OK - it wasn't me who pointed this out(so please don't think I'm trying take credit for something I didn't even say in the first place) - in another very recent thread, someone pointed out how the events in the movie "Final Destination" tied in with a couple of people who missed Flight 447(which got crashed), but ultimately saw their deaths through a car accident.

Whoever pointed this out - please take credit for this right now! :)

Also - in my mom's bible study class this morning, one of my mom's friends talked about how when she watches soap operas, she gets so hooked on them, that she just ends up COMPLETELY forgetting about God's word in the bible. Regardless of everyone's religious beliefs here, you have to admit these daytime soap operas are BIG TIME Mind Control tools. Not only you get hooked on them, but they're made in such a way that the average joe watching them ends up talking, thinking, and mimicking almost exactly like the characters in it. Ultimately, it's not so much the content of them, but it's HOW they film them(i.e. they are dark - the camera lighting, music, the delivery of the dialogue, etc).

I watched Enemies at the gate yesterday and heard some good stuff I didn't catch in 2001 when I last saw it. They talked some about socialism and how even tho it sounds like a good idea it doesn't work and there will always be poor people and rich people. Great movie!

Yeah - in both of those movies(the one with a theatrical release AND the made-for-tv one released on the History Channel)...there were scenes where they showed people on the plane calling their loved ones on CELL PHONES. Here's the FACTS about cell phones in HIGH places - there's NO transmitters et al available b/c quite simply, the planes are WAY above the antenna waves et al. It's no different from being way up on the mountains where antenna signals are below you.

I mean if this were, let's say, a no-brainer action flick, then yeah, it's supposed to be for fun. But this was based supposedly on a TRUE story.

Also, one of those movies, if memory serves, had a scene where one of the army people while watching air traffic control made an angry comment over how Bush "was reading little red riding hood to a bunch of school kids". I mean HOW did he know what was going on with the President and his admin team while he was watching a "crisis" in the beginning stages? Even my dad started laughing at this scene b/c he remembered the scene in the Michael Moore film.

On that note I am very interested in the new Terminator movie that will come out that does not have Arnold in it. I view movies like this now as a real window into what NWO plans to do.

Saw the matrix again this weekend and viewed it in a completely different view.

The funny thing about the matrix is that it actually originated as a christian based book and Neo was supposed to be Christ as he sacrificed himself to save mankind and free them from their bondage which was sin.

When I go back in retrospect with this movie, for some reason, the Al Pacino character(Satan) reminds me of this Maitreya figure that I've read and heard alot about. It's as if the establishment is EAGERLY awaiting this Satanic one world leader.

By any chance, does anyone remember the 1993 movie "Dave", where Kevin Kline played a used car salesman, and was subsequently handpicked by the White House's crooked Chief of Staff to replace the current President(who suffered a stroke) b/c they both looked alike?

It's been awhile since I've seen it, but didn't the handpicked stand-in President use a TELEPROMPTER? With all these stories over how Obama and Bush Jr used it all the time, it just occured to me this may have been used in the plotline as well(if I remember correctly). Perhaps conditioning on this movie's part?

Also, someone mentioned "Mr. Smith Goes to Washington" who's plotline involves the entire Congress having corruptions that went WAY deep. I remember an Eddie Murphy movie in 1992, "The Distinguished Gentleman", where he ran for Congress after some prominent Congressman in his area died just for the heck of it. Not only he ended up winning, but when he got to Washington, he got exposed to corruption that went WAY deep down the rabbit hole(no, not just the couple of guys he butted heads with in the movie). Come to think of it, this wasn't the only movie with a political plotline that included this theme(there were numerous others, but can't think of them at the moment).

Was visiting my brother and his family in Louisiana over the weekend - they have the "Wall-E" DVD, and watched it with my 2 year old niece. It had NWO written all over it.

1) The Global dictator(Fred Willard) declared a Global Emergency b/c of "too much carbon" on the earth. Sound familiar?

2) The humans that were hijacked by the aliens were ended up being under an ILLUSION that they were living in PARADISE for the some 5 years they were being so, how? Mind Control via MASS MEDIA tools they were hooked up to. They were brainwashed being so as they were eating all the fast food junk, etc, etc they were being spoiled with so, and were made to think how GREAT they were DESPITE all the fat and laziness/stationary they were put on.

3) Did I mention aliens above?

4) As the illusioned slavery plan was showing their true colors along the way, as the human captain was finding out, Fred Willard started saying things like, "Stay the course". Does this phrase sound familiar?

