Posted at 11:20am on Jun. 19, 2008 New Hollywood Film Casts Old West Cowboys as 'Imperialists'

By Warner Todd Huston

What's history for if Hollywood and our other entertainment industries can't take it and warp it to fit a current, partisan political agenda? In yet another example of Hollyweird’s foolishness, we have a new Robert Downey, Jr. vehicle that casts the American Cowboy as an "imperialist". Of course, they will dress it up and try to hide this absurd message by having an alien invasion occur during a skirmish between Cowboys and Indians in the late 1800's, forcing the two human enemies to unite to fight the aliens. This is supposed to be an "allegory." Yes, with this "pulpy mix of the sci-fi and Western genres," we have "allegory" in the fact that the space aliens are trying to invade and conquer the Earth just like the cowboys were doing to the poor, benighted natives. Just once I’d like to see a movie present Indians as real, three dimensional people instead of infantilized, victims.

Moe, I love the millibears. I'd been waiting for their return.

Which brings to mind the other reference I think of these days regarding Gore:


Posted at 12:03pm on Jun. 9, 2008 Making Fun of 'Bush-isms,' Movie Reviewer Makes Self Look Uneducated

By Warner Todd Huston

I was tooling about the Internets looking for movie reviews and came across a hilarious example of "stupid is as stupid does" that I just couldn't resist fisking here. It is on a flashy, kitchy site called ioncinema, presumably where the cool kids meet to find out about all that's new in cinema and run by bunches and bunches of 20 somethings. There we see a featured post by one Eric Lavallee (apparently the site's main honcho) that is so filled with grammatical errors and misspellings that it had me chuckling. But, the really hilarious thing is that the posting is one that attacks George W. Bush for being stupid. We can only assume that Eric the reviewer thinks he is smarter than W, but his horribly garbled writing sure doesn't help us prove his superiority.

Posted at 2:09pm on Jun. 8, 2008 Hollywood Miscasting: Danny Glover as President of the U.S.!

By Warner Todd Huston

In a movie role miscasting that would be akin to picking Michael Moore to portray George W. Bush, a new flick that is starting production soon will feature an unlikely actor as the president of the United States of America. Leftist activist, and virulent anti-American Danny Glover has been tapped to star as a U.S. president that will be confronted with a "global cataclysm" in the film "2012."

Posted at 12:05pm on Jun. 4, 2008 AP Highlights Bush Bashing 'Documentary'

By Warner Todd Huston

The AP gives us a story about some so-called "documentary" about what evil befell the poor folks of Crawford, Texas, after Governor George W. Bush bought his ranch property there.
I'll start right out with the key section that pretty much describes what we're dealing with, a quote by the director of this film. "I wanted to do a film indicting Bush for this political stagecraft, using this town as a prop." A guy that wanted to exploit the kind folks of Crawford, Texas is being presented as a wonderful fellow by the press? Say it isn’t so!

Posted at 11:42am on Jun. 2, 2008 Variety Hates Religious Theme of Movie Because...Well... it's Religious

By Warner Todd Huston

Robert Koehler of Variety is upset at Director Mark Pellington over his new film, "Henry Poole Is Here." He can't believe the audacity of a movie with religious themes actually having religious themes in it. Why it's a crime, you see. Koehler is so upset that he blurts out the memorable critique of, "not since 'The Passion of the Christ' has a mainstream Hollywood product insisted so firmly in faith"!

Posted at 10:50am on May 30, 2008 Susan makes a threat!

By LanceKates

Susan Sarandon, otherwise known as Tim Robbins' mother, has made a threat. A threat WHOLLY unlike that of many other hollywood elite in previous elections.... well, not really different, but still:

SUSAN SARANDON, who appeared in three films last year and won kudos for her TV movie "Bernard and Doris," is still not a contented soul. She says if John McCain gets elected, she will move to Italy or Canada. She adds, "It's a critical time, but I have faith in the American people."

Posted at 7:45am on May 30, 2008 Chris Matthews Holding Long Time Grudge Against Arianna Huffington?

