Movie of the Day – John Q

Gah…….this illness sucks.  And with all illnesses, there is an underlying issue and cure to be had.  The issue, I am still not better.  The cure, Denzel Washington movies.  While I could watch a myriad of other Washington films that are largely better, I settled on this one cause if we need a change in the medical world, then by god Denzel is the man to do it.

Movie of the Day – Sicko

I am not doing this post to make a political statement or trying to drum up some kind of heated discussion on the topic of healthcare in America.  I mean if people want to talk about it in the comments section, please feel free to do so.  What I am wanting to talk about today is a solid documentary film, that is what I want to do and maybe some personal commentary.  No matter what Michael Moore does, he always has his detractors.  Whether they launch into the man and his weight problem, call him ultra-liberal or disparage his films as being one-sided and sensational, I got to give him some credit with his skills in terms of getting us to talk about the issues.  It might be far too left leaning for me (I don’t affiliate with Democrat or Republican parties) at times, but you got to appreciate that this individual is going out and tackling the things that matter most to Americans and bringing it to light.  That is what a good documentary is, even if there is an agenda behind it, the mechanics and themes resonate.
