You know, I was a happier person back when ‘The Mainstream’ left MMA the fuck alone. At least then I didn’t have to hear the opinion of every shmuck sports columnist who had a bit of space to fill at the bottom of their spelling bee writeup. But what’s worse than these retards are the idiots who are trying to cash in on the MMA demographic; people so out of touch they honestly don’t have a clue who we are or why we watch the UFC. There’s no better example of this than the big Hostel tie in at UFC71.
For those not in the know, Hostel is one of those new breed horror flicks in the vein of Saw that goes for really in-your-face violence. However, the Hostel series is different because it really concentrates on the sadistic psychological and physical torture / murder of women. I’ve included a ‘leaked’ clip from Hostel 2 to show you what I’m talking about. I put quotes around ‘leaked’ because this was most likely released by the studios to create buzz and attract the kind of market they’re looking for.
And what kind of market do they think would go for this sadistic ultra-violence? Oh, mixed martial arts fans! They get off to people beating eachother up, so of course they’ll jump at the chance to watch a naked woman get butchered like cattle.
Look, I’m just as much into violence as the next guy. I love John Woo flicks and watch Ricky-Oh on a daily basis. I’ll beat hookers with baseball bats in GTA for hours, but there’s a big difference between the kind of violence in these forms of media and the shit in Hostel. Don’t even get me started on the difference between mixed martial arts and Hostel. I don’t have to, because this isn’t a mainstream blog and you’re already a fan of MMA. You understand. And I’m sure you understand what is so discusting about someone thinking Hostel is our kinda shit. It’s just another example of how dumb the mainstream is and how they view us MMA fans. Fuck you, Hostel. And fuck you, mainstream.
