The Shakycam

The now completely accepted belief that blurriness and fast inexplicable cuts is an appropriate substitute for action. Technically, this is true; if we were on the set, we would see the camera man jumping up and down on an elliptical machine built out of miniature bouncy castles and say, ‘Hey, that is, from a definitional point of view, an action’.

This is to demonstrate that violence is like bad or something, and not a reason to pay good money to see the film. Well, it did make me nauseated, and now I don’t want to see films anymore. So maybe violence is bad.
