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

Follow the Yellow Brick Road Back to 'Oz'

Could Mila Kunis Be a Sign of Hollywood Hope and Change?

Most of our work on this site involves pointing out the shocking bias, political and economic ignorance, and general bad behavior of Hollywood movers and shakers. Imagine my shock, surprise and glee to run across this excerpt from a recent

Unlike Obama, Charlie Sheen Really is 'Winning the Future'

At the State of the Union address, our President attempted to recapture the magic of “Yes, We Can” by coining the phrase “Win the Future.” His path to victory included high speed rails, more wealth redistribution, more powerful unions, and

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

2010 in Music and Movies: Not the Worst Year Ever

It seems that the consensus is that 2010 was the worst year ever for movies and music. That is, until 2011 comes to an end. Every year is “the worst.” I mean, really, what came out in 2007 that was

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

Hollywood Feminism: It's About the Individual, Not Gender

A lot of fun and exciting things happened recently related to feminism and the role of women in American society. The always brilliant Camille Paglia published her awesome take down of Lady Gaga and the end of the Sexual Revolution.

Cameron Thinks 'Avatar' is a Franchise. Film Geek Says 'No!'

Power up your TARDIS, turn on your lightsaber, and set your phasers to stun because we are about to geek out kids. Not content with making over $2 billion worldwide, James Cameron is re-releasing “Avatar” in theaters. Supposedly, a lot

RACISM: Mel Gibson May Rant But Leftist Hollywood Believes…

Apparently Mel Gibson had another racist meltdown. This time instead of blaming Jews for everything, he dropped an unfortunate “N-bomb” while berating his Russian baby mama. This is sad. It’s sad because Mel Gibson clearly has some issues. Racism is

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

BOOK REVIEW: Greg Gutfeld's 'Bible of Unspeakable Truths'

A few weeks back, Big Hollywood editor John Nolte asked me for my address. He wanted to send me an advanced copy of Greg Gutfeld’s new book “The Bible of Unspeakable Truths.” I thought “sweet, free book.” But if you’ve

Ms. Magazine Trashes 'Iron Man 2': No Wonder America Loves It

For most of the American Revolution, the bold patriots who demanded liberty were at a disadvantage. It’s easy to look back now and talk about how we won our independence, but we must always remember that the outcome was not

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).

A 'Wall Street' Sequel?: What Will Make Socialists Shut Up?

Yawn. “Wall Street 2.” Yeah, I liked the first one. Michael Douglas is awesome in that movie and pretty much everything he does. I mean, who else could rock the V-neck sweater with no T-shirt like he did in “Basic

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.

REVIEW: 'Avatar' Proves James Cameron's a Secret Conservative

So I saw Avatar. I dug the CGI and thought the 3D was cool. As always, James Cameron delivers with the action sequences. Sam Worthington is really likable. Sigourney Weaver is good as always. Michelle Rodriguez kicks ass, which is

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

The Remakes, Reboots, Ripoffs, and Re-imaginings of Politics

Actor and comedian Sammy Petrillo passed away over the weekend. Who is Sammy Petrillo? Good question. I wasn’t familiar with him either when I heard the news, but after a few minutes on Al Gore’s Internet I found out a
