(1) Slumdog Millionaire. And I'm sure it'll only get worse now that they've won everything. Maybe it's just an NPR thing, but every time I've turned on the radio for the past several months, all I hear is the latest Slumdog Millionaire feature. How many Oscars will Slumdog Millionaire win? How much do random interviewees love Slumdog Millionaire? How much does a panal of critics love Slumdog Millionaire? What do real Indians think of Slumdog Millionaire? How does Slumdog Millionaire compare to Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom? Might be a good movie. I don't know. I doubt if I ever will.
(2) Savage Worlds. If you don't participate in the RPG events at gaming conventions, you probably don't know what I'm talking about. If you do, you probably just started playing the game and can't wait to share the Good News with me. Don't get me wrong; it's a fine game. I played it once and had a good time, but enough is enough. It's really not that special and, even if it were, nothing could live up to this ridiculous hype.
