W.



This is the trailer for Oliver Stone's biopic about George W. Bush.

Something tells me it's not going to be too flattering, though Josh Brolin looks pretty decent as Bush. Can't say I'm excited about the film, as bio flicks tend to be rather one sided, and lack the breadth that a biography in book form does for me. Also, lets face it, I don't really care about American Presidents that much either.

But Oliver Stone did write the screen play for Conan the Barbarian and in this day and age, I've decided that holds water for me.

I feel it's too early to do the George W. movie, to be honest. I'll give it a look, because I like a lot of Oliver Stone's other films, but it hasn't grabbed me.

i've liked a couple of stone films, but he's more miss than hit for me, i have to say.

I have an enormous love for JFK - not so much for the content, so much as for the way in which it was shot and how its script was constructed.

See, now I'm wishing he had cast Schwarzenegger as Bush. Oh come ON, you know we'd all pay money to see that movie!
