What was that other movie about the lottery? Yikes!!!

I don't have any of them, what does that make me?

PS. - I used to own Swordfish, but I have sold it on the exchange forum.

I don't have any John Travolta DVDs.
I don't have anything against him; he just hasn't been in any films I like well enough to own. Well, except for Grease, but I'm holding out for an SE.

I'm not a Travolta fan either, but do yourself a favor and rent it, buy it, steal it, whatever. You just have to see this bad mother******!!!

none of the three mentioned...

I came thisclose to getting Swordfish when it was on sale at BB...but my damn procrastination prevented me from placing the order before the sale ended...

Other than that, I own
  • Grease
  • Saturday Night Fever
  • Blow Out [GREAT flick]
  • Broken Arrow
  • Face/Off
  • Get Shorty
  • Urban Cowboy
  • Pulp Fiction
Most of those are pre-Scientology. Coincidence..?

I'm not a huge Travolta fan either, but I still own Pulp Fiction, The General's Daughter, and A Civil Action(which is his best work IMO).

I've got Swordfish, which I love despite it's goofiness.

I have Swordfish because it was a good movie. And because Don Cheadle is The Man.

As for other Travolta:

Face/Off
Broken Arrow
Pulp Fiction
Domestic Disturbance (Vince Vaughn collection)
Thin Red Line
Goldmember

Travolta has been a Scientologist for upwards of three decades. Where are you getting your facts from?

Oops, I forgot about his cameo in that one.