5) Yeah - even though eventually everyone woke up as this Wall-E character and his renegade alien buddy helped saved the day, the movie ended with that brainwashing "earth worshiping" theme.

Also - in more recent movies/tv shows et al, they're starting to take more more swipes at "conspiracy theorists".

For example, I currently have the Lifetime Channel on, and a movie made by them just this year(Hostile Makeover)...there was just some dialogue b/w 3 women characters taking swipes at conspiracy theorists, even though it has nothing to do with the entire plotline/current scene.

When the company finds itself in trouble financially, they rush the new drug into production without doing enough testing. Things seem to go fine until some of the users of the drug start slipping into comas.

Yep - surprisingly, even all the kids movies have these tyranny et al plotlines that are NWO-ish. Even 1989's "The Little Mermaid" is like that too.

Sure - alot of kids may not comprehend it now, but these messages are STILL filling and conditioning their brains. Like we were mentioning in other threads, no wonder why alot of teens nowdays have mindsets that are enslaving to the NWO.

Sometimes it is good to see where our current elite families come from.  The average person for some reason believes that a "royal" is distinguished as an ethical, humane, and compassionate human.

I invite everyone to watch the movie version of Dumas's book "Queen Margot." I believe it shines a bright light on what kind of people we are dealing with, psycopathic, degenerate, genocidal, suicidal, incestuous rapists:

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Queen Margot (1994 film)
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/La_Reine_Margot_(1994_film)

Directed by   Patrice Chéreau
Produced by   Claude Berri
Written by   Danièle Thompson
Patrice Chéreau
Starring   Isabelle Adjani
Daniel Auteuil
Virna Lisi
Vincent Pérez
Music by   Goran Bregović
Cinematography   Philippe Rousselot
Distributed by   Miramax Films US
AMLF France
Release date(s)   1994
Running time   162 min.
Country   France
Language   French / Italian


La reine Margot is a 1994 film based on the 1845 historical novel of the same name by Alexandre Dumas, père. It was released in the UK under its original French title, and as Queen Margot in North America. The film was directed by Patrice Chéreau.Contents

Synopsis
Isabelle Adjani stars as Marguerite de Valois, better known as Margot, daughter of scheming Catholic power player Catherine de' Medici (Virna Lisi). Although Margot herself is excluded from the throne by the Salic Law, her marriage to a Protestant prince offers a chance for domestic reconciliation during the late 16th century reign of the neurotic, hypochondriac King Charles IX (Jean-Hugues Anglade), a time when Catholics are vying for political control of France with the French Protestants, the Huguenots. Catherine decides to make an overture of goodwill by offering up Margot in marriage to prominent Huguenot and King of Navarre, Henri de Bourbon (Daniel Auteuil), although she also schemes to bring about the notorious St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre of 1572, when thousands of Protestants are slaughtered. The marriage goes forward but Margot, who does not love Henri, begins a passionate affair with the soldier La Môle (Vincent Pérez), also a Protestant from a well-to-do family. Murders by poisoning follow, as court intrigues multiply and Queen Catherine's villainous plotting to place her son, the future Henry III (Pascal Greggory) on the throne threatens the lives of La Môle, Margot and Henri.

Production
The film was an international co-production made by several companies based in France, Germany, Italy, with the additional participation of StudioCanal and the American company Miramax, and the support of Eurimages.

Awards
The film won 5 César Awards and two awards at the Cannes Film Festival. It was nominated for the Academy Award for Costume Design.

The film's original running time was 161 minutes in its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival and in its French theatrical release. However, its American distributor, Miramax, asked the director to re-edit the movie to 145 minutes, and this version was the version seen in cinemas outside France and later on video. The full-length version was available for a limited period in the UK on VHS in a collectors' edition box set in 1995, but all further releases, including the DVD, have used the 145 minute cut.

The re-edited version not only removed scenes, it also added a scene between Margot and La Môle, in which they stand outdoors wrapped in a red cloak. The director had cut this scene from the original 'full-length' version. The scene was re-inserted because Miramax insisted that the relationship between the two characters be more substantial, as the romance was to become the focal point for the American marketing campaign. The 'red cloak' scene appears on the US DVD cover. In contrast the Region 2 European DVD cover uses the original poster, showing a shocked Margot bespattered with blood.

