So I went do the cinema today to see what this movie is about. I must say that I have learned quite a few things that I didn't know. I also had quite a few laughs. But the scenes where the Iraqi children are showed wounded are just horrible. I liked the way Moore made this documentary.

I was going to see this a while ago... perhaps I'll just rent it instead. Moore's movies and books are good. I don't know how people think they're bad. Then again, there are people who dislike LoTR.... [img]tongue.gif[/img]

It brought a few good points. For the most part, it was a bush basher, as expected. And he overdid himself a tad.

But yes, we all want the monkey out of office (hopefully he will be)

I have seen and read almost all of Michael's other stuff except this movie, is it really worth seeing it?
Im not a big fan of Bush Bashing, I think everyone always points out the bad parts and never looks at the good parts, but that just me and I dont live in America, so dont listen to me [img]smile.gif[/img]

Is anyone forgetting how to plan ahead?

Jesus H. Q. Christ of South Hamptons!

The best way to knock the Republican party out of the box is to just let Bush win! Kerry is already doing a fine enough job of losing this election for himself. He's worse than Musky and McGovern combined, without any sabatoge!

You might want to read the criticism to Moore's movies as well as watch his movies. There's two sides to every story. Moore depicts Bush as a complete moron and twists the facts more than often to make it seem as if he's the only right one in the entire story.

The opening of the movie was very good; no images, just the sound of the attacks on 9/11. I HATED the scene where he accuses Bush of sitting there and reading "My Pet Goat" with the children. What should he have done? The security man probably told him he should stay in his seat and pretend nothing had happened. It sure as hell is the wisest thing to do in a situation like that.
In Bowling for Columbine, Moore did the same thing by harassing Charlton Heston in a manner that wasn't efficient or even logical anymore.

*nods* check out the discussion topics on this in the CE forums, most of the discussion took place when the movie was released stateside. do a search and it should come up fairly quickly.
