Could've been trimmed down a bit, but boy oh boy am I glad I went into this blind. Had no idea that this is what it is.
The direction is pure, contemporary Boyle. And I love it. The story isn't bad either, but it's clearly an exercise in nostalgia. It covers all of the iconic bases from the original with a slightly new spin. Hell, Sickboy even call it nostalgia in one scene's dialogue.
It's a sequel I didn't ask for and didn't need. But still, I enjoyed it while it was here.
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.
