On one hand, there’s a cultural criticism part of me that’s a bit annoyed that this ostensible film review was solely about horrible historical inaccuracy and contained only one sentence about the actual cinematic merits of the movie.
On the other hand, given how much I hate the fucking Lost Cause confederate bullshit parade, I really loved the historical accuracy and sheer brio with which this movie was destroyed
1996 - 2006: Usually bought 4 CDs in a binge, listened to 3 of them, always then kinda ignored the last one. Never learned the object lesson of this.
2003 - 2008: Pirated everything, dumped friends’ entire collections into my collection just because I could and it was fun. Listened to maybe 40% of it tops.
2005: Bought entire OMC album for $5 from The Record Exchange because I like “How Bizarre”.
2007 - 2011: Hosted vaguely themed parties, including but not limited to “I’m Sick of 80s Night so Here’s A Bunch of Cheesemo Early 90s Dance Music”, “Goth-Mitzvah”, and “Country BBQ”. All music from these playlists is retained.
2014: I am supposed to be super offended right now because the elegant, deeply personal curation of my music collection has been disrupted by a U2 album.
