These directors and their actors should have kept their mouths out of politics. They offended too many people with their far left propaganda and support of BHO. Do they really think people are stupid enough to let them bash their values, call them horrific names, then expect them to pay to see the crap they spew out? I for one have not been to the theater for more than 7 years and I have no intention of going again or even renting one of these far left idiot's dvd's. I am pretty certain a great number of people are doing the same as I. Let the implosion begin! It couldn't happen to a nicer crowd!
Yes, they did. Going to a movie can be like going to secular, socialist church and then getting fleeced for the expensive popcorn. Some of the things that parade as facts are not really facts but socialist fables. As long as people are convinced that the way to Utopia is fixing the system, they do not have to be aware of the need to fix themselves.
I used to go to the movies at least once a week. I can count how many movies I've seen in the theater since 2008 on one hand. One could say I've voted with my wallet, and I don't seem to be alone in this. Hopefully, "Hollywood" won't be considered "To big to fail".
"Truth to a Liberal is as Salt to a Slug"
IF Lucas and Speilberg made entertaining films and that were successful, they wouldn't be bemoaning their failures, and making stupid prognostications that have NOTHING to do with Reality.
This WHINE SESSION, is the definition of being a BAD SPORT, and realizing your past successes are holding you back.
RUSSIA, ENGLAND, CANADA AND AUSTRALIA MAKE FILMS AMERICANS WANT TO PAY MONEY TO SEE.
Only Obama watches their films. Every file of Lincoln has been a success thought history and he is popular overseas. Hollywood distorts Lincoln and superimpose Obama's image onto Lincoln image and they wounder why no one wants to see it. The Russians make better movies about Lincoln.
so true. I wont go see a movie that is a leftist propoganda movie or has any liberal turds like Matt Damon in it to name one. That does not leave many movies to watch! lol I thought Lincoln was a fabricated piece of trash for the most part.
"You’re talking about Steven Spielberg and George Lucas can’t get their movie into a theater.”
Maybe it's because they think their $h!t don't stink? After the crapstatic sensation of Star Wars Episodes I II & Revenge of the ruining my childhood you @ss, not to mention Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of What the He!! were you thinking?! It is no wonder they're a little more skeptical about what they spend money on for the big screen.
When was the last time anyone made a movie you actually wanted to see?? There hasn't been anything worth paying to see for YEARS! it's all crap!
More of the "dumbing down" of America.
How true that is, Hollywood has turned into a propaganda machine where entertainment has been replaced with propaganda on every front. It's all about gays, interracial affairs, and communists. Not much there worth watching anymore.
Here's the problem Hollywood Kids...all you do is remake everything from our childhood. 50's, 60s 70s and some 80s stuff and you don't even do it as well. Why don't you find some creative projects that somebody with at least one creative bone in their body instead of regurgitating what has gone before with your special spin. No thanks. You know they're stretching when Dark Shadows, which I loved as a kid, is now a feature length film. How many sequels, prequels, etc can I stand? There are many good books out there, to adapt movies to? Then what I noticed was when they made the movie, World Without End, they put in all sort of different gratuitous sex that wasn't even in the books turning almost all the characters trashy. That book was great, the miniseries wasn't. They can't make anything anyway now.... it has to appeal to the lowest common denominator which now is reaaally low. Game of Thrones is pretty spot on to the books and of course has a huge following what with an actual number of intelligent plots going on at any given time.
Today's culture is largely defined by the media. The culture sucks and is shallow and stupid, just like the television, movies and music it produces. MOST people don't go for it. Hollywood/pop culture deserves to fail and go broke.
My WHOLE FAMILY has only seen one movie in the last 6+ years.... 2016! ALL OF HOLLYWOOD just stinks. After walking out of movie after movie, I just decided enough is enough.
@DogsLoveFreedom- Totally agree with you on this one here. In the past 5-6 years, it has been nothing but remakes (oops...don't want to offend the Hollywood types, it called "reimagining") of classic/cult classic films and tv shows (I'll add a few more titles: True Grit, 21 Jumpstreet, Red Dawn, GI Joe etc.) Hell, the new Star Trek film cribbed heavily from Nick Meyer's Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan to the point of the same lines being used. And, even now, they have remade Robocop and Total Recall to be released soon. So to Mr. Lucas and Mr. Spielberg: B-O-O H-O-O; if Hollywood would still try to produce original stuff, instead of remaking flicks and rebranding them under different names, then you would not be crying about this now.
The same people here talking about this delema they have in hollywood, are the same who only sit on the couch and do nothing else but watch them!!!. So much for danny glover, jim carry, matt damon, jamie foxx, chris rock, bruce springstien, don hennley, susan serandon, TOM HANKS, etc,etc,etc,etc,etc,etc, and to many to name or is that out of your comfort zone???
Spot on. To your exact point, can you guess George Lucas’s favorite movie? Hint: It won his company, ILM, an Oscar for Best Visual Effects. You’ve got ten seconds.
…7…8…9…10. Time’s up.
If you said “Who Framed Roger Rabbit” you’re a film trivia genius.
(Good story behind this, but waaay off topic.)
True. My husband and I used to buy DVD's of the movies. Aside from not going to the movies, we're not buying their crappy DVD's. The only way these morons learn anything is if you hit them in their wallets.

