Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, which marches into theaters everywhere April 13, is based on the incredible true story of the unbreakable bond between a young Soldier and a stray dog who, for his valorous feats, was the first dog promoted to the rank of Sergeant in the U.S. Army, remains the most decorated dog in U.S. Armed Forces history and is widely considered the forerunner to the Army’s working dog program.

From Fun Academy Motion Pictures, Sgt. Stubby: An American Hero, opening in theaters nationwide on April 13,

Finding a New Life with VictoriaBrides.com

The following is a VictoriaBrides.com review authored by a member who found his wife through the service. The identities have been concealed to ensure at their request for privacy.

“You’re a loser. You’ll never get anywhere in life without me!,” my ex-wife yelled as she slammed the door in my face as she kicked me out of what used to be our home.

Those words haunted me in the two years since our divorce as I plunged into a depression. They echoed in my mind whenever I found myself lonely, drunk and unable to satisfy that basic human need of having someone close to me.

Her frequent criticisms chipped away at my self-esteem, crippling me in being able to even approach a woman in the months – and then years – following our split.

One evening, I was doing my typical surfing on the Internet when I somehow came across VictoriaBrides.

Movies That Still Make Us Feel Proud To Be American — Critics Survey

Movies That Still Make Us Feel Proud To Be American — Critics Survey
Every week, IndieWire asks a select handful of film and TV critics two questions and publishes the results on Monday. (The answer to the second, “What is the best film in theaters right now?”, can be found at the end of this post.)

This week’s (exceedingly difficult) question: In honor of our nation’s upcoming birthday, what is the movie that still makes you most proud to be an American? Or, for foreign critics: What film most compelling sells you on the promise of America’s potential?

Joshua Rothkopf (@joshrothkopf), Time Out New York

I know there are movies that are more complex, but “Apollo 13” gets me every time. It begins with the cynical idea of an American Dream that’s already in the rearview mirror: Moon launches, once the pride of a nation, have become routine — yesterday’s news. But journalists swarm when the orbiting crew falls into jeopardy.

Dysfunctional Heterosexual Couples and Oscar-Winning Cross-Gender Performance: TCM's Gay Pride Comes to an End

Dysfunctional Heterosexual Couples and Oscar-Winning Cross-Gender Performance: TCM's Gay Pride Comes to an End
Turner Classic Movies' 2017 Gay Pride film series comes to a close this evening and tomorrow morning, Thursday–Friday, June 29–30, with the presentation of seven movies, hosted by TV interviewer Dave Karger and author William J. Mann, whose books include Wisecracker: The Life and Times of William Haines and Behind the Screen: How Gays and Lesbians Shaped Hollywood, 1910-1969. Among tonight's movies' Lgbt connections: Edward Albee, Tony Richardson, Evelyn Waugh, Tab Hunter, John Gielgud, Roddy McDowall, Linda Hunt, Harvey Fierstein, Rudolf Nureyev, Christopher Isherwood, Joel Grey, and Tommy Kirk. Update: Coincidentally, TCM's final 2017 Gay Pride celebration turned out to be held the evening before a couple of international events – and one non-event – demonstrated that despite noticeable progress in the last three decades, gay rights, even in the so-called “West,” still have a long way to go. In Texas, the state's – all-Republican – Supreme Court decided that married gays should be treated as separate and unequal. In

Super Sidekick: Interview with the star of The Lego Batman Movie, Michael CeraSuper Sidekick: Interview with the star of The Lego Batman Movie, Michael CeraMarni Weisz - Editor, Cineplex Magazine2/8/2017 9:55:00 Am

Michael Cera is walking around his Brooklyn neighbourhood on a chilly December day.

“It’s a little cold, but it’s a nice kind of cold,” says the amiable 28-year-old. He still gets up to his suburban hometown of Brampton, Ontario — a short ride up the 410 from Toronto — as often he can, where he stays with his mom and dad and visits with his sisters and old friends who remained in the area.

His ultimate destination today is lunch with a writer friend, but on the way he’s squeezing in a chat about The Lego Batman Movie. He voices little plastic Robin to Will Arnett’s braggadocious (yes, it’s a word now) Batman.

See Samantha Bee Blast President Trump's 'Not-a-Muslim' Muslim Ban
Samantha Bee ripped President Donald Trump's executive order temporarily banning immigration from seven majority-Muslim countries during Full Frontal. Bee called the regulation hypocritical, inhumane and downright useless.

President Trump signed the order on Friday with little warning, so some travelers attempting to enter the country were turned away, while others were held at airports. The President insisted that everything was running smoothly and denied that his order targeted religion. Meanwhile, protests erupted around the country deriding the action as un-American and unconstitutional. Even the White House chief of staff,

By: Carson Blackwelder

Managing Editor

With an executive order that has been considered a Muslim ban by many, let’s take a look at some great films about immigration to the United States. There are plenty of them, but here is just a sampling of 16 that you should definitely watch.

