Even though its an old movie.......

People should really watch or re-watch Bowling For Columbine. Holy smokes. I forgot what a frickin' great movie/documentary that was. A must see or re-see for sure!

It is Michael Moore though, so you aren't getting the whole story, guaranteed. Plus, there are some things in that one that are confirmed wrong, or which he embellished on to fit his political perspective. He isn't a real documentarian. No flames if you disagree with me, please, as this can step close to the political affiliation/beliefs category, which can be quite virulent on a message board.

EDIT:
Not that it is COMPLETELY innacurate, he makes some good points and highlights some important issues. Just check your facts first.

How weird, I just rented it this weekend! How ironic is that? This weekend was the first time I'd ever seen the film and I thought it was excellent... Trevor and I even discussed moving to Canada because of the low crime rate....

What are you, psychic?!?! =)

Jeff, you seem to be dialed into everyone's psychie recently, as I was watching it for maybe a fourth time last night of the TMN channels on Cable at like 2 a.m.

TexasAggie04, when in life DO you get the whole story? From the media? I don't think so. From the government? I don't think so.

All we ever get in life is ONE person's side of things... only the side they want us to get.

JEFF:

Yup I saw that movie a few months back after I was told to check it out from a few friends. Weird on so many things. I watch all of Micheal Moores with an open mind, not so much in total belief but with an educated guess what is more real than not. Like Tim said what is the truth from media and government. But still pretty scary with out southern neighbors.

Get a rifle when opening a bank account, wow.........I only got a pen and the daily crappy interest they kindly give you.....lol. And how many Canadians actually leave there doors open all the time, geez I remember those days back in the 70s, these days come on!

Over all the movie was a good eye opener, check out Fahrenheit 911 that will blow you away.

Cya...

Tony

Absolutely INCREDIBLE mind-blowing movie. The way I see it is this: at least Mr. Moore presents the side that the right wing media absolutely refuses to show you. For sure, he's a propagandist, but at least he dares to show ow STUPID politicans and absolute A$$HOLES like Charlton Heston are.

No kidding Ken. Even if you fall in the middle, its a far far different picture than what the US government is painting.
