American Sniper is the first truly great film made about the war in Iraq. It is not a celebration of war; or a call to action against Muslims. It is a sad film about the bravery of warriors in battles whose purpose is lost in the fog of war.

My father was Noel Purcell, Actor, Comedian and Freeman of the City of Dublin. I do want to share the real man behind the Stage and Screen star, his pride in his work, his incredible humility for all his success but most of all, I want to show him as MY DAD!

In Dineesh D’Souza’s newest (and awful) “psuedo-documentary”, on September 11, 1777 (yeah! 9/11) General George Washington is gunned down by a British assassin and in the next few moments we see the Statue of Liberty and the Faces of Mt. Rushmore crumble like dust into the air

What movies come to mind when you think “Tea Party”? Psycho, Saboteur, Freaks, Dumb and Dumber? But imagine how famous movie quotes could be or feel different if today’s Republicans had starred in classic films instead of their actual stars.
