Comments: Talking 'bout bad, bad girls

"A just got B" is the new "C is the new D".

Viagra: "Hard just got easy."

A biopic detailing Red Skelton's battle with depression: "Red just got blue."

A character from Catch-22 reverse-ages and becomes a child: "Major just got minor."

A crime drama about murder and treachery in the competitive world of adorable baby photos (ala Anne Geddes): "Cute just got ugly."

Martin Short stars in the nine-hour stage version of "The Mahabharata". Tagline: Short just got long. (Alternately, Nia Long stars in a remake of Honey, We Shrunk Ourselves, exercise left for the reader.)

High praise for something you didn't write yourself, Rubrick.

I had a similar slumping reaction a few weeks ago when I was confronted with a Twilight movie poster.

Tagline for multimillion dollar movie and cultural phenomenon: "Nothing will be the same."

I think that's about the weakest tagline I've ever seen. The lack of effort in that poster was sucking the creativity out of other nearby objects.

I think the basic principle of the Twilight phenomenon is to find as many different ways to suck as possible, and then claim that the sucking is intended as a metaphor for vampires. For God's sake, the stars of the movie toured Hot Topics nationwide.

It's funny, this poster keeps tormenting me also, but I want it to say "Bad just got BETTER." I guess the problem here is that it might seem like bad has been mitigated to be therefore less bad. But I don't think that's the first place the mind goes.

I mean, it would still be hacky and dumb, but.
