Are you actually trying to claim that production studios don't make movies to earn a profit?
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.
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.
What are you even talking about now? When did this become "accepting a smaller profit?"
I said that production company's produce movies to make money. You said they don't.
That's an absolutely ridiculous claim.
'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.
If the movie "Noah" we're biblically accurate like you suggested, it would have been a really short movie, considering the fact that the "Noah " story is only about 3 pages long in the bible.

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.
This is the kind of fucking moron that shoots a person in a theater for texting. What a piece of garbage.

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.
That makes sense. We're Prime Members, and I couldn't imagine pressing a button and having Amazon send whatever brand they chose to send me. I like to comparison shop to spend less money, and it's not that hard to go to a computer that is already on for most of my waking hours anyway. The old people angle does make sense though. I know my mom (who I wouldn't really consider to be elderly) doesn't keep the computer on all of the time, and it would be much easier. Although she would just go to the grocery store to get it. My grandmother, before she died, would have found this very convenient, since she didn't drive for the last part of her life.

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.
You're right Tyson gives a great interview. His one man Broadway play is actually really good too. He tells some amazing stories from his childhood that are so outrageous that no one could make them up.
Raping and beating women is not nuanced.
Is the word 'nuanced' now some sort of pithy code word for in touch since Marie Harf used it trying to defend ISIS job applicants?
I t actually sounds effeminate when used wihin a comment about a former heavyweight boxer.
Sort of like "pithy" It sounds iffy, like one should be swilling tea in the Hamptons.

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.

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.
