Them John Wick boys get around! One of the movie’s two directors is directing Deadpool 2. Now the other has been attached to the Highlander reboot.
Thanks to the work of most of the OL community, I walked out of Prometheus yesterday not nearly as disappointed as I probably should have. I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t like. I would probably watch it again if it was on TV or at a friend hosted movie night. I won’t go out of my way to see it however. That train of thought got me thinking though. A while back I posted a High 5 that involved movies that other people like and I hated. What about the movies I love but know suck? Well, here they are. Feel free to add your own, or make fun of me for liking these shit stains on celluloid.
Last week I took a pounding for hating on some classic movies. Except the Hangover … seems most of the super intelligent OL crowd didn’t fall for that movie. This week I want to move on to happier topics, like death. What makes a good death scene? Dying for ones beliefs and convictions? Sure, that’ll do. Giving some epic prose before sloughing off this mortal coil? Sure, that’s a good one too. I think that a great death scene has meaning. This means that we have to care about the characters, no easy feat. So here they are, my top 5 Death Scenes.
Just be warned, there are spoilers ahead for the following movies: Star Wars, LA Confidential, Saving Private Ryan, Blade Runner, and Highlander: End Game.
