  • Max Review: Family Film Honors Military Dogs

    06/27/2015 10:54:06 AM PDT · by Kaslin · 7 replies
    Townhall.com ^ | June 27, 2015 | John Hanlon
    At the beginning and end of the new family drama Max, the filmmakers tell us about the importance of military dogs. In text appearing during the opening moments , it’s noted that over 3000 dogs have served in Iraq and Afghanistan and that dogs have been used in the military since World War I. The film hopes to honor that— and properly does so— but then unfortunately loses its stamina in a silly subplot plot about weapons being smuggled from war zones into the United States. Early on in the story, military hero Kyle Wincott (Robbie Amell) is killed overseas...
  • George Clooney’s ‘Tomorrowland’ bombs at box office as Hollywood pushes climate fiction

    washingtontimes.com ^ | June 17, 2015 | Valerie Richardson
    Disney’s “Tomorrowland” may be bombing at the box office, but on the plus side, it could win a Cliffie. The Cliffie awards go to films that exemplify “cli-fi,” or climate fiction, an emerging genre heating up this year as climate change themes seep from documentaries into big-budget Hollywood features. That means cli-fi films such as “Tomorrowland,” which has tanked despite an A-list director in Brad Bird and huge star in George Clooney, could be just the tip of the iceberg. “The narrative for Hollywood is that global warming is a growing crisis, and it’s now set to permeate more...

    Lots of Star Wars fans hate marketing-friendly Ewoks from Return of the Jedi with a passion (related: lots of Star Wars fans apparently hate everything that is good in life) and were likely holding out hope that Warwick Davis’ return in The Force Awakens didn’t necessarily mean that Ewoks would be back. But they’re about to be disappointed: new promotional materials indicate that Davis will reprise his role of Wicket the Ewok.

  • I'm not buying Emma Stone as an Asian-American in Aloha

    05/30/2015 9:49:26 AM PDT · by SMGFan · 73 replies
    EW ^ | May 29, 2015
    Accepting Emma Stone as an Asian-American in Aloha requires a certain suspension of disbelief and no small amount of magical thinking. In the Hawaii-set romantic comedy-drama, she portrays Allison Ng: an aggressively peppy Air Force fighter pilot of Chinese-Hawaiian-Swedish decent who falls for an existentially angst-y military contractor played by Bradley Cooper. But in order to process this idea of Stone as a bi-racial character, as someone whose genetic lineage can be traced back to the Middle Kingdom by way of Polynesia, you must first get past the obvious stumbling blocks: her alabaster skin and strawberry blond hair, her emerald...

    Since the official teaser trailer for Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice debuted online in April, fans and critics alike have been discussing the kind of Superman Zack Snyder is going to depict in his Man of Steel sequel. The controversy stems from Snyder's decision to cast Superman as a brooding, Dark Knight-like character, who cares more about beating up bad guys than saving people. The casting split has proved divisive among Superman fans: Some love the new incarnation, citing him as an edgier, more realistic version of the character. But Snyder's is a different Superman than the one fans...
  • ‘Tomorrowland’ tops box office with $32.2 million during slow Memorial Day Weekend (Clooney/Disney)

    NY Daily News ^ | 5/24/15 | Reuters
    There weren't as many fireworks at the Memorial Day weekend box office this year as newcomer "Tomorrowland" disappointed with a $32.2 million debut. The science-fiction adventure stars George Clooney and was directed by Brad Bird of "Mission: Impossible - Ghost Protocol" renown. The Disney release is expected to pull in a lackluster $40.7 million for the four-day period. -snip- "Tomorrowland" had been expected to generate $40 million over the three-day period and $50 million over the four-day stretch. With a $180 million price tag, Disney faces an uphill climb to profitability. Not helping matters, overseas figures were an underwhelming $26.7...

