I haven’t spent a dime to see the last three…Maybe four,as I lost track of them. The only sjWhiner obnoxious hero “wymin” movie I have seen in the last 4-5 years was Wonder Woman. On TV! interventor Nov 13 2019 at 1:28 am Saw Midway, yesterday. Only the second time I went to a theater this year. Overall, worth it. Aviation combat scenes are great. kadaka Nov 13 2019 at 1:49 am The Farce is with her. Listen to the Farce she must. Hillary Clinton Says She Is Being Urged To Run By Many, Many, Many Voices In Her Head Now where did I put that unopened collector’s edition boxed set of the first three movies after Lucas tweaked them? Stereo VHS, should be worth something. Henry Nov 13 2019 at 3:10 am Unless Greedo shoots first, then only about two-fitty. Bill G Nov 13 2019 at 7:31 am Love that Babylon Bee. Wood Nov 13 2019 at 7:34 am I have that set. Opened and watched many times. I wish I had the untweaked versions. Last time we watched them was on generator power during hurricane Michael. DVR doesn’t work if it can’t contact the mother ship. Time to cut the cord… Pamela Nov 13 2019 at 1:29 pm Did they change her meds again, or is she mixing them with something not recommended to wash them down with? AlexJ Nov 13 2019 at 2:48 am Thought it was ” The Last Hype”. Is Disney recapturing the energy from the ever increasing spin rate from poor Walt’s body? Uncle Walt would be very disappointed with what his life’s work has become. Tragic Hollywood! Halley Nov 13 2019 at 5:19 am Walt would be horrified. Along with being a staunch anti-communist, he put Tinkerbell in that fetching ultra-mini-skirt, neither of which would be allowed by the PC Police now running the company. eon Nov 13 2019 at 8:33 am Disney hasn’t had a new idea since Walt died (1966). The Lion King was basically Bambi all over again. Their one pre-SW acquisition space SF epic, The Black Hole (1979), was pretty much a rehash of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea (1954), which wasn’t very good to begin with. (Of course, neither was the original novel. Sorry to state, but Jules Verne was not a particularly good writer. BTW, most modern editions of his novels, notably Hector Servadec aka The Career of a Comet aka Off on a Comet, are only about 75% to 80% of their original length, after the editors at British and American publishers in the 1870s to early 1900s deleted Verne’s repetitive and long anti-Semitic rants.) Disney has been little more than a conglomerate that sticks its trademark on others’ work for a long time. Today, when they take over some “franchise” and alter it to “their own vision”, look out. the result is mostly their attempt to be more “woke” than anybody else, purely for PR purposes. Also in the hope that the professional scolds of the enlightened ruling class will overlook the way the outfit is actually run. Which would probably make Harvey Weinstein and/or Hillary green with envy. clear ether eon Halley Nov 13 2019 at 11:00 am IMHO the Disney decline began in the 70s with the precipitous decline in the music and songwriting. There would never again be heard the magic of a “Someday My Prince Will Come” or a “When You Wish Upon A Star”. Not a single song from the last decades has matched the early soundtracks. formwiz Nov 14 2019 at 12:07 am Don’t forget Davy Crockett and Zorro. JTC Nov 13 2019 at 11:58 am What was good and innocent about Disney was intentionally and systematically purged, replaced with another PR firm and money machine for communistic ideals. The transformation of Mouse City which is just an hour away, is an example. The Night of Joy for Christian youth groups, gone…replaced with a huge celebration of various sex and gender classifications. The Christmas Parade, a beautiful spectacle that my wife, daughter, and grandkids loved to go to every year, radically changed to reflect “inclusiveness” of everything except you know, Christ. Paladin Nov 13 2019 at 7:15 am Oh Gawd. You just gave them a new idea. The new Tinkerbell will be trans….ick. Gary G Nov 13 2019 at 11:48 am Tinkerballs Bill G Nov 13 2019 at 7:32 am “There is another” … Bwaahaaaahhaaahahaaaa! Cliff Nov 13 2019 at 8:23 am Try “Jack Ryan” on Prime. Vince Flynn’s first book “Term Limits” is a classic. RIP Tom Clancy and Vince Flynn. eon Nov 13 2019 at 8:36 am They say the good die young, which would tend to explain why Brad Thor is still around. Fortunately, his career died about the end of October of 2016. clear ether eon Spin Drift Nov 13 2019 at 10:47 am