    Johnny Damon and Donald Trump. Screenshot/YouTube On the eve of the Chicago Cubs' attempt to end a 108-year World Series drought, a hero from the most legendary drought-busting Major League Baseball team took a seat behind Donald Trump at a Florida rally. Johnny Damon, a center fielder from the 2004 Boston Red Sox World Series championship team, waved a red "Make America Great Again" sign and cheered on the Republican nominee during the Wednesday rally in Orlando. Trump even gave him a shout out, calling him the "ultimate champion and winner" and "the great Johnny Damon." For a brief moment...

    Matt Damon is selling his Miami Beach property for $18.9 million. Take a look at 'Maravilla', courtesy of The Jills from Coldwell Banker. 12,705-square-foot home in Miami Beach, replete with pools, palms, and plenty of privacy. According to the Wall Street Journal, the actor created the property by combining two parcels he bought in 2005, paying about $14.5 million for both. The home is located on the same glitzy street where Jennifer Lopez, Alex Rodriguez, and Calvin Klein are said to have lived.
  • “Elysium” is implausible, because it’s based on a medical device manufacturer with no salespeople

    Dan from Squirrel Hill's Blog Movie review: “Elysium” is implausible, because it’s based on a medical device manufacturer that does not employ any salespeople Elysium has too many loud, noisy action scenes, and not enough calm, quiet, reflective scenes of thoughtful contemplation. It didn’t have any lines of dialogue that I can see myself wanting to quote in the future. None of the characters were particularly interesting. And if I was a child, I couldn’t see myself wanting to buy any of the action figures that might be based on this movie.The machine that instantly cures cancer seems perfectly plausible. However,...

    After reading some positive FR reviews I decided to give the movie a try. Yes, the movie is blatantly political. The plot revolves around a mishmash of liberal lunacy about healthcare and immigration. But the worst thing I can say is the movie stinks. Damon's acting is weak. The plot has huge holes in it. The characters are one dimensional. The big fight scene at the end looks like a bad imitation of a WWE fight. Worst of all, the futuristic scenario is not written in a way that has any logic of its own. Sure, I could believe that...

Jodie Foster was really good as the evil b*&%h that runs the space station habitat. For reasons never explained she speaks French, and has some odd kind of French accent.

    One smart-as-a-whip sci-fi thriller does not a summer make, but "Elysium" is good enough to suggest that the cyborgs of Hollywood have not, in fact, risen up and taken over. Starring Matt Damon in extra muscles and a shaven skull, it contains enough hardware for all the Home Depots of the future, and an atmosphere of grimy oppression one can almost taste.... The year is 2154. A dusty, rusted, wasted Earth has become the despoiled home of the have-nots; the haves are in residence aboard a wagon-wheel-shaped space station named for the Elysian Fields of the ancients Greeks, the inside...

    The Hollywood Reporter's Todd McCarthy shouldn't be surprised that director Neil Blokamp's "latest politically tinged sci-fi feature" falls apart during the third act. So did Blokamp's first politically tinged sci-fi feature, the overrated but promising "District 9." According to McCarthy's astute review, though, "Elysium" goes a step further into the arena of wild left-wing, Hollywood hypocrisy. Here is how McCarthy describes the world and plot of what is likely another box-office bomb from star Matt Damon: Blomkamp sets the dystopian juices flowing with images of future sprawling slums and urban ruin that one might initially take to be Mexico City...

    Fracking fans have a new target: Matt Damon. “Promised Land,” the new Gus Van Sant film about the controversial technique that acquires natural gas through drilling and pressurized fluid, stars and was written by Damon and costar John Krasinski, opens nationally Friday. Phelim McAleer is launching a one-man campaign to call Damon out about the film. McAleer directed the documentary FrackNation, along with his wife Ann McElhinney, and the film paints a more sympathetic portrayal of fracking and aims to dispel some of the misinformation that McAleer and McElhinney believe have dominated the debate over the procedure’s environmental and health...

We’ve been fracking for 60 years in this country and if fracking destroyed farmland we would know about it. We don’t know that. But what we do know is that the financing of Damon’s anti-fracking propaganda film comes from the United Arab Emirates. As in, an Arab OPEC nation.

Now we learn that Bain, under Romney’s “supervision”, purchased and ran the Damon Corporation, who pled guilty to Federal conspiracy charges as a result of tens of millions of dollars in systemic Medicare fraud committed under Romney’s and Bain’s control.

    Some rich Americans will not rest until Washington boosts their taxes. Berkshire Hathaway CEO Warren Buffett, Earth's second-wealthiest inhabitant, complains that last year he paid $6,938,744 in federal income taxes, just 17.4 percent of his taxable income. Twenty of his staffers earned much less than he did, but "their tax burdens ranged from 33 percent to 41 percent," Buffet recently wrote ("Please Tax Me. I Can Take It," August 16). Rather than work to cut his colleagues' taxes, the $50 Billion Man wants Uncle Sam to hike his liability. < snip > Assistant House Democratic Leader James Clyburn of South...

