Ted, more likely a Libertarian, the Right's useful idiots.
And "righties" only know one tired stupid joke they keep saying over and over again.
"Lefty lefty lefty lefty." All... Fucking... Day... Long...
Because you can't check alternative media sources in the United States. No sirree, there's only one state broadcaster that plays nothing but pro-US government material all year long...
Fucking hell, you fucking moron. There's lots to condemn the US over, but I'd say it would be hard to think of a country with more diversity of voices, to the point of a loud braying cacophony.
The real highlight came with the "I'm gay" Eminem interview at the beginning. My hats off to Marshall Mathers.
The next 105 minutes was a bit of a let down.
It's North Korea. They spend half their time proclaiming how they're going to wipe out their enemies. They're media is in a constant state of hysteria.
That's utter BS. The UN released a report on human rights violations months before The Interview became a big issue. You should read it. The treatment of political prisoners (and christ, even unlucky bastards who happen to be distaff kin) is so harrowing that the only thing that really does come close was the Nazi death camps.
Part of the problem is the length. If they had cut out twenty to thirty minutes it would have been better. There is a tolerable 90 minute movie sitting there.
I thought the head explosion scene was pretty anticlimactic. If you're going to make this kind of movie, why tuck your balls away at the climax?
First Seth Rogen movie for you? I thought it was one of his better ones, though I still think it sucked. Still, despite all the schlock, it did make the important point that North Korea is a vile regime that condemns millions to near-starvation conditions while the elite live in astonishing luxury. It paints with a broad brush to be sure, but beneath it all there is a true chord playing.
If the movies were enjoyable, I might, but they suck on their own terms as well as adaptations of a much beloved book.
The first one had its moments, but the second was jaw droppingly dull, and worst of all Jackson mutilated the escape from the Elf king's tunnels. They took the barrel rider scene and turned it into a video game.
I have no desire to sit through the third.
And what happens to the Chinese economy when US orders suddenly dry up.
China is in a position to do the US significant harm, but in the process utterly devastating its own economy.
Man of Steel sucked. Even the ponderous Superman Returns was better. Hell, Superman IV was better.
We could make him so fat he damages his own joints... Damn, he even beat us to that bit of parody.
I don't think NK is a satellite state in the usual sense of the word. China certainly shields NK, but its reasoning isn't always clear. NK does act as a major counterbalance to US interests (Japan, South Kore and Taiwan). At the same time, NK seems extremely suspicious of China and some believe that at least part of the reason for the latest purge was to cut out members of the regime with too close a ties to China.
