Quotes: Strawman Has a Point
Before the main horror action starts, Jessie battles for Cassie's affections while avoiding the wrath of her father, who doesn't approve of the pure love that blossoms between a mulleted, herpes-ridden guitarist and his school-age daughter. This is a sentiment that runs through the entirety of Hard Rock Zombies: The backward, ultraconservative townspeople just don't understand. Why, they're even determined to ban rock 'n' roll music because of its evil influences. But it's hard to sympathize with the plight of rockers when the rock musicians in question are actually raising the dead with rock while banging underage girls.

How much of a bad sign is it when the foreign, supposed to be unlikeable, semi-villainous German with an all-white team counterpart to your main character is the cuddly voice of reason?
Diamanda Hagan, commenting on Bonekickers Episode 5.

This is probably the first time I saw a strawman argument that made more sense than the rebuttal. In case you missed it, the rebuttal is Brew humping a sex-doll that resembles the woman in the foreground.
Lilith Ester, reviewing Shredded Moose

Some books against Deism fell into my hands... It happened that they wrought an effect on me quite contrary to what was intended by them; for the arguments of the Deists, which were quoted to be refuted, appeared to me much stronger than the refutations; in short, I soon became a thorough Deist.

I mean... REALLY, film?! The character who offers discipline and obedience is dubbed the VILLAIN in this film?! I mean, okay, hes going to remove fun and stuff, I get that but at least he actually has good REASON TO! The character they call CRAZY wants to bring obedience to children? I mean, okay, KIDNAPPING them is wrong... but still... What he wants to DO when he kidnaps them is fine. As long as he doesn't turn them into donkeys like the Coachman [from Pinocchio] did...
