    • The Interview - Propaganda Analysis by Basicc


      from BetterStream / Added

      11 Plays / / 0 Comments

      Basicc creates a 23-minute version of the two-hour film, The Interview, by fast forwarding through the dead air of the film and narrates the film’s agenda throughout. In Basicc’s words, I predicted the whole sordid affair of The Interview early on, before the release. When I learned The Interview was a “comedy” about killing the North Korean president, that it would have to be a follow up to all the previous propaganda hate towards North Korea in other Hollywood movies. Once I heard about the hack, I knew it was a hype vehicle. They blamed North Korea without any evidence, so why if this is a comedy is everyone getting all terroristic about it? After Sony decides not to release the movie, as theaters allegedly won’t even carry it, President Barack Obama gets involved in what looks like a press campaign for The Interview movie, then suddenly everyone is on board and they release it a few days later ON CHRISTMAS DAY itself. And of course, it’s not about money, insurance will take care of that, they just want to make sure the movie becomes a household title, and it will. The film stars James Franco as goober humor extroadinaire James Franco, er, Dave Skylark of Skylark Tonight, and Seth Rogen as goober humor extraodinaire, Seth Rogen, er Aaron Rapaport of Skylark Tonight. The Interview also stars the ravishing Lizzy Caplan as Agent Lacey of the CIA of course, what other entity exists in this world. President Kim Jong Un, the real president of North Korea, is portrayed by Randall Park and his right hand lady is portrayed by Sook, pronounced Suck. Eminem also makes a cameo appearance as himself in The Interview. The entire movie accuses North Korea of doing what America is doing in the very movie itself. While it’s true I don’t know anything about North Korea, they could really be bad guys and all, but what I do know is that America is constantly demonizing in movies like The Interview and even another movie I did, GI Joe Retaliation. If they were really bad, they should do a documentary about them, not use propaganda and lame jokes to make us hate them, that’s just counterproductive. Instead, they use real news commentators to talk bad about North Korea in the comedy movie as they also do when they are in their real role as “real” news commentators on TV.

      • GI Joe Retaliation (Full Feature Commentary) by Basicc

        Basicc parodies GI Joe Retaliation in this full feature length non-stop unofficial director’s commentary of the film. Basicc doesn’t shut up for a moment as he tears up this thoughtless remake of the original GI Joe: Rise of Cobra which at least had a little bit of charm and plot, at least by comparison. In GI Joe: Retaliation, it seems the retaliation is against the audience for daring to come to the theater again. The film appears to be an extended Public Relations campaign for joining the US Marine Corp, whether you are a man or woman. The film begins with The Rock shooting up North Korea and there’s more attacks on North Korea throughout which seem quite political in nature to Basicc. The only interesting part of the film is seeing Jaye, played by Adrianne Palicki, jogging in a pornographic outfit, other than that it’ll bore you to tears. Thankfully, you have Basicc to keep you awake as he shows you the film’s failures over and over again. It’s easy to miss them without the commentary as the music and action tend to just carry you away into hypnosis land. What’s sad is the film has an all star cast, including Dwayne Johnson as The Rock, er, Roadblock, Jonathony Pryce as the President of the United States, Byung-hun Lee as the sexy Storm Shadow, D.J. Cotrona as the new GI Joe archetype, Channing Tatum as the old GI Joe archetype who gets insulted a few times before he dies early on in the movie, Luke Bracey as Cobra Commander, Elodie Yung as Jinx, Ray Park as Snake Eyes, Bruce Willis as John McClane, er, General Joe Colton, who can’t keep the Pentagon off his ass, RZA as the Blind Master, and Basicc as a full-time voiceover. “GI Joe: Retaliation is a sad story, completely disappointing, predictable, and it’s anti-ethnic, and it promotes violence and war as virtues, and fails to justify itself in any way at all. But it’s gotta a lot of explosions happening, like most Hollywood movies, but if that’s not enough to get you going, you get to enjoy my mouth flapping. And it’s probably one of my favorite analyses too, a real eye-opener to myself as I rewatched it a year later.” Basicc.

            I decided to go with a storyboarded and planned production using action figures and dolls from vintage toy lines. It's a surreal look at a story told from a certain point-of-view that isn't what it appears.
