‘Star Trek Continues’ Righting a Start Trek Original Sin

April 19, 2014 | Filed Under Entertainment, Hollywood, Movies, TV, Warner Todd Huston | No Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

Recently the second episode of a fan-made re-boot (or more properly a continuation) of the original Kirk/Spock Star Trek appeared online and, as with this troupe’s first episode, this one was quite a success. But an interesting aspect of the episode is that it made to correct a Star Trek original sin, of sorts.

This is the second episode from the new web series, “Star Trek Continues,” starring Vic Mignogna as Captain Kirk, Todd Haberkorn as Spock, Larry Nemeck as McCoy, and Chris Doohan as Scotty (son of the original Star Trek actor James Doohan).

(See my review of the first episode from last year here.)

This episode, titled “Lolani,” featured a few well-known actors chipping in with their talent to help the episode along. Lou Ferrigno (“The Incredible Hulk”) starred as the episode’s menacing baddie, an Orion slave trader named Zaminhon, and Erin Gray (“Buck Rogers”) had several guest shots as a Starfleet Admiral.

Interestingly, as an Orion slaver, Ferrigno had to go green once again, invoking his days as the Hulk in the 1970s/80s TV show in which he played the titular big green guy in the ripped purple pants.

For those unaware of what a Star Trek Orion alien is, well, they have brilliantly green skin. So, it was notable that Ferrigno donned the green body makeup once again.

Hollywood Poseur ‘Jay Z’ and His White-Men-are-Devils Medallion

Hollywood poseur “Jay Z”–whose real name is Shawn Corey Carter–has taken to wearing a gaudy, coaster-sized medallion from a group that says white people are evil and blacks are a superior race. But the truth is, this mope is wearing the regalia without walking the walk by actually joining the black-centric hate group.

“Jay Z” and his buddies have been seen wearing these medallions lately. They come from a hate group called the Five Percent Nation. The medallion–an eight-point star with the number 7 in the middle–means that blacks are a superior race. It’s sort of a darker version of the Aryan Nation racists.

The Death of the TV Butler–Literally

March 16, 2014 | Filed Under Comic Books, Entertainment, Hollywood, Movies, Society/Culture, TV, Warner Todd Huston, Western Civilization | No Comments

-By Warner Todd Huston

TV, movies, and literature used to be filled with Butlers, that manservant to the well to do. But the character device has fallen out of favor lately, so much so that if an actor was famous for playing a butler, he’s probably dead!

Of course, one of the most famous butlers in entertainment history is Reginald Jeeves of the novels penned by P. G. Wodehouse. Jeeves was brought to life on British TV in the early 1990s by comedic actor Stephen Fry. Thankfully, Fry still with us, of course, but the character is an old one having first made the literary scene in 1915.

The most recent TV butler is Mr. Carson on the well-loved British series “Downton Abbey.” Mr. Carson is played by actor Jim Carter who is also still very much alive as this show is still in production. We were also recently treated to actor Forest Whitaker in the schmaltzy movie “Lee Daniels’ The Butler,” a 2013 film also starring Oprah Winfrey. Certainly Whitaker is still alive and working in Hollywood. But a whole host of other film and TV butlers have passed on to that great mansion in the sky and the role of the butler is not used much these days to bring us new ones to replace them.

Batman’s Alfred

Batman has quite a famous butler in the personae of one Mr. Alfred Pennyworth. With apologies to Mr. Wodehouse, I’d suggest that Alfred is the most famous butler in all of western entertainment as we’ve seen more of Mr. Pennyworth than any other butler in the last 70 years.

Alfred first appeared in the comic books in 1943, and most recently famed actor Michael Caine took the role for the Christopher Nolan “Dark Knight” series of Batman movies. Caine is very much with us, granted. We also hear that Jeremy Irons will be taking the role of Alfred in next year’s Superman sequel, “Batman vs. Superman”–he’s also alive and kicking, naturally.

The two mentioned above aside, Alfred has also been personified on TV and in film by several other actors all of whom are dead. In the late 1960s Alan Napier took the role of Bruce Wayne/Batman’s trusted servant. Napier passed in 1988. Later, when the Batman movies started making headway in the series begun by director Tim Burton, Michael Gough played the famous manservant. Gough died in 2011. Ian Abercrombie also played Alfred for the one-season-long series “Birds of Prey.” He died in 2012. And at least two others who played Alfred in the 1940s era movie serials are also dead.

