I believe I remember he was David Lynch's assistant when he pitched a scavenger hunt movie that actually sounded pretty good.

Roth's vacant performance nearly ruined Basterds.

I couldn't agree more. Mélanie Laurent was the best part of that mess of a movie.

should be the followup

is the title for the next movie in the series.

...is about Authority, Obedience, and Trust (not a measure of Evil) Shame on Eli Roth. He should know better than to confuscate and distort. Frakkin' hack.

agree with you about roth, but you mixed "confuse," "obfuscate", and "confiscate" into a whole new swirly flavor there.

because there is no job dirtier than that on this entire planet.

I'm sure we're all impressioned with your vocublatic skillionizing. But the fact remains, Roth confruscated and distorted the Milgram experiment. That's the G**damned point we should be focalizing on!

Although he's weirdly handsome, in a rapey way.

It's not as if it's obscure or something.

If it wasn't for the the gimmicky "scare-tactics" approach. I don't really see a reason to redo the experiment. The fact that the new footage even uses some scare-tacticsesque shots kind of reinforces the idea that this is just some stupid spooky Halloween season programming pretending to be a documentary so ignorant parents can smile with approval while their kids sit glued to the tv.

This guy actually scares me. This show must be his way of showing how he is no different than other people. I am not convinced nor do I care to find out. I will never see or experience anything he is involved with. End of line

Worth watching, in my opinion.

2 groups. Put 50 atheists and agnostics through it. Then 50 people of various religious faiths, only selecting those who checked off *consider yourself of STRONG religious conviction and faith* rather than those who just identify with a particular faith. You'll want *true believers* (or those who claim it). Those results would be predictably enjoyable. And I'd put hard money down on the atheists/agnostics actually having more real compassion and integrity when it came down to it. Don't agree? Run the experiment. I'd love to be proven wrong. Does the concept bother you in some way? What are you afraid of? In my opinion, people who are deeply religious tend to have a stronger will to please authority that overpowers their compassion almost EVERY time. Almost. That's my prediction. And remember, science isn't *mean* or prejudiced. It's just a recording of human behaviour (in this case), and the only people you'd have to blame are the participants. The only problem with a mass-media exposure of this experiment is that from now on, you can count on the results less and less because people can be very dishonest. I guess they would have to weed out those who were familiar with the term/name *Milgram*. But even then.... In any case, I doubt anyone with the resources has the balls to do it anyway. So rest easy. Or waste your own time being pissed off about the concept. Up to you. I just think it would be fun information to have floating around out there.

already proved that under the right circumstances, anyone can turn evil. No need for this show.
Oct. 28, 2011, 11:30 p.m. CST
If you think choosing authority, obedience and trust over basic human compassion isn't a good definition of evil, I'm more worried about you than Roth. Or maybe you define evil based on more superficial things. *hugs*

It's not a documentary.

Except for muslims. Just ask Jay Leno's wife. Or any liberal.

About religious people generally being capable of more brutality than atheists are. It's not rocket science, though. Religious people are generally missing something in the first place.

This is like the police reaching out through the media to a serial killer, isn't it? I ain't gonna bite. LIKE YOU BITE ELI ROTH'S GINORMOUS FAKE COCK! AYIIEEEEEEEEEE!!!!
