Need For Speed: Leaves Need for Time in Wake

Need For Speed advertisement released in March 2014

I

got through the first half hour of #NeedForSpeed….and then had to turn it off once the inevitable accident happened; the one killing younger, inexperienced buddy pits the villain versus the hero in the storyline.  The event in question (which was big enough to rival a small asteroid hitting the surface of the Earth and bouncing back up into space) somehow left neither forensic nor any other kind of evidence and, of course, no witnesses despite there being a string of legendary secondary car accidents in the wake of the centre-stage farce.

I have a theory — call it amateur speculation if you’d like — about why this summer’s #movie season was the worst on record.  It had nothing to do with anything else going on in the world or in the #Hollywood universe.  Nor was it World Cup Soccer causing some kind of movie-fan-wallet-eating distraction.  It was simply that the big movie studios turned out total garbage this year…garbage like Need for Speed.  Spare yourself the bandwidth (to say nothing of actually visiting any of the B-list theatres still playing it); the only thing you’ll gain watching this is a desire for that time (and/or any money) back.

"Goth Kids 3: Dawn of the Posers" was set to air October 16, 2013.[1] South Park episodes are usually produced in only six days and delivered to Comedy Central just hours before airing. However, on October 15, 2013, South Park Studios suffered a power outage, causing the staff’s computers to go down during post-production and leaving the episode incomplete, missing its deadline for the first time in 17 seasons.[2] Series co-creator Trey Parker wrote that "it sucks to miss an air date but after all these years of tempting fate by delivering the show last minute, I guess it was bound to happen."[3] A rerun of the fifth season episode "Scott Tenorman Must Die" was shown in its place, with live tweets accompanying the broadcast.[4]

I guess the producers of South Park have never heard of backup power (a.k.a. “UPS”)?

Unbelievable!
