Big enough indeed. I suppose it would have helped if my knowledge of '80s movies was better.

Or I could wait for Darren Aronofsky's mysterious 2011 remake, which may or may not actually happen. Not to mention that it's a remake, so it will surely suck. That's a no, then.

Well, it is Aronofsky. I can't say I'm not intrigued, at the very least.

It's strange seeing the same site now looking so soulless without the influence of interesting individuals.
Some sub forums were being spammed to the point where it shut down the site for long periods of time; sometimes an entire day. Even when RTGD was "running" over the last several weeks, pages loaded like molasses and every other click of the mouse was met with a gateway timeout.

RT users have been famously tolerant of the site's numerous glitches over the years. Mostly because of the quality of the people frequenting the place. But this latest meltdown was just over the top, and they still haven't completely resolved the system issues.

Oh, get over it. You're an intelligent guy, and thinking Heino = Gorb just doesn't make any sense. I'm just surprised that you believed it.

Gorb is Heino.

Even though Heino knows more about film than Gorb, it seems.

Regardless, one always follows the other, so they're either the same person or the same person.

Heino seems to follow Gorb around, and I prefer implication over truth, therefore Gorb = Heino. Genie probably knows.

I seem to remember Gorb posting a screencap of the top of his Rotten Tomatoes page where it said "Welcome Hello Heino". Thus, proving he and Heino are one and the same. I thought a lot of people knew this anyway.

Gorb is a professional image manipulator. But while we're on the subject, I have an apology to make to strykes:

Exactly. Its rather obvious.

Troll 2 was on the This! network during the afternoon today. I didn't have time to watch, but I remember how epic awful it truly is.

The Lurker

She sits alone, as she always does, hunched over a mass of pages. Tapping, always tapping. Always alone, and always tapping. The wires from her cassette player snake up from below the table, knotted and worn, finally splitting at a point just below her pale neck. This point, a junction of thin wires, bobs in tandem with a jaw that works furiously in some seemingly methodical motion. Perhaps it is the working and reworking of potential words that causes her soft-skinned jaw to move in such a manner, as she pores over her work, or perhaps it is the moulding and remoulding of chewing gum. No one knows, because of course no one has ever spoken to her. She speaks to no one. From the same lonely desk she watches the lives of her peers unfold in front of her eyes. And yet, even "Peers" might be too strong a word, for it is a word that requires at least a minimal level of social interaction to exist. They flit in and out of the forum's open doors in groups, sometimes of five or more, giggling up and down the dusty aisles and inciting a continuously reproachful glare from the stuffy old lady at the front desk. They crowd around communal desks and dim computer screens, chatting excitedly in a low murmur, a murmur that seems, especially when the weather outside is stormy, to be charged by an electric current. She sees all of this, watches all of this, but does not partake. Even though the urge has often grabbed her.
