You are a savage creature John Spartan, and I wish for you to leave my domicile now!
I keep forgetting to mention I watched Film Crew: Hollywood After Dark, the new venture from some of the MST gang. I really miss the silhouettes, which is an odd thing to miss? Great cracks, though, well worth my time. Not as good as some of their best MST3K, but I'll take it where I can get it. What a fucking awful movie, too.

Ok, I just paused Premonition to come bitch. I'm three minutes in and I have to bitch. You know what I will never understand in movies or shows? When one member of a couple surprises their significant other by BUYING A HOUSE FOR THE TWO OF THEM. I can't think of something scarier to fuck up. Well, it's just a 30-year-mortgage, I'm sure the place will grow on you. I just don't fucking buy it. Now The West Wing pulled it off nicely when Tobey bought the house his wife had been coveting for years. That would be like D buying me a house on Oak Street in Denton. That, I get. But I mean, however cool or classic the house appears, the layout is kinda crucial, too, not to mention one's overall feel for what is to become their home each and every night.
Sorry, it bugs me.

JESUS. Don't EVER watch that movie.
It's not even that it was all that shit, really. It started out fairly bland and damn, it actually sort of improved as it went along, you know? But two things.
First of all, unless you plan on just opening up your wrists anyway, why bother with this one? OK? And just when I thought it was going to have a pretty decent ending? The movie actually CAME all over itself. And made me watch. And then it slapped me.
Just fucking avoid it altogether, I say.
(But of course she did a great job).
