Legitimately as an adult enjoying the Street Fighter movie. I mean, it is awful. But it knows it’s awful, and is actually kind of smart at times. Plus: Raul Julia! Better than any Bond villain. The world mourns.
We Gen X/Millennials are exceedingly nostalgic, but we truly did have a shared childhood vocabulary of shows, toys, and memories. I also secretly like to think there is a secret, cinematic quality that can be in any film, good or “bad”, to really make it a good story. I believe that a simple but well-told story can elevate any movie of any budget. I guess that’s what I’m really out to do: look in unexpected corners for good stories, and figure out the qualities that they all share. Whether they’re Oscar winners or mindless pop.