Futureworld is a 1976 sequel to the 1973 science fiction film Westworld. It was written by George Schenk and Mayo Simon, and directed by Richard T. Heffron. The cast included Peter Fonda, Blythe Danner, and Arthur Hill. There is also cameo appearance by Yul Brynner in a dream sequence. This would prove to be Brynner's last film appearance. Other than Brynner, none of the cast members from the original film appear in this one.

The film attempted to take the plot in a different direction from the Westworld movie, but it was not generally well-received by the critics. The film was deemed as lacking in action and the acting was not engaging. It was made by AIP (its predecessor was made by Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, which later bought AIP's successor Orion Pictures).

Synopsis
Two years after the Westworld tragedy in the Delos amusement park, the corporate owners have reopened the park following over $1 billion in safety and other improvements. For publicity purposes, reporters Chuck Browning (Fonda) and Tracy Ballard (Danner) are invited to review the park. Just prior to arriving at the park, however, Browning is given a clue by a dying man that something is amiss.

After some investigation, the two reporters discover that Delos' entire resort is simply a ruse to attract world leaders, the rich, and the famous for a sinister plot. Guests are drugged during their stay through one of their meals (as happens to Browning and Ballard), and during this state of unconsciousness, genetic samples are taken. From the extensive genetic sampling, Delos technicians create fully programmed engineered clones who, with murderous intent, replace the wealthy and influential visitors, thereby allowing Delos to take over the world. As the owner of Delos, Dr. Duffy (Arthur Hill), explains that if it is left alone, the planet would be destroyed by the end of the decade. "We at Delos have no intention of being destroyed by you," he adds. The clones will run the world under Delos control and end political directions the leaders of Delos find threatening. The two reporters are selected for early termination and replacement, but Browning discovers this fact in time. This results in a dramatic chase and battle between the reporters and their doubles.

Having successfully dispatched their twins, the duo make their way to Delos’ airport. Before leaving they come across the project's chief scientist and tell him that they plan to return to the outside world with “glowing reports” of the new resort – just as planned.

However, just as they reach the busy departure lounge, and much to the surprise of the chief scientist, one of the battered and dying evil clones staggers into view claiming, “They’re the wrong ones….”, before slumping to the floor. Exasperated, the chief scientist looks on as Browning flips him the bird and walks to safety, as we hear that the story has been successfully broken to the world.

Futureworld was the first major feature film to use 3D computer generated images (CGI).[1] CGI was used for an animated hand and face. The animated hand was a digitized version of Edwin Catmull's left hand. The movie also used 2D digital compositing to materialize characters over a background.

The Parallax View is a 1974 American thriller film directed by Alan J. Pakula and starring Warren Beatty, who was also a producer. The film was adapted by David Giler, Lorenzo Semple Jr and an uncredited Robert Towne from the 1970 novel by Loren Singer. The story concerns a reporter's dangerous investigation into an obscure organization, the Parallax Corporation, whose primary, but not ostensible, enterprise is political assassination.

The Parallax View is one of a trilogy of thrillers directed by Pakula, along with Klute (1971) and All the President's Men (1976); The Parallax View was the only one not released by Warner Bros. Pictures.

Plot
Newspaper reporter Joe Frady (Warren Beatty), a talented, crusading reporter with a reputation for drunkenness and professional irresponsibility, and (former) girlfriend and colleague, Lee Carter (Paula Prentiss), witness the public assassination of a Presidential candidate, Senator Charles Carroll (William Joyce), in the restaurant of the Space Needle in Seattle. A waiter armed with a revolver is seen as the assassin; he is chased from the restaurant onto the roof of the building, from which he falls. Meanwhile, a second waiter, also armed with a revolver, leaves the crime scene unnoticed; newspapers "officially" report the political killing as the work of a lone gunman. Three years later, while Frady is working for a small-town newspaper in Portland, Oregon, Lee Carter finds him, saying she feels there is more to the killing than mere assassination — that six of the witnesses to Senator Carroll's assassination have died and she fears she will be next. She questions Frady as to why as no one saw anything that differed from the official reporting of Senator Carroll's murder.

Lee Carter does die, ostensibly by a voluntary drug overdose and Frady investigates her leads. He is led to a small town sheriff (Kelly Thordsen) who is an operative of the Parallax Corporation and almost kills Frady, but is killed instead. Frady learns that the Parallax Corp. finds, recruits, and trains sociopaths as political assassins. On surviving a boat explosion in mid-interview of a witness, he then applies to Parallax with an application rigged with a homicidal maniac's psychological evaluation. Soon, Parallax communicates with him, via company-man Jack Younger (Walter McGinn), who assures Joe he is the kind of man they want to hire.

