'Maleficent' Review: Jolie's the Whole Show - And That's Enough

Walt Disney's latest big-screen fairy tale "Maleficent" has two things going for it, and those are enough. The first is a lean run-time of 97 minutes (closer to 90 without end credits). The second, a commanding star turn from Oscar-winner Angelina Jolie, whose less-is-more approach should serve as a tutorial in exactly how to be a modern-day movie star. May 30, 2014 8:50 AM PT

Hollywood Playbook: Thursday's Top 5 News Items

The cable news ratings are out for the month of May. For left-wing CNN, the news was especially bad. The sinking network continue its sink. Fox News is not only humiliating CNN, things are so bad at the former-most trusted name in news that almost every CNN program is losing the ratings race to a Fox News show that airs at 3 a.m.: "RedEye with Greg Gutfeld."

CNN: Economy Shrinking 'No Big Deal'

CNN's left-wing bias appears to know no bounds. Even though the economy shrinking by a full 1% in the first quarter of 2014 means very real pain for very real people living in a very real economy that has remained flat for going on 6 long years, in order to save President Obama from a tough news cycle, CNN would like everyone to know that a shrinking economy is "no big deal."

May Ratings: CNN Firmly Back In the Basement

CNN's obsessive exploitation of the tragic disappearance of 227 souls on board Malaysia Airlines Flight 370 did, for a time, manage to pull the left-wing network out of its ratings freefall, but that all ended in the month of May when CNN crash-landed right back into third place behind MSNBC and way behind Fox News.

Economy Shrinks 1% in First Quarter

The Bureau of Economic Analysis released its revised assessment of the first quarter of 2014's Gross Domestic Product and revised it down to -1%. The initial assessment said the economy had at least grown, but only by .01%. May 29, 2014 5:44 AM PT

'Springtime In The Rockies' (1942) Review: THE Fox Musical

If I had to choose the one title that best represents this films series, it would unquestionably be 1942's "Springtime In the Rockies." Irvin Cummings, who would direct nearly a half-dozen of these, was the director. What really sets it apart, though, is a cast that includes almost that entire stable and a perfect soundtrack of songs courtesy of the stars, and instrumentals supplied by trumpeter and band leader Harry James, who plays himself.

Hollywood Vulture Capitalists Screw Union Musicians to Chase Overseas Corporate Welfare

These unions are victims of a wildly hypocritical industry that for decades has used every ounce of its considerable political muscle -- money, star-power, and product -- to bludgeon the rest of America with bullshit propaganda about the wickedness of greedy capitalism, about income inequality, about how higher taxes are good for the economy, and that old saw: businesses evil/unions noble.

Hollywood Playbook: Wednesday's Top 5 News Items

Paramount should immediately grab the man who directed "The Hunt for Red October" to salvage the Jack Ryan franchise, which faltered badly with "Shadow Recruit." Hell, Fox could surely use the director of "Die Hard" and "Die Hard: With a Vengeance" to give that bloodless franchise a swift kick. And then there's the "Predator" franchise… May 28, 2014 9:20 AM PT

Michelle Obama - Lawmaker: CNN's Costello Embarrasses Herself … Again

CNN's Carol Costello, America's worst morning anchor since Soledad O'Brien disappeared into the money-hole of Al Jazeera America, is at it again. After telling her viewers last week that Climate Change is real because it's in the Bible (no, really), yesterday the far-left anchor told her viewers that First Lady Michelle Obama signs bills into law, specifically the Healthy Hunger Free Kids Act.

'McLintock!' Bluray Review: Feminists Beware - John Wayne Tames a Shrew

"McLintock!" is a based loosely on Shakespeare's comedy "The Taming of the Shrew," and is definitely not for joyless Leftists or feminists with heart conditions who are almost certain to miss the strength and nuance in O'Hara's sly performance (who's really manipulating who?) or pause over today's endless supply of Hollywood offerings where men are treated as evil or buffoons.

WaPo Critic Blames White Male Hollywood for Santa Barbara Rampage

What in the world was Ann Hornaday thinking with this anti-science tripe that attempts to blame Seth Rogen's "Neighbors" and Judd Apatow films for the actions of 22 year-old Elliot Rodger, the confessed killer who went on a shooting/stabbing rampage in Santa Barbara over the weekend.

Hollywood Playbook: Tuesday's Top 5 News Items

Does the Bible promote sex and violence? There is plenty of sex and violence in the New and Old Testaments -- but of course not. Other than exploring actual history, the sex and violence in the Bible is used as a device to promote a positive message. I'm certainly not comparing the Rogen/Apatow canon to the Bible, but the message in those films is the exact opposite of the nihilism and narcissism that seemed such a large part of what drove Rodger.
