Re: Frasier coming back

We wil see. Of course the preview moment will try to lead us to recognize the old Frasier, but can they actually "reboot" the series? How about Cheers while we're at it? Boston is still there and...

I bet this one is a new low point on the low budget-bad taste scale....early John Waters and Multiple Maniacs. See Divine eat human flesh. It's even better than amyl nitrate.

Re: Godzilla Minus One

It's been a while since I've seen a new Japanese monster movie. Maybe if this one sells (I can't imagine that it won't), we can see a Mothra reboot, followed by Rodan.
