Men are more likely to go back in time and kill Hitler than women are, says an actual study that really exists. While Hitler certainly needs to be dealt with, said the majority of the women in the story, there's surely another way to do that than straight up shooting the sumbitch dead.

Showgirls at Alamo Drafthouse
With its NC-17 rating, Showgirls didn't stand much of a shot at the boxoffice, even if it had been any good. Unfortunately, Paul Verhoeven's epic fleshpile was an almost completely irredeemable pile of shit. Notice we said almost. In subsequent years the film the film's grown into a cult phenomen thanks, in part, to writer/storyteller David Schmader's live criticism of the film, which he first performed in Seattle in 1999. Since then his comedic annotation/analysis of the film has earned a cult status in and of itself. He'll perform it live in the theater at this screening. — CG
