Shock! Hollywood is filled with hyprocrites and less-than-thoughtful lefties. But some take the cake. Thanks to a site called the Internet Firearms Database, here are a few big-mough gun-grabbers, and some of their favorite guns to grab on-set.
The PC victimhood adventure that is the Ghostbusters 2016 reboot is estimated to have a staggering 70 million dollars in losses after hitting theaters with a dull thud this Summer. Sony, the movie’s producer, is still “proud,” according to The Hollywood Reporter.
After the first trailers for the new fantasy, action adventure “The Great Wall” came out, it was only a matter of time before the complaints ensued. The lead actor in this Chinese blow-‘em-up film is a white guy, Matt Damon.
Is media bias just smart marketing? Yes, suggests Taibbi, who claims it’s “irrelevant” that “most individual reporters” are liberals given that their profit-driven, audience-conscious corporate overlords keep them on a short leash. “Whatever their personal leanings, influential reporters mostly work in nihilistic corporations, to whom the news is a non-ideological commodity, to be sold the same way we hawk cheeseburgers or Marlboro Lights,” argued Taibbi in a July 22 article. “Wars, scandals and racial conflicts sell, while poverty and inequality do not. So reporters chase one and not the other. It's just business.”
The feminists seem to think that if they can just call enough Americans “misogynists” and “sexists,” their all-female Ghostbusters reboot will be successful. Since that hasn’t worked yet, Washington Post columnist Kristen Page-Kirby has a new insult to try out. In her review of the film, she wrote that “’Ghostbusters’ is pretty funny and anyone who says otherwise is a virgin loser who lives in his mom’s basement.”
Hollywood’s agenda-pushing is no secret. In fact, producers and actors don’t even attempt to deny it. In interviews conducted by Ben Shapiro, executive producer Leonard Goldberg stated that Hollywood liberalism is “100 percent dominant, and anyone who denies it is kidding, or not telling the truth.” Even if everyone denied it, you’d only have to watch a handful of movies to catch the ideological drift. So here’s the handful that MRC Culture recommends – or, doesn’t – a list of some of the worst offenders. It was hard to choose, and we know there are many more liberal films out there, so take a look and leave a comment with movies your top picks.
In the upcoming movie, Imperium, Daniel Radcliffe plays an FBI agent infiltrating a neo-Nazi sect. That should be a movie everyone can get on board with: the freedom-loving American versus the oppressive Nazis. Think again.
The new movie Me Before You looks to be an inspirational love story. A lower-class woman in England is hired to take care of a young man who recently became a quadroplegic after being hit by a car. He inspires her to live a fuller life; she inspires him to find the joys he can still realize from his wheelchair.
That’s the commercial, but that’s not the actual plot. Spoiler alert: this isn’t a love story, it’s a story of a man’s self-love leading to assisted suicide.
Those poor, naive folks who have been expecting a mea culpa from Katie Couric for the deceptive insertion into her Under the Gun documentary of a long silence following a question directed at Virginia gun-rights supporters will be disappointed at what has transpired since the controversy arose.
As of Thursday afternoon, no one was genuinely apologizing for anything. Stephanie Soechtig, the film’s producer, employed a tired "I apologize if anyone was offended, but I didn't mean any harm" excuse — garbage which the Washington Post's Erik Wemple, as Tim Graham at NewsBusters noted, should cause anyone using it to lose "their standing as professionals." For her part, Couric issued a statement saying “I support Stephanie’s statement and am very proud of the film.” Early Thursday evening, however, Couric appeared to move into damage-control mode, but in a way that should forever earn her the nickname "Katie Coward."
To mark the 10th anniversary of the release of the film documentary An Inconvenient Truth, May 24, 2016, Participant Media introduced a celebratory campaign with the social media hashtag #AIT10, and the slogan “Share your truth.” It also made free digital copies of the film available for 24 hours through a number of digital retailers, including Amazon, Itunes, and Comcast’s Xfinity On Demand.
During a fawning interview with former Vice President Al Gore aired on Monday’s NBC Today, correspondent Anne Thompson teed up the global warming activist to bash Republicans: “Do you see a Trump presidency undoing all the progress that the U.S. has made in the last ten years in the fight against climate change?” Thompson fretted: “This is a man who’s called climate change a ‘hoax’ and other words that we cannot use on network TV....So where's the hope?"
Left-wing bias; it’s not just for the news pages. The New York Times Weekend Arts roundup demonstrates how it saturates the paper, even -- perhaps especially -- in the paper’s Manhattan-centric cultural coverage, with rants about racist voter suppression in 2016 and how high-end art buyers "control the inequitable economy in America today."
