Cuban Movie Crisis


Mark Cuban is catching heat due to his company, Magnolia Pictures, planning to release a revamped Internet "movie" called Loose Change.

The movie claims that 9/11 was orchestrated by The Government in order to justify subsequent attacks in the Middle East. Yep, you read that right. Cuban has been relatively silent since the controversy ramped up this week, but I expect that is designed for the sake of publicity.

The 1 1/2 hour movie is on Google Video here. I've only watched part of it but it is well done. No, I don't believe it - I'm just saying its well produced.

Oh boy. That's all we need. Another Michael Moore wanna be stirring the pot. And to think there are people out there gullible enough to believe it, just like "An Inconvenient Lie" and "Farenheit 9/11."

What if 9/11 happened two month earlier? Do you think 7/11 would have changed their name?

Catching heat? He should be catching a flight to the funny farm. What an idiot.

I'm just not much on conspiracy theories. First, you need a great plan and execute it perfectly. Then you need to keep all of the conspirators quiet.

Watching how the Bush boys have bungled all other aspects of the Iraq invasion and other governmental activities, how could anyone imagine how they could pull off 9/11 and have no one blow the cover? Nope, they're just not that smart.

WOW!
What a LAME premise.
Cuban MAY be good at WHATEVER the heck it is that he DOES but the douche bag knows NOTHING about the Bush Administration's Foreign Affairs Policy.

Bush, Chaney and Rumsfeld would NEVER feel the need to "JUSTIFY" any action.

Remember, Bush is the "decider."

It's actually a pretty good movie. It's all conspiracy theory, but it makes some good points (especially the idea about how the towers, structurally, shouldn't have collapsed). It's definitely worth a look.

This movie has been out for a really long time. Cuban is just producing the more mass-released version. Before anyone says anything about it, you should watch it. Again, I don't agree with everything in the movie, but it does make you think a bit.
