Bin Laden movie over-booked

3/7/2008:

As it turns out, this movie had hundreds of people turn out for the screening before us, thus we were robbed of a seat! Bastards!

However, the disorganized and slow event staff eventually gave movie tickets out to the attendees that weren’t able to see the Morgan Spurlock film. Why not, I already spent $10 bucks on the popcorn and soda, so I chose “Vantage Point.”

Vantage Point Review: DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME OR ENERGY. HORRIBLE!

Most of you probably have seen the trailer already. The acting was bad, the plot most unbelivable, and I was left shaking my head almost the whole film. The only redeeming aspect of the movie was the laughably horrendous performance by Forrest Whitaker, who is normally a good actor. Luckily it was around 90 minutes long.

Despite what the spoiler said for the Bin Laden movie, I’ll still at least check it out on DVD.

3/6/2008:

Stop the presses, I’m taking a few hours off tonight! Anything nutty happens in Hoboken, find a place to put it, like the scanner page or something.

Got invited to a screening of Morgan Spurlock’s (Super Size Me) new movie: “Where in the world is Osama Bin Laden?” which is due in theaters on April 18th.

I’ll report back on how it was tomorrow. Anyone interested in this movie?

The trailer looks like it might be amusing, but I’m wondering if Spurlock just did this to make money with no real desire to find the fruitcake terrorist. Like what would have done if he found him? Bitch-slapped him into custody? Because if he did know where he was, and told the US Military, that place would have been carpet bombed to dust within minutes.

President Bush has already told us that he “doesn’t give Bin Laden much thought.”
Quite a different message than he gave us standing upon the rubble of the WTC for his photo op.

And, yes, I knew victims. I worked at 5 WTC.

It wasn’t going to be easy.

At least not much easier than saaayyyy… Hmmm… Finding Saddam in a hole in the ground in some out of the way, random little spot, somewhere in Iraq?

By the way, it may have taken 5 years, and a lousy $24 million but they did get Rudolph, maybe they should have given up since it was too hard.

You’re welcome.

Will someone from the Booosh-let-OBL-go camp please explain why it was such an easy task finding some guy in thousands of square miles of unmapped terrain populated with people who saw him as a hero, when it took the FBI FIVE YEARS to find Eric Rudolf when he was hiding in much better mapped and accessible western NC?

Thanks in advance!

I love quotes, you can find one to suit any situation. In fact here’s one for you MR.

“We should take care not to make the intellect our god; it has, of course, powerful muscles, but no personality.”
