Note: I am not a Democrat or Republican, I hate politics but realize that it is the way this country works, I am not expressing any views what-so-ever in any of the following topics. If you are a strong left, right, center, whatever, keep your opinions to yourself because I do not want this thread to turn into a huge battle, I merely want to inform everyone of this film. Thanks.
Hopefully all of you have heard about this documentary which is set to hit theaters nationwide this Friday, the 25th of June 2004. If you have ever seen Bowling for Columbine you will know what you are in for. If you haven't I suggest to go rent it.
Yes this is an anti-war movie, yes it is anti - Bush, and yes, it is all based on fact (this issue has been brought up in such publications as Newsweek, in which their claims were all refuted with documented research from the government). I'm not going to be the one to defend this movie; yes I am glad someone is finally stepping up with the balls to speak out on issues that have been brushed under the rug on a topic that is very close to the public's "heart" but everyone is entitled to their own opinions. However, I think it is important for everyone who considers themselves to be an "American" to see this film, and especially if you are an American with an opinion. If you are an individual who is anti-bush/war you will obviously be pleasantly entertained and outraged. If you are a pro-bush/war activist, yes you will be unpleasantly entertained and outraged. If you are a fence sitter, well, maybe this will throw you over to one side or another. Either way, it is better to have an informed opinion than an uninformed one.
To be a hipocrit... It is MY opinion that the majority of the American Public (including myself) is in the dark regarding 90% of "what goes on" with this government. I feel that anyone who has ever complained about the government should do more than complain, they should get informed. We all ride motorcycles (or would like to, or have at one point), and therefore we all realize (or I should hope we realize) the importance of informed decision making. I can guarentee you that you will not walk away from that theatre unmoved... what you do after you leave is up to you. Do everyone a favor, go see it... thank yourself (or hate yourself) later.
