Wittertainment at its most wittertaining, this time from Imagethief on the ever-fascinating topic of governmentally conceived culture:
As the Beijing Municipal People’s Political Consultative Conference announced that they had conceived a big-scale blockbuster flick about the Birth of a Nation (something like that, in any case), the approporiate comment comes in:
“… nothing says, Aaargh! My eyes! like “Conceived by the Beijing Municipal People’s Political Consultative Conference.” This, in a nutshell, is every single thing that’s wrong with Chinese popular culture –especially the film industry– distilled down to it’s purest essence in nine bone chilling words. The BMPPCC should conceive statues. It should conceive statutes. It should conceive worthy initiatives to get healthy meals to schoolchildren and it should conceive improved traffic laws. But it should conceive motion pictures like I should conceive a two-headed goat child.”
Imagethief goes on to suggest that the picture should be helmed by Michael Bay instead of Huang Jianxin and replace a politics whore with a money whore. Bay being the anti-christ, this will not happen, of course, as it would cause religious turmoil. I think the idea of showing ’em how it’s done is pretty good, though, and suggest to ask Trey Parker and Matt Stone to go for the big screen again.
