That's why "The Alamo" bombed too. Hollywood didn't treat the Alamo with respect.
ROFL...what utter rot.
Saw the Alamo today. Thought it was fine. And respectful.
The weird Alamo-bashing campaign on FR by people who largely didn't even see the movie is one of the lamer things I've seen around here. Typical was grand-idiot Joseph Farah's article urging a boycott though he admitted he didn't see it. Of course it all started with an e-mail campaign that basically lied about events in the movie.
The movie bombed because of the lack of a major star, and the fact that most Americans have no idea what happened at the Alamo; certainly isn't covered in schools anymore outside of Texas.
"Gods and Generals" was a massive box-office flop, and FR loved that movie. "Master and Commander" was a box office disappointment, even with a major star. Seems historical war movies may be going out of style.
Now if they had just called it Thw Passion of the Alamo .....
