    Holy schnit, I agree with Kep! Very enjoyable afternoon at the movies. A 2-tub of popcorn flick. Would be even better in Imax!

      Pretty much have to watch Serendipity whenever it comes on, as it just did. This one gives "chick flicks" a good name.
      What kind of cheese are you planning to put on top?

        I thought that was Princess Bride?
        Never really developed a taste for tequila. Kind of hard to understand how you make a drink out of something that sharp, inhospitable. Now, bourbon is easy to understand.

            PB is a wonderful flick. I recall renting it for my young daughters and being completely surprised by it. The Miracle Max scene was among Crystal's, best IMO.

              I love that movie. but then again, I'm a chick. It's a little less "chicky" and cookie cutter than a lot of chick flicks.

                It's either a chick flick disguised as a guy flick, or a guy flick disguised as a chick flick.

                Just depends on your point of view.

                  Did anyone see the trailers for "Pan" and not think it would lost a lot of money?

                      Ok, thanks. I'll get to the rest of it.

                      PB is not a chick flick - I've never heard a chick ever quote a line from it.

                                OK, I know on one level that people who complain about continuity lapses in sci-fi movies can be annoying....at the same time, for a franchise as high profile as the Star Wars saga has been, one might expect them to pay a bit more attention to it.

                                In the just-released trailer, a Sith Lord looks at a burnt-out skull with a Vader-style helmet on it and vows "I will finish what you started."

                                Yet at the end of Return of the Jedi they cremated Vader's body. Does this mean that the skull didn't burn down to ashes? that someone from The Dark Side stole Vader's skull from Endor after the cremation ceremony? that dramatic license >> any quibbles over continuity issues?

                                OCD minds want to know!
