Shooter…

Posted in Current Events, Movies, Music at 11:20 pm by sonofthed

Well after going to the movies last night, I had planned to post a review of the movie Shooter. I still plan to, but today’s events require me to postpone that for a bit.

I’m pretty much disgusted by what happened today in Virginia. I mean, I know a lot of people from rough neighborhoods see college as a way to escape that kind of fate. You don’t expect to be in a Fluid Dynamics course and catch a bullet. I guess it just goes to show you that no place is really safe. And of course everybody, myself included, wants to know why. But really, does it matter? No conclusion that the detectives come to is gonna make us all go “oh, well in that case…” Sick stupid fucker. Anyway.

Condolences to the families of the victims. As things develop, I may have more to say.

Great movie. I mean, it was somewhat unique. Gov’t conspiracies have been done to death but it was nicely executed. Mark Wahlberg did an excellent job. I really liked the pace. There wasn’t much of a dull moment once the movie got rolling. My main criticism would probably be that the last scene was pretty much unnecessary. I mean, I guess it was “justice” but it was kind of overkill. And another gratuitous explosion. Bob Lee was a badass though, that’s for sure. I give it 4/5

And, in closing, the song that’s been stuck in my head since I saw the movie..and it wasn’t even in the movie. Ladies and gentlemen:

Shooter by Lil Wayne and Robin Thicke
