    Well, that was disgusting.

    A movie about someone who appears to be the Unaknifer, that is supposedly being sold as an anthem of disgust with our current politics?

    No, thanks.

    ohhh I want in on this!

    Is Snapped Shot’s “Israeli Nuke Strike Betting Pool” About To End?

    In June, DMartyr @ Snapped Shot opened up a Israeli Nuke Strike Betting Pool .

    Aug 21 is the target date, via Gerald

    Bushehr reactor…once the rods are in, Israel can no longer attack reactor because of spreading radiation. Aug. 21 activation date: Ruskies.

    6 days to Israel hit on Bushehr, is Russia blowing smoke?

    The Bartender noted:
    this would be 3 days after Prez O arrives at Martha’s Vineyard on the 19th.
    Russians blowing smoke?

    HEY ADMINS!
    this blog needs to get in on some of that sweet action
    other blogs are offering cool prizes, why can’t we?


  7. 7 | August 15, 2010 7:46 pm

    @ rain of lead:

    Israel won’t hit Bushehr. In and of itself, Bushehr doesn’t matter. What matters are the centrifuges that are enriching uranium for making a bomb. That is what we all should be concerned by, and only the USA has the capability to take them out. Obama won’t raise a hand against fellow Mohammedans, so that isn’t happening. An ill wind is blowing, and Obama is siding with the Muzz, just as he promised.

    Probably wise, but my impression was extremely unfavorable. Hollywood has been selling us “the evil banks and politicians” for decades now, and selling us all manner of serial killers—disgusting serial killers, serial killers With A Cause, serial killers With An Excuse, yadda yadda and f*cking yadda—for nearly as long.

    Thus, from what I have seen of the clip above, there is nothing—not a thing—”anti-Hollywood” about this offering. To the contrary, it is the same old stupid, simplistic, one-dimensionally-violent Hollywood trash, being sold (as it always is) as some sort of Deeply Significant Statement.

    Pfui.

    If Israel hits Iran, I don’t think the nuclear facilities will be the targets.

    The facilities wouldn’t matter if not for the Mullahs and Iran’s Republican Guard. If the nuclear facilities were taken out while the Mullahs and Iran’s Republican Guard remain in control -- the danger to Israel wouldn’t be removed.

    Iran is already attacking Israel through all its proxies which would still be dangers to Israel if the Mullahs and Iran’s Republican Guard were still standing after an attack on Iran.

    Israel has to go for the head of the snake, IMO.

    Once this is done, the nuclear facilities can come down over time.

    Bushehr is critical as it provides an additional path to nuclear weapons and can’t be destroyed from the air once it goes hot.

    @ snork:

    Frank Capra was perfectly clear-eyed about the power-hunger and venality of (some) politicians and businessmen. So, in his own way, was Preston Sturges, who also addressed the hypocrisies and and conformities of ordinary people. Neither of them needed to resort to serial killers to get their ideas across; neither of them were so debased and so lacking in faith in their fellow-citizens, nor so impoverished of imagination, that they had to use sluttishness, vulgarity, and murder as the means for communicating their outrage at the shortcomings of America—and they managed to communicate, at the same time, some element of love for America and Americans, notwithstanding the flaws they saw and savaged.

    American pride without blood or killing:

    These films were made, admittedly, in an earlier America, and some things have certainly changed. But I believe that the posters here are intelligent enough to see the many parallel behaviors between the Americans of an earlier day and our America today.

    Frank Capra:

    American Madness
    Meet John Doe
    Mr. Smith Goes to Washington
    State of the Union
    (this, especially, should be seen)

    Preston Sturges:

    The Great McGinty (one of the best, and funniest, films about political corruption)
    Sullivan’s Travels (a great poke at Hollywood, and a must-see for anyone who enjoyed “O Brother Where Art Thou?”, which took its title from this film)
    Hail the Conquering Hero
    The Miracle of Morgan’s Creek
    Christmas in July

    The other must-see film that people should look at, for a view at how silly the concept of “an objective press” is, is the original film of The Front Page, starring Pat O’Brien and Adolphe Menjou. Forget the star-vehicle version His Girl Friday, with Cary Grant.

    The Front Page is one of the funniest, most corrosive films ever.

    @ F:

    No idea.

    The Front Page, by former newsman (and later, Irgun supporter) Ben Hecht, was a very, very successful play—and as such, brought to the screen in the early sound era. Its view of news reporters as willing whores, of politicians as cynical exploiters, etc., is unequalled. There are a hundred and more brilliant little digs, double-entendres, hypocrisies, lies, vicious comparisons. One needs to be familiar with the idiom of the time, and be sensitive to Prohibition jokes, to get the full flavor of the film—but it is a joy to watch.

    One of the things that almost passes unnoticed today is the realization that “Diamond Louie,” one of the henchmen of the Morning Post in the film, is clearly a gangster—one of the “circulation sluggers” routinely employed by newspapers at that time to beat up newsstand sellers who didn’t give “proper” placement to their newspapers.

