Tripp Page’s Trial By Netflix, Week 3, Control Alt Delete Review

6 Jul

Tripp’s Review of Control Alt Delete.  We’ll have the list up for voting in the next couple days.  MAJOR SPOILERS AHEAD (but they are only there to save you pain).

Control Alt Delete

Tyler Labine plays Lewis, in the Cameron Labine (Brothers!) film Control Alt Delete.  Lewis has sex with several computers during the course of this film.  Control Alt Delete is a 2008 release about 1999 and Y2K.  Lewis literally has sex with computers.  There really is not much to say about this film that couldn’t be guessed after the first 20 or so minutes (other than Lewis sticks his private part inside  a computer).  Lewis is basically the socially awkward kid that everyone kinda liked in high school. The socially awkward kid that has sex with a computer.  Lewis has a problem with human intercourse, and we are told rather point blankly that this is due to an internet porn addiction.  Mind you, this is in an age where everyone was on dial up, so his type of addiction took some devotion.

As the film drags on, attempting to be a mix of Clerks and Office Space, nothing really ever happens. Lewis does have sex with a computer however.  Follow me for a second. Lewis takes a drill and drills a hole into the front of his computer, his boss’s computer, and his work’s mainframe computer.  He then removes his pants AND HAS SEX WITH THE COMPUTER.  THE WRITER AND DIRECTOR WON A VANCOUVER FILM FEST AWARD FOR A FILM IN WHICH HIS MAIN CHARACTER HAS SEX WITH MULTIPLE COMPUTERS.

Some other things happen in Control Alt Delete.  Like how Lewis breaks up with his girlfriend only to date a girl who has an internet site where people can watch her pee and poop.  Lewis saves the world from Y2K by stopping code from being uploaded to the mainframe computer; by having sex with it. Power button.  Just…the power button.

I can never un-see Control Alt Delete.  Remember that friends, as you go about your daily life, just know, you have never seen anyone have sex with a computer.

    Also, you should know that every time I read the title of your bit I think of the Dark Crystal when all the skesis are yelling “Trial by stone!” except now they’re yelling, “Trial by Netflix! Trial by NETFLIX!”
