“2481 Boasting or bragging is an offense against truth. So is irony aimed at disparaging someone by maliciously caricaturing some aspect of his behavior.”
Does this include mocking someone’s Awful, awful acting, writing, or directing, or video game design, music or art? I’m talking about things similar to what people’s such as those at thatguywiththeglasses.com do. Not just saying “This movie is bad” but parodying it in such a way as to point out its flaws, in a very brutal mocking tone. (Or what if it is in a less brutal tone?) And Does it matter if you say:
“This Acting is horrible”
“This is a horrible Actor”?
Also, is the unlikely thing true that you commit detraction by hurting their reputation as a film-maker?
I’m curious because I kinda want to start a web-series where I review things in a similar way. I’d be meant to entertain third parties who are neither me nor the maker of the works in question, and also myself, in that i’d like watching it later.
As I type this, the question sounds more and more like a stupid question. None the less, I ask.
