Safe House for me tonight. We've definitely seen this kind of movie before, but it kept me entertained. Denzel kills it, but that's nothing new.

Yes, I could, but I do like going to the movies. For the record, I went to a 3 p.m showing Saturday afternoon and like Hokeyboy's theater, it was fairly full. We had to sit in the lower bowl. I enjoyed it but it fell short of the best Ghibli movies.

My clues:

1. His name is crazychris88. Nobody has used "chris" on this thread and become soooo...prominent in our site aside from: chris_sc77. Never forget.

2. He may be back for revenge considering my involvement of calling him out and due to the action of...his exile. Not a clue..but...his motivation perhaps.

3. His remarks on rating for certain films. A chris_sc77 trait. They veer very close to the chris of old.

4. His general manner towards some films and great subjectivity on them.

5. While his name is, I heavily believe, a reference to Kill Bill....it's also worth noting that...it's 88. While our previous chris was w/ 77.

6. Also...that he's crazy.


---------

His tiptoeing of certain aspects has led me to believe that he is in fact the exiled one. BUT....without direct say of rating+ running time....the biggest giveaway...it can not be fully solved...yet. I await anxiously for this information to be revealed.

This topic seems destined for Otter

Crazy talk. Robocop has taken on and beaten way tougher machines than the T800. Meanwhile the T800 got its ass kicked by a 90 pound Linda Hamilton.

It's a pretty good flick.

McG is definitely a major hack, but I did like the first Charlie's Angels. And I liked Terminator Salvation a lot more than T3.

Wait. What did you do? PM me that story cos all I know is that he simply vanished one day and there was blood on your shirt.

Remember when we used to ask for IP checks? He's probably covered his tracks that way too.

Crazy? Maybe not so crazy...
has he been dismissive of animated features in general? If so, that might be another piece of evidence.
