Well this just snuck under the radar. And it's by A24 who put out some great shit.

I wanna see this but I have a feeling it's gonna be a tough, tough watch.

It's an A24 flick, you know it's gonna be gritty and high-octane quality.
Zac Efron is slept on as a great actor. He played an eerie Ted Bundy and had a hell of a role in a movie called Gold.

I guess MJF's bad wig will provide a laugh during the other 2 hours of bleakness.

Yeah I'm honestly debating seeing something else on Christmas just because of how horribly bleak this film's gonna be and I don't know if I want that on Christmas, but then again I'm not exactly filled with rays of sunshine as is.

That's funny he finally met Corbin after using him as a running joke on Twitter.

Here's an interview with Holt McCallany, who plays Fritz: https://www.f4wradio.com/free/jnpo234holt.mp3

He went deep into learning about World Class and the Von Erichs so it's interesting what he thinks about the story.

Finally saw it today.

They had to cut out a lot but I understand why they did (I'm honestly glad, in hindsight, that they didn't do anything with Chris, as the movie was quite enough of a downer as is). Whoever played Harley Race fucking NAILED him and I marked out in the theater.

Also, Fritz came off like the human monster that he was, which to me was the most important thing.

Fuck you Fritz.