Tolerant Hollywood Fires Actress Who Supported Conservative Candidate

Remember, liberals–especially effusive Hollywood folk–are smarter, more loving, more grown up that you knuckle dragging conservatives, and they care more about people, too. And if you don’t agree… they’ll fire you with prejudice. Because: tolerance. That is what happened to one actress in Hollywood that dared support a conservative candidate.

Longtime denizen of Hollywood, actress Maria Conchita Alonso, was fired from an acting job in California because she dared to appear in an ad for Republican candidate for governor Tim Donnelly.

Donnelly, a current California assemblyman, is now running for governor to replace the extremely left-wing Governor Jerry “Moonbeam” Brown, the octogenarian liberal who is driving some of the final nails into California’s coffin.

Gay British actor Alan Cumming, was not very happy with Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal for coming to the support of Duck Dynasty star Phil Robertson. In fact, Cumming called Jindal a “dickbrain” for coming to Robertson’s support.

Cumming, who starred in such massive, important cinematic hits as Spy Kids and Smurfs 2 and is now a bit player in the TV show The Good Wife, also noted that he wants to institute a “socialist utopia” in the USA.

The homosexual British actor made these comments on his Twitter feed after he belatedly found out that Bobby Jindal came to Robertson’s support.

On his Twitter account, Cumming noted that Jindal said that the “left may control Hollywood, but not the hearts and minds of a majority of Americans.” Then the actor added, “Yet US voted left. Twice.” The actor added the hashtag “#dickbrain.”

The Robertson family of TV’s Duck Dynasty are the folks liberals hate the most, but the rest of America (you know, real America) love the Robertson clan. The Robertsons are so loved that their Christmas Album is soaring through the charts and is on track to possibly winning a Grammy Award! That’ll show ‘em!

According to Billboard, the Robertsons’ Christmas album Duck the Halls: A Robertson Family Christmas is ranked 6th over all on the best-selling charts for December. And on the country chart, only Garth Books tops the Louisiana clan’s album.

The Duck Dynasty folks are ranking right up there with some of the biggest names in music today. Only Beyonce, Garth Brooks, Kelly Clarkson, R. Kelly, and One Direction have albums with higher sales that the Robertsons.

‘Christmas With The Kranks’: Let’s Play ‘Hey, That Movie is Racist’

December 24, 2013 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Ethics, Liberals, Movies, Progressives, Race, Racism, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

To show how easy it is to read things into things–like the left does all the time–let’s take the terrible Christmas movie Christmas With The Kranks and show how the film is “racist.”

The 2004 movie starring Tim Allen, Jamie Lee Curtis and Dan Aykroyd is really dreck as far as movies go. It’s even bad for schmaltzy Christmas fare. But there is a sequence in it that proves it is racist… at least if we use the left’s reckoning system.

So, the plot of the film is set up when Luther and Nora Krank (Tim Allen and Jamie Lee Curtis) find out that their daughter (who cares) is spending Christmas away from home for the first time.

Instead of having a traditional Christmas at home with decorations, a tree, and the works, the Kranks decide they are going on a cruise to sunny whereeverwedon’tcare. But when the neighbors find out, we find out it’s a neighborhood transgression on the block’s Christmas tradition tyranny.

That Christmas tradition tyranny is lorded over by local busybody and self-appointed “mayor” of the neighborhood, Vic Frohmeyer (a portly Dan Aykroyd).

If you are a netcitizen of a certain age, you’ll remember the Charlie Brown TV specials. We all waited for them each year on Halloween and Christmas. It was always a highlight of our childhood years in the 60s and 70s. But if they tried to make heartwarming shows like this today the left-wing, anti-Americans and Christmas haters out there would destroy any TV network that tried it.

This TV cartoon special is so filled with traditional Christmas and Christian religious symbolism that were it made today the left would firebomb any network that tried to do it.

Take the central monologue delivered by Peanuts character Linus who quoted from the Bible to explain what the true meaning of Christmas is for all of us.

Oprah Says You Racists Have to Die For Country to Love Obama

-By Warner Todd Huston

In a recent interview Oprah Winfrey said that the only reason someone wouldn’t like President Obama is because they are racists and then said that to fix the country all you white, racists will just have to die.

Winfrey was exhaling her hot air with the British Broadcasting Corp. (BBC) where she was on a trip to hawk her a-historial film The Butler.

