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.

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

MarketWatch reports today that President Barack Obama will exert tight personal control over US airstrikes against the Islamic State in Syria. The U.S. military campaign against Islamist militants in Syria is being designed to allow President Barack Obama to exert a high degree of personal control, going so far as to require that the military obtain presidential sign-off for strikes in Syrian territory, officials said.

Doctors in the rebel held north of Syria fear tainted measles vaccinations killed 36 children. The United Nations provided the shots in the rebel-held north. The children in Jirjanaz and Maaret al-Nouman showed symptoms only an hour after they received the shot. "It´s very bad," said UOSSM coordinator Daher Zidan. “The figures of dead go into the 30s. Children are dying very quickly. We think it will get worse." The World Health Organization (WHO) wanted over 1.6 million children to receive the shot. They could not confirm how many children received the tainted vaccinations. Physician Abdullah Ajaj said it was

All this chatter about how we should, or should not, go about degrading and defeating the terrorist blitzkrieg of ISIS is one of the most bizarre things we´ve seen in ears [sic]. It must be regarded by our enemies as a kind of manna. The Times just issued an editorial bellyaching about the possibility of ground troops and warning we’re on a slippery slope to getting involved in another land war in the Middle East.

NFL running back Jonathan Dwyer was deactivated by the Arizona Cardinals Wednesday after he was arrested for aggravated assault in yet another domestic violence allegation against an NFL star, multiple reports said. The 25-year-old running back was arrested in Phoenix for aggravated assault and preventing someone from calling 911, according to CBS News. The violent episode took place in July between Dwyer and a woman he has a relationship with, according to AZCentral. He was arrested Wednesday after an investigation, the site said.

Just hours after apologizing for using what was perceived as an anti-Semitic slur, Vice President Joe Biden deployed another term Wednesday that some might consider ethnically offensive. Speaking at a campaign finance reform rally in Iowa, Biden recalled a meeting he had with Lee Kuan Yew of Singapore. Biden described Yew as “the wisest man in the Orient.” The terms “orient” and “oriental” are considered widely outdated and offensive to Asians. Earlier in the day, Biden apologized for having recently described opportunistic bankers as “Shylocks,” a reference to a greedy Jewish money loaner in an Shakespearean play.

GENEVA — The Ebola virus outbreak in West Africa risks ballooning into a humanitarian catastrophe without a major surge in international efforts to contain it, senior United Nations officials said Tuesday, estimating the cost of this effort at $1 billion. The number of people affected by the disease is still rising at an “almost exponential” rate, Bruce Aylward, an assistant director general of the World Health Organization, said at a news conference in Geneva. He said the number of reported cases had climbed to 4,985, including 2,461 deaths. Half of the infections and deaths occurred in the past 21 days,

I’m old enough to remember when worrying about the ebola outbreak was said to be the business of paranoid hysterics. It’s not that bad of an outbreak, ebola’s not terribly contagious, it’ll never come to the United States, and if it does we’re totally ready to kick its microscopic ass with containment teams ready to swoop in as soon as highly-trained TSA agents notice air passengers with any of the symptoms. It’s not even worth talking about. Just ignore ebola and it will go away. That was then, and this is now. The Washington Post reports that President Obama has

New questions over abortion

WASHINGTON — A nonpartisan congressional agency is raising new questions about compliance with a key compromise on abortion that allowed the federal health care law to pass in 2010. The Government Accountability Office said in a report released late Monday that only 1 of 18 insurers it reviewed was separately itemizing a charge for coverage of elective abortions on enrollees’ bills. That detail is important because the original compromise that President Barack Obama sealed with anti-abortion Democrats stipulated that no federal funds would be used to pay for elective abortions. Instead, private health plans covering the procedure would collect a

A village of just 1,000 residents in Switzerland has been forced to raise taxes because an African refugee and her seven children cost the local authority £40,000 in benefits every month. Hagenbuch, in the Swiss canton of Zurich, is understood to be spending close to a third of its total annual budget on the family after they arrived from Eritrea in East Africa three years ago. The massive benefits bill covers day-to-day living expenses such as groceries and cleaning costs, as well as paying for four of the woman´s children to be housed in an orphanage and even bills for
