Default Fahrenheit 9-11 anyone?

Was just curious if anyone had seen this movie, or had any reviews of it to give?

Thought the topic belonged in this section due to the nature of Michael Moore, and the many politcal arguements I've seen on this board.

Oh, look at what you did, Hudson. You've created a thread that will undoubtedly spark an incediary debate that will linger on for months, knowing this forum. Eh, by now I'm used to it.

As for the movie, I have seen it. While Moore does put forth some strong facts, his movie only documents his side of the story, the side that helps his case. It had a powerful impact, quite a few good parts to it, I admit, but I'm not taking what he's presented to heart so quickly, as he probably omitted some topics just as potent which defy his.

His look at the war in Iraq, though, was intriquing. What the hell are we doing over there, anyhow?

I plan to see it, just as soon as I muster up the courage to watch a documentary in a theater. I liked Bowling for Columbine and his books, and I'll probably like this too.

Well I've never really kept up with MM, himself. But from what I've heard, people are already over his movie, claiming that it's full of lies (much like Bowling for Columbine [what were the lies in that movie, anyhow?]) and is just anti-American propaganda.

But those that aren't so militant in their beliefs found it to be extremely entertaining and funny, albeit far-fetched. I won't go into the movie looking for insight into American politics, rather a good laugh. I would be interested, however, to read many rebuttle arguements generated toward the 'facts' in the movie.

He's not anti-American, he's anti-Bush, and this movie tries to illustrate his point, and make everyone else anti-Bush. Well, I don't need any help with that. Bush needs to leave office, even if it means Kerry the Weasel has to take his place. Bush is in that office now because of his daddy, and I don't want someone to be in the Oval Office just because of his heritage. Monarchy didn't work out well under it, let's not start it with democracy, now.

I value my self-respect too highly to ever willingly subject myself to a Michael Moore shlockumentary. If I wanted to watch bullshit I could rub it in my eyes for free.

I would see it , But only for the entertainment factor, because Moore is funny!Bowling For Columbine was sopposed to make us hate violence but instead Moore did it in such a sick sarcastic way it was funny to see people get executed in his little clips because the music was just so silly.

The Part about Bush giving permission for Khalif Bin ladin(?) to leave the country when no plane could even fly in the sky ,Many of the victims families were stuck in flight themselves stranded either in canada some backwater in the states.Why does the Brother of the man responsible get such special treatment while so many sufferd?Osama's brother could have been a suspect the fact is nobody likes under the table deals and cover ups and we dont know if the Bin Ladins still are helping Osama?The Saudis are Vermon , Look crown prince Abdullah blaimed 9/11 and the terrorism on the Jews and isrealis and the prince is a family freind of the Bushs.

I hope Ryan you will see this movie , Even if just to critize it,It probaily is a entertaining funny movie like Columbine was.

He's right Ryan, it's at least worth a watch. Even if you don't agree with him, he makes an entertaining movie at the least.

Those commercials are the only funny commercials I've seen in a long time...

Anyway, I make it a point not to watch a frickin' documentary in a theater. I don't see the point. WHY exactly do I want to see that blown up on a giant screen in super ultra sound, exactly? Seems a waste to me to see a movie that isn't meant to actually drag you into a compelling story, and doesn't even make use of that technology in a theater. I'll watch it where the technology sucks, my TV, as this movie is SUPPOSED to be watched. Besides that, this isn't something to watch in the company of strangers, because there's actual opinions here and I might suddenly get embarressed for even being there at certain points.

Does the Terminal or Dodge ball actually make use of the theatres abilities?


Not all of Moore points are anti Bush,He critized the senate for not reading bills before passing them.Apparently only 15 minutes of the movie are about Bush specificaly alot of the rest critizes corporate america and alot of the morons.

I saw this movie on Monday. Theater was full for that show, the next show... every show that weekend was sold out, I think. Between how much people were looking forward to it and the fact that only three theaters are showing it in this state, the one in town showing it is pretty popular now...

It's a very well done documentary. (DJ, it's "supposed" to be watched in a theater. That's why it's there... ) He puts together a good case, and presents it really well... the music choices always go PERFECTLY with what is being shown on the screen. Yes, he only presents one side of the story. Yes, there are a few places where you could accuse him of leaving out part of the story. Want examples? The ones I can think of... -United Defence -- they have definitely benifited from this administration, but they did have their Crusader artillery system cancelled... -the Bin Ladens -- still not sure when they actually left. Could have been on the 14th when some civilian travel started that they actually left... there was a flight on the 13th but some reports have it not leaving the country. The point about not questioning them certainly stands though. -Ashcroft. It isn't precisely true that they were voting for a dead guy; they knew that someone would be appointed in the seat and they knew that that someone would be the dead guy(Carnahan, right?)'s wife. But all documentaries have small issues like that, and it's a lot funnier to think of people voting for a dead guy over John Ashcroft...

