10 Updates

The natural drama from the disease never seems to be enough for some filmmakers, who use manipulative tactics in a lame attempt to get the audience to cry, likely to hide the fact that their movie just simply isn't very good. A good example of such a film is 2002's Nicholas Sparks schlo ...

'The Fault In Our Stars' Review: Doomed Teen Romance Is Manipulative But Effective

Source: Big Government

Throughout the late 50's and early 60's, there were a number of "death discs" or "teenage tragedy songs" that romanticized the intensity of teen love when mixed with premature death. The fad began in 1959 with Mark Dinning's  #1 smash "Teen Angel," which resulted in the expected flood of similar recordings. By the time "Leader of the Pack" was released in 1964, there was a parental backlash (the United Kingdo ...
