New Year, Old Hollywood: 2018

Tweet After one year of the Trump presidency we are hopeful and optimistic. Obama’s JV team, ISIS, has been nearly wiped out. Neil Gorsuch sits on the Supreme Court. The Keystone pipeline is, at last, open. The individual mandate is gone. Which spells the beginning off the end for Obamacare. More and more federal lands […]

Flashback: When Hollywood Celebrated Christmas

Tweet There was a time when Hollywood openly and joyously celebrated Christmas. Now, among the Hollywood elite, the greeting I hear is “Happy Holidays.” Look, we at Seraphic Secret are Orthodox Jews. This is not our holiday. But we want our Christian friends to celebrate Christmas. The politically correct Happy Holidays shtick is another nail […]

Thanksgiving 2017: The Children of the Children of Israel

Tweet As far as I know, there are only two countries in the world that were founded on the idea of hope. America and Israel. And what was the hope?

Hidden Hollywood: Seven Obscure Jewish Films

Tweet What’s a Jewish film? My definition is quite simple. It is a film that deals with Jewish subject matter. Thus, Woody Allen does not make Jewish films. In truth, Hollywood movies that do deal with Judaism are quite rare. Take a look at the subject headings in Netflix. There is no category for Jewish […]

10 Must See War Movies

Tweet There is no subject as well suited for the movies as war. In war there is conflict, love, and of course lots of action. Movies, said Hitchcock, are just like life, but with the boring parts cut out. Thus, movies about war delete the incredible boredom of most war-time experiences in favor of the […]

Friday Photos: True Hollywood Confessions

Tweet No, you have not fallen into a time warp. It is Wednesday. So: why Friday Photos today? The celebration of Succos starts tonight and continues into Shabbat. And because Orthodox Jews (that’s us) do not use electronics during these holidays you get Friday Photos early. We hope you enjoy this edition.
