Tinseltown wilting under historic
box office lows

New York Post, by Claire Atkinson

Original Article

Posted By:mitzi, 7/8/2014 12:38:17 AM

Welcome to the summer doldrums. Moviegoers have put Tinseltown on the grill this summer. After two spectacular record-breaking years, the July Fourth weekend’s box office just heaped on more summer misery at the multiplex. The holiday weekend saw a gigantic drop of 46 percent in box-office receipts for the top 12 movies, with little beyond “Transformers” drawing a crowd. Some of the publicly traded cinema companies fell Monday on the news. Boxofficemojo.com reports that total box-office take was $120.6 million; the last time it was that low was in 1999, when “South Park” was released and the July Fourth box-office

Re Transformers ... Someone tweeted a couple of days ago: Instead of going to see Transformers 4 I had the crazy guy who lives at the dump throw lawnmower parts and scream at me for three hours.

Those Hollywood liberals cheered the passage of Obamacare but they may come to regret it. Now that people are forced to pay more for health care they will have to cut back elsewhere and movies will be at the top of the list.

For the most part, movies have lost their entertainment value, so why pay to endure them? Most movies today are poorly written, and the cinematography and editing are awful. They used to tell a good story, which sadly, is a rarity these days.

Hollywood may never wake up to the fact that half of America isn´t keen on the idea of throwing away money to see their warped view of America, acted out by "stars" with a warped view of America. I hope they lose more ground next year.

Last time I saw a movie in a theater people were talking out loud and it was impossible to hear the soundtrack. I see new movies when they make it to cable or DVD. Batman, Spiderman, Transformers, etc. doesn´t do much for me. Godzilla? Even the one back in the 60s was awful. The only thing I miss is movie theater popcorn. It was delicious and nothing you can get in a store tastes like it. Asked a guy at the mall if I could just go in to buy popcorn but he told me I´d have to buy a movie ticket.

Transformers was too long and script was not interesting.
Jump 22 was fun-good script and actors.
As to rest of Hollywood- refuse to see movies with Clooney, Streep, Damon et al.
They seem to think that the " fans""Will pay to fund their leftist bs that is destroying America.
California politicians raise taxes and jobs flee.
Spielberg, Katzenberg Weinstein et al keep funneling money to Obama and his trannywife as he shuts down the roads and businesses suffer.
Enough.
The real drama is in Murietta as Obama continues his War on America.

Maybe we´re tired of their un-American baloney.

Not to mention the absurd ticket prices. When I watch the kinds of people going into our local theatre, I can´t help thinking they must have better things on which to spend that cash. But I guess that´s Hollywood´s game.

We refuse to reward Hollywood for creating the filth and pure evil in their minds into movies. Ultimately it goes into the hearts and minds of our children, thus destroys this country.....as we can now all see for ourselves. AND IF they create Bible movies........you can bet on it that they will infect it with their Leftist...Commie views to further infect the minds of people. No, IF we do want to see one of their movies....we get it at Red Box for a dollar.

In its heyday, Hollywood drew its screenplays and storylines from great books or actual events. Today the storylines are from comic books. Everybody is not that dumb. And the ´stars´ should keep their leftist politics to themselves. TCM is the only place to see movies with storylines, dialogue, and - thankfully -- a dearth of illogical, insanely loud, and silly special effects.

About time reality is catching up to these people. They are self-indulgent and make movies they want to see. The forgotten element is those who go to movies. Most go to be entertained. No such thing in movies anymore. It all has a message geared to liberals, actors who are terrible at the job and most of it is computer graphics. I wait for them to show up in Netflix. Saw one last weekend, Hours, and it was really good. Most, tho, I can´t even finish.

Those of us who used to love going to the movies are hard-pressed to find anything worth going to a theater for, let alone paying the horrific prices and enduring the chaos.

We aren´t even finding anything worthwhile at On Demand.

for Christians:

Therefore do not let sin reign in your mortal body so that you obey its lusts. Ro 6

Do not love the world nor the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16For all that is in the world, the lust of the flesh and the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life, is not from the Father, but is from the world. 17The world is passing away, and also its lusts; but the one who does the will of God lives forever. 1 John 2

Therefore if you have been raised up with Christ, keep seeking the things above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. 2Set your mind on the things above, not on the things that are on earth. 3For you have died and your life is hidden with Christ in God. Col 3

Finally, brethren, whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is of good repute, if there is any excellence and if anything worthy of praise, dwell on these things. Phill 4

13The conclusion, when all has been heard, is: fear God and keep His commandments, because this applies to every person. 14For God will bring every act to judgment, everything which is hidden, whether it is good or evil. Eccl 12

Senior U.S. intelligence officials said Tuesday that Russia was responsible for “creating the conditions” that led to the shooting down of Malaysia Airlines Flight 17, but they offered no evidence of direct Russian government involvement. The intelligence officials were cautious in their assessment, noting that while the Russians have been arming separatists in eastern Ukraine, the U.S. had no direct evidence that the missile used to shoot down the passenger jet came from Russia. The officials briefed reporters Tuesday under ground rules that their names not be used in discussing intelligence related to last week’s air disaster, which killed 298

Islamist militants in Iraq are reported to have seized an ancient monastery near Mosul and expelled the monks. Local residents said monks at the Mar Behnam monastery were allowed to take only the clothes they were wearing. The monastery, which dates from the 4th Century, is a major Christian landmark and a place of pilgrimage. Christians have fled Mosul after the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant (Isis) told them to convert to Islam, pay a tax or face death. Isis has seized large parts of Syria and Iraq and said last month it was creating an Islamic caliphate.

