Time’s change. People change. Michael Moore does not seem to change. Back when I was watching Fahrenheit 9/11 in a grass field just a few blocks from President George Bush’s ranch in Texas, I was overwhelmed with sophomoric fervor for how terrible our leaders had behaved. I was angry, pissed off, and I knew very little more about the situation than what Michael Moore told me. Now I watch his films, and now this teaser trailer for his new “vampire” movie which can only be the lower-form-of-humor reference to blood-sucking bail out banks, and roll my eyes. I probably didn’t realize it before, but Michael Moore is quickly becoming the kid in class that reminds the teacher that she forgot to assign homework.

Now he’s got a PSA-style trailer that would have been done better as an Onion News Network report:

Moore has a keen sense for satire, but he just can’t deliver it dryly enough to make it funny. Instead, he comes off smirking through the whole thing, so self-satisfied that he made a funny. Still no actual footage from the film or a title for it, but I’m glad that he’s out there shilling. Someone has to.

Now that we have someone assigned to place the blame, can we go ahead and assign someone to accept the situation, look toward the future, and find a solution? That would be awesome, thanks.

What do you think? It needs more Bella right?
