    I remember watching this back in college (circa 1998) in order to close out the Jeff Goldblum filmography from my cinema-going repertoire. I don't think I appreciated it much then. But now I quite enjoyed this (Criterion) release.

    On paper it's pretty standard stuff that we've seen before in terms of story. But I like the neonoir feel to it and the characters are all great. I also appreciated the director's flair in the camerwork and soundtrack.

    I can't think…

    Got about 45 minutes in and just couldn't take the amateur hour on display here. Turned it off and played Xbox for a while instead. The acting in Assassin's Creed: Odyssey is better.

    Still corny. Still ridiculous. Still preposterous. Still outrageous. And I love the shit out of it. Love the characters, love the locales, love all the "geeky tech" talk and love the style. Lorraine Bracco is the only thing that bugs in this movie.

    The montage with the spinning phone booths... aw yeah.
