  • Netflix’s ‘Hollywood’ Could Have Been Great If It Wasn’t So Focused On Being Woke

    At the end of the day, 'Hollywood' doesn't care about telling a compelling story about interesting people, but is intent on demonstrating the importance of representation in media. There are two excellent stories at the center of “Hollywood,” Ryan Murphy’s alt-history saga of old Hollywood. An intrepid group of friends attempt to make a big studio romance starring a talented black actress in 1947. An aspiring actor must negotiate his desire for fame with his morals, in the backdrop of a sexually exploitive agent and the omnipresent risk of his homosexuality becoming discovered.Both of these stories are technically covered in...

    Imagine, you know someone who doesn’t know anything about WW2, and you had to explain how the US was attacked at Pearl Harbor, the significance of Doolittle’s raid, the odds the US was up against the Japanese, how Intel helped us win the battle of Midway, and just how crazy, non-politically correct, and determined the Greatest Generation was - all in 2 hours. That’s the movie Midway in a nutshell.

    The U.S. should NEVER put itself in that position. The Brits sent their civilian boaters to save them. Destroyers and most planes were left behind to 'save England.' Make sure the Strategic Petroleum Reserve is always filled. Get the hell out of the Middle East with no more immigrints from that region. The Brits should get out of the Falklands. They have bigger fish to fry. Maybe we should al store food like the Mormons. My history teacher, retired military, said Hitler should have bombed them all on the beach. Cost him the war.

    To my Conservative Friends: I was told by more than one of my conservative brothers to check out the Denzel Washington film, The Book of Eli. They said it is one of those very rare Holly-weird films nowadays that actually doesn't bludgeon conservative ideals with a dull kitchen knife. They mentioned it actually has gotten solid reviews on other conservative blogs... At first I thought - Denzel Washington portraying a conservative character in a positive light - Naaah... But the recommendation coming from solid sources, I decided to give it a try on a typically...

    In the spirit of the current thread "Best Films of all Time?", I just have to ask for the other end of the spectrum. I don't mean "Night of the Lupus", "Attack of the Killer Tomatoes", or other standard bad/forgettable films. I don't mean just box-office flops. I want to see tour-de-force bad.

  • Kit Kittredge: An American (racist) Girl

    08/02/2008 9:47:20 AM PDT · by Poopyhead · 27 replies · 213+ views
    Kit Kittredge: An American Girl (Movie) is not just a bad movie, it is blatently racist. It teaches little white girls that black people think it is ok to steal (Kit asks a black doctor point blank if it is ok to steal from rich people - he simply says "yes"). The overall theme of the movie is - steal from the rich unless they are your friends. But stealing from poor people who are your friends is bad. The movie creates nuances pertaining to when it is ok for white people to steal. However, the movie gives the overall...

    DUmmie FUnnies ^ | March 22, 2008 | Al Gore and PJ-Comix
    (In December 2000, shortly after the U.S. Supreme court ruled that Al Gore couldn't overturn the election via an endless series of pointless recounts, he finally resigned himself to being a political loser. Since Gore's sole goal almost all his life was to become president, he needed to find a way to relieve his depressing angst. As a result, Gore found an outlet: writing movie reviews. This review was a first in a series of such reviews which lasted from the end of 2000 until nearly three years later. His reviews appeared in the now defunct Laissez Faire City...
  • 3:10 to Yuma or Iraq or Brokeback?

    NewsBusters ^ | September 12, 2007 | P.J. Gladnick
    The problem with writing politicized movie reviews is that often most of what is seen depends on the viewpoint of the reviewer. Such was the case of the dueling movie reviews of "3:10 to Yuma" in the Huffington Post. Bill Robinson saw this movie as an allegory about the fighting in Iraq: As the reviews will tell you, it's an exceptional film, with gorgeous photography, stunning action and hypnotic, sublime performances. But what I am surprised I have not read, are the all-too-real parallels to Iraq. ...As the Army offers incentive bonuses to ship increasingly reluctant recruits off to the...

    Minneapolis Star Tribune ^ | 3/10/2006 | Syl Jones
    By contrast, "Crash" is a sloppy piece of workmanship, a kind of PowerPoint presentation about race that is absurd on its face. But "Crash" is also cleverly constructed to reassure white audiences that all people have racial and ethnic biases and that white America bears no special historical racial burden. This naively balanced view of race relations is the film's main conceit. However, there can be no bona fide balanced view of race relations in America, where generations of white privilege have embedded a special kind of race-based dominance into our culture and history.

    It's official. ROGER EBERT HAS DECLARED WAR ON ME (and Ann Coulter, too). Check this out. My movie reviews must be getting to movie critic, Roger Ebert. Ebert and I have had it out over his buddy, Islamic terrorist, Ibrahim Parlak (here and here). He even cited me in one of his movie reviews, in response. But now Roger Ebert has posted this on his website. It's written by movie reviewer, Jim Emerson. Even though I appreciate the exposure--not to mention the ire of all things Ebert, including people and fans--I think I should ask my lawyers if quoting...

    As you probably already know, I am not a movie-goer – only set foot in a theater maybe once or twice a year, if that -- for three reasons: (1) most of the ‘stuff’ that passes for cinematic excellence these days is no more visually or intellectually rewarding than staring at road kill, (2) I cringe at the thought of lining the pockets of the politically-activist Hollywood left, and (3) I’d rather be biking. :) With that disclaimer out of the way … Rick and I saw the just-released movie ‘The Great Raid’ last night. Knowing the shared love that...

    1. Russell Crowe Triumphs in "Cinderella Man" In "Cinderella Man" (opening Friday, June 3rd), Russell Crowe once again proves that old-fashioned masculinity does not have to be completely absent from the movies. Directed by Ron Howard, "Cinderella Man" tells the uplifting, real-life story of Jim Braddock, the Depression-era boxer who rose from poverty and the soup lines to become heavyweight champion of the world. The movie has excellent moral values, and Russell Crowe (Jim Braddock), Renee Zellweger (his wife Mae Braddock), and Paul Giamatti (his manager Joe Gould) all do a fine job portraying the 30s-era characters with conviction and...

    he bigger they come, the harder they fall. Michael Moore has been busting his rather sizable hump for two months on a campaign to get his anti-Bush polemic, "Fahrenheit 9/11," nominated for an Oscar. But when the nominees were announced yesterday, his incendiary movie was nowhere to be seen — despite the liberal bent of many Academy Awards voters, who two years ago gave Moore the Best Documentary prize for "Bowling for Columbine." "A lot of the Academy members agree with Moore's politics, so I thought they would give him a Best Picture nomination," says Hollywood Reporter online columnist Martin...

    Let's take nothing away from the original Shrek, a brazen, howlingly funny romp through fairy-tale history, with the occasional pause to mercilessly skewer the sanctimony of the Walt Disney Co. But Shrek 2 is an entirely different beast, a movie with a heart so big that no movie screen could possibly contain it. This is a sequel every bit as funny and imaginative as the original -- and twice as tender and wise. It's bottled joy, an unadulterated bliss-out and certainly one of the very best movies you'll see all year. If Shrek was about fighting for the most beautiful...

I thought I'd give you my reaction after seeing it last week. The screening was on the first night...
