Quoting You

It's been a while since I (stole) quoted anyone. This is not from the world of games (yes, I know, hard to believe such a place exists but it's there- I'm told- beyond the glow of the monitor and past the soft hum of the motherboard fans), but from Charlie Brooker who's humor and darkly satirical screen plays are top notch. This is in relation to bad guys in superhero movies:

Tip: if you want to make your bad guy interesting and menacing and exotic, don't waste hours gluing prosthetic dice to his eyelids and giving him a name like "the Quizzlestick". Just show him masturbating into an oven glove while watching earthquake footage on CNN. Then you've got my attention. And automatically made a film worth watching.
