    ★★★★½ Rewatched 23 Apr, 2014

    AWESOME movie!

    As I said on the 2012 podcast, THIS is how you make a "non-fiction" film. I know exactly where it's going and it's still intense.

    What I will say is,

    I would have MAYBE liked to have only waited 2 years for it instead of 7....…

  • Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi 1983

    ★★★½ Added 11

    8 year old me: "This is the single greatest..."
    23 year old me: "...piece of shit! What's with the teddy bears?"

    There's a LOT to like in this film. But there's more to hate.

    Yub Yub.
