    The more I think about this the dumber it seems, but I still find it hard to dislike. I like the music, and think Sharon Stone is pretty. I don’t remember her acting being this bad though.

    I never thought I could walk into my local theater and choose from E. T., Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory, the original Fast and the Furious, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse,Β and The Fellowship of the Ring all at the same time.Β Then some guy in China eats an undercooked bat* and now here we are. I can't say I'm suffering. I love watching this stuff. Β I've never seen the original Wonka in a theater, or even in High Def. I did…
