Well, it is The Champagne of Beers... but not one of my favorites. Still, at least it's better than water-flavored beer like Natural Light.
It's unfortunate that all reliable sources say that sequel is pretty poor; I mean, even the people who are like me and thought the first wasn't awful at all, say the second is crap.

He said the movie was dumb, but the dialogue was good.
No, not you Rene, quiet down.
Anyway, he was talking at a normal volume during this after a bunch of people were "shhh"-ing the whole crowd, but still, he told me about this not during the 112th time I've seen the 21 Jump Street trailer this year but when the movie started. He finally shut up right before I could make a Golden Child joke about the "chosen one" element of the plot.
Oh, your friend was THAT GUY? Not THE MAIN GUY, but rather one of those ignorant types? That's rather unfortunate, not to mention embarrassing. I'll just imagine you verbally hulking out and berating him for his cluelessness once you left the auditorium, even if that didn't take place.
Still, I am surprised that Chronicle looks better than all the ads I've seen for it. The concept is interesting but the lead characters came across as douches, at least from the advertisements. Maybe I will check it out on the big screen after all. While I haven't gone out to see too many films that way in the past 6 months or so, I've been lucky in that it's been a long while since I've come across loudmouths/idiots while in an auditorium.
Anyhow, I shouldn't have been too worried about Chronicle, given that it was written by Max Landis. Besides having an awesome dad, from listening to a podcast with him on it a few months ago, he made it clear he wasn't a traditional writer who wrote stories with happy endings.
I'll be back late tonight with my customary mentionings of if there were any celebrities at the UFC pay per view. This time I'll be watching it on the big screen in 3D, so I'll also have to say how that experience was.
