    I was just thinking about the best and worst adaptations and this came to mind. It’s good in one way. It’s not a shot for shot rendition of the novel, but it gives off the same vibe. I’m sure it captivated the same audience the novel did.

    Jack Black and Richard Linklater taught me that one Rock show can change the world on a super interpersonal and meaningful level and anyone who disagrees can STEP OFF.
