopranos” prequel, which is being produced by New Line Cinemas and released by Warner Bros., was originally slated to hit theaters and streaming services in September 2020, Variety reported. The David Chase-created mafia flick was later rescheduled for this spring due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

    Today's image is a video at link. Explanation: Yes, but have you seen a movie of Jupiter and Saturn's Great Conjunction? The featured time-lapse video was composed from a series of images taken from Thailand and shows the two giant planets as they angularly passed about a tenth of a degree from each other. The first Great Conjunction sequence shows a relative close up over five days with moons and cloud bands easily visible, followed by a second video sequence, zoomed out, over 9 days. Even though Jupiter and Saturn appeared to pass unusually close together on the sky on...

    Morgan Freeman picked up his bullhorn and baseball bat to star in the 1989 Warner Bros. movie. Joe Clark, the uncompromising New Jersey high school principal who employed a bullhorn and baseball bat to round his students into shape en route to becoming the subject of the inspirational Morgan Freeman film Lean on Me, has died. He was 82. Clark died Tuesday after a long illness at his home in Gainesville, Florida, his family announced. Soon after taking over as head of Eastside High School in Paterson, New Jersey, Clark expelled 300 students for fighting, vandalism, abusing teachers and drug...

    What are your favorite Christmas movies? Please include heartwarming family-friendly movies even if they are not specifically Christmas-oriented. I would include a recent classic, Christmas Oranges, and favorites from better eras like The Bishop's Wife, Christmas in Connecticut, Miracle on 34th Street, A Christmas Carol, Its A Wonderful Life, Rudolph The Red Nosed Reindeer, Santa Claus Is Coming To Town, Frosty The Snowman, and A Charlie Brown Christmas. What would you add to that list?

    LOS ANGELES, CA—Hollywood is hard at work remaking the Jimmy Stewart classic It's A Wonderful Life for modern audiences, and film critics are praising some recent plot leaks from the new script. In the new version of the film, George Bailey's guardian angel will explain to him that since he is a straight white male, he should probably just go ahead and jump in the river.

    Tweetstapo’s Ministry Of Propaganda is at it again. This time, its operatives targeted a popular conservative movie detailing the Democratic Party’s effort to use false allegations of collusion to destroy President Donald Trump. The Washington Times reported that “Twitter blacklisted for a day an account for a popular conservative movie that tells the story of how the FBI, news media and Democrats tried to bring down President Trump on false Russia allegations.”On Thursday, Twitter suspended the account for “The Plot Against The President” and refused to give a reason for the suspension. After a fierce backlash, the social media company...
  • Box Office Sinks to New Low as 600 Theaters Close and Few New Films Open

    The weekend before Thanksgiving is one of the most desired release dates. It’s been home to entries in the Harry Potter, Twilight, and Hunger Games franchises; in 2019, “Frozen II” opened to $130 million. This year, weekend grosses won’t pass $7 million and only “Freaky” made more than $1 million. These numbers cap a week of bad-to-worse news for theaters. Announcements from Universal codifed its Premium VOD plans, which suggest that the new maximum window, likely adapted by other distributors, is five weekends after opening. Warner Bros. placed “Wonder Woman 1984” on HBO Max for 30 days, along with theaters...

    Our star movie columnist Kathy Shaidle is off this week, so your humble host has to fill in. Among the casualties of this lost summer is the summer blockbuster: for the first time since the mid-seventies, when Steven Spielberg and George Lucas seized the season for sharks and space aliens, the season has passed blockbuster-free. On the other hand, summer-in-the-city-wise, we seem back to the Seventies of Death Wish, of looting and random violence, and no law and order to be found. It isn't really a return to Death Wish New York, of course: the wholesale demographic transformation of American...

    American movie theaters reopening from a six-month coronavirus lockdown are debuting the new spy thriller "Tenet," giving them a boost from a possible hit and a chance to newly gauge their business model. Warner Bros. introduced the movie in Europe, Canada and Korea last weekend, and “Tenet” landed in U.S. theaters -- 75 percent of which are open -- along with cinemas in China on Friday. Some states, such as New York, have kept theaters closed, though more are coming online just in time for “Tenet.” New Jersey and some California cinemas reopened Friday. The strong international launch of “Tenet”...
  • Hunter Biden’s deals ‘served’ China and Chinese military, new film claims

    Hunter Biden’s business dealings in China served the “strategic interests” of the country’s communist government and military — and may have imperiled American national security, claims a new documentary exclusively previewed by The Post. “Riding the Dragon: The Bidens’ Chinese Secrets” highlights several deals that Hunter Biden was involved in as a board member of the Beijing-based BHR Partners investment firm. The film also alleges that Hunter was only able to get meetings with Chinese officials — and secure $1 billion in funding — “because of who his father was: vice president of the United States” and then-President Barack Obama’s...
  • Charlize Theron Says ‘Overweight’ Steven Seagal ‘Can Barely Fight’: ‘He’s Not Very Nice to Women’

    Chalize Theron has criticized fellow actor Steven Seagal, calling into question his martial arts skills and sharing that “he’s not very nice to women.” While promoting her latest action film, The Old Guard on Howard Stern’s radio show, the 44-year-old actress said that she prepares for her action projects by watching old fighting videos, and has often come across one of Seagal, who has said he has a black belt in karate. “At night I’ll go online to watch fighters or watch people fight and you always come across that odd Seagal video of him ‘fighting’ in Japan, but he...

    The year 2020 in America feels like the end scene in 2019’s Joker where Gotham burns as the citizenry embraces the chaos spurred on by chaos-messiah, Arthur Fleck, the Joker. For the last four years, an audience of Americans watch America embrace the chaos-messiahship of the left as their saints questioned the legitimacy of the 2016 election, immediately sought impeachment, flip-flops on COVID-19, and now stands idly by as long-reigning progressive governments in Minneapolis, Seattle, and Portland descend into Jokeresque chaos. When the movie debuted last October, opinion pieces from left to right decried the movie. Claims from leftists wanted...

    Conservative Christians are using religious liberty as a basis to oppress the marginalized as well as traumatize parents of children who identify as LGBTQ, according to a retired Episcopal Church bishop and a filmmaker. Retired New Hampshire Bishop Gene Robinson and filmmaker Daniel Karslake were hosted for a discussion by the Reconciling Ministries Network (RMN), an unofficial United Methodist LGBTQ caucus, on July 15. The bishop and the film producer equated God’s purposes with intersectional identity politics of the Left. Robinson was the first man openly in a same-sex partnership to be consecrated a bishop in the Episcopal Church and...

    Danny Trejo: The actor who went from prisoner to film star [Image] Danny Trejo has been shot, stabbed, crushed, eaten and tortured . . . multiple times. Con Air, Zombie Hunter and 3-Headed Shark Attack (yes . . . that's a real film) are just three of the movies in which he's ended up dead. If you're a Breaking Bad fan, he's the guy whose head famously ends up on top of a tortoise. According to one survey, the 76-year-old has died on screen more than any other actor. "It shows I've been working," he jokes. And if you didn't...
  • ‘Uncle Tom’ Reveals the Truth About Race Hustlers in America

    Never would I recommend a documentary to viewers without firmly believing every word spoken during a 106 minute film like “Uncle Tom.” I know it can have a profound impact on blacks, whites, police, and non-police alike. My heart hurts for America as I see the devastation occurring in our culture, but more so, to our inter-racial relationships. Moreover, I am deeply concerned since law enforcement is at the epicenter of racial discord. After learning of the film, “Uncle Tom,” I immediately paid $20 to watch it on pay per view with my wife. We didn’t simply view the film,...
