Super Size Me

Super Size Me (2004)Super Size Me” is one of those hyped up documentaries that were released recently. For once it wasn’t about politics, so I decided to watch it. It was about junk food in general and McDonald’s in particular.

I liked it. It was informative, interesting, and it was funny at places.

But most of all, it worked. During the course of the film, I felt glad several times. I felt glad about not eating as much junk food as I used to. And further on, I practically decided not to drink anymore Coke. I am still thinking about it, but I am almost convinced. I’ll stay with water, juices, and beer. Maybe tea or coffee occasionally. I am not drinking that much Coke anyway, but as bad as it gets, I figured why bother at all? Yeah.

So, I think its saying something – the film was really good and served the point.
