Weekend Box Office: PC, Islamo-Friendly “Non-Stop,” Moronic “Adult World”

By Debbie Schlussel

Another disappointing weekend at the box office. I did not see “Son of God.” Here are the movies, new at theaters this weekend, which I did see.


* “Non-Stop“: As I’ve told you in the past, actor Liam Neeson said he considered converting to Islam and claimed that the lion in “The Chronicles of Narnia” and “The Lion, Witch, and the Wardrobe” movies is Mohammed (and not Jesus, which author C.S. Lewis specifically wrote the lion to represent). And, most recently, Neeson said the only reason he did not convert to Islam is that the people in his native Irish hometown of Ballymena, Co Antrim wouldn’t like it (they probably wouldn’t have had a problem with it–it’s Israel Ireland doesn’t like; Islam it’s embraced quite warmly, and it’s the fastest growing religion on the Emerald Isle). And this movie is consistent with Neeson’s multi-orgasms for Islam. In other words, you know who the villain probably isn’t.

Given that, you know that this hijacking movie, in which Neeson stars as a Federal Air Marshal, isn’t going to make the Muslim the hijacker. And if you know that, you are right. But the identity of the hijacker(s) in this movie and their motive is so absurd–so outrageous!–that it makes the rest of the movie absurd. The first 1.5 hours of this movie is okay, until the identity and motive of the villain(s) is disclosed. And while a good mystery/thriller gives you some hint of who the villain is and his/her motive, this movie gives almost none.

Neeson is Bill Marks, a troubled Federal Air Marshal, who is an alcoholic, filed for bankruptcy, has personal, marital, and family issues, and is mad at the TSA for putting him on a non-stop flight transatlantic flight from New York. Once the flight begins, he gets repeated text messages from someone on the plane, threatening to kill a passenger every 20 minutes until $150 million is wired passenger’s Swiss bank account. But all of it is a frame-up job, as the account is in Neeson/Marks’ name, and he realizes all the other evidence points to setting him up. So, Neeson must figure out which of the mysterious passengers–including Julianne Moore, stewardesses (er . . . “FLIGHT ATTENDANTS!”), and pilots–is the hijacker, all while battling the TSA on the ground and the pilots, whom the TSA has instructed to ignore Neeson/Marks and relieve him of his duty. And Neeson also discovers a bomb on the flight and that his TSA partner has issues.

When Neeson/Marks boards the flight and throughout the movie, we are shown “ominous” glances at various passengers, including a Muslim with a skullcap. I immediately ruled out the Muslim as any source of evil or wrongdoing, as Hollywood never does that, these days, plus Neeson’s reverence for Islam would prevent that from being in the script. And, as we all know, Muslims have never and would never try to hijack or blow up planes, right? Never ever happened in American history (if you’re a moron or a Hollywood exec–same diff.)

**** SPOILER ALERT #1 **** And–guess what?–I was right. The Muslim is a doctor and a good guy who helps the Neeson’s Air Marshal and tries to save people on the plane from dying. **** SPOILER ALERT #2 ****: Turns out the actual hijackers/terrorists are two men–a White guy and his Black stooge (isn’t that always the way in the Hollywood narrative), who served in the U.S. military in Iraq and/or Afghanistan and are upset they served in a war they didn’t understand why we were fighting. Also, the White dude’s father died in 9/11, and he and the Black dude want to show the world the holes in the TSA security and what a joke it is–how we aren’t safe. And they are willing to bomb the plane and blow themselves up to prove it (at least, the White guy is; the Black guy has more sense and is less militant–another Hollywood meme).

By the way, when was the last time, U.S. military veterans hijacked and tried to blow up planes? When was the last time this was done by those of us who question TSA security? When was the last time a Muslim tried to hijack a plane? In PC fantasy v. truth, the PC fantasy always wins out in Hollywood (and in Liam Neeson’s philo-Islamic mind). Incredibly, the morons at PJMedia, per their usual idiocy, just loved this absurd, pan-Muslim fantasy. Can’t believe anything you read there. Not a single thing.

As I said, it’s a great movie until these revelations drain all juice from the film. Until then, I’d have given it TWO REAGANS. But the “resolution” of the movie changes it entirely to . . .


Watch the trailer . . .

* “Adult World“: This is one of the two most stupid, insipid, disgusting, and inane coming of age movies I can remember seeing. (The other is “The To Do List”–read my review–which is decidedly far worse.) What an incredible waste of my time. Boring and pointless. Garbage to the max.

