I watched it (torrents for me, 720p) and while I liked it a lot, I feel that there are some definite problems with misinformation.
If you watch the movie you also need to go to the debunking sites about Thrive, for a full counterpoint. At that point then you'll at least have
both sides of it. I dislike the debunking site's attack on things that are presented in the movie as opinion, but I also dislike the opinions that
were in the movie stated as FACT. Opinions are opinions, and facts are facts, they should stay that way.
The movie needed to be more carefully fact-checked (for those parts that were presented as fact), and I guess according to the posters in the
debunking articles, that didn't happen. Some comments in the debunking site actually claim to be from people that were part of the movie, and that
despite their urging for various parts to be re-written for correctness, they were not. I can cite details if needed here, but a quick cursory glance
at some of the comments in the debunking site should be enough to find what I'm talking about.
My thing is, for such a ground-breaking movie, the fact-checking mission should have been top priority to nail its credibility down as STRONG, not as
it is now, which is debatable. I mean, what can you say when a grouping of the interviewees on the site all banded together and DISASSOCIATED
themselves from the movie?? That's not good!
I still loved the message, but I just wish over and over that it was presented after all the facts were checked and re-checked for provable,
verifiable evidence. I mean, he even mis-quoted Kissinger, and he mis-directed people about how a certain free energy device works. Unnecessary and
it destroys credibility! If you swing for the fences, you better be prepared for the consequences when the ball is missed.
