    Films seen:


    Fahrenheit 9/11 [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Bowling for Columbine [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]
    Canadian Bacon [​IMG] [​IMG] (funny premise, but it's just flat)
    Roger & Me [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]


    While his questionable tactics lose him points, Moore's films are generally entertaining in and of themselves.

    I've seen F911 and Roger & Me.

    I don't like either of them in the "want to buy the dvd and watch again" sense, though both were excellent and F911 in particular was exceedingly informative. So much so that I find it too painful to watch again, considering current events, which is as much as I dare say here.

    While I try not to let personalities and image affect my view of films, I can't stand Moore's shabby "everyman" persona. I daresay the only tangible effect his films, TV shows and books have had is to make himself a millionaire several times over.

    Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004) - 8/10
    Bowling for Columbine (2002) - 8/10
    Roger & Me (1989) - 6/10


    While his films are deeply flawed in some ways, he manages to make them highly entertaining and provocative.
