Never saw the movie before this, though I have watch MST Overdrawn at the Memory Bank about ten times or so, lol.
I have no problem with classics or b/w movies. I love It's a Wonderful Life and quite a few other classics (okay, mostly Christmas classics).
I could tell the movie lived up to the hype, the movie was obviously very good. Course, I already knew half the dialog (I didn't realize just how much of this movie was over-quoted and referenced!), and half the plot. I didn't find myself getting attached to the movie, but I will definately agree it is a very good movie. I gotta say though... the french anthem scene threw me right out of the movie. I mean... French pride?! I laughed my ass off at that more than any of the riffs. French pride. ROFLMAO
I found I actually enjoyed the atmosphere of the riff. Usually with a crap-fest you can tell the guys are in pain... as are the riff viewers. But with this, it was obvious they liked the movie and felt comfortable. It had the air of a couple guys sitting around late on a weekend night on some couches hanging out with a movie just playing cause it was already on, and they just yell out random crap and laugh and fart and mess around. It made for a more ... pleasant experience than usual.
Now... I have to watch Overdrawn at the Memory Bank again, lol.
