    FAC Indulgence - Who's going to see Basic Instinct 2 this week-end?!!

    Keep your legs crossed, Basic Instinct 2 opens tonight. Hoo boy. Rottentomatoes gives it a 9% rotten rating. My wife wants to see it, but I am no fan of Sharon Stone, even if she wears no underwear. What about you? The reviews say it's great kitten killing material.

    I saw it the first time, when it was called Basic Instinct. You know, back when Sharon Stone was young and attractive?

    What, it's not like you're gunna do that at the theatre.... Unless you're Pee-wee Herman.

    Don't waste the $8.00. If you want to kill kittens to Susan Stone's remanufactured body, wait for it to come out on DVD and take it to your Den of Depravity.

    Nah, too old for me.

    I'll be watching the F4 and looking in as the kids watch their newly minted copy of The Chronicles of Narnia: The Witch, The Lion and The Wardrobe on our new 30" Sony Wega. (Our old Sharp croaked this past week, so we found the Sony on sale as an "out of the box" item. 40% off- shweeeeeet.)

    (V is for Vendetta) Saw it this weekend. Good movie, a little disturbing in places. Look for the Benny Hill homage.
    When did I go from Luke Skywalker to Obi-Wan Kenobi?

    Nope we saw Ice Age 2 with a bunch of friends.

    Budgie "nailed" this response. I mean he really "laid" it out there......

    How was it? We are supposed to take the 6-year old to it this weekend as part of her birthday.

    Well the group was all adults who loved the first Ice Age, we are Scrat fans. In some ways the movie was better than the first one but not as much Scrat as we would have liked. Good funny night out for adults and the kids in the room seemed to love it.
