It was OK

I need all of you to stop what you are doing and read this! After 32 long-ass years, I caved and watched THAT movie. You know, the one with the guys and the places and the things. The film everyone and their grandma can’t shut the fuck up about. Well, it was OK.

Now, don’t get your panties in an uproar. I’m not saying it was a steaming pile of dog shit. I mean, it had its moments. But when you’ve been listening to people lose their minds over a movie for most of your life, you can’t help but build up some insanely high expectations. And when you’ve got that hype train chugging along, even a cinematic masterpiece can feel like a bit of a letdown.

I admit, though, watching THAT movie did lead to some deep conversations with family, friends, and random-ass folks I bumped into on the street. Turns out, unsurprisingly, that everyone’s got an opinion on this bad boy. It’s incredible how something can be so damn polarizing — either people think it’s the best thing since sliced bread, or they’re on my side, feeling like it was just OK then, and it’s still just OK now.
