We made a dark promise to one another after the first one that we’d watch the next one. Guess we’re just twisted, like the allegedly beautiful mind of James Gunn. Was it as crappy, or just stinky? These are the questions you are dying to know.

“The John is good! The Alexx is evil! The Alexx shoots seeds and makes new life to poison the earth with a plague of men, as once it was. But the John shoots death and purifies the earth. . . . Zardoz has spoken.”
