    Has Dave Eggers written a parable of our time, an eviscerating takedown of Silicon Valley and its privacy-invading technology companies? Or has he missed his target, producing a sanctimonious screed that fails to humanize its characters and understand its subject? Book critics are divided over the quality of Mr. Eggers’s highly anticipated novel “The Circle,” which went on sale Tuesday. But in Silicon Valley and beyond, the book’s theme promises to spark an even bigger debate over the 21st-century hyperconnected world that Mr. Eggers describes. Set in an “undefined future time,” Mr. Eggers’s novel tells the story of Mae Holland,...

    ‘The Circle’: Tom Hanks Takes a Swing at Liberal Groupthink at Apple and Google Tom Hanks produced the movie The Circle that takes a look at the liberal groupthink of a large Silicon Valley technology company. In any major liberal organization, such as at Apple or Google, the liberal ideology becomes groupthink: Think like they do or be banished. The movie, The Circle, portrays Emma Watson as a new employee who is indoctrinated into the groupthink of a large fictitious company called The Circle. The company has similar appearances as a cross between Apple and Google. Tom Hanks plays the...
  • Michael Moore says the Democrats should run a popular celebrity against Donald Trump in 2020

    Michael Moore went on the View and threw around the names of celebrities who he believes could beat Donald Trump in the next presidential election. Moore, who was introduced by Joy Behar as her 'favorite agitator,' shared his ideas on why a celebrity could win the White House for the Democratic party, declaring, 'We need to run a beloved American in 2020.' 'If we ran Al Franken, ran Tom Hanks — who wouldn't vote for Tom Hanks for president of the United States? C'mon! Or Oprah!' Moore exclaimed. Hanks previously joked about running alongside Dwayne 'The Rock' Johnson during an...
  • The Circle: Most conservative movie of 2017

    Make no mistake: “The Circle” is not a great movie by any means. However, it is a movie I would highly recommend that every American see. Although we’re not even halfway through 2017, it’s hard to believe Hollywood will release a more conservative movie this year. I have not seen a contemporary film that does a better job of deconstructing the fake utopian schemes of progressivism. I only doubt whether that was the movie’s actual purpose … or the filmmakers couldn’t help but subconsciously go there, given the subject matter. Just look at the movie’s main characters. The heroine, Mae...

    The Oscar-winning actor has been tight-lipped about the luxurious French Polynesian yacht cruise he went on with TV host Winfrey, rock legend Bruce Springsteen and the former U.S. President and First Lady, earlier this month (Apr17). But during an appearance on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on Friday (28Apr17), Hanks divulged that the trip was better than most people could ever imagine. "That made the news, it was really interesting. Both Oprah and I were really p***ed off," the 60-year-old joked. "Look, imagine what it could've been like it, triple it. It was off the scale, fantastic." Winfrey previously...

    Oscar-winner Tom Hanks thinks America is going to be just “fine” if Donald Trump earns the GOP presidential nomination — though he adds it will be a “hilarious” and exhausting general election season if the billionaire candidate wins the Republican nomination.

    WASHINGTON: The famous African explorer Dr David Livingstone might have been impressed, even if the agenda was suspect. Pakistan’s disgraced nuclear proliferator-hero Abdul Qadeer Khan traversed the breadth of Africa in his hey day as a nuclear salesman , going to as romantic a getaway as Casablanca in Morocco and as remote an outpost as Timbuktu in Mali.   US officials might dearly like to get hold of Khan’s travel agent, or simply his itinerary, since he seems to have pretty much charted his own course during his profligate proliferating days. According to accounts now surfacing in the Pakistani media,...

    ......The two-minute clip shows Hanks hosting the castaway-themed auction in a room decorated to look like a jungle at the £18,000-a-year St Matthew’s Parish School in Pacific Palisades, California. As the blacked-up man takes the stage, Hanks quips that the Right-wing US commentator Bill O’Reilly, who has himself often been accused of racial insensitivity, has arrived....... ..........Hanks, who starred in the 2000 Hollywood film Castaway, recently narrated a 17-minute campaign video calling for President Barack Obama’s re-election. In response to the auction video, Niger Innis, of the Congress of Racial Equality, said: “I call upon President Obama, who has Tom...

