MSNBC has such a lame sense of humor, that host Lawrence O’Donnell spent an entire segment fact checking President Trump’s nickname “Pocahontas” which he calls Senator Elizabeth Warren after she lied about being Native American to get a job at Harvard University. Media analyst Mark Dice has the story. – Mark Dice
The 2017 MTV Move Awards went “Gender Neutral” this year, eliminating different categories for men and women, because that’s not being very inclusive. Emma Watson and gender non-binary actor Asia Kate Dillon will explain and media analyst Mark Dice has the story. – Mark Dice
Watch Anderson Cooper roll his eyes after he lost his cool when interviewing Kellyanne Conway about President Trump firing FBI Director James Comey. Media analyst Mark Dice has the story.
“The Circle,” based on the Dave Eggers novel, is as chilling as the most frightening horror movie — and yet the world depicted in the film is practically our world, just a tiny leap into the near future.
Directed by James Ponsoldt and adapted by Ponsoldt and Eggers, the movie tells the story of a young woman who goes to work at The Circle, a company that’s like a hellish cross among Facebook, Apple and Google.
Young Mae (Emma Watson) is thrilled to be welcomed onto the Circle campus. Everyone is so cool. Everyone is so friendly. And everything is so weird.
The place is run by its two founders, who, in an inspired bit of casting, are played by the inherently likable Tom Hanks and Patton Oswalt. What harm could those guys do?
Prince Of Foxes (film) is an Italian Renaissance tale of greed, assassinations, political conspiracy, violence and betrayal. Nothing has changed in 500 years. Orson Welles and Tyrone Power are fun to watch.
“The true story of Desmond Doss, the first conscientious objector to win the Medal of Honor, Hacksaw Ridge is about conflicts of many kinds: duty to God versus duty to country, individual freedom versus communal responsibility, healing versus killing, love versus hate, and so on. The film is also about an internal war, of course, as Doss (brilliantly played by Andrew Garfield) wrestles with maintaining his faith convictions amidst extraordinary pressures to compromise.
A devout Seventh-day Adventist, Doss joins the army during World War II in spite of his pacifist convictions and refusal to bear arms. He volunteers to be a medic, where he aspires to save lives rather than take them. Happy new year greetings His convictions make him unpopular in his unit. Fellow soldiers taunt him, beat him, and pressure him to quit, yet Doss is determined to serve his country as a medic, thrust into bloody battles without a weapon to defend himself.”
History is full of drama and conflict. A new movie illustrates a chapter of Civil War history when Mississippi citizens followed their conscience and used their limited guns to form a militia and pushback against slavery and economic injustice.
“I wrote The Free State of Jones: Mississippi’s Longest Civil War for professional and personal reasons. As both a historian and an individual, I am on the hunt for ordinary people who commit extraordinary acts. I am especially drawn to those who confront systems of power in unlikely ways alongside unlikely allies. In Civil War Jones County, Mississippi, deep in the so-called “solid” South, some 100 ordinary white farmers banded together to fight against the Confederate Army (a few of my distant kin were among them). Doing so earned them the label of outlaws. But outlaw means different things to different people. To pro-Confederate Mississippians, these were cowardly deserters. The core members of the Knight band, however, viewed themselves as principled Unionists.
In my book, I struggled against writing a “Great Man” history; I did not want to portray Newt Knight as the “Rambo” of Jones County dissent. Rather, I dug deep into historical records from NC, SC, GA, and MS, to uncover the cultural and class roots of those families who contributed the greatest number of participants in the Jones County uprising. I emphasized how earlier historical events—for example, the American Revolution and the opening of the Southwestern frontier—shaped attitudes toward authority and government among these plain folks of the Old South.”
Meet Dr. Cory Torgerson. Described as “one of Canada’s most talented and prominent cosmetic plastic surgeons, focusing on head, neck, and facial plastic surgery,” and described by me as “a guy I never would have imagined to make a parody video of anything, let alone that huge hit ‘Can’t Feel My Face’ by The Weeknd.”
Yet his video does just that, and it’s actually hilarious!
The video features patients before, during, and after cosmetic procedures, and features some incredible lyrics like “the Botox keeps me beautiful, I’ll stay forever young.”
