Fast & Furious 6
The Hangover Part III
The movie seems destined to irritate the president's supporters while mobilizing his detractors, even as it is doomed to win precious few converts. It's a textbook example of preaching to the choir.
Perhaps you should review the movie, not the politics.
If you read Obama's book you would understand the context.
Sep 1 - 08:19 AM
Yeah, because the movie has nothing to do with politics.

"If you read Obama's book you would understand the context."
That actually quite damning when people need to read a book before a movie will make more narrative sense. Just saying.
Sep 1 - 08:59 AM
"Just saying" is precisely the adolescent response I would expect from a liberal. Why not end it with a "kewl" as well?
Sep 1 - 01:08 PM
Man the whole liberal rebuttal is extremely pathetic. Its literally the only thing you guys have.
Sep 2 - 08:43 AM
Sep 2 - 02:35 PM
So that's the's rebuttal? To insult? And then you declare my viewpoint pathetic?
This is the nicest phrase I can conjure at this point...
"Attack the post, not the poster."
Do you not see it as a weakness that needing to read a book before seeing the movie would be needed?
If you want me to see validity in your viewpoint stand back, breath for a moment, and please try again.

"DAMN LIBERALS, RUININ' MA 'CONOMIES AND STUFF. LIBERALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLS!"
Sep 4 - 01:10 PM
I just noticed Doug is yet another person who just registered and only commented on this film. Well, at let I know what he's up to.
Sep 5 - 09:05 PM
I could be wrong but I don't think Todd was saying that your view point was pathetic I think he was saying the argument from conservatives that you're just liberal is pathetic.
Sep 6 - 09:17 AM
"is precisely the adolescent response I would expect from a liberal." is precisely the ad hominem response I would expect from someone who can't attack an argument and resorts to attacking the person instead. Why not end it with "please disregard my comment entirely" as well?

Ryan, Congradulations! You win the Douche of the day Award. You can exchange it for 1 vote for Hussien Obama.
Sep 16 - 02:11 PM
Congratulations* Please learn to spell.
Oct 2 - 12:57 PM
We can all certainly see your level of intelligence, Robert Barker: another right-wing-nut who cannot even argue points, just blabber baseless BS.

