Went to see The Conjuring (James Wan, 2013) with my friend Shannon last week. As we left the theatre, some dudebro ahead of us enthusiastically informed his buddy "dude, that was fucking sick." And I was like:
Dude, no. No, dude. No, dude, no.
This? This passes for "fucking sick" nowadays? The last half-century brought us The Exorcist, Cannibal Holocaust, the Blood Trilogy, The Texas Chain Saw Massacre -- and come 2013, The Conjuring qualifies as "fucking sick"? Stop this decade. I'm getting off. This isn't fucking sick. This is a big budget version of that episode of The Waltons with a poltergeist.