    1) U.S. military service disproportionately attracts enlisted personnel and officerswho do not come from disadvantaged backgrounds. Previous Heritage Foundation research demonstrated that the quality of enlisted troops has increased since the start of the Iraq war. This report demonstrates that the same is true of the officer corps. 2) Members of the all-volunteer military are significantly more likely to come from high-income neighborhoods than from low-income neighborhoods. Only 11 percent of enlisted recruits in 2007 came from the poorest one-fifth (quintile) of neighborhoods, while 25 percent came from the wealthiest quintile. These trends are even more pronounced in the Army...

The civil complaint alleges that the money won by said Hollywood elite was actually money stolen by a hedge-fund manager from his clients to pay off his enormous gambling debts. According to the report, Toby “Spider-Man” Maguire was the big winner making $1,000,000 a month in winnings. Interesting.

    Actor Matt Damon campaigned for Barack Obama in 2008, but the Academy Award-winning screen writer says the president has gone off script and misread his mandate. Damon’s comments are an indicator that Obama is losing the support of the Hollywood elite who form a key Democratic constituency. During a taping of Piers Morgan’s CNN program to be aired tonight, when Morgan asked Damon whether he is happy with the way Obama is running the country, Damon replied with a terse, “No.” “I really think he misinterpreted his mandate,” Damon said. “A friend of mind said to me the other day,...

But, even in Obama’s Washington, some of the old status symbols still matter. Take, for instance, the periodic ritual of the state dinner. In advance of such affairs, the most recent of which occurred in May, entrails-readers up and down the Amtrak corridor still scrutinize the guest lists. Invariably, they find hints about who the White House is courting...

    NO one doubts that “Green Zone” comes with what Adam Fogelson, the chairman of Universal Pictures, calls an action movie “pedigree.” The film, which opens across the country on March 12, stars Matt Damon and reunites him with Paul Greengrass, the director who brought a propulsive visual style to “The Bourne Supremacy” and “The Bourne Ultimatum.” And television ads and trailers promise plenty of suspense, firepower and, of course, fighting in close quarters. But while “Green Zone” looks and moves much like a Bourne sequel, it also comes with a significant strike against it as a commercial proposition: It’s a...

That involves a lot of personal responsibility," Damon told Tarts at last week’s Los Angeles premiere. "South Africa had the greatest political leader in the world in our lifetime.

    Blogs for John McCain ^ | September 10, 2008 | brianinmo
    If you needed another reason to vote for McCain / Palin, actor and Hollywood elitist Matt Damon gives it to you (see video) in comments he made about Gov. Sarah Palin. Damon, it turns out, is "terrified" by Palin, as I'm sure many other Hollywood types are. After all - they have invested too much in The Messiah, assuming he would cakewalk to victory on November 4. Now that it appears he has a fight on his hands, they are "terrified" by a former "small town" mayor, hockey mom and Governor of Alaska. His condescension is palpable in the video,...

    WASHINGTON, Dec. 15 (UPI) -- In an interview in Washington, actor Matt Damon suggested that President George W. Bush's daughters "maybe" should join the military. Damon and actor Robert De Niro were guests on the MSNBC cable show, "Hardball with Chris Matthews," promoting their upcoming movie, "The Good Shepherd." Directed by De Niro, the film is an account of the early history of the CIA. During the interview, scheduled to air Monday, Damon talked about the fairness of fighting the war in Iraq with a volunteer Army. "I don't think that it's fair as I said before, that it seems...

    BOSTON (Reuters) - A U.S. war veteran who lost both arms in Iraq has sued Oscar-winning director Michael Moore for $85 million, saying television clips were used without his permission in the anti-war documentary "Fahrenheit 9/11" and gave a false impression that he opposed the war. Sgt. Peter Damon, 33, a supporter of President George W. Bush and the Iraq war, claims Moore misused the footage to portray him "in a false light" and as "disagreeing with the president about the war effort and as disagreeing with the war effort itself." "It was kind of almost like the enemy was...

    EXCLUSIVE A double-amputee Iraq-war vet is suing Michael Moore for $85 million, claiming the portly peacenik recycled an old interview and used it out of context to make him appear anti-war in "Fahrenheit 9/11." Sgt. Peter Damon, 33, who strongly supports America's invasion of Iraq, said he never agreed to be in the 2004 movie, which trashes President Bush. In the 2003 interview, which he did at Walter Reed Army Hospital for NBC News, he discussed only a new painkiller the military was using on wounded vets. "They took the clip because it was a gut-wrenching scene," Damon said yesterday....

    BAGHDAD, Iraq (CNN) -- It actually took me a while to put all the pieces together -- that I know these guys, the U.S. Marines at the heart of the alleged massacre of Iraqi civilians in Haditha. I don't know why it didn't register with me until now. It was only after scrolling through the tapes that we shot in Haditha last fall, and I found footage of some of the officers that had been relieved of their command, that it hit me. I know the Marines that were operating in western al Anbar, from Husayba all the way to...

    <p>Robert Redford says he has made plenty of sacrifices — including occasionally stalling his film career — to ensure that the Sundance Film Festival would survive and thrive. But, he adds, "it was all worth it."</p> <p>The 68-year-old actor, filmmaker and environmental activist said his 45-year show-business career has suffered a bit here and there, but these days he has enough trust in the festival's leadership that he can relax his grasp on the event and begin to, in his words, "breathe again."</p>
