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.

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

Christian Patriarchs: International
Community Must ´Eradicate ISIL’

“The international community must act and eradicate ISIL” (Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant), Eastern Orthodox and Catholic patriarchs said in a strongly-worded statement from Lebanon Wednesday. “This is required from the United Nations and the U.N. Security Council,” the statement said. The patriarchs met in the Maronite Catholic patriarchate of Bkirki to discuss the plight of embattled Christians in the Middle East, who have been targeted for annihilation by ISIL. The meeting was attended by a number of Western diplomats and UN representatives. Following the meeting, Maronite Patriarch Beshara al-Rai´s envoy, Bishop Boulos Sayyah, read the statement aloud,

"I appreciate the opportunity to come on your show and explain" what the President Obama meant on Thursday, White House spokesman Josh Earnest told MSNBC´s "Morning Joe" on Friday. Earnest said President Obama may not have a strategy for "what we could do militarily in Syria," but "when it comes to confronting ISIL, the president´s made very clear that we do have a comprehensive strategy for confronting ISIL." That "comprehensive strategy" includes support for an inclusive Iraqi government; training and equipment for Iraqi and Kurdish security forces; and "engaging regional governments." It also includes U.S. military strikes in Iraq to

On Thursday, President Obama held a press conference in which he humiliated himself entirely on the question of America’s handling of the terror group ISIS. Explaining that he had to consult Congress and check the pulse of Americans, Obama stated, “I don’t want to put the cart before the horse. We don’t have a strategy yet.” Which begs the question: what the hell does this guy do for a living? ISIS has been on the move since April 2013, when Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi announced that ISIS was moving into Iraq as well as Syria. On June 29, 2014, ISIS announced

California has suffered the loss of 63 trillion gallons (or 240 gigatons) of water in the past 18 months, which has resulted in the ground literally rising by an average of .15 inches since last year. The lack of water has also resulted in the movement of California´s mountains, where the uplift has been most pronounced. According to the journal Science and the Washington Post, the mountains have risen as high as half an inch. As California´s drought continues to hit the Golden State, it´s reservoirs have also been affected. The drought has left one of California´s largest reservoirs, Lake

   

 



 
Ancient DNA Sheds New Light

The earliest people in the North American Arctic remained isolated from later arrivals to the region for millennia before vanishing more than 700 years ago, a new genetic analysis shows. The study, published online Thursday, also reveals that today´s Inuit and Native Americans of the Arctic are genetically distinct from the region´s first settlers. Inuit hunters in the Canadian Arctic have long told stories about a mysterious ancient people known as the Tunit, who once inhabited the far north. Tunit men, they recalled, possessed powerful magic and were strong enough to crush the neck of a walrus and singlehandedly haul

Despite how unsavory and barbaric Islamic groups and persons around the world have been behaving—whether Nigeria’s Boko Haram, Mesopotamia’s Islamic State, Somalia’s Shabaab—perhaps few things are as disgusting and cowardly as the Muslim rape of nuns: defenseless Christian women who sacrifice much of their lives to help sick and needy Muslims. The latest such attack comes from Bangladesh, which is over 90% Muslim in population. In early July, dozens of men armed with machetes, knives and iron rods attacked the convent of PIME (Pontifical Institute of Foreign Missions nuns in Boldipuku), a village mission in north Bangladesh. “The nuns were

The Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant commonly carries out public executions in its Syrian stronghold on Fridays, forcing children to watch as victims are beheaded or shot at close range. Corpses are then displayed on crucifixes and decapitated heads exhibited on sticks for days afterwards. The gruesome details are recorded in a new report released Wednesday by a U.N.-appointed independent panel investigating the Syrian conflict, now being described as “the world’s worst humanitarian catastrophe.” Amputations, the stoning to death of women by “ISIS-sanctioned” mobs, lashings with cables, and the recruitment of children as young as 10 to fight

Children as young as 12 are being given contraceptive implants by government health boards in Scotland, many without their parents’ knowledge, raising concerns over their vulnerability to sexual exploitation. The drugs have not been tested on minors, and the long term health effects of using these drugs on children are not known. But still almost 3,500 minors have received the long term contraceptive implant since 2010, the Daily Mail today reported. The manufacturer, MSD, has confirmed that the “safety and efficacy in adolescents under the age of 18 has not been established”. A Freedom of Information Act request established that

Henry admitted he was “stunned” that none of his colleagues in the briefing room followed up on that remark of the president’s, especially considering how quickly after the presser the White House jumped right into “damage control mode.” And whereas last night Henry blew Kelly’s mind by telling her Obama would be attending one fundraiser on Friday, he told her tonight that actually, it’s going to

CULLMAN, Ala. — California is looking to bar the “Stars and Bars.” A bill sits on Gov. Jerry Brown’s desk to ban California from displaying or selling the Confederate flag or objects with images of it. The state’s Legislature passed the bill nearly unanimously last week. Assemblyman Isadore Hall III, D-Compton, introduced the legislation after his mother discovered the Capitol gift shop sold a replica of Confederate money that contained a picture of the flag, according to the L.A. Times. The lone dissenting vote among the 67 cast was from former California GOP gubernatorial candidate Tim Donnelly of Twin Peaks. He argued

Karl Rove is at it once again. The so-called “strategist” is again confusing strategy with tactics, and is about to blow easy Senate pickups in Arkansas and North Carolina. This is not merely snatching defeat from the jaws of victory -- this is snatching defeat from the bowels of victory -- in astonishing tone-deaf fashion.

The last two Republican candidates for president have been among the weakest GOP candidates in 50 years. Barack Obama presented Mitt Romney with a gift in 2012: A struggling economy, sluggish growth, a paucity of jobs, and a health care law that was extremely unpopular. In what should have been a landslide rejection of Obama´s policies, Romney flubbed it big time and allowed his opponent to define him - and Republicans - in the most unflattering way imaginable. You would have hoped that Romney would have retired from the public arena and kept a low profile as other losers have done in

At least four hostages held in Syria by the Islamic State, including an American journalist who was recently executed by the group, were waterboarded in the early part of their captivity, according to people familiar with the treatment of the kidnapped Westerners. James Foley was among the four who were waterboarded several times by Islamic State militants who appeared to model the technique on the CIA’s use of waterboarding to interrogate suspected terrorists after the Sept. 11, 2001, attacks. The victims of waterboarding are often strapped down on gurneys or benches while cold water is poured over a cloth covering

intelligence community has observed a “significant increase” in chatter among terrorist organizations as the 13th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001 terrorist attacks nears. “We’ve noticed a significant increase in chatter among Islamic terrorist organizations overseas both on the Internet and phone lines,” a U.S. government official, speaking on condition of anonymity, told The Blaze. While the intelligence community can not pinpoint whether or not an attack is planned, the official said that agencies “did see this kind of increase in chatter before the September 11 attacks.”
