Carolina Culture Warrior’s Hollywood Top 5
This is Hollywood Top 5, where I talk about the biggest stories surrounding Hollywood from a conservative perspective. Here are this week’s top stories.
5. Paramount Urges Texas Theatres to Cancel Showing of Team America: World Police
In yet another example of Hollywood’s recent cowardice regarding North Korea after Sony Pictures was hacked (resulting in that studio’s disgraceful decision to cancel the theatrical showing of the Seth Rogen comedy The Interview), Viacom-owned Paramount Pictures urged many local theaters based in Texas not to follow through their plans to show the 2004 film Team America: World Police in its place. The film, which was directed by South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, pokes fun at the now-deceased North Korean leader Kim Jong-il. The film received critical praise in its initial release.
It doesn’t get any lower than this. Disgraceful.
4. Reviews Are Brutal for Annie Remake
The review are in for the Politically Correct remake of the 1982 musical film, Annie. Boy is it being shunned, and it even got an abysmal 18% on Rotten Tomatoes. Joe Morgenstern of The Wall Street Journal wanted to describe the film’s “awfulness”, while Ronnie Scheib of Variety said it was “overblown” and “undernourished” just to name a few. Turns out even the movie critics were not going to take the PC trash anymore.
3. Trailer Released for Clint Eastwood’s American Sniper
The trailer has been released for the latest film from director Clint Eastwood, American Sniper. It features Bradlee Cooper as famed Navy SEAL sniper Chris Kyle. It doesn’t get released until next January, but it already got snubbed by the Golden Globes. Isn’t that fascinating? Patriotic movies like Lone Survivor and American Sniper get snubbed by liberal Hollywood while anti-Religious dreck like Philomena get honored.
2. Even Hollywood is Outraged at Sony’s Cowardly Decision
Turns out even a lot of Hollywood celebs, including Jimmy Fallon and Ben Stiller, are outraged at Sony’s decision to cancel the theatrical release of The Interview. You can look at all the Twitter posts they sent out expressing their outrage here.
1. Review for Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb Set for Tomorrow
Tomorrow, I will be reviewing the new family release from 20th Century Fox, Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb. The first film, which came out in 2006 (hard to believe, I know), was nothing but good clean fun for kids and adults alike that want to just escape from the stress of preparing for Christmas. The film will also be notable for being one of the last films to ever feature the late, great Robin Williams (R.I.P.) doing the comedy routine he did best. Robin, you will be missed.
Well, that’s Hollywood Top 5 this week, see you soon!
