Thanks Europe, for the lectures on gun control! Now go f### yourself!

Thanks Europe, for the lectures on gun control! Now go f### yourself!

Thank God we have liberals, Hollywood celebrities and Europeans to lecture us on how backward American society is and gun control every time there is a gun tragedy here! They could wait until at least the next day to politicize a tragedy, but thankfully they feel compelled to lecture the country as a whole not [...]

‘Babadook’ and ‘It Follows’ owe Mr. Freddy Krueger

‘Babadook’ and ‘It Follows’ owe Mr. Freddy Krueger

Well, at least Hollywood is just about done remaking every horror film ever made in the 70′s and 80′s. Just kidding. It’s moving on to the third stage, where it remakes even the remakes. Even now, New Line Cinemas is working on a new reboot of the horror classic A Nightmare on Elm Street just five years after Jackie Earle Haley was tried [...]

Trump and Clinton down; Fiorina, Sanders, Carson up

Trump and Clinton down; Fiorina, Sanders, Carson up

Last week’s Republican debate was fascinating, to be sure. The first wave of accurate polling after the contest is starting to roll in, and we can now talk about the debate with some seemingly reliable polling to back it up. From the main debate we didn’t think there would be a heckuva lot of movement by [...]

Politics this summer have been anything but boring

Politics this summer have been anything but boring

Boy, summer is usually kind of a slow time for politics, but the summer of 2015 has been anything but. Hillary Clinton looked almost inevitable six months or so ago, now she looks so vulnerable Democrats are clamoring for Joe Biden to get into the race.  We wrote off Bernie Sanders when he announced his run [...]

Can ‘Zoolander 2′ really turn out to be even fairly good?

Can ‘Zoolander 2′ really turn out to be even fairly good?

Okay, up front I’ll tell you I’m not the biggest fan of Ben Stiller. He’s done some good work and come up with some great ideas, but pretty sure the guy never would have made it in Hollywood without his famous parents. He’s struck out with a ton of movies, and most aspiring Hollywood types probably wouldn’t have [...]

Rocky Balboa pound-for-pound remains one of the greatest boxers ever

Rocky Balboa pound-for-pound remains one of the greatest boxers ever

Rocky Balboa is a fictional character so revered it’s almost like he’s a real person. A statue sits at the bottom of the iconic steps people constantly run up in Philadelphia–although tourists usually understandably skip the miles Rocky runs while training before he reaches said stairs in the first movie. My I-Pod still has songs from [...]

Hillary Clinton has an abrupt 180 on ‘sanctuary cities’

Hillary Clinton has an abrupt 180 on ‘sanctuary cities’

Recently in San Francisco an illegal immigrant and seven-time convicted felon who had been deported several times, Francisco Sanchez, murdered a woman on a San Francisco pier. San Francisco is a so-called “sanctuary city,” a city that generally does not actively work to enforce federal immigration laws. Sanchez says he came to San Francisco because [...]

GDP by the numbers, from Carter to Obama

GDP by the numbers, from Carter to Obama

Jeb Bush recently attacked Barack Obama’s “zombie economy” and promised around 4% annual economic growth if he’s elected president. Can he do it? Is it really a realistic goal? And exactly how does Obama’s performance growing the economy stack up with other modern presidents? Don’t bother with the spin from both parties, we have the [...]

Trailer Tuesday: London falls, Heigl goes for girls

Trailer Tuesday: London falls, Heigl goes for girls

London Has Fallen is the sequel to Olympus Has Fallen, starring Gerard Butler. The first movie did fairly well, making just under $100 million domestically. A good amount of the cast who didn’t die in the first movie return, including Butler, Aaron Eckhart, Angela Bassett, Morgan Freeman and Melissa Leo. The movie has a release [...]

Another crash and NASCAR ‘got what they wanted’

Another crash and NASCAR ‘got what they wanted’

Heckuva crash early this morning in NASCAR. That’s right, early this morning–2:41 AM EDT in fact. Just as Dale Earnhardt, Jr. was winning a race as most Americans were asleep, a horrific crash occurred right behind him. Austin Dillon, the driver of the #3 car, flew in the air and into the fence just as [...]