A Better Life (2011): This film was directed by Chris Weitz and is a drama about a gardener in East L.A. who struggles to keep his son away from both gangs and immigration agents all while trying to give him opportunities he never had. A Better Life — written by

Watch Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers Slam Donald Trump's Immigrant Ban
Late-night TV hosts took turns blasting President Donald Trump on Monday for signing an executive order that prevents refugees and immigrants from certain Muslim countries from entering the United States for 120 days. "The line moves really fast on this ride," Stephen Colbert said of the Trump administration. "Every day you just get right back on the rollercoaster and start throwing up."

The host's monologue mixed incredulity – "There are currently more refugees around the world then at any time since World War II" – with biting humor. "The poem on the Statue of Liberty now reads,

White House Says Green Card Holders Won’t Be Subject to Immigration Ban After All

White House Says Green Card Holders Won’t Be Subject to Immigration Ban After All
This article originally appeared on Time.

Hours after a federal judge blocked a key component of President Donald Trump’s executive order banning refugees and visitors from seven Muslim-majority countries, the White House is backtracking on the order’s applicability to legal permanent residents of the U.S.

“As far as green card holders moving forward, it doesn’t affect them,” White House Chief of Staff Reince Priebus said Sunday morning in an appearance on NBC’s Meet the Press. But he added that those green card holders could be subject to additional interviews if they frequently travel to the countries in question.

If you.re an aspiring screenwriter who lives in Australia, starting a career in Hollywood can sometimes feel like a pipe dream.

[HotDocs Review] Hotel Dallas

Despite the name Hotel Dallas and general premise surrounding a replica of Southfork Ranch (where both the old and new Dallas series were filmed) built in Romania by an aspiring capitalist, husband and wife directing duo Sherng-Lee Huang and Livia Ungur‘s film is really about a country crippled under its past that’s still unsure of its future. It’s about art and its ability to speak to people’s hearts and souls whether seeking to do so or not. It’s also about a young girl who grew to embrace a vocation that one day allowed her to work alongside her childhood celebrity crush: Patrick Duffy. Part documentary, soap opera-y restaging of history, memory curio, and love letter to home, this art piece is as uniquely informative as imaginatively wild.

Berlinale ’16: Soy Nero review

Soy Nero review: A decent, slow-burning picture from filmmaker Rafi Pitts that is let down by a weaker second half.

Soy Nero review by Paul Heath, Berlin Film Festival, 2016. Soy Nero, or I Am Nero to translate to English, follows the story of Nero, a Mexico native who is looking to make the dangerous trip across the border into the United States Of America. He is intent on becoming a U.S. Citizen and be with his brother Jesus in Los Angeles. Obviously having made the journey before, to no avail, Nero jumps the fence once more, only this time making it past the border patrol, eventually ending up in Southern California, where he finds his brother in a plush Beverly Hills mansion. His dream of becoming a U.S. Citizen is heightened from seeing his sibling, who has seemingly made it big, and figures that his only way of quickly achieving the same,

Berlin Film Review: ‘Soy Nero’

Berlin Film Review: ‘Soy Nero’
At this stage, America’s war in the Middle East practically has its own dedicated cinematic subgenre, so all credit to Rafi Pitts’ confident, deceptively calm “Soy Nero” for finding in the conflict a surprisingly under-explored angle: the plight of foreign “Green Card soldiers” joining the U.S. Army in the hope of attaining citizenship. Following one such hapless recruit, played with vulnerable impassivity by Johnny Ortiz, as he negotiates the seemingly not-so-different border patrols of Mexico and an unspecified stretch of the Middle East, Pitts’ pristinely composed sixth feature is thoughtfully marked by the Iranian-born filmmaker’s own experience of amorphous national identity. Its ironies, however, are more heavily inscribed than we’ve come to expect from his work — or, indeed, that of his accomplished Romanian co-writer Razvan Radulescu. If that leaves the pic softer in impact at its end than its outset, its formal virtues are more consistently punchy.

Berlin Film Festival: The Match Factory Represents Three Competition, Three Panorama Films (Exclusive)
London — World sales company The Match Factory will represent three films world premiering in Competition at next month’s 66th Berlin Film Festival, including Danis Tanovic’s “Death in Sarajevo,” and three pics premiering in the fest’s Panorama program.

From the hotel roof to the cellar club, via the reception, laundry room and kitchen, the micro-cosmos of Hotel Evropa is turned into an ideological pressure cooker.
