Hopefully this movie will be more factually accurate than the garbage that was JFK.

WHAT!!! JFK was a great film. Maybe not totally accuarate but it had enough of the discrepencies that were a part of the conspiracy to hold up. Maybe you think it was "garbage" because it didn't do what the government liars have attempted to do to us for over 40 years...pretend that Lee Harvey Oswald did it all alone. Now that is GARBAGE!!!!!

It raised issues and was a well made movie but it was fiction. Governments cover up their own stupidity.

JFK is probably his most skillfully done movie.

Platoon is some powerful shit, too.

The rumour here is that Stone will make a movie about our president

My very first date consisted of going to see that movie, after which we went for coffee and dessert and dazedly attempted to make small talk while still reeling from footage of mass graves set to Barber's Adagio. Not romantic!

Not exactly a date movie, huh. Reminds me of my sister forcing us to watch "Dead Man Walking" on Christmas Eve!

I liked "Any Given Sunday" personally.

The trailer. I think it'll be bigger than Dark Knight. Kill the Saddam! *Joker voice* The part I saw says it's out this Fall.

YouTube - dubya

honestly, the trailer looks a bit painful. it's very strange to see actors impersonating people who are still constantly on the news. feels like an SNL skit.

and Oliver Stone hasn't made a good movie in almost 20 years.

but who knows?

Yeah it looks pretty bad...

But I wouldn't say 20 years, Any Given Sunday was decent and Natural Born Killers was excellent.

Please rank Platoon first....thank you.

JFK the movie - took everything it possibly could from the conspiracy community and attempted to wrap it into one.

THe best thing it accomplished was to get some of the documents released sooner - and that in turn has allowed for the debunking of many of the conspiracies.

Stone based his film around the book by Jim Garrison. The case built by Garrison looked semi-plausible on a cursory examination but under closer examination did not stack up. Clay Shaw was most likely an innocent man unfairly hounded.

The film 'JFK' and the book which inspired it are best seen as entertaining works of fiction.

my comment on JFK had nothing to do with it's factual-ness, or lack thereof -- i find it a very sophisticated piece of filmmaking is all.

Stone also gets points for getting a brilliant performance out of Tom "Crazy" Cruise in "Born on the 4th of July."

True that. It's the only movie I can think of where Tom Cruise isn't playing Tom Cruise.

I loved "Any Given Sunday."

The movie W seems too soon.

He settled on Garrison :O) Threaded the other stuff.
