Morgan Spurlock in Super Size MeSUPER SIZE ME

At its best, Morgan Spurlock’s hit documentary Super Size Me plays like an adaptation of Eric Schlosser’s exposé Fast Food Nation: smart, funny, well-researched, and scary as hell.

President George W. Bush in Fahrenheit 9/11FAHRENHEIT 9/11

I have several friends, including professed liberals, who can’t stand Michael Moore, and it’s not hard to see why: Even if you’re on-board with Moore’s politics, his glibness, bullying tactics, self-promotion, relentless simplifying, and anything-for-a-laugh gags can get in the way of his Bigger Picture, to the point where his methods overcome his message.

Michael Moore in Bowling for ColumbineBOWLING FOR COLUMBINE

Michael Moore’s latest, the astounding documentary Bowling for Columbine, has finally made it to our area (it’s currently playing at the Quad Cities Brew & View), and although I spent a couple hundred words extolling its merits last month in the Reader – where I named it my favorite movie of 2002 – the film is so good that a few hundred more seem necessary.

Dim and Dimmer: "Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2" and "Lucky Numbers"

Kim Director and Erica Leerhsen in Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2BOOK OF SHADOWS: BLAIR WITCH 2

Let’s face it: There was plenty of built-in expectation with the arrival of Book of Shadows: Blair Witch 2, and the expectation was that the film would suck. Those who loved The Blair Witch Project, as I did, would miss that film’s cinéma vérité style and simplicity, and rail on about how Book of Shadows was exactly the kind of dumbed-down splatter flick that Blair Witch rebelled against. Those who hated the original, which seems the more common response (at least among my acquaintances), would have their beliefs confirmed that the whole Blair Witch “mythology” is lame, and that we’ve been hoodwinked by marketing and Internet paranoia into making these movies hits. Wouldn’t it be great to report that this sequel had defied its skeptics and emerged as smashing entertainment?
