Take it Easy

I've always heard that Easy Rider is masterpiece of American cinema. The AFI even went as far as naming it the 88th greatest movie of the 20th century. I watched it this weekend, and I'll have to respectfully disagree with the AFI on this one. I'll defer to fellow Netflix subscriber WR 323380, whose sentiments about the movie matched mine almost exactly. Maybe it was a great movie for its time, but I don't think it has aged very well at all.

Are trying to provoke me here? Was there a better film available for my birthday party in 5th grade? Contempt of court, Hajj.

Easy Rider is about as appropriate for a fifth-grade birthday party as the MC5 are for a middle school graduation dance.
