    Scion commercials are great and everything but I think a continuous loop of them is a bit excessive (see Covenant link).

    Speaking of Renny Harlin, I still love Die Hard 2.

    Thank you, thank you, for the birthday wishes. I’m still without internet for the next couple days, so no reviews or anything until then.

    Yes, I hate the Butterfly Effect with vengeance.

    Renny Harlin is the best hack director ever. No one saw it, but Mindhunters is possibly the most entertaining piece of trash ever made, and of course Die Hard 2 is the shit.

    Ah, that’s more like it…an endless loop of Verizon commercials. Either Renny Harlin has fallen REALLY far or that website is a piece of shit.
