Hello, thread!  It's been a while!  I thought you were dead!  How's the family?

Anyway, I have a confession to make: I enjoy the movie Demolition Man.  I hate the vast majority of Sylvester Stallone movies, and the inclusion of Wesley Snipes doesn't help the cast much in my eyes, but it's a fun and humorous take on Aldous Huxley's Brave New World, which is easily my favorite piece of dystopian fiction.  The movie also provides some good-natured ribbing at the expense of the sheer cheesiness of Hollywood, particularly action films, but also the uber-commercial cultural mindset of the industry.  Given the smug, self-congratulatory nature of the film industry, it's refreshing to see them "riffing" themselves.
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

Here's a few of mine:

Twister
Godzilla (the US one...)
Armageddon


Grapes? I hate grapes, I can't stand grapes. I loathe grapes. All kinds of grapes. I hate green grapes and I hate purple grapes. I hate grapes with seeds, I hate grapes without seeds. I hate them peeled and nonpeeled. I hate them in bunches, one at a time and in small groups of twos and threes.
