By this time now I’m sure everyone reading this has heard the hubbub stink that both Michael Moore and Seth Rogan gave to the fairly new movie American Sniper.
For those of you that purposely stay away from the media and don’t know who Michael More, Seth Rogan, Chris Kyle and the movie American Sniper is I salute you but here is what you should know.
Chris Kyle is the most successful American sniper ever with a confirmed 160 kills he is a true American hero. American Sniper is a movie that chronicles his life as a sniper, a service man and as a family man.
Michael More is a communist film maker that makes mainly hack movies that subvert the American way of life. He has little success in the film market which he makes and directs most of his own movies but I’m sure that’s fine because he’s hates the free market unless of course when they give him money to make movies then he has no problem spending those dollars.
Seth Rogan is a bit not so funny actor that obviously get jealous. Most of his movies he plays subpar hack and loves to show his disgusting naked body to filmgoers.
What is going on here in my opinion is ungratefulness in the part of both Moore and Rogan. Both have had on and off again success due to the fact they live in a free country where soldiers like Chris Kyle have pledged their life to defend.
My main complaint has to do with Rogan, while I do know and understand Moore is a cowardice communist so nothing surprises me I am a little taken back by Rogan’s ungratefulness to have a career in the movie industry that most will tell you it’s hard to make happen and stay in a position where people want to make movies with you.
Why I say Rogan is so ungrateful is last month he and fellow actor James Franco both stared in the movie “The Interview” in which their characters get a chance to interview Kim Jung Un of North Korea.
The plot was of the actual interview with Kim Jun Un but also both characters were asked by the CIA to assassinate the Korean leader and from there hilarity ensues or so they say.
When North Korea heard this movie was going to be shown they asked Sony Pictures to not show it since it depicted their great leader and country in a bad light.
Soon Sony was hacked and the North Korean government was accused of hacking and trying to sabotage Sony in retaliation.
Now Americans wanted to see this movie and Sony agreed to show it in limited release on Christmas day and the reviews sucked but it was to be expected
Most everyone felt it was going to be a dumb movie anyhow but it pretty much failed only bringing in about $20 million for the opening day mainly due to limited release, you had the option to see it in limited theaters or download it at home.
That whole week after the opening day the movie was touted as the movie everyone who believes in free speech and expression needs to see. Many conservative talk shows encouraged people to see the movie even though it was bad it sends a message to Kim Jung Un that the free world is not afraid. Sony, Rogan and Franco are heroes and symbols of free speech.
I was tempted as well to watch the movie as it was showing on my Direct TV pay per view and out of support for free speech I was ready to view knowing this was going to be bad movie none the less I would at least view it and spit in Kim Jung Un’s eye.
Well that was until Sunday the 18th when both Moore and Rogan tweeted some very disrespectful remarks of the movie American Sniper.
Mind you nobody says you have to like a movie, nobody expects you to sit through a movie an if you dislike it to not say something.
American Sniper is not like most movies it’s about an American serviceman that put his life on the line. When the movie came out most all the critics started saying “Oscar”, “Bradly Cooper Oscar”.
Moores remarks via twitter was this My uncle killed by sniper in WW2. We were taught snipers were cowards. Will shoot u in the back. Snipers aren’t heroes. And invaders r worse
— Michael Moore (@MMFlint) January 18, 2015
Not surprising from a communist like Moore and I really doubt Moor had an uncle in World War 2 he’s probably lying. Again I’m not surprised by Moore this is what you expect from a progressive socialist.
Rogans comments are in my opinion the most disrespectful again you have a right to dislike a movie but this goes beyond just disliking the acting, or cinematography this was pure jealousy of probably actor Bradly Cooper and to the director and producers of American Sniper.
A little over 24 hours later after a storm of tweets to condemn his comments Rogan retweeted these
I just said something “kinda reminded” me of something else. I actually liked American Sniper. It just reminded me of the Tarantino scene.
I wasn’t comparing the two. Big difference between comparing and reminding. Apples remind me of oranges. Can’t compare them, though.
But if you were having a slow news day, you’re welcome for me giving you the opportunity to blow something completely out of proportion.
So not only is Rogan ungrateful for staring in movies he’s very jealous when actors and movie’s do better than his do and when he gets called on the carpet for stupid remarks he does nothing but show no remorse but cower and insult more.
When it comes to Hollywood I’m not that big a fan of the internals that make up the industry. Yes I know Hollywood and most actors are flaming leftist with burning communist that keep the fires going.
I do love movies however and I do love movies that take the time to tell a story of the American individual like Chris Kyle
I don’t expect progressives to like, enjoy or ever see American Sniper but Rogans comments are pure jealousy and hate and thats not cool bro.
Normally I don’t ask people to join in on my protest but if you feel so incline
Lets make @Sethrogen happy and never see his movies again they might make us jealous and tweet something that gets blown out of proportion.

