Talk Show Hosts, Rejoice: Sarah Palin Says She May Enter the 2016 Election Fray

6 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

She’s baaaa-aaaack! (Kinda, sorta, maybe)

Sarah Palin is “seriously interested” in pursuing the White House in 2016 — and no, this isn’t the setup for a late-night monologue joke.

“You can absolutely say that I am seriously interested,” Palin told The Washington Post on Friday.

A day earlier, Palin expressed a similar sentiment to ABC News about possibly vying for the Republican presidential nomination. Not 24 hours had passed before she touched on the issue again, this time somewhat more forcefully.

Sundance: ‘Best of Enemies’ Shows Why Political Talk Has Gotten So Stupid

20 hours ago | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Documentary depicts intellectuals Gore Vidal and William F. Buckley inadvertently paving the way for today’s nitwit pundits

This year’s Sundance film festival has already seen a number of striking documentary films, including “The Hunting Ground,” “Cartel Land” and “What Happened, Miss Simone?” Another real standout and perhaps the most entertaining film of them all was “Best of Enemies,” a doc that premiered Friday about a series of 1968 debates between William F. Buckley Jr. and Gore Vidal.

Kid Rock defends American Sniper: "F**k you Michael Moore"

23 January 2015 8:36 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Kid Rock has defended American Sniper against its critics.

The singer hit out at Michael Moore and Seth Rogen in particular, after they criticised the Oscar-nominated film recently.

Moore initially criticised the movie for glorifying snipers, before later clarifying that there are aspects of it that he enjoyed.

Rogen also took issue with the Bradley Cooper movie, comparing it to the Nazi propaganda film-within-a-film in Inglourious Basterds.

Kid Rock wrote on his blog: "F**k you Michael Moore, you're a piece of s**t and your uncle would be ashamed of you."

Insulting both Moore and Rogen, he wrote: "I hope both of you catch a fist to the face soon."

The 44-year-old added: "God bless you Chris Kyle, Thank you for your service."

Sarah Palin has also defended the film and thanked producers Cooper and Clint Eastwood for "respecting the United States military".

Cooper has earned an Oscar nomination for portraying Chris Kyle, »

The Hype Cycle: Oscar Nominations One Week Removed

23 January 2015 6:32 AM, PST | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

One week removed from the Oscar nominations, we’re still recovering from #OscarsSoWhite-gate, and the consensus seems to be that if only the Legos were white instead of yellow they would’ve been nominated after all.

But really the conversation has started to move toward Hollywood rather than the Oscars, and how as a whole institution we can’t seem to find enough strong roles for women or blacks or other racial groups. The Oscars have a long history of snubbing deserving black people (just ask Spike Lee), so as Larry Wilmore said on his first broadcast of The Nightly Show, this isn’t really anything new.

What we do have is a not too bad list of nominees in a race that even at this late stage in the game is up for grabs. It’s a bit early to make final predictions, but we’ll start to know »

Sundance Review: Melissa Rauch Can't Salvage Unfunny 'The Bronze'

23 January 2015 12:48 AM, PST | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

For a comedy to work, the humor must be convincing within the established world of the film. Unfortunately, while Bryan Buckley's Sundance opener "The Bronze" has some emotional resonance, it comes up short on its most crucial ingredient: the laughs. Much of the hype surrounding "The Bronze" ahead of its Sundance premiere centered on comparisons to 2004's "Napoleon Dynamite," as though the idea of another knock-off were a compliment. Though Napoleon's tired one-liners have long since overstayed their welcome in pop culture, at least the annoying antics of its characters manage to be somewhat believable. The character played by Melissa Rauch ("The Big Bang Theory") — who co-wrote (with Winston Rauch) "The Bronze," is an uninspired creation that feels like Tina Fey's Sarah Palin impression in a "Little Britain" sketch. Rauch plays Hope Annabelle Greggory, a 2004 Olympian bronze medalist in gymnastics who has been the pride »

Why ‘American Sniper’ Is Doing Better Overseas Than Previous Middle East War Movies

22 January 2015 1:16 PM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Timing, stars and nuanced campaigns help Clint Eastwood-Bradley Cooper drama start fast abroad for Warner Bros.

The Clint Eastwood-directed Iraq War saga “American Sniper” is off to a strong start at the overseas box office, having taken in more than $26 million in two weeks.

The international launch of the Bradley Cooper drama is particularly impressive, given how tough it has been for modern movies that deal with Americans at war in the Middle East to connect abroad.

