Ray Bradbury Is Pissed

Ray Bradbury rips Michael Moore describes Rab Bradbury’s indignation of the title of Michael Moore’s new movie, Fahrenheit 9/11:

Michael Moore is a screwed a–hole, that is what I think about that case… He copied my title; that is what happened. That has nothing to do with my political opinions.

  1. Speaking of movies, I saw the latest Harry Potter flick. I was never too excited about the previous two movies, and this one was no different. (My take on the books: I read the first one and found it entertaining, but couldn’t move on to the other books because it was just the same thing but in a different package, and one book of it was enough for me.)

    Nothing really happens in this movie. We find out who “really” killed Harry’s parents, and it’s such a convoluted set of circumstances, I couldn’t be bother caring enough to follow it. I was so bored by the movie I took a nap for at least 15 minutes of it. I woke up during a scene where Harry goes back in time to a scene they’d just played out, and so we get to watch it all over again from a different perspective — exactly the same events from a different camera angle. Ooooooo.

    If I was 13 years old and loved all the Harry Potter books, and was dressed up as Harry Potter like half the kids in the theatre were, I’d probably think this movie was awesome. But I’m not 13 and I’m not much of a fan. I don’t dislike the movies, but, like the books, I think one was enough. Everything after that just feels repetitious and ultimately boring. I’m definitely NOT seeing the next one.

    Harmless fun for kids, but it mostly nap time for me.

    P.S., If you’re going to see it, I’d wait a couples weeks for the crowds to die down. I saw it during a matinee and even then it was packed. This is the largest crowd for a movie I’ve seen in a long time (and I only go to matinees).

  2. I’d walk out of a movie before I’d take a nap at one, and the only one I walked on was Ace Ventura: Pet Detective: Dawn and I didn’t laugh once during it, and it felt uncomfortably out-of-place in a theater where EVERYONE ELSE WAS LAUGHING. So we left.

    We’re going to see the Harry Potter movie today.

  3. You saw Ace Ventura: Pet Detective and you shit on me because I saw Barbershop 2?

    As for falling asleep in movies, I fell asleep during two of the Lord of the Rings movies, but they were still good movies. Full of serious, long-winded conversations about nothing, but still worth watching. I’d rather sleep through those boring parts than watch them. So I know how to make use of my time. Big deal.

    And where was your brain the day you decided to see Ace Ventura: Pet Detective? Shame.

  4. Ace Ventura: Pet Detective was Carrey’s first hit, and we didn’t know what an ass he was at the time. We went because of word-of-mouth. I don’t think I’ve gone to any other of his comedies.

  5. Saw “The Chronicles of Riddick.” Probably the worst movie I’ve seen this year. I came very close to walking out. Nuff said.
