This was excellent!
Which, the movie or the review? ;)I admire what the movie is kinda-sorta trying to do, but to see the movie today, with all our modern perspective, this is a very wrongheaded, amateurish effort. I was kinda shocked by how dated it seemed.That is probably at the top of my list of lessons learned since joining filmcritic.com: most 80s and 90s movies are extremely dated, no matter how fond your memories of them are. It is really amazing...the many films I have now reviewed from those two decades (really, the 90s even moreso than the 80s) have come across like fingernails on the blackboard with how over-the-top ridiculous they seem today. The older films somehow hold up...but these one or two decade old movies...ick!
The movie! A classic!
