Mike’s Movie Reviews: Retro Edition

A long time ago, back when I was a fledgling writer, that wasn’t yesterday, I would write things that I thought were funny all the time. Of course, some of them were, I’m sure, but a lot of it was just me constantly writing, writing, writing. And back in the heyday of Facebook (remember those days?), they had a bunch of applications and such that you could play games, or whatever they did. And one of them was a Movies application. I forget the name of it. But on it you could take stupid quizzes and stuff, rate movies, judge your tastes against your friends’. Things like that. At this point, I was pretty pretentious about my film tastes. It was my first year away from home, and I was used to people who watched the shittiest dribble possible and loved it. And I, having seen like thirty more good films than they did, felt I was better than them. Naturally, those movies I saw were the same thirty films that anyone getting into film sees and loves when they’re first starting out. But, the point there is, because I had that chip on my shoulder, it allowed me to start berating other films. And we all know how that turns out.

In fact, for those who enjoy my beratement of movies — good movies, bad movies, whatever. I take humor where I can get it — these reviews are essentially an earlier version of what I do now. Any kind of wordplay or minor flaw in logic that I can find is blown up, exaggerated and made fun of. That’s just how I am. I find it fun. I don’t care if you do. (more…)
