Fahrenheit 9/11 (2004)

 Rated very R. We couldn’t discuss this topic without getting remarkably angry.

The Next 119 Project has us spitting nails about the horrendous presidency of George W. Bush, as documented (mostly accurately?) by America’s Provocateur-In-Chief Michael Moore. As dreadful as things are in 2018, it’s easy to forget that the second-most-recent Republican Commander-In-Cluelessness did his best to do the worst. Our outraged liberal leanings are on full display here, so if you can’t stand to hear Junior torn to ribbons (or the current garbage president…or the hypocritical members of the media, for that matter), then just come back next week when the movie is about John Wayne trying to murder people. Lighter material! To gear you up for this very long listen, you must go to Sparkplug Coffee’s website and get some joe in ya. If you use the promo code “top100project”, you’ll even get a one-time 10% discount.

For The Record: The movie wasn’t just nominated for Razzies….it won 4 of them (for Bush, Rumsfeld, Bush & Condi Rice as Worst Couple and, ridiculously, Britney Spears for her 9 seconds of screen time). Also, the beloved Oldboy was one of the nominees for the Palme D’Or at Cannes the same year Fahrenheit 9/11 won the top prize, so….not a political award, huh, Quentin?
