I'd buy that for a dollar

At Innis College, a building part of the University of Toronto, it was double feature movie night. A free night of movies put on by a cinema group at UofT. The two movies were Robocop and Starship Troopers.

As noted by the movie geek before the films were shown, both movies were directed by the same director (Paul Verhoven), had the same visual effects company (Phil Tippet) and had the same movie composer (the same guy that did Conan the barbarian).

It was interesting to be around film geeks that were so passionate about a few movies. It then occurred to me that Darryl, Robin and me were a small minority of the entire group watching the films that were old enough to see the films in the theatre the first time. Yikes!

Somewhere I actually have a polaroid photo of me at the premiere movie showing of RoboCop at the now defunct Plaza theatre. In the picture was me standing next to a guy shorter than me in a RoboCop outfit.

"Bin there done that"

Chris and Robin at Xulah

After the two movies we met up with Chris and ended up at the new Xelua, a vietnamese restaurant.

Starship Troopers was absolutely hilarious. (Not so sure about RoboCop. That is my girl side coming through.)
