Mark Wahlberg Has Tough Words for Celebrities Pushing their Politics Actor Mark Wahlberg of DEEPWATER HORIZON and the upcoming PATRIOTS DAY recently told a news outlet geared toward veterans that his fellow celebrities should stick to entertainment and stop pushing their politics on the public. During a press event for PATRIOTS DAY, TASK & PURPOSE asked the actor about all the celebrities bashing Donald Trump before the election, which Trump won. “It just goes to show you that people aren’t listening to [them] anyway,” Wahlberg said. “They might buy your CD or watch your movie, but you don’t put food on their table. You don’t pay their bills. “A lot of Hollywood is living in a bubble,” Wahlberg added. “They’re...

What Will 'Make America Great Again’? By David Outten Who will have more impact on your children: the media or Donald Trump? America is deeply divided about what to expect from a Trump administration, but you can rest assured Donald Trump will not save your children from being led to disaster by the entertainment media. At Movieguide® we’re thrilled that more family and Christian movies are being made than ever, but the momentum of American media impact is not yet positive. Girls are still being encouraged to look like sex objects, and boys are still being taught to take advantage of them. Many Christians hope that a Trump administration halt the growing government hostility to Christianity, but the place this really needs to be...

Faith and Patriotism: John Wayne
November 29, 2016

Faith and Patriotism:  John Wayne By Karen Edmisten Actor John Wayne, known as the “Duke,” was an embodiment of masculinity and patriotism. Wayne appeared in more than 175 movies. He won an Academy Award for his role as Rooster Cogburn in the 1969 version of TRUE GRIT, but is most remembered for his iconic starring roles in movies directed by John Ford and Howard Hawks. Also, he still consistently polls among the top five favorite male movie stars done annually by the Harris poll company. He’s at No. 4 in the poll released in early 2016, and No. 1 among men. With his Scotch-Irish bloodline, Wayne was raised a Presbyterian, but as he grew into the beloved legend we all knew and love, he didn’t publicly walk in faith. His firs...

5 Reasons ‘A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving’ is the Cutest Thanksgiving Movie Ever By Evy Baehr, Executive Managing Editor   You may think that the short Charlie Brown television movies are just simple little programs, but they are so much more.

The video starts out with Patty inviting herself over to Charlie Brown’s house for thanksgiving. Charlie doesn’t know what to say, but Patty does all the speaking. Patty calls back to say many more want to come. Overwhelmed by all this, Charlie admits he has never made a meal. In fact, he can barely spr...
