I really enjoyed the movie. I went in expecting the worst, but still hopeful for a miracle. It really hit the target for me. It felt like a return to the world I enjoyed in '82 as a 16 year old theater goer. I enjoyed the music, the cinematography, the story, the depth... My only disappointment...

I did indeed receive a tracking number this evening.
