I've never lived anywhere remotely close to a 7-Eleven. I grew up about a mile from a Stop N' Go and would consistently bike there for cherry Slush Puppies (winter months included). I've never had a Slurpee... I can't imagine they are terribly different from Icee, though, of which I am a big fan.

Cumberlands>7/11

Cumberlands sells 32 ounce fountain sodas and slurpees for only 85 cents, everyday of the year. Suck on that 7/11.

Never had any here in MN that I recall....but summers growing up in South Dakota we always had them...last time I was there a few months ago, it appears they had all been torn down.

We actually had them here in Minnesota until around 1983 or so. Then Super America or Holiday bought them up or something. Damn them!!! The last time I had a slurpee was in Colorado on my honeymoon 7 years ago. It was a mountain dew slurpee in a glow in the dark hulk cup. Ahh.... Good times.

As both a fan of 80s music and video games, I'd never heard of the Frankie or Thompson Twins games...interesting trivia!

Lol, make your own Slurpee, they are a 100 times better. You can use REAL fruit and if your on a sugar restricted diet Stevia or Xylitol. Oh did I mention the part about how as adults we can add alcohol. Cheers

Blue, RPGWatch got an ad hacked and is being reported as an attack site, since you have some of the same ads, just a heads up.

You can't make a Slurpee without a rotating sub-freezing drum with scraper and a CO2 injector.

Off to see "Predators".

I've been avoiding any trailers or reviews so I can watch it untainted. This is going to sound crazy, but I hope I like at least as much as I liked the 2 AvP movies.

Post a mini-review when you get back.

I enjoyed the first AvP well enough, but only caught about 15 minutes of the second one.

There are a lot of summer movies I want to see this year, more than I recall from years past. Predators doesn't top my list, but it's not at the bottom either.

Predators is good enough. The biggest gripes I have are with the total miscast of Adrian "Big Nose" Brody and the inexplicable inclusion of one... Topher Grace.

Got to disagree, slurp!

Even a quick look on the web shows others disagree, here's just a quick link I grabbed.

I've never owned a blender capable of reducing ice to the consistency required for Icee/Slurpees. Slushies, fine. Slurpee, no.

I dug Predators. A LOT. Of course, I'm a guy who thinks the original Predator with The 'Governator' is cinematic masterpiece. Citizen Kane? Meh.

It has a very similar theme to the original, with the best parts of the 2nd movie thrown in. (Except for Morton Downey - unfortunately he isn't in there. ) It has lots of nods to memorable bits in the first, and the cast is pretty strong across the board. The plot is barely there (then again, if you expect any different from this type of movie you are by definition NOT the target audience) but the action is good without being overdone.

My biggest gripe was the inclusion of Larry 'Morpheus' Fishburne. The guy is a stellar actor and all, but would a lone survivor on a hostile alien world still have moobs visible through a loose shirt after 10 years of scavenging and fighting to survive?

Other than that minor gripe, it's all good. Even if you thought the 2 AvP movies were total pants (I always found them to be better than they are made out to be myself), this movie is a must see for a sci-fi, action, or Predator universe fan imo.

It doesn't have any good one liners. The one liners all amounted to a character (mostly Topher Grace) saying, "What the fuck?" and the audience giggling. I also thought the ending was pretty crappy, what with nobody getting to any choppers.

I thought "Yeah... 5 o'clock... Bitch-raping time." was pretty funny. Of course, it lacked the wit of Arnold's "Stick Around!"

For the next movie, I'd make it Aliens (of Ridley Scott's universe) that are dropped in cages onto Planet Game Preserve, with Elizabeth and Royce caught in the middle.

Wow. That sounds REALLY COOL now that I think about it.
