Many are struggling in this economy. My family is among them. Please support what we’re doing here and help us to continue to spread the truth Americans need to read and hear.
Based on reviews (Rotten Tomato 91%) and box office results ($40 Million projected opening weekend), A Star is Born looks like a huge success as Bradley Cooper’s directorial and screenplay writing debut. The remake stars Cooper and singer Lady Gaga.
I haven’t seen it. Looks like a home theater watch for me, but I’m excited to add it to my list.
This may be one of the very few occasions when a remake is worthy. Hollywood has been reliant on remakes, reboots, redos, and superhero flicks for a decade. I hate that. It rarely yields good movies, yet Hollywood’s profit machine is driven by what audiences want. Apparently, audiences generally don’t want good film making anymore, which is why movies like A Star is Born doesn’t help the cause of steering Hollywood away from their recent bad habits.
It’s poised to be profitable before Monday, making it a gigantic win in an industry that often has to rely on international box office results to make their money back.
They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
