Another frosty day, another frosty job at Air Canada. Just sitting next to a company computer to pump out my very first blog. Well, the first one that isn't under the guise of an alias who is too busy telling stories to write something relevant to my real life. So, hello! My name is JS Longstreet, as you now know, and I am here to share my thoughts. I'd like to start with movies, since this is one of my favourite pass-times. Tonight we have Meet the Spartans and Rambo coming out. Two movies I have divided opinions on. Meet the Spartans is a symbol to me. I've been a fan of parody, spoof, and farce for most of my life. However, the Scary Movie series had me losing faith in the genre. So, I'm looking forward to seeing if Meet the Spartans can revive my interest... or if it will only further deter me from seeing another parody. Rambo on the other hand, looks terrible. I cannot think of a worse idea... and here's why:
If you have ever had the displeasure to see this absolutely horrid cartoon, you will join my "argh" at the mention of Rambo's name. This movie, from the ads released, seems to be about Sylvester Stallone pulling out some memorable quotes. "When you're pushed, killing is as easy as breathin'." Come on. Rocky Balboa was alright, it showed the closure to the character... Not what Rambo seems to be about. Time will tell, as I'll likely rent Rambo some years later.
