Day Three? no, four... whatever. Started off with this doc about Arnold and how evil he is. It was ok. yeah, barely ok. The thing that surprised me most about it was the Q&A afterward where pretty much everyone criticized the director and producer in attendance for not making a balanced film. I even heard people behind me talking about Michael Moore's work and how great it is but they still found a major fault in this movie being one-sided. I don't get that at all. But what made it worse was that the filmmakers said they thought it was pretty fair. I don't believe they should be ashamed for making a one-sided doc but... come on... don't call it balanced when you're showing tabloid-worthy unflattering photographs and using audio from The Terminator where Beihn describes a world run by a machine set to images of Arnold shaking hands and smiling behind podiums.
