A Micro Movie Review

Last night I watched the movie "The Flying Scotsman" on DVD from Netflix.

It was kinda a weird movie, I'm still not sure if it was supposed to be about Obree's cycling career or about his issues with depression -- neither were addressed very well. Also, the movie is really not very faithful to the book.

I recommend reading the book instead, which although not a great book still offers good stories about the author's racing career and gives better insight into his personal demons than the movie adaptation does.

I personally thought this movie sucked ass. There, that's my review. :-)

Save your time, and just watch Breaking Away again!
