MERRY CHRISTMAS and “Jack Reacher” was gooooooooood
December 24, 2012
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas and that you eat yourself into a temporary coma and possible you drink so much warming booze that your cheeks are rosy both on your face and on your ass and you finally just grab some sexy piece and you get in there and you really… this kind of got out of hand, but I hope you do have a great holiday filled with presents, food, and spirits and maybe the New York Knicks keep winning. That wouldn’t be bad.
Outside of that…
The happy couple above did go and see “Jack Reacher” and we both really liked it a lot.
So, I’ve never read “One Shot” or any of the “Jack Reacher” books by Lee Child. But I would take a guess that Lee Child’s Jack Reacher character is a big rip off of Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty” Harry Callahan. And with that director Christopher McQuarrie made movie “Jack Reacher” a rip off of Clint Eastwood’s “Dirty Harry”. So, whether or not Tom Cruise is 6’5″ or blah blah blah (shut the fuck up, you sizists!), they’re all ripping off the same source material, so it works out.
Tom Cruise for the most part only makes good movies and this is another one.
As Cruise is the star of the show with his surliness, his great detective skills, and his military killing skills. But…
It’s McQuarrie’s direction, tone, and pace of the film that really makes this movie. The movie literally does feel like “Dirty Harry” with a little Steve McQueen’s “Bullitt” thrown in. The movie even begins almost exactly how “Dirty Harry” does. I would say that the gritty and graphic violence at the heart of this movie, which gives the reason for Jack Reacher’s investigation, is even more harrowing and disturbing in light of the public shootings of this year.
The movie is an investigation by Cruise, which is highlighted by a few raw action sequences. While the movie does not have anywhere near the profane dialogue of “The Way of the Gun”, it does carry all the other hallmarks. The people in this movie look like they know what they’re doing. They’re not just using guns, they look like they’ve been trained to use them, and know how to use them in these situations. And the person who makes the right adjustments is the one who wins these altercations.
But if I’m being honest the real star of this movie that definitely has peaked the interest of all that see it and will leave an everlasting stain on their brain forever…
Rosamund Pike’s heaving cleavage.
GOD BLESS US EVERYONE!
In the first 30 minutes, nothing seems to be amiss in the movie or anything truly noteworthy about Ms. Pike’s character who is very pretty as Pike is, but not much more than that.
But at the start of the second act, Rosamund adopts a lot of low cut sweaters like the one above or just tight sweaters and that is when the brilliance of boobs takes over.
As if her gorgeous excessive cleavage heaving was a barometer for how intense the investigation has become.
This picture is really only the tip of the iceberg in the movie.
“Jack Reacher” was gooooood.
Christmas is gooooood even to a Bar Mitzvahed boy like me.
I hope you all have a great Christmas.
