  1. Some bad movies though, are worth it for the train-wreck effect. 😀

  2. There is a movie my kids showed us which none of can remember the name of now, and the one thing that’s worth seeing in it is the collapse, floor by floor, of an apartment building’s worth of bathtubs, stacking each one into the one below like Dixie cups.

    Anyone know what that was? It was otherwise a horrible movie. Quality-wise. I saw it I believe on painkillers after surgery, but the effect was impressive.

    • Was it impressive because you saw it on painkillers?

      Ya know, this could revolutionize the offerings at a movie-house concession stands.

      • No, the painkillers are why I don’t remember enough else about the movie to track it down. The kids claim they can’t either. We tried googling a few obvious things with no luck.

        But I agree – that and earplugs should be sold, along with the popcorn. I wear earplugs any time I go to the movies – all you people are going to be deaf in five years.

        When I lived in Austin, Alamo Drafthouse put on cheap movies (cheap movies, not cheap tickets), but the kicker was they served sandwiches and beer. (Each row of seats had a counter in front of it for plates and drinks.) No painkillers but you throw enough beer down and the effect is pretty much the same.
