People Who Don't Need People

300 has recently been surpassed in the boxoffice listings by the new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles non-interactive video game. Two Blowhards are are debating the relative merits of 300 here, in an interesting article which includes this great line:

"300" and films like it represent -- I can't help feeling -- the end of an art form that I loved and the beginning of something that I don't care about one way or the other.

What do you call these things? Digital hallucinations for people who aren't particularly interested in people? I like this comment: "The arts are leaving the human behind. What rough beast slouches out of the shopping malls (waiting?)to be born?"

Some of the posted comments below the review are interesting too, as is the Neal Stephenson blurb, which someone mentioned.