    American Thinker ^ | Robert Oscar Lopez
    The dystopian images of Fury Road depart significantly from the Mad Max films of the 1970s and 1980s. Fury Road presents us with a world where motherhood is commodified to suit an elite class of males who wish to share their property and life ambitions only with other men. Women are hooked up to machines that pump milk from their breasts and held inside dismal barracks, gestating heirs for warlords who show no sexual interest in women. The men of this warrior ruling class derive all their ecstasy from the company of muscular young males eager to labor and soldier...
  • ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ Trounces Its Competition

    05/17/2015 2:30:50 PM PDT · by Perdogg · 27 replies
    “Pitch Perfect 2” stopped the show at the box office this weekend, grossing an estimated $70.3 million in first place. That debut is about $5 million more than the entire domestic gross of the original film, and more than double the sequel’s $29 million budget. Heading into the weekend, analysts expected the sequel to premiere in the $40 million range. But not much about the “Pitch Perfect” franchise has made sense by traditional Hollywood rules. The original film, an acerbic comedy set in the low-stakes world of collegiate a capella singing, opened in September 2012—hardly a time of year known...

    A well-known "men's rights activist" blog is calling for a boycott of the postapocalyptic film "Mad Max: Fury Road" for being a "feminist piece of propaganda posing as a guy flick." Author Aaron Clarey admits he has not seen the film yet, but his self-proclaimed "spidey sense" noticed that Charlize Theron "talked a lot during the trailers" for the film, and he said Tom Hardy only seemed to have cameo appearances. "Charlize Theron's character barked orders to Mad Max," writes Clarey on Return of Kings. "Nobody barks orders to Mad Max." Clarey did not like reading reviews commending Theron for...

    You might want to hold onto your money until you read some reviews. I am reading internet scuttlebutt that the new Mad Max movie is a feminist movie disguised as an action flick. Information is still sketchy as the movie has not yet been released. One DUmmie saw a full screening and posted how delighted he/she was that the movie was feminist as well as blamed men and the 1% for the collapse of society. (I won't post the link but you can find it easily enough. It is a newer post.) I read elsewhere that the director or producer...

    The final episode of AMC’s “Mad Men” this Sunday heralds the end of a TV era. The show’s seven seasons covered the turbulent decade from 1960 until 1970, dramatizing changing styles and social mores in the lives of “Mad Men” and women, or professionals in the Madison Avenue advertising industry. For those who aren’t regular watchers: A lot of the show’s male characters spent their time chasing young women around the office and a lot of the female characters spent their time trying to land or keep a husband. Critics have consistently lauded the series, not just for its entertainment...

    Townhall.com ^ | May 14, 2015 | Michael Hausam
    As a huge television buff, I'm uniquely qualified to render this opinion: "Turn" is the best show currently playing on any network.It's the story of young father caught up in the American Revolution, who, trying to keep his head down and nose clean, ultimately decides to become a spy for the Continental Army. Based upon a book I'd neither read nor even heard of, Alexander Rose’s "Washington's Spies: The Story of America's First Spy Ring,” it adroitly weaves in the exploits of Abraham Woodhull with the better-known stories and events of the war.I was first drawn to it due its...

    $212.46. That is what the average family of four spent at a major league ballgame last year. For the budget-conscious, that price tag makes it mighty tempting to stay home and enjoy the boys of summer on TV—either a live game or a classic baseball movie. But watching some of the most fondly remembered films about the national passtime suggest that maybe both the game’s time and what made America great are passing. Here are five films that make the case.5. Moneyball (2011) Brad Pitt and Jonah Hill take the Oakland Athletics from a mediocre, going-broke franchise to a cash-cow...

    Alejandro Monteverde and Eduardo Verastegui have produced and directed another great Catholic and family centered movie. This movie should be watched and enjoyed by all families. Little Boy is a movie about Pepper Flynt Busbee "Little Boy" (Jakob Salvati) who is often harassed and bullied by most of his peers, and which the whole town is soon harassing as well, based on his petite nature. It is only his father, James Busbee (Michael Rapaport) who is his only real companion and friend. James Busbee is however soon drafted to the military to fight in the Second World War, as London...

    J.J. Abrams, the director tasked with bringing Star Wars back to the top of the crowded franchise heap, has always been happy to borrow. When he set out to make a new Star Trek and drag that moribund cinematic franchise back into blockbuster territory, he cheerfully swapped in some very familiar visual language to help it over the hill. Early on in the film, James Kirk (Chris Pine), nursing a desire to transcend his farmboy life, rides a motorcycle to see the U.S.S. Enterprise being built at a shipyard, and gazes up at it longingly. Star Wars fans would connect...

