Because of Passover, I was unable to attend screenings for most of the movies coming out this week, so I will, unfortunately, be unable to review new releases such as “Grindhouse,” “The Hoax,” and “The Reaping,” all of which I wanted to review for you. My apologies–you are on your own for those. Caveat emptor. (Though, I may see them later and post a review, if I’m so inclined.) On the other hand, it was a nice break for my mind to have a movie-free week.
The one new release I did see, however, is a must-not-see:
“The Situation“–Brought to you by lefty billionaire Mark Cuban, this movie is a sad piece of propaganda against America and in favor of Iraqi insurgents (read: Islamic terrorists).
At the beginning of the film, we see American soldiers harassing and eventually beating and throwing over a bridge two Iraqi teens, who’ve done nothing wrong. The two Mohammeds are good, nice kids. But evil American soldiers kill them to relieve their stress. Nice to defame our troops with this story. The investigation into the soldiers goes throughout the movie, complete with wicked, evil commanding officers upon commanding officers trying to cover it up.
Then, we see a nice family headed by an insurgent terrorist operative. He’s an innocent man, who is wrongly murdered, all because of the botching by the U.S. You know, those insurgents blowing up our troops? Nice, innocent people.
Then, there’s the heroine of this story, reporter Anna (played by Danish actress Connie Nielsen, the live-in girlfriend of Metallica’s twit drummer, Lars Ulrich). Aren’t liberal, America-hating, terrorist-loving reporters always the heroes? Visions of Jill Carroll. Anna is trying to get to the bottom of the story
of the evil American soldiers killing innocent Iraqi kids for sport. And her best friends, an insurgent terrorist and his family, are helping her. Unfortunately, the terrorist is assassinated. That’s the “tragedy” in this movie. Anna is kidnapped by insurgents, who turn out to be really nice people interested in getting to the bottom of evil murders and releasing her without a papercut.
Then there’s Anna’s bed partner, Dan Murphy, the crude, gullible yet jaded and evil, U.S. government administrator. He is trying to give terrorists a hospital to run, in the hopes of changing them. But above all, he’s just an idiotic schemer working with the terrorists. There are echoes of Dan Senor a/k/a Mr. Campbell Brown, who worked as one of the top officials of the U.S. Irag Coalition Provisional Authority. He was a former employee of the Bin Laden Carlyle Group and before that helped pan-Islamist Senator Spencer Abraham squire CAIR representatives around Capitol Hill.
Still, the moral of this long, boring waste of time is this: American troops–evil, killers of innocent Muslim boys for sport; Islamic terrorists a/k/a “insurgents”–nice people who wouldn’t hurt a fly. Leftist reporters who love “insurgents”–beautiful, blonde heroines.
Thanks, Mark Cuban. E-mail Mr. Cuban with your thoughts. Though, the last time I asked you to do that, he couldn’t handle it and filtered out your e-mails. Hopefully, that’s not still the case.
