KEEP IT ON THE BROWNLOWE:: W

I had high hopes for Oliver Stone’s film about the Bush Administration, W. I was really hoping for some laughs in the face of the infamous administration whom has destroyed America’s reputation.

Instead, all I got was an extremely loooooooong and equally boooooooring movie. As far as comedy goes, Bush himself has more comedic one liners than this entire movie!

Do some research Stone!

Most of the movie focused on Bush’s younger years, portrayed as spoiled, whiny fuck-up who has daddy issues. Oh so sad but not enough to make up for his sportsman mentality where winning must be achieved at any cost.

W tells its audience a teeny bit about current history but if you know a smidge about how effed the real administration is this won’t be new to you.

Instead, I would recommend skipping W in the theater and renting excellent Frontline Documentary, Bush’s War

    I guess my lingering question about “W.” is

    why?

    What exactly DID Stone want to get over to people that they didn’t
    already know? Did you get any idea? It seemed like the trailer I saw
    wanted to focus on alcoholism… but one needn’t look at Bush to
    examine that at all, so I don’t get it.

    yeah, i’m not quite sure…. there was a big focus on alcoholism and also “daddy issues”. bush was constantly trying to prove to his parents that he wasn’t a fuck up… not sure if these issues have any reality behind them but yeah…a lot of the political stuff was watered down and most people probably already knew the details…however, never underestimate american ignorance! i can see how this could be an eye opener for this who know nothing about the bush admin…
