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.
(Written before the Oscars, but I’ve updated…in places)
Nobody will argue, that Lincoln will probably walk away with the most Oscars tonight, for the simple reason that Spielberg is a genius, and nobody can tell a story and bring it to life as well as he can.
It should win easily. But then again…Hillary and Kerry are rooting for Argo. Isn’t that a first in American history? Politicians publically announcing their favorite to win an Oscar?
Politics are in almost all the movies in contention for the Oscar tonight, and if ARGO wins over Lincoln, one might assume that Hillary Clinton and John Kerry had something to do with it. I haven’t seen it, but I’m sure it glorifies the State Department, and is more than likely, a propaganda film, to make everyone forget the horror Hillary’s State Department made in Benghazi
(It’s also not historically true. It was the Canadians who got the people out, says Jimmy Carter, who was President at the time.)
More times that I can count, Obama’s PR machine has been put him on the fronts of magazines portraying him as Lincoln, or FDR— the two Presidents in past history who, more than any others, ignored the Constitution and gave themselves overwhelming powers. Powers not intended for them to have. They simply took it. FDR, with his NEW DEAL, had become such a dictator, Congress passed the 22nd amendment to keep that from ever happening again.
Last week in the Washington Post, Tom Fox wrote an editorial called, “Why Presidents Need to be Exploiters” to support the idea that in crisis, President should always take advantage and extent their powers.
The public almost never moves in the president’s direction if there is division in the country. It is difficult to reach most citizens, overcome their predispositions and combat a vocal opposition. When FDR found Congress extraordinarily responsive to the crisis, (depressions and war) he effectively exploited this opportunity and rapidly passed the original New Deal. He did not try to create an opportunity; instead, he brilliantly exploited one. This is presidential effectiveness. (Can I gag here?)
In other words, whenever a man sees a chance to take more power…go for it.
And since this Nobody thinks nothing is a coincidence when it comes to politics, I think both Lincoln and Argo were made to promote the Obama administration in Washington. Argo, the State Department, and Lincoln—Obama. ALL of Congress got special viewings.
The movie Lincoln plays heavily in Obama’s favor, and this is why. The message coming out of that movie was that ONE President, bribed, broke laws, ignored the Constitution, because his Congress was too stupid and prejudiced. He did it to abolish slavery…, therefore, we should forgive him. Presidents should always be allowed to break the law when necessary for the greater good.
FDR gets the same pass. We were in a war, he expanded the government into the overgrown elephant we have today. Johnson added the Great Society. You could say the same about George W. Bush, who created the government program we will all come to fear someday, called, Homeland Security, all by himself. With the stroke of a pen.
Historically, Presidents have been expanding their powers whenever they could “exploit” the moment.
How many times have we heard Obama say that if Congress doesn’t get something he wants done..he will do it himself? Too many for my taste.
And he does it— Triples our debt, and makes Czars, and starts wars. His mission is to dismantle the country, the America he does not like, and reshape it in his own Marxist Utopian, and some say European, image.
For instance: He thought up the sequester, which of course cuts the military in two, and then, when it comes times to vote, he ups the ante and says he wants MORE taxes, so that the Republicans will NOT vote for it, and he gets exactly what he wants.
The office of the Presidency has grown too much power, and because impeachment is so rare, just one President can destroy the country…and we are watching that happen.
Lincoln broke the law, but it was for a good cause. The country is once again divided. Obama breaks the law, but not for some good cause, —NOT to unit and keep us together, but to further push the country into communism.
And that’s the dangerous message Lincoln and Spielberg bring: Give him the power. But Obama is NO Lincoln. The very fact that he is being allowed to kill anyone with his drones, makes him a dictator.
Did Steven Spielberg make Lincoln to hint that Obama is there to guide a divided nation into what’s good for them? Or did he just want to point out that all politics are corrupt?
UPDATE: Okay, I was right. Liam Nelsion just introduced Lincoln as a President who has to rule over a gridlocked Congress.(Hint…hint, our congress is gridlocked over sequestration)
Katzenberg , one of the biggest producers in Hollywood, said they make movies to influence the world.
Hollywood works for Obama now. And if you don’t believe that, then if you watched it to the end you saw, for the first time in History,
THE WHITE HOUSE, VIA MICHELLE OBAMA, ANNOUNCING BEST PICTURE OF THE YEAR.
