Twitter Capsule: One form of privilege? Having your playlist shuffling and limp nostalgia be granted auteurist significance.

Second Capsule: Certainly I can imagine Everybody Wants Some!! being worse than it is, but I can barely conceive of enjoying it less.

VOR:   Plenty of folks hail the movie's unique approach to collective identity, its nonjudgmental approach to proto-bro culture, its warmth. All debatable, for better and worse.
