Honesty in Media

Don’t you appreciate it when a film marketing company treats the audience with enough respect not to pretend that their film is anything other than what it really is?  I mean, ‘MegaShark vs. Giant Octopus’ probably isn’t going to evoke the spirit of Ingmar Bergman (although it does seem to deal with Bergman’s key theme, death), nor will it have the wit of Wes Anderson (but the trailer certainly made me laugh), but it does have Debbie Gibson, without whom my bedroom wall twenty years ago would have featured only posters for ‘The Goonies’ and ‘Back to the Future’.  Debbie Gibson.  And a Giant Octopus and  Mega Shark. Not much else I can say right now.
