Can’t Shut Up About Bubba Ho-Tep

— Posted by John Campea

bubhot.jpgOkay, Shut up. I know I said I wouldn’t ask again about this movie being released wide, and I won’t…
… I will, however, rant about the zippy stupidity of the corporate morons who didn’t. BECAUSE THERE’S MORE NEWS!!!!

Remember Vitagraph films? – They’re the independent geniuses who were brave enough to give “Bubba” the best release, albeit small, as they could — I mentioned them at the end of this post. What about them you ask? — Well, sit – let me flap about it.

Well, on the list of Independent Distributors… Vitagraph is… oh,… what’s that word … number.. what.. ummm oh yeah, ONE!!!! Number One you fruitless, mind-numbed yutzs!! Here’s Proof!

The only Film Vitagraph film they have released is Bubba Ho-Tep…
On the per-screen average on the independent chart, Bubba Ho-Tep is number 2!! NUMBER 2!!! Only losing out to the new release of Scarface, but BEATING “Lost in Translation” (great flick) and “Mambo Italiano”. BEATING!!! Bubba Ho-Tep made a WHOPPING $17,818 per screen over the weekend on the two screens it was playing at.

Let’s compare that for a second:
    Bubba Ho-Tep
         Total Per screen average = $17,818

    The Rundown (Number 1 at the box office this past weekend)
        Box Office Take = 18.5 million
        Number of Screens Released on = 3152
         Total Per Screen Average = $5,869

I rest my case. The fact I can’t see this movie is stupid.

"History prefers legends to men. It prefers nobility to brutality, soaring speeches to quite deeds. History remembers the battle, but forgets the blood. However, history remembers me before I was a President. It shall only remember a fraction of the truth."
