Ground zero for romantic comedy evil

Irin at Jezebel has a post up making fun of Hollywood, because there are two movies and one television show in production called “Friends With Benefits”, demonstrating the perennial problem of trend-chasing and lack of imagination in the entertainment industry. Why oh why is this suddenly the hot topic in…

Why “Inglourious Basterds” should win Best Picture….and why it won’t

To make it clear, I haven’t seen all the movies nominated for Best Picture Oscar, so it’s entirely possible that one is better than “Inglourious Basterds”. But I’ll admit I’m skeptical, if only because “Basterds” one of the best movies I’ve seen in a very long time. So I’m going…

Your Irony Of The Day

Big Hollywood, the site that was set up to protest the silencing of conservative voices by the McCarthyite Hollywood left, has banned me for posting critical comments. Not profane, not threatening, just critical. I don’t even have a mansion to go home and host a dinner party in. Dammit. UPDATE:…

It’s like assembling the greatest minds of the Renaissance to…

Spider-Man 3, a pro-American, pro-responsibility film with deeply Christian overtones topped the box office in 2007. 300, which said a lot that needed to be said about…

Vampires, liberals, and blood-sucking pretend liberals

Pam’s post below about the color-arousing tactics post-Prop 8 links what may or may not be the most disingenuous piece of writing I’ve ever read that wasn’t a literary experiment with an unreliable narrator. I say “may not”, because I’m only on my second cup of coffee and my mind…

Reduction Ad Concussio

I’m sure we’re all familiar with the logical fallacy reductio ad absurdum, wherein a position from which an absurd outcome can be derived is rendered invalid because it led to an absurd conclusion. Hollywood conservatives have now invented reductio ad concussio, wherein any commentary on conservatives in Hollywood which sounds…
