Annals of Not Aging Well

Tom and I watched "To Live and Die in L.A." on FLIX tonight. It does not hold up well. It actually made me kind of achy. I used the Wang Chung album cover because it more closely matches the opening title than the revisionist history version for sale on poster sites. Willem Dafoe is perfectly villainous - so is the soundtrack. It's a film set in L.A. that never uses Los Angeles and that's a shame. Tom always confuses it for "8 Million Ways to Die" - Hal Ashby's underrated final film. Maybe I'll rent that and do a 22 year out viewing. The 1980s, it's not possible they'll come back, right?
