• What’s Even Lamer Than Canceling “The Interview”? Canceling “Team America” Too

    After Sony Pictures made the ridiculous decision to cancel the release of Seth Rogen and James Franco’s flick The Interview in the wake of threats from North Korea, some moviegoers were relieved to hear that at least one movie theater had decided to fight back…by announcing a screening of Team America: World Police to take its place. As you’ll recall, that film — a brainchild of the creators of South Park — made an absolute mockery of then-dictator Kim Jong Ill, and did it all through the use of hilarious puppetry.

    The theater that had planned on showing Team America was the Alamo Draft House in Dallas, but it now appears that Paramount Pictures is full of just as many wussies as Sony Pictures is. They’ve banned the Alamo and other theaters from showing this film as well, marking an absolute sad day for freedom of expression.

    With Sony and Paramount running the entertainment business and Barack Hussein Obama as our Dear Leader, the United States now has all of the ingredients to become a complete dictatorial regime like the ones we claim to oppose. Yay, censorship!

    Incidentally, Team America has yet to see a Blu Ray release in the U.S., despite the film being 10 years old and widely available on standard DVD. Special Tenth Anniversary Edition, anyone? Matt and Trey, are you listening?
