1st time seeing. It was OK. No nostalgia factor. A bit silly, rapey, racist.

#161: Straight Outta Compton - MovieCount 2015



Give 'em all the awards! Great movie. One problem, Easy-E's White Sox hat was an anachronism. It was 1986, not 1991.

#155: I Am Chris Farley - MovieCount 2015

A real treat to watch. Except for the eventual end. Bob Odenkirk's words really say it all.

“With Chris, there’s a limit to how wonderful it is to me. And that limit is when you kill yourself with drugs and alcohol. That’s when it stops being so fucking magical.”

#128: Stargate - MovieCount 2015

The best movie about a tranny that looks like a young Pauly Shore ruling an alien planet. But I don't like seeing Kurt Russell play a jerk, & not a smart-alecky good guy.
