But yeah, there's a lot of leading actor in an action money reach type thing. Like that train movie a couple years ago. Some of them are ok though.

I'm with you on Flight. I just meant in general. I think both are still very capable, but they are signing on to generic shit.

I'm not sure how to rate this because I'm too close to it. I just got into the podcast about two months ago, so I'd heard every tour episode already. There is a depth and breadth to Harmon and the tour that I'm not sure was quite captured properly in the documentary... But I'm not sure it could've been captured in a movie that would please non-fans and fans, and podcast fans. It skims the surface and dips in at a few points. They had over 600 hours of footage.

We basically get some talking head action of celebrities talking about Harmon, a little arc of his career, footage of the tour, and GoPro/pen cam footage of the tour.

It explores a bit of Harmon's self destruction/wanting to please people, his relationships and how he abuses people, some fan interaction, and his Dungeon Master Spencer.

There are what some would call dark portions, and genuinely touching moments (especially with fans). I definitely welled up a couple of times.

I think it's a successful movie and I'd watch it again. However, I don't think it captured Harmon or the tour the way I wanted it to, as impossible as it may have been from a footage standpoint or making it tough for non-fans. I had my own movie and my own experience in my mind from the podcast that each individual probably has, and naturally I can't harm the score for it not being made for me.

In summation, it's a interesting watch if you have any interest in the creator of Community, although it's possible you may come away disliking him. It's a bit meta at points, which is not surprising.

The most amazing moments are the ones with fans. I wish there were more.

I'd give it an 8.0.
I gotta both see this doc and heat the podcast. Thanks for the reminder.

8.25/10. Good movie. The plot holes (which comes with this genre really, frankly) and ending which I didn't care for keep it from being higher. It sucks that it didn't do better in the theaters (where I did want to see it...just never got around to it), because they just won't make movies like this anymore if they don't make money.

x-men: days of future past - 7/10 - was entertaining but was a bit all over the place, didn't tie in well with the other movies and was different from the comics. I found it interesting they went with Apocalypse after the credits considering that story line is kind of similar to days of future past in some ways. Anyway it wasn't great but it was the usual popcorn entertaining movie with not much real substance.

lmfao I wondered the same thing when I watched it..

Went back a couple of times. Tarantino set his went off too early, and they didn't correct it... So it had fans guessing forever. Mr Pink or Mr White..

Btw this is one of my favorite movies, gave it a 8.5 or 9..
