In the gulag, Conservatives will be shown all of the award winning Ed Asner entertainment products, plus, are you ready for this?, retransmissions of all the Oscar ceremonies they so religiously watched and defended when still walking around free!

If you have cable television, you are backing the paychecks of Bill Maher and Chris Matthews...that’s just a FACT

That's NOT fact. Maher is on HBO.... which is a subscription service. I cancelled my subscription when they hired Bill Maher, and I wrote them a letter letting them know why.

I'm actually quite proud of the fact that, last year, I signed up for HBO's FREE monthly trial.. used that time to watch all of the Game of Thrones shows, then cancelled... I got to see the programming I WANTED, without sending them ANY money! :-)

As for Chrissy? Well, yes... I suppose my cable co does pay SOME money to MSNBC. But, I'm not giving up ALL of my cable TV just because that ass-clown is on one of the 999 channels. I don't watch him.

I can't control everything.. none of us can. None of us SHOULD. And, I'm not sure why you seem to want to?

Jane is not only a poor American... she is a TRAITOR American... big difference from all the other “poor Americans” out there. Too bad you don’t recognize that.

what makes you think I do not know that antceecee? I don't intend to spar with you and all the other perfect participants here. Suffice it to say most of us who enjoy cinema do not appreciate you and your buddies crashing Tim's thread with your condescending attitude and holier than though remarks.

In the gulag you’ll be allowed to watch to your heart’s content all of the award ceremonies, the Oscars, Emmys, Grammys, Country Music (there are two of those each year, and tapes from all previous years will be available in the gulag library!) Some people cannot get enough of Mozart’s 41st Symphony, listening to it over and over again. If the award ceremonies are so great, as you assure us, why not watch them over and over again.

Regarding HBO...good for you. As for your cable? Appreciate your honesty...you don’t want to give up your cable TV...that’s your choice. Can’t control everything? I agree. My taxes pay for abortions. But I can deny money to the leftist entertainment industry, and I choose to do so. If people choose to criticize me for that; fine by me...that is their right...and vice-versa.

You really did choose an appropriate screen name. :-)

I don't choose to criticize you for that... it's your right. If it works for you? Terrific! I just don't agree that the best way to deal with Leftists is, to completely withdraw from them and pretend they don't exist.

I engage.. and try to convince them of the error in their way of thinking.

I LOVE it when a POS movie like the "Promised Land" flat out BOMBS at the box office, costing Matt Damon a CHUNK of money! :-) And, I LOVE it when a low budget film like Soul Surfer makes a mint. :-P

I love Movies... I like music. No doubt, MOST of the people who excel at making both of these are liberals. It's a fact of biology, I think. But, there are also a bunch of people in Hollywood who want to make MONEY.. and, they know... the best way to do that is, make movies people LIKE.

They'll edit like crazy to stay away from an "R" rating... artistic license be damned... because, they want the AUDIENCE.

If they do it right, I'm not too proud to be one of the ones rewarding them for it.

Ignoring a huge part of American culture doesn’t help anything. It’s no different from not reading.

All kidding aside, though, I couldn’t watch last nights historic extravaganza having had to change the air in my bicycle’s tires, long overdue, but perhaps you can tell us who won the Supporting Make-Up Artist to Supporting Male Actor Award?

You get more excercise if you leave the air out. ;-)

But, it's about as much FUN as life w/o movies...

The FReepathon team works long hours, there's 5 of us with some alternates. We volunteer and do it for the love of Conservative values. It's hard to see the site used to discuss and support a group of people who hate America and blacklist Republicans and Conservatives in Hollywood.

Does this mean that Hollywood film discussions are taboo for some, but not all forum participants? Please clarify so that the rest of us can avoid your nasty nazi comments. TIA!

Oh, good grief... it does NO SUCH THING. It's a bunch of hand-wringing drivel.... It's OVER, we should all just pack up and move to our own island.

It was JUST 2 years ago, 2010, when conservative RULED the elections... We lost to Obozo by a couple of % points running a guy that most of us hated. ALL WE HAVE TO DO is NOMINATE a true conservative, who can ARTICULATE, unashamedly, our philosophy. Young people will FLOCK to the message.. if we can just keep the "harsher" among us from driving them away.

Oh... by the way.. as for all those Republicans who stayed home? Mittens got MORE total votes than McCain.... MORE, not less. The 4 million protest votes is a myth. We got beat by fraud, and by better ground game (code word for, FRAUD) in a handful of key states.

After two more years of ObamaCare kicking in, the electorate will be loving our message in 2014.

I didn't realize you and your cronies owned this thread? I noted your efforts to humanize the mistakes of Ms. Fonda by comparing her to other so called "poor Americans" - your choice of words!

Fact is what Jane Fonda did during the Vietnam war, a war in which many of us lost friends and family and watched others we love come back to us hollow shells of their former selves - what she did was treason. She was never held to account for it and her actions in no way compare to other "poor Americans" you mention in your comment. I have no problem with loving movies or the Oscars, I have a problem with coloring Ms. Fonda with the gentler description of being a poor American as opposed to being the traitor she actually is!

Thank you for the scoop that Lincoln did not contain much violence. Now I can watch it feeling more at ease.

Thanks for review of Lincoln. War scenes don’t bother me but one on one physical violence does. Everyone is saying Lincoln isn’t too violent so I think I can sit thru it.

I’ll get a DVD from the library of some of these violent films and then hit the Forward button on the nasty scenes.