I didn't read Obama's book and I understood all the facts D'Souza meticulously presented just fine. Don't cut Ryan any slack! D'Souza did his research into O's history from his grandfather, father, trusted mentor (Frank Davis, who was a card-carrying member of the Comm Party...factcheck: he showed us the card and it's #) and college & grad school anti-American friends / associates. Wow just think if Bush or Romney or Ryan had a trusted mentor that was a proven Communist. And why does O hate Great Britain so much?? The first thing he did when he took office was return a gift that country had given to the US: a bust of Winston Churchill. Lots of well-laid out facts & explanations relayed in a CALM coordinated manner, which some have mistaken for boring. Boring b/c you don't want to hear it..."just sayin'
Sep 17 - 08:35 AM
Julie, you (or any other viewer) understood practically NIL because this extreme propaganda film was full of distortions, BS and statements and events totally out of context, and if you HAD read Obama's book you would see it had NOTHING in common with this garbage. Obama does NOT see his father as any kind of mentor any more than Reagan saw his drunkard father as one, or Clinton his abusive father. Obama merely explored his as yet unknown but found-to-be very flawed father's and family roots, and found his own values to be much different - Obama's personal political views and values are distinctly HIS OWN and not his father's or other family members' any more than yours are your father's and family's. Pres Obama as well as any of us are NOT clones of our ancestors but develop our own personal identities.
I had a friend in college who leaned towards Communism - did that make me a Communist or even a socialist?? Of course not (in fact, far from it). I'm glad to hear that Obama was brought up, influenced by and is anti-colonialist, that's an evil institution of the past (In fact, America itself is FOUNDED on anti-coloialism.) However, Obama did NOT have "anti-American" friends, and you will nor find that in any book or statement of Obama's, just lies from his detractors. BTW, speaking of mentors, Ryan's favorite is Ayn Rand, an atheist and pro-abortionist- does that make Ryan one? (although maybe it ought to discredit him from the religious right).
I don't know WHERE you get that Obama "hates" Great Britain. (If you were more knowledgable you would know that the bust of Winston Churchill was on loan to the US, and was not returned expressly by Obama (as if it mattered). There were NO "well-laid-out facts and explanations" in this film about Obama, only false assertions and innuendo, and YES boring defamatory and laughable imaginary propaganda that made no sense. Obama clearly has shown who he is and what he stands for: every-day Americans, as shown by his political policies and record over the last four years, in which he has been digging the country out of the unbelievably bad economic mess Bush2 and the Repubs got us into, and despite their incredible obstructionism; and that is for American freedom, fairness, equal rights, and opportunities for ALL Americans, not just tax breaks for the wealthy which have only harmed the nation - NONE of which was presented or mentioned in the extremely slanted propaganda of this faulty, flimsy, falsely-presented and ineffectual film.
Oct 16 - 12:04 PM
Oh, and BTW, that's probably why the film was rated ROTTEN (at an embarassing 28% for director D'Souza) by the professional film reviewers...ya think? Just read THEIR reasons and you'll see why.
Oct 16 - 12:12 PM
Wait are you seriously upset because one of Obama's mentors was a communist? That's like being upset at Plato for discussing philosophy. Or Gandhi for preaching nonviolence. Hating communism is an old fashioned example of people hating on different ideals. Communism vs. capitalism is not the way the world works anymore and honestly it never was.
Oct 28 - 02:19 AM
Don't Michael Moore's movies do much the same? It's funny how politics get in the way of critical thinking.
Sep 1 - 02:26 PM
Yeah, but Michael Moore tends to focus more on actual problems and social issues than on why certain political parties are so great.
Sep 4 - 01:12 PM
Michael Moore also has a brain - and compassion.
Oct 16 - 12:40 PM
um...I was actually taking your opinion into consideration, but you just lost me with this post.
Oct 26 - 05:44 AM
You're right, the disillusioned former Obama supporters don't need this movie to convince them of anything. He's done more damage to his own presidency than this movie could ever do. "Obama's America 2016" helps us understand more about his background and what motivates him; something the MSM failed to do four years ago.
Sep 1 - 02:36 PM
The fact that you used the acronym MSM to refer to the "mainstream media" shows that you are a Faux Newser and thus completely invalidates your ability to render a non-biased opinion of the film. And actually, it proves the reviewer's point that this movie won't change minds. You, for example, already buy what the wing-nuts are selling and only saw this movie to know someone agrees with your far-right views.
It's not hard to spot a Faux Newser. You guys talk just like the commentators and radio hosts you listen to all day, everyday. It's like they've brainwashed you and you just spout out whatever they tell you to spout out.
Sep 2 - 05:29 PM
The fact that you used faux newser shows that you have no life and are in fact a faux newser avec aucune vie.
I actually voted for Obama and was on the fence. Before watching I knew a lot of the facts but this movie showed me what could possibly be driving his decisions. After doing some research and after looking out the window and being reminded of the state of the economy, the unemployment rate, and the massive debt I converted to voting for anyone other than Obama.
Sep 4 - 10:02 AM
I'm actually an independent libertarian, but you are correct that I loathe Fox News with every fiber of my being.
Politicians are politicians, and lies and ulterior motives are part of the game. But attaching the word "News" to the end of Fox News is an outright slap in the face to all real news outlets around the world today and historically.
Sep 8 - 10:05 PM
Faux News is to the left what MSNBC is to the right. But last I checked, MSNBC's tagline wasn't something so completely laughable as "Fair and Balanced". Fair and Balanced? Ha. It'd actually be funny if it weren't so pathetic.
Sep 8 - 10:09 PM
oh you mean like the decision to pass a jobs bill that would have added a million more jobs to the economy if it hadn't been blocked by republicans. Or do you mean his plan to reduce the debt by $4 trillion over the next decade. I guess you prefer the republicans plan to reduce the debt by giving another $5 trillion worth of tax cuts to millionaires with out any clear idea of where it will come from.
Sep 9 - 12:57 PM
The massive debt and unemployment was created by Bush2 and his lack of funding for TWO expensive wars (one of which, Iraq, was a SENSELESS waste of blood and treasure), while CUTTING taxes especially for the wealthy, which led to a housing and financial meltdown and the greatest Recession since the Great Depression, all a full YEAR BEFORE Obama was even sworn in as president. It's amazing how quickly people forget who CAUSED it all in the first place, and how difficult it is to struggle out of it when the Repubs are so obstructionist they'd rather try to defeat a president at any cost than help fix America's economy and help its people.
Oct 16 - 12:25 PM
Gregory, what drives Pres Obama's decisions more than anything is compassion for the people, rather than greed for wealth, like Romney.
Oct 16 - 12:47 PM
A Republican retard, and a FOX supporter. Zero intelligence present here.
Sep 2 - 09:01 PM
The most curious aspect of this "review" is that it conveniently neglects to mention "2016's" Hollywood pedigree: Its producer is Academy Award-winner Gerald Molen, of "Schindler's List' fame.
Sep 2 - 01:11 PM
As if that was relevant. GTFO! Of course, you FOX news minions always love to credit where the money is because Money Rules, right?
Sep 3 - 01:42 PM
Guess what? It is relevant! For example: having Steven Spielburg's name on a movie for any reason at all automatically makes it the next big thing. It is relevant. On another note: strangely, money is a big part of the movie industry. Big talent=big actor/producer/director=big (and sometimes, but not always good) movie=big paycheck. Sorry to break it to you in such cruel fashion as a comment.
Sep 6 - 10:11 PM
Also relevant that his pedigree includes THE FLINTSTONES, and more ridiculous movies than good.
Sep 10 - 11:16 PM
Being a right-winger and a Mormon, and a Romney supporter, Molen naturally jumped at a chance to produce this flop.

