Supersize Me

   19 June 2004, late evening

I watched Supersize Me today at the princess. I would have to say the movie is quite funny. The film is about a man who decides to eat nothing but McDonald’s for thirty days. Supersize Me provides a humorous look at the serious problem of obesity in America. I wasn’t expecting the film to be that good, but was actually quite impressed. The filmmaker isn’t trying to make the point that eating nothing but McDonald’s is bad for you. I think most people would already know as much. I think he is simply using his stunt as a means of drawing attention to how ridiculous the fast food industry is. (Although, the doctors were all surprised at how bad his body got. The effects of his fatty diet were akin to some serious binge drinking.)

Some things to keep in mind: You can style comments using Textile. In particular, *text* will get turned into text and _text_ will get turned into text. You can post a link using the command "linktext":link, so something like "google":http://www.google.com will get turned in to google. I may erase off-topic comments, or edit poorly formatted comments; I do this very rarely.
