You are a the fraud, sir coward.

Jackson ends up telling NO story - just a vomit of computer-guided coloured lights. Sound and fury, signifying nothing...
I was more worried about replenishing Red Vines, than seeing what happened next.
As a result, the money is stolen not from the customers, but from the bank itself.
"Party on, Garth."
Bizarre argumentation. One hardly knows where to begin with your assumptions and red-herring analogies.
To address your first point - with it's ill-considered implications of parity between democracy, capitalism and actual worth or value: Commercial success at this scale simply indicate how thoroughly that vulgarity and thoughtlessness have been cultivated and encouraged by this media-driven culture over the past 90-100 years or so.

The vulgarity of this decadent age. So? He rapes the corpse of JRR Tolkien and that's just fine if it earns a bauble and a penny?
