Morgan Spurlock Is Back With Another Doc

The man with the greatest fu manchu ever is back with another documentary that will be sure to dazzle us.

This time Spurlock is taking on corporate America, consumerism, and branding. Can’t wait! IMDB says it will be “A documentary about branding, advertising and product placement that is financed and made possible by brands, advertising and product placement.”

Amazing! He’s exposing the truth about the world of buy-this-buy-this-buy-this, by using the technique of buy-this! Genius, pure genius. We absolutely love his narration, his way of explaining things to us, his interviews, and his sense of humour. What’s not to love?

Where in the World is Osama Bin Laden? (2008) was amazing, but it really made me grit my teeth and get angry at the Middle East. I couldn’t help it. The part where Morgan stood in the street talking to his camera, doing absolutely nothing, and the people starting screaming at him because he was white, throwing shit, and pushing and threatening him, made me wanna bash in my tv and go - "He's trying to teach about the plight of your country! You're mad at him and you don't even know what he's saying!" *tears hair out*

This one seems to be a little more light-hearted and fun, although I’m sure it’ll expose some sales tactics that will astound us. In a good way AND a bad way.

How much did you love Super Size Me? I don’t know about you, but it’s a documentary I could watch over and over again. There aren’t many like that, and Christopher Guest movies don’t really count. The McMovie didn’t have the intended effect on me because I only ever want a Big Mac when I watch it. Is that weird? It’s supposed to gross me out but it gives me the mccraving.

Oh well, we can’t wait for this new one! Here’s Mor-Spur himself discussing the new film at the Sundance Film Festival. He just seems like such a nice guy, I wanna squeeze ‘im!

I just saw this at SXSW and it was great! The crowd really loved it. Somewhat boring subject matter that Spurlock made interesting and humorous. He came out onstage dressed in his sponsors suit. I think I fell in love with him after watching this movie...
It's a must!

Really excited for this one… Seeing as Super Size Me was such a big hit, expectations are high on this equally controversial documentary. I think the real question is: “Where will he go next…?”
