Posted on 11/19/2007 3:37:30 AM PST by SkyPilot
A very insightful, and mighty smackdown, of Brian De Palma's propaganda movie "Redacted" by Michael Medved.
Listed to review here.
He calls the movie "The worst film I have ever seen."
Medved has been reviewing movies for over 25 years, and certainly knows his subject.
Brian De Palma really layed an egg with this one.
He couldn't even make an effective propaganda movie.
Like MedVed said, what are the chances that the man in charge of the Marines and raped a 14 year old was fat, and oh by the way his name was Rush.
Blatantly transparent. DePalma must think all US movie goers are dumber than a stump.
I hear Lions for Lambs finally crack 10 million at the box office. After what? 10 days?
I wonder when the hollywood glitzy left is going to get it? The only thing I can figure is right brain/left brain dissonance. They are ‘creative’ but their capacity to reason is very minimal.
$21000! That is awesomely bad.
Wow! We love these threads about this movie. Almost back to the Brokeback Mountain days. This movie must piss people off big time. I find it funny that only about 1 thousand people even saw this movie and it gives this kind of passion. In a way it is a way to get more people into the theater. Brokeback Mountain would have made about a dollar if not for the discussion about the movie. I hope it does not work for this movie. Although most here won’t go see it in the theater that is for sure.
In better news, Bella cracked 1 million dollars. Redacted had how many theaters???
a few minutes of simpering, adolescent fun for Cuban and DiPalma, then years of payback , 3 hours per day, five days per week for Rush. “Don’t pick a fight with someone who buys his ink by the barrel.”
Movies are made to promote an agenda. The “story line” is there to get us to continue watching, while the true propaganda is subtly poured into our heads full of mush.
Now now now, be fair.
He says it “COULD BE” the worst movie.
That's a terrific weekend--for a call-girl! Not so great for a movie.
This movie might be SO BAD that it won’t even be nominated for an Oscar.
I'd be interested to see how these movies fair in other countries.
This might as well have been a Direct-To-Al Jazeera release.
Wow...that is breathtakingly childish (the fat Rush thing, not your comment).
These movies may bomb badly in the USA, but they more than pay for themselves in the “overseas” markets. Expect Redacted, Rendition, Lions/Lambs et al to big big earners in certain EUropean countries and in third world countries in general, especially moslem ones.
Daniel Stewart Sherman as Specialist B.B. Rush in the film Redacted.
You know, I’ve seen some bad movies in my time, but I have yet to see one I’d burn the way Medved does this one.