The nearly 60-year-old former hit talk show host proved once again that she doesn’t know what the word “racist” means and, like all religionist Obama supporters, claimed that race is the only possible reason why people would be against the worst, most anti-American, anti-Israel, anti-Constitution, pro-communist president in American history.

Oprah was asked if people were against Obama because of the color of his skin, Oprah said, “There’s no question.”

“I think there’s a level of disrespect for the office that occurs. And that occurs in some cases … because he’s African American. There’s no question about that. And it’s the kind of thing no one ever says, but everybody’s thinking,” she bleated.

No one says? Has she not paid attention to MSNBC and the race hustlers like Al $harpton and Je$$e Jack$on? Has she not heard one celebutard after another say day in and day out that the only reason people oppose Obama is because they are evil, white racists??

Her blather continued. “As long as people can be judged by the color of their skin, problem’s not solved,” she said.

“There are still generations of people, older people, who were born and bred and marinated in it, in that prejudice and racism, and they just have to die.”

See that, whities? You’ll all just have to die.

It is interesting that Winfrey still acts as if the whole of the USA is “marinated” in racism. After all, she grew up mostly in the post Jim Crow era. Oprah had every educational opportunity, she became a figure much beloved as much by whites as by blacks, and became a multi-billionaire who attained the sort of fame that anyone would love to have. Where is all the “racism” that kept Oprah Winfrey down?

But the biggest point here is that contrary to the racebaiting industry in the United States, “racism” is not solely defined as whites hating blacks. Racism knows no boundaries.

Racism is a human condition and is exemplified in Japanese people looking down on other Asians. It is exemplified by dark-skinned blacks hating light-skinned blacks–and vice versa. It is seen in the hate Greeks have for non-Greeks, or the hate some have for Hispanics, or the hate American Indians have for white people, or the hate… well, you get the point. The fact is, racism exists in every corner of the world and has since man developed language and social communities. It isn’t solely a hate that white Americans have for blacks as people like Winfrey say it is.

But, I’ll tell you what, Oprah. You go ahead and give back the billions of dollars that millions of white Americans willingly gave you for your products, books, and TV shows. I mean, why would you want to have racists as fans?

OK, there is my rant for the day.

Actor Mark Wahlberg Slams Tom Cruise: ‘How F*cking Dare You’ Compare Acting to Afghanistan

Actor Mark Wahlberg thinks fellow actor Tom Cruise is a jerk for comparing acting to what our solders have to go through in a tour in Afghanistan. “How F*cking Dare You,” Wahlberg said to Cruise.

A few weeks ago, news broke that Cruise seemed to compare being an actor to serving a tour in Afghanistan during comments he made in a legal deposition.

The court case from which the deposition came is Cruise’s libel suit against magazine publisher Bauer Publishing. He’s suing them for printing the claim that he had abandoned his daughter, Suri, and now ex-wife Katie Holmes.

It wasn’t long before websites like TMZ were posting headlines saying things like: “Tom Cruise — My Job’s As Hard As Fighting in Afghanistan.”

Well, actor Mark Wahlberg is incensed by this idiotic comparison of acting to what our troops have to go through.

Famed Writer of ‘The Exorcist’ A Serious Anti-Abortion, Catholic

It is somewhat shocking to find the man that created the book that served as the basis for one of the scariest movies in Hollywood history is a serious, practicing Catholic who is sickened by abortion. After all, few in Hollywood are people of faith. But author and screenwriter William Peter Blatty is unapologetic about his deep faith.

Before mega blockbusters like Jaws, Star Wars, or ET, The Exorcist had audiences around the world flocking to theaters to witness the scariest movie ever produced. Many today feel that the William Friedkin directed picture is still the scariest movie of all time.

HuffPo’s Non-Movie Review: Brandon Darby’s ‘Informant’ is ‘Misogynistic’?

-By Warner Todd Huston

Brandon Darby, one-time liberal activist and now a Breitbart contributor, is the subject of Informant, a new film about his journey through the left’s grievance factory and the act of domestic terrorism he helped the FBI thwart. But Huffington Post is not very happy about it all. In fact, in his quasi review of the film, HuffPo’s Kris Hermes is more upset at Darby for “undermining” the left than he is at folks on his own side that wanted to kill Americans with firebombs.

At the outset Hermes admits that he has no intention to actually review the film in his film review saying, “I ultimately decided to review Informant not for its content.” But instead Hermes announced he intended to use his piece to name call, gripe about Dabry’s actions, and dismiss any wrongdoing from his compatriots in left-wing activism.

