Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
All of those american series with deranged psycho sadists hunted by the cops and news reports of kidnapped babies I think is much more likely to induce fear then a violence festival signed Tarantino.

I don't think they're unrelated.

Kindness and basic humanity are the new taboos in Hollywood. You can show all the sadism and gore you want, but if you show people acting humanely, audiences and critics will want your blood.

Hollywood is just a reboot of gladiatorial Rome without the free bread. The idiot-obsession with guns and gangsta machismo is a symptom, not a cause.
