I LOVES MY GUN

Sorry. It's definitely been a minute since I've updated this page. I still have a handful of new additions to present, but I just sorta got out of the mood and kinda crapped out. I've said it before and I'll say it again - forcing myself to write about 1001 movies REALLY turned me off to writing about movies. However, I still love watching them and hopefully I can get on a tear and present some more of my favorites.

You all know how the SINS OF OMISSION deal works and if not, it's written somewhere close, so just scroll around and it's not hard to find. Now then - on with the show.

Next entry is Bowling for Columbine, a fabulous, Academy Award winning documentary from Michael Moore. This offering from Moore tackles the gun problem in America, specifically the wave of gun issues that seemed to spark up following the tragedy at Columbine high school. I remember seeing this for the first time and being baffled at some of the education I was getting. Highlights include, Moore signing up for a checking account at a bank that offers a free gun to new account holders, Moore confronting NRA spokesperson Charlton Heston and Moore interviewing the seemingly unstable James Nichols.









RATING: 8/10