Frady is accepted to Parallax for training; he is audio-visually indoctrinated with a film that conflates positive images with negative actions. Later, he spies a Parallax man heading to a car and driving away; Joe follows him to a parking lot and watches him take out a bag from another car's trunk, then drive to an airport and check it in as baggage. Frady deduces it is a suitcase-bomb and hurriedly boards the plane himself. He notices a Senator seated in the first-class section, but the Parallax Corp. bomber is not aboard. Acting quickly, Frady writes a bomb threat in a lavatory mirror with a bar of soap for the stewardess to find, warning that there is a bomb on the plane, but removes it after finding another passenger is waiting outside the lavatory door. He then writes a warning on a napkin which he is able to slip back into the stack of napkins on the drink service cart the stewardesses are using. The warning is found by a stewardess who reads it and nervously goes to the cockpit. The pilot informs the passengers of technical difficulties and his intent to return to their destination, where they land and are evacuated — just before the suitcase bomb explodes.

Bill Rintels (Hume Cronyn), Frady's generally skeptical editor, is listening to a secretly recorded tape of a conversation between Frady and Younger. Rintels' coffee, which has been poisoned, is delivered to the news office by a Parallax operative posing as a delivery man. After locking up the tape and petty cash in his desk drawer, Rintels is shown eating and drinking. In the next scene Rintels is shown slumped in his chair, and as police arrive, an officer says that it looks to be a simple death by heart attack. A moment later the desk drawer is shown to be unlocked, and while the cash in there, the tape is not.

Continuing his investigation, Frady, who does not know that his editor has been killed, follows the Parallax assassins to the dress rehearsal for a political rally for Senator Hammond (Jim Davis). Frady hides in the auditorium's rafters, to secretly observe what the Parallax men, also in the rafters, are up to. Too late, Joe realizes he was set up as the patsy or "fall guy" to follow them to the auditorium. Frady sees the politician killed, then notices a planted rifle, near him in the rafters. As the rehearsing people in the auditorium look for the gunman, up in the rafters' catwalk, they see Frady lurking. He hides and evades the initial search, but continues his escape from the murder site, and runs to a door open to the exterior, but is shot dead by one of the Parallax assassins on reaching the open door and framed posthumously for the murder of Senator Hammond.

An official assassination investigation committee, the same which determined the lone-gunman killing of Sen. Carroll, officially reports that newspaper reporter Joe Frady was the lone-gun assassin of Senator Hammond. Stating, for the official record, that Frady was obsessed with Carroll-assassination conspiracy theories which led him to kill Senator Hammond. Further, the committee states their hope that the verdict will end political assassination conspiracy theories; and that they will later publish more assassination information in the future. They do not take any questions from the press.

[edit]
Production

Most of the images used in the montage were of anonymous figures, with occasional historical individuals such as Richard Nixon and Adolf Hitler. The montage also makes a great deal of use out of a drawing by Jack Kirby of the Marvel Comics character, Thor.

Such montages were popular in the film schools of the 1970s and can be seen in other contemporary films.[citation needed]

The distinctive anamorphic photography with long lens, unconventional framing and shallow focus was supervised by Gordon Willis.

Three Days of the Condor is a 1975 American thriller film produced by Stanley Schneider and directed by Sydney Pollack. The screenplay, by Lorenzo Semple Jr. and David Rayfiel, was adapted from the novel Six Days of the Condor by James Grady.[1]

The movie is a suspense drama set in contemporary New York City, and is considered an exposition of the moral ambiguity of the actions of the United States government following the Vietnam War and Watergate. It stars Robert Redford as an employee of the Central Intelligence Agency who inadvertently becomes involved in a deadly power struggle within the agency.

The film was nominated for the 1976 Academy Award for Film Editing. Semple and Rayfiel received an Edgar Award from the Mystery Writers of America for Best Motion Picture Screenplay.Contents


Plot
Joe Turner (Robert Redford) is a CIA employee who works in a clandestine office in New York City. He is not a field agent, and indeed bristles at Agency discipline; among other things, he wonders why he can't tell people what he does for a living and notes "I trust some people . . . that's a problem." His job is in the OSINT field: he has to read books, newspapers, and magazines from around the world, looking for hidden meanings and new ideas. As part of his duties, Turner files a report to CIA headquarters on a low-quality thriller novel his office has been reading, pointing out strange plot elements therein, and the unusual assortment of languages in which the book has been translated (Turkish but not French, Arabic but not Russian or German, Dutch, and Spanish).

