"Global goblet" as someone on the Twitter put it. I didn't see any of it. But besides the diving, what's to hate?

When I lived out there, I did not have even a single slice of decent pizza.  It was all invariably garbage.  Maybe the brick oven pizza out there is also bad.

Come visit us in New York and we’ll try the good stuff: if you still hate it, we can’t be friends anymore and I will spend the rest of my life praying for you to suffer.

Selam

I loved Ferris Bueller's Day Off when if first came out. I was in high school at the time and it was really enjoyable. Revisiting it later I wasn't as impressed. Definitely didn't really stand the test of time. But then again, my sons loved it.

I absolutely hated Fast Times At Ridgemont High. I found it depressing and clichéd and completely spurious. Never understood the hype around it.

As for Dazed and Confused, it remains one of my all time favorite movies. Perfectly captured the spirit and vibe of the 70's. It's one of my go to movies when I get really down and depressed. Richard Linklater (director) knocked it out of the park.

Selam

My favorite Gen-X movie would probably have to be The Doom Generation. The synopsis on the back of the VHS tape sums it up pretty well:

This is a story about a hot chick (Rose McGowan) and her loser boyfriend (James Duval) that begins one night at a nightclub where they listen to techno music. So anyway, they leave the club only to have this bleeding dude (Johnathon Schaech) jump into the back of their car. The chick curses a lot and they visit many fast food restaurants, rob a convenience store and meet up with people. Anyway, in the end, they all become way more than friends and wind up being chased by a bunch of crazy neo-Nazi jocks who want to kill them when all they want to do is ride off smoothly into the sunset eating Doritos. Written and directed by Gregg Araki (director/screenwriter of Mysterious Skin).
