Team America: World Police (2004)
Definitely the best (marionette puppet) movie of all time...
...by the creators of South Park. These guys keep making "great" movies, this one possibly being the best. A truly original, at least in its genre, it's yet another on-the-money commentary on the good ol' US of A, with a splash of total absurdity. I say "great" because their movies are always over-the-top crude, usually stupid in several ways, but still intellectually hilarious and accurate to some extent. Everything is right-and wrong-about this movie(luckily, all the wrong things are wrong in the the best ways possible). Trey Parker and Matt Stone make it very clear that they take issue with everyone, especially extreme rightists and leftists. Their are too many incredibly funny things about this movie to list, so suffice it to say that this movie is absolutely worth watching unless you seriously restrict your movie taste so much that you blindly refuse to watch it, as did my wife. In that case you would hate it whether you watched it or not, which is the biggest problem with their movies and with South Park. The medium is often so foul and inappropriate that the message doesn't get delivered to anyone but those who can 1)stomach the vulgarity, and 2)be of adequate intellect to understand the social and political relevance. My wife is a great example. She will never watch South Park but if I watch an episode and relay it to her, she thinks it's hilarious, but still refuses to watch it-not even the episode I relayed, which she thought was so hilarious! She can't stand the inappropriateness of it, but loves the messages. Don't be like her, watch this movie. If for no other reason watch it for the fact that its the biggest marionette production ever, which is the last reason I would have watched it.
8.1 stars? Huh? Wha?
Unless you're a fan of the show, this movie is WORTHLESS. There is really no background on anything or anyone in the movie. It's purely directed at the fans of the show. 8.1 stars is shockingly misleading. I made the mistake of seeing it based on its IMDb rating. I guarantee that if the show never existed, this movie would have scored like 1 out of 10. I saw it in the theater and I could not even begin to explain it to anyone afterward. I am a major science fiction fan and I can't stress enough how convoluted it was. The weirdest thing of all: when the movie ended all these Firefox (or whatever the show was called) geeks stood up and applauded! At that point I thought I was in outer space.
