03.29.07Terror Thursday This movie is like the exploitation version of Last King of Scotland (not that I've seen Last King of Scotland) made 25 years earlier. The guy who played Amin was... well I won't say he's Forest Whitaker levels of good actor but he seemed to personify the dictator rather well and his laugh is just classic. hah hah hah hah hah this is what happens to bad mommies!

Knowing that everyone shown on-screen really happened makes it a pretty damn creepy and brutal movie to watch... It's basically one innocent guy getting mis-treated and killed after another. It's got a great poster though and the movie's pretty good even though it's unrelenting and feels longer than it is (not because of any pacing issues, but that there's never any real release or humor or anything (other than his laugh hah hah hah hah hah you're so pure you will be my fifth wife). Sucked to be Ugandan in the 70s I guess.

oh yeah, I went to the Weird Al sing-along before this and it was great fun.
