Grumpy Cat's upcoming Christmas special could be the death of cinema

Scene: a theater full of people, laughing at images of butts with farting noises played as a soundtrack. It's satire from the world of Idiocracy, but we may not be that far off -- Lifetime has decided to make an actual motion picture out of a cat-meme. Grumpy Cat's Worst Christmas Ever, due out this holiday, is ushering us into an era of cinema where image-macros and animals with comical bone structure are considered legitimate foundations for motion pictures. It's bound to be a terrible age, but we shouldn't be surprised: we live in a world where crypto-currencies and media empires hail from similar beginnings. Lifetime president Arturo Interian expects the film to bring a "fun and irreverence" to the channel that its heartfelt programming typically lacks, explaining the film will a mash up between "Home Alone" and "Die Hard." Oh, and the script is being penned by one of the names behind Spongebob Squarepants: the Movie. Joy.
