Sicko released early

06.19.2007

Sicko Perhaps in an effort to stymy the rampant pre-release piracy of Michael Moore's upcoming indictment of the US health care system, SICKO, Lionsgate and The Weinstein Co. have decided to release the film in Manhattan a week earlier than its original June 29th release date (which would put it at June 22nd). Or maybe they've noticed how well the film's being received and want to get some word-of-mouth going before its wide release. Either way, this flick's gonna make some serious bank because if there's one thing that chubby bastard knows how to do is rile people up into a self-righteous huff and that translates to mad box office cash. We're talking "Judd Apatow comedy" type cash here.

Piracy

The real reason movies like Hostel 2 failed was because it sucked. I don't know anyone personally who knows where to find net films to download! Oh sure there are people out there who know where to go and what to do, but the VAST majority do not. Only a truly egocentric moron would think they tanked because someone downloaded it, instead of examining the quality of the work or the interest of the public. Bootlegs have been around a mighty long time folks and although I remember the talk of E.T.

Bootlegs have been around a mighty long time folks and although I remember the talk of E.T. bootlegs being sold everywhere when I was a little kid, seems to me that flick kind of did okay. Stealing is bad of course, but this whole thing has been blown waaaaay out of proportion.

Saw it, lame!

I personally can't stand this guy because he is not a filmmaker! His supposed talents are to rile people up (because he says he believes in it) just to make money! If his movies didn't make money, would we ever have heard of this nimrod? I think not. Granted our American Healthcare system sucks, but at the same time we all complain of the huge taxes already imposed on us; Can you imagine what each tax on the dollar would be if we had universal Healthcare? Where I live it is 8 cents on the

Where I live it is 8 cents on the dollar as of now, It would probably go up to 25 cents on the dollar then! It's about as informative as anything that someone complains about. Enjoy, even though I wouldn't watch it again.
