Are you planning to see the movie Fast Food Nation?

I want to see it. I like Richard Linklater movies.

I also read a lot of the book and want to see how they turned it into a movie.

But I've a bit of trepidation, because it's said to be really graphic.

I don't eat a lot of fast food, but I'm still a little queasy about seeing the movie.

Probably will, though ...

  1. Sure. I will watch it when it comes to Netflix.

    1. Absolutely, tomorrow in NYC. And I loved the book. The enemy is big agribusiness and massive food processing plants and chains. The answer - support local farmers and producers and those restaurants that do so.

      1. I see it everytime I go into a Walmarts. (Sorry if that sounds elitist. I DO shop there.)

          I'm from Arkansas originally, and I just have to tell you that it's "Walmarks". Don't ask why. I have no idea. But it has been ever since they've been around.

        2. I believe it only opens in LA and NYC tomorrow.

            Not true. It's playing here in Portland. I'll see it this week.

          2. When I can get it in Blockbuster. I loved the book - I already knew much of what was written in it, but it did open my eyes up to things that I was unaware of and once again made me pull-back from eating fast food when I have a better choice available. But, I don't know if I want to spend $20 for us to see in on a big screen - don't think it's that worth seeing (it hasn't been getting very good reviews this far).