END OF THE WEEK, THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SAME OF IT ALL
End of the week not too much in the news this week other than Sony motion pictures getting hacked again. Mind you this is not the first time they got hacked, this is like the third time and they keep doing nothing but keep the front door of their computer system open.
The FBI says it was the North Koreans in retaliation to the Movie the Interview, they say the North Koreans because they supposedly investigated it and all the evidence shows signs of North Korea. Well a few things, if it was North Korea then it was the NK’s government because nobody does anything in that country without the blessing of the government.
But was it really the North Korea government, I mean if you’re going to hack a big company like Sony would not you try and blame somebody else that is if you’re a good hacker. Maybe North Korea did not hack Sony but have no problems taking the blame.
1 North Korea will take the blame happily because it makes them look more technologically bigger than they probably really are. 2 It not only makes them look bigger and badder than what they are but they got the movie cancelled. 3 Have you ever seen the movie Team America
either Kim Jong-un is pretty smart and quick to respond to bad movies or Kim Jong-il was technologically in the stone age and wishes he was Kim Jong-healthy right now (I think I’m correct on #3)
I actually was pretty productive on the computer this week and was able to publish four blogs.
The Gift of Honest Integrity: Based off a post a coworker posted on Facebook that quoted Proverbs chapter 2 verses 7, I basically expanded it and encompassed Proverbs chapter 1 to 11. The chapters from King Solomon the wisest man at the time and maybe ever stated if we follow and obey God and his word he will give us common sense and the integrity to walk with.
Blog 2 Progressive Blindness: A follow Christian Blogger who is obvious a liberal leftist posted a blog on why conservative Christians can’t be true Christians because conservatism is not Christ like. I disagree and rebuttal with my own blog stating that conservatism is the foundation of what Christians should follow and progressive thought while is emotionally intent on good follows not God but disrespect Gods law.
Blog 3 How We Got Here: Based on the small talk around the water cooler about the CIA reports of America’s involvement in torture of prisoners of war after the September 11 2001 attacks. I think there is more to here than what meets the eye and I try to map out how Got America to this point were we would use torture to keep us all safe at night.
Final blog was my movie review of Exodus Gods and Kings, not that good of a movie fell short of being an epic Biblically great movie by allowing an atheist to direct this great story.
As ChristMas gets close only a few more days everyone stay safe, maybe slow down on the liquid partying a bit so some of us can drive to and from work safely.
Please remember what ChristMas means, and I just read a blog today that said the saying “happy holidays” was based on Holy Days so Happy Holy Days as well.
This day December 25th is yes not Jesus’s real birthday we don’t know the exact day so it was chosen December 25th. And no matter if you think it was some compromise with the pagans to share this day remember this. We don’t really celebrate the winter solstice unless you’re a pagan witch, we celebrate ChristMas, Jesus’s birthday.
It was that day some 2000 + years ago that God allowed us back into his eys and to live forever again. If you don’t know what I’m talking about please by all means get a Bible and read the first four books of the New Testament Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. Read Matthew and Luke to know the ChrisMas story and read Mark and John to know why God sent his son for us. Go to a good healthy church and ask what does Jesus birth really mean.
Happy Holy Days and Merry ChristMas see you next year.
EXODUS, NO GOD ONLY KINGS
Exodus Gods and Kings the second major biblical motion picture made this year using “A” list actors and an atheist director. The story of Moses and the Exodus is a great story written firsthand account by Moses himself and it’s a wonder why Ridley Scott refused to just make Exodus based on what was wrote in the actual Exodus.
Read it for yourselves Exodus chapter 2 through chapter 14 it’s an amazing account that should have been used but I guess if director Scott did he had to either except this was a complete historical event that reads like a fairytale or supernatural; or believe there really is a God.
Unlike the movie Noah Exodus Gods and Kings does follow the book of Exodus pretty closely, there are a few scenes where Scott’s atheistic view points are thrown in and it’s is why I believe Scott did not follow the book completely because if he did like I say he would have to admit there is a God.
Because the movie left some parts of the actual Exodus out it makes the movie lack its full potential and in my opinion never reach that status as an epic movie.
The parts that were left out and I’ll tell you because it does not spoil the movie and this way if you have not yet seen it you can compare and have your own opinion.
Left out: They never give the history of how Israel became slaves of Egypt. Scott leaves out some important events that happened at the burning bush. God gives Moses signs with his staff and cloak to convince Moses he is talking to God.
Moses is portrayed as an atheist, he believes in himself not God. Although Moses does what God tells him the movie paints a picture that Moses never completely understands who God is.
Left out: Aaron and how much God used him to help Moses drive his message from God to Pharaoh also the fact Aaron is told by God to meet Moses in the wilderness is left out.
