South Park: Imaginationland

South Park: Imaginationland
Seemingly the collective comedic genius and boundless imagination of Matt Stone and Trey Parker will never end. It takes warped and inspired minds to dissect basic social issues in the most abstract scenarios while keeping the message clear and hilarious. America’s military actions are ridiculous and its citizens’ minds diluted. Terrorists invade our imaginations thanks to a bet between Eric Cartman and Kyle Broflovski over the existence of leprechauns. If Cartman is correct, Kyle has to suck his balls, if not then he’s out ten bucks. The entire 12-year-old population of South Park, sans Kenny, manages to catch the green elf, who has an important message about an impending attack. The next day the boys are confronted by a bizarre/friendly man who asks them about the leprechaun and in-turn takes them to Imaginationland, after they make sure he won’t rape them. Imaginationland is home to every good fictional character (i.e., Snark from Thundercats and Santa Clause) ever imagined. A surprise terrorist attack starts off the brutality and peaks when the Taliban blows up the wall that divides the good and evil creatures. With the likes of the Predator, Jason and Man-Bear-Pig on the loose, more bloodshed of friendly fictional folks ensues. Meanwhile, Cartman, Kyle and Stan escape on a magical dragon only to leave Butters behind, who narrowly flees the attackers through the gumdrop forest. Back in reality, the American government’s failed attempt to save Imaginationland by sending a group of marines headed up by Kurt Russell leaves them with one option: nuke the goddamn thing. With the fate of Imaginationland in the boys’ hands and Cartman’s dry, salty balls in his own, an epic conclusion is in the works. Extras include boring storyboards, commentary on Imaginationland, and two extra episodes featuring a friendless Al Gore trying to catch ManBearPig with the help of four South Park residents, plus A Woodland Christmas Critters Tale where Stan unknowingly almost helps spawn the anti-Christ.
