Hahahahahahaha! I should just lock the thread now unless people want to discuss if it should have been shot on film instead of video (I'm just guessing). smile.gif

Likewise I imagine the threads about Micheal Moore's movies do not last long, although this film doesn't look nearly as provocative in comparison.

I have a better idea.....

Let's just make documentaries OFFICIALLY not part of AVS's allowable fare and be done with it.
ANYTHING can (and usually will) be considered "political" by someone, somewhere.

Why clog up AVS's servers with locked threads?
It serves no one's interests, and simply wastes the time of those involved....

I have a lot to say about this documentary, but don't know how to express my thoughts without violating forum rules. As such, I will quote a movie that may or may not have been made and does not clearly illustrate my views on wind turbines. In other words, yet another useless post by me.

"Green is good." - Michael Douglas' character Chaz in the horticultural version of "Wall Street."


EDIT: Yes, this should have been shot on film. I pressed my face directly against the screen when watching and spotted numerous anomalies. The audio should have been presented in 10.1 surround sound.

Is this documentary one of those spoofs by The Onion? Seriously!

This Vornado fan I have next to me is way too loud and is causing massive disorientation.

Might as well lock up the fiction movies, and TV shows for that matter as well. Also music discussion. Every piece of media advocates a value consciously or unconsciously and is therefore political.
