Many people are pointing to the destruction levelled by Hurricane Harvey (which caused record flooding in Houston) and Hurricane Irma (which left numerous Caribbean islands devastated as it barrels toward the Florida coastline) as an example of climate change. Former “Growing Pains” star Kirk Cameron, however, has a different theory. The outspoken evangelical Christian took […] »

Celebrities are saying some very interesting things in terms of the two back-to-back hurricanes that are causing much devastation in America and other parts of the world. Yesterday, Hunger Games star Jennifer Lawrence blamed Trump voters for the storm. Now, Kirk Cameron is claiming that God has reach down from the sky to teach us all a lesson in humility. While some are making Cameron out to look the fool, his comments are a lot more reasonable than what Jennifer Lawrence had to say. At least in an apocalyptic biblical sense.
Cameron believes he has Irma and Harvey all figured out. He claims to know why these hurricanes have arrived to rip millions of families from their homes. And he places the blame on humanity itself. The former teen heartthrob and star of 80s sitcom Growing Pains is now an evangelical Christian who has helped produce some very popular religious movies over the past decade. »
Many people are not happy with Kirk Cameron over some controversial comments he's made about the deadly hurricanes that have wreaked havoc inside and near the United States, namely the current Hurricane Irma. The Growing Pains alum and evangelical Christian actor recently took to Facebook, where he often posts vlogs, to give his take on the disasters. Hurricane Harvey killed 70 people and destroyed thousands of homes in the Houston area about two weeks ago, while Hurricane Irma, one of the strongest Atlantic storms ever recorded, has already killed at least 10 people in the Caribbean is headed towards southern Florida. "How should we look at two giant hurricanes coming back-to-back like this?" »
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday.
This week’s question: “The Book of Henry” has been assailed by critics. But let’s look beyond this particular reviled new release. What’s the worst movie you’ve ever reviewed?

It’s unfortunately not even a contest: “God’s Not Dead 2,” which I reviewed for Flavorwire and then wrote about it further for Thrillist. (The first movie is actually far worse, but I didn’t review it.) They’re actually not the worst-made movies I’ve seen, but as a Christian and a film critic, I find them so actively offensive and cynical that it’s somehow even more depressing. I didn’t derive any joy from the process, but it felt important that I write about it.

"I found out [that Alan died] in the evening, so I assumed the whole episode of what had happened with him happened in the evening, but I started to read and I realized it all happened around noon," Gold said, recalling that, around noon, she was heading out to meet her husband, Bobby, at his »

Last night my wife and I were talking about the episode of Growing Pains that featured Dana Plato. It was one where she was pressuring Mike (Kirk Cameron) to “do it” with her. We then looked her up and read about her tragic downfall to eventually drug/suicide death. We also remarked on Gary Coleman’s death. My wife than asked me about Willis and I said, “you mean Todd Bridges?” While I knew that Bridges was alive I hadn’t researched him in quite some time. My only recollection of him is a hilarious cameo he did in That’s My Boy
Not to Sound Condescending, But I’m Really Proud of Todd Bridges »