(Along with the usual politically correct we must all behave message)
Argo won Movie of the Years…Ben Affleck, the laughing stock of Hollywood, is now the King of the world. Hillary and Kerry will be thrilled….they threw the down and out kid, a bone….
Put that in your Oscar and smoke it
Here’s the question that I can’t find an answer to anywhere. We all know that companies pay to put product placement in our movies. Sometimes a company can pay up to a million dollars for a 4 second shot. God knows, we’ve seen just about every single movie star on the planet open up an Apple computer. Not to mention, all those big Hollywood stars who are health and fitness nuts can be found puffing away on cigarettes…and you have to wonder how much they got paid to do that. And if they even had a choice to refuse?
But.. the real question I have is: Does our government use taxpayers money to put politically correct propaganda in our movies? Or…do the producers of these movies demand the writers of the scripts represent the views they believe in? How many times have we seen movies promoting the favorite liberal cause of the day?
For example: The movie The Thaw with Val Kilmer is a Sci-fi film about a global warming professor who goes to report the ice caps melting, which was caused because the selfish “man” will not sacrifice his own life habits to save the planet….and because of THAT, a rare virus is let out, one that could destroy the world. There are so many, “Why don’t people SEE?” lines in the movie, the plot becomes almost secondary. If not for the excellent work done by the “bug” people, the movie would not be worth seeing. Val does not mention the fact that even if everyone in the United States went back to living in caves, China and India’s pollution would more than make up for our sacrifices.
Another example: The Dilemma…probably the worst movie Opie has ever made. It’s about two best buddies who come up with an electric car that SOUNDS and vibrates like an old-fashioned Ford Mustang. Now, I don’t know if Ron Howard got together with Obama and the boys from VOLT…to try and get America excited about electric cars, but the plot outside the many plugs for the electric cars is so stupid and lame, you can’t decide if the movie is supposed to be a comedy, or some kind of angst that Ron had happen in his own life and he just decided to combine the two.
The one best friend is very upset that his best friend’s wife having an affair. He confronts her and she tells him that he is going to a massage parlor every Thursday, and so she started the affair because he was not having sex with her…but with the massage therapist. Somehow, at the end of the movie, you get the feeling that she, his wife, (played Winona rider) is a slut, but the husband is not…I guess because he pays for it.
Message: If men pay for sex, they are not committing adultry….it’s permitted, which shows you just how far that women’s movement went.
So, the best buddy, Vince Vaughn, gets them both exposed, and they get divorced, and by the end of the movie they get their contract for their great electric car inventon…and you go: Okay. None of this was funny. Is this…dark humor? What am I missing here, besides the fact that they paid someone to come up with some kind of lame plot, but the real reason for the movie is to sell the concept of electic cars to the masses.
Which brings me back to my point: What came first? The chicken or the egg? Does Hollywood get PAID to put out all these crappy social engineering movies from our government? Or do they do it, because our government will make them all pay BIG taxes on their dividends?
Who is sleeping with who, and how deep is the money pit?
Nobody Wants to Know.
Nobody Flashes Fred Astaire
Nobody was watching this movie today, and this dance with Fred and Ginger left me breathless. Fred was a genius when it came to innovating. That kind of grace you will NEVER see on Dancing With the Stars.
If you do, call me. Fred and Ginger had what you call: grace. And they danced with “feeling” and that’s what made them artists. You just don’t see that anymore anywhere.
The first video is the modern version done by Robert Palmer…and the bass is killer. He did a great job updating it, and adding the dance scences…but…
Here’s the original: It literally broke my heart: the beauty of this timeless piece of art: the way he is going to kill himself, and she is going to kill herself, and then…well, you have to be a hopeless romantic to miss the days of long ago when women dressed and men dressed and they…held each other close and danced. It fit perfect with much that is going on. Life is tough: Let’s face the music and dance.
Tonight I was in the arms of Fred Astaire….you can be in the arms of Ginger. It only takes a little imagination: Enjoy.
“Money gave me exactly what I wanted, power over others.”—Oscar Wilde
Today it was released on CNN that Obama is leading in campaign donations. He has about $220 million to spend as compared to that snobby, rich, job-busting, mean capitalist-leading Republican Romney, who has only $56 million.
It helps when you don’t have to pay for your own travel expenses.
While they say most of the donations are in small amounts, from all the millions who love him..Nobody Wonders if those ‘small’ amounts are coming from some Saudi King laundered into a “democratic NGO” of some kind.
