    The Color Purple 1985

    ★★★★ Watched 14 Jun, 2015

    Of course it's a lovely movie, but I'd gone thirty years without ever seeing it. Thankfully a weekend of screenings at the theater two blocks from my apartment offered a perfect opportunity to right that wrong.

    Glover in the least likable role I've ever seen him play. Whoopi being just great in the lead. Oprah being A BOSS like she always has and always will be.

    I was surprised at the amount of slapstick in this one. Not that it's…

    I'm pretty sure I saw this in the theater as a kid. If not, there were at least a couple of VHS viewings. Boy--it is not very good, is it? Urich tries, I guess, and Ron Perlman as a fey space-chef is kind of an interesting curiosity.

    Oh, and there's a jive-talking pimpbot. So that's something.

    This was such fun to see projected! It plays really well to a crowd. There are a couple of REALLY '80s lines that are somewhat awkward these days, but otherwise, it was a great time at the movies.