Yes Aaron is in the movie and played by Andrew Tarbet but was mainly an observer of what Moses was doing. In real life Aaron was Moses’s voice and with Moses’s staff in Aaron’s hand God invoked the plagues something the movie never shows.
I believe the reason why Scott never shows how the plagues are really started based on Exodus is the director was trying to explain scientifically how these plagues could have happened without God.
Scott actually tries to explaine in a scientific way by one of Pharaohs advisers on how the plagues could happen, this is another atheist point of view. No God just freaks of nature happened maybe God allowed it or just freaks of nature you the audience be the judge.
God is shown in a child form while the book of Exodus clearly states he came to Moses as a burning bush once and talks to him several times throughout the Exodus it is not known if God showed himself in human form.
Most likely not since in Exodus chapter 33 verses 18-20 God tells Moses nobody can see his face and live. Nowhere in the Biblical Old Testament does God show his face, he uses Angles, profits and sometimes objects to talk to people but he never talks face to face to man.
Exodus Gods and Kings is a cinematically stunning movie visually, the acting is A + with Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton as Pharaoh Ramses and John Turturro as Pharaoh Seti. Where the movie fails is in the story.
If Gods and Kings had followed the book of Exodus this probably would have been an even more visually stunning historical accurate movie about how a man trusted God and defeated a great nation.
Director Scott’s atheist view pot shots are riddled throughout this movie making this a very dangerous movie to take your kids to without some discernment.
My suggestion is read Exodus chapter 1 through chapter 14 it will give you the much needed information to take with you to the movie. I suggest maybe you read it with the whole family before you go, together study it and have a Q and A session as well. Be well educated before you take your kids to this movie.
If you want to see a good movie with good actors about a great story then Exodus Gods and Kings is worth seeing. If you are going because you want to see a good Biblical movie with “A” list actors then this is not for you, you will be disappointed with what director Scott left out.
I give Exodus Gods and Kings 2.5 stars it reached out for greatness but was much too short for goodness.
END OF THE WEEK, THE LOW DOWN DIRTY SHAME OF IT ALL
End of the week again halfway through December and almost the end of the year. As I type this we here in Nor Cal and Northern Nevada are supposed to be in the mist of what is dubbed the storm of the century and outside my window it’s just cloudy with maybe a promise of more rain to come. Even more reason why I beg people to not put your trust of weather and climate from man it will always bite you, sometimes hard sometimes just a nip but it will always bite you.
In the news Jonathan Gruber the smartest man in MIT that helped build the ACA (Obama Care) and calling the average American stupid faced some payback justice with a hearing on Capitol Hill. What is even more disturbing is that Gruber is now on record as saying that abortion is a “social good” due to the claim that it reduces the number of “marginal children” what is the definition of marginal children well think, the progressive ideology is saying poor people don’t count and they need abortion to keep more poor children from being introduced into our society that cost us and our government more dollars, kind of sad that one would view a life based on reducing its cost instead of life as a miracle and joyous that should be saved and protect at all cost.
Our smartest woman in California Dianne Feinstein put most everyone and all of our foreign dignitaries and military men and women at risk when she released the senate CIA report a few days ago. The report just stated what we all knew with regards to torture being done to capture war criminals in regards to our September 11th 2001 attack in New York City. America did what it needed to do, if anything we should have done more. Bush failed us in the fact he did not allow Americans to invest themselves more into the 911 attacks like America did after the Pearl Harbor attack of 1941. I believe because of this a division was allowed to happen and Americans quickly forgot why we invaded Iraq and Afghanistan. Some 13 years later some view this invasion a mistake and I believe if Bush had made this more of a personal attack on each American and his and hers Freedom we would have a different view and maybe had a less decisive government that seems to attack our freedom for power.
This week I published two blogs first one entitled I BLAME YOU MR. FARRAKHAN, MR. SHARPTON AND MR. JACKSON; I blame the deaths of Travon Martin, Eric Garner and Michael Brown on the lack of leadership that Louis Farrakhan, Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson have brought to the American Black community. Second blog WE WOULD MISS YOU is based off a post that a FB friends posted. Something that is real in the hearts of certain people but is rarely looked at from their point of view and I felt it needed to be said so those who suffer with anxiety, depression, and loneliness would know there are people out there that do care.
Movie to see this Christmas month is a good one called “It happened on 5th Avenue” The Christmas movies should start churning out about now and this is a good one. Very much like “It’s a wonderful life” as a matter of fact Frank Capra was offered the movie and turned it down. It starts off a bit slow but stick with it because the middle half to the end it really gets going and although it’s a bit 1947 corny at times it drives home some real good points about love, greed and the pursue of freedom.
Not a bad week this week gave me and I hope you were dealt the same. I’ll be heading into the new week working a bit then off to deliver some gifts to the family and hopefully enjoying the movie Gods and Kings. I know it will be Biblically unsound but with Bale as Moses it should be at least entertaining and that my friend is the lowdown of the week.