Really, if it’s the poor minorities, who voted 95 percent for Obama in the last election where they claim he gets the bulk of it, somehow it’s hard to imagine 16 percent of the population donating even $50 dollars apiece. The math doesn’t add up. Besides, most of his following are in the unemployed 45 percent. So, the man who claims to be with the poor man is actually getting more cash from the rich, like his friends in Hollywood and Wall Street (as it is being reported) than the Republicans. But, he doesn’t want you to know that.
The man who hates the rich actually has some rich friends that he adores. Two of his favorite friends are –
Beyonce not only sang at his inauguration ball, she is helping Michelle with her “move on” program. And to set a fine example for their “race,” Beyonce and her husband Jay-Z just spent $1.5 million dollars spoiling their new little baby, Blue Ivy. She has a $15,000 Swarovski high chair, a $22,000 crib, a $600,000 solid gold rocking horse, and a mini Bugatti Car.
George Lucas, is another great bud. He not only leant the furry Chewbacca to help the Obama’s out on their favorite holiday at the White house, he has made a film to help his old buddy out, called Red Tail. It’s a film to encourage the young black boys who are sitting around watching football to join the Air Force and military.
“I wanted to make it inspirational for teenaged boys. I wanted to show that they have heroes, they’re real American heroes, they’re patriots that helped to make the country what it is today. And it’s not Glory where you have a lot of white officers running these guys into cannon fodder. It’s like a real, they were real heroes.”
Unfortunately, Hollywood didn’t want to make it, because it would not make a profit…evidently the rest of the world is racist, not only America..or it’s because it’s jingoistic— as Lucas admits. Yes America, Lucas, who is a liberal, has made you a war movie.
Lucas continued, “It’s a reasonably expensive movie. Normally black movies, say Tyler Perry movies or something, you know, they’re very low budget, and, even they won’t release his movies. It goes to the lower, not major distributors. And they do well, but they do a certain amount of money, and they know what that is, and this cost more than those movies make.And they don’t believe there’s any foreign market for it. That’s 60 percent of their profit.”
Right. George Lucas, a man who made his billions off of that exact capitalistic concept; wants everyone else to be a socialist. Make the movie, even if it is a flop. We need to influence our black youth to join up, get a free education, and become Americans. Not a bad idea really. But, why should they? They can get a free education without joining the army. Obama really is a master. He got Lucas to make a film help him shore up his upcomng plans for a military of young black men, with his OWN money. The “Jews” in Hollywood, that have always dropped their millions into democratic coffers are racists. That’s basically what Lucas is saying.
Well, then Mel Gibson can claim they hate Christians also, because they wouldn’t fund HIS movie “Passion” either.
Coming from a man who took a character named Jar -Jar Binks and put him in his Star Wars episode to be the most perfect modern “Negros” stereotype ever invented in the modern world…a character who you not only had trouble understanding when he talked, but acted stupid and dumb…well, that’s mighty white of him. I’m sure all the black children in the world understood Jar- Jar perfectly. The rest of us had trouble.
What Lucas doesn’t tell the black youth is that war makes cannon fodder out of everyone: the color of your skin really doesn’t matter. And uh…we have a black military general. And a BLACK commander-in-chief, who will think nothing of sending those black boys to Iran and cannon fodder.
Nobody Wonders: Who ARE these people?
Not too long ago, Obama reversed a law saying that you could not sell horses for food here in the United States. I was so angry…that I wrote about it here. Horses are noble creatures. They have carried men through battle, plowed his fields, gave him pleasure….forever it seems.
And so, when I saw this film, I was more than relieved…that Steven Spielberg has come out with a true story about the nobleness of the horse. Not only is this film filled with beautiful cinematography, it’s a masterpiece of storytelling.
The movie is about a Scottish farmer who buys a horse that is useless to him, but his son and the horse bond for life. When the first World War comes, the father sells the horse to keep his farm. The boy, later joins up and goes to France, to look for the horse, and you know that in the end…they find each other in No Man’s Land, by some great synchronicity in life, which often really happens.
Towards the end of the movie, the horse finally gets free of his German Masters (How he got into the German Hands I won’t say, you’ll have to find out.) and runs through the barbed wire of No Man’s Land where he gets stuck, and a German AND an Englishman go out and both work together to free Joey. The scene is Speilburg’s way of telling us all: men can be good—war is bad.
To Spielberg’s credit, it’s not a political film. It makes no judgement, but shows the true goodness of horse and men. It also shows the immense cruelty and horror of war, without showing any blood.
