Parents have been inventing stories about monsters to scare their children into obedience for centuries. It make sense, short of being held at gunpoint, a bloodthirsty demon is just about the only thing that’s going to convince a six-year-old to brush his teeth and go to bed before midnight.
Some cultures, however, took this idea a bit too far and invented creatures that would make any grown man shit his pants. Like…
"You can’t call the 1975 blaxploitation film Dolemite a bad movie, in the same way you can’t call the Charge of the Light Brigade a failed military engagement: By any sane definition it really absolutely is the worst one ever, but its level of failure so far transcends the original concepts involved it takes on immortality. It honestly might not be legal to make a film like this any more.
This of course is just all the more reason to examine it, as if it were one of the last, badly deformed specimens of an endangered species.”
I never really expected to see that kind of fail from one of my favorite shows on tv.
"Looks like the writers of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ need to "hit the reset button" before they "run out of extra lives" on this episode about video game addiction. Let’s "pause the game" and "fill up our (narrative) health bars" before covering a subculture we know nothing about. "First Person Shooter."
Look at these freaks sweat, scratch, shake and stutter like they’re going through heroin withdrawal. It’s every gamer’s mom’s worst nightmare. It’s Reefer Madness for the 90s!
Play video games too much and you will put your child in a crawlspace rape dungeon and become so engrossed in what looks like more like an interactive DVD menu than a video game, so engrossed that you won’t hear the feds kick down your door. What did you expect from the Kingdom of Galagar? It’s like…a digital crack cocaine…of some kind.”
