    Writing this in the theater, had to get my thoughts down immediately. 

    Saw it in glorious 4K in IMAX! Not very often does an opportunity to see your favorite movie ever in IMAX come along, and I’m so glad I took it. 


    When I first saw this film in 2003 at the midnight showing, my friend Peter and I sat in awe of it for hours. We were left stunned and speechless. That same feeling came over me tonight. I…

    Okay, I guess welcome to my top 20 all-time movie list, RHPS. Holy fuck. Guess I gotta go to one of the legendary midnight showing’s now. Tim Curry legitimately had one of the greatest performances I’ve ever see.  So damn commanding and incredible.

The only thing it had going for it was the more technical elements which were solid and I liked the score. Lupita was good too. Other than that, this was a damn mess and whatever philosophical element they were trying to push was lost in corny jokes, lack of any real thrill, tropes, and a stupid twist. This is going…

    Why oh why couldn’t this have been twice as long?

    Cinematography: A
    Score: A
    Story: A
    Editing: D-

    We needed more depth, more character building. 

    Overall, I loved this, it was enrapturing...it just needed more time setting the table that simply can’t be provided at this length.


    I do hate to only talk about the negative in this review, so I’ll add that the 4:3 and B&W really do add a lot to the movie (and this is coming from…
