The Movie

I'd like to talk a bit about the Dick Tracy movie. The one that bombed. You know, Al Pacino as Big Boy Caprice, Warren Beatty as Tracy and Madonna as Breathless Mahoney. Some say it was a bad movie but I thought the visual style and the good performances from Pacino and Dustin Hoffmans as Mumbles lifted it to at least the level of a guilty pleasure. It's not as bad as Battlefield Earth or Super Mario Brothers: The Movie (two movies my roommate likes). And it's worth noting that it was released in the heydey of Madonna's vogue phase. I was a pre-teen and had a thing for Madonna then. So sue me.
