Hey Kids! Let's All Hate Benjamin Button!

I've thought, for a long time now, that Hollywood is almost bereft of ideas. Sure they manage an occasional good one but that I attribute, for the most part, to the infinite monkey theorem, to films made by talented and newly arrived foreigners or to something of quality slipping through the nets that Hollywood erects to block such things. Normally I steer clear of non-Canadian content on this blog so I don't talk much about the suckiness of Hollywood, making crappy films for people who don't know enough to know that they are crappy but I have to make an exception in this case:

Jordan Kawchuk, who's day job is bringing you the wonderful Radio 3 TV video podcast, now brings you (in his spare time) the Official Anti-Benjamin Button Club . If you visit you can find some great info such as:
10 Things I Would Rather Watch Than Suffer Through Benjamin Button Again

3. Two And A Half Men
4. Jim Belushi movie, K-9
5. The Notebook, Extended Director’s Cut
6. Clown Porn
7. America’s Funniest Home Videos: The Bob Saget Years
8. Encino Man
9. Paul Blart: Mall Cop
10. Old people doin’ it
You can also express your hate for Benajamin Button by following fakebenbutton on twitter or by joining any one of several Facebook groups for Benjamin Button haters!

Whichever way you do it come and get your hate on for “that leathery beasty baby that looks like a haggis ready to be sliced open”