No I think it is educating the choir. I wondered why I never heard of the POTUS until five years ago, and I keep up with politics. Now I know why his records are sealed, and who his true alligence is for. Dinesh D'Souza's use of Obama's own words from his audio book to narate the documentary is chilling. A must see for EVERYONE no matter what song you're singing.
Sep 3 - 01:00 PM
I'd be willing to watch it; I just wouldn't waste money on it.
Sep 3 - 01:43 PM
Left vs. Right doesn't exist. It's all the same big government takeover if both parties are anti freedom and anti-freemarket. But hey, let's bitch at each other for watching fox news over MSNBC and play right into the divide and conquer while our country falls apart!
Sep 4 - 11:59 AM
From 1 theater to over 2,000 in a few weeks... that's gotta hurt. There's so much information I went to see it twice and it was better the second time. If you've ever wondered why Obama hates America and why he cozies up to America's enemies, this movie will explain everything. Excellent movie!

What a load of nonsense. No wonder the American political system is dysfunctional. Too many Americans are looking for a convenient scapegoat for the changes that are taking place throughout the world.
Sep 7 - 04:37 PM
it is not preaching to the choir it is the clearest analysis of Obama out there. Does no one see the behavior of Obama and if they do why do they close their eyes. Look who he chooses to hang out with. What norman American would hang out with these radical kooks. Ask yourself have you ever hung out with such radicals or have you just sat around smoking dope and drinking chardonay with Saab driving liberal posers. I'll bet the latter. Have you ever been abandoned by your father and shuttled from third-world countries by your wacky mother who also abandons you. Do you know what this does to a person, the sadness, the anger, the delusion you must develop...and what soothed his sadness...crazy radicals and America haters. This is where his heart is, certainly not America.
Sep 7 - 09:23 PM
Christ hung out with whores and thieves, and encouraged everyone to give away their possessions. I'm sure you would have been shouting the loudest to have him nailed to the cross.
Sep 10 - 11:20 PM
please tell me you are not suggesting that Obama can be compared to ...Jesus?
Oct 26 - 05:42 AM
You're right. Rush Limbaugh isn't a radical. Sarah Palin isn't a radical. Newt Gingrich isn't a radical. The Koch brothers are radical libertarians. Andrew Brietbart wasn't a radical. Michelle Bachmann isn't a radical. Sean Hannity isn't a radical. Michelle Malkin isn't a radical. Michael Savage isn't a radical. Ann Coulter isn't a radical. Rand Paul isn't a radical. Glenn Beck DEFINITELY isn't a radical. Need I go on? Must I go on?
Please don't make me. I'm starting to lose faith in America.
Sep 12 - 10:32 PM
Yeah, just like Reagan's drunkard father really screwed him up...
Oct 16 - 01:04 PM
Well, no surprise this movie didn't get good reviews considering liberals control the media.
Sep 10 - 11:54 AM
Yeeeaaah. THAT'S why it got bad reviews. Uh huh. Gotcha.
Sep 12 - 10:34 PM
Having read the book prior to viewing, I found it easy to follow. As an unabashed "O" supporter, I found these truths about him disturbing. I now know we were lied to and the film backs that assertion up.
Sep 20 - 12:47 AM
So, having read Pres Obama's own book revealing the REAL Obama and being an unabashed supporter of his, THEN watching a right-wing propaganda conspiracy film distorted to try to discredit him, you believe the movie over Obama's own book, as well as his established policies and record over the past four years? THAT'S an intelligent choice....
Oct 16 - 01:13 PM
This movie is simply right-wing distorted propaganda BS which will only impress those already dumb enough to buy the right-wing media's anti-Obama garbage.. Pres Obama's first book, Dreams from My father, written back in '95, and unsullied by the film's selective distortions and driveling drama (meaning, not documentative), is actually a daring and frank memoir of Obama's life experiences growing up, and how his early life helped mold the character and compassionate life views he holds today as reflected in his political policies and record. He is a patriotic American who cares about his fellow Americans, and of course has no sinister agenda kept hidden over four years as president, as if that made up malarkey were possible as "portrayed" in the moronic movie.
If anybody wants to get to know and understand the real Obama, and to get a better picture of Obama's specific views and political policies and vision for America today, check out Obama's book The Audacity of Truth. I doubt Romney could come even close to writing such an articulate, complex and compelling book on his own personal political dogma.
