Three sentence movie reviews: Real Genius
I did not see this in my 80s youth, so I had no feelings of nostalgia flowing through me as I watched this. It hasn’t aged well. Upon reflection, I’ve decided that the popcorn scene was probably truly amazing in 1985 in a way that CGI has totally ruined.*
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home, with Matt, who didn’t like it much, either.
*I mean, really! They had to pop all that popcorn! People were employed to figure out a way to do that! The actual popping! Not the making computers make it look like popcorn was popping.

I hate this poster. It’s one of those posters that matches the theme of the movie, but not the movie itself. That building and window wasn’t in the movie!
