It’s been a common decision in our house: If you are a movie star, and you decide to put down the common folks who spend the big money to go see your movies, then we don’t have to give you our money.
Stallone, has been getting on my nerves lately. Yo Rocky…What happened to you? Too many punches in the head?
Stallone has made most of his money simply because he has appealed to the conservative Americans. Rocky was all about individual hard work and the theme that, in America, you CAN be the champ if you work hard enough. And he went on to milk the American’s are really good guys themes…in fact he has always had those themes running throughout his movies. It’s the REASON they were successful.
And yet, when he talks on his own time, he sounds like a wimpy liberal kiss-ass Obama puppet. During the Trayvon Martin trail, he said no Americans needed to own a gun.
Gee..can the word hypocrisy get any bigger?
Stallone gleefully announced yesterday that Willis had been booted from “The Expendables” summer franchise, calling him a greedy, lazy jerk. The “Rocky” actor tweeted: “WILLIS OUT… HARRISON FORD IN !!!! GREAT NEWS !!!!! Been waiting years for this!!!!” Not satisfied with simply showing Willis the door, Stallone added this parting Twitter shot: “GREEDY AND LAZY …… A SURE FORMULA FOR CAREER FAILURE.”
Are these guys that stupid? Does Stallone think that the people who go to see his movies, are going to want to fork out money to see the liberal lover Harrison Ford?
Sly might be in for a surprise. In fact, the whole movie industry is in shock..NOBODY IS GOING TO THE Movies! Spielberg has even predicted the industry won’t be able to survive.
And it’s has much more to do with rebellion than content. It’s not just the movies that are suffering…the cities newspapers are falling like dead flies off an electrical grid. The Boston Globe and the Washington Post were recently sold at a loss, and I’m waiting for the Post Dispatch to go, because they almost have to give it away here in St. Louis.
So, what’s up?
Rush Limbaugh had it right today….the real reason the newspapers (and the movies) are going out of business is because people, like me, were sick of opening up their morning paper and seeing whole pages devoted to some poor African village starving, and how horrible America was in not sending the world all its money.
The leftist Marxist took over all the newspapers in America, the people stopped buying them, and they wonder why.
It’s the same reason the movies are bombing…
Hey, I’ll stay home and watch reruns of Tom Selleck as Jesse Stone, who I know is a patriot, rather than spend money on Sylvester Stallone blowing up another village in some third world country, all the while saying in real life, he doesn’t believe in that sort of thing.
I thought the first Expendables was great—But I will never pay to see another movie of Sly Stone’s no matter how much I want to.
The man, is a coward, a fraud, and an American sellout. Let him move to China.
Nobody Wins when Hollywood is just another mouthpiece for government propaganda. Sorry Sly—I doubt that Bruce Willis’s career will suffer.
After all, if there is one mega- movie star that has shot more people in sheer volume alone it’s ROCKY….who has come out and supported Obama’s new gun laws:
“I know people get (upset) and go, `They’re going to take away the assault weapon.’ Who … needs an assault weapon? Like really, unless you’re carrying out an assault. … You can’t hunt with it. … going to attack your house, a (expletive) army?”
It [2nd Amendment] has to be stopped, and someone really has to go on the line, a certain dauntless political figure, and say, ‘It’s ending, it’s over, all bets are off. It’s not 200 years ago, we don’t need this anymore, and the rest of the world doesn’t have it. Why should we?”
Sylvester Stallone on Access Hollywood, June 8, 1998
Now…either nobody has ever pointed a REAL bullet at Stallone’s head, or he is spending just a bit too much time in his mansion in Miami, where he has untold millions hanging in rare art, and the best security apparatus that money can buy, and he feels perfectly safe. Nobody also Wonders what he’s been reading lately.
Nevertheless…I don’t care HOW good his movies are, I don’t intend to ever spend another dime on any of his movies…and…something tells me millions of people feel the same way, after he said this:
Sylvester Stallone’s “Bullet to the Head” is the latest slam-bang misfire, taking in just $4.5 million over the weekend for Warner Bros. That was even worse than Arnold Schwarzenegger’s “The Last Stand,” which managed just $7.2 million in its debut earlier this month, and Jason Statham’s “Parker,” which opened to $7 million two weeks ago.
Now… “Good Day to Die Hard,” the Bruce Willis film from Fox, opens on Feb. 14, and the critics are saying that it won’t make any money. They are saying people are tired of actions films. But…Bruce Willis, having a bit more brains than Sly, said this:
“I think that you can’t start to pick apart anything out of the Bill of Rights without thinking that it’s all going to become undone,” Willis told The Associated Press in a recent interview while promoting his latest film, “A Good Day To Die Hard.” ”If you take one out or change one law, then why wouldn’t they take all your rights away from you?” “It’s a difficult thing and I really feel bad for those families,” he said. “I’m a father and it’s just a tragedy. But I don’t know how you legislate insanity. I don’t know what you do about it. I don’t even know how you begin to stop that.”
Spoken like a true patriot.
Now…If Stallone thinks that banning guns is going to keep the inner city gangs from getting them, then he has been eating too many steroid bananas down on the Obama plantation.
Yes, Sly…it’s a good day for you to die-hard at the box office. Hope you’re enjoying your own self imposed hypocritical economical bullet to your own head.
But hey! Nobody appreciates your honesty..and thanks for saving me money to spend on a better man. I DO appreciate it.
