    YouTube, The Rank Organization ^ | 7 October 1959 | Patrick Ford, Will Price
    This is a movie about the history of India and the events that led up to the splitting off of Pakistan from India in 1947. In it, British Army Captain Scott is tasked to rescue a Hindu child-prince from a "Muslim uprising" and convey him to safety at the Governor's residence in Haserabad (it is not clear whether "Haserabad" is a real place, or a renamed version of "Hyderabad). They journey across the "North West Frontier," which is territory in what is now Pakistan, into India, which is more firmly controlled by the British. This journey takes place by means...

    While many are still reeling from recent revelations that Chick-fil-A has opportunistically traded the Christian principles upon which it was founded for woke, pro-LGBT social justice causes, the head of the Hallmark Channel famous for its family-friendly Christmas movies indicated that Hallmark will likely begin to produce holiday films which include gay characters and themes. This year, Hallmark's legendary Countdown to Christmas will feature two dozen new, original movies produced by the channel. They will be shown 24 hours a day during the weeks leading up to Christmas.

    You may not have noticed, but movies no longer open on Fridays; almost all major releases begin their runs in theaters with a 7 p.m. showing on Thursday. (Until the late 1970s, by the way, most movies opened on Wednesdays, for no good reason other than that they had always opened on Wednesdays.) This meant that Sony Pictures knew by the time midnight rolled around on November 14, only five hours after its first showings, that they had a monumental turkey on their hands with the new version of Charlies Angels. Nobody went to see it on Thursday night, and...

    A friend of mine called this morning whod seen Clint Eastwoods Richard Jewell last night in Hollywood. She knew I was seeing it this morning in New York. Its going to upset your apple cart of an Oscar list, she said. She was right. Eastwood, at 90, has made a jewel of a film in Richard Jewell, a real masterclass in filmmaking. Eastwood will have to be nominated for Best Director. The screenplay and music (by Arturo Sandoval) will have to be nominated. And the actors, the actors now roll right into the top 5 in their respective categories. Paul...

    Hollywood in Toto ^ | 21 Nov 2019 | Christian Toto
    Timing is everything for living legend Clint Eastwood. The actor/director served up American Sniper after Hollywood stopped firing cinematic shots at the U.S. Military. The results? Sniper earned $350 million at the U.S. box office. Two years later Eastwood directed Sully, just when movie goers craved a true American hero story. That movie hauled in $125 million domestically. He may have topped himself with Richard Jewell. The film, out Dec. 13, recalls how the FBI and media unfairly painted the portly security guard as the main suspect in the 1996 Atlanta Olympics bombing. The blast killed one and injured 111...

    The Woketards have destroyed the Charlies Angels franchise, just like they did Ghostbusters, Terminator, and Men in Black. We now have four lucrative franchises that were originally created to appeal to everyone men, women, young, old Then the strident feminists goosestepped in, took over, and abused their power to exclude men, demean men, humiliate and mock men. And each time, the result is the same: box office catastrophe, the death of a golden goose franchise. Based on a dismal opening night, and the fact that at the first screening of Charlies Angels in my local theater I was the...

    In the wake of Terminator: Dark Fates failure at the B.O., and Paramounts recent decision to make Beverly Cops 4 for Netflix, we have the further breakdown of cinema IP in Sonys Charlies Angels reboot, which is tanking with a God-awful $8.2M opening, 3 Stars on Screen Engine-Comscores PostTrak, and a B+ Cinemascore. The Elizabeth Banks-directed-written and produced pic is also opening in 27 offshore markets, China being one where its also bombing, with a $6M two-day take in second place behind local title Somewhere Winter ($8.8M). All of this is primed to further spur a WTF reaction and anxiety...

    Heading into the weekend we were anticipating a top ten that would deliver around $110 million, as it turns out the top ten currently falls just short of a combined $100 million as Lionsgate's Midway delivered a surprise #1 finish, topping WB's Doctor Sleep, which slipped to second and well below expectations. [...] At the top of the weekend box office is Lionsgate's Midway, finishing ahead of expectations with an estimated $17.5 million from 3,242 locations. The film also scored an "A" CinemaScore from opening day audiences and should expect a strong performance over Veteran's Day tomorrow that should push...

    Very will done and presented. Was kind of disappointed the they didn't cover the Sinking of the USS Yorktown very much. Didn't really demonize any side (US OR Japanese) just showed Military Men doing their jobs. All in all at great movie. Really showed what war is really like.

Thats the movie Midway in a nutshell.

    Delta Air Lines will show unedited versions of Booksmart and Rocketman in its in-flight film offerings after critics called out the airline for censoring sexuality, including same-sex love, in previously deleted scenes. The company said in a statement Thursday that it did not ask for any homosexual content to be removed from the films. We value our in-flight entertainment options as a means to reflect the diversity of the world, the company said. We are reviewing the processes of our third-party editing vendors to ensure that they are aligned with our values of diversity and inclusion. The issue of censorship...

    Just Imagine is a 1930 science fiction musical-comedy film, directed by David Butler. The film is known for its art direction and special effects in its portrayal of New York City in an imagined 1980. Just Imagine stars El Brendel, Maureen O'Sullivan, John Garrick and Marjorie White. The film starts with a preamble showing life in 1880, where the people believed themselves the "last word in speed". It switches to 1930, with the streets crowded with automobiles and lined with electric lights and telephone wires. It then switches to 1980, where the tenement houses have morphed into 250-story buildings,...
