Via Ace of Spades HQ: the Communist Party (St. Petersburg branch – why aren’t they the Leningrad branch?) is unhappy with the way they’re portrayed in Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.
The party’s central committee called Steven Spielberg’s film an attempt to “slander Soviet Communists” and poison the young against them. It called Ford and Blanchett “capitalist puppets”.
And if you thought that was funny, brace yourself for this one:
Party members were equally scathing in comments posted on its website. Andrei Gindos said: “Harrison Ford and Cate Blanchett are second-rate actors serving as the running dogs of the CIA.”
Ahh, it’s like being back in the 80s. Where’s my boombox and my Public Enemy tapes? Turn it up! Bring the noise!
