    A dirty, hopeless hell-ride for the sinners on and offscreen (you!) Hypothetically, During his “yup, nope” song that went viral amid last summer’s global pandemic (outcome pending), E-40 would have had “yup!” to say about this over-looked masterpiece!

    yes: this is a true story; but — I think... it is about Steven Spielberg!

    A very funny movie that still gives you the thrill of feeling like you are actually in space. The same compliment cannot even be given to most actual Star Trek films, which is why I’ve heard more than a few times that this is “the best Star Trek movie.” I don’t know if that is fair to say, but I’d personally much rather watch this over most any actual Trek-lore.

    Only watched the second hour after coming home and it was on in living room love this movie best Al Pacino feels like a true amalgam of the fade of a hopeful mid 60’s and America’s general agreement on the dystopic level of corruption within our government. Feels prescient! I don’t know if this is the true encapsulation of post Vietnam but in my simple mind this movie is what I think post Vietnam USA must have felt like. I took…
