This is the first book in Alexander O'Hara's Popp’d Off series: a sarcastic, satirical savaging of the freaks, geeks, strange beasts and wild antics of pop culture. Terminating Hollywood, as you probably guessed from the title, is all about movies. Pieces include: the life of Tom Cruise rewritten in a Biblical style. how Movie Trailer Guy lies to us; homosexual undertones in action flicks; Schwarzenegger on the therapists’s couch; the most stupid character names ever; Marxist cartoon reviews; national stereotypes in cinema; what happens to action heroes in retirement?; tell-tale clichés of summer films; romantic match-ups that could only happen in cinema; how to make a deep-and-meaningful art-house film; Spike Lee vs. Mike Leigh in a directorial death-fight; why the Oscars suck completely; VCR RIP; the most pretentious French film script ever written; James Cameron takes on the life of Gandhi; suggestions for Tarantino flicks; get kitted out with the coolest props ever; and why movies have made me terrified to travel abroad. Take a walk on the wild - and funny - side of the freaky-deaky film world. This is no country for old jokes!
