"the breakdown of American cinema"

While awaiting the disappointment that was Hamlet 2, the wife and I were forced to sit through an excruciating trailer for An American Carol. (I'm not embedding it, or even linking to it. If you wish to subject yourself to torture, you're going to have to do it yourself.)

The plot, as summed up by Wikipedia, as of this morning at least:
Charismatic left-wing activist and filmmaker Michael Malone (Kevin Farley) is campaigning to end the celebration of the Fourth of July. Malone truculently argues to the American people that America's past and present are offensive, and therefore should not be celebrated. Malone is then visited by three ghosts, George Washington, George S. Patton, and John F. Kennedy, who try to make him rethink himself and America. Some critics are calling this the breakdown of American cinema and is only a cashcow meant to draw in ignorant right wing fascists. These critics should learn to write a coherent sentence. 'Some critics are calling this...and is only a cashcow' my scrawny republican ass.
Open source = God's honest truth.

I'm a little peeved that you even mention that this series of images exists.

"Series of images" is too kind. "Series of slaps on the eyeballs and conscience" is more like it.
