#2 I actually took my boyz (teenagers at the time) to see Battlefield Earth. I thought it was a piece of crap, but held my review until my youngest said: "well.....that sucked"

#4 Way cool additions, thanks!

I do wonder if general viewers are going to see the parallel with Mohammad (PHEW) cartoons. And the danger of any extreme religion that cannot stand self-examnination or withstand poking fun at self? Yeeesh, most other religions enjoy most those comedians who poke fun at their own characteristics and foibles.

Some make a fortune at this.

But Scientology and Islam; the commonality of inability to accept discussion in any form - humour, criticism, analysis, question or logic. Religions can examine and poke fun at themselves.

Cults can't.

#5 Well I've always been grateful for "Battlefield Earth". It made "Waterworld" and "The Postman" look like friggin masterpieces.
