Revenge Porn

Also known as: Comeback Story
  [vote for,

Everyone loves a comeback story. So this is a genre of movies, probably starting with one genre establisher, that exaggerates the frustratingness of a series of situations and then creates contrast with a climax of epicly proportional comeuppance. Hmm I may not have expressed that clearly. An example might be a series of screens where the first person shot is stuck in traffic and an increasing series of exaggerated situations occur where the main character is missing opportunities, getting beat out, having to wait through multiple lights etc, and the villain keeps getting rewarded for immoral and unfair behavior and the exaggeration keeps increasing so that the main character's family and aspirations get involved and ultimately of course the fate of the world which is endangered by the stuff that the villain keeps getting away with to an exponentially acceleratingly exaggerated degree. And so of course, when incredulity could not possibly allow even one more wafer thin mint's worth of humble pie, the story line would add in one more small thing that would start a cycle and then a climactic rush of revenge and reward with birthdays and marching bands and 79 virgins etc. Of course the details I am adding are male- oriented but could be androgenized for a real movie.

       I like porn as much as the next guy, but I want mine to include paragraph breaks.

       I doubt that, I really like porns.

       All of what I just read was so very very wrong that I really don't know how to address any of it.   

       Sounds fractal.   

       They say that plain ordinary "romance novels" qualify as porn for the gals. And then there is "military porn" for various guys, with literally-explosive climaxes. So, here we seem to have a definition for "revenge porn". OK.

       The term 'revenge porn' is already in use, describing the practice of uploading compromising photos of one's ex-lover as a form of petty and humiliating revenge. It was recently outlawed in California, among other places.

       [Alterother], yes, I'm aware of the already-existing definition. So? Here at the HalfBakery we think nothing is wrong with creating new definitions....

       Just a roadside stop on my quest to vanquish ambiguity. Ignore me if it bothers you; that seems to work for [bigsleep].
