    Thanks for the shout-outs! If you liked Piranha, wait till you see Machete! It’s quite the gory, actiony summer, isn’t it? Salt, The Expendales, etc.

      Yeah, it is quite the gory summer. So unlike last year, from what I remember. I am anxiously looking forward to MACHETE! I keep hearing that THE EXPENDABLES is pretty entertaining. SALT – I’ve heard mixed things on, but I’m kinda curious about that one as well.
