  • One More Reason to Detest Quentin Tarantino

    02/07/2016 5:21:47 PM PST · by PJ-Comix · 27 replies
    MoonBattery ^ | February 6, 2016
    That guitar he had destroyed for his movie The Hateful Eight was made in 1870. It was on loan from the Martin Guitar Museum. Tarantino left the clip in the movie because he liked the horrified reaction of Jennifer Jason Leigh, who realized at the time that it was not a replica but a priceless antique getting smashed. Everyone on the set was distraught except Tarantino, who reportedly smiled: The head of the museum was furious when he found out the guitar had been wrecked not in a random accident, but because Tarantino had failed to tell Kurt Russell about...

    Behold, my servant shall deal prudently, he shall be exalted and extolled, and be very high. As many were astonied at thee; his visage was so marred more than any man, and his form more than the sons of men: So shall he sprinkle many nations; the kings shall shut their mouths at him: for that which had not been told them shall they see; and that which they had not heard shall they consider.(Isaiah 52:13-15)Israel has been awaiting the coming of the Messiah.

    13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of BenghaziMy Review, Recommendation, and Request This is my review and recommendation of the movie, 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi. The movie has very course language and extreme violence. But it is true to life and not gratuitous. I normally would not see, let alone recommend an R Rated movie...but in this case every adult American should know what happened in Benghazi. These are our soldiers and fellow citizens, and these courageous soldiers on the ground, served us well. But the upper levels of government, particular in the State Department and the Executive...

    Holed up during the Blizzard of 2016, I was a grateful recipient of our DVD-collecting neighbor's brand new copy of the Matt Damon film "The Martian." Unlike Mr. Damon's stranded astronaut Mark Watney, I was marooned with family and good neighbors, and lacked for nothing. We didn't even lose power. "The Martian" is a fine video for people suffering from the lesser affliction of cabin fever. It's set in stark isolation. As the snow piled up past 30 inches with drifts resembling sand dunes amid strong winds, we identified in a small way with Watney's separation from the rest of...

  • 13 Hours: THIS is What Difference it Makes

    Combat Action. The true story from the perspective of the military contractors who rescued Americans in the terrorist attacks on the American embassy and CIA facility in Benghazi on 9/11 2012. Woah. Michael Bay, you are forgiven of Transformers. In fact, all Michael Bay haters will have to stand down and admit that this phenomenal action movie is a well-told and entertaining story of American valor. No vain empty action, this is rich and full heroism. I think Bay is probably the only one who could get this movie made because no one can accuse him of political agenda in...

    Anyone viewing "13 Hours: the Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" looking for the names "Hillary" or "Obama" will be disappointed. They aren't there. That said, this is the best Michael Bay movie since "Bad Boys II" and atones for at least two of the "Transformers" films. Most people know the basic story: on September 11, 2011, the American diplomatic compound in Benghazi, where Ambassador Christ Stevens had arrived, came under a planned attack by Islamic radicals. The attack had nothing to do with a video, as the film makes clear. Stevens only had two bodyguards with him, wanting to keep a...

    A spokesman for the CIA is criticizing the Michael Bay movie "13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi" as a "distortion of the events and people who served in Benghazi that night." The spokesman, Ryan Trapani, was quoted in an exclusive Washington Post story, which also features an interview with the CIA chief in Benghazi on Sept. 11, 2012, when Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed in a siege of the diplomatic compound and attack on the CIA annex. "No one will mistake this movie for a documentary," Tripani told the Post. "It's a distortion of the events...

    Saw The Revenant the other day with a good friend of mine. I can't say I've ever seen a movie that was filmed as beautifully as this one. The visuals and shots were simply amazing, and the style was very dream-like. In fact, the protagonist often had very vivid and bizarre dreams, but "reality" itself was also very odd and surreal in the way it was filmed. You sort of get the feeling that there is a spiritual undercurrent that you get a sense of in how the scenes were shot, and that is indeed a theme in the film's...

    We just saw The Big Short. It was an interesting and entertaining movie. The language was pretty coarse, but I've no doubt that's the way those high rollers converse. It was s serious subject, but there were many humorous exchanges. Most of the bad guys were hit pretty hard blame wise (banks, lenders, rating agencies), but there was no mention of the role of government policy over many years (Community Reinvestment Act and Fannie Mae/Freddie Mac) in leading to the subprime mortgage crisis. Surprisingly, Bush wasn't blamed! I did take issue with the observation at the end that minorities and...

    Left work a little early yesterday to see a 4:30 showing of The Revenant starring Leonardo DiCaprio. I ended up in the slowest ticket line, but eventually got my annual $20 refillable popcorn tub, a bottle of lemonade and walked briskly to the theater since by then it was 4:50. I thought for sure I had missed the beginning, which is one my few pet peeves. Nope, previews were still on. Is America the only country where movies never start on the time posted? Thank, God for it. It’s been awhile since I’ve been to a movie, longer still since...

    GEORGE Lucas may have been the brains behind Star Wars, but it was his ex-wife Marcia Lucas who gave the film its heart. Today, she has largely been erased from the history books. Marcia, who won the 1977 Academy Award for Film Editing along with Richard Chew and Paul Hirsch for her work on Star Wars, was instrumental in shaping the film's iconic moments that would propel it to the status of cultural phenomenon. In his 2008 book,The Secret History of Star Wars, journalist Michael Kaminski dedicates an entire chapter to Marcia Lucas, nee Griffin, who was once described by...