ASM, it is impossible for Congress to read all the bills put before it. No congress does anywhere in the world. The bills are far too long and there are far too many of them for it to be even remotely possible... you cannot expect all the bills to be fully read. Especially not a security law called the "USA PATRIOT Act" put before congress days after 9/11.

Oh yeah, the movie made more in its opening weekend -- 23 million -- than any documentary had ever made in its whole run. Previoius best: Bowling for Colombine, 21 million.

I searched every local movie theatre webpage to find the movie , But not even Ottawa has Fahreheit 9/11.Bowling for Columbine was halirious maybe not the most factual or accurate movie but definently amusing. He did have alot of excellent points, He never bashes the little guy just the big dumb rich guy,But guess now all those books and movies must make Micheal Moore a dumb Rich fat white man.I think Fahrenheit 9/11 is doing great for the same reason passion of the Christ did, All that Contriversy is free advertisement.

Sure not all bills can be followed and read, But its no excuss, We cant have the bill makers have so much power to abuse. The patriot act is a important bill that should not have been taken lightly.

But with a name like that, in a time like that, and with such a short timespan to consider a huge bill, I don't blame them for passing it without reading it. It was a setup by the administration and one that I don't think many people could have dodged... the 99-1 vote in the Senate proves that point beyond question.

ASM, I just talked to my cousing and he saw the movie, in Ottawa, it was at one of the alternative theaters though, not a big chain

I want to see the movie, and I probably will when I get the chance. I think it's funny that such a big deal was made of this movie, now because all those Republicans put up such a fuss more people will see the movie. Before it probably would have just been liberals who were already going to vote against Bush and pretty much agreed with moore. BUt now other people will be seeing the movie too and Moore may even manage to convert some people.

I liked how Moore came up here during our election campaign and warned people not to vote for the conservatives, he said it would make him look bad because he's always talking about how Canada is smarter than the US and if we turned around and elected someone who was like Bush as Prime Minister we'd make him look stupid

I still won't see it. There are many movies I do want to see but never have the time or money to enjoy. I would not waste an iota of either to see yet another propaganda parade this tubby, anti-American baconfuck unleashes.

All right, but I still say you're missing out, and maybe being just a tad closed-minded to dismiss what he has to say just because he's Michael Moore and he points out that our president is a bad leader. That's all. Not that we didn't already know that.

But hey, do what you like.

I live in Gatineau , The only Major movie theatres are famous players with the colosus and silver city chains.It waisnt at ours, So I checked Ottawa and it waisnt there either.Were did he go?

I will probaily will see it on dvd ,Since King Arthur looks great especially with Keira knightly.

Welty should see it on DVD if he wont see it now,Although it will probaily be after the election which destroys the point.

ASM, I'd expect it to be in art house movie theaters -- not major chains, but small theaters that show documentaries, foreign films, etc. In this state for instance the three places showing it are all not chains, but small theaters that show limited-run films...

And yes, Weltall should see it sometime. Oh, sure, he'll disagree with everything, but it should be seen if just for its great presentation and humor...

This movie was playing at Cineplex Odeon, the largest theatre in Edmonton and one of the largest in Canada.

Weltall-Moore isn't anti-American, he's anti-Bush. What does being anti-American have to do with anything, anyways?

Yeah, the movie is quite sympathetic to poor people... one of his main points is that poor people are what make up our army and what they deserve is not to be sent to war without a really good reason. This is not that.

... oh wait, Weltall doesn't agree with that, he doesn't care about poor people and thinks they deserve everything they get...

Oh yes, Michael Moore, a shameless multi-millionaire, has any moral basis on which to preach about the plight of the poor. Right. He cares so much, in between counting his stacks of money and his bi-annual groomings.

I hate limousine liberals. Why doesn't Baconfuck, instead of wasting millions making his subversive propaganda, donate that money to the poor?

*dur*

Everyone in the military today is a volunteer. Only a minute portion of them will ever see combat. It's a great opportunity for the poor, as the military basically pays your whole damn education, which they might otherwise never get. Plus, they learn much discipline, which makes achieving goals much easier. Frankly, it's a great thing.

But that again comes down to you wanting the poor to be perpetual dependents on the government, so of course you frown down on them having opportunities for advancement, you just lack the moral fiber to actually come right out and say so.

Do you know what you're saying, do you hear yourself? We're upset about the war because the poor are getting a chance to better themselves? That's the most ridiculous allegation I've ever heard. Truly, you can't believe that of anybody here.

I'm sorry, but that's just the oddest, out-of-left-field thing I've ever heard you say, and I've known you a long time. What are you talking about?

Haha, yeah man, totally. I mean, if I were a multi-millionaire as a result of the movies I tirelessly made and the books that I wrote, I'd feel real guilty about the position I'm in, because others are living in poverty.

