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.

How Wrong Is The History Channel About Stalin? Let's Count the Ways...

Whether politically motivated or just looking for an intriguing tagline, the History Channel's claim that "World War I made Stalin a man and World War II made him a tyrant" is absolutely, 100% factually wrong in every which-around-way you want to look at it. May 24, 2014 7:13 AM PT

Hollywood Playbook: Friday's Top 5 News Items

My knee can jerk against conventional/trendy/establishment/go-along-to-get-along cowardly thinking in a way that's every bit as thoughtless as The Mob's knee jerk the other way. But In the mid-aughts, after the Oprah incident, that wasn't the case with me. I was legitimately baffled by the backlash against Cruise. May 23, 2014 10:40 AM PT

'X-Men: Days of Future Past' Review: Delivers For Fanboys and The Casual Fan

The first hour or so of 'X-Men: Says of Future Past' is inspired, the best of the franchise and about as good as any superhero film you will ever see. The final hour is a bit of a letdown, especially after the virtuosity of the first, but between the big action set-pieces and a ton of cameos, no one will leave disappointed. May 23, 2014 7:03 AM PT

Another Reason Reid Can Smear the Kochs with Impunity: The Media Love It

If the Supreme Court won't ban the media's competition, then it's time to try and marginalize this influence using whatever means necessary. This is exactly what Harry Reid is doing and the media are letting him get away with it because they have a shared goal. And the tactic to accomplish this goal is nothing short of McCarthyism.

'Lone Survivor' Blu-ray Review: A War Film Our Vets, Allies, and Enemies Deserve

Director Peter Berg takes his time getting us to this point, and you don't mind. He wants to give you a tour of the SEAL subculture and an opportunity to get to know the four men we will spend most of the movie with. This pipe-laying is absolutely necessary if we're to be emotionally invested in 70- minutes that follow -- minutes so well-crafted and intense you have to remind yourself to breathe.
