Shut the fuck up. Red Dawn is real.

Wait, why wouldn't it get a pass? Is there something wrong with offering movie and beers?

I'm at least a five

I read 8-9 books a month with varied themes and even take breaks and read things like Pluto’s Republic. I look at it this way; it’s like reading a novel. I appreciate someone who does their homework on the subject they are writing about. Right now I am reading about a time traveler. I know everyone watches syfi and knows all about time travel. Any way, this new and aspiring author really gave it some thought and the preface started out by describing all the ways you could die trying to travel through time. One example is; we all know that the earth rotates around the sun. If you “blink” out to a different time, where will the earth be in regards to that time in its rotation…are you “lost in space”?

Regardless I despise shows like CSI where they say “the only rifle that can shoot through this glass would be a 30-08”! WTF is a 30-08? Oh, and by-the-by, my pellet gun can shatter that POS window!

I thought the first one was fun. Stupid, but fun. Someone in Hollywood asked "hey-- how could we remake Stallone's "Cobra"... but with modern effects and moral-relativist context?" And John Wick was born.

I liked the escapist/unrealistic personalities, and the escapist/unrealistic super-ninja fight sequences... because we all deserve a good escapist/unrealistic break from reality once in a while.

I'm looking forward to the second one. I bet I'll like it too. 'Course I grew up on Mack Bolan, so...

Saw JW2 on Fri. Pretty cool. Once the, uh, dogs were let loose in the last 1/4, it was kinda like 'we know exactly why the audience is here, so lets give it to them, all of it'. Love the 'sommelier', lol. I want my own. Best line: 'I have to ask one question: are you here for the pope?'.

I did like how he got truly fucked, used drugs to keep going, etc in the first one. They didn't bother in this one.

Fun stuff.

Holy crap! I forgot about those books. I read the hell out of them in middle school. Tried to do every book report on which ever I was reading at the time.

I need to find them for my boys to read.

FINALLY, available for rent or purchase at most digital outlets.

So I finally got my John Wick fix and it was definitely bad ass. I had a bunch of spoiler alert questions to ask, but didn't write the down. I will post them next time I watch it.
