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?
