Seth Rogan & James Franco VS. Kim Jong Un: Maybe Not So Funny?

The Interview, Seth Rogan’s & James Franco’s new upcoming comedy has made huge headlines as it’s pissed off the dim witted manchild Kim Jong Un causing him to declare the movie as an “act of war” if it is released! This is clearly a whole heap of ridiculous BS going here. Not to mention it sounds like the ultimate PR stunt, Kim is totally hyping the shit out of this movie by exploding into a child like tantrum-perhaps he’s in on the gag? In any event on the off chance that the little guy is really serious about his threats, the whole thing just kind of stinks. When I first caught wind of the movie’s trailer it kinda bummed me out. It made me wonder which of these guys were actually more idiotic, Rogan & Franco or Lil’ Kim?!

To me this movie/hype isn’t helping ease any tensions in the world. Franco & Rogan have in my opinion lost their charm some time ago, they kind of embody the pompous, cocky, spoiled American that a good portion of the rest of the world seems to think we are here. I technically should have loved “This is the End”, their apocalyptic comedy released a couple years ago, however, watching that whole crew of actors in that flick had me rolling my eyes at just how ridiculously awesome these guys think they are today. I think, they’ve gotten a little too big for their britches these days. Then reading the comments sections on the news stories online about their new movie “The Interview” from fellow Americans made me kinda sick to my stomach. It seems like the ol’ “Bring it on” mentality is back in effect, here in the USA as people don’t really seem to care at all about the tensions of the world increasing.

So as I agree that Kim Jong Un is a total piece of trash dictator who needs to go, I also see that Seth Rogan and James Franco right now seem like two cocky Americans hiding out in Hollywood having made a movie that taunts a potentially dangerous real life dictator, not really considering the gravity of their actions. Yeah it’s an interesting concept for a movie, but it doesn’t help this completely messed up world that’s far too full of war and violence at this point. The whole situation really isn’t that funny is it? I don’t think there’s anything funny about war or the possibility of war. Now I’ll say this too, I haven’t seen the movie, and perhaps I could be completely wrong  about it’s content and message. Hell, this movie just might change things and who knows maybe Lil’ Kim will even get a kick out of it? I guess it remains to be seen, but so far the trailer has just made the world an even more scary place for the time being. It’s a sad world when the USA’s best diplomat to North Korea is Dennis Rodman….
