Great Creativity…Epic Revenge

Now we want to make it clear that here at Revenge Towers we are very proud to support the boys in blue that protect people all over the world because frankly there are enough people trying to stick the boot into them most of the time and we think they do a heck of a job. However, as with a lot of areas, when politics gets involved we aren’t such a fan, and the politics of policing is no different, which is why we are such a fan of unassuming Brian McCrary of Bluff City in Tennessee.

Now the drama starts to unfold in 2010 when Brian received a belated ticket from months beforehand. The Bluff City area already had a fairly unsavory reputation for using surveillance cameras and speed traps to try and collect revenue and given how late this was Brian was pretty intent on having a word or two with someone high up. As a result, he went on the local PD website to try and find a non-emergency phone number with a view to giving them an earful.

However, while he didn’t find the number he was after he did find something of interest because there was a little message saying that the police department website was about to be up for grabs because the domain was literally just about to expire.

You might be wondering how on earth this was interesting to someone who wanted to have a rant about a desperately late speeding ticket but that is probably because we hadn’t mentioned yet what Brian does for a living…

Brian is a Computer Network Designer.

The upshot of this is that we have the ideal conditions for something of a perfect storm. In fact, so far as ideal timing goes it is hard to imagine something better. Within a few days of this discovery the Bluff County Police Department website mysteriously went quite off message. Rather than handing out information about policy and policing news it suddenly had a very different agenda. Plastered across the page was information about where you can find the speeding cameras in the area, where the police most frequently set up their speed traps and why these cameras are such a plague.

Now, a lot of people found this quite funny and supported Brian, but it only really became news when he posted some articles which told the truth about the huge sums of money that these cameras were generating. Even more interestingly, it transpired that 50% of that revenue was going to the company who sold the cameras, rather than the usual practice of using it to help prevent accidents and increase speed awareness.

The best thing about this story is that the police were oblivious until the reporters came knocking on the door. They had received a grand total of 7 emails telling them that they needed to renew their domain name rights but nobody ever got round to sorting it out. This of course meant that everything that Brian had done was completely legal and as his website became national news he found that tens of thousands of people would log onto his site every day to find out about the speed cameras in their area.

His website is still up and running and if you want to check it out click on this link, but whatever you do, celebrate the great revenge work done here.

Top 10 Revenge Movie Classics!

You’ve had a long day and work and you want to kick back with some really good films but you don’t know what to watch. We’ve all been there, so here are our top 10 revenge films to help give you a few bits and pieces to watch over the next few weeks.

10)  The Count of Monte Cristo

The 2002 retelling of the Dumas classic directed by Kevin Reynolds has a great cast and is of course a classic story. After a sailor is framed for treason by his best mate his revenge eats at him in prison and when he breaks out he angles everything towards trying to bring down the man who he shared everything with but ultimately sent him to jail.

9)  Carrie

This 1976 Brian de Palma film is based on Stephen King so you can be certain that it is going to be high on gore and pretty high on shocks. The story follows a school student who is hampered by a vicious classmate and an overbearing mother, but she uses her telekinetic powers to unleash the prom night from hell.

8)  Cape Fear

Directed by J. Lee Thompson this film follows the fortunes of Sam Bowden and his family who are terrorised by a career criminal played by Robert Mitchum. Bowden helped to put the criminal behind bars and this is a classic tale of a bad guy out for revenge. It was remade in 1991 by Martin Scorsese but despite the cast he had at his disposal we think that the best bet will always be the original.

7)Mad Max

It’s the movie that made Mel Gibson’s name. It went on to spawn another 2 films as Gibson plays cop Max Rockatansky who is out to avenge the murder of his family but a brutal biker gang. Packed full of classic lines and great action sequences this is a top film.

6)  Oldboy

This isn’t that well known but it’s a great South Korean film. This is the second in a trilogy but you don’t need to watch the first to appreciate the quality of this film. An ordinary man is secretly imprisoned and he teaches himself to fight which has serious repercussionsfor his captors when he finally breaks free.

5)  Ben-Hur

You have probably watched this already. If you haven’t, watch it tonight. Set in ancient Judea it follows the journey of a Jewish prince trying to find his way back to normality in a world dominated by the Roman Empire.

4)  Death Wish

Another classic. It’s the film most people think of when they hear the word ‘revenge’ and with good reason. It follows a Charlese Bronson character who goes from mild mannered architect to one man war on crime following the murder of his family.

 3)  Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan

This isn’t just a film for Trekkies. It’s a genuinely good movie and it follows the Enterprise as Captain James T. Kirk looks to free some of his crew who have been captured after a secretive science lab is captured. There are all sorts of sub plots and it is well worth a watch.

2)  Once Upon a Time in the West

It’s a 1968 classic deriected by Sergio Leone and stars Henry Fonda in an unusual role as a menacing gunslinger, but he pulls it off with aplomb. There is a lot of amazing camera work and the story ebbs and flows beautifully as this Wild West epic comes to a conclusion.

1)  Kill Bill Vols. 1 and 2

Quentin Tarantino revatilsed the revenge movie franchise with these films. They follow Uma Thurman’s character as she tries to rebuild after being left for dead by her former lover and assassin colleagues at her wedding. A great back to back collection for a weekend afternoon.
