The Bawdy, Sexy Sundance Comedy Everyone Is Talking About
American Sniper is well on its way to being the biggest war film ever at the domestic box office, and second most popular R-rated film ever behind The Passion of the Christ.
The notion of being consigned to eternal damnation for our sins scared the bejeezus out of us. Admittedly, while most people in the Western world no longer believe in a fire and brimstone version of it, the overwhelming majority of us still rejoice in seeing bad people get punished.
Let me start by agreeing with the critics of American Sniper on one point. The movie does present Iraqis in a one-dimensional way and doesn't spend much time trying to understand the complexities of the war. Yet the fuss over the film is still ridiculously overblown.
One could have, perhaps, predicted the glut of pop culture-oriented podcasts that have sprung up. Hell, it's the linchpin for the recently launched WolfPop network of shows. Less understandable (at least to me) is the rise of the trivia-oriented podcast. Especially trivia AND comedy.
It is time to celebrate as the real "Hallmark Hall of Fame" is back. After too many years of silly comedies and soapy romances this special event of television has returned to the hallmark of what it once represented -- good, enjoyable family entertainment.
"Hannah Montana" star Miley Cyrus just listed her family's Los Angeles home for $5.995 million. The six-bedroom, 6.5-bathroom abode is in the affluent area of Toluca Lake and was designed by famed architect Bob Easton.
Selma does not turn away, and it rarely tries to neatly resolve. If the film's conclusion, which winds around President Johnson's announcement of his plans for the 1965 Voting Rights Act to the completion of the third Selma to Montgomery march, feels a little Hollywood in its neatness, that is counterbalanced by the unrelenting unease of the film's journey.
Today marks the 30th anniversary of the ThunderCats television show debuting on television. Along with He-Man and the Masters of the Universe, G.I. Joe and The Transformers, the series and its accompanying toy line were popular with boys (and their cool sisters) who grew up in the 1980s.
It, thus, effectively sanitizes this dark chapter in U.S. history, making it safe again for the masses to embrace chicken-hawk George W. Bush's deceitfully sold Iraq misadventure.
The hardest battles are not fault in the streets of Iraq or in the poppy fields of Afghanistan, but instead they are fought far from the front line back on the homefront.
Over the past decade, consumers have been armed with technology that allows us to do great things in our everyday life, but entertainment brands have been extremely late to the game in keeping up with these changes.
Simon & Schuster is bringing out, in April, a little book for young people who adore movies and want to work in making them. Or for anybody of any age who is still ambitious. It's not just for young adults.
After Disney's Tangled made its theatrical debut back in November of 2010, Roy Conli thought that there was no way to top the experience that this veteran producer had just had on that Walt Disney Animation Studios production.
The Lunchbox is a masterful study in how our longing is answered if we allow it to be answered. And our two main leads show how when you settle for anything less than what you entirely deserve you just land yourself a seat in a slow burn hell.
I asked Bakri to disclose a few things about himself, in the first person. Hidden within his answers is the key to his present and future success.
I see soldier worship as harmful because it so easily morphs into support for wars, no matter how unjust, by letting our affection for our fellow citizens in uniform and our desire to see them come home alive obscure the truth behind what they're supposedly fighting and dying for, which is rarely as black and white as we are told or wish it to be.
