    Elijah Cummings has had enough of the Benghazi committee! On Oct. 22, the U.S. Representative accused the Republican-led investigation into the 2012 attacks of being a fraud and that the committee’s only concerned with ruining Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign! [....] Do you agree with Rep. Elijah Cummings, HollywoodLifers? Do you think the Benghazi committee is a sham meant to hurt Hillary?

    Anyone using file-sharing service BitTorrent to download the latest film or music release is likely to be monitored, UK-based researchers suggest. A Birmingham University study indicates that an illegal file-sharer downloading popular content would be logged by a monitoring firm within three hours. The team said it was "surprised" by the scale of the monitoring. Copyright holders could use the data to crack down on illegal downloads. The three-year research was carried out by a team of computer scientists who developed software that acted like a BitTorrent file-sharing client and logged all the connections made to it. BitTorrent is a...

    Fox Business News Calls Muppets Communist; Debate Goes Viral A segment on the network was highlighted by Media Matters, reigniting a conversation about whether or not there are political messages in children's movies. If you Googled news about “Muppets” on Monday you were treated to hundreds of news stories and blog items debating whether Disney’s lovable creatures were Communists or not. You can thank Fox Business News and Media Matters for that. Eric Bolling of Follow the Money set the stage on Friday when he hosted a 7-minute segment that argued that The Muppets film – featuring bad-guy oilman Tex...
  • Top Ten Most Overrated Actors/Actresses of All Time

    It’s been almost two years since I posted at Big Hollywood regarding the Top 10 Most Overrated Directors of All Time. I’ve had a chance to reflect and think about the crimes I committed in that post. And, to paraphrase Mr. Eko from the greatest TV show of all time, “Lost,” I ask no forgiveness because I have committed no sin … except leaving Spike Lee and Tim Burton off the list, that is. So, because you all enjoyed that list so much, and because I apparently have a death wish, it’s time for another: The Top 10 Most Overrated...
  • Sarah Palin ‘is’ America!

    06/26/2011 7:23:18 PM PDT · by Ira_Louvin · 8 replies
    Barack Obama’s reelection is of primary importance to the Hollywood Left , therefore things of major Leftist import are on a bit of a hold. Firey visionaries of The Progressive New World Order are scheduled for casting their Hollywood scripts post-election lest the unthinkable happen and Sarah Palin become the 45th President of the United States. It is actually an infuriating time for Hollywood because of the “Wait” and “The Hold”. Since massive amounts of money are involved, the second stage of the Obama Nation really can’t explode until The Man is back in office. Educating Americans can be so...

    By some tortured, objective filmmaking standard it might be possible to make the case that Quantum of Solace isn’t the worst James Bond film of all time, but I defy anyone to argue that it isn’t the least satisfying. After all, a bad James Bond film is still a James Bond film. There is that going for it. Invisible cars and Grace Jones have done no small amount of damage but in the smoking, campy wreckage there still lies a James Bond film. Unfortunately, in the smoking, plodding wreckage of Quantum of Solace that scrap of comfort is nowhere to...

    Has “Burn Notice” gotten new writers? They used to have some very insightful comments about guns and crime (e.g., see the episode in season 2 entitled “Lesser Evil”). Yet, now one needs a scorecard to keep tracks of all the errors in some of the shows. Take some of the errors in the most recent show, “Partners in Crime,” posted on Hulu. At 10:10 into the episode, Sam Axe (Bruce Campbell) explains to Michael Weston (Jeffrey Donovan) that an individual who they are checking up on in Florida, “Owns a gun, but it is registered.” The only problem is that...

    Hollywood celebutards have long embraced the most brutal of communist dictators from their lofty Malibu perches. Young people have no frame of reference with which to understand socialism and communism. Obama’s youth cult didn’t live through the cold war. They don’t know about Radio Free Europe, which provided precious information to the victims of communism living behind what was then known as the iron curtain that divided Europe into two areas, making much of Eastern Europe a prison. Armed guards were posted at the borders, and many desperate citizens were killed attempting to flee from a life of oppression.

