    I'm wondering how many people will judge the quality of the movie on the political stance it takes. I'd love to know how often that happens. That probably deserves a thread of its own, except that people would likely be unaware of or reluctant to admit that they do this.

    I'll go with one requirement - that the protagonist finaly admits his error and commits suicide. : p

    I'd go and see it if they'd put Beavis and Butthead in it... until they do that, no way.

    It doesn't only happen with Republicans. I don't think it's Republicans that make Holocaust movies and antiwar movies prima facie Oscar contenders.

    I enjoyed all of them. Well, "Born on the Fourth of July" was only marginally noteworthy for me. I don't even remember why.

    I saw an ad run a few times for "W" and at first I thought "it looks like another slapstick 'Jim Carrey-like' vehicle " ( except without Jim ) and so I had ruled it out for theater fare.... until I noticed it was an Oliver Stone movie. Hmmm. I had thought his next movie was going to be a documentary about Chavez negotiating with the Columbian rebel kidnappers. I might check "W" out as a freebie in one of those multiple theater hallways.

    I had thought that "Burn Before Reading" ads showed like that kind of a "zany" comedy too, but I decided to go anyway, only because it was a Coen Brothers movie; and that proved to be a worthwhile decision. It was nowhere near as good as "The Big Lebowski", but still funny. My friend Geoff and I both like the Coen Brothers flicks and so we often go see them together, although he won't ever join me afterward in seeing free movies. Although we both enjoy so-called "black humor", we still have different tastes. He thinks "Fargo" was way better than "Lebowski", but I don't agree at all. He really liked "Summer of Sam". ( I wonder what this new Spike Lee movie will be like. )
