Are you feeling awful because you saw Alone in the Dark and you realize
that bad movies have lost their allure?
Yes. There's something far too corporate about bad movies these days. They aren't gallant failures, they are cynical attempts at branding. Perhaps that is my true ailment over the past year: I can no longer function at full capacity in a world so incorporated even bad movies are tainted.
I am sad.
