Baywatch ★★

the strangest thing about this movie isnt that its bad (of course its bad its fucking baywatch) its the fact this is almost a competent piece of work, the first half hour proceeds as how this movie in a perfect world should be: a cheesy stupid yet fun look at the 90s world of television almost satirising it within its overt sexualisation yet it treats the entire subject with care. yet for some reason half an hour through it gets rid of the nostalgia piece and ends up being a really stupid crime thriller where it becomes super politically muddled and stops everything else it had once set out (the sexualisation of particularly woman is still there though which left a really bad taste in my mouth) its strange of how good this could have been if they actually stopped trying to appeal to the mainstream and kept what they were already given.
