re: #2 CuriousLurker
When Shiplord Kirrel posted this video in a comment thread a few days ago, this was my response:
Interesting concept, but I think it would have been far more effective if it showed the “bad guys” causing their own deaths, e.g. shooting themselves in the head after announcing they were doing nothing about the problem, or spontaneously combusting, or melting into a puddle Wicked-Witch-of-the-West style. Something semi-humorous rather than shock-value-gross.
Had they done this, I’m sure the film would have still garnered complaints, but any “outrage” would have looked like silly overreaction instead of a legitimate complaint.
