Thread: Buy this DVD!
#1 Buy this DVD!12-28-2008, 10:54 AM
I haven't bought DVDs in a while...I usually rent them, figuring most movies are worth just watching once.
I will make an exception for An American Carol, being released on Tuesday. I would hope my fellow conservatives would make a similar effort.
Here's a little blurb about it from http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/An_American_Carol:
Presented from a politically conservative perspective, the film is a parody of liberal film maker Michael Moore that "lampoons contemporary American culture, particularly Hollywood." It uses the framework of A Christmas Carol but moves the setting of the story from Christmas to Independence Day. The screenplay is written by Myrna Sokoloff and Zucker. The supporting cast includes Kelsey Grammer, Jon Voight, Dennis Hopper, Trace Adkins, Gary Coleman, Jillian Murray and Leslie Nielsen.
The movie didn't do too well at the box office, probably a combination of factors including accusations of movie theaters attributing ticket sales to other films so that it would appear to be a flop. This would be "DUing" a film, and we all know how our Democratic fiends love to tip the scales in their favor.
More from Wikipedia...
To date, An American Carol has grossed $7 million after having a production budget of $20 million.
David Zucker, in an interview with National Review Online, had suggested a sequel as his next possible project, but now says he is done making conservative comedies Zucker laments that the audience for this type of film is the type that waits for it to be available on DVD. The poor box office performance may make it more difficult for films with conservative themes to be produced for release to theaters.
So far, I've seen it advertised at Best Buy for $14.99, $29.99 for Blu-Ray.Nothing says "idiot inside" better than an Obama/Biden bumper sticker.

Fargo was somewhat strange (especially the wood chipper scene), I fell asleep during "O Brother" and The Big Lebowski was The Big Letdown, in my opinion.
Burn After Reading is just too saturated with liberal idiots for my taste. Not only are they liberal idiots in real life (especially Clooney), but the IQs of the characters in this flick wouldn't add up to 60. Pitt plays an exceptionally clueless idiot, as does McDormand. I saw very little to laugh about, but I think it was meant to be funny. I haven't seen "No Country For Old Men" yet, but with this downward-spiralling trend of Coen brothers flicks, I don't think I'll be seeing it for a while.Nothing says "idiot inside" better than an Obama/Biden bumper sticker.
