Most overrated filmmaker in history.

Stone has evidently gotten tired of revising history and has moved on to the present.

he seriously needs to wait about 50 years for the topic to be remotely interesting. people not yet born might find it informative. for anyone alive, it will be reliving a nightmare.

Love Josh Brolin. Don't do it, dude! (plus, he's too young and attractive)

Hate GWB. (obviously)

Also hate Oliver Stone, the biggest hack of all time and living proof that winning the Oscar is meaningless, (also see our current version of Oliver Stone, albeit a nicer, more pleasant one, Paul Haggis)

Oliver Stone does a movie about the Conspiracy to Not Assassinate the President?

Jesus Christ! Stone won an Oscar?

Stone should have been hit by a truck after shooting Platoon. That is the only way I could ever have respect for him. If that happened. Mmmhmm!

Number of competitive Oscars won by Alfred Hitchcock, Robert Altman and Terence Malick: zero.

Oliver Stone has THREE Oscars...two for directing and one for "writing"

'nuf said.

In retrospect, even his "good" movies (Platoon, and, uh, Platoon?) look like crap.

So when's Oliver Stone scheduled to shoot Bush anyway?

I demand to see a shooting schedule!
