What are people saying?

  • Georges Iroh's rating of the film The Pest

    The gross comic stereotyping common to white supremacist texts (i.e. Bonanza, Our Gang, South Park, etc.) has never been, nor ever will be, funny. A re-interpretation of The Most Dangerous Game rife with homophobia, ableism and shallow racial caricature. The music video that opens the film, outside of a gratuitous instance of ableist language, is brilliant in the way it introduces the film's titular character.
