Following this post as an outsider(non american) i really dont understand why some of you want to "hang her like a common horsethief"and some want to let her go!WAIT DONT KILL ME JUST YET!READ ON!Living in greece,where "Piracy"its just another Foreign word,you can buy anything from Music to the latest Movie(both foreign & greek)openly at streetcorners or harbours.They even come to coffeeshops or workshops to offer theire ware!Now my point is:some of the movies(i.e Spiderman3)was on sale here long before its release to the cinemas.It had the studios logo superimposed on the screen.So i dont think it was recorded with a handheld little camera!And no way it comes from China!There are Bigger fish out there(USA)but it seems easier to catch & procsecute the smaller once!

I think you mixed some things together here, so Ill just go for what I can figure out goes together.

I wouldn't go so far as calling Michael Moore an idiot, but he sure does inflated one sided stories. But there is some factual content.

Calling anyone an "idiot" just because he/she see's something from another angle, that you do not agree with, isn't to bright. We all have different views of everything because of personal reasons, that are sometimes infuenced by our emotions, not pure logic.

First, I don't call Moore an idiot because he doesn't agree with me. I call it how I see it, his actions are atrocious. Making money off the suffering of others. Telling half-truths to millions. Spinning and contorting what people tell him. Only displaying bits and pieces of long conversations so that it fits his story. Bullying answers out of people not qualified to answer the questions. I could go on all day. The guy is an idiot, just because he is.

"Sejas was enjoying the movie so much that she decided to film a short clip of the sci-fi adventure's climax to get her little brother hyped to go see it". Common sense indicates that if she was filming the movies climax, that it would be near the end of the movie.

Conjecture based on at least 3rd hand information. One of those hands being the media which in itself is wholly untrustworthy.

Besides which, Ive seen Transformers, there is more than 1 "Climax" to that movie.

Everyone puts out propaganda. Even your own government. And you just proved a point I made, "as you see it". "Spinning and contorting what people tell him. Only displaying bits and pieces of long conversations so that it fits his story. Bullying answers out of people not qualified to answer the questions".

Removed Political references

The definition of climax-(in a dramatic or literary work) a decisive moment that is of maximum intensity or is a major turning point in a plot or, the highest or most intense point in the development or resolution of something. So I doubt there were multiple climaxes in that movie.

Again, conjecture. You assume that the "reporter" went exactly by the literal meaning of the word? Are you sure it was just at the climax, or maybe a bit before, because that may change things.

Ive never made a point for you. I leave my tinfoil in the kitchen drawer.

This thread is going in circles, and not getting anywhere. Now would be a very good time to put it to rest. :whistling:
