This just reminds me of that Muhammed debacle that South Park had a few years back.

Except that Islamic terrorists are an actual threat...North Korea isn't.

Once the Great Leader's most recent temper tantrum gets forgotten, the world will move on and the movie get a quiet DVD and/or VOD release.

My counter is that I bought a copy of Team America for cheap...just to spite them.

I saw The Hobbit: Battle of the Five Armies today. It was pretty good, and the action was awesome as well. And I wasn't bothered by the +2 hour running time (unlike Transformers: Age of Extinction.

Is that the fake rocket launcher from Robocop 2?

No, the one from robocop is much cruder and fake-er looking. Also, the sight on the side is just a box that is a parallel to the tube, as opposed to that which is more complicated and the sight is angled like on a Javelin (pretty sure that is what it is meant to be a mock up of). Whilst watching this video to try and see the launcher to confirm, it also turns out that there is a Redeye launcher in the background as well.

I'm surprised the commercial got past government censors. A group of Chinese saved by Captain America himself?

I recently got Middle Earth: Shadow of Mordor, and it's a really fun game. My only complaint about it is that I keep getting swarmed by Uruks and die, allowing some orc to rise in rank.

But I have been able to take out the Four Warchiefs.

I heard the last gen port of the game wasn't as good. Which system did you get it for?
