Come Mierda Of the Week Award

Goes to the Judges at Cannes and to Benicio Del Toro. While even the NY Times calles the new Che Movie tripe, the judges at Cannes awarded Del Toro Best Actor for his portrayal of the murderer prick. You got to love these quotes though:

“I’d like to dedicate this to the man himself, Che Guevara,” said the actor, after accepting his second big award under the US director’s helmsmanship.
“I wouldn’t be here without Che Guevera, and through all the awards the movie gets you’ll have to pay your respects to the man.”
And taking one reporter’s question after Cannes’ red-carpet awards ceremony, all Del Toro saw was her “Che” T-shirt. “I like the shirt,” he said several times.

Del Toro, who has a quiet but immensely strong presence, was involved from the start on the “Che” film, which took nine years of research and 60 million dollars to complete.
In Cannes for the screening, he recounted how like the average American he grew up with a bad guy image of Cuba’s hero until stumbling on a book on the guerrilla leader in Mexico.
“He had a really warm smile. I bought the book and then read more. The love people had for this man made me more interested,” he said.

All the research on this guy and this was the best they could do? Where did they do their research? The Havana Ministry of Information? ANd Che had a “warm smile” and “loved people”? Yeah just like that scene in History of the World Part I when King Louis says “I love my people …. pull” and then he shoots them.
Oy vay infidels, I think I’m going to blow some chunks after reading this article tonight.
Ya think I’m kidding? Read the whole story here

    We can’t be surprised … after all the Cannes jury panel was headed bu no other than Sean Penn … need we say more? S.P. = Socialist Person. As he stated in an interview: “Awards will go only to “the films that particularly interest us.”
    I could bet that silently the following words were added at the end of his statement “… and that help us promote our political agenda.” … the che’s myth lives on! I’m telling you … che’s soul burning in hell must look like “fireworks” right now … after the dedication of the award by del Toro. 🙁
    I wish you well 🙂 Melek

  2. Cigar Mike,
    A family friend spent 10+ years in jail because of Che Guevara. I was still in Cuba when he got out of jail around 1970-71. I remember to this day that the man looked 20 years older than his age at the time.
    Eventually he came to Miami in the early eighties as a political prisoner but unfortunately, did not live much longer after arriving to freedom. The long years of jail suffering had taken a toll on his health.
    His son lives here in Miami and could play testimony to what his father went through in jail. I’m sure that he could tell a thing or two to Bernicio Del Toro about who was the real Che (Scumbag) Guevara.
    Sometimes I feel that if the United States of America were to be attacked again in a manner like September 11; that the building that gets attacked is full of all these Hollywood liberal anti-American idiots only, instead of innocent people.

  3. George, as sick as it sounds, I bet you we could pitch the following to Hollywood as a farce, and those dumbasses would jump at it:
    1. Che – The Musical
    2. Che on Ice – The story of the warm hearted revolutionary all choreographed on ice skates;
    3. Che in Space — Che’s DNA is cloned into a 21st Century Che who leads an expedition through the galaxy in search of planets needing revolution.
    4. Che in Tights — Che comes out of the closet, moves to San Fran, and joins a dance troupe.
    Oh the humanity!!!!!!

  4. Hope the movie bombs at the box office–tell all your friends to stay away from it. In fact, let’s all of us Cuban Americans try to organize and get some protesters in front of the theaters when the movie opens here.
