A Movie I'll Want To See and A Movie I Won't. (One movie is an attack on Red States)
Vanity ^ | 111010 | Artemis Webb

Posted on 11/10/2010 11:49:06 AM PST by Artemis Webb

I've always liked Director Peter Weir's films. Master and Commander, Witness, Gallipoli. Even things I didn't care for like The Year Of Living Dangerously and The Dead Poets Society were still well done and stylish. Now he has this coming out in January about an escape from a Soviet gulag in 1940 (be sure to click on the link to the trailer below):

Trailer here

----------------------------------------------------

Then there is this little number from Director Kevin Smith. I'll provide the synopsis from IMDB but I'll be damned if I'm going to provide a link to the trailer. From IMDB: "A horror film in which a group of misfits encounter fundamentalism gone to the extreme in Middle America."

“fear God” and a cross.

Someone should tell President Obama that this is offensive to Christians.

He called the State Department and others to pressure a pastor of a small church into not burning a koran.

Maybe the White House needs to knock horns with Hollyweird.

Oh, I know it won’t come from our antiChristian, pro-Islamist president. Just pointing out the double standard at play.

Kevin Smith is a hack extraordinaire. A New Jersey Yahoo with the gift of gab.

The Way Back is adapted from the book “The Long Walk” that is a great read, even if parts of it have been exposed as fiction.

Dogma was clearly the work of a believer. I was just referring to his talents.

“Fear God” is not necessarily an antireligous sentiment, as in the expression “A God fearing man”, basically meaning a pious or at least observant person. I don’t see any need to take offense.

We need to wait and see what it is about....that tiny bit of information is not enough to make an intelligent information. It might be a comedy....it could be satire. Kevin Smith normally does really good films that are funny so we should wait and see this develop. Of course it is over a year from now that it even premiers.

Ok I read it again. It sounds like another Children of the Corn. Those were pretty good movies (at least the first few).

Well now it probably would be...:) I saw it in high school and thought it was cool. I could not see it today even if I wanted to because of how dated it would be.

fatwa for the fat man.

Is Kevin Smith still complaining about being charged for 2 seats on a plane?

I’ll be ordering The Long Walk for Christmas and looking forward to The Way Back when it is released on DVD.

Thank you for posting.

Speaking of movies - Turner Classic Movies will debut Clint Eastwood’s film about Dave Brubeck on December 6, 2010. Mark your calendar. It’s Dave’s 90th birthday - One American Treasure paying tribute to another American Treasure. I can’t wait.

These states used to not be called “Red States”. I disregard the Commie sympathizing media which FLIPPED the color assignment launched a meme.

I fart in the direction of their “revolution”.

The Way Back trailer looks intriguing. I read the book - its veracity has been questioned in the past and it does read mostly like fiction. But the movie could be gripping, and at least somebody major is finally making a movie showing the reality of the Gulag, to some degree.

Vajda’s KATYN is a bracing look at some similar material.

Didn’t he claim to have seen the Russian version of a yeti in that book?

Kevin Smith has always been to what his hardcore-Gen X Grunge/losers and now modern “holier-than-thou” Hipsters call: “A Douche”!!

“The love of God is a dutiful act of man, by which he knowingly and willingly prefers, before all other things, the union of himself with God and obedience to the divine law, to which is subjoined a hatred of separation and of disobedience. III.

The fear of God is a dutiful act of man, by which he knowingly and willingly dreads before all things and avoids the displeasing of God, (which is placed in the transgression of his commands,) his wrath and reprehension and any [sinister] inauspicious estimation of him lest he be separated from God.

Trust in God is a dutiful act of man, by which he knowingly and willingly reposes on God alone, assuredly hoping for and expecting from him all things which are salutary or saving to himself; in which we also comprehend the removal of evils.

The honour of God is a dutiful act of man, by which he knowingly and willingly repays to God the reward due for his excellent virtues and Acts.

The primary object of all these acts, as they are prescribed by law and are man’s duty, is God himself”

DISPUTATION LXXII THE LOVE, FEAR, TRUST, AND honour WHICH ARE DUE FROM MAN TO GOD)
