Annapurna Pictures desperately needed a hit going into the 2018 Oscar campaign. Instead, the struggling studio went 0 for 3 at the box office. Both Destroyer and If Beale Street Could Talk sank like stones at the box office despite solid reviews. The studio’s biggest casualty? The high-profile Vice, the hard-left propaganda piece created by Adam McKay.
There’s a very good reason 81 percent of Republicans have said they won’t watch Sunday night’s Academy Awards, according to a new poll. Hollywood is the Left Coast base of the anti-Trump resistance and over the years they have made their disdain for conservatives very clear. After all, last year’s Oscars host Jimmy Kimmel joked, “We don't make films for money. We make them to upset Mike Pence.”
These last few weeks have seen liberal journalists blame Donald Trump for the shutdown, attack his presidency as racist and even compare him to cancer. Check here to see the worst of the worst media and celebrity meltdowns.
Hollywood is welcoming the new year with the start of the awards season. The 76th Annual Golden Globe Awards aired January 6 on NBC. Though the show was mostly tame in political rhetoric from the award winners, presenters, and hosts, that streak was broken when Christian Bale won the Best Actor Award for his role as former Vice President Dick Cheney in the movie Vice. Along with thanking Satan for inspiration, he also mused about playing Senator Mitch McConnell as the next in a series of "charisma-free assholes."
The Washington Post paints itself as Holding Government Accountable, but it still publishes the most embarrassing laudatory dreck supporting its favorite socialist elites. Freelancer Jeff Weiss -- who notoriously polished Bill Maher's "ideology-free" apple for the Post in 2014 -- penned a tribute with the online headline "Adam McKay went from Ron Burgundy to Dick Cheney, and it actually makes perfect sense."
The anti-Dick Cheney movie Vice is getting a lot of award nominations, but it's also getting plenty of rotten tomatoes hurled at it. Newsday gave it one star. Other critics either called it the year’s worst film or on the very short list for that dishonor. And then there’s the race card. Two critics from prominent news outlets repeatedly used the race of the film’s title character, and even its creator Adam McKay himself, to denigrate the project.
For the third day in a row, one of the three networks fawned over Vice, the far-left hit job about the life of former Vice President Dick Cheney. Good Morning America co-host Lara Spencer on Thursday touted “so much buzz” for the nasty, conspiracy-filled movie. This comes after GMA pushed the movie on Wednesday and CBS This Morning hosts interviewed the film’s director on Tuesday.
CBS This Morning co-host John Dickerson on Tuesday conducted a softball interview with the star and the director of the new left-leaning Dick Cheney film Vice. Dickerson offered no tough questions and hinted that the film was accurate. Talking to Christian Bale and Adam McKay, Dickerson gushed, “Like McKay, Bale studied Cheney from the tiniest details to the big ones. Like suffering multiple heart attacks.” Bale then proceeded to explain how he had a cardiologist act out what it’s like to have a heart attack.
During an interview with former Vice President Dick Cheney Monday morning to share remembrances of the late President George H.W. Bush, Today show co-host Savannah Guthrie reminded Cheney, who served as Bush 41's defense secretary, that the former president had once criticized him for being too “hardline.”
A new character assassination, er, I mean biopic about Vice President Dick Cheney is set to hit theaters this Christmas. Starring Christian Bale in the titular role, Vice appears to be less of a thoughtful political drama detailing Cheney’s role during the Bush years, and more of a gritty, gangster movie, depicting the vice president’s quest for absolute power.
If there was ever any doubt about the intentions of Sacha Baron Cohen’s Who is America?, Sunday night’s episode settles it. Three out of the four segments in tonight’s episode of the Showtime series mocked conservatives while none mocked liberals.
Thursday marked an awful, no-good, very bad day for MSNBC host Chris Matthews as President Trump picked John Bolton to replace H.R. McMaster as National Security Adviser. Less than an hour later, Matthews uncorked a hissy fit for the ages on Hardball lasting the whole show on the man he dubbed a modern Hideki Tojo and “biggest hawk there's ever been.”
