  • The loneliness of Elizabeth Warren: 'I feel like I'm living in a movie'

    Elizabeth Warren was hiking on the Pacific Crest Trail in central Washington with her husband last fall and texting nature photos back and forth with Jay Inslee, the state's governor, who at that moment happened to be hiking in the San Juan Islands with his wife. Inslee had recently dropped out of the 2020 presidential race, while Warren was fresh off a sizable rally under Seattle's Space Needle, making them a part of a very small club of people on planet Earth who know what it's like to be put through the peculiar wringer of trying to become leader of...

    Went to see Call of the Wild last night. I'd like to tell you that it was a great movie, or even a movie worth seeing. I can't. In fact, at best it's very mediocre. From the opening you can tell that Fido is a computer generated figure, and that fact wouldn't bother me, if it gave you a Disney Like affinity for the pooch...but it doesn't. I'm not going to go into any details, only to tell you that if you need a movie to watch, there are plenty at the moment worth seeing more than this one. 1917,...

    Thanks be to almighty God, Clarence Thomas did not have to die nor was he silenced. Drawing on the lessons instilled in him as a youth by his grandfather and as a student of America’s Founding Fathers, he was able to survive the “high-tech lynching” of his Senate confirmation hearings for the Supreme Court. Our nation and generations to come are better for it. “Created Equal: Clarence Thomas in His Own Words” tells the compelling story of a common man who overcame great adversity and, in so doing, became a great man. This powerful documentary, scheduled for release Friday, has...

    Unplanned is one of those films that have many distinct attributes to it. For one, its composition is so well done, that it makes you look at the substance of a very controversial issue in a very unique way. Second, apart from being one of the most definitive films of 2019, it is a film that will play an important part of a movement…. For many years to come. Thirdly, this film stirs up contention among extremely political special interest groups, which in turn raises awareness to the substance to the cause, and debate as well. But once you see...
  • Potential juror in Harvey Weinstein's trial said she couldn't serve on the jury because her friend once had an 'encounter' with the disgraced movie mogul in a hotel room

    A potential juror for the Harvey Weinstein sexual assault case in New York was dismissed after she told the court she could not be impartial because a friend had had an 'encounter' with the embattled movie mogul in his hotel room. The woman's comment was made this week when asked by Judge James Burke if she could be a fair and impartial juror in Weinstein's case. 'I have a close friend who had an encounter with the defendant in his hotel room,' the woman said, according to BuzzFeed News. The news comes after reports that Harvey Weinstein's defense team was...

    Hillary Clinton will be among the star-studded crowd attending this year's Sundance Film Festival, with the former secretary of State poised to participate in a Q&A on a documentary focused on her 2016 presidential bid. The ex-senator and first lady will participate in a discussion about the docuseries "Hillary" at the annual film festival on Jan. 25, according to the event's organizers. Clinton will appear alongside "Hillary" director Nanette Burstein, the Sundance website says. Burstein's four-part docuseries, which will be screened at Sundance, "interweaves biographical chapters of Clinton’s life with previously unreleased behind-the-scenes footage from her 2016 presidential campaign, resulting...

    Richard Jewell, the movie, shows Richard as a clear, unapologetic member of the American gun culture. I saw Clint Eastwood's latest movie, Richard Jewell, on Friday evening, December 27th, 2019, in Fort Worth, Texas. I have been a Clint Eastwood fan for decades. His work as a director has been excellent. I highly recommend the movie.The plot of what happened to Richard is well known, as the political leaks of the FBI, the legacy media, and the multi-million dollar settlement for the defamation of Richard Jewell, testifies. Jewell's name was leaked to the media. He was portrayed as the bomber...
  • Why Greta Gerwig’s ‘Little Women’ Is A Huge Letdown

    'Little Women' is so important and transcends each generation because it captures the differences between women — in personalities, desires, and fortunes. Greta Gerwig's rendition didn't quite cut it. “Little Women” is a timeless story that should make you cry. For goodness sake, Beth dies. The fact that I wasn’t a bit emotional watching the latest retelling of the classic story is quite concerning, and even more so, disappointing. Greta Gerwig’s new version left me completely devoid of feeling, although the story is full of it.In fact, two other recent adaptations — Clare Niederpruem’s modern adaptation of “Little Women” (2018)...

    In the midst of promoting three of his latest starring turns, Adam Driver sat for an interview with NPR’s highly influential talk show Fresh Air. But listeners will never hear it. Sources at NPR told The Daily Beast that Driver walked out of an interview earlier this month with Fresh Air host Terry Gross after expressing displeasure at the idea of listening to a clip of himself singing “Being Alive” from the musical Company. Driver’s character sings the song late in Noah Baumbach’s new Netflix film Marriage Story. According to one source, Gross’ team was aware that Driver prefers not...