This movie will make you cry….and it will make you understand the horse…by seeing the world through the eyes of Joey.
Spielberg has made the most amazing film: Jaws, Encounters of the Third Kind, Saving Private Ryan, Schindler’s’ List, Amistad, Back to the Future, Indiana Jones, ET…and now this. Unlike James Cameron, who used his movie Avatar to climb into the liberal global warming bandwagon…Speilburg doesn’t do that in movies. He never takes political sides.
And yet, he, and all his Hollywood friends fill the campaign coffers of Obama: A man who sides against the Jews. A man who just put horse meat on the menu: A man who put human beings into the grave if they are over 70, and go to the hospital. In Obamacare, they will be called ‘Units” and denied lifesaving care.
It’s true. They will not only shoot horses, but in Obamacare..anyone over 70. Just not with a bullet. (Unless of course, you are in Congress.)
As a filmmaker..Speilburg will remain a master of masters. But Nobody Wonders…how can he be so moral, tell such patriotic stories, put his considerable time and talent into making films about the honest, the noble, the good, and the evil of mankind, and then give millions to the very people who will promote exactly the opposite of every story of nobleness he has every told?
Any man who can say horses are food, and old people are no longer given a right to live, is evil.
How? And why?
Does our government actually OWN the great directors? Do the rich of Hollywood give money to protect their right to make what they want? Is that why?
Steven may not be perfect…because he gives such vast amounts of his money to Obama, who is the antitheses to all he shows us in his movies: but War Horse is a movie that can be watched forever more. It’s a perfect film. And I hope everyone in the world see it, and fights to save the noble horse from becoming simply meat for China. We need more horses on the planet, not less.
Go see it…and take your children. Better have some tissue.
–That I was bored of politics yesterday and watched this little documentary. I many never drink Coke again…and I’ll tell you in a minute about that.
The guy that made this movie, (forgive me if don’t I tell you– I REALLY don’t want to remember his name) reminds me of my next door neighbor. He always borrows my lawn tools and forgets to give them back. Only in America can a guy make a movie about getting major corporations to give him thousands of dollars to put their products IN the movie, which is about him getting $1.5 million dollars to make what is basically—just a big advertisement for their products.
1. POM (the major sponsor) is good for men’s erections. (Yes, that was the big one.)
2. Product placement in movies can sometimes help carry the cost when the budgets are so big.
3. Advertising is almost never honest.
4.. Quentin Tarantino has a hard time getting ANY major spongers.
5. Even Ralph Nader is a sucker for free stuff, bribes, and payoffs.
6. If you just even LOOK at the logo of Coca Cola, your endorphins in your brain will shoot sky high, you will start salivating, fall on the floor, crave wild sex with Kevin Costner, and need to be taken away by the police…..
Just kidding—You might not do that , but you will want to drink one. The MRI’s prove it.
7. I also learned that they know if you get kids young enough loving McDonalds, you can program them to want McDonalds for the rest of their lives. I ought to know: whenever I’m stressed I want McDonalds. In fact, I had it for dinner tonight…a quarter pounder (no cheese) with a Coke. My mother must have bought me McDonalds when I was sick when I was a kid, because it’s the only food that makes me feel better.
Obviously this means…OMG! I’m addicted!
So…Nobody asks: How can a “logo” put your brain in addiction mode?
This from Kevin Trudeau’s Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About.”
Food manufacturers are knowingly putting chemicals into the food that cause the consumer to become physically addicted to it. Chemicals are being added to our food that actually make us gain weight. Since our brains are mostly fat, a large percentage of these chemicals accumulate there over the years.
And if commercials about food, cars, cigarettes, vodka, drugs, and car insurance aren’t enough to drive us all into zombie- fat no-brain land, let’s not forget all the subliminal political messages they put in all the sitcoms and movies.
They are not only advertising products, they are advertising political parties.
Last week Michelle Obama made a guest appearance on Nickelodium to push the Obama’s big campaign suck up to the military. (see video below) Yes, they have to get some white votes somehow.
They could be doing this for two reason: It’s an election year, and they want to convince the conservatives..whose families are in the military, that they like them, or 2. They are planning to attack Iran and need more soldiers before the year is out. The ones coming home will not want to go back out there: back to the deserts, and the camels, and the Muslim busting stress, where a McDonald’s Super-Sized Big Mac Meal, topped off with a cold delicious chocolate shake is hard to come by.