Julia Roberts’ niece Emma Roberts is a loser unpublished poet with huge college loans who is living at home with her parents and mooching off of them. Her parents finally cut the purse strings and force her to get a job, but the only job this unemployed poet with the worthless college degree can get is as help at a seedy porn shop in the inner city. There, here life predictably “opens up” and she blossoms while hanging out and living with a transvestite, a fellow adult store employee, and the far-left revolutionaries with whom she eventually shares an apartment. Because–don’t you know?!–you can only blossom and become enlightened in America by hanging out at sex shops and befriending trannies. They are the muses of Western civilization!

Oh, and also, she is in love with some loser poet (John Cusack), whom she stalks, and who eventually allows her to clean his house for free. Since Roberts cannot get published–her poetry is dreck–she takes on a pen name and writes porn–er, “Erotic!”) poetry. Oh, and did I mention that throughout the movie, “hip” (for the ’80s! not the 2010s) off-beat music and songs keep playing non-stop.

High quality Gitmo torture material.

I also saw “Non-Stop” and agree with your take (as usual). Like you, I genuinely liked the film for the first two thirds. People are mysteriously and improbably dying on an airplane every twenty minutes and no one can stop the deaths. Whoever is committing the murders is someone so fiendishly clever he’s almost supernatural like Jigsaw of the “Saw” films. Or he might be Judge Wargrave from “And Then There Were None.” Two Reagans would be a fair assessment, I agree.

Then, though, that plot line shifts suddenly and changes from Agatha Christie on an airplane into something like “Airport” or one of those other cheesy disaster film from the sixties, with explosions, gunfights, heroics, hammy acting, and bits of personal background suddenly revealed and treated with mawkish sentimentality (and of course there’s a little girl who needs comforting).

And of course there’s the idiotic explanation for the mystery which you discuss in your spoiler alert.

It’s almost as if a new team of sceenwriters took over the last third of the film and botched the job.

I wouldn’t go to ANY MOVIE !!! Only classics on TV or DVD,less to pay these commie/liberal actors/actresses and their studios !!!!

JohnnyAngel Advocacy on March 1, 2014 at 10:36 am

I also saw “Son of Man” (advertised in my section of the country as “Hijo de Dios”). I expected to like the movie, since I’d earlier enjoyed the ten-hour History Channel presentation upon which this new film was based.

However, in this new film version, Satan was omitted, apparently because the History Channel version had shown him to resemble Obama and liberals were mad about that. My own view is that Satan is an important character in the Gospels and shouldn’t be omitted in any account of Jesus simply because liberals don’t like the way he looks.

Burke on March 1, 2014 at 10:40 am

Oh God, how awful to sit through a film about marginally employed hipster slackers. Of course, I’m LIVING that scenario with hipster slacker stepkids. They think they are oh, so smart and too good for the real world, so sitting around writing bad poetry (in my case I have one who writes awful screenplays and the other makes his own soap). And not surprising that girl thinks that working in a porn shop is a respectable job. God forbid she should have to be a “wage slave” at a bank or something. And the attraction to a similar hipster mooch is oh, so predictable.

As for the Liam Neeson movie, I knew from the previews that the bad guy would not be a Muslim terrorist, because, God Forbid Hollywood produce a film that in any way mirrored real life. And we all know that the true terrorists in this country are ex-military guys who are Christian and bitter gun-clingers.

liam neeson is
so right

how can anyone tolerate
the indignities leveled
at the poor innocent mahzlambs

everywhere in western society
there is always someone coming up with
an iron-clad justification
to slaughter all moose-limbs

if it weren’t for the
righteous among kuffar
like knee-ass-in
the poor innocent pigs
would be persecuted

How do you do it, Debbie? Most of us would have poked out our eyeballs by now, but week after week you wade in and stand in the face of this wretched hive of scum and villainy ..

Jack on March 1, 2014 at 12:11 pm

More dregs from the Non-Stop Hollywood wish fulfilment machine. In this installment it’s really the people that put their live on the line for their country that are the problem not anybody from an Islamic background. Don’t you know that?
Every truther will clue you in on that score. How reassuring to know that we’re in control of our own destiny and we could solve the problem if only we were less ourselves.

Liam Neeson has his own wish fulfilment scenario with Islam being a beautiful exotic religion epitomised by call to prayer warblings as experienced in exotic movie set locations like Yemen. So he tells us but apparently he’s considerate enough not to make the aesthetic choice of conversion out of consideration for the more provincial elements in his local community. What a crock of you know what. This is why actors are good actors but in general not especially wonderful people with a few exceptions.

All aboard the magical carpet ride. And if anybody hijacks your magical Boeing 747 just remember they’re not the real terrorists and believe them when they tell you nobody will get hurt.
You’re really only hurting yourselves not believing.

