Luxuriating in Schadenfreude

Here is snarky Jim Treacher noticing how poorly the new Redford vehicle The Company You Keep is doing at the box office. Really poorly. A bomb, actually, no pun intended.

It was a stupid movie to begin with-- a horrible whitewash of just how blood thirsty the weather underground terrorist became AFTER the Viet Nam War ended.

Then reality pierced the liberal bubble, containing the buttery warm nostalgia for the good times the Weathermen had, like a ball bearing at 3200ft/sec shredding a calf muscle.

I'm led to believe the movie had all the intellectual heft Redford was able to infuse, that is, it was lighter than helium. Redford flunked out of CU after 1 and 1/2 years. It still shows in his film-making

Couldn't happen to a nicer guy.

Please, make another liberal lovefest movie. Your box office track record is so good.

All is Lost might be good, though.
