    I'd like to Tripple her horn! If you know what I'm sayin...(I actually have no idea what I'm saying).

    Love Waterworld, and even worse, 'The Postman.' Pluto Nash? Absolutely.

    In the same SNL vein, Joe Dirt has to be one of my favorite all time movies. Yes, I know it sucks. No, I do not care.

    The Postman is one of those films based on a book that manages to somehow be less crazy than the book.

    Along those same lines, Galaxy Quest. It's one of those either you love it or you absolutely hate it type of movies in my experience. Personally, I think it's one of the most underrated sci-fi comedies of all time. I had forgotten just how funny it was until Alan Rickman passed away and I watched it again for nostalgia's sake.

    Water world's hate doesn't come from viewers, but the media in 1995. Months before its release the media was feinding for this film to crash and burn because of its $185 million budget, FAR more than the previous most expensive film ever (True Lies).

    They were calling Waterworld "Fishtar" and "Kevin's Gate" thinking it would bomb, but it did....decent. Not a blockbuster, not a bomb. But an AWESOME Saturday matinee-style film. Loaded with great action and real stunts, it focuses on entertaining instead of characters. Costner's trimaran is cooler than every 007 vehicle combined, that floating city (and the battle around it) was awesome AND....The Exxon Valdez.

    The summer of '95 had otherfun flicks: Braveheart, Crimson Tide, Die Hard with a Vengeance, Apollo 13, (we also liked Species. Natasha Henstridge FTW) but of course the biggest film was Batman Forever. Yecccccch.

    "I'm not even supposed to be here. I'm just "Crewman Number Six." I'm expendable. I'm the guy in the episode who dies to prove how serious the situation is. I've gotta get outta here."

    Practically everyone I've ever talked to who has seen Galaxy Quest loved it. It's just a great movie. Fun for comedy fans, fun for sci-fi nuts and fanboys. A deft satire Especially Sam Rockwell, Rickman and Tony Shaloub.

    LOOK AROUND, CAN YOU CONSTRUCT A RUDIMENTARY LATHE?!?!

    IS THERE AIR?!??! YOU DON'T KNOW!!!

    Gold. They need to release the R-rated version.

    Remember also, that at this point, overseas sales for this, especially the Chinese, who thought it was fucking hilarious and cool with the explosions, jet ski chases and bad subtitles, blew that movie further up the ladder. Also recall this: Transformers: Age of Extinction, for another example, made 1.977 billion in China. You can have a local-soil box office fart which slays overseas.