    Tom Hanks has made a mockery of himself by participating in the Barack Obama ridicumentary "The Road Traveled." The single most ludicrous phrase, arguably ever, uttered by Hanks was "He would not dwell in blame" [VIDEO AT SITE] Never mind that the movie is an obsequious love story. It's also riddled with inaccuracies. Never mind that. "He would not dwell in blame."Good grief. It's ALL Obama does. Brit Hume wondered how Hanks could blather those words without coughing. Obama lives to blame. He revels in blaming others. A Google search for "Obama blames Bush" yields 4,400,000 hits. Curiously, the first...

    I’ve just sat through the 17 minute homage to Barack Obama narrated by Tom Hanks. How is it possible that Barack Obama’s approval rating is even close to 50%? Why isn’t it 100%? According to Hanks, Barack Obama is the real deal. Fearless. Intrepid. Selfless. And most of all: Successful. Like Lincoln before him, the events of the day forced his hand and the resulting display of courage and skill showed the greatness of the man. Like most of what Hollywood creates, this movie is fiction, utterly devoid of a real connection to the real world. In reality, Barack Obama...

    Video footage obtained by The Daily Caller shows Hollywood screen legend Tom Hanks and Eagles musician Glenn Frey at a 2004 fundraising auction, playfully interacting with a white man dressed as an African native, complete with blackface makeup and a giant Afro wig. Hanks most recently provided the narration for ”The Road We’ve Traveled,” a 17-minute-long campaign video meant to help President Barack Obama win re-election in November. The fundraiser, held March 13, 2004 at St. Matthew’s Parish School in Pacific Palisades, Calif., featured Hanks and Frey as co-emcees. Children of both men attended the school. The event’s theme, “Castaways,”...

    For those of you who don't know, Raw Story is an openly left-wing site. If the falsehood about GM repaying their bailout is so glaring that even a Raw Story feels compelled to point it out, some re-shoots might be in order. Hopefully, the doc's narrator, Tom Hanks, is available to record something closer to the truth this time. My guess is that he'll make time even if he is rushing into production a HBO "docu-drama" called "Mitt Romney's Three Wives" -- which at this point would surprise no one. Raw Story: The Obama 2012 campaign has released a short...

    TMZ tracked down Bristol Palin's heckler -- the one who screamed, "Your mother's a whore!" at a West Hollywood bar last night, and he's not ashamed at all. Stephen Hanks is a 47-year old L.A. consultant who would not say what he consults on. He did, however, tell us this was not a setup. As for Hanks' thoughts on Bristol's comment -- jumping to what turns out to be the correct conclusion that he's gay -- he has more choice words for Sarah's little girl.

    Three weeks to save Hollywood signThursday, March 25, 2010 » 03:22pm A conservation group says it has just three weeks to raise 3 million US dollars to save the iconic Hollywood sign from being razed by investors who want to build luxury houses on the site. Tim Ahern of the Trust for Public Land says they feel they have a good chance of doing that. The group needs to raise money to reach the 12.5 million US dollars needed to purchase the 55-hectare parcel of rugged land surrounding the sign from a Chicago-based consortium that has acquired rights to build...

    Don Imus, for one, is not surprised by Tom Hanks' recent comments calling WWII and the War on Terrorism racist crusades undertaken by the United States. First brought to his attention by "Imus in the Morning" producer Bernard McGuirk on the show, the remarks were news to the host - just not shocking news. "Oh darn, what a surprise. We have another panty-wearing liberal dickweed from Hollywood - of course!" Imus told McGuirk. McGuirk dubbed Hanks "Tehran Tom" for remarks the actor made March 5 on-set of MSNBC to promote "The Pacific," the HBO mini-series he helped produce.

    Much has been written of the recent Tom Hanks remarks to Douglas Brinkley in a Time magazine interview about his upcoming HBO series on World War II in the Pacific. Here is the explosive excerpt that is making the rounds today. “Back in World War II, we viewed the Japanese as ‘yellow, slant-eyed dogs’ that believed in different gods. They were out to kill us because our way of living was different. We, in turn, wanted to annihilate them because they were different. Does that sound familiar, by any chance, to what’s going on today?” Hanks may not have been...
