Here is the Team America behind the scenes part covering Kim Jong and how they did his character.
Personally, if it had been me, I would of felt honored to have a villain like this made after me.

Anyways, I thought it might fit into the thread.

Somebody needs to make an Obama puppet movie. Preez?

Although not technically a movie, it's far closer to reality than anything you might see in the MSM...

There are 19.

Which do we get rid of?

If anything we are looking at a new one getting created,

Since all those deal with protecting government networks.

Them evil corporations are on their own.

WE need most of them.

The OICI,HSI,TFI,I&A,cyber Comm could be rolled in to another one.

Like the FBI, and do away with DHS.

The why part?

Events, like Sony,Sydney,Pakistan,9-11. etc.

There are redundant agencies.

And when there are failures ?

That's mostly on the ODNI.

We only need two Alphabet agencies. CIA and FBI. All the rest need to go...oh perhaps an IRS but way cut down when we do a flat rate tax of 10 percent on everyone and force the government to budget within their means.

A general reply to the thread

Some of you really scare the cap outta me with yiur mindsets

I love stone and parker . If I was a seahorse I'd be pregnant with their little horse babies

team America in particular and south park in general is some of the greatest work ever made and displayed

And as much as I hate to say It

Kim doesn't die in team america. He loses his human body and returns to planet geron (spelling probably wrong)
In a spaceship as a hissing roach .

but since I actually own the movie in my rather brief video library I'll say buy the two disk one. Watch it all. And those who do will know one thing if nothing else

I don't think we'd threaten to blow that country's citizens up in movie theaters.

Since when is making a film about killing an actual, living person and leader of a country funny?

What moron green-lighted this idiocy? If I were him, I'd be pretty pissed too. That's all.

I don't understand this whole idea of....they caved, it's spineless, we have the right to...Let's look at the reality here. Why would one want to insult a whole nation? Because we can? But...but...I mean WTF? I abhorr the way this whole situation has arisen, hacked company, emails etc...but wow! What is to be gained by the whole "let's belittle other countries and their leaders" thing? In the name of freedom of speech and entertainment? There should also be the right to be respected but you don't find that in the human rights bill right? We as human beings need to grow the F*** up and understand that actions have consequences.
Just my 2 cents etc.

After Sony Pictures pulled "The Interview", at least 3 movie theaters promised to show "Team America - World Police" as a stand against the North Korean threats and the cowardly acts of the movie studio executives.



Well, now Paramount Pictures have pulled "Team America" too!!!!! and the movie theaters are having to issue refunds!

www.huffingtonpost.com...
www.thedailybeast.com...

I'm just so disgusted!

We are watching Team America this weekend at my house in protest..while we still can watch what we want in our own living rooms. #fightthepower #america#yeah!!!

"It's called caving to terrorism and by doing it, you show that their tactics can not only be successful, but actually produce measurable results."

It's called admitting when things have gone too far.

EDIT:
I absolutely love Seth Rogen, the man is one of my faves but...what possible, and I mean possible good could this movie do in the real world? I mean how, in any way possible, can this movie contribute to the betterment of the human race? Let's ignore the current political climate, the fact that we are on a knife-edge geo-politically speaking.
Let's forget that the world is not exactly in the best of shape as regards health, poverty, hunger, unemployment, hell even spirituality or morality...how could this film ever help? In any way?
Damn it seems we have lost the compass.

Are we confusing tyrants and dictators for leaders? I ask that seriously. I wouldn't call Water Buffalo Bill here

a leader because nobody is actually choosing to follow him. This isn't a situation where they made a funny about killing a beloved world figure or even a legitimate world LEADER. It's a comedy movie about offing an international pain in the ass with a small fat boy complex and a genetic predisposition to megalomaniacal hissy fits and ridiculous ranting threats. If there was anyone on the face of God's Earth who deserved mockery, pointing, and laughter, it's the Kims (Il, Un, and Kardashian.)

I am asking you directly, what possible good can come of the American DEMAND for entertainment when the only possible outcome is POLITICAL animosity?

I guess they could show Red Dawn (2012). A bunch of high school kids kicking the NK army's butt lead by the guy that plays Thor.

Maybe you missed this, that Neo posted a few pages back. Check out the Korean Pro-Nationalist video in which the young man dreams of nuclear was on America.



Remember That Time North Korea ‘Nuked’ America and No One Cared?



We belittle our own government and our own leaders. Don't underestimate the power of satire. Where would we be without political humor.

Also, I'm not briefed by the CIA, but I'd be willing to bet that Kim Jong Un is a Wanted Man!




The rule of the tyrants decline
The year, 1979
From uganda to nicaragua
It's bombs and bullets all the time
So they corrupt, so they vile
So it's coup after coup all the while
Human rights they violate
They think they too damn great
So in disgrace now they live in exile

Gairy is a wanted man
Idi amin is a wanted man
Shah of iran tried so hard to survive
He too was wanted dead or alive

Strikes, demonstrations & wars
Injustice is always the cause
Politicians turn too soon from
Poor people into tycoons
Corruption must bring harass
South african vorster resign in disgrace
Muzurewa take away ian smith place
The uganda devil was easily cat straddled
Beaten up and chased, what a waste.

Gairy is a wanted man
Bokassa is a wanted man
Ali bhutto try so hard to survive
He too was wanted dead or alive.

The shah had a short time to live
Because the ayatollah don't forgive
When you see church ruling state
With pure vengeance and hate
Situation must be explosive
General somoza from nicaragua
Thought it was easy with the sandanistas
With the help of venezuela, panama and cuba
They kick him straight to america

Gairy is a wanted man
Park chung hee was a wanted man
Achem pong tried so hard to survive
He too was wanted dead or alive

Gairy is a wanted man
Idi amin is a wanted man
Shah of iran tried so hard to survive
He too was wanted dead or alive

Bang...you're dead

So am I to assume, by your own words, that the best way to seek some kind of harmony or peace is to add fuel to the fire?
What am I missing here? I live on this planet, I have no control over the events that happen here. I don't want this planet to be ruined for my son. I don't believe that creating hatred, anger or mistrust will lead to a brighter future. So what are you saying, smile while the boat sinks?

No, I'm saying that humor is a necessary and powerful tool. Humor is lot better than guns and bombs and assassinations, in a world of guns and bombs and assassinations.

So much for not giving in or negotiate with any terrorist.
I thought we were supposed to go about our everyday life. shop, go to the mall and go to theater's to stand up for our way of life. Not to give into terrorist.......... At least that was what I was told.


That's was another administration so I guess things change, instead of duck and cover now we run and cower.

I say to hell with both side the rich entertainment industry and those pesky little NK terrorist. I'm watching team American now on blue ray and after that I'm going to watch the documentary of the dentist that filmed inside NK.

FAIL!

I consider it in poor taste, but the movie wasn't a comedy resulting in the brutal and graphic assassination of a sitting head of state.

This is when he is shot:
www.youtube.com...

It doesn't glorify his fictional death, while (from what I've heard) The Interview does. The mockumentary is positing a scenario where things get even crazier afterwards - more civil liberty losses, etc. Not exactly a fair comparison.
