I haven't read the book and I still think that's funny

Now I'm curious.
Four not enough because... It sucks!
Or four not enough because It's wonderful!

Srsly who cares anymore
Glad I pirated it
Prometheus, your trailer lied
White blorb wants hantai

Why nothing makes sense
D**khead snake wants cuddles
Black goo spiced cocktail

Most people hate the Magicians because most (not all) of the mysteries and plots end realistically (badly or depressingly as they say). But the writing is great, it has the deepest most alive characters I've read and the story is so unique and.awesome. Its currently my "the best book I have ever read."
 It's wonderful!

Absolutely loved 'run to the side'. I remember sitting there in the cinema, both Lejays17 and I screaming at the screen,  'run to the side!'

Yes! Because I was viewing it on my computer, at that stage I was knitting. I distinctly remember putting my needles down to watch this scene and thinking "seriously? In the whole crew who worked on that shoot and its special effects, no one saw this or convinced R. Scott that this was indecent?

Hell that movie had amazing potential. I'm still angry about it!

Dr Chill, that's alright to like it. Have you seen the Cinemasins video about it, "everything wrong with Prometheus"? They murder it a bit. The honest trailer on it is also mint!!!

Here for Interstellar :

Mind blown to pieces
Still thinking about it
Still re-piecing my mind
Worth owning a theatre
Music makes me cry
Die Michael Caine die
Stop force fed poetry
All blackholes are beautiful
Surfer dudes on Miller
Wave of a lifetime
Matt Damon meets frozen

Honest trailer was very funny.  But what is the "run to the left" business?
