Re: WITNESSES CRASHES AND BURNS!

Witnesses does not make an appearance on the Domestic Box Office daily listings for June 11th, 12th or 13th, according to box office mojo. https://www.boxofficemojo.com/date/2021-06-13/?ref_=bo_di_table_1 Nor does it appear on the Weekend listing that covers 11-13th June. https://www.boxofficemojo.c...

Re: Recent Threadjacks

Can you suggest a way forwards to make things better? Because at the moment it's far too easy for someone (I'm looking at Sledge) to take a good thread off topic. Yes. When someone makes a hostile derailment, nobody respond to it. I think that's a cop out. You know as well as I do that some people ...

At $8 per ticket average would be 30 people assuming no one got a free ticket or pass.
And that’s 30 people spread across 2 or 3 showings that day.

Re: WITNESSES CRASHES AND BURNS!

On Thursday Witnesses took $20,669 across 84 cinemas:

That’s $246 per cinema (not per showing). How many people does that likely equate to?

Re: Joseph used a hat to translate because his eyes were tired...

The Witnesses team decided to use a black hat as a film prop rather than a historically accurate white one. For a film that claimed to be attempting to give an honest portrayal this seems like a simple thing to get right. White stove pipe hats are available from Amazon for a mere $11.30 plus postage...

Re: WITNESSES CRASHES AND BURNS!

Thursday: Daily gross: $20,669 (7th place) Theaters: 84 Average: $246 Gross to date: $251,159 If “Witnesses” box office takings for the first 12 months map similarly to that of “Meet The Mormons”, Interpreter will be lucky to gross 50% of the claimed $1 million it cost to make. I’m wondering if the...

Re: Which is the Better Film: "September Dawn" or "Witnesses"?

Ultimately, assessing a film's qualities is a mug's game. It may be that it's easier to simply say that it's all subjective. But, as I think you can clearly see, there is a case to be made that September Dawn is a better movie than Witnesses . Doctor Scratch, I worry about you when you have time on...

Consider a smartphone or e-reader, for instance. Their screens are very difficult to read out in the sunlight and need to be shaded. Or consider your personal computer. You probably don’t place it directly in front of a window where bright light will be streaming into your face. You need contrastin...

Re: Recent Threadjacks

Are you saying the moderators will only respond to off topic notifications providing the notifier hasn't responded to the off topic posts being reported? No, I’m saying that the more difficult the reporter makes it to split the thread, the less motivation I’ll have to actually do it. Can you sugges...

Re: WITNESSES CRASHES AND BURNS!

Here is an interesting comment to a Deseret News article about "Witnesses" I know just about everyone--Mormon and non--absolutely loves to tell the story of Martin Harris. Here's the thing. Martin apologized for losing those pages. He truly repented and tried to mend his ways. It's my understanding ...
