Commenting on the new film Stop-Loss and its box office performance, Deadline Hollywood Daily quotes a studio source:
"No one wants to see Iraq war movies. No matter what we put out there in terms of great cast or trailers, people were completely turned off. It's a function of the marketplace not being ready to address this conflict in a dramatic way because the war itself is something that's unresolved yet. It's a shame because it's a good movie that's just ahead of its time."
Then in the comments the Red-State fascist Kool-Aid drinkers crawled out from under their rocks with the usual I Love Big Brother As Long As A Republican Is President crap:
Stop Loss is a loser because the rest of America is not as anti-America as Hollywood or B. Hussein Obama.
My comment: GO TO HELL YOU RACIST! NOTHING IS MORE "ANTI-AMERICAN" THAN WHAT BUSH HAS DONE TO THIS COUNTRY!
Next we have this loser:
WHEN IS THE MEDIA AND HOLLYWOOD GOING TO FIGURE OUT THAT THE ONLY PEOPLE AGAINST THE WAR ON TERROR,ARE THE MEDIA AND HOLLYWOOD.MAKE ONE MOVIE SUPPORTING THE TROOPS AND IT WILL BE A BLOCKBUSTER.JOHN WAYNE IS ROLLING IN HIS GRAVE.

My comment: So the war in Iraq is the same as the "War on Terror", eh? You fail, Bozo! And read the news once in a while, "skip", the latest poll results (March 08) show the American people opposed to this evil mess. When asked "Do you think the result of the war with Iraq was worth the loss of American life and other costs of attacking Iraq, or not?" 64% said it was not worth it and only 29% said it was worth it. When asked "Do you favor or oppose the U.S. war in Iraq?" only 32% said they were in favor and 66% said they were opposed.
Don't worry, it gets worse. These two Daves both excel at making asinine remarks:
The difference between today’s “war” movies, and those of generations past is that the “classics” give the audience something to cheer for…THE AMERICANS.
There was a sense of PRIDE in one’s county, and it’s mission…Halting oppression, tyranny, the spread of communism.
Comment by Dave
Hollywood is so out of touch that they are teetering on self destruction. Not only is America against the culture corruption that Hollywood tries to mainstream but the anti-American attitude of their Iraq propaganda war films is sure to choke them. With the exception of the Hollywood creatures, Americans by and large love America. Want to make a blockbuster film on the Iraq war? Try focusing on the liberation of 25 million people form the oppression they’ve suffered for 30 years. This liberation made possible only because of the incredible US armed forces. Try portraying the remarkable progress and success of this endeavor. And yes, the Iraq war has been and continues to be an awesome and selfless accomplishment for our great country. Wake up Hollywood while you still have the chance.

My response: Dave and David, why don't you both go shove it where the Sun don't shine. Neither of you have the slightest clue. Is America always right, no matter what our criminal government does? Are you proud that your military drops bombs on the heads of children? Are you proud of the fact that we invaded a country that did not attack us, in violation of Nuremberg? That the war may cost us up to 3 trillion dollars or more? David says: "the Iraq war has been and continues to be an awesome and selfless accomplishment". Huh??? Yeah, keep telling yourself that, David. Whatever the two of you are smoking, I don't want any.
There were a few sensible comments, such as this:
The problem with Iraq themed movies is not that they are “anti-american” or “anti-military” but that they are not escapist...If I want to be depressed about the state of the world, I’ll just stay home and watch the news.
The Kool-Aid drinkers have destroyed the Republican party and any conservative values and principles it once had. They are as delusional as their Great Leader, accusing "Hollywood" of being against the war while implying that the average American supports our interventionist foreign policy completely. How else could they make such comments as those above with all the polls showing the public has turned away from the invasion and wants our troops to come home?
