According to the creep known as Billy Bob Thornton. . . . .





Quote :
Billy Bob Thornton recently starred in movies such as Eagle Eye, The Astronaut Farmer and School for Scoundrels. He's just claimed video games have shallow narratives - and are even responsible for the modern glut of low quality Hollywood flicks.

The Hollywood A-lister began his attack by simply stating his opinion of modern day movies - vocalising the thoughts of everyone fed up with no-thought, cookie-cutter blockbusters.

"In our current state of affairs, especially in the entertainment business, we're living in a time when we're making - in my humble opinion - the worst movies in history," said Thornton.

Fair play. However, his wise words quickly turned sour - when his ire turned to video games.

"[These movies are] geared toward the video game-playing generation," he added. "And these video games, which I'm on my son about constantly, these games are people killing for fun, and I think traditionally in movies, there's always been some kind of lesson in the violent movies."

Obviously Billy Bob Thornton is choosing to ignore the questionable works of Arnold 'The Governator' Schwarzenegger and his pal Sylvester Stallone in this statement.

It was revealed yesterday that Mark Wahlberg is to play the lead role of Nathan Drake in the upcoming Uncharted movie, which is to be directed by David O. Russell. We wonder what Billy Bob will make of it.

I agree that movies these days are generally crap.
But it has nothing to do with games, I'm certain.

And an uncharted movie?! Uncharted kind of already is a movie ffs.
