I mean, instead of telling us a thing was 'terrible,' describe it so that we'll be terrified.
C. S. Lewis, letter to a fan who asked for writing advice.

When no one was looking, Lex Luthor took forty cakes. He took 40 cakes. That's as many as four tens, and represents an NK-class end of the world scenario in which the entire planet, and then the universe, is overrun by cake. And that's terrible.
— thedeadlymoose on why stealing 40 of this particular cake from the SCP Foundation really would be terrible

We’ve known all along that Doctor Octopus had sinister designs in mind, of course, but really: a lab in a penthouse? That seems to violate any number of good safety rules. Surely a ground-floor lab would make evacuation in case of fire much easier, while a top-floor location could result in dangerous chemicals leaking through the floor into the living room of the hapless tenants below. I’m not so much angry with Doc Ock as I am disappointed.

Is this supposed to be some kind of rape allegory? Because having Borg implants removed from Seven against her will doesn’t quite cover it... in fact it's so oddly inoffensive I find the implications of the theme quite offensive.
Joe Ford on Star Trek: Voyager, "Retrospect"

And now, the complete character assassination of Jonathon Archer can begin in earnest. Archer, now faced with the prospect of his pet dying due to a pathogen picked up on an alien planet, begins to blame... the alien species?
The Agony Booth on Star Trek: Enterprise, "A Night in Sickbay"

So why doesn’t it work? Part of it is, ironically, that this is the one bit of the series’ past that you can’t take this approach with...the idea of Tegan being horrified by a bunch of Daleks exploding just doesn’t quite wash. There’s just too much history of enjoying Daleks slaughtering everybody to use them as the basis of this critique.

I’m sorry, but contrast that to what Johnny Cash had to go through in his life, I look at this movie and say 'so f*cking what?' Oh and maybe a 'boo freaking hoo' thrown in for good measure. This does not really qualify as an underdog story and I’m not going to sit through two hours of melodramatic camp about how bad you had it. We all got it bad lady and your story doesn’t exactly qualify as being all that special or a hard knock life.
