    Watching on Paladia right now. I haven't seen this shit since like 1982?



    It's still very weird.

    Do you think it's alright?

    You mean the Who movie? With Elton John and such? Didn't care for it. I have the album on vinyl somewhere around here. The original Who version was better.

    Movie sucked. Bdwy was much better, although the last Broadway music arrangement was weak because it didn't follow the original arrangement (no french horns - they had trombones playing the part: really lame and cheap). The dramatization of the story was always crap; the music is really 100% of the piece. In the movie Ann Margret brought it into the sewer.