    There are classic films, like the ones on TCM and AMC, and there are modern films. There are few modern classics. "Little Boy," in theaters April 24, could be a modern classic. The film is set in a Southern California town during World War II. A couple's oldest son, London Busbee (David Henrie), is drafted, but is barred from service because of his flat feet. The father, James Busbee (Michael Rapaport), goes instead and his youngest son, Pepper Flynt Busbee, 8, beautifully played by Jakob Salvati, is devastated. Pepper and his father have a very close relationship (they call...

    "A.D. – The Bible Continues" premieres on Sunday, April 5, to coincide with the Easter holiday. It's a time of celebration for Christians, and the new series from Mark Burnett and Roma Downey captures the turmoil and emotions of those witnesses to the death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. The series opens with the final moments of Jesus' life played out: charges of blasphemy brought by the High Priest, Pontius Pilate washing his hands of accountability in Jesus' death, and the crucifixion. Viewers are introduced to a man desperately trying to spare his own life in the midst of...

    The upcoming National Geographic miniseries "Killing Jesus," which is based on Fox News commentator Bill O'Reilly's bestselling book of the same name, tells the story of the historical Jesus and leaves the supernatural claims made by believers out of the equation. The approach to the film was intentional, according to some of the actors in the film who believe it will help to get the Jesus story out to those who are skeptics. Chris Ryman, who plays Malchus, the Roman guard who arrests Jesus before His crucifixion, commented on the film's portrayal of Jesus — the man — in the...

It turns out that the nobody actor, Donal Lardner Ward, in the lead role also wrote and directed the movie. Fortunately almost nothing has been heard of him since. So as a public service, please list the WORST movies you've seen in the past year so we know not to waste our time on them.

    Christians across the country are expressing concern as Focus on the Family’s “Plugged In” movie staff has released its review of the pornographic film “Fifty Shades of Grey”—especially that a critic at the professing Christian ministry watched the porn just to tell other Christians that they shouldn’t watch it. Plugged In said that it received an email from a follower who asked them not to review the film, and thus penned an blog post about the matter to explain its decision to watch and critique the material. “Fifty Shades of Grey is, without question, one of the most ‘popular’ elements...

That tells her when to coast into whatever anonymous burgh she's near and start the next chapter of her life. It's a pattern that's already propelled her across 14 states.

    Sitting through “Fifty Shades” was an ugly, disturbing and emotionally draining experience. It wasn’t the tiresome unsexy sex scenes (she’s always naked, he never is — where’s your feminist god now?) or the oppressively barren cinematography. What curdled my soul was being locked for two hours in a world that attempted to tell me that what I was seeing might be okay. That……liberation comes from male dominance…feminism comes from submission to a man.…being stalked is romantic.…wanting to “fix” the man who wants to abuse you is romance.…emotional manipulation can lead to love.…physical abuse is making love.

It might surprise you that so many women have read the book – well, until you find out that 100 million copies have been sold. When you consider that you can supposedly hit the New York Times Best Seller List with a few hundred copies moved...

    The film 50 Shades of Grey is likely to be financially successful no matter what. The film—which is likely the first part of a new franchise—is an adaptation of the unbelievably popular E.L. James novel. Few would’ve guessed a few short years ago that there was a huge untapped market for this type of story, which originated as Twilight fan fiction. But there undeniably was a big market for this. Millions and millions and millions of copies were sold. The book became a massive bestseller and the new cinematic adaptation of it will likely dominate—pardon the pun—the box office this...

    Winston Churchill credited Mrs Miniver with increasing American support for the war effort. A new programme finds out how the domestic drama changed history. “We will come. We will bomb your cities.” So bristles a character in the film Mrs Miniver. A German pilot who had been shot down in the chocolate box English village of Belham, he momentarily brings the horrors of World War II to what is largely a domestic drama. The movie – released in June 1942, going on to win the best picture Oscar the following year – is credited with consolidating American support for the...

    D.W. Griffith’s film was released on 8 February 1915. One hundred years after it was made The Birth of a Nation still has the power to both enthrall and appall. The film is as confounding as ever, both brilliant and repugnant. Groundbreaking in its use of innovative cinematic techniques, it remains tainted by its brazen racism. The Birth of a Nation was the creation of DW Griffith, who had tried his hand as an actor and playwright but whose real genius lay in film-making. Nothing on its scale had even been attempted before. It was the epic story of the...
