Cheap-Labor Lobby Funds New H-1B Song-and-Dance Movie

Movie theaters around the country are screening a glamorous new movie about a struggling-yet-handsome Indian H-1B contract-worker in the United States — but viewers aren’t told that the movie was funded by lobbyists to help import more foreign workers for the moviegoers’ own white-collar jobs.

‘F*ck You Ben Carson’: Backlash Explodes Against ‘Racist’ Seth Rogen, ‘Steve Jobs’ Film

On the eve of the release of Universal’s “Steve Jobs,” star Seth Rogen fired off a hate-tweet at black Republican presidential candidate Ben Carson. “Fuck you @realBenCarson,” the tweet said. In another tweet, Rogen, a high-profile Hillary Clinton supporter (and Canadian citizen), expressed his anger over comments Carson made about gun control and Nazi Germany.

Drug War Horrors—and Complexities—Come to Grisly Life in ‘Sicario’

Make no mistake; the new thriller in theaters called Sicario is no documentary-style production of the drug war in Mexico. It’s a movie like any other, with its exaggerations and stylistic decisions. But what makes Sicario one of the better representations of the reality that is cartel violence on both sides of the border is that it’s accurate enough to be believable—even to those well-versed in the tiniest details of this endless war.

Juárez Mayor Forgets City’s Violent History in Absurd ‘Sicario’ Film Lawsuit Plans

As Breitbart Texas recently reported, Enrique Serrano Escobar, the mayor of Ciudad Juárez, Mexico (just south of El Paso, Texas) stated he aims to sue the makers of the fiction film “Sicario” in a U.S. court for “moral damages” to the city. Escobar said the movie depicts violent incidents that don’t currently reflect the city, telling Mexico’s El Norte newspaper, “It hurts the image of Juarenses.” However, Escobar seems to have forgotten that Cuidad Juárez is still host to two major drug cartels and over 400 street gangs.

Wall Street: DreamWorks Animation One Flop From Extinction

In the wake of yet another flop and hundreds of layoffs, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg announced a dramatic restructuring and refocus of his teetering company (and legacy). Seeking to reassure Wall Street, Katzenberg said DWA will reduce its annual

‘Selma’ Review: Solid But Unspectacular

Director Ava DuVarney’s third feature film is impressive on many levels. Yet, given its potent subject matter, other than a few scenes, “Selma” is emotionally flat and uninspiring. This is especially surprising in the wake of the George Zimmerman and

‘Taken 3’ Review: Dull Story, Dreadful Action Scenes

About twenty-minutes into director Olivier Megaton’s “Taken 3” I had a truly terrifying experience: a “Quantum of Solace” flashback. A poorly scripted action movie can sometimes be redeemed by the action scenes. Until the dreadful “Quantum,” this had always been

‘Selma’ Under Fire for Dishonest Trashing of Lyndon Johnson

The stakes are pretty high for “Selma,” a historical biopic about the landmark 1965 civil rights march that focuses on the relationship between civil rights leader Martin Luther King and President Lyndon Johnson. Even before it hit screens, the critically-acclaimed

‘Boyhood’ Review: Impressive But Wildly Overrated

Writer/director Richard Linklater certainly deserves credit for pulling off an audacious experiment. Filmed over 12 years using the same actors (child and adult), “Boyhood” is a coming-of-age drama unlike anything we’ve seen before. Respect all around. Hats off. The movie