By Warner Todd Huston

Let's take a little time off of more serious matters for some juicy gossip. Over at gawker.com there is a somewhat humorous little tale of an MSNBC photo shoot that saw TV yaker Chris Matthews of "thrill going up my leg" fame storming out after being told he might be required to share the camera frame with blog maven and born again lefty arianna Huffington. Apparently Chris is still mad at her for supposedly having hired a private investigator to stalk Tim Russert after an unflattering 1994 article written by Russert's wife, Maureen Orth.

Posted at 2:04pm on May 27, 2008 'Recount' Proves Democrats Tried To Steal The Election

By Chris Jones

I just finished watching "Recount" starring Kevin Spacey that the far-left has been promoting all week. To be honest, I was very surprised how the movie turned out. I figured it would be 90 minutes of red meat for the far-left crowd who still suffer sleepless nights thinking about how Bush "stole" the election in 2000.

Cosmetically the film turned out as I anticipated it would. Democrats were depicted as righteous crusaders who only wanted to do the right thing and make every vote count. Republicans on the other hand led by former Secretary of State James Baker were meant to be depicted as political thugs who used a combination of dirty tricks and favors to get George W. Bush elected.

Posted at 12:42pm on May 25, 2008 Hollywood Feud: Clint Eastwood vs Spike Lee

By Warner Todd Huston

In this corner, Clint Eastwood, Dirty Harry himself. And in that corner, the self-appointed guardian of America's black population, Spike Lee. It's shaping up to be a battle royale, folks, with Lee rabbit punching the aging action star while Eastwood uses his smarts and experience to deliver a knock out blow.

Posted at 11:53am on May 15, 2008 Anti-Conservative Hollyweird Update -- BDS and Globaloney Galore

By Warner Todd Huston

They make anti-American films that bomb at the box office and lose money. Then they make more films that make fun of the conservative base of the country, they lose more money. They make films that attack, belittle and infantalize our men and women at arms -- all as we are in a war, adding insult to injury -- and they lose still more money. So what do they do? They make yet more films like these previous lemons. Any guesses what will happen next? That's right, box office poison.

Posted at 3:18pm on May 9, 2008 MoveOnBostonLegal.org

By GaryWiram

“Legal Dramedy”, is how Wikipedia defines the format of the TV series Boston Legal. Living TV describes the show as a “… critically acclaimed and Emmy Award-winning quirky legal drama …” That is a good summary of why I first became enamored with this brilliantly entertaining program. Unfortunately, it has become increasingly common to hear the production characterized as “shamelessly liberal”. With that, Boston Legal’s brilliance and entertainment value has continued to decline and its charm is rapidly fading for me.

Posted at 5:55pm on May 6, 2008 So tell me, Al, what caused all those *other* storms in Earth's history?

Once you get past the self-loathing of knowing that you built your empire on ambulance chasing and falsehoods, Gore's position isn't such a bad place to be in

By Jeff Emanuel

Is there a better example of a modern ambulance chaser-writ-large than former Veep and Nobel Prize winner Albert Gore? It's quite a testament to the man's less-than-obvious flair for the dramatic and hyperbolic that he has been able to far surpass the "cottage industry" stage and create an actual worldwide movement out of his alarmist, unprovable warnings and admonitions about the invisible, silent threat that is ManBearPig Anthropogenic Global Warming (AGW).

It's so easy, too. All Gore has to do is wait for any day that feels a little warm or a little cool, or a day when the sun shines or is obscured by clouds, or when there is hail or sleet, and say that it was caused by his personal bugaboo, AGW. His *real* money is made, though, when a storm comes.

That's right, a *storm.* Just like Earth has had for, oh, the entirety of its existence. Remember thunderstorms, tornadoes, cyclones? Thought so -- because they happened when you were growing up, just like they did when your parents were growing up, just like they did in the days before the internal combustion engine (called the "greatest threat facing our planet" by Gore in his 1980 book Earth in the Balance).

Read on.
