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

There’s an insight into Secretary of State Kerry’s view of Israel in the New Republic’s reprise of the collapse of the Obama administration’s attempt last year to broker a peace with the Palestinian Arabs. It came when the secretary suddenly started lecturing Prime Minister Netanyahu about Indochina. “When I fought in Vietnam, I used to look at the faces of the local population and the looks they gave us,” Mr. Kerry said. “I’ll never forget it. It gave me clarity that we saw the situation in completely different ways.” “This isn’t Vietnam!” Mr. Netanyahu shouted, according to the account in

Iraq’s Kurds want U.S. help to

Irbil, Iraq — Each day, Kurdish security forces­ in northern Iraq skirmish with fearsomely armed Islamic State militants along their new, nearly 650-mile border. The Kurds have held their own so far. But without new arms supplies or financial assistance, their fight is unsustainable, a senior Kurdish official said. Masrour Barzani, the Kurdistan Regional Government’s intelligence and security chief, described his forces as “overstretched.” In an interview this week, he called on the United States to provide direct military assistance to his semi­autonomous region, which he said has been left to fight the extremists unaided.

Just for once, wouldn’t it be great if President Obama actually defended American business, instead of attacking it? Just once? Wouldn’t it be great if Mr. Obama acknowledged that U.S. firms are overburdened by the highest corporate tax rate among developed countries, and as a result are becoming less and less competitive? Wouldn’t it be great if he said he wants to fix this tax imbalance in order to grow the economy faster and give U.S. businesses a leg up on the global scene? Couldn’t he just say that? He could say it like this: “Look, I don’t want to

Did Obamacare architect Jonathan Gruber make the same mistake twice? A new audio clip finds him once again explaining that Obamacare subsidies are tied to state health exchanges. A clip of Jonathan Gruber circulated last night in which he states that Obamacare subsidies are tied to the existence of state exchanges. This statement is extremely problematic for the law´s supporters because it appears to confirm the view of plaintiffs in the Halbig case, i.e. that only state-exchanges were intended to deliver subsidies. This morning Gruber told the New Republic´s Jonathan Cohn that he doesn´t know why he said it at

The highest human rights court in Europe has told European LGBTs that they have no human right to same-sex marriage, in a case that also shows how complicated sexual and marital norms have become in this new transsexual world. The case arose after a man in Finland, who was married with a child, decided he wanted to live as a woman. After a sex-change operation, he attempted to change his governmental "male identity number" to a female one. He was turned down because, according to law, he needed his wife´s consent to change their man-woman marriage to a "registered partnership",

In an otherwise excellent article on the Hamas terror tunnel network in Gaza, the Jerusalem Post buries the lede. An Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldier in the field told the Post that while Hamas fighters offered fierce resistance when the ground operation began, now Hamas operatives are fleeing, abandoning their positions, leaving behind weapons and other material that the IDF is using to expand its assault on the terror group. The source added that in recent days, a recognizable wave of demoralization has washed over Hamas´s combat battalions. "They simply escape, leaving behind weapons and suicide bomb vests that were

In fact, it might already have run out. The Christians in Mosul have already fled, and those remaining in Nineveh and other areas of Iraq have until Saturday to make their choice to pay jizya, convert, or be put to death. While ISIS conducts an ethno-religious cleansing of Iraq, the ancient Christian communities there wonder when the West will at least speak out: He and the rest of northern Iraq’s multitude of Christian sects have plenty of reason to worry about the self-proclaimed Islamic caliphate that’s taken hold in much of northern and western Iraq and eastern Syria since Mosul

Levin is a talk radio giant and conservative hero (“The Great One,” as Sean Hannity describes him).

Perry shared these shocking numbers on the current crisis. “Sean, there have been over the course of the last five years, since the fall of ’08, over 203,000 individuals who have come into Texas illegally who have been booked into our county jails. Those individuals have accounted for over 3,000 homicides and over 8,000 sexual assaults. We can’t afford to wait for Washington to secure this border. We’ve had enough.”

The president’s demeanor is worrying a lot of people. From the immigration crisis on the Mexican border to the Islamic State rising in Mesopotamia, Barack Obama seems totally detached from the world’s convulsions. When he does interrupt his endless rounds of golf, fundraising and photo ops, it’s for some affectless, mechanical, almost forced public statement. Regarding Ukraine, his detachment — the rote, impassive voice — borders on dissociation. His U.N. ambassador, Samantha Power, delivers an impassioned denunciation of Russia. Obama cautions that we not “get out ahead of the facts,” as if the facts of this case — Vladimir Putin’s

ST. LOUIS – The nation´s third botched execution in six months offers more evidence for the courts that lethal injection carries too many risks and amounts to cruel and unusual punishment, death-row lawyers and other opponents said Thursday. Death-penalty opponents say the execution of an Arizona inmate who took two hours to die shows that state experiments with different drugs and dosages are a callous trial-and-error process. The result: Every few months, an inmate gasps, chokes and takes an unusually long time to die. "These executions are experiments on human subjects," said Cheryl Pilate, an attorney for several Missouri death-row

According to a CNN/ORC International poll released Friday, 33 percent of Americans think the president should be impeached and removed from office, compared with 65 percent who say they don’t support impeachment. Fifty-seven percent of Republicans say they support impeaching Obama, compared with just 35 percent of independent voters and 13 percent of Democrats. When asked about when Congress should attempt to impeach a president, 79 percent of Americans said it should only be used if there is evidence of a serious crime — such as

Senior White House advisers are taking very seriously the possibility that Republicans in Congress will try to impeach President Obama, especially if he takes executive action to slow deportations.
