    Marty talks about Battlefield Earth and John Travolta

    Apparently, John Travolta is a criminal, out-ethics son of a bitch.

    Excellent. at the very least I hope that JT and Tom Cruise get to see this at some point and put their heads together to realise that David Miscavige is screwing em both up.

    Yes, I am shocked. Little weenie boy gets upset when nobody likes little weenie boy's movies and then little weenie boy denies making the movie.

    David Miscavige has missed out on what it's like to be moral.

    Let's wrap this up in Christmas ribbons, send one to John Travolta and let JT know we'll send one to Tom Cruise too. Maybe they can get together over the holidays. So much to catch up on!

    Interesting comment: "Tom Cruise is a regular scientologist now" Was he an irregular one before that, when he wasn't getting any gains out of Scientology? Lol

    So, the real super duper Director of Battlefield Earth was David Miscavige, Dictator of Scientology! that's something I can believe

    Can we get a transcript of the video? Some of us at work cannot hear the audio portion.

    J.D Shapiro:
    "A few days after I finished the script, a very excited Travolta called, told me he 'loved it,' and wanted to have dinner. At dinner, John said again how much he loved the script and called it 'The 'Schindler's List' of sci-fi.'"

    Before long, he got a series of notes about the script that he just assumed were "a joke," but ended up being directly from Travolta himself.

    "They changed the entire tone. I knew these notes would kill the movie. The notes wanted me to lose key scenes, add ridiculous scenes, take out some of the key characters. I asked Mike [Marcus, the president of MGM] where they came from. He said, 'From us.' But when I pressed him, he said, 'From John's camp, but we agree with them.'"

    Marty Rathburn @ 6:48 "And I swear to God I don't know how I weasled around that. I actually do know how I weased around it."

    Apparently that TR-L is some hard brainwashing to break.

    "----- you can never trust a ------?"

    i wonder what word was used by DM in that statement when making reference to JT.

    I sure think so.
  19. Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    I'm going to go out on the limb here and take a wild shot in the dark before I watch this

    Hubbard Good/ Miscavige Bad

    Did I guess right?

    Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    Well, the discussion was about Travolta's out ethics. Doesn't leave too much to the imagination.

    - you can never trust a fag
    - you can never trust an actor
    - you can never trust a scientologist

    but since this is coming out of Miscavige's potty mouth, I'll take Door #1 for $500, Alex

    Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    Would OP consider renaming this thread to include Travolta's name?

    Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    OP considered it.

    Everything to your liking now, Ms. Beazley? :p

    Edit: For the people who haven't noticed already: The channel this video was posted on seems to be the only source of Marty's videos, so you might wanna subscribe to it.

    Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    I sure hope this video gets lots of mirrors.
    Would hate to think of a vid of 2 top ex- Int execs actually fishing instead of saving the planet would get taken down. Showing this vid to SO members would make their blood boil LOL.
    Oh yes, the stuff about JT, BFE, DM and TC is lulzy too.

  29. Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    The movie has Miscaviges stench of fail all over it. I am not surprised he was in charge of the whole thing. Everything he goes near is a spectacular cock up.

    It would be a tough gig being a sociopathic film director. I would think you would need an element of "feel" to produce the right emotions.

    Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    DM later sent Barbara to the RPF over this. She was still on it as of 2008. Don't know if she graduated yet or not. Her husband, Javier, also left her when she went to the RPF.

    But, someone told me they had gotten together again.

    Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    Likely she'd have to be rescued outta there, considering Battlefield Earth comes up every year in one kind of "Worst Of" awards list!

    Battlefield Earth (2000)

    "Poster for Battlefield Earth, directed by Roger Christian. considered the worst Sci-fi film since "Plan 9 from Outer Space".Based on the first half of L. Ron Hubbard's novel of the same name and starring John Travolta, Forest Whitaker, and Barry Pepper, this film had the third-worst 3,000-plus-theater opening weekend up to that time. It was criticized for its poor script, hammy acting by Travolta, overuse of Dutch angles, laughable dialogue, and several plot inconsistencies. More than one reviewer called the film "Travolting".[44] Rob Vaux called the film a "crime against celluloid".[45] Roger Ebert predicted that the film "for decades to come will be the punch line of jokes about bad movies."[46] It is also on his "most hated" list.[47] The film has a 2% rating at Rotten Tomatoes,[48] and was included in their Top 100 worst reviewed movies of the last 10 years.[49] It won seven Golden Raspberry Awards, including Worst Picture and Worst Screen Couple (John Travolta and "anyone on the screen with him").[50] In 2005, an eighth Razzie (for Worst "Drama" of Our First 25 Years) was awarded to the film,[51] and in 2010 the film won a ninth Razzie at the 30th Golden Raspberry Awards for "Worst Picture of the Decade".[52] The movie also appeared on Metacritic's list of the all-time lowest-scoring films,[53] is on the MRQE's 50 Worst Movies list,[54] and remains on the IMDb bottom 100.[9] It is #1 on both the Bottom 200 movie list at Everyone's a Critic,[17] and the 100 worst movies list at DigitalDreamDoor.com.[35] Maxim magazine printed, "Even Quentin Tarantino couldn't revive Travolta's career after this movie." The movie's distributor, Franchise Pictures, was later forced out of business after it emerged that it had overstated the film's budget by $31 million."

    J. D. Shapiro might like this under his Christmas tree too.
  33. Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    Miscavige seems to have studied all the great film makers from Hubbard to uh...L. Ron Hubbard.

  35. Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    Yeah pretty much, Battlefield Earth was exactly what you'd expect from Hubbard's cult.

    What I still fail to understand is, if Miscavige was this much of an asshole which I have no reason to doubt, why did Rathbun and Rinder continue to be his personal door mat all the way up until he tossed them to the curb?

    Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    Go study (not skim) their video interviews that are still hosted on the St. Petersburg Times Truth Rundown site ( Church of Scientology: The Truth Rundown & follow-up reports | Tampabay.com St. Petersburg Times ), if you actually desire to understand that, rather than just slag these folks.

    Addendum: McSavage never "tossed them to the curb" - they both fled and escaped. What you just uttered is an OSA propaganda meme found in the Freedom Magazine non-rebuttal to the SP Times Truth Rundown series.

    OP's VT of MR's take on JT's BE, and DM and TC on the QT is some tasty OC
  40. Re: Marty talks about Battlefield Earth

    Miscavige had Marty building doll houses in their carpentry shop down in Clearwater while Miscavige had his ex-wife spying on him. he finally realized Miscavige is never going to return his calls, and Rinder was going to to be send to dig ditches. If that's not kicking them to the curb I don't know what is.
