    Wasn't it the Japs (or rumour thereof) who said "Why would we invade North America when behind every blade of grass would be a rifleman?"

    I don't know why I watched it.
    I knew Nicholas Cage was in it and he almost always sucks. That and the original was no masterpiece either.

    But I watched Gone in 60 seconds anyway.
    It was really bad!

    I don't know if that's the exact quote, but it certainly captures the spirit of what I have heard through the years. Kind of makes you wonder why the Japanese did Pearl Harbor...wouldn't they have expected retaliation? Who knows.

    Battle on two fronts? Maybe they thought there was a chance, then.

    Checked out The Outpost on Netflix. I generally don't watch newer movies due to their wokeness and this movie did not deliver that. (excluding about 2.5 seconds).

    Would recommend.

    Furious, 2017. Russian movie, voice dubbed. From Wikipedia:

    "The film is based on the period when Kievan Rus' was under control of the Golden Horde. Ryazan knight Evpaty Kolovrat is the leader of the squad, which decides to fight back khan Batu, who has divided Kievan Rus'.

    The plot is based on The Tale of the Destruction of Ryazan, a medieval military tale about the capture of the city of Ryazan by the Mongols in 1237 and is one of the best sources of the Mongol invasion of Kievan Rus' "

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Furious_(2017_film)

    I'm using the Wikipedia description of the film, as it has much more information than the IMDB version. Also, from the way it is written, I think the Wikipedia entry was made by Russians (language and sentences are a little odd).

    So this takes place in the 13th century, when the "Mongol Horde" was led by "khan Batu", not the well known Ghengis Khan. Interesting to learn a bit about the Russians way back then fighting the Mongols.

    Good movie, with a big "but".... it is dubbed in English - while done okay, it is distracting.

    Acting is decent but a bit over done in many places, and the special effects are remarkably good.

    If you like all the Korean - Japanese - Chinese movies that have come out the last 10+ years depicting huge medieval style armies clashing, you will probably like this.

    7/10. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. Love the principal character.

    I agree. I missed it when it came out, but watched it a couple of years ago. Tucked it away in my keeper stash along with The Cabin in the Woods, Jeepers Creepers, and High Tension.

    It's Halloween season... 6/10 and brings back memories from my youth of reading most of the books on the ban list. Yes, Florida had (has?) a banned book list.

    Just watched. Not bad. All I could think about is how does a LEO not have a hand gun.

    They were British. Not having a gun is the rule, not the exception.

    Terminator: Dark Fate.

    This is a tough one. By itself, it is a pretty good scifi action movie, but... compared to previous Terminators, it is just okay. Some interesting (and pretty good) plot / storyline twists.

    Basically, "Sarah Connor" spends the whole movie cracking one liners, including many phrases / lines from previous Terminator movies. Arnold does pretty much the same. The gun room scene, "This is Texas", is laugh out loud funny.

    So.... by itself, certainly an 8 out of 10. Compared to previous movies, probably a 6 out of 10. If that makes sense.

    Borat 2...8.5/10
    I like this silly humor, it was insane in some parts. Overall had some great laughs, and I don't take the anti-trump message seriously

    Watched "Midnight Special" on Netflix. Not what you would expect from the title. Pretty good. A 7 out of 10. Genre is Science Fiction.

    Oscar contender? Probably not. Hilarious? Yes.

    Hitman and Hitman: Agent 47.

    9/10, just because the lead can keep a strait face through all of the action. Its kind of reverse of what happens in life. I think the armaments are characters in the movies also. The action scenes are complicated, with some fine choreography.
