There are many ways to approach the phenomenon that is Michael Moore’s latest film, Fahrenheit 9/11, not the least of which is to note that it has forced me to learn how to spell “fahrenheit.” We have reactions from across the spectrum:
Kid Rock on Moore
CMU has this bit of news from the world of Kid Rock: Well, don’t expect Kid Rock to donate a track to any anti-Bush compliation. Not if this story is true. Word is that the American rocker was among a…

Fox Under Fire: Part One
The new “documentary” Outfoxed looks to take on Rupert Murdoch in the same way that liberal activist Michael Moore took on the Bush administration with his highly successful Fahrenheit 9/11. Though director Robert Greenwald’s film is unlikely to see anywhere…

Fahrenheit 9/11 proves the power of liberal emotion over independent thought
Moore could convince the world that the moon is a man-made satellite, put there by the Americans just to aggravate a space race with the Soviets, if he put enough emotion into it.

EW interviews Michael Moore
While reading the several pages of the interview, I found myself really connecting with Michael Moore for the first time. I have appreciated his objectives as a film maker on an intellectual level throughout his career, but remained emotionally distant. That changed.

Moore’s Hot Topic
The crowds for the film were remarkable -it was sold out (this on a Saturday afternoon, for a movie with no orcs, light-sabers, or even Jesus).

While I agree with the basic premise of the movie, much of Michael Moore’s argument is based on an emotional appeal that I inherently resist.

Michael Moore is rock rulin’
I’d like to slap the taste out of his mouth about half the time, but this film release was orchestrated absolutely brilliantly. He really created an event.

Ray Bradbury makes me mad
What, does Bradbury think he owns the word “fahrenheit”? Are we supposed to pay Bradbury a fee every time we buy a frickin’ frozen pizza with cooking instructions printed on the back?
