    Can we entertain the idea that perhaps Travolta is already leaving and DM knowing this is being proactive in trying to destroy Travolta's reputation?

    Hell, character assassination before an announcement that he has left would only strengthen scientology's sure-to-be story of being disenchanted with Travolta for a long time. Maybe they're trying to get ahead of the ball so to speak. Just a thought.

    Your theory sounds very plausible.

    If that is indeed what is happening I hope Travolta is being proactive himself.

    Thanks for all that Bunny. Never knew most of that.
    Written in 1980? Wow, pretty stupid book especially for the 80s.
    Also never knew that DM hates JT. Thought he was the sacred Apostle there.

    Learn something new every day.

    Just a guess here, but if JT ever bailed, I assume that Kelly would ditch him if she is a total Koolaid drinker?

    Written in 1980, but due to a temporal anomaly, the author's brain was trapped in the 1940s.

    I saw an interview with Lisa Marie Presley after. Michael Jackson died.....she said she was unaware of his death until John Travolta called her....not her mother but John Travolta...
    Lisa Marie said her and John are very close.....
    Maybe she has gotten him thinking and he started to ask questions and the leader of Scientology is trying to make mockery out of him

    If you go back on Marty Rathbun's blog he goes into great detail about the Battlefield Earth fiasco and DM's hate of JT. Rathbun was there and posted about how DM micromanaged the movie, watching and critiquing all the daily rushes, during filming. He talked about how exciting and exuberant DM was after the premier (calling JT and congratulating him, calling it the greatest movie evar!) and how fast his tune changed when the movie became the laughing stock of the western world. Very entertaining reading, and just goes to show what god awful taste DM has, but because he is surrounded by SO yes men and ass kissers the only way he is made aware of this awfulness is when the wider world gets to see it. (This is why all of DM's speeches and public appearances are now so carefully shielded from non-scientologists and the cult tries their hardest to keep his speeches off the net.)

    Without DM's daily meddling and demands BE would have been a very different movie, it couldn't be any worse so you just have to assume it would have been better without DM's terrible input.

    Given a good producer, director, and some writers, they could have taken the basic idea (Earth invaded, humanity defeated and enslaved, some time later somebody figures out a way to rise up and beat the aliens) and made it into something that audiences would like. They would have had to toss much of Hubbard's book, but they could have made a decent movie out of the idea.

    But I agree with you, with DM in control, there was no way it would NOT have turned into a disaster.

    Yeah, I wondered about that.

    Maybe you're right, as long as they could take some degree of creative liberty with the "source" material.

    For example, let's consider a Battlefield Earth motion pictures where Scorcese & DeNiro teamed up...


    You talkin' to me, ratbrain?

    Welcome Misty. Are you an ex or a never-in? In any case all are welcome. There's no better way to learn the inner workings of Scientology than from those who were there and there are so many here who you can learn from who were deep in the craziness for decades. If you were never in then let me say, let the journey begin!

    I'm to lazy to research it. Were the Art Director.....Set Designer, Costume Designer....all Cult members?

    Someone high up, must have signed off on the "look" of the film. Including (cod piece fetish?)

    Maybe they were approached. :confused2:

    Likely they would have looked at each other and said, "Let's get the fuck out of here!"... and shot past Speedy Gonzales along the way?

    Well, that's what I'd like to think..