I don’t know do you think you might be missing something, maybe like an article?

This is not going to go away. They can try to block it, mock it, not cover it, whatever, but it’s not going to go away.

The entire education system needs a re-haul. Students have to sit hour after hour listening to lectures that bore them to death and make them hate school. These kids have been raised in a high tech world and this teaching style doesn’t work anymore. Auditory learning only works for a percentage of students anyway (I was told by a teacher once that it was especially hard for young boys to sit still and pay attention). I don’t know why in a day and age where the youth can manipulate all types of gadgets and games that most adults can’t that there isn’t a better way to teach them. I think more project based learning would engage the students better.
Apparently they're not listening to lectures. Apparently they're working on prefabricated packets simply handed out by the teacher, who is not really so much a teacher as a PDF (Packet Distribution Facilitator).
Gadgets and games have been tried, from teaching machines in the 1960s to individual laptops and so-called interactive teaching devices today. None of them has lived up to the hype. Kids today spend enough time hunched over screens and pointing and clicking and thumb-mashing anyway.
The ability to deliver a series of lectures, forcefully, coherently and if possible entertainingly, should be the first prerequisite for any teaching job from middle school all the way up to college.

Please note that the Puerto Rican flag in front of the house is showing up more and more on news sites as an American flag (do an image search of the house). This story is sick and sad enough not to think that some PC police is photoshopping the image.

In my state you can not carry a loaded weapon. Gun and ammunition have to be carried separately. Liberal logic.

I hardly know anyone here that isn’t from some other state or country. California was ruined by others, too. Let’s say that all political refugees (conservatives) can seek asylum in any red state.

How about the United Nations of America? I don’t seriously think the states are going to secede but what’s wrong with protesting? This article makes me think the gestapo is going to break down my door any moment. No disrespect to Glenn Beck but when the spontaneous protests began at town-halls and the tea party movement began he begged people not to get violent. I don’t think people want to be violent they just want to be heard. The republicans and news outlets are not speaking for the people, and it’s frustrating to be told constantly how to act or not to act. There will be either action or no action and either way there will be consequences.

A little California producer of anti-Muslim film treatment?
Why not let people “act” on their principals. It’s so much better than taking it.

To MOMRULES :With everyone else throwing fits and wanting something done about the obvious fraud used to elect Obama I have just one question I would like answered………..Where the hell is Romney and why isn’t HE demanding action and a recount?
Romney, like most moderate republicans, are cowering, compromising, flailing and failing and they are taking the rest of us with them. The democrat party makes me sick but so does the republican.
