    I already knew I wasn't going to see W, but there's a line from a local review of the film that distinguishes it as the most worthless movie review ever.
    "If it [the film] feels empty, that's because it's supposed to reflect the man's soul."
    I don't wanna!

    It's bland. The acting sucks, too.

    I only saw the movie because a friend wanted to and I wanted to spend time with her.
    Otherwise, it was pretty much a barely average movie released at the wrong time.

    Pretty much did not say anything we didn't already know.
    No big surprises.
    Not enough digging into Bush's faith compared to his addiction issues and what aspects of his personality might have lead him in both areas.

    Broslin channeled Bush very well. But not much insight into the person.
    A few of the actors channeled their targets well too (Cheney, for example, was a good depiction).
    Whoever played Rice belonged on "MAD TV" with her sniveling snarky deliveries, it ruined the tone of the movie.

    Most haunting scene (well, besides Bush's interactions with his dad, I felt a bit bad for him): The last one, where he goes back to the catch the ball... and realizes he's standing in an empty field. No one is paying attention anymore. No one cares. He's obsolete.

    Which, actually, is the sad reality now.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    So...what kind of story does it tell? Pretty much a historical narrative? Because I love those.

    Anywho. The movie was worthwhile in that I no longer feel animosity towards George, but feel rather sorry for the poor guy. This is assuming everything in the movie is accurate, which I'm sure it's not.

    I put monkey brain because it's humorous. I will not see the film.

    His has some screenwriting skills, I'll give him that (Conan, Scarface).

    But yeah, his directing is... overrated I'd say.

    I'd say his directing is underrated, if anything. His filmmaking skills are undermined by his cavalier attitude toward authenticity. But his raw filmmaking skills are astounding.
