Sly Stallone, letter to Warner Bros.

  1. Hi all,

    I'm thinking about sending this letter to Warner Bros. What do you think.

    My idea is if enough people complain about certain actors, they will not be as attractive or "bankable" for their movies. Yes, Time Warner owns Warner Bros.

    [FONT=Garamond, serif]RE: Release of “Bullet to the Head” movie[/FONT]

    [FONT=Garamond, serif]Mr. Meyer,[/FONT]

    [FONT=Garamond, serif] ......[/FONT]

    [FONT=Garamond, serif] I am writing to you to express my extreme displeasure with the star of Warner Bros. new movie release, “Bullet to the Head”, Sylvester Stallone. Also, that now and in the future, I will not waste good money to watch in the theaters or on DVD, etc. any movie that this star will be in. The reason is simple. This actor has been successful and made a living portraying guns and violence on screen. Yet, in his private life, he is an openly anti-gun advocate. Mr. Stallone is very welcome to his opinion, of course, and I respect that. However, defines a hypocrite as: [/FONT]
    “[FONT=Garamond, serif]1. a person who pretends to have virtues, moral or religious beliefs, principles, etc., that he or she does not actually possess, especially a person whose actions belie stated beliefs. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Garamond, serif]2. a person who feigns some desirable or publicly approved attitude, especially one whose private life, opinions, or statements belie his or her public statements. [/FONT]
    [FONT=Garamond, serif]Origin: [/FONT][FONT=Garamond, serif]
    1175–1225; Middle English ipocrite < Old French < Late Latin hypocrita < Greek hypokrit&#7703;s a stage actor, hence one who pretends to be what he is not, equivalent to hypokr&#299;&#769; ( nesthai ) (see [/FONT]
    [FONT=Garamond, serif]hypocrisy[/FONT][FONT=Garamond, serif]) + -t&#275;s agent suffix ”[/FONT]

    [FONT=Garamond, serif] An actor is often called upon to portray someone he/she may not be. That is the job, so to speak. In his career, Sly has proven to be a consummate actor in this respect, but the fact still remains. I will not waste money on this hypocrite.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Garamond, serif]Thank you for your time, sir.[/FONT]

    [FONT=Garamond, serif]Sincerely,[/FONT]

    Your efforts would bear the same fruit if you wrote a letter to Diane Feinstein to stop trying to ban weapons and mags.

    This was a island just off Miami Beach,Fl. when he lived there. He also had quite a gun collection that a dealer was selling off for him, including some of those nasty Semi's.

    Someone should ask him about that.......

  4. Not Cali resident. It would only be filed in the circular file bin. I did write my State and Fed reps already, repeatedly. Only one tootie-fruity seems to side more with the administration and he is up for re-election... not with my vote!

    Have you?

    I would personally sign it for you But I know it wouldn't do anything.
  7. I think it's a great idea. I am going to do the same. Who knows what the out come will be. Never know if you dont try. Besides, it only takes a few minutes of your time. Beats be negative.

  8. Jerry & itstime,

    Yes, I sadly agree. This is just a symbolic gesture, however, from the movie, V for Vendetta,
    "Symbols are given power by people. Alone, a symbol is meaningless, but with enough people... can change the world."
    I own the movie, but found a clip on YouTube too. This film was also distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
