Watch this with an open mind. Excerpts from Obama's memoir " Dreams from my father " were used.

The director/commentator/author is Dinesh D'Souza.

Hope this thread does not get closed down.

Sorry. This isn't a movie. It's a documentary. And, it's content has nothing to do with AVS. Like the other doc, commenting on production values or PQ/AQ is fine. Surely nobody here is at a loss to find a place where they can "cough' discuss "cough" this documentary. smile.gif

Election year propaganda, designed and produced to influence voters. There are a couple of these coming out, preaching to their own choir. I'm sure they're competently produced. No thanks.

I'm sure you felt exactly the same way about Fahrenheit 9/11.

Wasn't D'Souza the guy on Bill Maher's old Politically Incorrect show that started the discussion about how, contrary to the administration's position, the 9/11 hijackers were actually brave men and not cowards, which led to ABC cancelling Maher's show?

Probably. But the show has been so much better on HBO, that he probably did him a favor.

I just wish more conservatives would take him up on his offers. Get around election season (every 2 years!?) and they becomes slim pickings, and he has to resort to the pundit blowhards.

These kinds of propaganda films and their younger sibling "the 30 second political ad" would make Joseph Goebbels proud. My comment applies to both sides of the political spectrum. A perfect case study of public opinion manipulation.

As someone who very much enjoys evaluating evidence I'm looking forward to seeing this, it has been getting some good buzz.

Watch every one of his shows for years.
I like the fact he is not a registered voter of either of the 2 major (and sh*tty) parties.


At any rate, I am all in favor of Larry locking this thread before feelings get hurt.

So how was the acting? Any cool special effects?

The special effects were totally sick, bro. This one dude effortlessly shot a laser beam out of his rectum and it looked totally convincing.

Acting was a bit stilted during the first half, but it really started to pick up after that.

It's a solid sci-fi flick overall, and I would recommend it to anyone and their brothers, sisters, nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts, uncles, mother, father, grandmothers, grandfathers and whatever dead relatives rotting in the ground.
