I first watched this movie by stealing ppv from the cable company.

Anyone remember the old, old cable boxes that only had three buttons, power, channel up and channel down? And the little trick where you pushed both channel buttons down and wedged a penny next to them to hold them down and after 5-10 minutes, it would unscramble the ppv channels? That's how I watched this movie, like, 10 times.

You youngsters with your cable-ready TVs. When I was little we needed a screw driver to hook stuff up to the TV.

Actually, funnily enough, I'll still sit and just stare at fire.

Anyone see The Hurt Locker yet?

Also, we should watch Point Break on an off night. I want to be Johnny Utah when I grow up.

I was late to the cable world. By the time I got it PPV was not easily unscrambable. Including the ... special channels.

I saw Hurt Locker when it came out. I thought it was ok but a friend of mine loved it.

I think a nice quiet night at the bar will calm these vamps down.
