  1. I’m guessing you have to review it? seriously that poster is HEINOUS.
    after such review (if you’re subjected) read up on NPR’s similar sentiments:

    be brave, soldier.

  2. Teehee. They are really hyping the crap out of this movie for some reason, even to the point of ads which explain the (despair-inducing) premise.

    So why, I must ask. Why? More ads reveal in advance just how shitty it’s going to be. I just don’t see the strategy here.

    Also, I understand exaggeration for comic effect, but with regards to No. 2 above, c’mon. Seriously, dude. The movie’s going to be bad, but that’s a task not even Mike Rowe would stick his snout into.

    And: “Guns are gay” Well, it’s hard (heh) to deny the inherent homoerotic attraction to long, smooth, glinting fresh-blued barrel issuing its steaming payload. Pry yer cold, dead hands offa what now?
