And killing off Danny Trejo half way through has to be seen as an almost criminal waste of top class action-movie talent. In the end I think Rodriguez did it all far better the first time round, with El Mariachi.





Its a mess especially when compared to Desperado and El Mariachi but on its own its still better than half the movies out there. Worth seeing all the same.

I just watched the Maniac remake. It wasn't good. The POV camera shots were maddening. Hot chicks though.

Right now I'm watching Searching for Sugar Man on Xanax (just got tattooed)

In a rare twist, this film was hands down better than the small short story which quasi-inspired it.

the grapes of wrath


 


this movie famously backfired in the sovet union when stalin showed it-- instead of saying "oh, how horrible they treat the workers" the russians said "wow, in america even the poor have cars."

in any case good movie and typical predatory behavior by the anonymous capitalist machinery. the bank the company the tractors the this the that-- nobody is responsible but everyone gets fucked.

red agitators

have things changed much or do they remain the same?

i probably should read the book.

OLYMPUS HAS FALLEN-- Really violent. Kinda depressing watching 50 people getting shot through the head.

WHITE HOUSE DOWN-- Bloodless violence. Kinda cheap in how they sanitize the gunplay.


So I'm not sure what to think. Please analyze.


(And by the way, people shooting the enemy in the head from fifty feet away seems like amazingly good aim, even for pros. Wild how in recent years the amount of successful headshots has gone up dramatically.)

movies follow what the video games show. they are being out flanked by video games.

It is very hard to hit a basketball sized target at 50 feet, much less a clean headshot in the middle of a firefight./

yeah i remember you(?) asking me(?) about doing that with a pistol. 50 feet = 15 meters. olympic distances are 10, 25 and 50 meters but t's all low caliber weapons with little recoil and nobody shooting back.

i haven't seen the movie so i don't know.

generally speaking, you gotta aim for center mass though. chest.

--Well, it boils down to this: if the filmmakers want someone to die, the shooter has amazing aim. If someone needs to live, not even a spray of machine gun fire will hit the target.

--So you're saying all the head shots are just chest shots that went off the mark?

no, i've no idea but generally people train for center mass because the head is too little and moves more and it's too easy to miss and hit something behind the target instead.

shots to the head are typically a very close range business murder thing

but in the movies, every hero is a fucking sharpshooter and every arab terrorist couldn't hit the ground pointing downwards.
