Most Arnie/Stallone films also - OK, most of the later ones (Demo man, True Lies) weren't brilliant back then, but today they're downright terrible.

The best thing about Superman 2 is the sheer number and obviousness of the Marlboro product placements in what is supposed to be a children's movie. Lois Lane's desk in that movie had more tobacco on it than the state of North Carolina.

I'm going to have to strongly disagree with you on this. That's really ignorant to just blanket all doctors with such predjudice.


Yet to make the same blanket statement about Fry-o-Lator operators is OK? Why? Because they're often not rich, white and educated?

Just remember: doctors are just like the guys who run the Fry-O-Lator at McDonald's.

I'll never get there either. I have a 60, but don't have the time to raid 5 days a week or PvP constantly to get enough rank or reputation to get the goodies there. I'll just get what I can and leave it at that.
