Jason and I saw High Fidelity a few days ago and really liked it. Of course, I’m right in the target market for it, make no mistake. I haven’t read the book (the review linked above makes it sound like I’m the only one who hasn’t), but perhaps I will, now.
100 Years, 100 Stinkers: Add your vote to the poll of the century’s worst movies, brought to you by the folks who bring you the Golden Raspberry Awards. For some strange reason, Roller Boogie is not nominated, while Xanadu is. Come on, Xanadu is the Citizen Kane of roller rink movies, at least when compared with Roller Boogie. (I can’t be the only one that thinks so. Xanadu has a 4.4/10 rating at the IMDB, while Roller Boogie has only a 2.9/10.) Still, I actually like both movies. They bring back fond high school memories.
