  • ’2016: Obama’s America’ Movie Is Disturbingly Necessary

    CBS Los Angeles ^ | 8/17/2012 | Scott Paulson
    This past week, “2016: The Movie” about President Barack Obama opened in the Chicago area, and I chose to get more of an education about Obama by seeing the movie. After the inundation of canned hype for the movie on conservative talk shows across the Chicago radio dial that sounded more like commercials than honest endorsements of the movie, I was skeptical of what I was going to see. While some talk show hosts sounded like they were genuinely impressed with the documentary and honestly endorsing the film, there were those who were obviously reading a commercial script which was...

    By Mr. Curmudgeon:It's unusual for political documentaries to become box-office hits, but that seems to be the case for the film "2016: Obama's America." Dinesh D'Souza, who is also the film's narrator, wrote the book from which the Rocky Mountain Pictures' offering gets its name.According to Deadline Hollywood, Friday's box-office rating put Sylvester Stallone's "Expendables 2" at number one, "The Bourne Legacy" in second place and "2016" in third. "That's stunning," said the entertainment website, "because it's playing in 1/3 less theaters across North America than the other wide-release actioners."The film explores President Obama's early years; in particular, the people...
  • Anti-Obama Movie Stuns Hollywood For #4 ("2016" makes some real dough-truncated title)

    But the shocker was Rocky Mountain Pictures’ political documentary 2016 Obama’s America which expanded into theaters across America this weekend after a very limited release and wound up in 4th place. That’s stunning because it’s playing in 2/3 fewer theaters across North American than the other wide release actioners. (See below for more details). Due to its hot pre-sales, the pic is proving frontloaded, and its ranking will fall steeply by end of Sunday. But the doc made its point: its new cume after this weekend should make it the #1 conservative documentary (besting Expelled: No Intelligence Allowed’s $7.7M). The...

    The anti-Obama documentary based on Dinesh D’Souza’s book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage” expanded nationwide on Friday — with early first-place showings in the domestic box office rankings, Deadline Hollywood reports. As of late Friday afternoon, “2016: Obama's America” had grossed $700,000 from 1,090 theaters. That compared with $300,000 for the new big-budget, Sylvester Stallone action flick “The Expendables 2,” which is playing in 3,355 theaters, Deadline Hollywood reports.

    ... I got out of work at lunch today and I thought I would just pop into the movie theater and watch the movie. The movie was at 12:20. I thought getting there right at noon would not matter. No one is going to be at some political film in the middle of the day. I was wrong. So wrong that I ended up sitting in one of the handicapped seats because the movie was already full when I arrived. I go to the movies almost every Friday after work. I have never been in a packed theater at noon....

    Yesterday afternoon I finally found the time to head to a theatre to see 2016 – Obama’s America, a movie based on Dinesh D’Sousa’s book “The Roots of Obama’s Rage.” In the book D’Sousa tried to determine just what was driving Dear Ruler’s rage (dare we say hatred?) against successful wealthy Nations and Americans?

    Went to see 2016 with my son inlaw today. At the conclusion of the movie the audience applauded, but not because it was a heartwarming ending or the good guys won kind of ending, but because someone has dared to tell the truth. It was more like, "finally, someone on our side is daring to tell this story". It is frightening to see just how imminent the effects of Obama's actions are, and that they are all so calculated. I used to get so mad at Romney when he would shovel the pablum, "Obama's a nice guy, he's just over...

