Starsky and Hutch
Just got back from seeing the Sunday matinee of Starsky and Hutch. I think I went into this one with expectations that had been set a little too high. I thought it would be a laugh a minute parody, kinda like a Austin Powers movie, but this was really just a longer, funnier episode of Starsky and Hutch. My wife went into it with low expectations, and ended up being surprised at how much she enjoyed it. I liked it too, but I wanted to really like it. Anything with Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller in it is definitely worth seeing. Plus this has Vince Vaughn and Will Ferrell, and of course, Snoop Dogg. That would be a pretty fun crew to hang out with.

I didn't really watch the original when it was on from 1975-79. I think it was on too late, and since I was only 5-9 during those years, I probably wasn't allowed to stay up and watch it. But I knew the gist of it, and I seem to remember having a matchbox car or two of the famed Grand Turismo.

The soundtrack was pretty cool as well--I mean from a nostalgic standpoint--and had some of the first songs I remember growing up. One of the first songs I remember liking as kid was Starland Vocal Band's "Afternoon Delight", and that was on there. That was the summer of 1976. That was busy summer too, we had that whole bicentennial thing going on. Fuck, am I getting old.
