Fans Give “2016 Obama’s America” Top Rating – Leftist Critics Say It’s Just So-So
Gateway Pundit ^ | Sept.1,2012 | Jim Hoft

What a surprise. Fandango is a movie website that has reviews, tickets, movie times and ratings. Fandango “fans” continue to give “2016 Obama’s America” the top rating – “Must Go.”

But for some reason movie critics across the country have panned the movie giving it a rating of just “So-So.” These far left critics just don’t see what all the buzz is about?

Wouldn’t it be fine if the Romney campaign would use their millions in left-over cash to show this documentary on Fox the weekend before the election? That would truly be a “public service.”

That would be wonderful; it would get Super Bowl ratings.

Has anyone seen any Rat attempts to say that anything in the movie is not true? It seems that they are either ignoring it and hoping it will go away or realize that the facts in the movie are indisputable.

Rotten Tomatoes movie critics have it 35%.
They also gave Fahrenheit 911 86%.

I saw “2016” last night. It was excellent!

Obama is doing and will continue to do what he said five days before his election. He is “transforming” the United States of America. He knows exactly what he is doing and he is not stupid. God help us if he is re-elected.

I did a quick head count when the film was over. There were about 40 - 50 people in a theater which had about 230 seats.

All: please go to see this film! It’s important to help defend us from Obama’s goal to make the US “European Style Democratic Socialist Republic.” And tell family and friends to go.

I think the Democrats are just ignoring this movie.

Well, to be intellectually honest, what can they say? The liberals praised Farenheit 911 even though it was a twisted absurd “documentary” about Bush.

So even if they want to say that this Obama movie isn’t accurate in some way, how can they say anything when the movie about Bush was full of inaccuracies, and was obviously slanted????????

It would be a brilliant move. Therefore, the GOP will not do it.

The good and the bad.

The Good - the content is great. The negative reviews were written to keep people away. The content blows away the accusations of the critics.

The Bad - It’s an hour and a half of non-stop three to five second scene changes. Add to that a shaky camera in many scenes. It was nauseating to watch.

We really need to know about the media people we take our news and opinions from. Call it vetting if you will. I mean can we really trust people who we only know through the facades that they themselves control. Is there a website that has true biographies of these people and organizations?

“Rotten Tomatoes movie critics have it 35%.
They also gave Fahrenheit 911 86%.”

I quit bothering with what the “critics” think a long time ago.

1. They write the reviews for each other, rather than for anyone wondering whether they should go the movie or not, trying to impress their colleagues about how cool they are.

2. Their reviews are highly tainted by numerous unstated prejudices, ranging from personal hatred or adulation of specific directors and actors, to the obvious fact that almost all reviewers are “progressives” and one of their primary review criteria is whether a movie perpetuates or impedes “progressiveness”.

Fortunately, the Internet has rendered professional “critics” irrelevant, because now we can read hundreds of interesting, non-professional commentaries about movies, many of which state up from where the commenter is coming from.

Saw it yesterday. There was really nothing new for anybody who has spent the past four years on Free Republic, but it is worth seeing for the fear factor that those box office numbers has to putting into the White Hut.

I am going to see it again just to add a little more to the box office numbers.

I agree. I think the “production/camera stuff” could have been better. I hate the “shakey-camera-reality-show” crap. Hill Street Blues, I think, was one of the first TV shows to have that. Made me ill too.

Also, during D’Souza’s interview with George Obama while sitting on the bench, the picture frame was cropped at the top of their heads. Dumb.

Better yet buy the ticket and give it to someone who hasn’t seen the movie as yet.

The audience was the most pleasant I have ever been with. Obama jokes being cracked while in the long ticket line, conservative bumperstickers in the parking lot and complete silence during the movie.

Mrs. AAM and I saw it last night along with a very good crowd. It was extremely well done form a journalistic and cinematic (to a contemporary audience) standpoint. D'Souza was bending-over-backwards fair in his pursuit and presentation of facts. Though many Freepers know most of the dots presented in the film, all would benefit from 2016's presentation of the supporting research and its coherent connection of those dots.

Even if you think you don't need to see it, you do! Greater numbers attract attention, build momentum and encourage even more viewers, and 2016's thorough presentation provides a common framework for public discussions of the devastating content. You will not be disappointed. Go see it!

One more thing... If you or I tried to explain to Joe Voter that Obama is a Marxist, he'd likely roll his eyes and say "Yeah, right!"

But after viewing D'Souza's full presentation of the evidence in 2016, Joe Voter is more likely to say to himself "Damn, that Obama is a Communist!"

When you've got the best tool for the job, use it!

I tell my lib associates; I despise Clinton for what I know about him. I despise Obama for what I don’t know about him.

Gets an interesting reaction.
