I am just curious if any Wabbers plan on seeing the new Oliver Stone movie on President Bush. I personally don't like Stone's politics, and his somewhat stilted view on history. Stylistically also I find his movies uneven, so I may skip it.

I for one will view it, while I agree Stone can be disjointed at times, he puts a lot of effort in .........a movie is never as good as the books on given subjects

After seeing Alexander I have to say, I don't think I could, even if I wanted to :))!

hehe,

Troy, on the other hand, was a gem of a movie; watched it 4 times already.

Oliver Stone is an a--hole, he should have been charged with sedition a long, long time ago and sentenced to a very, very long time in prison.

I despise him and all his slanderous borderline propaganda movies.

Let me guess the plot...how Bush bombed the world trade centre and started a world Crusade to get rich from oil. I'll read a book thanks.

Could be one of the worst films ever made...

Exactly...."yawn"....
I would sooner pound a nail in my thigh...rather than see it

JFK was the only movie I have every walked out of. Wasn't that an Oliver Stone movie? I don't think I made it half an hour into it... I thought it was ridiculous. Think I'll pass on this one.

Got back from watching W., excellent movie indeed. Worth watching whether you love him or hate him, seriously. I don't think the movie could've been made better in any way -was hillarious and serious
