A Music Mastermind
In 1997 when I was but a lad of 8 a movie was released called Masterminds. It was quite possibly one of the dumbest movies ever made. From a pre-columbine world where nuts with guns in schools was still acceptable fodder for flicks, Masterminds was a movie about Ozzy, the quintessential angsty teen anti-hero who uses the same delinquent tactics that keep him in trouble with teachers to foil the plans of a British corporate security guy (played by Patrick Stewart) who takes over a prestigious private school (the one Ozzy was expelled from) to hold the millionaires heirs for ransom. Well, when I was young this was a foundational movie for me. One of those movies you watch a million times and you know exactly where it is in the video store (back when we had video stores), a movie I remade a million times over while playing- casting myself as the skateboarding (tho I was on rollerblades), walkie-talkie having, computer hacking hero who saves the people who have tried to thwart him all his life. The badass kid who does the right thing.
