Movies I’d love to see … but never will

Movies I’d love to see … but never will

Hey, Hollywood, why don’t you consider greenlighting the following. Can’t do any worse that “Body of Lies,” right?

  • End in Sight” – The riveting sequel to “No End in Sight,” the 2007 documentary about the quagmire that once was the Iraq occupation.
  • Stealing America: Acorn Edition” – Ripped from the headlines, this docu-sequel examines the corrosive effect the Acorn nonprofit group had on the 2008 presidential election. Imagine the movie poster – “If you thought every voted counted only once … think again!”
  • Generic Afghanistan War Action Hero” – This pitch is a bit fuzzier. But I’m thinking U.S. forces have been in combat in Afghanistan for seven years, so surely there’s been heroism on display by the troops, right? Heck, I’ll take a German or Canadian war hero. Let’s film it and see if it outgrosses “Redacted.”

Is that Afghanistan flick the one where American forces mistakenly blow up football hero/green beret Pat Tillman, or is it the one where they mistakenly blow up a local wedding party?

No, it’s the one where U.S. forces took out the kind of despotic, tyrannical regime that would feel right at home with the Nazis, the same regime that aided and abetted the monsters who committed 9/11.

Right, Chase, because those are the only stories to come out of Afghanistan worth telling

I’m guessing Chase is trying to be provocative, JIC, but it echoes the sentiments of too many people on the left.

“Destructive Generation” based on David Horowitz’s book of the same name. A detailed examination of the excesses and violence of the new left revolutionaries during the Vietnam war.

“Destructive Generation II” the sequel. Detailing the extremist left’s takeover of academia, the arts, and the mainstream media.

K — if they can make a movie about Che Guevara and not show his murderous side, don’t hold your breath on your pitches. Feels good to get it off your chest, though, right?
