    As long as we are talking about a movie things will be ok. If we start posting political opinions we will have a problem. Also have I ever told you about how much I dislike “in before the lock” posts?

    About as much as Soviet Russia jokes?


    Interesting note on the film, Brolin and several others were arrested in Shreveport while filming. I think they got in a bar fight.

    When I was watching Natural Born Killers I could see the Tarantino in it and I kept imagining how Tarantino would have directed it and how much I would rather see that movie.

    I was on the fence about watching this, but I read an interview with Stone in the papers a couple of weeks ago that sold me.

    Besides, I don't see why some folks are baffled about this personally. People sat througth two hours of Micheal Moore failing to disguise his axe grinding as a documentary, so I see no reason not to watch a quality politicized film maker has his say on the dude.

    I actually wouldn't mind seeing a movie that provides an even-handed, objective critique of both the good and bad sides of the Bush administration policies or an even-handed, objective biography of the man himself. Unfortunately, knowing Stone's political leanings, this is sure to be little more than a heavily-slanted hit piece. I'll pass.

    I think that movie only really preached to the choir so to speak. I am on the other end of his political spectrum and I will never see it. It is amazing what people will believe with junk like that. Take a few clips switch dates around and make it look like it occurred at a different time and boom you make someone look like they don't care about a tragedy*.


    *i'm talking about the scene in the previews where he says Bush went golfing after 9/11. The clip was from well before 9/11 and Bush was talking about a different incident from oversees. All Mr. Fatass did was say 9/11 occurred and Bush is so heartless he just went out and played golf the next day. It is falsification of facts used to make your side look good.

    Same here.. I hate politics in movies. It is always heavily slanted towards the Hollywood political spectrum. Nothing wrong with that viewpoint or anything. Just tired of every "evil or corrupt" politician in a movie being the opposite of their political party and every "savior of the people" or "greatest president evah!" is from their political party. How about switching it around now and then.

    If it is a storied movie like this based on a real person, make it fair and balanced. Tell the good and the bad. Show them making the hard choices and struggling with their decision.

    I have a feeling the movie will be this way:

    Bush is a wild drug addicted drunkard who makes back room deals to steal the White House and then gives a cowboy Yahoo! as he pushes a button to send the boys to Iraq and Afghanistan..

    Am I far off on their viewpoint?

    Love him or hate him, give the good and the bad together and let the viewer decide.