    Coincidentally the director of “The Front Page (1931)”, Lewis Milestone, also directed “All Quiet on the Western Front” the previous year.

    Milestone was a very popular director back then—and “All Quiet” was a big hit at the time.

    Very good movie in its way—wildly antiwar, of course, but the more you read about the horrors of WWI, as far as the stupidities of the generals and the overall carnage, the more you can understand the pacifist sentiment of the time, and even (alas) the appeasement sentiment which permitted Hitler to consolidate his power.

    Well, the “real-life Charles Foster Kane,” of course, was William Randolph Hearst—who was pilloried by the Left the way Murdoch and Fox News are pilloried today.

    Some day, I hope to be able to look into Hearst’s positions in his later career and truly evaluate whether Hearst was anything like the monster that the Left made him out to be.

    I suspect that “All Quiet”, like “Wings” back in the silent era, used actual WWI footage for many of their action scenes.

    Hearst was a deeply flawed man with a lot of money and a lot of power due to his newspaper empire.

    We now know how maligned Senator Eugene McCarthy was by the Left, with the little I have been able to dig up about Hearst he has been maligned similarly.

    Waters further asserted that racial injustice was rampant in America. She claimed that the L.A. tumult could rightly be called a “rebellion” or “insurrection,” but not a riot. “Riot implies to me wild, crazed, uncalled-for actions,” she explained, “and I’m not so sure that’s quite appropriate for what took place in Los Angeles.”[3] It was “unfortunate,” she said, “that “it takes things like this rebellion to wake people up.”[4]

    Look at this sentence which you quoted:

    Businesses have now added jobs in every month so far this year, a total of 630,000 positions. But that works out to an anemic 90,000 a month.

    OK what was it like before? Care to look at the numbers?

    Thanks M and others! Our intention is not to shock through visuals- we do not want to be like the horror filmmakers of today. We merely want to create great stories which support alternative beliefs and true conservatism (which I do grant, is relative) which makes the viewer think long after seeing it.
    @ m:

    Before you go, the best anti-big brother movie I ever saw was Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil.” On the surface it was humor and satire… underneath it was very dark.

    Very scary and very enlightening.

    @ SGF:
    I think it’s great that you guys are interested in doing anti-Hollyweird, pro-Constitution films. Do them.
    There is a huge market for pro-Americanism now. People in this country are thirsty for films that portray the values and traditions we hold dear. You can get rich and do the right thing. It’s a win-win opportunity.
    Just take a look at all the failed garbage produced that tries to make this country out to be the bad guy, the cause of all the problems in the world, and dumb as hell. LOL, that shite is going nowhere fast. And forget the anti-war movies where we are always are the perps and the muzz always the pillars of knowledge and sensitivity. Celebrate our holidays. Do a nice Christmas movie that shows what giving kind people we are.
    Don’t try to be cutting edge and put down everything we hold sacred. In other words do the opposite of what the scrunts in Hollyweird are doing. Take over that place and make them obsolete. The time is now. America is waiting to go back to the movie theaters, buy some popcorn and actually enjoy a show.

    @ SGF:
    Also… Back to Terry Gilliam. Y’all ought to contact him. He was snubbed by Universal who pressured him to change the script and edit the movie. Gilliam refused, and Universal pulled it’s advertising support. Gilliam went ahead and released it anyway, without support.

    I suggest you contact Gilliam who understands the game to give you a leg up. I bet he’s accessible.

    Thanks Bunk X! I love the films of the 80s, they feel so nostalgic for me (which is weird because I was born in 87), but I definitely will check that out ASAP, I just put it at the top of my Netflix and will definitely try and get in touch with Mr. Gilliam- I had previously tried to contact Roger L. Simon who was in a similar situation I believe, but he did not yet respond. Thanks!@ Bunk X:

    Thanks for your support Chickadee! We are not doing this for wealth- we are doing this because we are volunteering our time and talents as we perceive them to promoting positive change. However, money definitely helps in getting distribution, and to fund our oeuvre. I would love to be able to produce and support independent art in the future and see a breakdown of the Hollywood mainstream system, and it will take money to do that which we are prepared to work for.

    And you are correct- the time is now to put this content out there. We need people to wake up, right now.

    @ SGF:
    Perhaps I was abit over wrought drawing your work along side of a B minus slasher T and A movie

    I may have to give it a go then, but for me the atmosphere is too much like what I remember of the Carter years, not comfortable for me, times I’d rather not look back on as I was a helpless child at the time, so you probably suceeded in your art.

    If turns a few heads to look inside of theirselves and ask questions of their realty and come out of their skins to become politically active, good enough.

    Hey, I’ll shoot a link of the podcast to Roger and ask him to give it a listen (not that we have pull, but he does know us ~:)!

    I think listening to your reasoning really puts things into context.

    Damnit! I missed the radio show. Election day in Oz is just 5 days away and it’s still too close to call.

