A momentary diversion, with bonus seizure potential!
Remember how last month there was a story about how Netflix was going to offer movie downloads? I'm relatively confident that this ain't it.
I'm not quite sure why a person would take movies like Scarface, Pulp Fiction, A Clockwork Orange, and Fight Club and turn them into bite-sized sensory overloads, but it's masochistic fun to watch to see how long you can stand it before your brain turns to silly putty. Sort of like watching TRL. Perhaps this is the closest we can ever get to experiencing what watching a movie might look like from Courtney Love's perspective.
Actually, you know what it sort of reminds me of? When I was but a wee lad, the love of my life was Atari. Long story short, when I finally beat Pitfall after an unmentionable number of hours, I leapt up in triumph, spilling Strawberry Quik all over my Canyon Bomber cartridge. When I tried to play said newly pink Canyon Bomber, the colors were all flashy and bad-trip kooky; it looked not unlike these movies. I'm just sayin'.
