Movie Reviews

Watch this movie.
j. sistin | Los Angeles, CA | 03/24/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Excellent documentary that talks about the way the media and the American government heave misled the American people into the Vietnam and Iraq wars and then actively rewrite history to cover the facts.

How many times have we heard, "no one could have known Iraq didn't have WMDs" or "if i knew then what i know now." The fact is, we did know the chances were extremely low, and the protesters before the war began numbered in the millions. The media, rather than investigating and out of fear of being "unpatriotic" fell in lockstep with the administration.
Times right now are scary, and this movie shows how the freedoms we take for granted are being grievously abused. Watch this movie to be reminded of how the media and the government should work in relation to one another.

Great examination of factors (mis)leading us into war
Mike Hersh | Maryland | 02/03/2008

"Norman Solomon is a thoughtful scholar and his powerful analysis makes clear the many factors which let government officials (mis)lead us into war. A must see! Also read the book: War Made Easy: How Presidents and Pundits Keep Spinning Us to Death"
Just saw it today -- must have it!

"My wife and I went to a peace rally today where Barbara Lee and Daniel Ellsberg talked, and then this movie was shown. It's wonderful, in a depressing way. We must have it to show to friends -- an anyone who supports the war."
Definitely a "Must See"....
Salvador A. Delarosa III | San Antonio, Texas United States | 03/27/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I agree with the others who have seen the film, this is most definitely a must see documentary.
Tired of all the lies being told by bush (he doesn't even deserve a "capital b") concerning the war in Iraq? Then watch this film and learn how the government has lied before (Vietnam) in order to get us into a war and how they continue to do so to this day.
As for the "conservative reviewer" who gave this film only one star, have you even seen the film? And do you know how to spell and structure sentences correctly? Funny how alot of those right wingers have trouble spelling (probably due to too much inbreeding).
Anyway, Joe Bob says (concerning this film)"check it out!""
