    On Jan. 22, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences Academy will announce the five short documentary films up for the Oscar. Among the shortlisted films is the documentary “Women of the Gulag” by Russian-American director, Marianna Yarovskaya. It is the first time in the 91 years of the Oscar’s history that a woman director from Russia is so close to getting such prestigious award. Yarovskaya´s documentary film centers on the memories of six remarkable women survivors of the Gulag. Now in their eighties and nineties, they were sentenced to Soviet forced labor camps during the Stalin era. But...

    Hearts around the world were warmed earlier this year when Sony Pictures released its first image of Tom Hanks suited up for his role as Fred Rogers in the upcoming movie about Rogers’ incredible life of gentle love for children.

And now, it has a title. > Yep, the movie will be called It’s a Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. That makes a lot of...
  • LAPD and N.Y. police may differ on the best coast but agree 'Die Hard' is a Christmas movie

    LA TImes via AP ^ | Dec 24, 2018 | 12:15 PM | Editorial Staff
    The Los Angeles and New York police departments are poking some fun at their perceived rivalry and wading into the hotly contested debate: Is “Die Hard” a Christmas movie? It began Monday when the NYPD tweeted it had been working with its Los Angeles counterpart “to protect Christmas since Hans Gruber’s 1988 attack on Nakatomi Plaza.” It included the hashtag “YesItsAChristmasMovie.” On this Christmas Eve, we’d like to acknowledge our partners at @LAPDHQ who have been working with us to protect Christmas since Hans Gruber’s 1988 attack on Nakatomi Plaza. #DetectiveJohnMclean #YesItsAChristmasMovie pic.twitter.com/qOEgD1Lqt3 — NYPD NEWS (@NYPDnews) December 24, 2018...

    Anyone need a good chuckle? A guy made a bot watch 1000 hours of Hallmark Christmas movies, and then had it write a script. All he shared was page One, and it's pretty funny. If Hallmark doesn't option the script, this would make an awesome lego movie. A few more lines at the site.

  • 5 reasons why 'A Christmas Story' is actually a terrible Christmas movie (barf alert)

    When A Christmas Story opened in theaters on Nov. 18, 1983, it was not one of the year’s biggest films. Thirty-five years later, that little movie looms large over the holiday season. You can buy “major award” leg lamps at any price point, tour Ralphie’s actual house that was used in the filming of the movie, watch the Broadway musical adaptation and, of course, spend 24 hours in front of the TV watching the annual Christmas Story marathon on basic cable. The film has become a Christmas tradition beloved by many — but not all. In this video, I make...

    Breitbart ^ | 11/3/18 | John Nolte
    First Man has officially flopped, and not just here at home, but all over the world. After three full weeks in distribution, the critical darling will barely creep over $40 million domestic and, according to Deadline, has already fallen out of the top ten. As of Thursday, and after 20 full days in release, First Man had grossed only $39 million domestic. Outside North America, the story about Neil Armstrong, the first man to walk on the moon, is doing even worse, with just $37 million. With a $60 million production budget and somewhere between $30 and $50 million spent...

    New York Times ^ | 10/25/18 | Ben Kenigsberg
    In “Hunter Killer,” ordinary alliances are suddenly upended and the United States Navy must do whatever it can to protect the interests of the Russian president. No, it’s not a documentary; it’s a submarine movie. Sent to find an American sub that appears to have sunk in Russian waters, Joe Glass (Gerard Butler), the captain of another American sub, quickly realizes that this was no ordinary sinking. A Russian vessel that plummeted alongside the missing American one was sabotaged, not torpedoed. Above ground, the Russian defense minister (Michael Gor) is staging a coup. He’s taken the Russian president (Alexander Diachenko)...

    The new movie about Kermit Gosnell, the notorious Philadelphia late-term abortionist eventually convicted in the deaths of three infants, made it into the Top 10 films at the box office this past weekend--an impressive feat for a crowd-funded film. But you won’t hear the mainstream media talking about it. “We were [No. 10] on Friday and Saturday, but slipped back to 12 on Sunday,” Phelim McAleer, who co-produced the film with his wife, Ann McElhinney, told The Daily Signal. “We are the No. 1 independent movie of the weekend and [No. 5] per screen average across the U.S.” “This has...

    November’s Harry Potter prequel Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald will make “clear in what you see” that one of its main characters is homosexual, the director teased in a new interview. During her 2007 tour for the final book of the main Harry Potter series, author J.K. Rowling told a crowd that “Dumbledore is gay, actually,” despite the elderly mentor character’s sexual attraction not being referenced in the books themselves. The bombshell earned her accolades from pro-LGBT activists but also criticism from parents concerned about exposing their kids to adult and morally-objectionable themes. Critics of the series, such as...

It stars Jon Voight, Stacey Dash and Robert Davi, but many people did not even know the movie was underway until a recent Hollywood Reporter story told of a shoot plagued by the exits of multiple people because of the script’s pro-life leanings.

    Hollywood’s portrayal of astronaut Neil Armstrong in the biopic “First Man” was quick to elicit the attention on Friday of aviation legend Gen. Chuck Yeager. Social media platforms lit up before the weekend as news spread that Ryan Gosling’s latest film does not include the American flag being planted on the moon. Critics fretted that “First Man” would essentially turn Mr. Armstrong into a progressive caricature when Mr. Yeager, 95, weighed in. “Ryan Gosling is coming out with the movie First Man where it portrays Neil Armstrong as a liberal progressive anti-Trump (in spirit) non-flag waiver,” a user identified as...
