TheChampion once stated on this forum that the sales on DVD for Expelled would be huge. In Unscientific America, by Chris Mooney and Sheril Kirshenbaum they report that the ultimate earnings for Expelled were 7 million “making it the fifth highest grossing political documentary ever.” The does bode well for the state of science education in the country.

So on balance, this film, like Champ himself, is probably best ignored.

Rather, even, like the right dozy wee nyaff whose avatar graces the OP in this thread.

The “fifth highest-grossing political documentary ever”?  Seriously, that category is what—Michael Moore and…who else?

7 million dollars for a DVD is, frankly, chump change.

“Expelled” made about 7.7 million.

Then “Religulous” made 13.1 million in theaters, and 6.8 million in DVD sales…. for a total of about 20 million dollars.

Then the Champion disappeared (February 21 was his last visit here).

Hmmmm….

Sorry, been busy rearranging my sock drawer.

I told you that would happen. I knew Expelled would be huge in DVD. People like me don’t go to movies anymore. I rent them, but hardly a good one is seen. Just saw Grand Torino. That was good. Saw the Wrestler, which was good, a bit depressing, but good. Saw Defiance, which was good. But almost all movies I have seen are bad.

Expelled was good. Religulous was entertaining, but built on straw arguments. Bill Maher, he always twists everything around to suit is view.

You think $1,977,739 in 11 months is huge for DVD sales? Sorry, but Religulous has been out on DVD for only seven months and has pulled in $7,004,024. Looks like straw beats hot air.

Really? Ugh, didn’t know that. Dangit. Who is buying all these atheist DVDs?

Oh well, Expelled was better in my book.

Curious thinking people? Duh.
