Frodo in Iran

Iran is now showing it's people a Lord of the Rings Marathon to keep them inside, hopefully too distracted to protest in the street. Normally they only show one or two Hollywood movies a week, but the state television station has made an exception here to pacify the people. I always thought it was the American media that was champion at entertaining while manipulating, but now it seems we have some serious competition.

Still, you think Iran would have chosen a movie that doesn't revolve around a small paragon of good fighting against an evil empire?
