Sure Harve - because such ideology worked SO well for "Lions for Lambs" - which ironically was another "big name" Meryl Streep vehicle with 3 BIG stars, not just one (Robert Redford, Tom Cruis<ing> and Ms. Streep.) That spun it's cog wheels on the projector.

"It was released in North America on Friday, November 9, 2007, to negative reviews and disappointing box office receipts."

Film critic Roger Ebert gave it two and a half stars, noting that at the beginning of the film, the viewer is "under the delusion that it's going somewhere."

Just like Harve's idea.

Interesting...

Quote:
Mr. Weinstein does not seem to know that the Nazis were able to confiscate the guns that the Jewish people owned based on Germany’s government registry.

Also, the producer said he would have used a gun to stop from going to a concentration camp if he “found a gun, and if that was happening to my people.

Old bat is irrelevant I am pretty sure Miley Cyrus is now more well known and has more name recognition than Meryl Streep unless you are at bingo night at a retirement home!

I don't get the childish ragging on Meryl Streep... she is one of the finest living actors, and very much a household name. Her views or being named to be in a piece of elitist propaganda hardly changes that. She is still pulling Golden Globes, BAFTA's and Academy awards. No point in underestimating her ability and pulling power.

Anyway…


Quote:
The producer replied that the justification for using a gun is “when you’re marching a half of a million people into Auschwitz.”
How does it help when you are justified using a gun Harvey… that you don't have one?

Why do people not THINK before they speak?



As an aside pretty much all, if not actually all Tarrantino films are distributed by his own company Miramax. Check out this from Miramax's website:


http://www.miramax.com/subscript/famous-guns-in-cinema


He hates guns so much that his company celebrates them… the man is a hypocrite.

Default Meryl Streep

One of my favorite movies isOut if Africa Meryl Streep and Robert Redford star in it. She shoots a charging lion. It pretty much a Pro-Gun movie. The bottom line is he'll consider the money first and those propaganda pieces don't do very well. I wouldn't worry about it. Americans like guns in their movies.

Default Totally out of touch arrogant elitist so-called liberal/progressive dimwits

It's amazing how totally out of touch are these arrogant elitist so-called liberal/progressive dimwits. Perhaps they haven't gotten the memo that Hollywood theatrical motion picture movie going if not already dead is on life support. Harvey W. and Meryl S. along with their mostly degenerate fiction film production industry peaked 40-years ago being now obsolete.

Even if these self absorbed miscreants had some sort of messianic message that was all persuasive, their broadcast platform has by the attrition of societal change been reduced to the size of a Burger King disposable paper place-mat.

At best, within a short time after release of their ground breaking anti Second Amendment movie, it will no doubt show up on the Netflix lower fourth tier. Look for Weinstein & Streep's blockbuster down with Woody Harrilson's blurry out of focused documentary on the world banking conspiracy spawned by the neo-nazi Bush and Romney families.

I've been gone from these boards for months and unfortunately this nasty thread is the first I read. Hateful mysogeny and ageism all in the same place. You know how Democrats win elections? By dividing the population into subgroups, then pitting them against each other. Older women vote like crazy, and they control much of this country's wealth. And most of them adore and worship Meryl Streep.

It makes you wonder how a film only gets a 27% critic rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but still doubles it's money.

Color me shocked, Hollywood elites who were instrumental in getting Dear Leader into the White House plan movie to further Dear Leader's agenda. Shocking! Meryl Streep is one of the best actors alive, anything she is in will pull audiences. Most Calgunners under 35 are not in her demo but I agree with the others, women worship and adore her, women vote more than men, women are now the predominate electoral force. Harvey Weinstein is the archetypical Hollywood degenerate blowhard. I have worked with him, he does get movies made, wields a lot of power in Hollywood and has an ego the size of a city. Most of his highest grossing films have glorified guns and weapons, he is the ultimate hypocrite.

This film could be horrible or could be compelling. Too bad that there is not a filmmaking duo/team that is pro 2A that holds this much power and clout.

Such fail from this turd

Quote:
Mr. Stern asked Mr. Weinstein on Wednesday whether he owned a gun. The Hollywood heavyweight replied that he did not and never would. “I don’t think we need guns in this country. And I hate it,” the producer said. “I think the NRA is a disaster area.”
But then goes on to say.....

Quote:
Also, the producer said he would have used a gun to stop from going to a concentration camp if he “found a gun, and if that was happening to my people.”

But why is this? Oh wait, that's why.....

Quote:
The chairman of the Weinstein Co. (formerly Miramax) is one of President Obama’s biggest fundraisers. He brought in more than $500,000 from his Hollywood friends for the president’s re-election campaign and the Democratic National Committee in 2012.
Ahhh, an elitist/statist to the core. For me, not for thee..........

While not as big a fookin' hypocrite as others, Meryl Streep, hypocrite nonetheless, has gained financially by using firearms in a few of her movies:

Out of Africa, Plenty and The Wild River.


Nice grip, Meryl.



She doesn't look comfortable shooting that rifle, but maybe that's because she knows RR just swept her with his double rifle according to Dave86

Streep is an excellent actress.
her most recent role as the matriarch in August: Osage County is definitely Oscar award material.

i do not look to the movies for affirmation of my 2A rights.

and Weinstein is a conflicted tool: who does he think is going to hand him a gun when it comes time to defend his family?! read the article if you don't understand my comment.

Genocide occurs because a group cannot defend themselves right? How insulting to the families or what is left of them that fought during the warsaw ghetto. How insulting to Jews! Very scary that people like Weinstein have power and control what goes into movies and TV, Hollywood can do whatever they want and the masses believe it! Jews are still persecuted everday in Venezuela but do you think he cares?

Double RIFLE
Women in movies usually come in two flavors when they have a gun: one is the bad-*** meaner-than-a-man one, either heroine or villain. The other is the vulnerable in-danger sweet variety, where they end up in some life threatening situation where the have no choice but to uncomfortably resort to firing a shot to save their or their children's life. And once in a while some loony one is running around with a gun as something funny.

Rarely do we see women who have some normal gun relationship, where the just happen to own or collect firearms, shoot for recreation and not part of an LE job, or carry just in case. That's part of the problem with Hollywood. Women with firearms are all caricatures.

Simple; if you knew the industry marketing games. People were conned into seeing it BECAUSE of it having starred "Meryl Streep" and "Robert Redford" and "Tom Cruis(ing)". Marketing was very limited for it up front because they KNEW they had a stinker; essentially a mystery simply highlighting the big names in it.

Just like ol' Harve is trying to do. It's a bait-and-switch scheme.

Yes, Meryl Streep typcially stars in great films (or Robert Redford) but this was not one of them. So people go, ONCE, because of her name and brand, and then realize - it sucked.

Yet it dies a fast death at theatres once word gets out, and then suffers greatly with a lackluster DVD release.

Time to make another round of donations to Calguns Foundation and Gun Owners of California.

I would almost respect their viewpoints and intentions if they never made, or will never make a movie with a gun in it.

Hopefully this will backfire and do the opposite of what they are expecting..
