As the country slowly descends into anarchy, my friends and I talk about ways to improve our lives and get on with the day. One topic that always seems to come up is the way we eat. We're all free to eat whatever we want, but in America the idea of moderation is in question. Buster's Burger Bar is a favorite hangout for many of our friends, so we decided to get together and watch this documentary to find out what our favorite meal is and to see if it's possible to make it from the comfort of our own home to the country's most famous restaurant. We watch as the famous burger bar is transformed from an abandoned warehouse to a fast food joint. As the film opens we see three young men, one of whom is a bartender, ordering their burgers and fries. These young men sit at a table in the back of the restaurant, waiting to be seated, and we are introduced to George W. Bush. He is the "Burger King President" who, after being chosen, stands outside of the restaurant with his friends while they eat their burgers. Soon he is surrounded by the other customers and ordered a burger for himself and his buddies. He orders fries and a salad. As the group walks into the restaurant he gives each of them a piece of a hamburger to eat, and they take the piece of the burger to their mouths. He begins to watch them and gives them the order to their burger. They all give the orders, and as each person puts the burger in his or her mouth, the movie ends. The film shows the evolution of a fast food restaurant that was turned into an art gallery and all-you-can-eat restaurant. As the film ends, a few of the customers sit down at the table, looking around and talking to one another. Then one of the employees walks over and starts to remove the meat and cheese from the burger before they place it on the table. It was a symbol of the love and dedication of a fast food employee to his or her work. We watched this documentary with a group of friends from the San Francisco Bay area. My favorite thing about the film is the way it shows the fast food industry from the inside out. The employees start out as a group of young workers who are scared to stand up to the company and start an independent restaurant. After being drafted to serve burgers for Burger King, they were given a chance to open a restaurant. They believe that the food is better for them and the company's image. One employee went on to work at a Burger King and become President of the fast food chain. They've become the modern version of The Wobblies, the U.S. workers who fought the U.S. during the War of 1812, led by William Wilmot and the Whigs. The fast food employees at the restaurant are now also learning to stand up to the owners. The real characters in the film are the patrons. They eat at the restaurant and drink in it, and when the burgers are served, they spend a lot of time in the restaurant. The people that worked on the project, the Burger King employees, saw the film as a tribute to their industry, and as a way to see what they were missing out on. It was interesting to see all the different types of people that worked on the project, from the Burger King employees to the customers. Everyone that worked on

When The Great Buster was released to DVD, it was a film that every person with a cinema-vision of the 80's and 90's was excited to have. It was simply an amazing production with high quality production design and acting. When I first heard of the movie, I remember being in awe of how good the film looked and how its story unfolded. I remember how excited I was when I first saw it on TV and then how excited I was to finally see it on the big screen. I remember thinking "it has to be good". I remember buying it on a whim and it being a fun experience. It didn't matter if it was on a big screen or in a theater. It was a film that I could be excited for and was very satisfied with. I recently rewatched the film and I was reminded of all the great things I remembered from the 80's and 90's. It's still a film that I can enjoy and can see myself seeing again. This film is also highly regarded. It was popular in theaters, but it wasn't as popular as it should have been. I think this movie should have been bigger. And I think the movie itself should have received more recognition. But it's still very special. And I think that with the likes of the cast and the crew involved in the making of this film, it can be called a film that is much more than just a film. I do agree that this film could have been better if it was made for television. And maybe that's the problem, if the makers decided to make a big budget film that you can see for free, then they could have used some more money on the making of this film. But, the reason that this film is still so well-known is because it was something different for the time and because it wasn't just another film. I think that it would have been a lot better if it had been a documentary, but that's just my opinion.

