    My cousin in law Michale was talking about this game where you can associate any actor in Hollywood to Kevin Bacon in 6 movies or less. Try it for your self it is amazing. If you get a Bacon score over 3 let me know!:D:D:D

    I try not to think about which actors are playing in movies. It sort of ruins that whole perception of fantasy. If it's real, and those people are actors, it's no longer entertaining. Then, I start finding faults with their acting and/or stunts, etc... If you're intimately familiar with prior movies they've played in, then you start making comparisons. To me, that takes away from all entertainment value. Of course, I'm different... So says my wife. :eek:
