The Decline and Fall of Western Civilization, as shown in movie reviews...

EDIT: It appears, looking at the Huffington Post review, that the misspelling is in-movie deliberate. Megamind himself names the new superbeing "Titan", but the person in question is... perhaps not that educated and assumes he means "Tighten", and this is the way he thinks of the name. So... yeah.


james_nicoll  pointed this out, but I couldn't believe he might be referring to, well, REAL reviews by actual noticeable organizations (as opposed to web reviews, IMDB stuff, etc.). But several reviews of the movie Megamind, including one from the L.A. Times, mention that the name of Megamind's replacement-for-his-nemesis is "Tighten".

Tighten?

That's TITAN, you microcephalic imbeciles! As in immense, powerful? As in from Greek Mythology? The beings that were the progenitors/rivals of the GODS?

*buries face in hands*

What DO they teach them in these schools? Get off my lawn! Back in MY day we had to read Greek Myths as bedtime stories! (No, Timmy, not as recent history, that was MY father, get a sense of TIME, will you?)