Yeesh, it's not Michael Moore's goal to donate his hard-earned cash to those in need. He uses his money to make more films and to write more books in hopes that more people will see things the way he does. You make it sound like Moore is a bad guy for having a lot of money. Analyzing the situation that the poor are in compared to giving money to the poor are two totally different things.

That wasn't in response to anyone's opinion on the war, it was a response to ABF stating that poor people are being taken advantage of by the military, when in fact that is probably the most successful out a poor person has. Perhaps using quotes would've helped.

I don't make him out to be a bad guy for not donating every penny he has. I make him out to be a hypocrite because he spends millions of dollars making propaganda movies, and one of the themes is making the average American feel guilt and pity for the poor (which is of course, the fault of the rich), which should not be preached by a big, morbidly obese, and filthy rich white man who lives in a luxurious multi-million dollar apartment in Manhattan.

There's nothing wrong with making movies and living in lucury... unless one of the major reasons you make movies and live in luxury is to demonize others who do.

As for these other theatres Ive only lived in my
city for less then a year now , Its huge and Ottawa is even bigger with ,I dont know were these threatres are located and I dont feel like chasing across literaly two major cities to find it,I always went to the closest movie threatre to me.

But I will have a look at were Neo's freind went.Its possible the movie isnt showed everyday.

I thought Cineplex went bankrupt? I guess not, All the cineplex threatres here closed down.

Fahrenheit 9/11 was a propaganda movie, But Bowling for Columbine and Rodger and me were very neutral movies.He was not judging anyone and just making people think about their lives and society. Infact Moore was very critical of president clinton in Bowling for Columbine he even suggested the violence by Teenagers was also influeinced by the politicians and the wars they were involved in.His point was that how can you blaim Marilyn Manson and video games for teen violence when the president is going out ordering bombings and covert opps missions himself?

Weltall get your head out of the sand, See Bowling for Columbine or Rodger and Me. Your opinion on Moore will change once you see he is not some schmuck left winger taking a crap on the right wing,You will see that Moore has some Moderate elements to him.

Come to me afterwards and then judge him once you see his work and not judge him by the media buzz or garbage.

I hope Micheal Moore donates atleast half of the money to charity or the poor! Maybe he planed too or already has?

Moore worked his ass off which is alot for a man that fat, Why not buy himself a nice home and car?

As for him being Fat? Maybe he should watch a documentory called supersize me. Next time why not make a movie on Fat and obesity himself!

But I will have a look at were Neo's freind went.Its possible the movie isnt showed everyday.

I thought Cineplex went bankrupt? I guess not, All the cineplex threatres here closed down.
My cousin went to one of the alternative movie theaters in Ottawa. Maybe look in the yellow pages and find theaters that aren't major chains and call them.
It's also playing in most major theaters in Canada, since the Canadian distribution is being done by Alliance Atlantis, which owns a stake in famouse players, and is a major film distribution company, while in the US it's being distributed by a smaller group

Um, what? All the theaters here are playing it, and I think they are major chains (though I really can't tell if something is a major chain or just a really expensive local thing, because I do NOT know theater brand names, nor do I want to). Granted, in each and every one, it's just one of the screens that's playing it, but it's THERE.

Honestly, I can't see watching something like this, with political opinions, among strangers. I can't just start up a conversation with total strangers, and honestly it just feels embaressing to be in such a situation among strangers, like when someone you know suddenly gets into a huge idiotic debate with someone in public and you just want to get out of there.

As long as exaderations are kept to a minimum, I'll be seeing this too. I enjoy some of Michael Moore's political commentary, but I have to constantly remind myself to take it with a grain of salt.

Sure, there are exaggerations but not huge ones, and if I were you I'd take a whole saltshaker. His points are strong, but only half of the picture. Something appalling that he says can sometimes be put into perspective or justified with only one small detail he may conveniently omit.

I actually learned alot of things I didnt know about and reheard alot of things I already knew.

What I did learn was that the big Fox executive was Bush 1st Cousin,All the channels in the 2000 election reported that Al gore had won in florida but for some reason Fox said George Bush was winning before any recount had happend or shall we say many votes were officially disqualified by govenor Jeph Bush that imediately turned the election in his brothers favor.If it waisnt for the fact Bush Brother was govenor of florida and his decision effected the election you wouldnt have this kind of suspicion and contriversy or atleast not as much.

Bush early presidency was in the hole till 9/11, His car was egged and had shit tossed at it when they were heading for his inaguration ceremony, He was sopposed to march to the white house on foot as part of the traditional inaguration but it was called off for safety concerns since the place was surounded by angry pissed protesters upset about the election fiasco.

I do think one thing, the title makes no sense... at all. If I see it, they better not play some song no one has EVER heard before talking about temperature.