The movie begins on the day in which Turner expects a response to his report. While he is out getting lunch, a group of armed men, led by an Alsatian assassin later identified as Joubert (Max von Sydow), executes the six people in the office. Turner returns, realizes he is in grave danger and runs out to a phone booth to call an emergency telephone number. He later goes to the home of a co-worker, Ralph Heidegger, who stayed home sick from work, and finds him dead as well.

On giving his code name, "Condor," he is put in contact with Higgins (Cliff Robertson), Deputy Director, CIA New York City. Higgins directs Turner to keep quiet and arranges a meeting. Turner's section chief, Wicks (Michael Kane), states he will go to the meeting to bring Turner in.

Higgins instructs Turner to meet Wicks in an alley on West 74th street. Higgins says he will be carrying a Wall Street Journal in his left hand. Turner replies "f**k the Wall Street Journal", expressing his distaste for that publication. Wicks brings an old friend of Turner's, Sam Barber (Walter McGinn), along to help put him at ease. But Wicks is part of the conspiracy and tries to kill Turner. Turner shoots Wicks who, just before collapsing, shoots Barber; Turner escapes with his life.

Needing a place to hide, Turner forces a woman he sees randomly in a ski shop, Kathy Hale (Faye Dunaway), to take him to her apartment in Brooklyn Heights. He holds her prisoner while he attempts to figure out what's going on. He ties her up in her bathroom and takes her truck to go to Sam Barber's apartment. When he gets there and makes contact with Sam's wife, Mae (Carlin Glynn), she is cooking and readying for a dinner party; she tells Turner that she got a call earlier in the day - from someone unknown - that Sam would be working late. Apparently, she doesn't know what happened to her husband, but tells Turner that someone's been calling and hanging up. It's at this time Turner has her immediately discontinue cooking dinner and go to her friends Bill and Eileen's apartment upstairs. Joubert, arriving by elevator to the floor where Sam's apartment is, sees Turner getting Sam's wife onto the elevator.

Joubert, a tall and imposing figure, enters the next elevator with Turner and has dialogue with him. When Joubert exits the elevator on the first floor, Turner knows that Joubert is probably waiting for him outside. Turner solicits the help of some young people who are hanging around the first-floor lobby to use a coat-hanger to open up his car in which he says he locked the keys. Naturally, it's a ploy to surround himself with innocent people to allow him to escape. Joubert, nearby, has a sniper rifle with a scope and sees that he cannot get a shot at Turner because of all the people with him. He sees Turner get into Hale's truck and uses the scope of his rifle to see the license plate number.

Eventually, Hale is convinced to trust Turner; the gun is put away, and they make love (the scene was controversial for its sexually explicit content at the time). That night, Joubert sneaks into Wick's hospital room and unplugs his life support equipment. The next morning, Hale is taking a shower and Turner is in the kitchen, trying to solve the mystery of the killings and piece everything that's happened on his own.

The doorbell rings and it's a postal letter carrier who says he has an insured package for Hale. Turner says she's not there and the postman says he could sign for it. Turner opens the door and when the postman (Hank Garrett) is getting Turner to sign the receipt, the pen doesn't work. The postman says it's the only one he has, so Turner turns to get a pen but first notices the postman's footwear - dirty boots, not standard issue shoes. Turner grabs a hot pot of coffee from the stove, turns and throws it in the postman's face, just as the postman pulls a silenced automatic gun. The rounds miss Turner and a fight ensues. Kathy emerges from the shower, terrified to find the two men fighting, and hits the assassin once before being knocked to the ground. Turner disarms the postman and after physical exchanges, reaches his .45 pistol and shoots the postman. Turner doesn't find any identification on the body but does find a key stamped with "819" and a piece of paper with a phone number on it: "Five Continents Imports." He calls the number and eventually finds it gets him to the CIA HQ - Wicks' office.

Realizing that he cannot trust anyone within the CIA, Turner begins to play a cat-and-mouse game with Higgins. Turner solicits Hale's help to go to the CIA office at the World Trade Center and pose as a job applicant, where she pretends to take a wrong turn into a restricted area and identifies Higgins by 'mistakenly' walking into his office. She then waits by the lobby elevators until Higgins emerges; she trails him to a lunch café, and sets him up to be abducted by Turner. Turner questions Higgins at gunpoint in the back of Kathy's truck, but Higgins has little valuable information for him. Turner tells him about the postman with the automatic gun and about the tall man following him, whom Higgins identifies as Joubert.

