    La Cage aux Folles

    ★★★½

    Plot's a little spotty at times but it was nice to watch a movie with normalized, positive LGBT characters at the front and center, especially an older (for the sake of this, I'll say that meaning "pre-new millennium" movie).
    I heard this was also a musical so put this down as another one for "movies I thought were going to be musicals and got severely let down by."

    Okay I'm gonna agree that the bargain-bin not-phil collins songs kinda drag it down but I had not seen this before until tonight and I otherwise thought it was absolutely excellent. Beautifully animated (some weird 2d/3d hybrid stuff that sticks out but I don't think it's aged too horribly), powerful message, and as the kids would say, "hit me right in the feels."

    There's enough kinda dated/cringey stuff that I can't in good conscience give this movie a full four stars based on how I do my ratings, but this was surprisingly very charming. Alternates between being a message of the importance of creative authenticity and community support and being a gigantic shitpost and I love it as both of those things.

    This was dumb as shit and I feel like, as a horror-comedy, it had not nearly enough horror, not nearly enough comedy, and not nearly well-done enough practical effects.
    All that said I had a rollicking good time with this. It's Sloppy Time.
