Apparently I was wrong, but I thought for sure the TV ads this week said it was in theatres this weekend.

Now WTF am I going to see?

I've actually considered boycotting that movie...

I want to see it, but can't get past Travolta' scientologist connections. :|

While I certainly don't agree with his religious delusions, I can separate the artist from his art. I listen to Godsmack even though rumor has it the lead singer is into witchcraft. As long as their art doesn't reflect it, I can appreciate the art separately from the artist.

I am so hyped to see Swordfish but I can't help but to think of his last failure. This movie I'll actually see, let's just hope that I'm not disappointed. Travolta was great in Get Shorty, Pulp Fiction and Face/Off why can't he return to that status?

Nope. From the *producers*, not the directors. Which doesn't mean very much.

Swordfish is directed by Dominic Sena, who was the same guy who directed Gone in 60 Sec. Since I thought Gi60 was total crap, I'll be skipping this one.

I think the two religions are far different. That is a useless analogy. Wicca goes back thousands of years, similar to many main-stream religions. Scientology is much different.

I don't see Wiccan factions trying to get people mprosined for statements made in chat rooms, I don't seen Wiccan murder coverups, the list is endless.

P.S. I don't believe in Wicca either, to each his own.

No it doesn't. Wicca is a modern congolmeration of a dozen long dead religions from historical research.

I don't need to see anything starring that cult freak lousy actor Travolta. He should be with Disco -- long forgotten as a rather embarrasing ugly part of our past.
