I used to like Matt Damon. That was before Bush bashing anti-war movies became the logical progression from his pseudo-intellectual Sarah Palin psychobabble.

Instead of taking a step back and reflecting on why, exactly, Trey Parker and Matt Stone portrayed him as a simpleton Kim Jong Il apologist in Team America: World Police, Matt dove headfirst into the liberal Hollywood apparatchik. But what Scotty doesn’t know is that half of America doesn’t take kindly to knee jerk national self-flagellation from self-righteous know-it-alls who play a movie with “Legend” in the title before becoming one…in their own mind.

If Matt Damon was smart he’d play Marcus Luttrell in the movie version of Lone Survivor: The Eyewitness Account of Operation Redwing and the Lost Heroes of SEAL Team 10. But he’s not. That’s because he hangs around with his liberal buddy who’s so uber beta-male he convincingly fell in love with a lesbian and made a lucrative career out of being one hell of a wincer.

Instead of watching Green Zone, just watch the trailer for Young Americans about ten times. And then, watch another Paul Greengrass film you might remember: United 93. Or, just relive that day in your mind. You know, the one talking heads on cable television said they’d “never forget” right before they did.

And no, I can’t resist: How do you like them apples, Matt?

  1. Couldn’t agree with you more Doug. I was really excited for Green Zone until I heard the politics behind the movie. Let’s hope they make a movie soon about Marcus Luttrell too!

    1. That book was amazing… I heard they were going to bring it to the big screen, but that was awhile ago. I’ll have to see what’s going on with that. Knowing Hollywood, they’ll have Michael Moore direct it.
