OK, boys and girls! Is it time to go over to http://www.amazon.com/ and rate Bowling for Columbine? It just takes a few seconds to locate the listing on the search function then another quarter minute to vote.

Right now it has four stars based on 556 customer opinions. I wonder how many stars it might have after 2000 THRers visit the site?

If you decide to write a review please keep on the high road. :rolleyes:

Bumping this thread back up to the top. Maybe it should be in the political forum?

I noticed that last night they took down the basic stars display and a couple of bad reviews crept into the list of reviews they put on the page with the DVD description. Of course they kept two of their favorite pet five star reviews on the page! :rolleyes:

I looked through the list of recent reviews and it appears some folks have gotten some good points. Also it looks like the 'average review' function is back working again. Looks like several folks brought up the point that it is a passable film for a propaganda piece, but not anything that should have won the Oscar for a documantary film.


I notice that a couple of antis have really lost their cool. One poor guy seemed almost foaming at the mouth. Some of the folks that liked the film even brought up 'soft' pro sentiment. Weird.

Guys, more and more leftists are admitting that much of the film is deceptive bunk. Moore is feeling the heat ... or maybe that's just heartburn from his last enchilada.

Don't just write a review. Take a few minutes and skim through all the other reviews and be sure to click the "yes" or "no" option under each one for whether you found the review to be helpful / informative. The positioning / influence of the reviews are weighted by this score as well.

You have to sign up to rate stuff.

Sure you have to sign up. But this is an advantage because this means that people can't vote 30 times.

More 1-star votes gentlemen! I even wrote a review, for what it's worth.

Now, if only Michael Moore were to be caught cheating on his wife with a sheep. :eek:

Couldn't comment: haven't seen the flick, and won't, and I try not to lie.

Ah, I don't know much about sheep, but doesn't that imply that you can individually identify sheep? Can you do that?

Couldn't comment: haven't seen the flick, and won't, and I try not to lie. Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

I for one tried to watch it with an open mind. It was the most illogical movie I've ever seen. My wife who leans a little anti was put off by the movie, but then again, she doesn't have a room temperature IQ, either.

God, how to say this, TechBrute; married myself, how could you even think that about your better half? And on a public forum?

Even without knowing you, her, or your situation...

And I'm serious, but, I guess, you do it your way.


As for me, I want my enemies, armed with a Kimber .45, their choice of specifics, at 200 yards, framed in a 9X on an M1A.

benewton, in Moore's case I think a 1X would suffice out to 1700 yards. :D

how could you even think that about your better half? And on a public forum? What are you talking about?:scrutiny:

Maybe you did not understand. A room temperature IQ is generally between 70 and 80. My wife was a molecular pharmacologist before we decided she was going to be a domestic engineer (housewife). Her IQ is over 170 (I married up:D) She was put off by the movie because she's too smart to be led around like the retards that seem to think that it's a documentary or that it's any sort of good entertainment.