Frankz on March 1, 2014 at 12:43 pm

Thanks again for subjecting yourself to this garbage so we don’t have to Debbie

Frankz on March 1, 2014 at 1:16 pm

Never going to another Neeson movie. He’s a prize idiot, and enemy of civilized people.
The Adult World is more based on reality, possibly, than most would believe.
Recently divorced, I have dated some decent people but there are some real messes out there. One libtard I went out with ONCE tried to tell me how cool her relationship with her flamboyant gay friend and don’t I have any gay friends. I informed her uh, uh. I was relegated to being a narrow minded nazi in her eyes and she was in her 40’s but hey welcome to the new age America.

samurai on March 1, 2014 at 5:30 pm

I can’t help but wonder if Neeson’s Islamophilia stems in part from the influence of his former mother-in-law, the virulently antisemitic Vanessa Redgrave.

commonsense on March 1, 2014 at 10:19 pm

You are a racist monster, Debbie. I find it hilarious how pissed you are that the bad guy wasn’t a Muslim, and that a Muslim could some how be of help/service to the hero. That’s the only reason I even checked your review. As soon as I saw the movie and saw that there was a Muslim on the plane who was “Heaven forbid” a good guy, I knew you would go ape spit over it. Keep it up, racist. You and Paula Deen should do lunch sometime.

D: Yes, because “Heaven forbid” that a Hollywood movie would actually be realistic and show the hijackers as they’ve been on almost every hijacking and attempted hijacking in the last two decades: Muslim. Uh-huh, it’s “RAAAAACIST!” to actually demand truthfulness instead of non-stop denial and fantasy. Tell me, how many times have military veterans, who are non-Muslim Whites, hijacked a plane in recent decades? Tell me also, what religion were the 9/11 hijackers, the shoe bomber, the undie bomber, etc.? Oh, and what race, please, is Islam? What race are Muslims? Here’s a tip, moron: Islam ain’t a race. It’s a cult posing as a religion. Frankly, you and Paula Deen have more in common than anyone. You’re both idiots. DS

David on March 1, 2014 at 10:49 pm

    You accuse Debbie of being a “racist monster” because of her views about Islam. Islam is not a race – it is a belief system adhered to by many millions – white Europeans, black Africans, Turkic people (Uigur) in China, et al. The problem is that this belief system mandates warfare against non-Muslims, conquest, forced conversion and the payment of tribute, the imposition of Shari’a, virtual enslavement of women, subjugation of all non-Muslims, and a host of other barbarities. Either you are utterly ignorant of all of this, or you are aware of these things and are indifferent, or even supportive. In any event, you deserve nothing but contempt.

“and who eventually allows her to clean his house for free.”

Where can I meet this woman or any woman like this?

Porn shops? I didn’t know there were any since the Internet age.

Neeson needs to have a chat with the guy who wrote his “Taken” movies, Luc Besson.

Jeff_W on March 1, 2014 at 10:49 pm

Its an irrefutable fact that Muslim extremists are responsible for the majority of horrific terrorist attacks targeting innocent civilians around the globe. The mass media is intimidated and scared of them. Debbie is not.

Interesting observations.

uh, the 1980s called and they want their website back.

    Uh, “get real,” the 1970s called and wanted their handle back.

    skzion on March 2, 2014 at 4:58 pm

Hollyweird is in such a desperate state to find PC villains.
They can’t ever use the groups that statistically are villains in the real world for fear of backlash from the ignorant public.
So they create the most illogical villains.
I predict a movie will soon have AK-47 wielding Amish farmers just because they don’t have a PR firm or “civil rights” organization to fight back against negative images of the Amish.

Steve G on March 2, 2014 at 2:43 pm

“Adult World” seems to be based upon a true story of a porn shop employee I heard on NPR a few years ago. Her biography highlighted overusing antibacterials and how to totally embarrass a customer in a wheelchair who needed to get to a section down a flight of stairs. NPR seems to be geared to teens and 20’s. Sounds like the movie is no better.

DPShow on March 2, 2014 at 7:12 pm

Just another white bitch that thinks shes better then everyone. The media has portrayed the average muslim as a terrorist for so long now. Even if that muslim was fighting for the right cause, he’s a terrorist.

What about the US, they killed more muslims than muslims ever killed anyone ever. Period.

