Weekend Box Office: Great Antarctic Dog Adventure vs. Depressing Crazy White Chick

By Debbie Schlussel
Two movies out today offer a stark contrast between good and bad cinema (hint: the dog movie wins out over the anti-White, anti-cops ghetto movie):
* “Eight Below“–Fabulous adventure movie which mostly takes place in Antarctica. The survival story of eight sled dogs who saved a scientist (Bruce Greenwood) and his guide (Paul Walker), the caring guide’s quest to save them amidst the bitter winter, and how the dogs survive alone in the Antarctic until they are rescued. A slice of what life is like in the world’s coldest environ.
Exciting and charming. If I had kids, I’d take them to this movie. Makes you want to get one of these dogs (Huskies and Malamutes) as a pet. Shows how resourceful and smart the dogs are as they struggle to survive and care for each other. But make no mistake, this is not a PETA (or as we call them, “PUTA”) or animal rights movie. There are stark scenes where the dogs kill birds for food and fight with a leopard seal to eat a dead whale’s carcass. Animals need to eat animals in order to survive.

* “Freedomland“–You’ve heard of Earl Dittman? He’s the fake movie critic studios “quote” on their movie ads when no-one likes their dreadful film. Well, they’ve dragged out earl Dittman for TV ads for this clunker. Just simply awful. And a race-baiting, hate-on-White-people, White-cops-are-racist, Black-cops-are-Uncle-Toms flick to boot. No wonder sneak previews were being hosted by Black radio stations in Detroit.

Samuel L. Jackson, Julianne Moore in Horrid, Racist Movie

Here’s the plot: Crazy white woman (Julianne Moore) lies about her son being carjacked by Blacks in the projects, starts riots in the projects, and after major searches by law enforcement (including a detective played by Samuel L. Jackson) and the community, comes clean. Her son died in her care and she made it all up. Depressing, racist, boring, dumb. Hard to believe they are marketing this movie as a “thriller.” Absolutely NOTHING thrilling about it. Also provides cause for Revlon cosmetics to re-think their marketing campaign including Ms. Moore as one of the “world’s most beautiful women.” Not even close (in this movie). Ditto for her acting skills. They’re ugly.
If you waste your time at this horrid movie, remember: You were forewarned.

Haven’t seen the movie, and won’t now, but you are waaaay off about Julianne Moore’s beauty. She is gorgeous. And, as she proved in Boogie Nights, Magnolia, and The Hours, she is a very talented actress.
IN THIS MOVIE, IT’S A SEACHANGE.

I have seen Julianne Moore walking around Manhattan (Soho enighborhood), believe me outside of her flaming red hair she is not very noticeable, not even worthy of a second look. I always felt that she was a slimmer version of Sarah Ferguson.

I do have kids and I am planning on taking them to see this. We have seen the promos on the Disney Chanel and thought it looked good.

“Freedomland” sounds like a bad episode of “Law and Order.” Yeah, I’ll pay eight bucks for that, not.

P.S. If you liked “Eight Below,” check out “Iron Will” and “Antartica” if you haven’t already.

eight below sounds like a balmy day in fairbanks.
yeah, i know, wrong continent.
the race baiting hogwash jollywood is producing now days is “folk marxism”.
arnold kling at TCS defines this as the oppressed portrayed as morally superior to the oppressor. folk marxism inverts the martin luther king principle.
either way it is hogwash.

Speaking of Law & Order – has that show run out of story lines and ideas yet? It has gotten really bad and Producer Dick Wolf is way out in Left Field.

The Pink Panther or Last Holiday would be good for kids, I’m surprised this subject matter would be a weekend must for ANY family. Maureen O’Hara defined the red-headed beauty, Moore is attractive but not a bombshell like, say, Nicole Kidman. Jennifer G. from Alien looks plain on TV but in person she is absolutely stunning! I saw her at LAX after she came home from NY promoting a movie, she’s way too good for Ben A. And Ben, I saw you years ago getting cozy after midnight at the Ritz Carlton bar with some chick while you were supposed to be committed to that skinny blond actress married to the Coldplay dude.
On the subject of movies, Firewall sucks. Harrison Ford’s wife in the movie really puts in a weak performance and Ford force feeds you the same old part. This movie is like having a second Big Mac and realizing the first one was probably a bad idea, too.
At least after Mel Gibson was beat-up one too many times on film, he tried something new.

Julianne Moore beautiful? Don’t think so. I don’t know of too many guys who thinks Jennifer Garner looks plain on TV, either.
If it’s celeb beautiful, I go for Jennifer Love Hewitt. But, I never focus on celebs because I think you can find prettier ones in real life all the time.
