Well I guess it was only a matter of time, but Michael Moore has a new movie coming out this October on....wait for it.....the economy.

I personally am a fan of his. Some say he is very one-sided in his ranting. But the information he does present, in my mind anyway, is still pretty compelling.

I also hate to say this but I think it maybe only a matter of time before we read a headline stating "Famous film maker's brakes fail and send him over ravine."

He seems to tread in some dangerous waters. Anyway, he's a quick summary and a little trailer to boot.

Enjoy!




Plot Summary: The as-yet-untitled film will explore the root causes of the global economic meltdown and take a comical look at the corporate and political shenanigans that culminated in what Moore has described as "the biggest robbery in the history of this country" – the massive transfer of U.S. taxpayer money to private financial institutions.

I'm not a fan of his. it's like he never really digs deep to uncover the real story, he just kind of skims the surface but wont say what is really going on. is this film really going to expose the FED? and the Bilderbergs and the Rothschilds?

it will probably end with him saying there are corrupt people in the banking industry and the government aids in helping them... but Obama has changed blah blah blah

he also contradicts himself at times, and says one thing and ends up doing another.

His previous films have been debunked to hell and back, why would anyone put any credence in a new one?

Personally, I can hardly wait to see how the right attempts to slag Moore without actually speaking in favour of the screwing Wall Street handed every man-jack of us. One can at least speak against Universal Health Care on a purely constitutional level..a stagnant constitution, but you know what I mean...

Should be fun...

I hear what your saying. But still there is some truth to the information he shares. Not all of it is tripe.

I too would like to see his take on the "Families". That would make for a good movie. We already know what the problems are. Who is causing them?

IMO Michael Moore is like a washed out Alex Jones. They both have the same schtick.

They both present compelling information, that is over-sensationalized in order to garner more views and more fan base.

I am not saying they are wrong and present mis-information, but as the above poster said, their conclusions are usually built out of very vague ties and personnal opinion.

I will watch it, cause I love to watch documentaries, but all with a grain of salt as usual.

No they haven't been. If you have really checked, almost all the debunking was false and twists of what he was saying or just flat out irrelevant. Things like Michael Moore said Bush had a blue suit on that day and Bush changed to a brown suit after 5pm so MM is an idiot. That's the best they could do. I speak of his earlier films, up to and including F911. I haven't verified Sicko. Roger and me, Bowling for Columbine, and F911 were truthfull. The rabid right couldn't take it so they pulled a "dixie-chick", Clark type character assasination on MM. I won't say he didn't make any mistakes but most of what his movies say is factual.

Moore's a talented story teller. Few can make a documentary interesting imo. He's also long winded. Bowling for Columbine was a peach. 9/11? I got all I needed from that film in the first 20 minutes, the rest was irrelevant. I haven't seen Sicko. I might see this one. I might not.

I'm sure the barbs will flow fast and furious against him here though.

Sicko was good, probably the best one he's done yet (I haven't seen Roger and Me). It's as long winded as the rest of them, and yes he does get the point across in the first couple of minutes. But its by far the most balanced, non political-ranty documentary he's done. It would be hard to watch Sicko and not want some sort of change in our health system.

Looking forward to the new movie, but I always take everything Moore does with a few grains of salt. To me he comes across as having good intentions, but he also has an enormous political axe to grind, and that can detract from his messages.

Actually, if you haven't seen "Michael Moore hates America" go see it - It's great!
It uses the same methods as Moore uses in his documentaries, but this time HE's the target

michael moore is a champion for all those who want another perspective on things without having to do all the research themselves. There isn't a journalist, news agency or documantary film maker anywhere than can tell the whole story about anything. Moore does what a journalist does.. he reasearches and draws lines between suspicion facts or conjectures. He's obviously biased and speaks to his fan base, all do and anyone suggesting otherise is naive as to how the "machine" really operates. This next film, will expose the corruption of wall st. that many believe exists but have little information to back it up. I've seen all his films and discovered him shortly after Roger and Me hit the video stores way back when... don't dismiss his hard work and most of all his courage for getting into the lion's den and prodding those cats with sticks... it's easy for people to 'slag" his work while typing comfortably from home or office with an avitar and fake name but i challenge his descenters to make comment in public against a fraction of those who he shines the light on... that is of course if you're not completely caught up believing that banks and governments only have your best interests at heart... *cue rolling eyes*

I heard Michael Moore the other day, preaching of how great Obama is, that obama is OMG the lord and saviour, that we must all pray to him, and chop off our legs under the knee cap in sacrifice to him......I threw up a little.


Yet he seems in the commerical, really upset about the bailouts, well who was the driving force behind the bailouts.......Obama.....

You know I have heard the same from him and am shocked. Why would somebody like Michael Moore think Obama is Jesus. It kinda has me thinking his isn't what he says he is. Nothing against Obama, I think he went in there with good intentions to find out he is but another puppet, but to worship the guy is down right wacky.

Perhaps Michael should have a quick look-see at The Obama Deception. Not to say that that holds any real truth either. But it's his type of movie.

The following is my opinion as a member participating in this discussion.



Is it necessary to discuss a topic in this manner? If you have no respect for the man at least have some for your fellow members and the board. That childishness isn't required.

As an ATS Staff Member, I will not moderate in threads such as this where I have participated as a member.

To embed a youtube video you just need the bit after the = so instead of

You just need Icb_tRTnA4g

When you're typing a reply...there is a youtube video "box" along the top of options... hit that and post the bit after the = sign in that....it should do this

Yes, you got me there. Here's what the trivia section of imdb.com says with regard to Roger and Me:


This is the only movie where there has been a successful lawsuit against Michael Moore - filed by former friend Larry Stecco who successfully argued that his portrayal in the movie was not an accurate reflection of his character ("False light invasion of privacy" is the legal term) and won. Stecco was interviewed attending a society fund raising ball and was made out to be a high-society rich pig who partied while people where starving outside. He was actually a lawyer who worked pro-bono for the poorer residents of Flint.


You'll excuse me if I don't rank this as a stinging incitement of his stance against...oh, the American health care system, for instance. Thank you for providing the exception that proves the rule.
