LMAO!!! North Korea calls Hollywood film ‘act of war,’ demands US ban its release

Pyongyang on Wednesday condemned an upcoming Hollywood film starring actors James Franco and Seth Rogen — who play characters caught up in a plot to assassinate North Korean leader Kim Jong Un — as an “act of war.”

The reclusive communist country has vowed to unleash a “merciless countermeasure” if the U.S. government fails to ban the movie’s release.

30 years ago today (July 27, 1984) Purple Rain starring Prince was released with all original music composed by Prince. Prince would later win The Oscar for Original Song Score at the 1985 Academy Awards for his work on this film.

Purple Rain (film) turns 30 today! July 27th 1984! This might be the first time where I actually feel OLD! I remember being a little kid and we were at my older sisters place or it could’ve been my dad’s girlfriends place? Not really sure because I was very young but we were having a family reunion/gathering of some sort and it might’ve been thanksgiving? Or a birthday? and all the LA family from my dad’s side (I’ve never met anyone from my moms side of the family that’s a story for another time) and we were eating, playing dominoes the adults were drinking and then my older brother pops a videotape into the VHS player and I was mesmerized by what followed… From the beginning of the film with prince starting off with a sermon and goes into “Let’s Go Crazy” from that moment on I WAS A PRINCE FAN FOR LIFE!


The music grabbed me in a special way and I was flipping out over the purple motorcycle (I kept asking my older brothers if they’d buy a purple motorcycle so I could ride it with them). I wanted all of princes jackets because they had that cool metal piece on his shoulder and let’s not forget about the super sexy appalonia!! WOW! Seeing her stripping and jumping into a lake pretty much solidified my love for brunettes! I also thought Morris Day and The Time were very funny and cool and thought Jerome was super cool because he just happened to have a mirror handy on stage during a show. This movie CHANGED my life!! 


At this point all I knew (music wise) in my little world were songs from the muppet show and Michael Jackson Thriller plus film scores to whatever Family Film Festival played on the weekends and music from The Kung Fu movies we’d watch on the weekends as well and whatever my older sister happened to be listening to (when I was allowed to be in the same room as her because she thought she was too cool for me to hang out with her) and a few other songs of that summer. Also all the music they used for the olympics opening and closing ceremonies (they were in LA that summer so lots of music was going down around LA). 


I digress, back to Purple Rain… I loved watching the live bands play and The Time slide across the stage in unison plus the lighting during the performances and wishing I was one of the dancers one of the break dancers on the side of the stage I thought Lisa was super hot and she could play keys and when I saw the white guitar for the first time I thought that was the coolest thing EVER!! I wanted one sooooooooo bad! I dug that Prince was a rebel and likes getting with hot girls and rode a motorcycle. I’ve never seen a black guy do this before… I didn’t think black guys COULD do all this before watching Purple Rain! (Tv/media programming in general in the early 80s was very very anti black!) you only saw black guys as thugs drug dealers pimps or the bad guy! You only got to see a cool one once in a great while (Lando Calrissian and MJ in thriller video) and that was it! Then the Cosby show came later and THAT changed my life as well but that’s a different story for another time!


The songs from this movie were forever etched into my brain and have been a part of my inner score since day one! Prince’s Purple Rain CHANGED MY LIFE!! Anyone calling themselves a prince fan should own a copy of this film and know it by heart! I know I do! I gotta thank my big brother for playing the movie for us that day… He helped shape me in ways that I didn’t realize until just now. 
Long live Prince and his music and happy 30th bday to the film Purple Rain! I hope I’m around in 30 more years to watch its 60th birthday screening!
