Bigbirdman (or the unexpected virtue of orange pants)

I was disappointed in the movie Birdman. Advertised as ‘hilarious’, I found it a little bit dull and self indulgent (Oscar bait of the highest order).

But sometimes a parody like BigBirdMan comes along and hits the nail so flatly on the head that you will probably never look at the original work in the same way again. I actually think I have a higher regard for the movie now that I have seen it lampooned in this way.

    I need to watch it again because I think the advertising made me go in looking for something that it wasn’t. Far too artsy-fartsy overall though.

What do you think?