Hermes gets right to the name calling, too. In his first paragraph, Hermes calls Darby a “right-wing propagandist,” in his third he oddly calls Darby a “misogynist” and in between he claims that the FBI exists to “criminalize entire Muslim and Arab-American communities” and says Darby did the same thing; “criminalize fellow (left-wing) activists.”

Hollywood Anti-War Left Fears It’s Racist to Oppose Obama’s Syrian War

September 7, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Anti-War, Barack Obama, Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Ethics, Hollywood, Liberals, Movies, President, Progressives, Syria, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Actor Ed Asner has explained why the anti-war Hollywood left is absent from the fight against Obama’s war in Syria. Hollywood is more afraid of looking like racists than interested in standing up for their supposed principles against killing people.

Asner made the accusation in a recent interview with the Hollywood Reporter though he also fell back on Bush-was-worse claims.

Asner is opposed to any military intervention in Syria and said that it could be considered a “war crime” if Obama were to initiate any such action, but he also had an interesting explanation on why there is no organized anti-Syria war movement in Hollywood.

“A lot of people don’t want to feel anti-black by being opposed to Obama,” Asner said.

The Stupid ‘Middle East Peace’ Plot Point of ‘White House Down’

July 1, 2013 | Filed Under Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Hollywood, Liberals, Middle East, Movies, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

On Saturday I saw the new summer actioner White House Down and found the main conceit of the film laughably stupid, as is all Hollywood fare of this type. Oh, it was a fun flick if you just forget about reality, and I am not just talking about the comic book-like action sequences, either. No, the whole reason why the White House was coming “down,” as it were, was just plain idiotic.

The flick, starring Channing Tatum as a beleaguered Secret Service applicant and Jamie Foxx as the President of the United States, was typical of the over-the-top sort of action flicks that director Roland Emmerich and the those filmmakers like him are so wont to produce. Emmerich was the director of such films as Independence Day (1996) and The Day After Tomorrow (2004), so you know there are going to be big explosions and lots of bullets and car chases.

In fact, there was a sort of inside joke on director Emmerich’s penchant for destroying Washington when one character, a White House tour guide, pointed out that the main section of the White House was destroyed in Independence Day, a film Emmerich directed.


Director Roland Emmericah destroys the White House in “Independence Day” 1996

Still, it was a fun movie with gobs of action spiced with humor and delicious gotcha endings for the bad guys. It is taken from granted that no one human could survive what was thrown at Tatum’s character in the flick. You just have to go with it. And, instead of totally destroying the White House, in this fim Emmerich collapses the dome of the Capitol Building while leaving the White House a scarred, but still standing mess.

But the central premise of why the White House was being attacked was just the sort of empty headed, feelsgoodism that shows exactly why liberals should never be in charge of anything of importance.

Angelina Jolie’s Stunt Double Sues News Corp for Phone Hacking

-By Warner Todd Huston

In the first lawsuit filed in the U.S. over the British phone hacking scandal involving Rupert Murdoch’s News Corp media empire, a stuntwoman for actress Angelina Jolie has filed suit alleging that the media company hacked her telephone.

The suit was filed on June 13 by professional stunt double Eunice Huthart who claims that News Corp’s tabloids The Sun and News of the World spied on her phone while she worked on location as Jolie’s stunt double.

The stuntwoman says the hacking occurred over the years 2004 and 2005 as she worked on the movie Mr. and Mrs. Smith.

The suit (Western Division, L.A. case No. 13-04253) alleges that Huthart began to miss messages on her phone, messages that later ended up in stories about the budding relationship between Jolie and actor Brad Pitt, co-stars on the action movie on which the stuntwoman was working.

New Film ‘The Purge’ A Slam on NRA, Tea Party Movement

June 12, 2013 | Filed Under Anti-Americanism, Crime, Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Ethics, Hollywood, Liberals, Movies, Progressives, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

The new Ethan Hawke thriller The Purge was number one at the box office during its opening weekend, but critics are slamming the film for its thinly veiled commentary against the National Rifle Association, Sarah Palin, and Tea Party groups.

The plot brings moviegoers to the near future where in 2022 a new regime has come to America. The “New Founders” have taken over the country and practically eliminated unemployment, crime, and want.

One of the ways this new political movement has brought on such an idyllic society is to allow one night a year when any and all violence, even murder, is legal. Citizens are allowed to “purge” their basest tendencies during that one lawless night.

