When I was a little kid, there wasn't anyone cooler than Kurt Cobain. No matter what he said or did, there was an unbridled, unfiltered coolness emanating from his being. It's an impossible cool, you either have it or you don't. I've always been fascinated by those that do. Today is the 17th anniversary of his death, and I figured what better time than now to throw Kurt and Courtney up for those who may not have seen it. The documentary focuses on Kurt's suicide and his relationship with Courtney but it also tells a great deal about his personal life, from his adolescence to adulthood. It's a really good film and definitely worth checking out.
It's not a secret that Star Wars Episode 1 is not only a horrible Star Wars movie, it's just a horrible movie in general. Sitting through it is a task, it's so dense and filled with boring political plot points, bad acting and computer graphics. It feels more like an ILM portfolio showcasing CG techniques rather than a film.
I can remember as a kid watching it for the first time and leaving the theater confused. I thought maybe I wasn't watching as careful as I should have been? I dunno what it was but I felt like I missed something because, its Star Wars, isn't it supposed to be good? I thought, "Did I just black out for most of that movie? Was I daydreaming the whole time?" I begged my parents to take me again, so I could see what I surely missed but they wouldn't take me. I had to wait for it to come out on video when I finally realized that it wasn't just me, this shit really does just suck.