Can you blame them?
Either way, when the top family in the country can manipulative the masses with guest appearances on TV shows…Nobody Wonders: Who pays who? Does the President always get free air time, when others have to PAY to appear?
How fair is that? Is Newt Gingrich going to get free air time on MTV? Also, did Michelle Obama PAY to have the kids call her “Your excellency”? Or did she…demand it be written in the script?Nobody Knows.
And then… I’ll surely remember his name.
Not since the bird flu pandemic (did you get it?) have we needed another movie to remind us all, that at any moment, the earth’s population could be cut in half with a virus. It could spread so fast, that within months, body bags would run out, and the best thing to do would be to stay in your house, and pray someone with a gun doesn’t break in and kill you for your food.
Or eat you for food.
My husband and I needed a reprieve from the fact that we didn’t have money to go on a vacation, and we thought, “Surely we can go to a flick.” since the Bahamas was out of the question.
Everyone else must have been in the Bahamas because we were the only ones there. And that’s in the WHOLE movie theater which has 18 huge cinemas and an IMAX.
(Nobody is making this up… not this time.)
I suggested we go see Contagion, because we both like Matt Daman. Nobody has a theory that movie stars come onto the scene in very popular conservatives movies, grab the loyalty of the diehard intelligent people they need to change, and then..turn into liberal idiots. Then we are all totally surprised that they have cauliflower for brains.
Matt Damon stared in the Borne Identity movies, which are all great. He then came out just recently and started talking about unions and how much we need them. (I’d better stop right now, because in my head I can think of dozens of entertainers who have always promoted the old conservative themes, and then came out flaming red, and insulting the very people who go to see their films.)
“Red is the color that my baby wore, and once more it’s true…yes it is.” Sorry, I had a Beatle moment.
So, back to the movie. Matt Damon plays the main character whose wife catches a deadly virus when she was in Hong Kong, and then infects a lot of people at a casino and the whole world becomes infected. People can’t get the vaccines except by lottery, in other words, it shows you what would happen if there really was an outbreak. Marshall Law is moved in right away. And get this: the real scientists of the world claim this movie is right on track.
As far as movies goes, this one was just okay. My husband was severely disappointed because he was expecting Zombies.(BIG Zombie lover) I wanted to see it because I suspected it was going to be another “lesson.”
Nobody Thinks I was right.
It was more like a…you know, this might happen, and the government and Homeland Security will take years to get out the vaccines, but in the end it will be done, because they are all good people. Elites will get it first. People, will die. But, that’s life folks.
Okay—Nobody prefers the government conspiracy movies, but there were no government conspiracies in this movie. At the end, all the suspicions that this virus was some kind of germ warfare was put to rest when the camera zooms in on a bat, and a pig…the real culprits. Honest…last scene. That’s your lesson.
The scene that upset me the most is when a government guy (Played by Lawrence) decided that maybe putting the vaccine in the water would be a good idea, because they did put fluoride in it for our benefit. I’ve read too much about the harmful side effects of fluoride to go there.
I know, you may say that at this point in my life that Nobody is getting too suspicious. Nobody reasons that the more you know, the more you see, and the less you can enjoy it. This happened to me long ago when I took Art Appreciation in college. I got an A, and then every time I looked at a painting afterwards, I would dissect it…I could tell you who did it, what period it was from, HOW they painted it..etc.. Then one day, I realized…I simply did not enjoy the beauty of art any longer. I couldn’t look at a simple sunset without going into all the details in my mind.
So, I forgot everything I knew about it,—on purpose. It took me years to forget it, I had to unlearn what I had learned. Nobody Thinks I’m becoming so good at spotting all the propaganda in everything now, that I find it hard to enjoy movies anymore. I know millions of others probably feel the same way.
But this time, I will be saved from myself by mother nature. Someday, I won’t remember where I put the car keys OR the car. I won’t remember ever seeing this movie, because the govenment after reading this, will make sure I get an extra dose of floride in my water.
Despite the movie, we had a great box of buttered popcorn, a theater all to ourselves, and then came home and ducked taped the windows. (just kidding)
Really, if you can just enjoy a movie without thinking…it’s really…okay.
Good thing money is tight right now: According to this movie, it very well could have been me that walked into a casino in the Bahamas and then I would have ended up being the one to kill the world with a virus from a banana, dropped by a monkey who had had sex with a pig, into my margarita.
I’m just saying….