The women of The View are sick and tired of people using Bill Clinton’s mistresses to get in the way of Hillary Clinton’s presidential ambitions. At the top of Tuesday’s show Whoopi Goldberg introduced the topic: “You know, there’s a new book called The First Family Details: Secret Service Agents Reveal the Hidden Lives of Presidents. And it claims that Bill Clinton has a mistress that visits the house so often that when Hillary is out of town, they see her and they have nicknamed her The Energizer.” Guest host and former CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin led the charge

The last Christians have left one of their holiest cities, running from ISIS demands to become Muslim or be slain—but as a final indignity, their money and even crucifixes were stolen. After being issued an ultimatum from ISIS in Mosul, some of the city’s last Christian families have fled, only to be robbed of their last possessions at ISIS checkpoints. Friday at noon was the deadline for Christian families to meet ISIS’s demands: Convert to Islam, pay an anachronistic Islamic tax for non-Muslims known as jizya, leave Mosul, or be killed. But the day before the final exodus, Christians were

Decision just released in Halbig case. Here’s the punchline: Appellants are a group of individuals and employers residing in states that did not establish Exchanges. For reasons we explain more fully below, the IRS’s interpretation of section 36B makes them subject to certain penalties under the ACA that they would rather not face. Believing that the IRS’s interpretation is inconsistent with section 36B, appellants challenge the regulation under the Administrative Procedure Act (APA), alleging that it is not “in accordance with law.” 5 U.S.C. § 706(2)(A). ...Because we conclude that the ACA unambiguously restricts the section 36B

Convinced that their region has suffered as much Obama administration meddling as it can possibly stand, Israel and Egypt took the extraordinary step earlier this week of jointly rejecting requests by US Secretary of State John Kerry to involve himself in ceasefire talks with the terrorist group Hamas. Israeli and Egyptian diplomats both claim Egyptian efforts to mediate a ceasefire between Israel and Hamas collapsed as a direct result of Secretary Kerry’s announcement he was prepared to join the talks. He apparently made the announcement without first consulting either of the parties. The diplomats are convinced that their own

A pernicious, little-known Obama administration policy – one that that incentivizes adult illegal immigrants to use children as human shields to escape arrest and deportation at the border – largely has escaped the media’s notice. This same policy is driving the historic surge of children at the border, as everyone from coyotes to illegal immigrant adults already in America seeks to use children to guarantee their safe passage into the country, or to protect them from deportation if they are illegally living here. The flood of illegal immigrant children, piling up like human debris on the US border, won’t stop

In a potentially crippling blow to Obamacare, a federal appeals court panel declared Tuesday that government subsidies worth billions of dollars that helped 4.7 million people buy insurance on HealthCare.gov are illegal. The 2-1 ruling said such subsidies can be granted only to people who bought insurance in an Obamacare exchange run by an individual state or the District of Columbia—not on the federally run exchange HealthCare.gov. "Section 36B plainly makes subsidies available in the Exchanges established by states," wrote Senior Circuit Judge Raymond Randolph in his majority opinion, where he was joined by Judge Thomas Griffith.

Obama, in an interview with the New Yorker, said Biden "has seen the job up close, he knows what the job entails. He understands how to separate what´s really important from what´s less important.

The NAACP Legal Defense Fund has filed a class action lawsuit against the city of Detroit for water shutoffs that members claim are racially motivated. The Detroit Water and Sewerage Department stopped service to about 7,200 buildings with overdue bills in June, compared to 1,570 in the same month last year. The issue gained national attention last month after activists appealed to the United Nations for help. The shutoffs are “being done in a discriminatory fashion,” the NAACP’s Veronica Joice told a local CBS affiliate. “They should at least take a look at whether there’s a better way to do this that doesn’t affect the most vulnerable citizens

Days after IRS officials said in a sworn statement that former top agency employee Lois G. Lerner’s computer memory had been wiped clean, the agency put out word to contractors Monday that it needs help to destroy at least another 3,200 hard drives. The Internal Revenue Service solicitation for “media destruction” services reflects an otherwise routine job to protect sensitive taxpayer information, but it was made while the agency’s record destruction practices remain under a sharp congressional spotlight. Congressional investigators of the IRS targeting of conservative groups have been hampered by the unexplained destruction of emails and other records of Ms. Lerner,

WASHINGTON —Polarization and partisanship are a plague on American politics. Political scientists have found that the two parties have each grown more ideologically homogeneous since the 1970s. The Senate hasn’t been so polarized since Reconstruction; the House has not been so divided since around 1900. As measured by laws passed, the current Congress is on track to be among the least productive in our republic’s history. How did this happen? One of the main causes has not gotten enough attention: the party primary system. The reasons behind the shocking primary defeat last month of Representative Eric Cantor of Virginia, who

Perry will announce his plans Monday to mobilize some 1,000 guardsmen to the Rio Grande Valley to increase security at the border, according to the Monitor, a south Texas newspaper. The newspaper quoted a state senator and an internal memo it obtained from a state official’s office. Perry spokesman Felix Browne told The Washington Post he would neither confirm nor deny the report, but said all details will be given at a news conference at 2 p.m. Central time
