    Just when you thought it had safely sunk below the waters of history, James Cameron's Titanic is due to be salvaged. Flushed with the success of Avatar, the director plans to raise his Oscar-laden 1997 blockbuster and launch it afresh. "We're looking at spring of 2012 for the release, which is the 100th anniversary of the sailing of the ship," Cameron told USA Today. It remains to be seen whether the re-issued Titanic will regain the crown it lost to Avatar. But the odds are not in its favour. Not content with re-releasing Titanic, Cameron is considering re-releasing Avatar as...
  • Tom Hanks, Hollywood, and History (Says War on Terror has the same flaws as War against Japan)

    American Thinker ^ | 03/17/2010 | Bruce Walker
    Tom Hanks has said that our war on Islamic terrorism has the same flaws as he perceives our Pacific War against Japan had seventy years ago. In both conflicts, some Americans employed crude racial stereotypes of our enemies, feared the strange gods they worshiped, and sought to annihilate them. Hanks' comments reveal, for those of us who still needed evidence, the appalling ignorance of Hollywood and its performers. The propaganda of virtually all nations involved in the Second World War, America included, was exaggerated and intense. This did not reflect a special bias against the Japanese: Hollywood often portrayed the...

    when the dems screwed Hillary, they screwed america out of health care and out of jobs. I knew it. I told you so.

    Although I am used to Hollywood stars making the most outrageous, anti-American and downright stupid statements, I’ve got to admit that I was taken aback by this post over at Hot Air, nonetheless. Its subject: Tom Hanks said recently that America wanted to ”annihilate the Japanese because they were different.” Yes, seriously: He is pleased that The Pacific has fulfilled an obligation to our World War II vets. He doesn’t see the series as simply eye-opening history. He hopes it offers Americans a chance to ponder the sacrifices of our current soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan. “From the outset, we...

In the book trilogy, set in a series of parallel worlds, heroine Lyra fights the Magisterium, an evil organisation some have interpreted as being based on the Catholic Church.

    Tom Hanks, who plays the character Robert Langdon in the controversial new film Angels & Demons, has described the plot as “playing fast and loose with the truth”. The plot of the film sees a secret society known as the Illuminati try to destroy the Vatican in order to take revenge for a massacre against its members by the Catholic Church. The film is the prequel to The Da Vinci Code, which claimed that the Church covered up Jesus’ secret marriage to Mary Magdalene. Leaders within the Catholic Church have already condemned the film as offensive to Catholics. The Catholic...

    Hollywood, needing to cut costs in lean times, is starting to say no to its stars. For years, top movie stars often landed deals paying them a percentage -- sometimes as much as 20% -- of a studio's take of box-office revenues from the first dollar the movie makes, even if it turned out to be a flop that cost the studio millions. As a result, the biggest celebrities broke the $20 million mark. Eddie Murphy got that kind of payday for the flop "Meet Dave," which cost Twentieth Century Fox about $70 million and took in only $11.8 million...

Meritocracy insures a system where those who can do, do. Systems of entitlement insure that those who have no useful skills or abilities tell others what to do, or collect money from them.

    The Media Mob has learned that a team of Hollywood insiders is currently working on a screen adaptation of Truth And Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power—the 2005 book by former CBS News producer Mary Mapes, in which she defends the 60 Minutes II story by Dan Rather about President George W. Bush's time in the Texas Air National Guard, which ran on CBS in September 2004 and eventually led to her ouster from the network. Who would want to turn "Rathergate" into a feature-length film? According to sources familiar with the situation, Producer Mikkel Bondesen,...

    George Lucas has created legendary film heroes like Luke Skywalker and Indiana Jones, but the US director says that in real life, his hero is Barack Obama. Lucas was in Japan on Wednesday to promote his latest film, "Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull," as Obama clinched the Democratic Party's nomination for president. "We have a hero in the making back in the United States today because we have a new candidate for president of the United States, Barack Obama," Lucas said when asked who his childhood heroes were. Obama, "for all of us that have dreams...

    My grandfather was a college football star who even played for the NFL champs back in 1928, so I was looking forward to seeing George Clooney’s new 1920s football movie, Leatherheads, this weekend. That’s before I found out how Clooney, like many lefties in Hollywood and the news media, had treated the late Charlton Heston. Clooney’s offense took place a few years back. According to Life Site News, “For his conservative stands, however, Heston was attacked and reviled by his Hollywood colleagues. In 2003 actor and leftist political activist George Clooney joked about Heston’s illness [Alzheimer’s disease], and, after Heston...

    Ever since this year's Oscar season got under way in January, the Hollywood writers strike has loomed fatefully above it: first threatening to cancel Oscar night entirely, then stoking much expectation that the last-minute settlement would result in an evening either grander or duller than usual.

    Right after that, a documentary against the Iraq war and GITMO are announced in a second award category. Is this outrageous, or is it me? Having the military introduce a film on same sex issues given the don't ask don't tell policy, and then have it followed by anti Iraq war, anti WOT films is political and using the troops as pawns IMHO. Quote from the winner: Let's hope we move this country away from the dark side. . .

    Well, I was browsing around Hastings a few minutes ago and what do I see? A Movie Maker magazine with an article called "Hollywood Invades Iraq". Of course, Hollywood and Iraq don't make a good mix, so I investigated...and it seems the liberals are wasting no time in generating propaganda for the 2008 election. First, we've got "Against All Enemies" which is apparently going to talk about how Bush missed warnings of 9/11 and then botched the War on Terror (I guess no one told the producers about how the planning for 9/11 started when Clinton was in office and...

    NEW YORK - Hollywood director Brian De Palma has lashed out at what he calls the censorship of his new film about Iraq and the chilling effect of corporate America on the war. De Palma's film, "Redacted," is based on the true story of a group of U.S. soldiers who raped and killed a 14-year-old Iraqi girl and murdered members of her family. It has stunned audiences for its shocking images and rattled American conservative commentators before its U.S. opening next month. But De Palma says he is upset that the documentary-style drama has been censored. The film's distributor, Magnolia...

    Encouraged by widespread opposition to the conflict in Iraq, Hollywood film-makers are preparing to unleash an unprecedented wave of war movies on cinema-goers. In a notable break with the past -- where anti-war films were released several years after the conflict in question -- a whole new genre has been created even while US troops remain on the front lines of the "War on Terror." The release in the United States next month of "In the Valley of Elah", a gritty drama from Oscar-winning director Paul Haggis about the murder of an Iraq war veteran, signals the start of the...

    by Mark Finkelstein March 3, 2006 What got into Good Morning America today? Each of the network shows did their mandatory pre-Oscar bit this morning. But while Today was running a bland piece on the freebies that celebrities in attendance get in gift bags, GMA's segment had a most unexpected angle, asking whether Hollywood has become too political - read 'liberal.' Host Charlie Gibson framed it this way: "Now we turn to the politics of the Oscars. We've talked a lot about the culture wars in America, the blue state/red state divide, the clash between more traditional moral values and...
