Heathers

Definitely one of the biggest cult movies from those years, I was curious to see how it had aged. I’ll say that I still enjoyed watching it — in the way that I enjoy watching all of these 80s movies, as a nostalgic trip back to the era — but it does feel a lot cheesier than I remembered, with ridiculous dialogue (even for teenagers), and brooding Christian Slater coming off as a joke more than cool or threatening. But this is pretty much “ultimate” Winona Ryder (who I loved so much), and there’s a lot to like here, as a funny parody of high-school life, taken to extremes.
