So two bad movies in a row for me. Hopefully the next one will get me back up. what is it? Inherit the Wind.
Great. Am I back in 9th grade biology?
I won't really say this is a bad movie - I remember liking it ok when I was in school - but it's the exact opposite movie I needed right then. Sure the idea of an animated porn/evolution courtroom drama double feature is HIGH-larious, but actually sitting through it is a different story. So about 15, 20 minutes in I realized that BNAT is not a magical journey that transcends time and space... it's 11 movies in a row. So after the third reprise of "gimme that old-time religion" and the first time Gene Kelly makes a long-winded speech about freedom (to thunderous applause), i ent out to the lobby, walked around a bit outside, followed Jarrette to his car to look at how much cooler his gift bag was than mine (while he made a comment to the AICN talkback on his phone that would later create controversy) and chatted with the people who also decided to sit this one out.
I think this is the first entry to this journal for a movie that I didn't watch all the way through. Usually if i catch a half hour's worth on cable or something i don't count it... but since it's BNAT (and I actually did this twice), I'm including it for completeness' sake.
