Intro to Cinema: Tropic Frequel

-So I'd heard from a few friends that Tropic Thunder was not funny. I accepted this as the likely truth because I FUCKING HATE BEN STILLER OR ANYTHING BEN STILLER RELATED (except Heavyweights and Happy Gilmore.) But then I had some free movie passes so I saw the film anyway. Short story shorter, the movie was hilarious. With everyone being hyped on "intelligent" comedies these days, I was in dire need of some senseless, outrageously big Hollywood comedy. It was also a lot more daring (language wise) than I expected from a Stiller movie. So see the movie if you haven't. But that's not why I'm posting, I'm posting because the filmmakers have released this fake documentary about the making of this movie within the movie. It's called Rain of Madness, and it's available as a free download on iTunes. If you've seen/enjoyed the movie, you'll enjoy this, and if you're wondering whether or not to see it, this will get you pumped.
