Terminator 2 the other day. Man, that has some nightmarish scenes, especially where Sarah Connor is dreaming of the nuclear blast, and you see the wall of fire taking out the buildings, blowing apart the ashes of the people on the playground... yikes.

GOOFUS just whips all the
scarves off while dancing and
gets instantly naked.
GALLANT teases and hints with the
scarves, leaving those he dances for
GOOFUS binds the wrists of his
victims to his bedpost with silk
scarves, just before stabbing them with an icepick.
GALLANT blindfolds his partner in the
kitchen, and seductively shoves
strawberries, bananas, and other food
products down their throats.
