... sort of a Red Dawn for those who believe that Christmas is under assault by secular forces. It is the very first movie that comes with "The Chuck Norris Seal of Approval."
Under the Rotten Tomatoes guidelines, doesn't a 77 out of 100 warrant a Certified Fresh rating (red tomato) and not a green splat?
I thought a movie that got 60 and above was Certified Fresh?
Sep 14 - 02:53 PM
The critic rating is 0. You must be looking at the audience rating.
Sep 14 - 04:33 PM
I'm pretty sure Jack Frosch is referring to Phillip Martin's rating of 77/10 in his review, not the score on the Last Ounce of Courage page.
Sep 15 - 09:58 PM
Strangely enough, when looking at Philip Martin's RT page, he hasn't rated anything lower than a 70/100, and anything rated lower than 86/100 is rotten. What a weird rating system.
Sep 15 - 10:01 PM
Just to be clear ? the rating system I employ has nothing to do with Rotten Tomatoes system. I basically use a 60 to 100 scal (which in practice translates to a 65 to 92 scale). It's a lot like Robert Parker?s wine rating scale. And I adopted it precisely because I don't much care for "grading" movies ? I don't think its very useful.

Thanks for the clarification.

If you're an annoying asshole who won't shut the fuck up about "freedom" and the supposed awesomeness of America like the naive little twat that you are, you will love this movie.

"If you're an annoying asshole who won't shut the fuck up about "freedom" and the supposed awesomeness of America...."
Freedom...that inconvenient liberty that goosestepping nazis like Alex Marshall demand for themselves but are queer about denying to others. One can't help but wonder why hateful little Alex doesn't flee the oppressive freedom of the USA in favor of cultures more to his liking, like Syria or Cuba.
Sep 14 - 10:08 PM
If I'm correct, wasn't it Nazis who tried to oppress homosexuals like you right-wing bigots? Wasn't it Nazis who try to convert everyone to their religion like many Christians like you normally do? I think you're confused as to who the goosestepping Nazi is (hint, it's you.)
And since you're so adamant on me leaving the country, you can gladly pay for my plane ticket. In the meantime, I'm going to continue living here to make my country a better place from cunts like you.
Sep 15 - 06:22 AM
Nazis were Christians...
Sep 16 - 02:41 PM
The Watcher. That is a stupid comment. Some may have claimed they are Christians but didn't make them a Christian. To be a Christian you must love other people. Any one who didn't is a false Christian. Something atheists never try to understand.
Sep 22 - 07:08 AM
Why, you must be a nasty little snot nosed liberal, Alex. I love it when pathetic liberals make fools out of themselves with comments like Alex's that show their trashy mentality.
Sep 21 - 04:16 PM
Alex, freedom is worth talking about. ;)
Sep 22 - 07:10 AM
Thank you, Alex Marshall, for reminding me why I'm conservative. Never been happier to be a Republican than this very moment, because it means I don't have to identify with people like you. So thanks again, dude!

