Rube Goldberg & Bullshit!

Batman vs. Superman. Another movie I won't bother to see. But I actually read the article on Grantland. And made it to the end. And came across this great line:

"This is less a piece of cinema and more the beginning segments of a Rube Goldberg machine that prints money." - Dave Shilling

And isn't that the dream of our grand entertainment complex? A money printing machine!

And then here's Ben Brantley on Penn & Teller: "It’s hard to hear a pop star’s hit record now without thinking of the technology that smoothed and sweetened the vocals, or to listen to a politician without imagining a team of speechwriters, or to watch special effects in an action movie without wondering about green screens. As much as we may be amused or even enthralled by such spectacles, it’s become a point of honor to know that they’re only illusions."

In other words - bullshit! We are swimming in bullshit!
