Old Man Winter: robohobo: SpdrJay: I heard that Ender's Game didn't do well, but that's just crazy...

Ender's Game was never going to do well, for a number of reasons. OSC's politics being the least among them.

I think you mean the Lgbt community not realizing the were hurting all the people who weren't political who worked on the movie because of their blind hate.


Dude, everyone who worked on the movie got paid before it was released. It's not like the gaffers show up to work on a $150 million budgeted movie and only get paid if the movie does well.

So we all should have gone and saw Atlas Shrugged too?  All those non-political gaffers that worked on that movie will starve because rational people reject objectivism.  We need to support things even if they are horrible and the creative mind behind them is a sociopath.

Sharknado probably made less sense.

Sharknado was made that way on purpose though.

What company in their right mind opens their movie for only one week in the US, and at only one theater?

stoli n coke: Sounds like the studio wanted to release it direct to DVD, but was contractually obligated to give it a theatrical run. So, they made one print and sent it to run in one theater for a week with no advertising. No one bought a ticket because no one knew what the hell it was.


Not that this film is winning any awards, but independent film awards often require some sort of theatrical release.  Its not that uncommon for a film to be shown once, and tickets purchased only by friends and family of the crew.  Its a technicality.

yves0010: They may not be a huge percentage but if they, just like many political special interest groups, start a controversy over something. There is a chance that Joe and Jane Public will listen to the controversy and make a choice not to see the movie. Then Joe and Jane will tell their friends who will also choose not to see it and so forth. Starting a chain reaction.


Or maybe the movie would have flopped either way, which is more likely. Most people don't know wtf Card is, much less his political views. And it's not like Chik-fil-A and Duck Dynasty are hurting from teh gays being pissed.

Klippoklondike: Lsherm: This makes me want to see it.  Immediately.

But I bought Birdemic, and that wasn't worth the extra two dollars for Blu-ray.

I saw it.  It's not too bad.  I was entertained, so I say it was worth it.


But you're entertained by the bad-ness and the poor quality of the video.  Blu-ray didn't add anything to that.  I just got high quality low quality, and a man who is ostensibly a native English speaker doing the worst line reads in the history of acting.
