Megyn Kelly Marcus Luttrell: Real ‘Lone Survivor’ Responds To Media Critics [Updated]

On Wednesday Glenn Beck offered to fly clueless Amy Nicholson of LA Weekly to his Dallas studios first class if she will Glenn Beck Offers to Pay Amy Nicholson of LA Weekly to Read Lone Survivor Review to Marcus Luttrellread the review she wrote of “Lone Survivor” in the presence of former Navy SEAL Marcus Luttrell, on whom the film is based.

In her article, Nicholson describes “Lone Survivor” as an embellished “jingoistic snuff film” with an attitude of “brown people bad, American people good.” She also claims the SEALs only faced around 10 enemy Taliban fighters, and seems to belittle the fact that Patrick Robinson helped write the book on which the film is based, because Luttrell was serving another tour of duty.

In addition to calling her a “vile, repugnant, and ignorant liar,” Beck took issue with the film critic’s “sanctimonious” attitude that somehow writing a book is more important than actually “living the story.”

Beck said, “I mean this sincerely – I will fly you first class,” Beck said. “I will put you up at the Four Seasons … You will dine on the finest possible food, and you will come in here and you will sit down and speak these words to Marcus Luttrell. If you have the balls to say what you just said to Marcus Luttrell and back it up, go for it.”

But the multimedia personality predicted that the “coward” of an author will “hide” behind her cherished word processor while “people like Marcus Luttrell are out doing real things.”

The military action drama “Lone Survivor” was expected to take in $20 million to $25 million at the box office – a decent if hardly overwhelming number for a movie that cost about $40 million to make.

But when final numbers came in Monday afternoon, the Universal Pictures release had outperformed even the most optimistic forecasts and nearly made its production costs back: It tallied $37.9 million, the second-biggest opening ever in the month of January.

TheBlazeTV: Less than a week after the Golden Globe awards, the 2014 Oscar nominations were announced Thursday. “Lone Survivor,” a favorite among Blaze readers, scored two nominations, but probably for categories you wouldn’t expect.

The film covering the true story of a SEAL team mission in Afghanistan in 2005 was not nominated for Best Picture. Mark Walberg, who stars as Marcus Luttrell off whose memoir the film is based, did not get a Best Actor nomination.

“Lone Survivor” was nominated in the categories Sound Editing and Sound Mixing.  It is liberal Hollywood… I guess it is the best they could muster?!?

You might be wondering about the difference between these two jobs and why they’re important to film. The blog Deadline Hollywood delved into this topic last year after :

Sound editors assemble all the sound elements except music and edit it into a soundtrack that is synchronized to the images on screen. That includes assembling everything from dialogue tracks recorded on location to sound effects, Foley and ADR, or additional dialogue recording. The mixer then takes the elements of the edited soundtrack and the music and adjusts the volume levels and 3D placement in the theatrical environment.

Deadline Hollywood reported that there is often overlap between the two functions though.

“There used to be a very definitive line between what sound editors do and sound mixers do, and it’s a little blurrier now in, I think, a very good way,” Philip Stockton, who was nominated in 2013 with with Eugene Gearty in the sound editing category for “Life Of Pi,” told Deadline Hollywood. “Sound editors go to mixes; mixers don’t hang around while you’re editing. One feeds into the next.”

About Ask Marion

I am a babyboomer and empty nester who savors every moment of my past and believes that it is the responsibility of each of us in my generation and Americans in general to make sure that America is as good or even a better place for future generations as it was for us. So far... we haven't done very well!! Favorite Quotes: "The first 50 years are to build and acquire; the second 50 are to leave your legacy"; "Do something that scares you every day!"; "The journey in between what you once were and who you are becoming is where the dance of life really takes place". At age 62 I find myself fighting inoperable uterine Cancer and thanks to the man upstairs and the prayers from so many people including many of my readers from AskMarion and JustOneMorePet... I'm beating it. After losing our business because of the economy and factors related to the re-election of President Obama in 2012 followed by 16-mos of job hunting, my architect-trained husband is working as a trucker and has only been home approximately 5-days a month since I was diagnosed, which has made everything more difficult and often lonely... plus funds are tight. Our family medical deductible is 12K per year for two of us; thank you ObamaCare. But thanks to donations from so many of you, we are making ends meet as I go through treatment while taking care of my father-in-law who is suffering from late stage Alzheimer's and my mother-in-law who suffers from RA and onset dementia as well as hearing loss, for which there are no caretaker funds, as I continue the fight here online to inform and help restore our amazing country. And finally I need to thank a core group of family, friends, and readers... all at a distance, who check in with me regularly. Plus, I must thank my furkids who have not left my side through this fight. You can see them at JustOneMorePet.
