Video Games Are Art; Ebert a Fat Bastard, Claims France
By LostToys @ 03:26 PM :: General Gaming :: Comment Now
  The New York Times is reporting that France is looking at video games as being an artform, much to the chagrin of many film, literature, and art critics.
France is proud of its contribution to culture in such forms as existentialism, Impressionism and auteur films. Now the French culture minister wants to add Donkey Kong to his country�s pantheon of high art.

�Call me the minister of video games if you want � I am proud of this,� the minister, Renaud Donnedieu de Vabres, said in an interview last month. �People have looked down on video games for far too long, overlooking their great creativity and cultural value.�

Mr. Donnedieu de Vabres is seeking to have video games recognized as a cultural industry eligible for tax breaks, similar to French cinema.

�Video games are not a mere commercial product,� he insisted. �They are a form of artistic expression involving creation from script writers, designers and directors.�

Morning Brief - Borak Edition
By LostToys @ 12:00 AM :: In-House: Morning Brief :: Comment Now
  It must suck to be normal Hollywood today, as Borat just kicked everyone's ass. Borat was the number one movie in the box office this weekend, and this film was only on 837 screens. It had an average screen attachment rate of $31,511 (this is about the same amount Pirates of the Carribean pulled in over the summer), with a total weekend of $26,375,000. Santa Clause 3, the second largest movie this weekend, opened on 3,458 screens, with an average screen attachment rate of $5,783, for a total box office of $20,000,000. For shame Holllywood, for shame!

Who saw Borat this weekend?