    The “Star Wars” universe was a fixture in Patten Anthony’s childhood: He read the books, played the video games and caught the original movie trilogy when it aired on TV. Now at 29 years old, he’s especially excited that this week’s release of Disney’s “Star Wars: The Force Awakens” prominently features Nigerian-British actor John Boyega, whose appearance in the movie's trailers suggests he’ll play a pivotal role in the story. “When I saw a black man with a light saber, I got a little hyped,” said Anthony, an African-American resident of Atlanta who works in information technology. “At first I...

    America is obsessed with Star Wars. I'm not making a value judgment, just a statement of fact. It's everywhere, even in car commercials on radio. What the movie franchise has to do with cars is a mystery, but it's probably working because why else would they do it? It certainly worked on me. I watched "The Force Awakens" Thursday at 11 p.m., Friday at 9:40 a.m. and Saturday at 7 a.m. Like I said, it's not a value judgment because I'd be judging myself. No value judgment is being made, but there are judgments to be made in regards to...

    Critics screened the film earlier this week, and with the reviews rolling in, we've compiled a roundup of what they're saying, and in an effort to be as spoiler-free as possible, we only included parts that don't specifically talk about the plot. "Reinvigorating the franchise with a welcome surge of energy, warmth and excitement after the misbegotten cycle of prequels released between 1999 and 2005, incoming writer-director J.J. Abrams seems to have had the original three films firmly in mind when he embarked on this monumental new undertaking, structured as a series of clever if sometimes wobbly callbacks to a...

    There were “smiling faces” from the crowds exiting the Los Angeles premiere of The Force Awakens on Monday night. Amongst these, presumably, were Disney executives ecstatic that the $4bn they paid George Lucas for franchise rights looks to have been a sound investment. Initial reactions from all three screening rooms where the film was shown for the first time – as well as from social media – suggest that JJ Abrams has the chops to please both critics and fans, and that The Force Awakens may well recoup at least half the $4bn by itself. A journalist for the Hollywood...

    Suzanne and I went to see The Peanuts Movie. (Yes, we like kids’ movies. They often contain metaphysics. I have long said that one of my very favorite metaphysical movies is the 1971 Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory.) I love Peanuts, so this movie appealed to me. The Peanuts Movie centers around Charlie Brown’s pursuit of The Little Red-Haired Girl, with a delightful subplot regarding Snoopy’s latest novel, in which he, as The World War One Flying Ace, is chasing a female canine flying ace named Fifi. Fifi gets shot down by the Red Baron and Snoopy, of course,...

    The spy/espionage sub-genre of movies is in no danger of petering out. This year alone brought us big films like The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation and Spectre, the latest James Bond adventure; not to mention news that another big spy franchise (Jason Bourne) will be continuing, as well. With so many spies out there playing cloak and dagger games across the silver screen, it’s not surprising that there could be some creative bleed-over between franchises. Mission: Impossible 5 and James Bond 24 were especially similar: both featured stories where the franchise hero had to uncover a...

After all, it was only a couple of months ago that the powers that be decided what the world really needed was a Muppets television show full of penis jokes and pessimistic cruelty. If the folks entrusted with Jim Henson’s creations were willing to submit Kermit and Fozzy to that kind of butchery, why should Charlie Brown and Snoopy be any safer? Well, let those trepidations slide away, because, to paraphrase Charles M. Schulz, happiness is a film about a warm puppy. The best way...

    A license to kill is also a license to not kill,” M lectures his new boss in the 24th James Bond film, “Spectre.” Well, it’s not a license to bore as much as this bloated drag manages to do. After a smashing opening sequence with a rooftop chase set against Day of the Dead observances in Mexico City, we’re plunged into a patchy plot (basically the same as the last “Mission: Impossible” outing) that’s little more than an excuse for random homages to the series’ illustrious past — reminding us how utterly mediocre this one is.

    Texas senator Ted Cruz said the Rebel Alliance in George Lucas's Star Wars films are "unequivocally" the good guys. The Republican presidential candidate told THE WEEKLY STANDARD Tuesday evening the question over which side in the original three movies, the Rebels and the all-powerful Galactic Empire, was good and bad, was "not even close." Cruz's stance goes against strong evidence that the Empire helped solve a crisis of security and order following the fall of the Old Republic sometime long ago in a galaxy far, far away. The Tea Party favorite also dismissed arguments that the Empire's destruction of Alderaan,...

    Action movie mogul Michael Bays latest bid for critical respectability may come at Hillary Clintons expense. Bay, who has been the brains behind blockbuster franchises including Transformers and Bad Boys has turned the tragic 2012 terrorist attack on the U.S. embassy in Benghazi into a big budget thriller. And if its first trailer is any indication, it wont depict the former secretary of states handling of the incident in a flattering light. 13 Hours: The Secret Soldiers of Benghazi which is based on a non-partisan, non-fiction book by Mitchell Zuckoff aims to be a ripped-from-the-headlines portrayal of the...
