    I think it will be entertaining and an OK movie. I don't think anyone expects it to be 100% accurate but I do think it will be very realistic if that distinction makes sense.

    Nope. Partially because I don't trust a liberal director and a liberal actor to accurately portray a conservative president, and partially because I'm done wasting time on Bush. And I don't like Oliver Stone. So it's pretty much lose-lose for me.

    Wouldn't watch it if it were the only thing on TV for the rest of my life.

    I'll wait for the disc, because its hard to get out and I've got a new entertainment system. I like Stone's movies, like any Hollywood production, you can't take everything as fact. Tho, I think he two movies that came fairly close were Wallstreet and Platoon.

    A MUST see for me! I go to the movies about 25 times/yr...I love it. Oliver Stone is tough to turn down.

    Stone makes great looking films. Can't argue with that.

    Even after Alexander? I think Stone is so overrated.

    it will get a similar reaction from the Reich to what Fahrenheit got ...

    99 scenes won't be debated because the public record verifies the premise, but the one scene that they can spin as "made up" will be all they'll focus on... it's what Con men do when their heroes are exposed...

    Yeah that and World Trade Center sucked. I like pretty much all of his other movies though. Even JFK which I think is a load of nonsense.

    Platoon and Wallstreet are the two best by far. Natural Born Killers a close second.

    if there is a tie for first, by logic there is no 2nd... i'm afraid Killers would have to be third... :D

    I hear he makes Bush into a tragic hero. One that screws up but you feel bad for him...we'll see.

    i wonder if Stone will touch his Air National Guard "time"... or the fact that he bilked Texas taxpayers to finance Arlington Stadium, then quickly sold it for a nice hefty profit...

    rotten to the core...

    His Nixon biopic was absolutely brilliant. I was in tears by the end of it.

    Okay not to beat a dead horse, but if 2 films are the best by far, and another one is second (as amended to third,) how can it be a close second (third)?

    Dude you're quayling on us :D
