If you could legally kill one person...

That's the premise of this indie film on Kickstarter now.

http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/...-the-one-movie

Scroll down to the second video and watch the trailer. Looks really interesting to me. It's hard to tell if this movie will play it more for dark humor at the absurdity of the premise, or actually raise interesting points about the value of life. Maybe a little of both.

Anyway, a friend of mine is involved in making it, and I know he'd appreciate any support you all are willing to give. Thanks!

Looking for a way to get casual players involved in Heroscape? Do your opponents lack the interest or knowledge to build/draft their own armies? If so, check out Project 500!

Re: If you could legally kill one person...

Tough decision. Assuming we go for who I hate the most... still. The value of life is not to be under-valued, but there are certain human beings that incite a great deal of unnecessary hate, or kill vast amounts of people, or just plain should not exist. Then again, I'd be okay with leaving these folks in the middle of a jungle with nothing more than flip-flops and a plastic spoon... Here's my top 3.

1) Bashar al Assad
2) Glenn Beck
3) The Brothers Koch (I count these as one evil being)

The movie looks very interesting. I'd definitely go see it. If it can balance equal parts moral question and dark humor, all the better.

Pit Bull. His music is terrible and he's just a generally dislikable person.

Have you read any interview of Pitbull? I generally don't like his music either, but he is a good person. And really, killing a sub-par artist is what you'd go for? Just change the radio station and do something useful with your one kill.

Obama. And why Glenn Beck?
I don't mean to get political, but what was your reason for listing Obama as the single person you would dispose of? I listed my reason for Beck, the man is a hate-monger. It seems like, no matter your standing in politics, there are butchers in his world that deserve it far more than any politician. A reason for why a tyrant was at the top of my list, not a pundit with no moral compass.
I feel as though this thread could quickly become a flame war. Perhaps it should be locked.

Re: If you could legally kill one person...

Wow, that deteriorated into politics quickly. Maybe the admins should lock this one preemptively...

Re: If you could legally kill one person...

I apologize for even responding to Utger man's post. I deemed the aforementioned post poorly made at the time, and responded all too quickly. Again, my apologies. Please don't lock the thread, I'd like to see where the conversation on the movie and its theme goes. I'm editing my response to Utger man now...

Rashly,
~SoA
