The Undefeated

Amazon Best Sellers Rank: #136 in Movies & TV


TOPICS: Business/Economy; Constitution/Conservatism; Culture/Society; Foreign Affairs; Government; Miscellaneous; News/Current Events; Politics/Elections
KEYWORDS: amazon; amazontheundefeated; cain; movie; obama; palin; perry; romney; sarahpalinundefeated; theundefeated; theundefeateddvd; walmartundefeatued
In case no one noticed. I checked on Amazon at about 9:00am and "The Undefeated" was #245 in "Movies/TV". Less than 17hrs later it is at #136. Is that good? Looks like good movement to me.

Wonderful, but what is “The Undefeated”? And why should I buy it?

Is that good?

Not really. Glenn Beck mentions obscure stuff at #5000 on the list and by the end of the day it is #1 or 2. A quick glance at the stuff that is beating her in the top 100 is The Housewives of New Jersey, Bridesmaids and children's movies.

Buy it because you are tired of watching Pawn Stars. I purchased two copies at Wally World today, there were about ten left. Not sure what an initial quantity would be but there seemed to be two rows, both probably started full, I emptied the top one. I suspect it selling well, but GIGO.

Actually the DVD is rated #3 in the Documentary section on Amazon. Great for 1st day. Go Sarah!

Where’s Romney’s movie? Let’s compare apples to apples. Suppose someone did a movie about Santorum... I’m thinking that it would sell exactly the number of copies as he has close relatives. Let’s speculate about a Reagan film, BEFORE he was elected... I’m thinking epic fail. Your Beck analysis is also flawed. Beck might be able to marshall sales for a day, or a week, but I’m sure that sales drop off dramatically very quickly.

Sorry, I missed the memo. I’m not up on the latest Sara book. Now, number one on my “next purchase” list. I bought her first book as soon as it came out.

I think Wal-mart is where she will rule. When I checked out with my two copies today the clerk asked me if I liked her. Of course I said yes, but the interesting thing to me was that she noticed, or cared. At some point people will be driven to watch the film out of curiosity, and then the narrative will change. Another interesting aside: The clerk was Hispanic, and she was obviously unsure about her English so I thought it was strange that she would ask about my exotic DVD selection.

But see, Palin is not like any other generic Politicians. She transcends all that. There are massive amounts of supporters waiting on the sidelines for when she jumps in. If Palin has all the hidden support that I have been hearing about here, these disks should be flying off the shelf.

Let’s speculate about a Reagan film, BEFORE he was elected... I’m thinking epic fail.

Reagan movies before he was elected POTUS didn't do bad at all. Even the made for TV one.

Apples to oranges, and you know it so it’s tedious to respond. I was speaking about a Reagan biopic, similar to Palin’s. No such was ever done, for good reason. Once again I must point out that every campaign comes to Palin’s threads to vent. It’s the only game in Freerepublic town. I’d be embarrassed to comment on a Romney thread if my only point in being there was to naysay.

Are you serious? There are no such threads on FR, unless they are to bash Mittens (I enjoy jumping in on those). Try rolling into Perry, Cain or Bachmann threads. Plenty of venom towards them and they are actual candidates. Why is it a slam on Palin to point out that her Amazon sales for the movie are not stellar? That is what we are discussing here.

I wouldn’t know, I’ve never been on one. Romney will never get a dime or a vote from me. I’ll go to the Libertarian Party again before I vote for that slimeball.

I only commented on your attempt to compare a Hollywood major motion picture with a biopic. The two simply cannot be compared in a realistic way. GREAT biopics have bombed RECENTLY. Palin’s will do very well, but if you mention Titanic you have jumped the shark.

I know what you meant on Reagan. I just thought of his last movie he made when I read your line. Thought I would slip it in because it was a funny retort to your question.

Look for the "special edition" of this DVD -- only available at WalMart.
For an extra $2, you also get the entire AUDIOBOOK of "Going Rogue" -- to listen to in you car!

From a comment posted by C4P's speppers69:
I talked to Victory Films about this directly and they told me that Wal-Mart has 2 versions....
the standard version that is also available at Amazon, etc.

Then there is the Exclusive version only available through Wal-Mart and that is the one
that has the additional footage like Sarah's championship basketball game and the speech in Wisconsin...
...AND it has the audio book of Going Rogue on CD/MP3.

The Exclusive version is the same version that we got from SarahPAC...
...but the SarahPAC version does not have the audio book.

$15.00 at my local WalMart with the audio book of Going Rouge. I watched my SarahPAC delivered DVD last night and thought it was very good. Even for those who think they don’t like her, you will find out lots of new stuff that will surprise you.

I bought a copy last evening at Wal-Mart. There were two types for sale - a single dvd case and two dvd cases. I bought the single because I already own everything she has sold. But my single copy did have the basketball footage as a bonus feature. The two-case package had the cd audiobook in it.

I thought it was a good docu. I did not feel at all that the last 10 minutes are overly harsh nor does it imply that any GOP are corrupt, as has been said repeatedly here by one poster. It (Andrew Brietbart) claims that GOP men are eunichs for not standing up for Sarah.

It is and will be the only dvd I will purchase this year.

You are right. I should have given context for those who are not palinistas. BTW... absolutely love your tag line!

Bought it yesterday the two slots at Walmart were half full when I went in the morning. I watched it in the afternoon with popcorn and all. Loved it and know why the right and the left hate her. She will actually do what she says she will do. How refreshing that would be?

Sorry I am clueless about Walmart stats and probably other things that I might refuse to admit or know about.

Everything said by Levin, Bruce and Breitbart were 100% correct, esp. about the GOP. I know the freeper you’re talking about and she is dead wrong, mainly because she doesn’t want to hear the truth.

I bet whatever landed on the cutting room floor was even better.
