    It's supposed to be 2 hours of anti-america, anti-bush propaganda.

    And I was somewhat surprised to see on the news on apparently how far left of left Matt Damon is.

    If that is true, I find I don't want to support that kind of leaning. Petty of me, I know, but it might make me feel better! :rofl:

    That is what I heard also. I am not feeling sitting through that for 2-hours.
    I'm going to at least wait until the GT faithful comeback with a review.

    I'm going for the action scenes/gun-play. They can keep their propaganda.

    That's how the commercials depict it because they fear nobody would see it otherwise.

    I'll see it, I'm a fan of Matt Damon's work. His politics (of which I'm wholly ignorant) don't figure into it for me.

    If it's a movie with a message I disagree with, well, it's not like it's going to be the first time.

    Besides, it looks like it's got a ton of "gun fu."

    I have always thought I was the type of person who had the ability to separate an actor's roles from their personal beliefs. And indeed I have been that way for quite a few years. But I'm really rather tired of Hollywood's shoving it in my face any longer. Especially with Matt Damon.

    Here's a guy, that from my prospective, is as far left as they come and loony as a goon. He takes every opportunity he can get to decry the state of affairs in his Country, blames us for everything since Abel's murder, and just pretty much hates any govt except that govt which controls, shapes, and dictates our lives, based on his own statements. Yet the only money making role he can get/wants, is one playing a "bad" CIA agent turned "good". One who travels the world setting right all the wrongs his Country has implemented. In all his movies with this character, notice how the mean old folks in Washington can only be, and just must be defeated by his character, who is now "good"?

    In his personal statements, much like Shawn Penn, he would take away many of those freedoms he fights for in his movies. And while he is seen using some bang up weapons in his movies, he would not allow any of us to own any of even the simplest of them.


    No, the movie itself may certainly be a "good movie", though I haven't seen it............I just can't bring myself to make him a better or richer living. My dime as they say. Anyway, it's not as if he's one of the better actors we have in this Country.

    Well, he's not.


    I would see the movie if he weren't in it and Hollywood wasn't using it as a clear propaganda statement. Just "how I roll" I suppose. I'm simply tired of "being sent a message", even a message I may agree with, in almost every bit of entertainment I watch these days. Willy Nilly that I am, sometimes I just want to be entertained.

    I'm looking forward to seeing it. Since I liked the Bourne movies, I've got high hopes for this one.

    Me too, I don't care about movie star politics the same way I don't care about reality TV and whether musicians are nice people. The movie looks like a rocker.

    It's funny that the only movies Matt Damon does are saturated with guns. Makes me wonder if he ever feels like a whore.

    There are too many good movies and good actors out there for me to support a left-wing global warming moonbat.

    But that's the thing. It is not the star's politics that are the issue with the film. It is the film's politics that seem to be at issue. Nobody cares what Matt Damon thinks. I doubt Matt Damon even knows what Matt Damon thinks. The movie is not part of the Bourne series. It just has enough connections to the Bourne series that they tout that in the commercials for this movie. Yet this movie sounds like your typical anti-military Hollywood drivel.

    I'm really quite comfortable being exposed to opposing points of view. Why do you think I keep hanging out here? :tongueout:

    I don't feel the need to eschew everything I disagree with. A movie with a message I disagree with doesn't make the movie "bad" automatically.

    A story has many parts that don't involve the ideology of the author.

    Welcome to my world, brother Paul. Last movie I saw was Oceans 11, which must have been in 2000, 2001, before all those butthead actors in it came out so ugly against the previous President.

    I choose not to differentiate between the two. He has EVERY right to voice his opinion. I have EVERY right not to give him/them my money.

    Exactly my point of view.
