|I watched The Ghastly Grinner after school...|
|Granted, The Cabin in the Woods was mocking this idea, but you catch my drift.|
|Detention is the single most offensive film to my generation. Period.|
|Sure, Tamara was bullied...but don't act like you weren't pushed in a locker 20 years ago.|

Did you know that today's teenager is totally selfish and only cares about themselves? Yeah, despite the fact that more teenagers today spend their summers doing community service than going to a summer camp, we're totally a bunch of self-obsessed assholes. "Teenagers today don't move out of their parents' homes and are a bunch of free-loaders!" you my cry, but what these horror movies DON'T show about today's modern teen is the ridiculous amount of shit that we have to deal with that effects our future that the teens that came before us never have to experience. Student loan debt is at an all time high and most teenagers are graduating owing a god damn house before they ever step out of mom & dad's front door. Why are we still living at home? Because we can't fucking afford to live anywhere else. Screenwriters see this idea of a free-loading teen and write characters that are whiny, constantly looking for ways to weasel themselves out of responsibility, and inattentive parents that give their kids whatever they want. Sorry, but that's not how it is. It's really, really not.

I'm not trying to say that teenagers today aren't a bunch of toolbags, because they are, but so were every other generation of teenagers that came before us. I'd just like to see a little more depth into my generation, because I promise you, we're not nearly as vapid as the films would make us out to be.
