    Disney may block anti-Bush film


    Hated Hollywood idiot and ultralib Michael Moore made a movie called "Farenhiet 9/11," but it will never be shown. Disney is moving to prevent its Miramax branch from playing the movie at the Cannes film festival, which will be held later this month.

    Preemptive Strike Against LIBS: This is not censorship. This is disney making a corporate decision to not be associated with a bunch of antiamerican shit. Moore is still free to show whatever he wants, wherever he wants, as long as it's in compliance with state and federal regulations.

    it's more likely to be a ploy to garner attention for it's eventual release ala 'the passion of christ'. If miramax actually doesn't release it, I will be quite surprised. Fully aware of some questionable bits in 'bowling for columbine', I still am interested in seeing what is said in farenheit and how it is said.

    Hated by some, perhaps, but so is Bush.
    My point is that it is not very accurate to call him a hated hollywood idiot. Many like him.
    Just as many like the President, and many think he's a bumbling idiot. Hated even. Hate is a pretty strong word, don't you think?

    I bet you the guy he got a liver transplant when his insurance company wouldn't (by going after the insurance company) doesn't hate Moore:rolleyes:

    I'll give you a million dollars for every dollar of sales any moore film ever does over above the sales of "Passion of the Christ" if you give me a cent for every million dollars this film falls short of "Passion of the Christ".

    Me too. Overall, I liked Coolumbine.
    I thought it was a very poignant piece about violence in our country.

    As for gun control, I don't believe in disarming Americans but I do believe in regulation.

    I don't need 16 year-olds (or anyone for that matter) running around my city with semi-automatic weapons. Homicide by firearm statistics in our country are staggering.

    And before Columbine, I can't think of a more mainstream movie on this extremely important issue.
