New Movie The Vice.

Recommended Posts

May be this should have went to Silly town? It could get silly? 🙄

 

Ok the preview on TV shows Cheney sitting in a SUV when he lets off the shot to Harry Whittington but all accounts of it was they were in the field Quail hunting. Which was it?

 

I would think if the writer went off on a falsehood they could be held for Liable.

The whole thing looks like a spoof from the previews.  I might rent it some day just for kicks.  Plus I’m kind of an Amy Adams fan. 😊

I'm just really interested to know if they are going to portray him as just shooting the guy in the face while sitting in the SUV. I'm not sure how that wouldn't start a big pile of craap flying since they all said it was an accident in the field.

I'm guessing there is a lot more to the movie than just that one scene........

 

Me? I'd rather go see Clint Eastwood's The Mule.

The Lawyer Dick Cheney Shot in the Face Says He’s Definitely Going to See ‘Vice’

Harry Whittington told the Daily Mail that he doesn't expect the scene showing his shooting to be accurate.

With Christian Bale and Amy Adams front and center, plus six Golden Globe nominations, “Vice” is expected to bring in quite the crowd when it opens in theaters Christmas Day, and one person who will definitely be buying a movie ticket is Harry Whittington. The 91-year-old former lawyer was 78 when he got shot in the face by Vice President Dick Cheney during a 2006 quail hunt in Riviera, Texas.

 

“I’m planning to watch it and some of my daughters have talked about going to see it after watching the trailer,” Whittington told the Daily Mail. “I told them I would go with them. We don’t know much about the film and have not been contacted by the producers. The trailer is not exactly what happened and there was no automobile involved.”

The official “Vice” trailer includes a brief scene of Bale’s Cheney sitting in a car and accidentally firing his weapon. The actual incident, dubbed “Quailgate” by the media, occurred on February 11, 2006. Cheney allegedly fired at what he thought was a bird in the sky but ended up shooting 150 birdshot pellets at Whittington.

 

“We were behind some bird dogs and were walking along, the Vice President was off to my left side,” Whittington recalled of the accident. “I saw him swing his gun toward a bird which flew up. I remember that motion and then smelling the gunpowder. I woke up and I was in an ambulance on the way to hospital.”

 

Whittington had to have surgery to remove the pellets from his face and body. The lawyer also suffered a heart attack because of the lead that found its way into his blood vessels.

 

“I still have a few pellets in my body but they are not causing any problems,” Whittington added. “I have no hard feelings toward the Vice President. It was 12 years ago but it’s one of those stories that doesn’t go away. I had been hunting for 50 years before this happened and it was an accident, I can see how it can happen.”

 

“Vice,” directed by Adam McKay, opens in theaters December 25 via Annapurna Pictures.

I saw the movie. Honestly I think it was terribly written and came off as being a total smear on Cheney. It also seemed to be a sequel to the Dubya movie. They portrayed Cheney as somewhat of a bumbling fool with little to nothing to say throughout the majority of the movie.

 

If this is the best the left can come up with, just wait until the 3rd rendition comes out about Trump.

Thanks for the review.

How did they portray the shooting?  Was he sitting in a SUV or out in the field as was reported at the time?

Leech,

 

He was sitting in an SUV with the door open. It was only short blurb of the incident. They then cut to Whittington apologizing for the incident.

I guess that is my point of this thread, that the writer-producer of the movie should be sued for slander if the shooting was an accident in the field hunting and all there reported it as such. Or Cheney needed to go to jail for attempted manslaughter if he indeed did just pull on the guy while sitting in the SUV.  Not sure why he's not making a big stink and suing this producer, or he just wants it to go away? It will be interesting to see if anything comes out of this movie?

    • All you guys still don't get it.   I didn't explain it well enough.    There are three batteries, each can hold 80 Amp hours.      When the 24 volt motor is in use, two of the batteries use some of their capacity, equal for each battery.   So let's say you use 10 amps for two hours.   Now you have two batteries with 60 and one with 80.   Run all three (36 volt motor) for 6 hours at 10 and two batteries will be totally discharged and one will still have some charge.   Any further current draw will potentially damage the two batteries that are totally discharged.      Of course the 36 volt motor will probably quit working as soon as two of the batteries are flat, but the concern is there.
    • pulled the sled out, turned the key after putting in fresh gas, and it fired up spot on. seems to want to go, as it jumped at a little throttle, bring on the snow, its ready.
    • Del is correct 3ea 12v batteries in series are required to get 36v. 2 in series to get 24v and each battery 12v. You can connect a + and - wire to each individual battery, while wired in series, and run 3 separate 12v isolated devices. A + and - to either of 2 in series gives you 24v.   You NEED a "3 bank marine charger" which has 3+ and 3- charging wires which charges the 3 batteries independent of each battery. When one battery reaches full charge, that bank shuts off other 2 banks continue to charge until respective batteries are fully charged. Batteries will not overcharge.    You can run both 36v and 24v motors on a 3 in series batteries but DON'T run both at the same time. Current draw on the 2 24v batteries will greatly reduce battery life and under serve current on the 36v motor.   Best solution is separate battery banks and chargers for each motor and a separate 12v for starting motor and running 12v electronics.    Suggestion, carry a set of jumper cables long enough to reach from the battery bank to your primary motor battery. If your starter battery dies 5 miles off shore, just jumper to any one of the trolling motor batteries to start your engine.
    • Well that game went about as expected. Was worse for me, because my directv went out, so I had to listen to the game. Couple plays I wish they would have done differently...go for the touchdown at the end of the first half, instead of field goal. And when it was 4th down midway through the 4th quarter, they should have kicked the field goal instead of going for it. Was fun having a top ten ranking while it lasted. That loss guaranteed gameday won’t be here for Wisconsin game.
    • You definitely want a salt shield as it will keep SOME slush gravel  etc off of the sleds but plenty still comes over so you want to have a quality cover on your sled to
    • I have wondered what happens to those mallards that the kids feed bread to all summer on Vermilion when duck season starts...  Summer... walk out on the dock and here they come....  Fall ????
    • All the corn I have starts with an A.  And I have plenty of them.  A couple houses hung too.  Spose I should put the Free Food and Lodging sign And get some more takers. 🌰🦆👨‍🍳
