Proof Oliver Stone’s W. will be Fair and Balanced

12 Comments

If you were one of those doubters that didn’t believe Oliver Stone could make a fair movie about George W. Bush, then oh boy, I have just the thing to prove you wrong. Behold, the first teaser poster for “W.”, and it says it all doesn’t it? Rows and rows of text that just convinces you this thing is going to be extremely fair to Bush. I mean, heck, Stone and company didn’t even take easy potshots at our sitting Prez! Congratulations, Oliver Stone, I was wrong when I thought you were just a political hack who couldn’t see past your undying love for Fidel Castro. Boy, do I have egg on my face or what!

And oh yeah, some dude name Jesse Bradford was recently cast in the movie as Dubya’s college roommate.

    Um, you’re missing the point, dude. It’s not that Bush is a buffoon who mangles the English language, it’s that Stone et al has spent the entire year trying to convince us his portrait of Dubya will be fair. When your first OFFICIAL public salvo is about how dumb Bush is, that doesn’t exactly bode well for “fairness” in the rest of the product. Know what I mean?

    You’re really fired up! You got mean hate on for the STONE. I’ll probably get a kick outta the movie but the road looks rough for you good sir.

    And Stone is crazy. Don’t trust him. He’ll just break your heart.

      You assume too much, my friend. I call bullshit when I see it.

    What’s the problem with the Poster?

    Bush said these things, right? They aren’t taken out of Context, are they? They are Actual statements made by Dubya, right?

    I don’t remember him being forced to say them.

    The FACT is, Bush at best is the Worst President in the history of this country.

    Remember “Fuzzy Math”, Strange, but it turns out that the only thing Fuzzy about that Math, was the delusion addled brain of Dubya. Everything else Gore Predicted came true. Deficits as far as the eye can see, Simian-like Foreign Policy, Domestic Policy that only benefitted Bush’s Campaign Contributors.

    Do we even need to mention “Heck of a Job Brownie”, and the sinking of Bushlantis? Dubya played his “geetar” while New Orleans drowned.

    If the FREEPERs/SocCons/NeoCons (ie the 25-20 Percenters) want a Pro-Bush Movie, get up off your butts and make one.

    Oh wait, they did, and short of a few Faux News scenes of Dubya Walking on Water, performing Miracles, and his Virgin Birth, the thing was a smoldering turd. Tim Bottoms as Dubya, eek.

    Bravo to Stone for having the guts to make a movie, rushed or not, that shows not only that the Chimperor is Naked, but Brainless as well!

    Yeah, ummm. I really wish you’d read the original poster’s comments.

    No one on this thread claimed Bush is great. No one claimed a negative movie about Bush should not be made.

    The poster simply – and accurately – pointed out that Stone has very publicly and vocally claimed this movie would not be anti-Bush, and the poster seems contradictory to that.

    This thread is about nothing as grandiose as the history of our presidency, simply the contradictions in a film’s marketing.

    I suppose someone will respond telling me that I love Bush.
