  1. i haven't seen any of those movies. what year did hot tub time machine come out in? you loved that movie. also, you should watch COP OUT because you would love that even more.

  2. Have you seen Black Swan yet? I'm the same, I haven't seen it but just know I'll love it. We're going to see it on Friday and I am so excited. Natalie Portman is amazing.