I know what Zed is looking at. Somebody put up a billboard across the border. It says “Mr. Kotter, who killed Epstein?” Spin DogByte6RER Nov 13 2019 at 11:38 am I grew up in SoCal … my parents were LAPD detectives. We would go to Disneyland at least twice a year … one weekend every October was promoted/reserved as LAPD or Police weekend for cops and their families. When I graduated from high school in the early 80s we spent all night at Disneyland for Grad-Nite. I remember one of the live bands was one-hit wonder Tommy Tutone and his song “Jenny 867-5309.” Back then, only boy-girl dancing was allowed on stages where they had live bands performing. Any homo/lesbian dancing couples were promptly thrown out of the park by Disney security, who were frequently moonlighting and/or retired Anaheim police officers. I understand now that the Disney parks actively promote “Gay-Days” to draw in all of the sodomites … perhaps they even get head of the line privileges too. Back in the day the park, studio and corporation reflected the late Walt Disney’s vision. The Disney family still had lots of influence over the organization back then. But that vision and control has waned to almost nil now and it’s become an ultra PC Frankenstein-like conglomerate with all sorts of different and incompatible body parts stitched together like a deformed monster … a modern day freak show. JTC Nov 13 2019 at 12:07 pm Dog, you must have been thinking and writing those things at the same time as me as I wrote my comment response to eon upthread. Whole other side of the country, exact same destruction of Walt’s legacy…and exact same feeling of loss and mourning in ourselves. Saaruuk Nov 13 2019 at 12:22 pm I live less than 30mins from Disney World. Nowadays, I refer to it as “Walt DISMAL World. CaptDMO Nov 13 2019 at 1:22 pm Scorned? By Sony? It MUST be old white men mansplaining misogyny! interventor Nov 13 2019 at 2:21 pm Watching a bit of the impeachment farce. Demmies expected steak. But, so far, were served a Schiff sammich. NotYetInACamp Nov 13 2019 at 2:36 pm This is funnier than any Disney film lately. And probably more ingenuity than recent Star Wars Disney studio efforts. https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=1&v=H0l2L4JdFKM&feature=emb_logo Snow War. (00:56)) less than a minute. WayneM Nov 13 2019 at 2:44 pm As soon as Hollyweird started purging conservative writers & actors, originality went out the window… but our leftist overlords say they are the whimsical imaginative ones, always ready to be stunning & depraved.., I mean brave… Punta Gorda Nov 13 2019 at 5:16 pm Well, Disney is the Cult of the Rat. Literally. interventor Nov 13 2019 at 9:36 pm The old alternative 1970s comic character — Mickey Rat. kadaka Nov 13 2019 at 6:00 pm New Bernie Sanders tweet, introducing the “Tax Excessive CEO Pay Act”, which kicks in at 50x worker pay and gets Progressively worse, because government should determine what management is worth: If corporations can’t understand why it’s absurd to pay their CEOs more in a year than their workers will earn in a lifetime, then maybe this bill will help them figure it out. Today’s largely disastrous “Impeachment Inquiry” hearing? Crickets so far. Spin Drift Nov 13 2019 at 6:19 pm Actually Zed is looking into the future and trying to figure out what distraction is needed to derail coverage of the IG report. Let’s so much to choose from. FF crazed gunman, nah its been done (pardon the pun) to death. How about a funeral, lets see RBG has a cold and the Jimmah had brain salad surgery. Naw too soon but WJC might fill the Bill. My money is on a shooting ar in the middle east. The Israelis are caught in th trap too so a little sideshow might be just enough. Still as it said in the Ol’ Woodpile report stay away from crowds. Spin Retribution’s my name and Hells coming for breakfast. Pamela Nov 13 2019 at 7:30 pm Well get in line. Mayhem and Insanity are having thirds. Vengeance is working out splitting cords for the pyre. Remus is right. interventor Nov 13 2019 at 9:38 pm Unlike, the Mueller Report, Trump is receiving updates on the Horowitz report. DogByte6RER Nov 13 2019 at 11:20 pm JTC … Great minds think alike! G’nite … Van Nov 14 2019 at 5:39 am I’m still waiting for SONG OF THE SOUTH to be released in DVD. First movie I saw by myself, with a LITTLE RASCALS short, in the early 1950’s. Reply Comment Name * Email * Website Save my name, email, and website in this browser for the next time I comment.
