io9 revisits the Dabney Coleman classic Cloak & Dagger.

Loved that flick. But I haven't seen it in at least 20 years and suspect it would be a disappointment now.

Similar note: Fight Club does not hold up all that well. Not that it's bad or anything, but it's flaws are much more apparent to a non-teenaged me.

We made our kid watch Top Gun tonight. It had been a while since I'd seen it uncut without commercials. I thought it held up very well but I have a soft spot for it because it's one of my all-time favorites.

My kid thought it seemed dated. I'm sure she's right but that still made me feel old.

It is dated because kelly mcgillis was hot.

I saw top gun in the theatre in high school. It was packed. Thigh rubbing was involved I think

You really think he'll have time for Snatch? 31 wouldn't make it 15 minutes.

clay and boston's box discussion reminded me there's one scene that always gets overlooked when funny dumb and dumber scenes are brought up. this one always cracks me up:
