*Bowling For Columbine

  1. OK, maybe theres another thread about this.
    I saw it last night, its fresh as fuck, the direction and the editing is smart and in my opinion it hits the nail hard without being cheap. That dude has a great sense of humour and also proves he has the balls to actually backup what he sais. That film revealed to me things about america and gladly summed up a lot of my thoughts about your politics...I remember Kabar speaking highly of the NRA, i would really want to hear what he has to say about the film. Charlton Heston has the IQ of a square wheel, Canada is awesome or it appears to be so. And i wouldnt want to believe that Americans are like this but it appears that the majority is...

    btw, "Its a wonderfull world" by the Ramones sounds dope

    i saw it a bit back...
    its pretty good, but..IMO sometimes michael moore has a bad
    habit of coming off like he's giving you the inside
    scoop while glassing over the 'other side' of the story.
    he also leaves things up to the audience that i'm not
    sure should be left to them...example: in the film
    he talks about how many deaths by guns happen
    in a bunch of countries. he starts out with a few
    and you're just waiting for the US numbers, and then
    BOOM, there's the US figure, absurdly high. what he
    fails to mention is that the US population is much
    larger than most of the comparitive countries'
    populations. its an effective but misleading way of
    presenting a chunk of the whole. other than that i think he's pretty
    bang on with most of it. charlton heston is a scumbag
    and hopefully everyone that sees it will see him for what
    he is. i thought the stuff about him throwing gun rallies
    right after two massive tragedies was the lowest and even
    disgusting that he claims he had no knowledge of these events
    even happening.
    i think deep down he knew it was low.
    and throughout
    the movie i was really hoping he would shave that
    grotesquely sorry excuse of a beard off.
  7. I remember the numbers preety much and i have the impression that you can add all european countries and canada's population and still have significant smaller numbers...but in anyway i think its a detail that you speak off, in my opinion his data seem fair and well rounded to me...i'm not american so i might be missing stuff but i didnt have the feeling i'm being misleaded

    i mention that becuz, first, when i was watching it occured
    to me that he was not stating this, and secondly, after we
    left the theatre a group of adults behind us mentioned the
    figures but not the population difference. plus its a fairly
    large point in the movie, which is 'americans have a massively
    large gun death rate compared to every other civilized country'.
    even if its apparent to most, you shouldn't glass over that
    kind of stuff.

    yall are funny....

    bottom line, the world is not going to be a safer place if guns are banned....

    think about it, if the police and army have all the firepower, whos going to keep them in check?? if guns are banned, only criminals can have guns....we cant keep drugs or illegal aliens out of our country, how are we going to keep guns out??

    conceal carry permits are a blessing........
  10. Brown, i kinda lost you there...dictionary help...'glass'?

    Choser..i dunno man, as not being american i dont really feel valid enough to speak...point is that in europe for example we aint got guns, the police does...there are other ways of 'checking'. Criminals have guns in europe but not many either...One thing i can say for sure:

    When guns are banned its harder to find them, top notch criminals may have so, but top notch criminals dont use them as a crackhead or an angry retarded teenager does. People here get stabbed and beaten, there is violence everywhere. But less guns=less deaths its to easy to kill.

    In the end i think its a matter of different culture, how you deal with things