ScrewDebbie on March 3, 2014 at 12:06 am

    Dear Muslim:

    Your claim that the U.S. has “killed more Muslims than Muslims have killed anyone ever (sic)” is nonsense on stilts. Muslims, for example, have killed somewhere between sixty and eighty million Hindus on the Indian subcontinent, beginning with the Muslim invasions in the seventh and eighth centuries C.E. and continuing for hundreds of years. And that’s just in India. Islam’s genocidal imperative toward Jews is exemplified by the well-known hadith, considered to be “sahih” (authentic, sound), found in the collection of hadiths by Muslim (41:6985), where it is stated emphatically that judgment day will not come until the Muslims fight and kill the Jews, who will hide until the rocks and trees behind which they have concealed themselves cry out “O Muslim, O slave of Allah, there is a Jew hiding behind me- come and kill him.” This came, according to Muslim belief, directly from Muhammed himself.
    In Muslim countries such as Afghanistan, the United States has given hundreds of millions of dollars to alleviate poverty, build schools, roads, and even mosques, and commit other acts of goodwill at the U.S. taxpayers’ expense.
    So go and drink some more halal Kool-Aid. And don’t forget to mix it with camel urine, which Muhammed declared to have strong medicinal and curative properties.

    commonsense on March 3, 2014 at 12:57 pm

Just goes to show how strong muslims are. Even when we are being portrayed as terrorists, we aren’t pressured to leave our religion. And when a movie is released portraying a muslim as a “hero”, you go on a bitching spree.

ScrewDebbie on March 3, 2014 at 12:08 am

You guys were brainwashed by the media to think that the average muslim, is a terrorist. Even if they are the nicest people on the planet, you treat them like shit. White people are known to treat those that aren’t the same skin color or christian, like shit.

ScrewDebbie on March 3, 2014 at 12:16 am

    Isn’t it cute that our Muslim visitor argues in favor of Moooslim decency in vulgar and indecent terms?

    skzion on March 3, 2014 at 12:22 am

      With the least bit of prodding they show their true colors.

      “What about the US, they killed more muslims than muslims ever killed anyone ever. Period.”
      Now that’s almost too funny. Do the math:
      Muslims kill more muslims than anyone ever, PERIOD.

      theShadow on March 3, 2014 at 12:59 am

    Muslims have killed more Muslims than all ” outsiders” put together…suicide bombings by Muslims in Iraq almost daily targeting fellow Iraqis (Muslims)…Iran at war with Iraq for 12 years ( Sunni killing Shiite)….Egypt, Muslim Brotherhood vs Muslim Egyption military…Syria, Muslim against Muslim….Iraq, invasion of Kuwait…Shiite killing Sunni, daily, in Lebanon-Syria
    …Jordan has killed more than 100,000 Palestinians in the Pals refugee camps in Jordan…you dont know diplomacy…just kill…look at yourself, look at your history, while people in the west look for the next organic salad for lunch you look for another way to kill each other ….

Hollywood and its inner “trash” are deceptive, filthy, dysfunctional, and backstabbing kiss ass womb rejects.

As fas as liam neeson converting to islam? Really people?? This is news?! Hollywood is already islamolovers. But what hollywood does not realize, muslims call and refer to hollywood as a bastion of human disgust. The only time I would agadree with those islamic pathetics. Neeson.. you dipshit.. I am an American Soldier and on my honor, I would turn you and your family over to islam in a minute. You have absolutely no clue about islam.

So, to any American who wants to convert, whatever makes your pickle juicy, JUST DONT LOOK BACK… You wont like it

oifmack on March 3, 2014 at 3:41 pm

Its not my fault that the British came over, split all our land up and put corrupt fucks into power. Now we have corrupt gov’s, corrupt everything and people are fighting for peace. There is no peace without war in the middle east, their can’t be. That’s just how it is.

ScrewDebbie on March 3, 2014 at 5:01 pm

    SD, I agree that “there is no peace without war in the middle east [sic].” What you omit to mention is that until war exterminates or expels the Mooooslims in the Middle East, anything called “war” in inconsequential.

    “Imagine a world without Islam!”

    skzion on March 3, 2014 at 5:31 pm

    Dear Muslim:
    Whatever the problem, it’s never the fault of Muslims, according to Muslims themselves. You may blame Europeans for carving new countries out of Ottoman lands, but that was nearly a century ago; why haven’t Muslims even come close to creating peace and stability within the region after all this time? And what about Egypt? Or Libya? Or Algeria? Europeans left these countries entirely intact after the colonial era. Cities like Tripoli, Oran, Cairo, and Alexandria were modern and cosmopolitan when under European dominion. Now look at them. Benighted, filthy, and dangerous. And what of Muslim Pakistan, and Bangladesh? The same. Consider this: In Islam, the sweat and clothing of infidels is considered “najis” – unclean, but camel urine is considered perfectly suitable for drinking. Connect the dots, Slave of Allah.

Debbie, I am not shocked that Hollywood and Niam Leeson would show Muslims in good light contrary to what really happens in the real world. My only question is how you mentioned that Hollywood would portray a black male as a villian! 0.o I thought showing blacks other than oppressed minorities was also a no no in Tinsel Town?

Mario on March 3, 2014 at 8:06 pm

Debbie – have you seen the movie called Devil (2010) By m night shyamalan? Interesting movie – might be worth your time on a slow evening.