  • Boycott Theater Complexes Showing "The Campaign"

    Town Hall ^ | August 07, 2012 | reasonmclucus
    People should protest the showing of the movie "The Campaign" by staying away from the theater complexes that show it. Promos indicate the movie contains a totally unacceptable scene in which a man apparently hits a baby. In the scene one man is shown starting to punch another man. The second man ducks resulting in the first man apparently hitting a baby in the face. The movie is being promoted as a comedy but there is no way an adult hitting a baby can be considered funny by any normal person. The movie doesn't show the punch actually hitting the...
  • Not what you'd expect from Woody Allen

    08/07/2012 8:16:43 AM PDT · by pjd · 42 replies
    The latest Woody Allen movie is so much not what you would expect from Woody Allen, I have to post this little commentary. I don't know if he suddenly had an epiphany or something, but I was totally blown away. Heavy spoilers follow... Ok, early on he starts criticizing his daughter's new Italian boyfriend whom he refers to as a Communist because he is a pro-bono lawyer, union supporter, etc. Woody's movie-wife says that he used to be like that. He says, "Yeah, when I was younger, but I was never a Communist. I don't even like to share a...

    "This film is controversial, and that's exactly the reason we want to ensure it can find its audience prior to the November elections.” -- Mark Cuban, co-studio head of Magnolia Pictures Mark Cuban is a man who, in February of this year, attended a $30,000 a plate Obama fundraiser. Reportedly, as President Obama entered the event, he and Cuban "embraced warmly." Magnolia Pictures is a specialty releasing company (its "edgier" label is Magnet), that is known mainly for its backing of left-wing films, which include, "Casino Jack and the United States of Money," "Enron: The Smartest Guy in the Room,"...

  • The 10 worst movie remakes of all time (Who ordered the Total Rehash?)

    The Orange County Register ^ | August 2, 2012 | Barry Koltnow
    With the opening Friday of "Total Recall," thoughts immediately turn to the subject of movie remakes... Remakes are nothing new in Hollywood, although movie studios prefer to call them "reboots" or "re-imaginations." For some reason, the word "remake" has a negative connotation among moviegoers. Perhaps it's because it seems like a lazy and unimaginative way to make movies...

    Big Hollywood ^ | July 28, 2012 | John Nolte
    In the wake of the awful massacre in Aurora, Colorado, we're reading al lot of criticism directed at Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight," the second feature in the director's trilogy and the one with the memorable "Joker" character that apparently inspired the alleged movie theatre shooter. The problem with much of this criticism, however, is that it portrays the movie as the exact opposite of what it really is. [...] If I had to choose the most inexpressibly moving and inspiring moment of humanity of any film released over the least five years, it would be the sequence in "The...
  • Why Batman's "The Dark Knight Rises" Is An Instant Conservative Classic

    Townhall ^ | 07/27/2012 | Jerry Boyer
    The third film in the Batman series is a direct polemical assault on the French Revolution and its political heirs, which includes Occupy Wall Street and perhaps Barack Obama. I would say that it is the exact opposite of so many revolutionary-wannabe films from Fight Club to V for Vendetta (which has provided the tell-tale Guy Fawkes masks to the Occupy movement), except that in order to be opposite, they must in some sense be comparable and DKR is far superior to the others artistically, commercially and philosophically. The crazed theater shooter, if he turns out to be as much...
  • "Magic Mike" and "50 Shades of Perversion": Is this "Entertainment" appropriate for Christians?

    Consequential Commentary ^ | 7-26-2012 | Mary C. Kirchhoff
    Too many of us so called “Christians” today buy into the perversion that is prevalent in entertainment, simply because it’s there, it’s being promoted and we read or hear good reviews. The popularity of such genre does not make it acceptable for us, as Christians, to take part in it. If anything, we should be speaking out against it.

    Breitbart ^ | 7/24/12 | Ben Shapiro
    In perhaps the least self-aware review of the politics of "The Dark Knight Rises" yet, Steven Zeitchik of the Los Angeles Times is befuddled at the idea that left-wing thought could ever be portrayed negatively. First, he admits his own incompetence: [M]ore politics doesn't mean your movie's message is more consistent or decipherable. Or perhaps the politics of "The Dark Knight Rises" is perfectly consistent and decipherable … and Zeitchik just doesn’t get it. In the next few lines, he shows that he has no clue what he’s talking about: Contradictions abound in "The Dark Knight Rises."
