1. Expect To See Leonardo DiCaprio In A Joey Ramone Wig — Martin Scorsese To Direct Film About Iconic Punk Band
Word around both the movie and music worlds is that legendary New York filmmaker Martin Scorsese, who rose to prominence in the '70s with energetic, violence and drug-tinged portrayals of life in films like Taxi Driver and Mean Streets, might be planning to make a film about the legendary New York punk band The Ramones, who rose to prominence in the '70s with energetic, violence and drug-tinged portrayals of life in songs like "Beat on the Brat" and "I Wanna Be Sedated." Seems like an odd pairing, doesn't it?
Every time I watch old Ramones footage, I think to myself: "Fuck, if only I could see this through the eyes of the guy who made The Aviator.— Damian Abraham (@leftfordamian) August 28, 2014
2. New Kirk Cameron Film 'Saving Christmas' From All The Make-Believe People Who Are Pretend Destroying It
Conservative Christian Kirk Cameron's new film, Saving Christmas—which claims to be a comedy, but can probably be more accurately described as a cinematic religious tract—promises to destroy many of the supposed myths surrounding Christmas, such as the one about Christmas trees originally being a pagan symbol (never mind that it almost certainly was). "I assume [atheists are] going to get frustrated to see some of their best arguments deflated by this movie, because we take on some of the most commonly parroted myths about the origins of Christmas," Cameron explained in an interview with The Blaze.