Have not done a movie review in awhile so let us kind of step aside from the realities of life and check out some good movies that deserve some attention.
I have two movies I am reviewing and they fall under the Chiller Horror genres the second maybe even in the slasher area of movies. Both movies fall under classics or maybe one does while the other is at least a cult classic should be anyways. Some of you may have or may not have seen these two great chillers and both worth your time to see them.
First movie entitled the THE BAD SEED, directed by Mervyn LeRoy and starring Nancy Kelley and Patty McCormack. Made in 1956 this black in white movie is a must see, considered a horror mystery the movie takes place in any town USA. A perfect loving daughter is what we are to believe but is she really.
What makes the movie so good is it’s mainly shot in one place the home of the Penmark family. There are a few scenes outside of the house but most of the movies takes place in the family home. The movies dialogue and the acting of both Nancy Kelley and Patter McCormack is outstanding.
McCormack plays the perfect daughter or so we think and as the movie progresses you start to wonder what is really going on Kelley is a mother in denial at first but comes to the conclusion she may bore a bad seed. You never get to see the incidents that happen but the dialogue is so good it paints the picture for you. This is a five star movie and a must see if you love chiller mysteries. Black and white movie, no foul language or gory scenes so the whole family can view and the ending is quite good and classic of the Hollywood style.
Next movie titled BLOODY BIRTHDAY and yes it is, 1981 movie that takes place in Meadowvale probably a fictional town in the west. This low budget movie is in my view a cult classic. Acting is fair dialogue is fair everything is fair but this is a classic late 70’s early 80’s horror/slasher/chiller flick. You sit down and watch this and be prepared you might start laughing, this is not the type of classic horror slasher that has you ready to jump and run but more of a horror slasher that has you ready to chuckle.
The lead actors are Susan Strasberg and Jose Ferrer but the real stars are the thee killers. The movie starts off in 1970 as a solar eclipse is happening three births in the same hospital happen as well. Fast forward to 1980 10 years after the birth these three children go on a killing spree. The movie uses the concept of astrology to give a reason why such sweet little kids would be so evil. These three 10 year old lovelies are evil making the children of “Village Of The Damned” seem tame. This is classic crazy horror cult movie and in my opinion a must see.
Some 1980’s nudity, PG-13 language at times not a kids movie because of it and it’s a shame they didn’t need it. I give this movie 3 1/2 stars worth watching with your friends and spouse for just fun and laughs.
Note these movies are classics you wont find them in your local Red Box I viewed them on TCM so if you get a chance to see these do so they are well worth your time to enjoy.
THE RETURN OF GODZILLA
First let’s put this movie in order, I’m in my 40’s so I’m a big fan of the old Godzilla movies the traditional Godzilla films and I’ll stop there because if you have seen or are a fan of the old traditional Godzilla or monster movies of the 50’s-early 70’s then you get what I mean and saying more might spoil the movie for you.
As we see monster movies today the twentyteen’s bring us monsters that are demons, ghost, witches just plain devilish stuff that shocks you into fear. The old monster movies of Godzilla sci fi had their own style
and a viewer of today sometimes just doesn’t get that but that’s progression and technology of the movies and it takes a good director and producer to make that style work in now day’s movies. This latest Godzilla 2014 directed by Gareth Edwards achieves this and he does it in A+ fashion.
Over the last 15 years there has been some attempts to return Godzilla to the big screen but it’s failed every time sorry Ferris Bueller and Apu
your 1998 Godzilla is cow dung compared to this newest fire breathing lizard that is awesomer that awesome.
If you seen the commercials of the latest Godzilla 2014 film you don’t see the real movie you only get a glimpse of what will come.
is not the star of the movie but his character packs a big punch and in the whole scheme of things it was a brilliant move to have Cranston cast for this movie, this is definitely one of those films where the movie trailer and the commercials do not come close to what you will see in the theater.
What is great about this movie is not only is it a traditional Godzilla film but its pro family, pro American military family and really promotes sacrifice for the greater good by our proud men and women of the armed forces. You are proud we have such fine men and women that are willing to defend its people even if it means dying to do so and the destruction of San Francisco is great, I would have rather seen Oakland destroyed but hey when you’re making landmarks so other states and countries can get the visual I’ll give it a pass.
Godzilla 2014 is a great movie it’s rated PG 13 but could have been rated PG or PG 6. I don’t remember any foul words no sexual innuendos. People do die but what do you expect when monsters are destroying things and you have to stop them, guns and bombs ablazing people do get smashed and die so if you’re trying to shield your child from violence then don’t see the move. If you have a normal kid that loves monsters then you will love this movie. Godzilla is a great father and son movie and if your girls like giant lizards too even better take the whole family you will love it.
