I rate movies based on if they stirred my 31 year old simmering sentimental soup.

    "And now I'm going to go home and have sex with MY WIFE"

    *because it's 80's and I need to be heterosexual for the viewer to accept me as the hero of this story... oh and I'm not actually a clumsy coward because I'm not gay.

    The movie portraying him not being gay and also a cop as a character reduption didn't age so well, man the 80s were weird and openly bigoted.

    Tim Curry's extravagant performance was absolutely amazing.

    The most stylish CliffsNotes ever.

    Pretty great theaterical experience. The first half of the movie felt like an extended trailer. Thank god the movie theater I went to had an intermission because the quick cuts and extravagant visuals felt quite dizzying after a while. I guess that's the Baz experience.

    Just like most biopics that span the entire lifetime of the subject it's doesn't go below surface level in terms of being a character study. The narration was a miss for me.

    I'll probably never rewatch it, but enjoyed seeing it.

    Sarah Marshall really fucked up my man Pipiopi.

    Alternative ending:
    Camera pans back focusing on Lily Colins walking away from the house... que needle drop...
    🎵Taylor Swift - Babe🎵

    Worth the watch just to see Plemons's performance.

    Interesting and simple enough story about how one thing that leads to another can have a cataclysmic affect on a long enough timeline and the cumulative affect of mistreating a person close to you.

    Even though it's a 90 min movie it didn't…

    About as perfect of a all-round representation of a human being you can make in two hours.
