    Have yet to see a discussion on this board about the film. Mrs. Diver and myself went to see it on Saturday.

    Wondered if anyone else saw it yet, or is planning to?

    If you hate the filmmaker, and will never see this movie, please stay away from this thread.

    I know.....I know....

    Michael Moore is a liberal commie....blahblahblah....


    for those who want to see it, or have and wish to discuss it....have AT the thread.

    All I know is that Matt Drudge had a huge circle jerk on his website, that the revenues for the movie were something like 4.5 million... whatever that means.. of course they showed Moore in a flattering picture...

    With that being said, it is in my Netflix queue.. or however you spell it.

    Was Drudge also boasting that the top grossing fim of the weekend was "Zombieland"



    How appropriate.

    Not sure what he was pimping, but know who he was denigrating...

    kinda misleading #s as well...

    Weekend Box Office Results for October 2-4, 2009 - Box Office Mojo

    Capitalism opened in 962 theaters. all the other films are in 1,700 - 3,000 theaters. Well below any of the other titles and pulled in $4,623 per. good for a ranking of 4th.

    anyway....

    It might be his best movie yet. Well worth it for FDR's proposal of a 2nd bill of rights, and even crazier to see who actually got those rights, and who gave them to those nations....

    So did he address all the millions he's made through capitalism ? Is he giving it all back ?

    I want to see it. The clips of him with the money bags and wanting to make a citizens arrest seem funny. I respect the guy for trying to bring debate. He has made movies about some great topics and overall he has been mostly right. Needs to take care of himself a bit. Perhaps he could hire Oprah's chef?

    He addressed that stuf fwhen I saw him interviewed, he pays his people and has a product to sell. He isn't anti-capitalism, but really attempts to show where it all started to go out of control. When it became a deregulated destructive dragon...


    so, do you also judge books by covers, Hmmm?


    BF, I suggest you see it. He certainly spends enough time busting Chris Dodd over his hypocrisy in home loans.

    Nah, I've seen enough pieces of his other "movies" to know what's going on.

    I haven't seen it, I will. For now I'll do something real weird for a Michael Moore movie. I won't rate it yet.

    a non-starter, and typical, lazy con man obfuscation from the greater issues you all have no honest argument against.

    if he was poor, he wouldn't be able to make films, and the advocacy would never be distributed... to the joy of pro-corporate drones like yourself.

    get back to threads about perceived reverse racism. it's where you shine.

    Obviously not a fan.... From what I understand it's not getting good early reviews. Is it because you cant take the party line as effectively with this issue?

    It's getting glowing reviews from all reviewers who agree with the premise, and about half of those who don't. It currently has a 73% rating on rottentomatoes.com.

    In other words, 73% of all reviews available have been positive.

    Of course, the typical pro-establishment reviewers ripped it. The same kinds of people who still insist Iraq was about "freeing the Iraqi people" and nothing more.

    interesting percentage to say the least....73....


    hmmmmmm.....


    sounds like the same percentage of people who want a public option at least.


    sounds like the 25(ish) percent of tea-bagging-deather-birther-beckers

    Thanks for the enlightenment, I'm surpised the news outlets I watch or the things I read aren't painting it as such a success. What a surprise.

    Even if you hate Moore, you have to respect the cojones required to go down to Wall Street with a bullhorn and crime scene tape and start trying to arrest stockbrokers.

    Haven't seen it (yet) but what I heard that was interesting was that he started making this movie 3 years BEFORE the financial crisis last year.

    I think that's the story our gov't has been trying to sell, but I don't think many americans are buying it. Who can honestly believe that "Iraq = Oil" wasn't the reason?
