I mean, I don't see why this bothers late 80's/90's kids, considering their generation will be remembered for "rad" and "attitude". And I'm sure your parents thought your stuff was dumb too.
Your generation? The guy is a throw back to punk 70's movement IE Ninja Theories directors generation. It has nothing to do with modern movements at all. The guy is more outdated then DMC 1 Dante because at least the romantic mercenary, and 80's club scene are still alive today in some form.
