"The Grinch" is one of my favorites. I'll never be able to watch it again without thinking back to this picture!

Hoping everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Where are you maclen? These two are about as interesting as watching the grass grow. Give us an update on KU's numbers if you can. NK's burning up the box office - 3 weekends, $429,000. Not great I'm hearing.

People's Choice Awards are Wednesday. KU has a nomination. Should be a photo op on Just Jared right before then, as usual.

I doubt he won so he won't be at the People's Choice (they tell the winners in advance)
but I do bet they will relocate to LA for the next month or so

mikki...I know maclen will have the stats. I heard the movie didn't make more then 81,000 this past week. So I think even though 429,000 isn't good I believe it to be hyped.

This thing isn't going to get off the ground. There are some wonderful movies out here that blow this one off the map!!!

Now that's not to say some of the acting in this movie was very moving the trouble is Moosie girls face wasn't!!

The comical facial expressions in the wrong places are bizarre!!!

I got this impression from the trailers I wouldn't spend a dime on them!!!

Well, ironically mikki... Ive been watching my grass grow...and IT IS vastly more interesting than these two duds! No, Ive basically had "end of year" fatigue on blog following. Mainly the polical blogs that Ive followed are about 6 or 7 political blogs keeping up with the "news of the moments"...and basically...Obama has been a HUGE disapointment...and I needed a break from the mundane and depressing state! As to mutt and jeff...kidman WILL NOT get an oscar...and orb's cd is selling at Defying sales medicre pace. Perhaps soon I will be in the mood to get back into that monotany!

Hatti said...

Sorry to hear your state of mind maclen. I do understand completely these two can give you mental meltdown in a flash!! ((giggles))

I too follow a few political blogs and find it to be so ridiculous it is beyond my comprehension!!

I do not want to offend anyone but I really believe we need to remove everyone from office and start again with some real people like a few plumbers, electricians, maybe a few high tech guys and a lot of plain old Mom and Dads to fix the educational system.

Let's send all the polititians to work as janitors and road construction so they smarten up!!!!

I would also like to make a few changes to their contracts. I think when the economy turns bad they should be the ones to take the cut in pay. I think they should have to accept the same healthcare we do and the same type of retirement. Also I believe that when they are done with office they do not have anymore then we have SS and what ever a 401K can provide.

Also I believe before any President can hand over all kinds of our money to a bunch of thieves we should have to vote on it!!! Then maybe we will have a working government!!

Sorry for the rant. I am just sick to death of this bunch just as much as the other two!!!

I hope this stimulates your numbed brain cells!! ((giggles))))

Well, as I originally pointed out... the budget for the film WAS $10mil... But NOW... that number is "magically" down to $5mil! NOw whether the rights aquired by Lionsgate may have "offset" the budget doesnt exactly mean that the original financers will ever see a profit. I certainly dont believe so. But PR BS aside, no way this dreary weepy flick makes any money for ANYONE. It is simply a "vanity piece" for one simple nom. As to the orb's cd...according to wiki...the cd has now sold about 475k...but as I mentioned when the cd first came out...the cd was clearly "frontloaded"...and according to Hits daily double...the cd is down to #35...with sales of maybe only 10 or 15k for the week. His cd sales now trails Rascal flatts, lady ant, sugarland and tim mcgraw. Now with orb NOT set to tour until june...6 more months...can it sell 500k? Can it reach 600k? Anything below the ACTUAL sales number of defying sales of about 890k cds sold...is a failure! And again, that is just plainly...piddling!

maclen said...

Yes, Hattie...I'm Progessive...and although I prefered hillary clinton to obama during the democratic primary for the nomination...I figured bill clinton had left the country in GREAT shape in 2000...only to have it trashed by "dubya"...when obama was elected I was very relieved...and I actually BELEIVED what obama had said during the campaign...and alot of what obama has done NOW as president goes totally contadictory to all that he campaigned on...indefinate detention without cause or proof ...continued spying and survielence...to ultimately...assassination... makes it all so distastful to be sickening! Well, end of my rant!

Ha! Well mikki...thanks for the thoughts...BUT...be careful for what you wish for! Clearly, kidman is SO underwhelming for me to take too serious. This "last gasp"...the attention of the pretentious awards lot...doesnt impress me one bit. So, she maybe gets an oscar nom...BUT she will most likely lose to the overwhelming odds on favorite portman... then...WHAT does she have on tap next? The bit part in another tired sandler/anistan rom/com...a role opposite nicholas "another film drek out every 3 months" cage! What exactly another possible oscar nom going to do for her career? Get her another weepy dreary indie? THAT'S ALL she has left in her failed career! Not much analysis needed for that one.

mikki said...

I get what your saying maclen. I guess this is the interesting part for me - watching her for the last two years try to revive her career. Even with the awards nominations, where are the film offers???