    NBC’s “Law and Order” is in its 20th season. The economy is weak, so they have devolved to converting White House talking points into weekly shows. Last week, “Doped” was a farcical equivalent of “Damien Thorn meets Karen Silkwood.” Pharmaceutical companies and Doctors are worse than drug cartels. The killers in the previous week’s episode on such cartels were more sympathetic than the health professionals.

    Mr. Jerrol LeBaron of InkTip, the most successful spec script sales business in Hollywood, has now launched his Honor In Office campaign and website in an attempt to reform the way California legislators do business. The first goal of Mr. LeBaron’s Honor In Office campaign is to place the Honor In Office Act on the California ballot. If passed, the Honor In Office Act would compel California state reps to legally affirm that they have read a bill in full before voting to pass it, just as every attorney in America closing any kind of legal contract is paid to...

Yet that is exactly what Mr. LeBaron has done by launching his Honor In Office website and campaign, to reform the way California legislators do the People’s business and regardless of political affiliation. It is the corruption of the legislative process which Mr. LeBaron sees as the real problem, not only in Sacramento but across the US.

I can now say with even greater certainty that I was absolutely correct in that assertion. The reason I felt that way initially, was that after several days of the news media cherry picking snippets from my interview with her in an out of context way that appeared designed to make Palin seem whiny and weak (the exact opposite of what she actually was during the...

It occurred to me last night that she might never leave her seat. I have come to believe that Helen has been in that seat since sometime in the Carter administration.

    In classical Athens, hubris was a crime and considered the greatest sin in Greek society. In American society it is simply defined as an arrogant self-confidence, an overweening excessive pride. As most Americans know by now, you’re most likely to see it displayed on Wall Street, in Hollywood, or in the nation’s capitol where Wall Street and Hollywood collided with a vengeance during the most recent election. As we’ve now seen with “the stimuli,” including the current bill in Washington, there are a great many people in D.C. who want all our money and that of future generations to use...

How can we know this for sure? For those caring to look, there are three primary sources—all prepared by Frost or one of his researchers. First, a DVD exists of the actual broadcasts, issued in Great Britain with an afterword by Sir David Frost. While readily available, apparently none of the movie's reviewers...

    As someone who did not vote for President Obama, I don’t want to be lumped in with the haters, so here is a list of examples showing just how much I support our President: 1. I support him as much as Code Pink supports our troops. 2. I support him as much as N.O.W. supports Ayaan Hirsi Ali. 3. I support him as much as the Hollywood community supported Theo Van Gogh. 4. I support him as much as Nancy Pelosi supports the Catholic Church’s teachings on life. 5. I support him as much as Al Gore supports cutting...

    Tomorrow’s Inauguration and Comediansby Rodney Lee Conover Talk show writers and hosts, including “The Tonight Show with Jay Leno” and “The Daily Show with Jon Stewart,” have been lamenting how they would love to bust President-elect Barack Obama’s chops more, but he just doesn’t do anything to make fun of. No matter what he says at the coronation tomorrow, there’s no material here… move along. Let’s be honest. #1: They love Barack Obama. #2: He’s African-American. That’s the bottom line and everybody knows it. The facts are, Barack Obama is a gaffe machine and has done more flip-flopping in the...

    Here’s my list to of the ten best movies I screened in 2008. I have to admit that I did not see one contemporary release that comes close to the quality and passion of these older films. And keep in mind that most of these classic movies were produced on modest budgets, never intended as studio blockbusters. These ten products of Hollywood’s golden age are what Hollywood used to do best: solid, unpretentious entertainment. 10. The Man From Down Under, (1943) starring Charles Laughton and Donna Reed.

    Once upon a time, in what used to be a far away land called Hollywood (but is now a state of mind and everywhere), a young actor was handed a script and asked to bring to life a character called Starbuck. I am that actor. The script was called “Battlestar Galactica.” Fortunately, I was young, my imagination fertile and adrenal glands strong, because bringing Starbuck to life was over the dead imaginations of a lot of Network Executives... Witness the “re-imagined” “Battlestar Galactica,” bleak, miserable, despairing, angry and confused. Which is to say, it reflects in microcosm the complete change...
