    The Price Of Fame

    I grew up on WWF, GLOW, and basically any pro wrestling show that aired, so when I saw this on Prime, I had to watch it because we loved to hate The Million Dollar Man. Ted was easily one of the best villains in 80s pro wrestling.

    If you came here to hear his story in and out of the ring, move along. This is an emotional intervention that Ted's sons have with him over Ted's Hollywood-fast living when they…

    As another reviewer noted, there's a LOT of God-awful alt-90s hipster music in this film, all from some guy who has to be friends with the director.

    I think the best possible user review for this film nails it in one line: "Pretensioso e mal acabado."

    You don't have to speak Portuguese to recognize the word "pretentious." And "mal" means BAD. Everywhere.

    WTF did I just watch?

    People wander on and off the screen, and it's purely accidental that we ever learn their names. This film showcases weird parties, the world's worst band and lead singer in any language, and incongruent sex. Yes, I used incongruent because…
