These movies came out while I was in middle school, and were a formative part of my Young Geek identity. I've watched them a number of times. Extended edition, obviously. And I've watched all the special features on the extended DVDs, which have a lot of good stuff in them.

They were a fertile testing ground for my male-centered sexuality, or lack thereof. Not too many women, but I tried them too.

And now I'm re-watching it, with a lot more years of experience and more ability to identify with grown-ups because shit, I'm going that way myself pretty soon. And it's weird and interesting and also has the problem where it wrote a lot of tropes, and so watching it sometimes I'm like "jeez, that trope is old". But it's not, not in this movie.

*chuckle* I was going to say I'm deliberately not going the "I AM OLD" route. But yes. I remember going to the TTT midnight premiere with all my college buddies.

Re: the icon, thanks! I made it because I kept THINKING that whenever I watched that episode...
