More Quote of the Day Honorable Mention Part 336

“You Can't Look Away” Edition

Richard McEnroe, at Three Beers Later...:
“No one can watch this movie and leave the theatre without a profound sense of outrage at the calculated and choreographed attempt to destroy a good woman whose only crimes were to answer her country's call to service, work bravely and effectively for her constituents, and live by the values BOTH parties claim to desire. It's not a question anymore of opinion or perspective. You watch Sarah saying what she said and doing what she did and you watch the jackals spreading their lies and filth about her. It's in front of you and you can't look away or change the channel or click to another website. Yes, there are the obligatory talking heads, conservative pundits and members of her staff from her Alaska days, but the strength of this film is the irrefutable onscreen evidence of her actions and their results, and the irrefutable onscreen vileness, cowardice and hypocrisy of those in both parties who tried to pull her down. It's here, it's clear, deal with it. See this movie.”
Rick, at Wizbang:
“Palin movie does well on opening day… unless you read The Atlantic”
Stacy McCain, at The Other McCain:
“The Progressive project is predicated upon the notion that the American people are sheep. The American people have behaved sheepishly; let’s be honest. And here is a leader theatening the Progressive wolves with some honest shepherdly behavior... This movie constitutes a 2012 straw poll. If you ever want to see a politician exhibit courage, Sarah Palin or otherwise, go see this flick... I don’t care if movie theaters are not your thing. You can put off your cigarette long enough to sit through this flick. And then get on social media and get others to see it.”
Jim Hoth, at Gateway Pundit:
“‘The Undefeated’ opened with the second highest gross per theater average this past weekend next to Harry Potter.”
Jennifer Harper, at The Washington Times:
“‘The Undefeated,’ an independent film chronicling the political career of Sarah Palin, got a test run in 10 midsize theaters over the weekend, accompanied by shrill news coverage claiming the public was absent from the screenings, the critics vicious, the reception chilly. The truth: The movie had a respectable showing, and a wider distribution is planned later this month.”
Bill, at City on a Hill Political Observer:
“The Undefeated documentary and the release of her emails have begun to change the narrative. The media is beginning to take Mrs. Palin seriously as are the voters.”
Stephen Bannon, to The Emory Wheel:
“We tested this film extensively. The company that’s releasing it is a great company but it’s a small company. It’s not like Michael Moore, who had Disney and the Weinsteins with 25 million dollars for P&A and Al Gore had 15 million from Paramount, this is really a boot strap. I don’t think there’s any commercials or advertisements... in the 10 markets we’re going in. But, with social media, we’re trying to make sure the film finds its audience. I’m down and determined to make this film accessible to anyone in America because I think it’s a story we don’t see.”
Dan Riehl, at Riehl World View:
“Unfortunately... Conor ‘with one N’ Friedersorf was so worn out after his late night visit to a cinemaplex... he slept the weekend away, missing the real story of the successful opening for Steve Bannon's The Undefeated.”
Molly Ball, at Politico:
“One independent film analyst told POLITICO that for a little-advertised documentary with a very limited release, The Undefeated did quite well. ‘In the most basic sense, anytime a documentary is selling out screens in a movie theater, it’s already successful,’ said Phil Contrino, editor of Contrino said if the filmmakers continue to expand the film’s reach strategically, to largely conservative areas receptive to its message, they can expect to succeed. ‘Documentaries are dominated by people with liberal politics, from Michael Moore to An Inconvenient Truth,’ he said. ‘But there is absolutely, 100 percent an audience for documentaries aimed at conservatives. [The Undefeated] definitely has breakout potential.’”
Pamela McClintock, Paul Bond, at The Hollywood Reporter:
“The theater in Phoenix played Undefeated on two screens at one point because of demand.”
James Lewis, at American Thinker:
The Undefeated is a stunning documentary about Governor Sarah Palin against the lynch mobs of the left. These are not overly polite Adlai Stevenson liberals. They are radical throwbacks to Saul Alinsky and Jozef Stalin. They follow Alinsky and the ACORN rules. These are the same people who have made our schools ungovernable. They are not just ‘stuck on stupid.’ They are stuck on the systematic abuse of power... This is a time when morality and decency become a question of survival. Read your history and you'll see those times, again and again. Palin is only one hero today. She is a remarkable woman. But don't forget the others. Help your favorite candidate as much as you can. We are blessed with a heroic set of conservative candidates today. Don't let the rad-left media smear them the way they always try to. Just let the dirt bounce right back to the mudslingers. You know who they are.”
Ron Devito, at Palin Promotions:
“Seniors can see The Undefeated for $5 Monday through Thursday mornings and all matinees... The discount is not applicable for evening showings.”
Kunta Evans, at Random Alien Musings:
“This is a film that moves you. It doesn't give you the out of just letting you sit there. Moving through the first section, which gives you but a glimpse of the hate that has been directed at Gov. Palin, there was not a sound from the audience. It was eerily seemed as though people were shocked by the level of hate and brutality shown her. I have to say that it was shocking to me. I had seen some of it but there were a lot of things I hadn't seen. It made me consider how I would react if I were her having to deal with that. And then being a parent, it led to me think about how I would try to explain that to my kids as she has no doubt had to do to hers.”
“Palin: Of Movies and Magic... At the same time, these clowns probably consider Janeane Garafalo a gorgeous woman and a great actress, and Lady Gaga the epitome of class and refinement.”
UncorrectedVision, at Associated Content:
“So why must Sarah Palin be destroyed? She is the Anti-Hillary. When one places the most beloved liberal woman among liberal media, entertainment and political types next to Sarah Palin for a comparison the reasons for Palin's destruction start to be come clearer. Why? Hillary is old, angry and abrasive. She has accomplished nothing without a powerful man supporting her... Sarah Palin threatens everything Hillary is or stands for. She threatens most liberal woman. Sarah Palin is an attractive, successful, independent woman with an open faith in God and a faithful and handsome husband. She is Pro-Life. She is Pro-Family... She is Pro-Religion. She is Pro-Femininity. She is Pro-Masculinity (have your seen her husband?) Pro-Free Markets. Pro-America. Everything despised by liberals, though they go to great lengths to deny some of them.”
Exit Quote: Isaiah 22:4, in the King James Bible:
“Therefore said I, Look away from me; I will weep bitterly, labour not to comfort me, because of the spoiling of the daughter of my people.”
