Library had Bowling For Columbine, figured I'd finally watch the thing.

Wasn't really suprised at anything. I can't believe anyone actually paid to watch it though.

If Moore would pick a topic and stick to it, his work wouldn't be all that bad. The entire "documentary" (and I use that word loosely) was unfocused. He mentions this and that. He blames the media for creating a culture of fear. He blames Charlton Heston for a 6 year old's death. He blames K Mart for the Columbine incident. He blames the state of Michigan for that 6 year old's death.

Overall, my bias being considered, it was a piece of crap. Moore would serve himself well to go on a diet, join a gym, and learn some personal hygiene.

It wasn't as bad as I anticipated. Moore lays on the whole emotional thing pretty thick though. The last minute was pretty bad.

God forbid someone examined a problem logically. No, let's just use emotions! I understand your son died at Columbine. But is that any reason to blame guns? Perhaps you should examine the home life of the two boys who perpetrated that massacre.

Blaming guns is the easy way out.

I watched part of it and the biggest thing I took away from it was that Canadians are fucking retards.

Yes, that became quite obvious.

Moore opens my front door and he'll be staring down the barrel of a Ruger .357.

Who the fuck doesn't lock their doors? Hell, I keep my vehicles locked all of the time. And there's virtually no crime here.

Ditto, except for "bullet hole" instead of "brick".

What really sent me over the top was the stupid bitch in the bar...

"Do you lock your doors?"

"No..." (with the "I'm stupid" smile on her face)

"Has your house ever been broken into?"

"Yes, once when I was home. They just came in and stole a few things and generally vandalized the place." (still smiling)

"But you still keep your doors unlocked?"

"Oh yeah."

Talk about not learning from your mistakes.

"yeah, they came in while I was asleep and vandalized the place"

Stupid bitch deserves whatever happens to her.

I was joking.

I just wouldn't watch any MM movies. Even for the curiosity factor.
