Bad: I love "Criminal Minds" but god drat do we get the Glock hammer-cock sound EVERY loving TIME.

Good: "Blood Diamond" was one of the very few movies I've seen that had press-checks. "Shoot 'em Up" wasn't meant to be taken seriously but had a few good points, also Paul Giamotti was loving hysterical in it so that helps.

Live Free and Die Hard

In fairness, absolutely nobody was expecting this movie to be anywhere close to realistic, and as long as it featured Justin Long writhing and screaming because he took a bullet in the leg, I was 100% happy with it.

There are two Mythbusters episodes that come to mind: one about trying to get bullets to ricochet back to the shooter by making 3 90-degree bounces (Spoiler: fat chance). Another is the one about shooting into the air and having the bullet come back to earth to kill someone. Movies do dumb poo poo with bullet physics all the time, and I'm glad those guys address it in a fun way.

Mythbusters doing a gun myth that isn't either:

A: Retardedly unsafe
B: Just plain wrong

is pretty rare, take most things they say with a grain of salt.

Sniper: Everything in the loving film. The only way that movie will come anywhere near being about real snipers is if you put the DVD out on a 500 yard line and get a trained rifleman to blow it into shreds.

I don't disagree with a thing here, but pointing his rifle at his buddy right at the end was pretty funny with the "You're zeroed for a thousand rounds, might want to aim a bit lower..." line.

I may have missed it, but I don't think anyone mentioned the Max Payne movie that gave rise to the Judge, and probably a ton of the myths surrounding it.

On the good side, the Thomas Jane "Punisher" movie was pretty cheesy overall, but after shooting a guy with both barrels of a sawed-off SxS, he just tosses the gun instead of having more magical buckshot rounds somehow in the gun, so that was a nice touch.

Yes, and be sure to bring any fanboyism you have for any of the actors in the movie.

Jet Li's bits in the film put a big grin on my face, he can be funny when he wants to.

I love Jet as much as anyone but didn't he say like years ago that he was going to stop doing action movies? Not that I'm complaining, just could swear he said that.

Saw "Safe House" last night. Personally I don't mind shakycam but I can see why it'd annoy people. Tons of Glock 19 and Sig 229 porn. Like... I think I-71 said, suppressed guns sound like they should.

The plot is pretty standard CIA conspiracy stuff but Denzel is goddamn great.

Casino Royale was a really refreshing restart to it all but yeah the gritty/angsty stuff is wearing thin. Rumor has it that Daniel Craig wants to be done with Bond movies either by this film or the next one.

Fun fact from IMDB

quote:

Offered the role of Darth Vader, but turned it down in favor of playing Jaws. He preferred Jaws because he felt he could bring more to the role, where Vader would have confined his performance by acting behind a mask.

Watching a ton of movies on netflix. A lot of them where people kick people.

"Oldboy" is the most ending I've seen in a while.

"Flashpoint" owns. Donnie Yen owns. "Ip Man" is also a solid, if somewhat generic, kung fu movie, but it's set in Occupied China, so that's pretty cool.

If you've seen "Sports Night", you've seen "Newsroom". It's basically pure, uncut Sorkin.

Whether or not that's a good thing is really up to the viewer themselves but there you are.
