The movie opens today. Does anyone find it a complete laugh that so much is centered around how aweful this movie is? I was reading the Boston Globe where Margarie Eagon (?) wrote a near page length critique on the movie. Andy Rooney spent his usual fifteen minuets of nonsense discussing the mental illness apparent of Mel Gibson. It is discussed on The O'Reilly Factor on Fox. It is discussed front page on every newspaper and newstation. It it the hot topic on the internet when I sign on. So everyone, mostly anyway, is trying to tell everyone else not to see the picture and then follows with a list of reasons not to see it. Meanwhile they are spending their last breath, last inch of paper to ensure their point is across to the public, not to see this movie. The public now cannot get to the ticket booths fast enough to watch what all the fuss is about. Mel Gibson has probibly, as we speak, has earned more money than anyone could imagine before the movie was actually released, to pre sold tickets. He has spend little if no money at all on advertising and it must be destroying his competition in the theatre. So one has to ask if the movie is so aweful then why spend so much time discussing it? There are many God aweful movies out there that can cause a stir with the public in one form or another but few people will pay any mind to it. If the movie is that bad then state your opinon and move on. However this is not the case and how laughable it is that such people who are trying to turn the public away are doing the movie a favour. I for one will see the movie. If not for what it is about than certainly for what the stir is about. I find a movie that causes people to discuss it on every channel, every newspaper - it must offer something! Mel holds the puppet strings in this case. More power to him.
