i’ll be brief.
i had the most fun i’ve ever had in a movie theater, watching this movie just now. and that includes over a hundred viewings of the rocky horror picture show. it’s the most perfect summer movie imaginable–the tone and the script are dead on target.
it’s the quintessential example of a movie as entertainment. as such, there’s not a reason in the world why it shouldn’t get a best picture oscar nod.
i’m serious. it’s that good. go see it. get rowdy, yell at the screen, go bonkers, have a blast.
update: so much for hype. number one, but with a paltry $15 million at the box office. oh well. maybe it will have legs.
i was hoping for more, and so was our stock price.
