->''"So ''Film/MadMax'', or, as it's called in its native land, '[[LandDownunder Med Mex]]', finally rolls into Video Game Town... only to find that the industry is way ahead of it and we've already played what might as well have been the ''Mad Max'' video game about seventeen times already by my count, between ''{{VideoGame/Borderlands}}'', ''{{VideoGame/Rage}}'', ''{{VideoGame/Carmageddon}}'', the entire ''{{VideoGame/Fallout}}'' franchise and, to a lesser extent, ''[[VideoGame/SuperMarioKart Mario Kart]]''."''

->''"A joke is never as funny the second time you hear it."''
-->-- '''Calvin''', ''ComicStrip/CalvinAndHobbes''




to:

->''"Coming up next on [[Creator/ChannelFour E4]]: Series/{{Friends}} -- {{The One|With}} Where You Realise That It's Not As Funny As It Used To Be."''
-->-- '''Things You Won't Hear When Flicking Through Satellite TV''', ''Series/MockTheWeek's Funniest Book of All Time 2011''

->''"Thing is, though, that it was such a defining soundscape of its era that it sounds terribly dated these days, and the John Landis video for the title track is positively painful to watch at this point."''
-->-- '''J. Eric Smith''' on ''[[Music/MichaelJackson Thriller]]''

->''"[[Music/NineInchNails NIN]] was a much bigger draw than [[Music/DavidBowie Bowie]], but because Trent Reznor is not a disrespectful prick, he rightly allowed Bowie a slightly more exalted position on the bill. Here's the deal, though. The overwhelming majority of the coliseum was there to see NIN. The audience was awash with 14-year-old girls in torn fishnets and black lipstick. Even though they probably went off to college, broadened their musical horizons, and became Bowie fans ([[PromotedFanboy considering what a huge NIN influence he is]]), on that night, [[ToughActToFollow they were not]]. ...When Trent left the stage, so did half the audience, some of them crying that they didn't get enough Trent. Bowie "ruined the show" for them. (That's an actual quote from some girl I overheard in the parking lot -- moments before I strangled her to death.)"''

->''"Some people look at the quality of these early episodes and complain that today's animated upstarts aren't being given enough time to [[GrowingTheBeard get their groove]] going before they [[CutShort get the ax]]. The error in that logic is that it doesn't apply to ''WesternAnimation/TheSimpsons''. I was there, and I remember the show being a massive hit out of the gate. It was Creator/{{Fox}}'s first show to break the Nielsen Top 30. These 13 eps were all there was for months and millions kept tuning into the repeats. People loved these badly-drawn, out-of-character, seldom-side-splitting adventures just as much as they loved later, better seasons."''
-->-- '''[[Website/PlatypusComix Peter Paltridge]]''', "The Lost Art of TV Guide Advertising Vol 10: The Simpsons"

->''"''[[Series/StarTrekEnterprise Enterprise]]'' was a clone of ''[[Series/StarTrekVoyager Voyager]]'', which is bad enough. But ''Voyager'' itself was already a clone of ''[[Series/StarTrekTheNextGeneration The Next Generation]]''. So by the time you get to ''Enterprise'', you're watching a copy of a copy of a copy. And much like any Nth-generation VHS dub of a bootleg movie, when everything is said and done, all you're left with is indistinct static."''

->''"''VideoGame/DeusEx'' is one of those games where everyone who liked it is now incredibly familiar with the first hour of it; because occasionally they get a urge to give it a replay, and it won't be long before they think to themself: 'Blimey, I don't remember it looking quite ''this'' much like ass!'"''
-->-- '''Yahtzee''', ''WebAnimation/ZeroPunctuation''

->'''"Itís not bad, certainly -- the story of the Super Nintendo is in part the story of the death of the side-scrolling [[PlatformGame platformer]], but itís one of those deaths via last golden age, and even the b-list is pretty good. But it does not sparkle."''

->''"[[Literature/JohnCarterOfMars John Carter]] has been ripped off so many times by so many important filmmakers that it paradoxically canít help but feel weirdly derivative of films (inspired by its source material) that hit screens decades before Film/JohnCarter bombed. In the century-long lag time between the literary introduction of John Carter and this cinematic adaptation, many of Burroughsí innovations became groan-inducing clichés. Like Creator/HGWells and Creator/JulesVerne, Burroughs was prescient and visionary, yet today looks more than a little old-fashioned."''

Which is, not that The Tenth Planet is as good as Hamlet, kind of like saying Hamlet is rubbish because The Lion King has better songs."''
