The Free Market

Zachary Leeman presents the top 5 conservative films of the year! Hooray!
The last 12 months may have been disappointing overall for conservatives. However, film-wise, it was actually a pretty good year.
First let us investigate the year's big films:
1. Marvel's The Avengers - $623,357,910
2. The Dark Knight Rises - $448,106,311
3. The Hunger Games - $408,010,692
4. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn Part 2 - $262,355,000
5. The Amazing Spider-Man - $262,030,663 - $62,004,688
6. Skyfall - $253,720,000
7. Brave - $237,093,265
8. Ted - $218,665,740
9. Madagascar 3: Europe's Most Wanted - $216,391,482
10. Dr. Seuss' The Lorax - $214,030,500
Leeman's list:
1. "The Dark Knight Rises" - $448,106,311
2. "Atlas Shrugged: Part II" - $3,336,053
3. "The Expendables 2" - $85,028,192
4. "Red Dawn" - $34,305,000
5. "Lockout" - $14,326,864
It is safe to conclude that America is a communist nation and patriots should fear for their lives.

I was hoping that as I got older, I would find things less confusing...

I watched Atlas Shrugs Part 1.

It didn't rise to the level of mocking it.

That just seems like a thing that cannot be.

Thanks Thunder, personally I would have preferred Rick Astley.
But as Blurt says Don’t miss a single article Instead miss them all. Fecking old loony.
These conservative film droolers are extremely tiresome, hopefully they don't go to theatres to jack off to the big screen.

Substance, it was just so BORING.

During the speechy parts, they needed somebody like that Baldwin guy to chew some scenery, and the rapey parts were just changed to standard gauzey sexings.

And the trains were all CGI. CRAPPY CGI, but not so bad that you felt anything about it.

That was mostly it; it just didn't manage to arouse ANY reactions, anywhere along the line.

Substance McGravitas said...

I believe you, but it sets off my inner contrarian for some reason, and I really want to give it a shot. That impulse didn't work so well for Battlefield Earth.

I am jaw-dropped by Leeman's inability to argue that whatever films did well are coincidentally also conservative ones.
It is as if an entire skill-set has vanished.

zombie rotten mcdonald said...

it could have used zombies, frankly.

mikey said...

We need to get Krugman on the case of the declining zombie labor force participation. Surely it has major macroeconomic significance...

I watched Atlas Shrugs Part 1.

I hope that you downloaded it at a torrent site. Wasn't Ayn Rand pro-pirate?

Funny how Leeman totally ignores Dinesh D'Souza's film- is it because the film failed to catapult the propaganda?

Substance McGravitas said...

Maybe Dinesh has been ostracized for being a dumbass. Unlikely though; I think this guy just has favourites.

Though why it isn't the traditional top 10 list is a little strange.

I certainly didn't pay for it.

bbkf said...

i am highly annnoyed because leeman's dumbass commenters are calling 'les mis' conservative! it is NOT!!! do not wreck it for me you asshats!

Substance McGravitas said...

Oh man.

Is there apple pie in it somewhere?
