    Yeah, this is supposed to be a real eye-opener. Did you see Bowling for Columbine? I thought that was good myself.

    In before the lock.

    Not to be political, but I personally would not trust everything that Michael Moore says. And I'm not saying this because I oppose his views, but because he has been known to fabricate and exaggerate facts.

    ^ Agreed. I think that everyone should make their own conclusions regardless of where the information comes from. But yeah, I guess this is too close to political to be appropriate here.

  8. In before the close.

    Also, doa search next time.

    Micheal Moore is a very good documenter, and he as usually will raise some eye-opening facts and bring more truths and realities to the American public that does not know the whole thing.

    Should be an interesting film/documentary.

    Michael Moore unfortunately has been proven to fabricate too many "facts" interviews, etc etc ad infinitum to be taken seriously by the thinking person. He has been denounced by people from all corners of the political spectrum and for good reason. He's a liar.

    You can say whatever you want about "footage" there are many things that can be implied with the right editing, and that's basically how he makes his movies and "proves" his points. If you believe what you are seeing in Bowling for Columbine, do a little research and you will see what a joke it actually is. Quite a shame too as it was a tragic event.

    I smell a lock coming on?

    Agreed, although I agree with alot of his views, I despise him and his way of making movies.

    This is the real problem in my opinion. He could have a valid viewpoint on something (though I generally disagree with everything he has to say in recent memory), but it's the way he makes it that just totally negates any effect he might otherwise have. Why does he make films this way? He often will not respond to inquiry's regarding his facts, and the ones I have seen him respond to he admits he made it up and then follows it up with the explanation of "my films are made for entertainment and nothing else" or something similar to that.

    I think having whatever viewpoint is fine, but it should be able to be backed up with real data, real results, or real facts. I really think he does more to hurt the cause of liberals or people that agree with his viewpoint, than to help. I mean, how can anyone turn a blind eye to what goes on in his films? I really don't get it.

    Just because you say:

    "Not trying to be political"

    or

    "Politics asside"

    or something along those lines doesnt mean your post isnt political.

    Dont make political post here if you know its against the rules, and dont try hide behind a phrase like that if you are going to totally negate it with your next sentence.

    Its like saying. "No offense but you are the ugliest, stupidest person Ive ever seen." Its obviously offensive no matter what you say.
