The Randomness Continues

Thursday, June 24, 2004

Recently, the new Michael Moore documentary, Fahrenheit 9/11 has been causing some controversey. It seems like everywhere you look, you see something about this movie. Tonight he's on The Daily Show with Jon Stewart. A few weeks ago he appears during the MTV movie awards. And all this week the headlines have been talking about how he is fighting the MPAA to remove the movie's 'R' rating. Is it just me, or are other people sick of hearing about this movie?

Sure, I've heard it's really good. In fact, it recently won the Palme D'Or at the 2004 Cannes Film Festival (NOTE: Only two movies I like have won that award, The Piano and Pulp Fiction (FURTHER NOTE: Pulp Fiction director Quentin Tarantino was the president of the jury at the 2004 Cannes Film Fest). Sure, that's a big thing, but look where Cannes is held. France. Who is strongly apposed to the US government under George W Bush? Hmm. Coincedince? Probably not.

Now, as I've said before, I'm neither a Bush supporter, or a Bush hater. He has made some bad decisions for this country, but most people already know that. So why make a movie about it? Because Michael Moore feels he should take events people already know about (9/11 and Columbine), and make a movie about it. Why not do something different for a change? Instead of the normal documentary about a national tragedy, conspiracy, or scandal... why doesn't he make, say, a buddy cop movie?

There we go. Idea of the week. If Michael Moore makes a buddy cop movie, I will wear a dress. Interested in this? Send him an email at,and tell him all about it.

Okay... which one is the bride? Posted by Hello

(NOTE: My dear friend Stephen Whitty apparently liked this movie. But as we know, that man is full of shit. Want more proof: Just How Wrong Stephen Whitty Is!)

(FURTHER NOTE: It turns out Michael Moore has made mo(o)re (haha) that just documentaries in his career. It turns out, he made one of the greatest movies ever. I probably should have been aware of this, considering I've seen this movie some hundreds of times. Oh well. As great as Canadian Bacon is, a Michael Moore buddy cop movie would still be cool.)