After going to a locksmith to help him identify where and who the key belongs to (lock manufacturers' code engraved on the edge of the key), he locates the Holiday Inn and room where Joubert is located. Using a telephone system repair kit he stole off of a Bell Telephone truck, Turner makes a crank call to Joubert's hotel room, saying, "I'm doing a survey. Do you believe the Condor is really an endangered species?" and hanging up. This prompts Joubert to call his employer, Middle East Operations Director Leonard Atwood (Addison Powell). Turner traces the call to Atwood.

Higgins discovers that the postman who attacked Turner in Hale's apartment was a former US Marine Corps Gunnery Sergeant and CIA operative. After cross-referencing the name with the files on Wicks, finds that he collaborated with both Wicks and Joubert on a previous operation called "Lucifer 2." Turner calls Higgins to find out who Atwood is. The stunned Higgins can't reply, since the same Atwood that Turner is implicating in this conspiracy is sitting in the very same room as Higgins and his superior, Mr. Wabash (John Houseman). Knowing that Wicks was silenced for a reason, Higgins puts the pieces of the conspiracy together and informs Wabash, who implies that the matter should be closed using outside help, if necessary.

Turner and Hale say their goodbyes at the train station and Turner takes the train to Maryland. He tracks down the renegade CIA director to his home and questions him at gunpoint and learns that Wicks told Atwood about Condor's report, which was why his "section" was hit. It was Atwood's network he discovered. Turner pieces it together on his own, the renegade plan to take over middle east oilfields.

Joubert surprises them and unexpectedly kills Atwood. The contract has now changed; even though Atwood had hired Joubert to terminate Turner before, Atwood's superiors hired Joubert to now terminate Atwood. Turner is dumbfounded, realizing that Joubert and he are on the same side (for the moment), working once again for the CIA. Since the CIA has made no arrangement with Joubert concerning Turner there's no reason to kill Turner. Joubert cautions Turner that he is no longer safe in New York, and advises him to relocate—possibly to Europe. Turner declines, saying he would always feel homesick for the United States. When Turner asks Joubert why he kills for a living, Joubert says he never, "asks Why, only thinking of Where, When, and always How Much", contradicting Turner's assumption that such a life would be unbearable by implying that it's peaceful and that there are no sides to follow but rather "...the belief is in your own precision." Before they part, Joubert warns Turner that he is still a target and tells him how he will likely be set up for his own assassination. He then returns Turner his gun to use when that day comes.

Turner goes back to New York and meets Higgins on a busy street. When Higgins offers him a ride, Turner recognizes Joubert's warning and turns him down. When Turner quizzes Higgins about Atwood's plans, Higgins defends the oil-fields plan, claiming that there will be a day in which oil shortages will cause a major economic crisis for the country. And when that day comes, Americans will want the government to use any means necessary to obtain the oil. Turner says he has told the press "a story" (they are standing outside The New York Times office), but Higgins questions Turner's assurances that the story will be printed. After a brief dialogue, an anxious Turner glances at Higgins and the New York Times office, then hastily walks away. The final shot is a freeze frame of Turner passing behind a Salvation Army band singing Christmas carols while looking over his shoulder back at Higgins.

Not as overt as a truth movie, but this seems to be one of the first attempts (for a major movie production with decent actors) at exposing how international banking elite and the CIA not only knew about 9/11 but that they were actively working on stopping potential whistleblowers in the few days before 9/11/2001.

Interesting about The Parallax View b/c Alan J. Pacula has directed numerous NWO-themed movies throughout his career.

"All The President's Men" was nothing more than a watered-down Watergate version over what REALLY happened. It painted Woodward and Bernstein as these *big heroes* who supposedly blew the lid over the scandal. However - over the long haul, Woodward and Bernstein have shown(to pretty much everyone who's AWAKE) that THEY THEMSELVES are part of the NWO-establishment(i.e. Woodward's 3 books on Bush's 9/11, Afghanistan, and Iraq pretty much did everything it could to paint the Bush admin in at least a semi-positive light, while at the same time it pretended it wasn't. Bernstein wrote an anti-Hillary book...of course, Hillary was nothing more than a distraction to the masses by the NWO).

"The Pelican Brief" - the *good* guys were these so-called *environmentalists*, while the *bad* guys were not so much big oil guys, but those who wanted to drill oil on OUR soil.
