Will 'Apes' End the Box Office Summer Slump -- Probably Not

There had been some artificial excitement being ginned up in the media over the potential box office for "Dawn of the Planet of the Apes," which hit theatres Thursday night (and is very good). After grossing a moderately impressive $4.1 million Thursday night, though, the kind of over-performance Hollywood needs to break the Summer Slump now appears unlikely. Jul 11, 2014 12:51 PM PT

Poll: Women Evenly Split on Hobby Lobby Decision

Though we have been assured the Supreme Court's Hobby Lobby decision is a winning War on Women issue for Democrats just 4 months out from the midterm elections, the poll shows that in reality women are split on the issue, with only 46% disapproving of the Court decision, while 43% approve.

'Dawn of the Planet of the Apes' Review: Exciting, Tense & Pro-Human

Whereas "Rise" was a highly political (but still very good) film that took a dim view of the human species as a whole, the pharmaceutical industry, greedy businessmen, and the competency of San Francisco law enforcement officers, "Dawn" is the exact opposite. The story chooses theme over politics and those themes will surprise fans of a series that has tended to skew left. Jul 11, 2014 7:44 AM PT

'Planet of the Apes' Flicks Ranked Best to Worst

Although three years have passed, I'm still embarrassed and apologizing to 20th Century-Fox for my strident assumptions regarding the 2011 reboot of my beloved "Planet of the Apes" franchise. I was certain it would all collapse in a pile of hyper-CGI'd fail and made no secret of my prediction. Was I ever wrong. Jul 10, 2014 1:13 PM PT

'Unbroken' Trailer: Director Angelina Jolie Delivers Faith, Patriotism

The second trailer for director Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" just dropped and it smells like a winner. The film is based on a best-selling book about the real-life Louis Zamperini, an American Olympian, WWII Japanese POW, devout Christian and inspirational speaker. Jul 10, 2014 10:01 AM PT

Redford Will Use 'Truth' to Resurrect Dan Rather's Reputation

Per the Hollywood Reporter, Oscar-winner Robert Redford has agreed to portray disgraced newsman Dan Rather in an adaptation of the 2005 memoir "Truth and Duty: The Press, the President, and the Privilege of Power."

Bush. Jul 10, 2014 8:59 AM PT

Border Crisis: What Glenn Beck Did Wrong

Beck's desire to help kids caught in a geopolitical crossfire through no fault of their own is laudable. We all want to help. I've yet to hear anyone argue that it's wrong to use American taxpayer dollars to feed, house, and offer medical care to these children. No one opposes that. The problem isn't what Beck did. The problem is how he did it. Jul 10, 2014 8:15 AM PT

Battered wife media syndrome returned to the spotlight this week when 38 journalism groups, led by the Society of Professional Journalists, complained to the Obama White House about numerous offenses that were summed up as the "politically-driven suppression of news." Jul 9, 2014 12:02 PM PT

'The View': Mean, Dumb Rosie Returns?

If Rosie O'Donnell does return to ABC's "The View," it will certainly mark the beginning of the end of a long-running show that is obviously desperate and out of ideas. Jul 9, 2014 8:59 AM PT

Christopher Nolan: People Will Always Go To the Movies

In an op-ed for the Wall Street Journal, the world's greatest working director argues that as hard as the corporations who run Hollywood will try, technology will not kill films as an art form or the love of going to the movies. Jul 9, 2014 8:49 AM PT

First Look - Trailer for Ridley Scott's 'Exodus: Gods and Kings'

One of the primary problems today's filmmakers face with any swords and sandals epic is finding present-day actors that look believable in ancient times. With his two leads, director Ridley Scott seems to have overcome that in "Exodus: Gods and Kings" (Dec. 20). Jul 9, 2014 8:38 AM PT

The Hobby Lobby Reversal: Feminists Now Want Government in Their Vaginas

In our increasingly polarized country there has always been one character trait I could respect in anyone despite any political or cultural differences. If all someone wanted in life was to be the left the hell alone, I admired that. Some of my friends on the political right wonder how it is I can admire Muhammad  Ali, Malcolm X, most of Robert Redford's screen characters, Thelma and Louise, and the characters of Wyatt and Billy in director Dennis Hopper's "Easy Rider."

Investors Say They Have Evidence of Paramount Pictures Financing Fraud

This might not be the case for these particular investors, but many wealthy investors involved in Hollywood ignore smarter investments in favor of Tinseltown because those millions of dollars are a golden ticket into the glamorous lifestyle, parties, film shoots, drug-fueled orgies, and barely legal starlet-wannabes.

Buyers of Hillary's 'Hard Choices' Aren't Reading It

According to an unscientific metric used to gauge how far Kindle readers make it into a book they have purchased, even the very few people who have purchased Hillary Clinton's lousy-selling "Hard Choices" aren't bothering to read it. Jul 8, 2014 10:24 AM PT
