Election Movies To Watch

8 November 2016 7:44 AM, PST | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

– By We Are Movie Geeks Staff –

Our long election season is finally coming to an end, and all that remains is to vote. And watch an election-themed movie!

Going through the list of movies about elections, the Movie Geeks found a lot more negative than positive ones, and more movies about manipulative people behind the candidate than inspiring candidates. While there is a lot of biting social commentary and satire, there are a few light and silly election movies too. So top cap off election season, here are a dozen election and political movies.

Don’t forget to vote!

The Campaign

Jay Roach, director of the true story political HBO filmsRecount” and “Game Change”, goes for the big laughs in this farce about a lazy, scandal-ridden incumbent congressman Cam Brady (Will Ferrell) who faces off against a bumbling, naive altruistic Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis). This comic gem captures all the election craziness, »

Hugh O’Brian, Star of TV’s ‘The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,’ Dies at 91

5 September 2016 11:18 AM, PDT | Variety - TV News | See recent Variety - TV News news »

Hugh O’Brian, who starred in the long-running series “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,” died Monday. He was 91.

The actor died peacefully in his Beverly Hills home, according to a statement from Hugh O’Brian Youth Leadership.

ABC Western “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp,” in which the exceedingly handsome, muscular O’Brian starred as the title character, ran for 221 episodes from 1955-61. At the time he was one of television’s great male sex symbols.

In 1957 he was nominated for an Emmy for best continuing performance by an actor in a dramatic series for his work on “The Life and Legend of Wyatt Earp.”

So popular and so much a part of popular culture was O’Brian that he showed up as Earp, uncredited, in the 1959 Bob Hope Western comedy “Alias Jesse James,” as well as in the 1960 TV movie “The Secret World of Eddie Hodges”; when the actor guested on “Make Room for Daddy” in »

Top Ten Tuesday – Top Ten White People Doing The Right Thing

30 August 2016 3:11 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

I think everyone in this country should be aware by now that our race relations are at an all time low.  It seems every time we hear the news another black citizen has been shot by the police or police have been shot by someone angry about these shootings.  It cannot continue.  We as a nation cannot keep going down this road.

I have always sympathized with Black Americans.  In fact as a Scot and Irish American I have always sympathized with anyone who ever got pushed around, starting with Native Americans, Asians, Jewish immigrants, women of any ethnic group, Hispanics from any country.

I also sympathize with the people who are tasked with law enforcement.  It’s a tough job.  I had some training in that area.  A couple of years ago I was hired by a Security company and was trained in unarmed, and armed, uniformed security.   I »

How Roald Dahl's Granddaughter Sophie Helped Inspire The Bfg - and More Secrets Behind the Children's Classic

30 June 2016 4:50 PM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

Writing a book, British children's author Roald Dahl once explained, is "rather like going on a very long walk, across valleys and mountains and things, and you get the first view of what you see and you write it down. Then you walk a bit further, maybe up on to the top of a hill, and you see something else, then you write that and you go on like that, day after day, getting different views of the same landscape. The highest mountain on the walk is obviously the end of the book because it's got to be the best view of all, »

Earl Hamner Jr., the creator and narrator of CBS’ beloved, long-running family drama “The Waltons,” died Thursday in Los Angeles. He was 92 and had been diagnosed with cancer in June 2014, according to a Facebook post by his daughter.

She wrote: “I want to thank each and every one of you for your prayers, good wishes and kind thoughts – I can assure you that they sustained Dad and helped him to recover enough to proudly witness the final production of ‘Earl Hamner: Storyteller’, become the honored recipient of the Will Geer Theatricum Botanicum Humanitarian Award, and accept Media Heritage Founder’s Award. There is not a doubt in my mind that he would not have made it this far without you — and we had the good fortune to keep him in our lives a bit longer despite the odds against him.

Snyder To Adapt Ayn Rand's "Fountainhead"

17 March 2016 2:12 PM, PDT | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

A week ahead of the release of "Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice," a new feature piece about the film's director Zack Snyder and his wife and producing partner Debra Snyder has gone online over at THR.

The most surprising bit of news in the whole piece though comes when the pair are asked about what other projects they're developing outside the DC cinematic universe. It seems Snyder is working on a film adaptation of "Atlas Shrugged" author Ayn Rand's other most famous work - "The Fountainhead". Zack says:

"We have The Last Photograph that I've been working on for a long time. It's a small, sort of weird project about a war photogra­pher in Afghanistan. I have been working on The Fountainhead. I've always felt like The Fountainhead was such a thesis on the creative process and what it is to create something. Warner Bros. owns [Ayn Rand's] script »

Richard DeNeut, ‘Our Gang’ Actor and Globe Photos West Coast Chief, Dies at 84

29 January 2016 2:09 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Richard DeNeut, who appeared in Hal Roach’s “Our Gang” comedies but eventually became West Coast bureau chief for Globe Photos, died at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles on Tuesday from a combination of pneumonia, kidney disease and congestive heart failure. He was 84.

DeNeut was keenly interested in the movie industry — films, stars, directors, award winners — and eagerly predicted and critiqued each year’s Oscar winners, and over time, became involved in various book projects, including “Inside Hollywood” (Könemann, 2001), a large-scale compendium of treasures from Globe’s photo archives.

He maintained a decades-long friendship with Dolores Hart, who abandoned her acting career for the cloistered life of a Benedictine nun. DeNeut became a frequent guest at the Abbey of Regina Laudis in Bethlehem, Conn., working with Reverend Mother Dolores in developing the Patricia Neal autobiography “As I Am” (1977), and later on Mother Dolores’ own memoir, “The Ear of the »

Patricia Neal on life, death and Roald Dahl: archive, 6 Jan 1971

6 January 1971: ‘She laughs with a barmaid vitality that never suggests the way life has mauled her’

Patricia Neal obituary, 9 August 2010

Two giant stone eagles claw the lawn outside Patricia Neal’s house in Great Missenden, Buckinghamshire. They stand by the glasshouse where her writer-husband, Roald Dahl, grows his orchids, just before you reach the indoor swimming pool. “I bought them in Texas when I was making ‘Hud’,” said Miss Neal. “They’re pretty terrific.” Inside the house, a brassier echo of remembrance is chimed by the Oscar statuette she won for making the same film.

“I suppose you could say that those were the days,” she said, looking at its junk-stall incongruity among the pictures by Francis Bacon and Matthew Smith. “Producers seem to fight shy of me now, since I had my stroke. I’ve only made two films in the five years since it happened. I can’t blame anybody, »
