    What a putz. And, as the title states, that PUTZ is at it yet again, with another so-called movie.

    This time, it's titled "CAPITALISM".

    Gee, another one of his so-called "movies" I won't watch...

    I'm not much of a fan, but just as a matter of interest has any one actually ever seen any of his films?

    I hear they are popular in Venezuela, Cuba, College campuses, and California.

    i have...
    he's just like any other guy with a social perception and opinion the makes movies that reflects his views.
    i don't love or hate him.
    i think some of the stuff he does is funny.
    like when he went to n.y. after officers shot a guy mistaking his wallet for a gun and collected wallets from black people and replaced them with day glow orange ones to help keep blacks from getting shot.
    that was funny...
    i will probably watch this one and then form an opinion.
    i don't believe you can have an informed opinion of anything until you study it yourself...
    seacrest out.

    It is so strange that someone who

    plays on this or that theme without offering any real solutions can get funding for movie after movie.

    I've seen several of his movies.

    They're frustrating to watch because he often doesn't even address very credible counterpoints.

    Watch Bowling for Columbine and see how much you tell at your TV.

    He's a real piece of, uhum, work.

    Exactly what The Patriot said.

    Moore is a very talented film maker, and a fat donut-eating liar. If you were a weak-minded liberal you would probably watch the films and think they were a CNN newscast. Er... wait a minute... I'm trying to think of an impartial news source because CNN actually DOES remind me of a MM film.

    But I digress. I have watched all of his films, well I have tried... Couldn't make it through "Bowling for Columbine". He's a fact-twisting, truth-ignoring over bloated schmuck that needs a shave. He presents his (mostly) lies as a documentary rather that the (mostly) ficticious tale they are. Even the left-wing Hollyweird folks at the Oscars were having trouble with calling Fahrenheit 9/11 a documentary.

    He really does have a talent for making lies look truthful on film and in a very entertaining way. The guy is a full-fledged communist and I can't see for the life of me how he didn't land a lofty position in the Obama administration.

    no its not...its all about making money... the people that give him the money dont care what his movie is about they just know that a bunch of people will go see it and they will make money off of it.

    I don't need to stick my hand in a dung heap to know it for what it is. I will continue to avoid Mikey Moore like the plague. :irked:

    Moore and Hillary

    Wonder if the law suit against the Hillary movie will affect any of Moore's movies.

    If you watch the movie "Roger & Me" I think you can actually enjoy some of MM's stuff but it won't take long to see where he's coming from. I thought in that movie he was truly concerned for the folks in Flint, Michigan but as the movie edges on his hatred for capitalism starts to show through.

    As a rabid capitalist myself I loath anything that stands in the way of a free market economy... but as Robert McNamary so astutely stated in his movie The Fog of War, one of the lessons of life is to try and see the story from the other side and I thought Moore did a halfway fair job of that in "Roger" but the artistic license really went to his head in "Bowling".

    Now I just think he's a jackass.

    Of course there is a delicious irony about Moore's hatred of capitalism: he has to raise money for his projects and backers "buy in" in the hope/expectation they'll see a return on their investment. As for Moore himself, he's cagey enough to insist on a substantial "cut" for himself. Don't you just hate capitalism? I could be at least somewhat sympathetic were his motives at all altruistic, if he lived in a monastery under vows of piety and poverty and if he weren't so devoted to epicurean delights (c'mon, the guy's a whale on two legs).

    Well, his latest, "Capitalism" is merely his view/s, same as ALL his other movies, and his view/s of this one is, CAPITALISM IS EVIL!

    And yet he stays here and makes his money off of and via CAPITALISM this method and way he thinks is SO EVIL. He's still a PUTZ.