    Here in NZ we just lost another Minister. The Associate Defence Minister and Minister of Veterans Affairs. Seems she had a few too many affairs of another sort. Her lover was also caught sexually molesting several junior Defence Department employees. The Minister also was caught ‘in flegratto’ with a laptop full of classified documents way above her pay grade and not even remotely related to her portfolio. What is it with politicians in general? They seem to lose all sense of proportion and common sense. I guess overheated ego, power fetish and lust conquers all! LOL :)

    re: #4 Dark_Falcon

    Good post, Ludwig. I should note that even Stalker blog members snork and buzzsawmonkey found that ‘movie’ offensive. Mr. Mullen is just right-wing snuff-porn. But the person who wrote it needs to have an FBI file opened about him. Because someone who thinks like that is a likely serial killer.

    Yes, but the majority liked it. The question is how much it resonates in the general movement.

    Do me a favor and notice how many did like it before you try to be the ohh so fair to everyone, fairy. I am really getting sick of you.

    So…somebody explain how this is NOT obviously the tone, diction and exact response expected from Mr. Chunky. No, I don’t see the point of this filmic exercise in snuffery, but I do like poking a stick into the wasp-nest of the fat slob and his idiot-minions. For that reason, and for that reason alone, two big thumbs-up to Mr. Mullen!

    Now, you down there…IT PUTS THE LOTION ON ITS SKIN, OR ELSE IT GETS THE HOSE AGAIN!!

    Excuse me. Little plumbing-problem in the sub-basement.

    Interesting short flick, compelling in a weird way. It’s funny how it’s all shot in close up or extreme close up. Probably a good choice as it avoids having to worry about backgrounds and set dressing and all that, really emphasizes the characters’ faces.

    I got flashbacks to “Falling Down,” that movie with Michael Douglas from the ’90s about a fired executive (?) who finally breaks down and strikes back at the system. I also got a little Populist / Bo Gritz vibe from the film for some reason. I like it.

    Just in case you are stalking again and again over here LUDBITCH you frantic,hysterical,suffering menopause from a dozen women,Piece.of.shit.drama queen. I did not watch the movie myself.Because simply I do not like those sorts of movies.I don’t watch videos of Islamics sawing off heads either. But just so you know.It is none and I do mean NONE of your business what movies are made and who made them or where they are shown. However…if someone put together all the posts and remarks you and your fellow PIECE OF SHIT CATO has written and said about Sarah it would rank right up there with whatever is in this movie. Until you become something other than the piece of shit that you are and show in all your posts you should not condemn anything anywhere. PS This movie has nothing to do with the tea party you piece of shit. If all the hysteria and lies were taken out of your post not even your name would remain.

    Hello all, thank you for taking the time to watch the film and a big thank you to Rodan for having us on the show. We have been getting a lot of lot of negative responses over at LGF and for whatever reason there seems to be a feud between both sites/blogs. I find it sad that they have to continue to focus on the wrong aspects of the film but respect their right for free speech. This is what we posted on their site as a response to their ripping apart of our film, before their moderator took it down five minutes later:

    “First off, I’d like to thank all those who watched the full film and took the time to comment on the art that we’ve made. The film is not a message to start a violent revolution at all -- the film is a fictional narrative piece made for entertainment purposes. It’s not meant to be taken literally.

    Also, there have been comments on here about Bill Hicks -- we put “In Loving Memory of Bill Hicks” because I myself as a free-thinking individual have been inspired by him (certain aspects of this film -- not all -- not the violent parts -- although he does make jokes about getting out of cars and shooting people for “not making a right turn on red” -- one of my favorite routines by him as well as his amazing commentary of life being “just a ride”) so I felt the need to put his name there because he has inspired me to open my mind, research and explore different avenues of social and political awareness -- whether it’s in the film or not is not the point -- I as a citizen of the United States of America has the right, as does every other citizen, filmmaker or artist, to dedicate a film to whoever I choose because of his inspiration that awoken me in many different ways because of his actions and his way of thinking. That does not mean the film has to be HIS VIEWS. The film is dedicated to Bill because as a fan of his comedy and understanding of the world I felt the need to do so.

    The main point is that this film is fiction. It’s a form of entertainment. We are not telling people to go out to kill politicians. I myself do not believe in violence but I will comment on this aspect -- the way things are going and the way politicians are screwing over the American people, it seems more likely that things like this CAN happen. That does not mean we want it to happen nor do we advocate it.

    Many seemed to have missed the point of the film -- IT’S ENTERTAINMENT. We are filmmakers who love our country and sure, you can nitpick the storyline and continue to bash it if you’d like, that your freedom of speech. I myself speak out about things I do not agree with, so I understand your wanting to do as with Mr. Mullen -- we’re all in the same boat looking to find a level of communication where we can share our art with one another -- Mullen is not for children and it’s not for everyone. It’s a horror film that was made for no money and made because we wanted to make a dark film with no restrictions. Sometimes that causes controversy so be it.”

    Thank you for taking the time to listen into the show for those who did.