Just for the record, Christmas IS under assault by secular forces. Just sayin'...
Sep 14 - 04:38 PM
You mean Saturnalia don't you? : )
Sep 14 - 05:33 PM
Lisa, one day my right to celebrate Festivus will be recognized by the Government. Until then, we will never be a truly free nation (wipes tears).
Sep 14 - 07:48 PM
Naaah, it's not under attack...its just being asked to share a small piece of the spotlight with other religions....in the land of freedom of religion....you know...that little freedom....and it ends scaring the crap out of you...
Sep 14 - 05:59 PM
"Naaah, it's not under attack...its just being asked to share a small piece of the spotlight with other religions....in the land of freedom of religion..."
Is that a fact, Russ?
In late May of 2010, Wellesley, Massachusetts public middle school students took a field trip to the Islamic Society of Boston Cultural Center - a controversial Saudi-funded mega-mosque run by the Muslim American Society of Boston. There, the students were separated by gender and the boys were asked to join the Muslim adults in their prayer. Several of the public school boys took part.
Please find an example of a similar school field trip to a Christian facility where students were invited or even permitted to take part.
Sep 14 - 10:15 PM
Ummmm....there was no attack in your example. I can find some real estate listings of cabins in the woods where you can hide and wait for the rapture, if that would help.
Sep 15 - 07:47 AM
dethburger hates Flixster
I don't buy it.
post a link.
Sep 15 - 10:35 AM
Here's the real story
Sep 15 - 02:02 PM
Because the Muslim religion is evil? Idiot. There's nothing wrong with learning tolerance of others' beliefs. But then again, what else can you expect from the Borg, err, I mean, Christians?
Sep 16 - 02:43 PM
ONE OF MANY GOOD EXAMPLES!
Sep 19 - 01:44 PM
The Watcher, how ridiculous is it that you would defend one religion yet criticize the other. I did not hear that the guy you replied to said he was a Christian. There is such a thing as Right-Wing atheists you know. Both Christian and Islam are meant to be a loving religion but are sometimes isn't. But atheism can be the same way. At least the Bible teaches to love people who aren't Christains unlike what the Koran sometimes says.
Sep 22 - 07:15 AM
You seem to confuse being under attack with not getting everything you want all the time.
Sep 14 - 08:02 PM
No, that would be you intolerant whiners on the atheist left wing who require Americans to remove crosses from 120 year old city seals and public parks.
Sep 14 - 10:20 PM
Per the constitution.
Why do you hate the constitution Kurt?
Sep 15 - 10:36 AM
I don't want your death cult anywhere near my kids, Kurt. Keep those crosses on your own property and out of the government and, most importantly, public schools.
We don't need another generation of muttering book-thumpers who spend their whole lives waiting to die and be rewarded. We need humans that want to go FORWARD.
Sep 19 - 03:52 PM
Sep 15 - 10:34 AM
Just to educate you, the Constitution does NOT include the phrase "separate of church and state." That's a falsehood made up by the liberal pukes in our society.
Sep 16 - 01:17 PM
That's interesting, I thought it was from the 1st Amendment. Seeing that it says this," "Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof ...."" Hmmmmm I guess that we do have separation of church and state. FAIL.
Sep 16 - 01:30 PM
Strange, wasn't Jefferson himself who said: "I contemplate with sovereign reverence that act of the whole American people which declared that their legislature should 'make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof,' thus building a wall of separation between Church & State." Yeah, I thought so.
Sep 22 - 09:41 AM
You're right Jeffrey...it IS under assault. I live in a blue state and intend to start putting signs on the walking path near my home such as: "Jesus Saves" and crosses and "God gave us this lovely day!" Watch the libtards turn blue over it & wonder who's doing it, LOL. I can't wait! I plan to keep putting them up on bad days when no one is out there. Let them remove them...I'll just put more up! SCREW THE GOVERNMENT. THIS IS NOT A LAW THAT WE CAN'T HAVE CROSSES OUT!
Sep 16 - 01:12 PM
Why are you so hateful?
Sep 16 - 10:38 PM
no it isnt. Just another twisting of facts from right wing bloviators. CHristmas is for sale tho. Put yours in layaway now
Sep 16 - 07:27 PM
I'm offensive, and I find this garbage North Korean.
Sep 14 - 08:37 PM
Every year, usually around November, Fox News windbag Bill O'Reilly starts going on the warpath about some imaginary "War on Christmas," which apparently has something to do with the fact that not everyone is Christian.
Well this year director Darrel Campbell has beaten O'Reilly to the punch, putting together the story of one Bob Revere (!) in a movie guaranteed to be every teabagger's wet dream.
"People are declaring war on Christmas!" Revere cries, because at the local middle school, students in the holiday play sing Christmas carols with secularized lyrics such as "Silent night, wintry night" under the shrill direction of a (Surprise!) stereotypically Gay drama teacher.
So Mr. Revere rallies the rest of the townsfolk to take on the nefarious American Civil Liberties Organization (read: ACLU), which naturally is not so much concerned with guarding our Constitutional rights as it is with making life miserable for poor Godfearing Christians like himself.
Any wonder that this movie, like "2016: Obama's America," was timed to be released right before the election? How transparent can you get?
Sep 15 - 05:12 AM
What about the imaginary "War on women" that you lefties seem so passionate about.
Sep 16 - 04:51 AM
Piss off, parasite.
Sep 16 - 06:58 AM
Oh, I'm sorry. You mean your party's official 2012 platform doesn't include the strive to repeal equal pay laws and outlaw abortion?
Sep 16 - 02:48 PM
What is wrong with outlawing abortion? The world will be a better place. Seriously I don't agree with the right wing all the time. I am sort of a in the middle guy. But I do agree that abortion is unnecessary. Call it pro-choice all you want but it's technically not pro-choice when it comes to the baby and sometimes the dad/family as well.
Sep 22 - 07:29 AM
Once upon a time, there existed some smart Republicans. Lust for this kind of schlock may prove there isn't one "Last Ounce" of such left.
Sep 16 - 01:01 AM
Well, we already know there isn't one single brave liberal left...just look at the COWARD in the White House!
Sep 16 - 01:19 PM
Guess you never looked at the Occupy, Gay Rights groups did you? They're pretty brave.
Sep 16 - 01:28 PM
Loving the right wing loonies getting their mouths foamed on these threads.
Sep 16 - 01:31 PM
That's because the left wing people spend too much time on the internet explaining how they are right all the time while the right wing people spend more of their life doing meaningful stuff outside the internet.
Sep 22 - 11:31 AM
Rage on, Christians. You look so silly waving your cross fetishes around and mumbling over your Bronze Age scribblings. Just as silly as Muslims and Jews.
Don't worry, though! If you waste enough money and oppress enough minorities, your rapture will come!
Sep 19 - 03:43 PM
You sound like a fool acting like Christians are enemies of the world. True Christians are the most respectable and loving people you can ever meet. You are a example of why we can't have peace in the world.
Sep 22 - 07:02 AM
This is pathetic that you can't get into a movie website without right wing/left wing arguments going on here. Critics hated this movie, audiences loved this movie. Everybody wins.
Sep 22 - 07:00 AM
It's kinda like a catch 22. 1/2 of people that watch this movie will like it just because it has Chuck Norris Seal of Approval.... I mean think about it Critics-0% and 76% on everyone else... Regardless that the majority of critics are probably liberal anyway.
"Ill thumbs up anything Chuck Norris approves" ;)
