Bad Movies and Robert De Niro (and Why Donald Trump Is Not Literally Hitler)

  In March 1975, Robert De Niro was 31 years old when he won the Oscar for Best Supporting Actor for his breakthrough role as young Vito Corleone in The Godfather, Part II. Leslie Mann was barely 3 years old at the time, and there was something distinctly weird about Mann, now 44, being cast […]

Lena Dunham Declares White Women Need ‘Enlightening’ by Feminists

  Pudgy tattoo-covered multimillionaire liar Lena Dunham did an interview on ABC’s The View, explaining what’s wrong with women: “I think it’s really important to remember that it is an incredible problem that . . . 53% of white women in this country voted for Donald Trump which means that they’re not only voting against the […]

Star and Co-Writer of Slave Revolt Movie Were Accused of Raping Girl in College

Nate Parker (left) and Jean Celestin (right) were Penn State wrestling teammates. A much-praised new movie about an 1831 slave revolt, which had been considered a possible Oscar contender, is in trouble because of revelations that the film’s star and director was accused of raping an 18-year-old college student in 1999.

‘Especially as a Woman of Color’

  The left-wing Democrats who operate the educational bureaucracy in America have hammered the “social justice” mentality so deeply into the psyches of young people that they don’t even recognize it as a ideology. Unable to think except within the formulaic boundaries prescribed by political slogans — “Equality!” “Progress!” “Diversity!” — the 21st-century Progressive Youth […]

SJW ‘Ghostbusters’ Flops to No. 8

  The feminist remake of Ghostbusters has predictably failed at the box office. After opening at No. 2 its first weekend ($46 million gross in the U.S., behind The Secret Life of Pets), last weekend the ‘busters went bust, tumbling all the way to No. 5 ($21 million). This was a one-week decline of 54% […]

NBC’s New Sitcom: ‘Abortion Barbie’?

Hollywood liberalism beyond parody: Wendy Davis made national headlines in 2013 for filibustering anti-abortion legislation in the Texas Senate. Now the former Democratic state senator is poised for more national attention as the inspiration for a dramedy series in development at NBC. Written by Jennifer Cecil, the untitled project centers on a female Democratic senator […]

Social Justice, Matt Damon and the Hollywood Fantasy of Prostitution

Am I the only one who remembers what Hollywood did to Tom Clancy’s The Sum of All Fears? Clancy wrote a 1991 Cold War thriller that portrayed a terrorist collaboration between an East German nuclear physicist and Palestinian radicals. However, by the time it emerged as a movie in 2002, the cinematic arbiters of political […]

Feminists Chase ‘Avengers’ Director Off Twitter, Because … Gender Theory?

Let me explain something up front: Hollywood blockbusters are not made by conforming to people’s pet political theories. The target audience is 12-year-olds who want to see a lot of explosions and chase scenes and stuff like that. Yet the bottom-line calculations of box-office profit mean nothing to feminists: Avengers: Age of Ultron director Joss […]
