Movie blog Ultra Culture has issued a ten-point manifesto for the makers of today's teen movies.
Included among the blog's many sensible diktats is, number 4: "The film should comprehend the significance of technology to today's teenagers without going completely overboard and depicting all adolescents as semi-professional hackers." and, perhaps more importantly, "The film should elicit at least some degree of derision from audience members over 40."
Ultra Culture also hails the beginning of a new wave of quality teen movies and, for the benefit of the depressingly young and embarrassingly old alike, lists the waves that went before. Remember Michael Anthony Hall, anyone?