    Over the last few years, journalists have responded to accusations of "fake news" with arrogant proclamations that they are the misunderstood Guardians of Truth and Providers of Fact. But not every news story is a perfectly baked slice of Facts or Truth. Sometimes reporters merely recount what they heard but what they were told was wrong. We should all cringe whenever we hear the two words "breaking news." Time and again, news breaks out but the details are anyone's guess -- literally. "(ABC/NBC/CBS/CNN/Fox) hasn't confirmed this, but others are reporting ...," they say, and then they proceed to repeat rumors...

    I recently got out of a relationship. That’s never an easy thing. In addition, Hallmark decided to make a feel-good holiday movie about it. Some of you may have seen it — “The Christmas Farmer,” it was called, referring to the guy my ex, Debbie, is apparently engaged to now. It is what it is, but I don’t feel like I was fairly represented in the movie. I get it: I’m a New York City corporate attorney courting the small-town girl, but I thought she wanted to be a part of this world. The first time I met Debbie at...

    “Bombshell” is ready to make a splash in theaters this winter, and we have a fresh look at the drama chronicling the scandal that shook up Fox News forever. The film centers around the stories of various female Fox News personnel and their altercations with founder Roger Ailes, who resigned as chairman and CEO of the network in July 2016 following sexual harassment allegations. Ailes died in 2018. Directed by Jay Roach (”Meet the Parents," “Recount”), it stars Charlize Theron as Megyn Kelly, Nicole Kidman as Gretchen Carlson and Margot Robbie as associate producer (a composite character based on more...

    Hollywood’s living saint playing America’s one true hero: What we can learn from the Hanks-Rogers niceness summit in the new film “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” ___________ (snip) -- Directed by Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) and out Friday, it’s a sensitive portrait of an unlikely friendship. Lloyd doesn’t get the whole Mr. Rogers schtick. But spending time with him, being a direct, in-person benefactor of the icon’s surprisingly workmanlike investment in other people’s well-being, he’s convinced. They forge a bond that is nothing short of profound. Along the way the film illuminates some truths that are...

    (CNN) — The "Joker" hit movie theaters Friday despite a wave of criticism that it glorifies a killer and could encourage copycat attacks nationwide. The movie featuring Joaquin Phoenix is about a marginalized clown that goes on a killing rampage. The story's told in a manner that seeks to evoke empathy without rooting for him, says CNN's Brian Lowry. **SNIP** In a joint bulletin, the FBI and the Department of Homeland Security warned law enforcement after online threats called for mass shootings at movie showings. The bulletin shared with police this week said while federal authorities had no information leading...

    Hollywood continues peddling fantasies of killing Trump supporters and conservatives As the delusional, insane cult of liberalism continues to infect every institution across America, Hollywood has been transformed into the place where left-wing fantasies are played out on the big screen to satisfy the delusions of the brainwashed masses. The latest example of these left-wing fantasies of delusion is found in a new Netflix feature movie called, “In the Shadow of the Moon.” This new film imagines time-traveling liberals who wear Antifa hoodies murdering patriots across America, following a pre-crime kill list that includes a concert pianist, a grill...

    It remains to be seen if the latest incarnation of Rambo will attract audiences.  Most of those who go to movie theaters these days are likely unfamiliar with all the earlier incarnations of Stallone's Rambo films.  The first was in 1982, First Blood.  It dealt, in exaggerated form, with the anger and resentment toward the returning vets from Vietnam.  The Left's intolerance for our military was as egregious then as it is now.  For inexplicable reasons, leftists loathe our first line of defense against our enemies, whom they always seem to revere or defend.  "It was ever thus," to quote Una Merkel in the original Parent Trap.So...

    This year marks the 60th anniversary of the release of North by Northwest. Here's what Mark had to say about this classic film a few years ago: Alfred Hitchcock's North by Northwest contains what I think of as the all-time great strangers-on-a-train scene, and one I always recall if I'm in the dining car of an at least potentially exotic choo-choo - the Eurostar, say - and a glamorous femme comes sashaying down the aisle, even if she does park herself at some other guy's table. In a lifetime's travel, everyone should have a North by Northwest moment: on a...

    The novelist behind the “Rambo” series is waging war — against his own creation. Author David Morrell, who breathed life into Vietnam War vet and one-man wrecking crew John Rambo in his 1972 novel “First Blood,” is the latest critic to badmouth Sylvester Stallone’s newest film. “I agree with these ‘Rambo: Last Blood’ reviews. This film is a mess, tweeted Morrell on Friday. “Embarrassed to have my name associated with it.” Morrell stated he had initially been involved in the creation of “Last Blood,” which was to show a more impassioned Rambo; instead, Matthew Cirulnick completed the gory screenplay. “I...
