Easy... watching movies puts my wife "in the mood"... It's a sacrifice I make, for the greater good! :)

There was a South Park episode about Broadway musicals that did the same thing.

Double whammy to Ben Affleck.

First, not even nominated for Best Director.

Yet, Editing wins...

Hmmm, Academy hints for pretty boy to get back in line.

Mocking Hollywood is a (well-deserved) FR pastime.

Just to clarify. :D

Definitely one of the better Bond themes, it was reminiscent of the 60s Bond themes.

No. It’s support. And as long as they are supported they will continue to spew socialism and communism. McCarthy was right. So was John Wayne. Propaganda in mink and glitter is still propaganda.

I enjoy going to the movies but I'm not a big fan of the self-congratulatory class. If you think about it, all these actors do is "act" for a few seconds, 30 seconds, or sometimes a minute or so. If they screw it up they do it again until the director is satisfied. It does take talent to put together a well-made film, but way beyond what an actor does on his own. I roll my eyes when Hollywood talks about a film being "important". I read today on a rock website a story about Don felder, ex of The Eagles. The writer had made reference to him and Joe Walsh crafting the guitar solo at the end of Hotel California. I changed sites when the author mentioned how "important" that guitar solo was to rocknroll. Please.

anyway, I'm not trying to throw cold water on the oscars just that I think many free republicans have a similar attitude

This has been a remarkably politics-free Oscars. It has been excellent so far in that regard. I’m struck by the Bond movie tunes done by the orignal artists. The Shirley Bassey ‘Goldfinger’ blew us away here.

Hell yeah
These threads always bring out who have no inkling of culture war

They are either too young too stupid or don’t care anyway

That said I do watch TV and movies myself

Knowing full well that likely I have nothing in common with anyone involved in that industry barring precious few exceptions

It’s just how it is

It’s been this way since the 60’s

The old immigrants mostly from Eastern Europe and yes mostly Jewish.... no lectures please.. actually loved America.. they made movies that celebrated our traditional values

And they were very grateful to be here

And our culture benefited from their efforts

Now it is all changed

It is nearly entirely progressive propaganda

Homo sexuality race baiting..as in django unchained

There are few exceptions

David Mamet... I think the Coen Brothers a pretty fair

Most movies that Bruce Willis or Mel Gibson are involved in... or Tom Selleck

Kurt Russell

All those guys are getting old

Now it is just progressive hipsters

Post anything you watch you have to explain it to your children

What is accurate and what is propaganda regardless

Younger posters here simply don’t know any different

It’s not their fault but it just gets worse year after year old folks like me can’t help but see through all of it

Anyhow I did enjoy Skyfall and will miss Judi

My wife and I entertain ourselves with. Dowton abby and Housewives garbage

I miss westerns

Yes. And fought the commies in Hollywood. In 1944 he helped found the Motion Picture Alliance for the Preservation of American Ideals, a right-wing political organization, later becoming its President.

Most of Hollyweird is horrible. They are Commies.

At any rate I only told you my opinion and why some of us think it's strange that any conservative would support Commies in any way.

Hope you enjoy the rest of the "show"

She’s a cutie that’s for sure

I’ll always see her half naked in the motel room with the Mexican gang bangers

I guess that was her gritty effort

What was that movie... with that Phillips girl

I’m knew Jennifer Lawrence was special when I first saw bones that was incredible small movie

There are areas of Middle Tennessee just like that

My poor wife deals with that particular kind of white trash everyday

Some of the most vile people you could ever encounter

The emcee introduced two Oscar presenters who played in roles, one a vampire and I missed the other, and said “what the Christian Right says is wrong w/ Hollywood.” Mild applause.