The whole premise takes quite a lot of suspension of disbelief. If it were that easy to shut off human nature for 364 days a year, why not shut it off for that last one? But director James DeMonaco was more interested in social commentary than logic. And his hope was to purge the NRA, the Tea Party, Sarah Palin, and conservatives.

This Fan-Made Episode of ‘Star Trek’ Is Quite Good

June 3, 2013 | Filed Under Entertainment, Movies, TV, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Are you a big Trekker? Did you love the original Kirk/Spock Star Trek (or as fans call it TOS–for “The Original Series”)? Have you seen some of those fan-made, web-based episodes that left you snickering, even if only a bit? Well, get ready for Star Trek Continues because this one is a top notch, fan-made continuation of the Kirk/Spock era Trek that is well worth your time.

There have been a few of these fan-made attempts to evoke the original Gene Roddenberry series, some of them passable, some down right embarrassing. But this one? Well, this one is a good ‘un and if you are a Star Trek fan you should take the time to watch it.

This loving homage to TOS is produced in association with Farragut Films and Dracogen Investments, and stars Vic Mignogna as Captain James T. Kirk.

Mr. Mignogna is the driving force behind the show and wears multiple hats behind the scenes. But on the screen Mignogna does a very nice rendition of Shatner’s Captain Kirk without devolving into parody. Mignogna evokes some of Shatner’s mannerisms just subtly enough that you feel comfortable identifying him as “Captain Kirk.” (Though I feel he might be a tad too short in reality. But that is easily ignored)

Mignogna even has got that Capt. Kirk walk down pat. Shatner always gave Kirk a particular walk, sort of a stiff-backed swagger that reminds one of a bit less developed John Wayne gait. Mignogna does this “Kirk walk” motion quite well.

Hllywd Director Phil Lord: Jay Z and Beyonce ‘Look Like Dupes’ Over Cuba Trip

-By Warner Todd Huston

More condemnation for the vacation trip to Cuba indulged by rapper Jay Z and gal-pal singer Beyonce, this time from Hollywood director Phil Lord–himself the son of a Cuban refugee. Lord thinks that the entertainers were “dupes” of the oppressive Cuban military, that they “don’t care” about the political gulags Cuban dictator Castro built, that they essentially mocked the thousands of Cubans that have been imprisoned and lost their lives in those prisons, and says the pair represent little else but “nihilism with a beat.”

Beyonce and Jay Z celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary in Havana, Cuba, apparently with the blessing of Barack Obama’s administration quite despite that the U.S. still has an official prohibition against Americans visiting the Island nation turned political prison.

Lord told the media that at first he thought that Jay Z and Beyonce just weren’t aware of the oppression of Cuban people. He gave them the benefit of the doubt that they just weren’t aware of the many artists that had been imprisoned and their art banned. But after Jay Z released his song that taunted people opposing Cuba, Lord realized that Shawn Corey “Jay Z” Carter knew exactly what he was doing that that made it all the worse.

The director of such films as 21 Jump Street and Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs is not alone in his condemnation of the Island hopping Carters. AJ Delgado also slammed Jay Z for the trip saying, “Beyoncé and Jay-Z not only legitimize and support the repressive regime, with both their presence and their cash, but turn a blind eye, cruelly, to the perils and languishing of the Cuban people.”

New York Investigating Anti-Fracking Lobbying by Yoko One, Mark Ruffalo, Robert De Niro

-By Warner Todd Huston

A formal complaint has been filed with a New York lobbying board to investigate whether Yoko Ono, Robert De Niro and nearly 200 other celebrities have violated state laws with their Artists Against Fracking activist group.

Celebrities are well known for dabbling in social activism whether what they have to say makes sense or not and the recent cause célèbre is the anti-fracking movement. Along with Yoko Ono, actors Mark Ruffalo and Robert De Niro, and ex-Beatle Paul McCartney, the movement has drawn the support of some 200 celebrities all donating time and money to stop efforts toward American energy independence.

The group has sponsored rallies and concerts and on it’s website the celebrity group urges visitors to “Tell Governor Cuomo Don’t Frack New York!”

Pushing the issue on a national TV audience, Ono and son Sean even appeared on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon to sing a somewhat ridiculous anti-fracking song at the end of January.

Despite some $430 million in tax breaks for Hollywood in last year’s “fiscal cliff” deal, DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg has announced that he is cutting 350 people by the end of the year.

After the disappointing box office for DreamWorks’ latest film, The Rise of the Guardians, Katzenberg said that the $165 million loss made him “go back and rethink everything.”

