'Persecuted' Gives Faith-Based Films a Bad Name
Huffington Post - over 2 years
This year there have been quite a number of faith-based movies released. Some have been high profile like "Heaven Is For Real" and others have been low on the radar like "Alone Yet Not Alone." Still most of them have shared a quality of talent that makes them acceptable to the movie going community. That is as it should be. Just because a movie is faith-based does not mean it is automatically worth seeing. A "faith-based" film should have to earn its audience just like every other kind of movie. Take a movie like "Persecuted." This just released movie has been hyped as a faith-based film. Boasting a cast that includes Fred Dalton Thompson and Fox News' Gretchen Carlson, this is a movie that should play successfully with those on the right of the political spectrum and with Christians in particular. Let's hope not, since "Persecuted" is a perfectly awful movie. The story concerns a charismatic minister named John Luther (James Remar). At the height of his success he is framed for a ...

Lorraine Devon Wilke: The Other Lincoln Movie: Indie Feature Saving Lincoln Premieres on Lincoln's Birthday
Huffington Post - about 4 years
As we approach the Oscars with their coveted acknowledgement of the best in film, all bets are on Daniel Day-Lewis and Steven Spielberg's Lincoln to win the lion's share of top prizes. But as that big budget feature makes the rounds as top contender with both audiences and critics, another film based on our 16th president, Saving Lincoln, has been nurtured into life by a team of filmmakers who approached it with a unique vision and a desire to create a kind of film no one had ever seen before. It is now set to premiere in Los Angeles on February 12th... yes, the day of Lincoln's birthday. As a film lover and observer of many an artistic process, I found the technical and creative mission statement of this independent feature particularly intriguing. Given that my brother, Tom Amandes, was ultimately cast in the lead role, I was able to get just a bit of an inside look at the "little Lincoln" that was coming together simultaneous to the "big" one. The angle here isn't ...

Steve Young: Hollywood Exclaims: Stop Mistreating Deceptive Politicians! (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The Supreme Court has already made it clear that corporations are people. It's time to acknowledge that political dishonesty has the same legitimacy as political truth. What happened to freedom of speech?! America used to be the country where a man (and since 1920, a woman) could speak freely without some holier-than-thou, sanctimonious, do-gooder, blathering on about how politicians had to be honest with the public. I'm guessing that these same people would have wanted President Roosevelt telling Adolf what time we were hitting Normandy; or would have had Yogi Berra tell Brooklyn Dodger hitters what pitches perfect-game Don Larson was going to throw. Whether ruining America's war effort or America's pastime, these Democracy-interrupters have been hell-bent in getting in the way of... America. Today, it's worse than ever. These self-righteous, anti-patriots now want the public to rise up against good-old, American spinmanship. Flackcheck.org, an offshoot website ...

I remembered the swimming pool. I didn't remember the bug zapper. Terrence McNally's ''Lips Together, Teeth Apart,'' the Westport Country Playhouse's singular new production, is a brilliant piece of quiet indirection. It is set in the early 1990s in that most upscale of gay settings -- a beach house on Fire Island, presumably the Pines -- without a
