    Michael Moore sues for 9/11 profits after already pocketing $19.8 million

    Michael Moore vs Movie Accounting: Sues Weinsteins For More 9/11 Movie Profits After Already Pocketing $19.8 Million; Yes Or No – “He Redefines The Term Greedy”? – Deadline.com

    Moore is seeking at least $2.7 million from the Weinstein Brothers in what he claims are "rerouted" and unpaid profits. Why is it I think Harvey has finally met his match in Michael, and vice versa? The Weinsteins have already paid Moore $19.8 million for his backend profit participation in the movie.
    And this is the man constantly lecturing us about corporate greed?

    Get your money, Mike, but stop pretending to be different than those you attack.

    I get what you're saying. You are all for captialism and entitlement unless it's a liberal and/or Michael Moore.

    Gotcha.

    The film industry has a long history of fraudulent accounting in order to avoid paying royalties. I am no fan of Moore personally, but in this case he is definitely the lesser evil.

    Actually, I think he was saying Michael Moore is a ****ing hypocrite for whining about corporate greed on one hand, and screaming 'give me money' on the other.

    Not a fan of Moore. But am suspecting there is more to this story than the initial sensational headline.

    Will be curious to hear the details when they come out......

    I do not think he is totally greedy. He has in the past given the okay to pirate his films as long as you are not trying to profit from them. Now if he was totally greedy he would have hopped on that Metallica band wagon suing peer to peer sites and anyone else trying to download his **** for free.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    That's because Moore is smarter than Metallica. Moore knows that his movies if seen my more people, will get him a % of more followers after the movie has been released. His old movies - sure! Pirate the hell out of them He'll still make more on his next movie's box office tally. Metallica was way too stupid to understand that concept - which is why we don't hear from Metallica any more.

    I'm literally shocked we have yet to open the morning paper and enjoy the pleasure of finding the obituary of this stinking behemoth.

    What kind of losers (please speak up so I can see you) watch this pig's landfill and support him? The fat douche.
