I don't care what their point is, that clip is just tasteless humour. is isn't even that funny, and it is making fun of a very serious subject. I agree that our government situation is intolerable a lot of the time, but you don't do shit like that. That is going to piss a lot of people off, and it should.
I have no reason to be ashamed. I'm not a communist, like you apparently. Just because you have an issue with someone making a movie with this content, doesn't mean you need to whine about said movie. This is America, love it or deal with it, people can do most anything they want. That being said, people can find funny what they want. Don't think you're all high and mighty because you're too sensitive for this day and age. This world is a cold one, better learn to toughen up.
Ok, I can see how you can be for the movie, or against it, but saying it's "too soon" doesn't really make any sense. If your arguement is that it is tasteless to make a joke about something that killed many people, how is allowing "more time" going to make those peoples' deaths any better? So you're saying a human life has worth? It's only good for what? 10 years? 20 years? After that does it lose it's value?
I personally don't care one way or the other about the movie. People make comedy war movies all the time, and millions of people die in our wars. How is that different? The only reason I think it might be a bad idea, is that since Americans are stupid, the people who do care might try to hurt the actors or people involved for doing such a "terrible" thing.
I rescind my previous comment of "Too soon". After reading snwbrdmilfs post Im going to have to agree. We are so sensatized to incidences such as these regarding our own nation that most of us have jumped up to condemn this. After thinking about it I think this movie is beneficial. it takes a German filmmaker with outside funding to make a hollywood style movie to show us in North America that the rest of the world really doesnt care about how we suffered on 9/11 anymore. Let me put this in perspective. Go to youtube, search "Iraq" or "Insurgency", watch some videos and read the comments, most of them will be redneck hicks cheering on the soldiers in the videos blowing up some building, or else jeering some insurgency video of a tank being blown up; comments such as lets nuke all them iraquis or, God bless America are not uncommon. How about all the Iraqi civilians we've killed since 9/11? Far more have died than in the World Trade Centre, are their lives more or less valuable then American ones? Who the fuck are we to judge? POINT IS that media is so censored here that very rarely do we hear foriegn perspective on American issues. Satire is one of the critic's best tools. Thank god for the film industry, and I'm excited to see what kind of reaction this one gets.
sorry but ashley didn't write that. it was copied from the site
i found the trailer quite funny. because i'm always arguing with people about how many virgins they get. the last part was a little bit of a killer. its only been 6 years and the killing is still a sore spot. it is needed in the movie but maybe not in the trailer. but i wholeheartedly support this movie. the world is so damn screwed up these days maybe humor is the only way of showing us we are acting like uncivilized heathens for immediatly fearing every dark skinned person wearing a turban these days, or saying that its ok to have free speak for some but not others. i think we need this film to show a certain group in america that we don't support the hatred of entire countries just because you tell us they are evil. and that not everyone supports the war, so one with more political bullshit
All certainly true.
I knew she didnt write it lol, was just quoting 'her' post.
