An Exersice In Futility With Oliver Stone
Posted by bmac on April 1, 2008
The first thing I ask myself is: Who the fuck would finance this? Who on Earth could possibly think anyone would be remotely interested in seeing a George Bush biopic? I like Bush, and I’d sit through a Rachel Ray marathon before I’d see this, even if it was a lovingly crafted portrayal of Bush as American hero.
Ok, I take that back, I’d cut off my nads with a rusty butter-knife before I’d sit through a minute of that scatchy-voiced freak, but still. This is guaranteed to lose boatloads of money.
Stone’s trying to rush it out in time for the election. What’s the point? To quote about a billion people, he’s not running. Does Stone think someone will confuse Bush with McCain? Why would you waste everyone’s time with something so utterly pointless?
No matter what you think of Bush, I think we can all agree that we’re sick of him. After eight of some of the most tumultuous years in our history, ALL OF US have had just about enough of our 43rd President. This project is just so wrong on so many….scratch that……every single possible level, I’m shocked that even the most liberal, BDS suffering, communist, dirtbag Hollywood financier, studio, or producer didn’t have Stone committed when he pitched it.
Unless Stone has Bush time-traveling, or fighting Topless Female Ninja-Jedi-Playmates, no one, fan or foe, could give a flying fuck about seeing this totally self-indulgent, four years too late exercise in futility.
Has Stone made a movie that hasn’t tanked in the last 15 years?
Cuss Count: Who cares, I hate that motherfucker.
