No, I've never seen that one. Is it good?

One 80s black comedy I really like is Ruthless People, with Bette Midler and Danny DeVito. Must've seen it... many times.

Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure is awesome. It's about two high school kids who have to travel in time to save their history grade and the future.

That's a Broadway play now.
The West won the world not by the superiority of its ideas or values or religion … but rather by its superiority in applying organized violence. Westerners often forget this fact; non-Westerners never do.

I didn't know that. The film's very theatrical, though; I could definitely imagine it as a stage musical.

It has the color of salt soy sauce and pretty much the same taste as well, but you put it on bread or toast as a sandwich spread.

Cool, sounds like something I sort of do already everytime I dip my kaya toast into the eggs (with soy and pepper beaten in)
