    Im not sure they are going out of business. They may benefit greatly by the publicity.

    I said:

    ‘It’s their right, they can decide not to make a large profit.’

    I never said they don’t make any money, just far less profit. Never said they made no profit.

    oh, and the Charlton Heston Moses is STILL making money! As the Passion is still making money.

    These accurate portrayals of biblical stories are pure gold if made well.

    no, they will accept a lower profit, obviously they do this.

    Given the vast profit of the passion (30 million to make, 612 million earned) compared to Noah (125 million to make, 362 million earned) what other explanation is there to make.

    If Noah was an accurate portrayal of the biblical text, everyone knows it would make a whole lot more, they just don’t want to do it.

    Which is fine, I don’t really care. If they want to leave all that money on the table I am sure other people will gladly take it.

    BTW an accurate Noah has a lot of thematic elements that would make a great film, Noah was in many respects a very flawed person.

    ‘The vast, vast majority of movies are made to earn a profit.’

    This is just not true, look at ‘The Passion of the Christ’. This film made tons of money, if what you said were true, production companies would duplicate the same effort to be biblically accurate.

    Many don’t because this is art and they are not believers so they put their spin on a story they believe is made up anyway. They want their vision of God out there, not the biblical vision.

    It’s their right, they can decide not to make a large profit. On the other hand Mel Gibson has a right to be biblically accurate and to make a large profit. Everyone is happy.

    Im not saying this as an excuse but heart conditions coupled with Alzheimer’s can make older people very aggressive. I live in an area where there are a lot of older people, I have seen many rage out over minor issues. Nothing as bad as this.

    Kidding aside, this is actually a good use of technology, I order stuff all the time on amazon prime, and it is a very good service.

    I especially see a niche for older people who want to push one button for a cab or to reorder insulin from the pharmacy. A lot of older people don’t want to get on a computer to order something online but their kids could set them up.

    This is pretty exciting, I’m waiting for the Johnny Walker bottle to self order when theres only one shot left.

    The trouble is, you can’t shame a buffoon. Cuomo has skated on his family name for so long he has no self awareness how foolish he is.

    Adam Carolla had a good interview with him (I think its a free podcast). Tyson is a interesting guy, not a perfect guy but a lot more nuanced than people give him credit for.

    He’s off of drugs (except weed which he doesn’t consider a drug, go figure) and he has a very admirable work ethic.

    Worth a listen.

    Dominic Toretto would simply launch the truck from one expressway to another.

    3 more days to Furious 7!!!!

    I agree, who cares but my twitter feed is on fire with this.

    It’s the latest outrageous outrage for us to pretend to care about.

    Cavallo you are correct, but it will make no difference to libsol, he is so ignorant of the facts while at the same time believing himself to be brilliant he is beyond reason.

    I used to think he was a troll but now I really do think he believes what he says he believes, but what can you expect from someone with the ridiculous avatar LibertarianSocialist? Im sure he thinks the name is a masterpiece but the fact that it displays such colossal ignorance even before you read one of his posts is completely lost on him.

  • [12] March 30, 2015 at 3:19pm

    this is diabolical, when the violent protests start, as the play is discussed, uncomfortable truths that were hidden will bubble up to the surface, people who were ignorant before of the facts will now be faced with them.

    LibSol, if ignorance is bliss you must be the happiest person on earth

    Her eyes make her look like a Stepford wife. Probably more believable that someone replaced the living Ashack with an android than her Twitter was hacked.

    Ashack, Ashack, I am sure she was never bullied in school with a name like that!

    But he was right!, I don’t understand! He was supposed to lauded as the more superior human he obviously is.

    I am guessing he is very picky about where he works, otherwise he would be working at chick-fil-a