While the film is not about gazillions of dollars, it is about something. "To Tell the Truth" is a film about something. It shows the human relationship with money and the choices we make about it. What really interests me about this film is that the main focus is "What is money?" As you see this film you'll notice that the two main characters (Freddie and Blanche) are genuinely fascinated with money. While Freddie and Blanche are not really convinced on the 'value' of money. They think that money is 'stuff' and that it should only be 'used' in the correct way. In the other films of the Pixar Animation Studios, they show us the real impact of money on our lives. While we are away from the big city, they show us how money can actually be used to better things. But, to be honest, these are all pictures of things we are used to. The Great Buster is about something else. It's about an American family who find a little bit of money, and it changes their lives. The first thing they do is to make a "dream machine". This machine, as you see in the film, has amazing possibilities to bring people together. And this is what leads to the amazing story of this family. As this machine is started, they are the only ones who can get it in. All of the other people are required to pay a very high price in order to get it. While in the real world, this machine can bring people together. But, as with most machines, this machine is a little bit too big and that causes it to become un-usable. What the machine doesn't want to do is stop this great event, and the two main characters realize that this machine could be used in a different way. This is what causes them to create this machine, which they use to get money. This film shows the amazing opportunities that money can have. It shows us that in the real world, we should spend our money wisely. But, when money is brought into the family's life, it is really something that the two characters are fascinated with. This is where the real action of this film comes in. They decide to use their money for the family's dream. It shows that the choices we make about money can really have a great impact on our lives. And, in my opinion, this is what I really like about the film. I don't think that it is very obvious, what the real impact of money is. I think that it is something that is hidden away inside us. I think it is something that is very important. This film is really a great reflection on the impact of money, and what can really happen to our lives if we spend too much of it. 8/10

I took the liberty of watching "The Great Buster" a few weeks ago, and I have to say that it was a thoroughly entertaining documentary. It was a little hard to follow, but the themes of family, racism, how movies have evolved over the years, and the history of the black community in the 1940s are all fascinating. I had read some negative comments on this movie, and was surprised at how much more positive they were. I believe that most critics of this movie were too bogged down in their own concerns about whether they liked the movie or not, and really should have seen the film and come to their own conclusion. I would recommend it to anyone, even if you're not a "Slavery" fan. It is a great history lesson, and will keep you entertained for a good 90 minutes. And if you're like me and you like to know a little about the African-American community in the 1930s, you'll love it. My favorite quotes from the movie: - "We should take a song of my own to "America's Sweethearts", like "the stars and stripes" and "this land was given to us by our forefathers", it's a song that I like. And like the other song that the slaves sang, "When we go home, there's nobody to take us to the hills." "The dawn of freedom/ The dawn of freedom" was also a great quote. I also love that they talked about the song "Mississippi" as being the main theme of the movie. The movie also talked about the war, and why blacks had been forced to fight in the war. If you're interested in a movie with a good history lesson, I recommend this one. 8/10

Buster was only one of many young Australians who turned their backs on the dangers of alcohol and towards a more conservative and less-radical way of life. Their lives are brilliantly depicted in this well-paced documentary about the heroes and villains of the early 20th century and what it was like to be young, and unknowing, in this turbulent era. As an actor myself, I was always fascinated by Buster's life. I saw him at his peak in the late 1920s, and he became known as a the drinker and the rebellious youth. I had always had an uneasy feeling that there was something missing from him, but this documentary filled in a lot of the gaps. Buster is shown as a cynical man who ended up being more rebellious than he originally wanted. His mental deterioration over time is shown very realistically, and is painful to watch. He is shown in multiple settings as a young man, in his youth, in his late twenties and late thirties, and all the way to his death. He was an incredibly complex character, and it is interesting to see how he grew and changed throughout the film, and how he changed people's attitudes towards him. I think he was a true hero, who dedicated his life to providing for the needs of others and providing for the welfare of his fellow countrymen. There are many characters in this film, but the ones I most identified with are the following: Wollstonecraft, the spiritualist, who gave him spiritual guidance and counseling; the "Belle Scot" who had strong opinions on the gender roles; the reformer whose philosophy was to provide for the welfare of others, but also to provide for his own desires and ego; the "Buster" who showed that man can still be a rebel, despite the death of his parents and the end of his life. Buster, like many young men in his generation, was ready to take any risk. I am not sure if the documentary shows Buster's true transformation, but it is clear that his views of the world and the world around him changed drastically during his life. The changes in his personality are both shocking and life changing. Buster had the attitude of a man who was extremely fearless, but also who had an outlook on life that was heavily influenced by religious ideas and an understanding of social and economic issues. I think that Buster was the most intelligent man I have ever known and his knowledge of many different cultures and the languages spoken in different parts of the world was quite impressive. This documentary shows many of Buster's different personality traits in an entertaining manner and shows how he was able to change his views during his life and how he affected people's opinions towards him. Overall, the documentary was very well done, showing Buster's varied personality traits, both positive and negative, as well as his gradual and painful changes of mind.
