When talking about the movie Waterworld in this week's podcast, you mentioned that Dennis Hopper made a good villain. What you should have also pointed out is that it was a Dennis Hopper character in "Speed" who coined the phrase "Pop quiz, hotshot!"

I have a similar story to the "Reservoir Dogs" one. I was sitting in the theater when two guys walked in and sat down two rows behind me. I heard one guy say to the other he was glad they didn't go and see Bad Boys II because of all the gratuitous violence.

The movie that we were going to see was Kill Bill I. They didn't make it to the infamous Tea House scene.

As a dad to a 3-year-old, I can say that there's a term similar to the terrible 2s; it's Threenager. I think I'm going to coin my own term for when my kid reaches 4--Fourrible. I don't know who comes up with this stuff so it might as well be me.

(From The total deaths in "Reservoir Dogs = 12.
Total deaths in "The Last of the Mohicans" = 172.
Sure the policeman in RD was made a little hard of hearing, but I'm sure there's more brutal deaths in Mohicans. The English guy at the end was being burnt alive before DDL shoots him. I think you made the less violent choice.

The most unique way to celebrate Friendship Day would be hold a gathering for your favorate images,quotes, <BR> hd wallpapers,messages,pics,photos and many more... Be that as it may, this thought needs a touch of arranging and exertion as you have to choose where to post(facebook,whatssapp,twitter,instagrame etc..) Once that is done, ring your pals and simply have your indulgence !
