Posted on 09/22/2012 10:04:20 PM PDT by This Just In
I hope your Saturday has been just as enjoyable (despite all of the turmoil going on in this world) as it has been for our family.
My better half and I just returned from viewing an early evening flick: Clint Eastwood's 'Trouble With The Curve'.
Despite the liberals predictions (or secret wishes) that Eastwood's appearance at the RNC may have a negative impact on his theater ticket sales, I believe Clint Eastwood has hit a home run with this latest film.
It is an endearing story between a father and his grown daughter. The chemistry between Eastwood and Amy Adams (The Fighter, Enchanted, Julie & Julia) is seamless and compelling. This film also stars John Goodman and Justin Timberlake.
I won't spoil this story by providing any more details. If you haven't seen this film, do yourself a favor and visit your local cinema. You won't regret it.
A word of caution:
This film is rated PG13. There is no nudity, but as one may expect from a film about baseball, the language is raw and offensive. It comes with the territory. I'm glad our children stayed home.
Haven’t seen it , and maybe will never get around to, but anything with Amy Adams AND Clint Eastwood is mighty tempting.
I rarely visit the theater. Most films are propaganda, or Hollywood glorifying and glamorizing debauchery.
Going out to see this film was in response to the Lefts caustic attacks on Clint Eastwood, and their typical negative reviews of this film based not on whether or not the film is worth seeing, but rather on their ideology:
Case and point from your run-of-the-mill liberal critics:
“’Trouble With the Curve’ review: softball
He doesn’t talk to any furniture, but he does kick a coffee table across the room. Read into that whatever statement about the current presidential administration you choose.
“Trouble” is second-rate Eastwood, existing in a parallel universe where the celebrity has been reduced to a Hallmark movie-of-the-week actor, not one of the most respected directors in Hollywood.”
This review is just one example of the Left’s inability to contain their water and wetting their diapers in trashing this film simply because Eastwood had the guts to think and speak “outside the box”.
Here’s to thumbing our noses at the MSM/Hollywood Choir.
Will see Trouble With The Curve tomorrow or Monday. Might I suggest you take in End of Watch, the new cop movie? Well acted, good story, excellent production. And I really enjoyed the sound track. Recommended.
Saw a short article that it is not meeting expected sales in its limited theater opening.
Checked the movie ticket sales for the Top 100 for Friday Night, but nothing was posted.
Either that means sales were quite poor, or the number of theaters is very small, or the data hasn’t come in yet.
Every Leftist in the MSM and Hollywood is hoping this movie fails.
Might take a while to find out.
I plan to see it. I liked the preview, and also The Onion’s AV Club site gave it a “B.” They’re a pretty lib site (didn’t even bother reviewing “2016”) but their critics are pretty exacting and for them, even a B- means it’s a film well worth seeing.
Haven’t heard of this film, but I will read about it. We do not have televised programming, so we don’t see any film trailers unless we’re traveling and staying in hotels, or we read reviews via the internet. Thank you.
We always note the film composer when viewing a movie. The soundtrack is just as important, if not more, than the film to our family.
Who composed the score?
It got a good review and I think 3.5 stars in our newspaper.
End of Watch...
Doing MUCH better than expected ticket sales.
Looks like a surprise hit.
I like both of them too. I really enjoyed the comedy "Leap Year" with Amy Adams and Matthew Goode.
I don’t pay much attention to the info, which can be skewed. I recall when An American Carol was first released. Some theater managers were applying the ticket sales to liberal films being previewed at the same time in the same theater. And that’s just one example, esp. if the film isn’t a block buster such as ‘2016’.
” Might I suggest you take in End of Watch, the new cop movie?”
Gyllenhall is a lib imbecile who basically said that the American soldiers in Iraq were morons and all they did was jack off...as research for his role in Jarhead. F him and his idiot lib sister.
It’s in over 3,000 theaters, which is a wide release.
Based on Friday’s box office, it’s projected to earn 13 million for the weekend. Not stellar, but Clint Eastwood’s films rarely open huge; instead, they open modestly and play forever.
So you’re right that it will take some time to determine whether “Trouble with the Curve” is a hit or not.
The MSM might have the power to push polls, but with today’s electronic box office reporting, they can’t skew the numbers and make a hit seem like a failure or vice versa.
If the MSM had had their way, “2016” would have vanished without a trace. But just as they ignored the movie, moviegoers ignored them, and now “2016” is cleaning up at the box office.
Thanks for the correction.
I couldn’t find any weekend sales charts for “Curve” at Yahoo, BoxOfficeMoJo, or MSN.com.
I was looking for “Perks of Being a Wallflower,” too, which is Emma Watson’s first feature release since “Harry Potter.”
First week for that, too, and same result - zero chart info.
Do you remember the link you used for “Curve?”
Good movie, saw it last night. Will recommend it to others.
The trailer did look tempting...until Justin Timberlake appeared. Then it became a must-pass.
Deadline.com is the first stop for movie gross reports. Boxofficemojo.com is the last stop. No other stops necessary.
Timberlake is the weakest actor in the film, but the others more than make up for his performance. I wouldn’t say that Justin’s acting was awful. I’ve seen much worse, but I am grateful that Eastwood, Adams, Goodman and the rest of the cast carry the fill perfectly.
