  • I Suppose They Didn’t Get the Word That the Warsaw Pact Countries Aren’t Communist Anymore

    Posted by James R. Rummel on February 6th, 2005 (All posts by )

    I wasn’t any too thrilled with World Police. A savage lampoon of Hollywood politics, sure, but I already knew that those guys out in Tinsletown were hopelessly Left. I did think that the technical art shown by making a movie using marionettes was impressive, but it wasn’t enough to carry the entire film.

    In case you didn’t see it, the movie is about a plot by North Korean dictator Kim Jong Il destroy the world, aided by clueless Lefty actors.

    Now North Korea is making demands to the Czech Republic to ban the film, saying that it harms the image of their country.

    The Czech Foreign Ministry pretty much told NK to get bent.

    “We told them it’s an unrealistic wish,” ministry spokesman Vit Kolar was quoted as saying. “Obviously, it’s absurd to demand that in a democratic country.”

    You tell ’em, Kolar.

      Haha – this is hilarious. Fact does trump fiction pretty often (especially if you are talking about Commies or Democrats), this is beyond parody.

    2. Ginny Says:

      Don’t you love the respectful understatement: “unrealistic wish.”

    3. Patrick Chester Says:

      …and here I was fearing that Kim Jong Il would be inspired by the film. Or at least get a shark tank.

      “I’m so woanwee…”

      If there was ever a guy the world (and millions of starving Koreans) would be better off without, Kim Jong Ill is it.

      I guess this means Kim Jon Il saw the movie!

      I’ve been predicting that Team America will bring down the North Korean government. You got to believe that there are clandestine showings of the movie in North Korea, with people laughing their asses off at seeing Dear Leader lampooned.

    7. Ralf Goergens Says:

      Why did they only tell the Czechs to ban it? Maybe it was the idea of NK’s Ambassador in Prague to do that, and not the government’s.

      Warning to parents, don’t take your kids to see Team America. I thought it was a funny movie, but there are some things I never thought I would see marionettes do…
