Should have been bolder and gayer
The movie is too safe and pg13 for story it covers (or should cover).
And it's too bad because it could have been truly great.
Doesn't really do justice to the source material by sterilizing everything, it's as hip as a mom trying to be cool with a son by buying him the clean version of his favorite rapper album.
I don't like to critique movies for what they should have been, but this one, based on this story and these people, really should have been different and dared more. It feels as authentic as times square today compared to what it was in the '70s.
I don't think Freddy would approve.
