Who Will Revisit FIGHT FOR YOUR RIGHT? All of Us, or Just Hard Core Beastie Boys Fans?
We’ve got to admit that our knowledge of and obsession with The Beastie Boys pretty much begins and ends with Licensed to Ill.* But that album is so damn good—at least the parts of it we’ve heard—that we think those guys could trade on that for the rest of their lives.
Apparently, however, the nostalgia for Ill isn’t enough to save the Boys star-studded new short film, Fight For Your Right - Revisited. According to Slashfilm, “Word out of Sundance was that the film ran way too long and was kind of repetitive.” They do go on to admit that this probably won’t matter to Beastie Boys fans, but I wonder how the flick will go over with casual fans like us.
Here’s the trailer:
What do you think? Do you have any interest in seeing this? And how much of that has to do with the cast (which includes Elijah Wood, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, Jack Black, John C. Reilly and Will Ferrell) as opposed to your affection (or lack thereof) of the Beastie Boys?
