    I remember seeing that movie in the theater -- I think it came out just before Christmas -- and thinking how the heck did this get out without an R-rating? Swear words up and down, guy getting shot execution-style in the back of the head, strip-bar scene, wth?

    Really liked the movie, great music, great action, decent story, lots of laughs. Really a summer movie, but came out in December.

    The sequel was OK, but nowhere near the first one.

    The first album given to me was Thriller and the first album I bought was Bad. I was a mad MJ fan.

    And you know what, while I choose to ignore his personal life, his music was, is and shall be iconic. for that I choose to remain a huge fan

    I actually had two copies of Thriller. Not sure why. I think my sister gave me one as a present, but I don't remember buying the other one. My buddy had some wicked audio equipment and so I always had hi-fi tapes of stuff like that.

    I'm sure it was an "R". Maybe in Canada it was 14AA?

    Actually, OJ *was* convicted, so he was found to be guilty. Just not in the criminal case against him, but it was the same crime and the same evidence and testimonies.

    Maybe it's different in the US, but here in Canada in Civil court, you are not found "guilty" or "innocent", but rather "wrong" or "right". Guilt and innocence is for criminal court, in which you are convicted of an offense, and in civil you are deemed to have been in the wrong or right for an action.

    hmm, not an OJ fan here ... he's a complete anger driven control freak show to the max. Not to mention an ignorant hypocrite.

    So when can we start Jacko jokes? Let neely have his hayday lol!
