The Return of Gchat Theater

Ritch: Kinda makes two thumbs up look a little tame.
me: More movies should be reviewed with "FULL ERECTION, 100%!"
Ritch: I'd give Showgirls like a 55%
me: Embrace of the Vampire on the other hand...
me: "Soft, but that wasn't really the movie's fault--I've just been really tired and stressed."
Ritch: ha
"Full Erection 100 percent, but I'll qualify that by saying I watched the movie in the back of a slowly rumbling bus."
me: These are the downfalls of the erection-based movie rating system.
Ritch: If you achieve a full erection 100 percent for the entirety of this Ken Burns documentary, consult your physician.
