Film Friday: The Legend of Billie Jean



Fair is Fair! There is absolutely nothing wrong with The Legend of Billie Jean. Nothing. It’s a mid-80s girl-power rebel anthem. Adults are assholes. They don’t understand kids. And the kids band together to fight back. One of their hideouts is an abandoned miniature golf course which had got to be the coolest secret headquarters ever. The Joan of Arc symbolism alone is incredible. Helen Slater’s cropped hair, Christian Slater’s blond hair, a Honda Elite Scooter, all perfection. Do yourself a favor and watch it soon!
