Follow the Yellow Brick Road Back to 'Oz'

Usually for this site, I’m charged with pointing out offensive things or analyzing the latest stupid comment from this celebrity or that celebrity.  That’s why it gives me great pleasure and satisfaction to do the exact opposite, and give you

The Curious Case of Free-Thinking Film Critic Armond White

If you don’t know who Armond White is, you’re missing out. Dubbed the “Internet Troll” of movie critics, the eloquent and controversial critic for the New York Press recently received mainstream attention after his performance as the host for the

ET Meets the UN

The United Nations announced that they have appointed an ambassador to handle the potential (inevitable?) contact with alien life forms. Should aliens land on planet Earth, they will be greeted by Mazian Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist. The reaction to the

Taxpayer Funding for the Arts Corrupts the Arts

I’m sure you’ve heard about the Juan Williams/NPR debacle. You may also know that Senator Jim DeMint has vowed to introduce legislation that will deprive NPR, as well as public television, of taxpayer funds. It seems that in this political

Peter Jackson vs. The Unions

So my good friends, the labor unions, have decided to pick a fight with Peter Jackson and his upcoming production of “The Hobbit.” Of course, they are not my good friends, I say that sarcastically. Unions in general are bad

The Deal With Tax Credits For Filmmakers

A lot has been written about state tax credit programs on this site and many others. I’ve produced and/or directed seven feature films that have used state tax credits as part of their financing structure. I feel it necessary to

Miley's & Christina's 'Edgy' New Videos Are a Bore

Have you seen the new music videos by Miley Cyrus and Christina Aguilera? If you haven’t, let me save you nine minutes of precious time. Both videos feature the young, attractive, talented singers clad in lingerie dancing, gyrating and engaging

About My 'Hit Girl' Review….

The dream of every young filmmaker is to have one of their cinematic idols watch their work and respond positively. Nothing would make me happier than to get that praising phone call from Steven Spielberg (pre-“Munich” Spielberg of course). So

The True Lessons of 'Geico-Gate'

Last week a rather odd story broke on Big Government and Big Hollywood. The voice-over guy for Geico, D.C. Douglas, was fired after he left a voicemail with Freedomworks. On the voicemail he called Tea Partiers homicidal retards. My first

'Kick-Ass' Is the Quintessential Libertarian Film

I wasn’t really surprised to see a lot of negative comments here on a recent review of the film “Kick-Ass.” An eleven-year old-girl cursing and firing a Glock 20 into the faces of mob thugs isn’t exactly for everybody. I

The American Revolution…REBOOTED!

If I had a dollar for every time some tool during the health care debate brought up how “we’re the only industrialized” nation in the world without socialized health care I’d have a lot of money. Why, I could even

Sarah Palin: The Horror Movie

I make horror movies for a living. I’ve produced, written or directed zombie movies, werewolf movies, alien invasion movies, vampire movies, serial killer movies, freaky Frankenstein movies and yes, a film about giant, mutant whooping cranes (links may be NSFW).

ONE YEAR GONE: George W. Bush…Idiot.

One year ago today President Bush left the White House. It’s been said before, but I think on this anniversary it bears repeating. George W. Bush is an idiot. That’s right. He’s a dolt. A moron. A cowboy. An anti-intellectual.

2009's Idiots of the Year!

The end of the year brings us all sorts of fun “best of” lists and annual “awards”. We have “The Best Films of 2009”, “The Worst Films of 2009”, “The Most Intriguing People”, the “Sexiest” and “Worst Dressed”. Time magazine

The Hidden Truth Behind 'V'

Like many conservatives, I was intrigued and excited by the promos for ABC’s reboot of one of my favorite mini-series, “V.” Finally, we thought, one of us had infiltrated the system and slipped one by the hippies who run Hollywood.

Debating Leftists is Like Debating Charles Manson

Keith Olbermann’s recent hour-long commentary was quite revealing. Like Michael Moore’s “capitalism hasn’t done anything for me” comment, the outpouring of support and sympathy for serial pedophile and admitted rapist Roman Polanski, and President Obama’s shenanigans at the U.N. and

School Kid Videos: Creepy Obama Worship

“…if the left wants to discredit charges of Socialism, Communism, Nazism and Fascism; they should really think about not emulating Fascist, Communist, Socialist and Nazi regimes.” I recently saw the first video of the school kids singing the Barack Obama

The NEA: Defending the Indefensible

It was so much fun watching the ACORN people try and spin their way out of oblivion for the last couple of weeks. After the first video was posted on Big Government.com they, of course, claimed it was an isolated

Ladies of the ACORN Video I Will Hire You

I just found out that the two women featured on the undercover ACORN video posted on our sister site Big Government were fired by the community organizing group. This is really good news. First, it proves that the ridiculously funny

Van Jones: Out of the Commie Closet — Who's Next?

I may be the only Jeffersonian Republican to admit this, but former Obama adviser Van Jones should be congratulated. Van Jones has done a great, amazing service for millions of Americans. Van Jones is a hero. In addition to having

Mr. President, Please Don't Bogart the Blunt

After a long day at work on a commercial shoot, I decided to unwind with a little internet and cable television. Politics and punditry are my hobby, not my main source of income, so I indulge in a little cable

In Defense of Katherine Heigl

The London Times recently ran an article about Katherine Heigl and her comments indicating that the ire directed at her by the press (especially the Internet) is the result of sexism. The article wasn’t particularly enlightening, but it did call

Has Liberalism Jumped the Shark?

The term “Jump the Shark” has been with us for a while. The clever metaphor is used for the moment when something of cultural significance begins to lose its luster, and descends into lameness. It is a reference to the

'Torchwood': Pro-American TV — From the BBC

I think I’ve found the most pro-American show on television. True to form, its not produced in Hollywood. Growing up, I was obsessed with “Dr. Who.” In the seventh grade I wore a Tom Baker style scarf to school every

Kill Polar Bears, Drink Coke to Save the Planet!

Everybody knows that Global Warming is real. The debate is over. No one with any real common sense would dare challenge the fact that human CO2 production is directly related to rises in temperature. To save the earth from massive
