Oh well, in 10 years people will be forgetting Ice Age and remembering We Were Soldiers. So I guess it's not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things.
This last Friday FallGuy and I saw Showtime too Hildy. It was very funny,but nothing to tell 10 people to see. A great one to rent though.
I want to know why "Our Lady of the Assassins" only grossed $158. And when is the sequel due out?
Probably because it was only in two theaters. Even then, it didn't seem to do too well. As for a sequel, don't hold your breath.
Awwwwwwwwwww ... If the sequel was as good as the original, maybe it could have broken $200. And made its way into THREE theaters!
...Because of the True Life Heroes whose Heroism I witnessed long, long ago the Kids of America are still Free to -Puts their money down- for things like .."ICE AGE".. instead of things like .."Son of the Communist Minfesto."
...I have been very "Impressed" to "Learn" how this BoX Office Service can "Project" the Revenue a Movie has taken in over the Weekend early Friday Evening thru its "Projections."
...And it's these very Friday Night Projection Figures that get reported on the Nation's TV News Shows come Sunday Morning ..before the Weekend is even over. AMAZING.
...Such a "Business"...?
What games are you talking about?
Yep- some of us can't get babysitters as easily as we can take the kids to see movies. We average about 75% kids movies at the theater. We can't see every "grown-up movie we'd like. We then wait to rent it, get it on pay per view, or buy it. I'm doomed to often be six months behind on any conversations of current film!
Speaking of the Discovery Channel, did you happen to catch the one hour special on the battle for Ia Drang on Friday night? It covered both LZ X-ray and LZ Albany. It had interviews from Hal Moore, Joe Galloway, Rick Rescorla and several others. Seeing as how Rescorla (sp?) was in the documentary, I'm assuming that it was made some time ago and was dusted off to coincide with the release of We Were Soldiers.
BTW Ronnie, what ever happened to Basil Plumley in real life? I haven't ever seen him interviewed like Moore or any of the others.
...Sgt/Major BASIL PLUMLEY stays pretty much to himself, including IA DRANG-1965 Alumni Reunions.
...Last November we had the man who portrays him in .."WE WERE SOLDIERS".. SAM ELLIOTT ..lovingly mingling with real Heroes and their Hero Families in D.C. with the Real Deal Hero at home.
...He and Mrs. PLUMLEY were at our Ft. Benning GA Special Screening for IA DRANG-1965 Vets dressed in Civies and dressed in Army Dress Blues at the Los Angeles Premiere in Westwood.
...The PLUMLEYS =
...Ordinary Americans/Extarordinary Heroes...
My Dad was much the same way. He never, ever, talked about the war with me or my mother.
HOwever, Ice Age is funny. A good comedy is always welcome, especially in hard times. Both will be remembered: do you forget Charlie Chaplin because you saw the original Ben Hur? Or do you forget Wizard of Oz because you saw Gone with the Wind?
.."September 11th" was "Quite Violent" also.
...Both were REAL -&- IMMEDIATE 2-Many =
...Changed LIVES forever.
...Hiding Heads in "ICE" won't change this Reality.
...Better to LIVE IT than REPEAT IT...?
When it releases on 3/29, go see it. It is a wonderful movie.
My husband and I viewed it first and then we took our 15 and 13 1/2 year old. We warned them about the scenes too but they did benefit from seeing the film. They saw heroes and the sacrifices paid by those heroes and their families on that screen. It opened a lot of discussion for our 15 year old. He had a lot of questions and public school wasn't going to provide the answers. Fortunately, my husband is a history major (particularly military history)and could discuss the subject.
We just sat there to the end of the credits. I couldn't move. I have difficulty finding words that are fitting. Words seem to ring hollow in my description of it but I thank all the veterans of all the wars Americans have fought (or are fighting) to protect our freedoms. Thank you!!!
Somewhat still a lurker....
