Experimental band Negativland once said that there's no word more powerful in the world than "free".

We say they're wrong. We say there's no word more powerful than "holy crap".

As in holy crap, there's free movies, free popcorn, and free parking today only at Universal CityWalk.

Take the holy crap outta there and all you have are free movies, free popcorn, free parking today only at Universal CityWalk and it seems hum drum, even though the estimated value of said freebies are like a gazillion dollars these days. Hasn't it always fascinated you that Universal has gotten away with charging people to park as they're about to basically go shopping?

But yes, we called the theater, which is celebrating switching from Loew's to AMC and getting all remodeled and stuff, and the dude said, "yes, all movies today except Spider-Man will be free."

Which didn't really do much for us until we heard another voice on the line, sounding faintly like George Bush say, "holy crap!"

And then we knew it was a good deal.
