Michael Moore up for Best Picture ?!?!?

Well, full page ads have been taken out by Michael Moron saying that his film doesn't qualify as a documentary, but is still eligible for a Best Picture vote. When is some slave girl gunna' do the Universe a favor and wrap her chain around his neck and do a Jabba The Hutt on this guy?? Just FYI... here is my review as posted on the Internet Movie Database (

The vulture strikes again, 15 October 2004 Author: Charles (charleskingep) from Denver, CO USA

Michael Moore is the quintessential vulture... He flew into Flint Michigan, made gobs of money off of the pain and suffering of its inhabitants and flew back to Hollywood, not giving a cent to the individuals who's suffering made him millions. He then flew into Columbine High School and picked a few million from the flesh of a dozen dead children and flew back to Hollywood, not giving a dime to the victims that fed his appetite for glory, money, and fame.

How could he not resist the 3,000 corpses at the World Trade Center, Pentagon, and Pennsylvania? FAHRENHEIT 9/11 is his latest buffet of pain, suffering, and self-aggrandizing glory. As a documentary, it fails in its basic need to be truthful, accurate and honest (as clearly shown in the response film FahrenHYPE 9/11 and the upcoming Celsius 41.11). Fahrenheit 9/11 is inaccurate, dishonest, and intentionally misleading so a reviewer is left only to comment on the "artistic" merit.

As far as "documentary" feel, Mr. Moore has fallen a great distance from his much more intriguing "Roger and Me" and "Bowling for Columbine." Although all his films seem to have a message he is Hell-bent on shoving down your throat, this film flowed much less evenly than his previous films, and leaves the viewer with the feeling they have just sat through a college lecture rather than a seductive or persuading film. The audience is given absolutely NO room to form their own conclusions; the conclusions are spoon-fed and therefore lack the intrigue I value in documentaries.

With Fahrenheit 9/11, Michael Moore has proudly stepped from the position of documentarian to that of propagandist, and if you are in search of a TRUE documentary, this film leaves you feeling dirty and cheated. I suggest "7 Days in September" for a TRUE documentary on the horrific events of September 11th, 2001

PS... Sorry I haven't posted in awhile, as with all singers and entertainers, November and December are hellaciously busy!
