“Help us make a NEW KIND of animated film… one that’s LOUD, VIOLENT and OFFENSIVE TO YOUR GRANDMA.”  screams David Fincher’s  crowdfunding appeal on  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/624061548/the-goon-movie-lets-kickstart-this-sucker.

Please Mr. Fincher enlighten me: what offends your grandma?

What offends me, grandmother and great-grandmother is not ‘mobsters, zombies, killer robots, demon priests’ but sexist and ageist filmmakers, specially producers.

    Very well put! I think I’ll visit that fundraising site and leave a comment from this feeble, quivering grandmother. Fetch my smelling salts!