To put that in perspective, “American Sniper” has already taken in more than the $24.2 million that last year’s Afghan War drama “Lone Survivor, »

5 Ways ‘The View’ Can Avoid the ‘Today’ Show Fall

22 January 2015 11:59 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

On heels of CBS’s “The Talk” besting the ABC program for first time, TV experts weigh in on how to boost the seemingly stagnant show

ABC’s “The View” returned this week with moderator Whoopi Goldberg back in her seat after a hiatus for a bulging disc in her back, during which time the show saw a rotating roster of guest panelists and reports of co-host Rosie Perez on her way out. To add insult to injury, CBS gabfest “The Talk” beat the ABC program in total viewers for the first time in its 18-season history — 2.95 million vs. 2.88 million, »

Sniping at American Sniper

22 January 2015 10:33 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

D.J. Haza on American Sniper

This week I ventured out into the cold to see the much hyped and discussed American Sniper. With 6 Oscar nominations in the bag and Clint Eastwood at the helm I was hoping for an interesting watch. However, it’s the aftermath that seems to be grabbing the headlines!

A good war film usually works a treat in entertaining blokes and this is no different. All the ingredients are there. Things blowing up – check. Men being bad ass men – check. Hot girl – check. American Sniper is unquestionably a great film and had me on the edge of my seat throughout. Chris Kyle’s story is definitely an interesting one, despite the many changes and factual ambiguity of the film. The end comes with some real tension and I found myself glued to the screen to see how things unfolded. It sucked me in and kept me entertained. »

Kid Rock Hopes Michael Moore, Seth Rogen ‘Catch a Fist to the Face’ for ‘American Sniper’ Comments

22 January 2015 8:59 AM, PST | The Wrap | See recent The Wrap news »

Both Moore and Rogen have said they actually liked the war drama starring Bradley Cooper, but the media has labeled them “critics,” anyway

Kid Rock entered the debate surrounding “American Sniper” in the classiest way possible: Calling Michael Moore “a piece of shit” and saying Seth Rogen was “probably” molested by his uncle.

“F–k you Michael Moore, you’re a piece of shit and your uncle would be ashamed of you. Seth Rogen, your uncle probably molested you. I hope both of you catch a fist to the face soon,” the rock star behind hits like “Bawitdaba” and “American »

Sarah Palin Talks About the 'American Sniper' She Called a Friend

21 January 2015 12:25 PM, PST | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

The real-life American Sniper, Chris Kyle, was more than "an ultimate warrior," says Sarah Palin, he was her friend. As the screen version of Kyle's story stirs both controversy and box-office records, Palin spoke with People via email Wednesday about the former Navy Seal killed in 2013. Palin first met Kyle in 2011 when, already retired from the military, he helped with security at one of her public appearances. They bonded when Kyle went on to star with Palin's husband, Todd, in the reality TV competition show, Stars Earn Stripes.

The Everything Index: Justin Bieber Gets to Stay Up Past His Bedtime

21 January 2015 9:58 AM, PST | Rollingstone.com | See recent Rolling Stone news »

It's time for another installment of Rolling Stone's "Everything Index," our midweek ranking of pop culture's power players.

In the wake of last night's State of the Union snapfest (a.k.a. Barack Obama: Raw), this week's list has a decidedly Democratic bent, though we're not about to forget our roots. That doesn't mean we're about to wax nostalgic about our time in the Hardee's biscuit line – instead, we're returning to a simpler era, when we could make jokes about Justin Bieber without fear of reproach (or egging) and »

The poster for Bradley Cooper's controversial Oscar-nominated film was defaced overnight in the Brentwood area of Los Angeles.

American Sniper: the fake baby, Sarah Palin defends film

20 January 2015 11:10 PM, PST | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Why does Clint Eastwood's American Sniper film use a very obviously fake baby? The film's writer has the answer...

The success of Clint Eastwood's American Sniper movie continues to spark debate and conversation. Having taken over $90m at the Us box office over the weekend, the film has been heavily criticised for taking a limited perspective. On the other hand, in many quarters it's been praised as a patriotic war movie.

In response to many of the criticisms that have been aimed at the film, former Us presidential candidate Sarah Palin has become the latest to leap to American Sniper's defence. If you needed any further proof as to what a political football the movie has become.

Palin wrote on Facebook that "Hollywood leftists: while caressing shiny plastic trophies you exchange among one another while spitting on the graves of freedom fighters who allow you to do what you do, »