“So it makes you go back and rethink everything, not just the fact that it didn’t work–certainly we spent a lot of time reflecting on that–but more importantly saying, ‘Let’s look at everything and say, ‘What could we be doing better, smarter, more effectively to really position the company in the best possible way gong forward?’ And that’s what we’ve done, and that’s what restructuring is all about,” Katzenberg told the Hollywood Reporter.

The culmination of last night’s Oscars broadcast with a Live! feed from the White House with Mrs. Obama (hangin’ with her military BFs) marks the official recognition of the Presidency as theater: like the old Western sets, no substance required.

From the very beginning, President Obama was elected based on his strong delivery of stirring words, “Hope and change,” with no serious vetting of his record or policies. Having been awarded the presidency, as the Oscars follow the Golden Globes, Mr. Obama was next awarded the Nobel Peace Prize, solely for his well-scripted promises for peace…

A Marvelous Little Disney Short Video

January 31, 2013 | Filed Under Art, Entertainment, Hollywood, Movies, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Folks, Disney has made a little short film to showcase an animation technique… and I couldn’t care less about that. But this little film the Mouse made to showcase the technique is a truly marvelous short film.

Very affecting, and totally innocent.

Watch this little movie. You’ll be happy you spent the 6 and a half minutes.

This was a delightful little flick.

If you are at all interested the technique they were selling, though, here is the description from the page:

Introducing a groundbreaking technique that seamlessly merges computer-generated and hand-drawn animation techniques, first-time director John Kahrs takes the art of animation in a bold new direction with the Oscar®-nominated short, “Paperman.” Using a minimalist black-and-white style, the short follows the story of a lonely young man in mid-century New York City, whose destiny takes an unexpected turn after a chance meeting with a beautiful woman on his morning commute. Convinced the girl of his dreams is gone forever, he gets a second chance when he spots her in a skyscraper window across the avenue from his office. With only his heart, imagination and a stack of papers to get her attention, his efforts are no match for what the fates have in store for him. Created by a small, innovative team working at Walt Disney Animation Studios, “Paperman” pushes the animation medium in an exciting new direction.


Ashton Kutcher’s Apple Computer Founder BioPic Slammed as ‘Totally Wrong’

January 28, 2013 | Filed Under Apple, Computers, Hollywood, Inernet, Movies, Technology, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Actor Ashton Kutcher is starring in jOBS, an upcoming film based on the life of Apple Computer founder Steve Jobs. But at least one person intimate with the Mac mastermind is not impressed. Apple co-founder Steve Wozniak is slamming Kutcher’s film as “totally wrong.”

Apple co-wiz, Woz, made his comments after seeing a clip from the movie showing the 34-year-old actor seeming to portray a period in Apple’s creation when Steve Jobs was a much younger person than actor Krutcher. Wozniak felt their “relationship” was portrayed incorrectly, as well.

“Not close…we never had such interaction and roles…I’m not even sure what it’s getting at…personalities are very wrong although mine is closer,” Woz wrote to the tech site Gizmodo.

Woz also noted that it wasn’t Jobs that was the early, far-seeing computer maker that foresaw the social changes that computers would eventually bring. In fact, Jobs came to the computer club that helped spawn what would become Apple Computers after the home computer’s creation was envisioned.

Actor John Leguizamo a Big Fan of Big Government

January 28, 2013 | Filed Under Budget, Democrats/Leftists, Entertainment, Ethics, Hollywood, Liberals, Movies, Progressives, Taxes, Warner Todd Huston | Comments Off

-By Warner Todd Huston

Actor John Leguizamo refuses to employ any cagey politically correct speak about his love for big government. There’s no dancing around or soft-pedaling with him. For Leguizamo, big government is all good.

In a recent interview with Nicholas Ballasy, the actor asked “What’s wrong with big government?”

“I’ve never had a problem with big government. I’ve felt our country’s always done best during Eisenhower, FDR, when we had we had big government … We’re not in a fascist state, so what’s the problem with big government? It’s not a problem. It makes things better,” the actor said.

Leguizamo also went on to push for more regulation on Wall Street and claimed that there needs to be more government funding “in the arts.”

He also seemed to have no problem paying even more taxes than he now does.

“I think with the taxing the rich now that’s finally happening now which we need to do – I mean, back in the 50′s and 60′s, if you made money you paid like 70 percent in taxes or even higher than that, and that’s when we started booming and creating a middle class,” he said.
