I thought I'd figure out how to create a thread in here.

As this movie was just on, yes, this laughable thing from 1955 with the "astronaut that turns into a killer cactus" was just on, I thought it would make a good test subject.


On the whole "Quatermass and the Pit" (also billed as: "Five Million Years to Earth") was a MUCH better movie.

Both are available for download or online viewing, but, why kill perfectly good electrons with the first one?

The Pit version:

So, whether you want to or not, the software will spam the first post with a commercial for the movie through the "database".

I hope the board gets paid for that.
