ebert & roeper's review of outfoxed
Edited on Sun Jul-25-04 08:38 PM by theoceansnerves
was hilarious! although roeper gave it a thumbs down (for valid reasons) and ebert gave it a thumbs up, basically the entire review was them going off about how biased fox is and how obvious it is; ebert flat out said it's a republican propaganda machine! it was great!

2. it was on their tv show
which is airing here in los angeles right now. i don't think it's repeated though, check your listings to see if it airs sometime later for you.

5. I just saw it today
they had to have a special showing in a regular movie theater because too many people showed up on the MoveOn night. It was crowded.

I enjoyed it but parts got a little slow. I'm not sure how you could have made a documentary like that anymore interesting though. It was nice to see a lot of comments from former Kucinich campaigner Jeff Cohen. I saw funny new reasons to dislike Bill O'Really.

9. Yes.. got a little slow, but less so than Uncovered (Greenwald's
doc on the Iraqi war). BUt, both are well worth watching, IMO. For me, that meant watching Uncovered a couple of times, since I would fade a bit at the detail being presented. Great for a future reference piece though and I loved having the interviews that each presented.

8. Times ARE a'changing, aren't they?
Documentaries are coming out of the American public's ears, now. I think that that is a good thing. The Republican Party has been able to put forth it's pro-business agenda so well only because it focuses on emotional buttons, not the facts.

10. Roeper
Yeah but Roeper for some reason thinks that the average person knows that FOX is a lapdog (his words!) for the RNC. I think he needs to get out more. The average person is CLUELESS.

11. If it's anything like the "Uncovered" movie...
...it means there's another bad music score. I enjoyed watching "Uncovered" but let's face it, that background music got irritating after awhile. It sounded like something you'd hear in one of those bad soft-core porn movies you'd find on latenight HBO or Cinemax
