Fahrenheit 9/11
« on: June 29, 2004, 12:35:43 AM »

Has anyone seen it yet? I'm mildly curious. I've heard it's doing very well despite the controversy. Michael Moore is a good film maker.

Yeah, he is very annoying as a person, but I think he does ok with his films. I sure don't agree with everything the guy says, but it's interesting to see another point of view.  I remember him gettin booed at some award show because he was so obnoxious with his preaching.

Was that the Academy Awards he was booed at? I remember I was watching it and he was saying something like, "Shame on you, Mr. Bush!" and they started the music on him.

I would like to see Bowling For Columbine. I heard it's good.

As a person, I think Michael Moore embodies the one-minded, stubborn, dill-hole sort of person he rails against.  However, his films are terrific and they are all factual and often hilarious.  Fahrenheit 9/11 is funny and powerful, even if it is repetitive.  I think its funny when you see Moore on talk shows saying it will influence voters.  The only people going to see this movie are liberals, and no conservative will be swayed by it.  STill, its good imo

Indeed it seems most here have their heads screwed on right.

Moore is a blowhard.  But the facts he employs are important and serious and pretty much all true.

And THAT is the scariest thing of all.

I am beginning to see that most Beatles fans are very liberal.

I'm don't think I'm a liberal, I just go with what makes sense to me at the time. Michael Moore as a person is annoying and a bit too extreme for me, but his films are thought provoking and very much on target. I haven't seen this one yet, but I probably will.
It sure is a strange time for our country right now!

I was interested in seeing this film....but now...I don't know....I'm a megaultrasuper liberal and all....which is probably why I don't want to see it.....I think Moore uses too many "connections" that aren't really backed up by facts, when there's enough stuff that he could attack Bush on...it just doesn't seem like he made something that will influence anyone to switch ties to the Liberal camp. Plus, with Kerry voting for the war and the Patriot Act, I just don't see why Moore can support someone like that....the Democrats got so caught up in defeating Bush that they gave up choosing a good candidate...he's a waffler, and he certainly won't be getting my vote in November.

How would you know what Moore has used if you haven't seen the film?

From what I understand (I have not seen it either...I doubt I need to get any madder about Bush) most of what is in there is unassailable facts.  It's the SLANT he gives it that infuriates the chickenhawks.

Moore is a buffon in his presentation but as to the facts in this case many are coming right out of the president's mouth as you watch!  Kind of hard to pooh-pooh that! :)

Michael Moore is the biggest a**hole on the planet who doesn't have a clue about anything except publicity for his big fat left wing liberal loony self.  I compare Moore fans with Manson fanatics except without guns & knives because you have to be crazy to waste your money on Fahreneit 9/11.  I plan on watching Fahrenheit 9/11 when it comes on HBO since it's more docutainment(Leonard Maltin quote) than a serious documentary with him in it.

Because Wayne's pea-brain cannot abide anything other than his little world-view.  And everyone who doesn't agree is a poo poo head.



(I couldn't care less what idiot theories he wants to espouse...it's his beligerent arrogance and insulting of anyone who questions or disagrees with him.  VERY mature.)
