The Expedables 2
Whatever you had planned this weekend - drop it! Just get your asses to the nearest cinema & see:
Looking at my 15 year old son in the seat beside me at the cinema staring at all MY childhood heroes I got filled with this amazing sense of privilege. I got to grow up watching these guys kicking peoples asses & blowing shit up. ...& there I was seeing them still causing havoc & blowing peoples heads off. Let me tell you, they're like a perfectly aged Henri IV Dudognon cognac & they keep getting better by the year. I couldn't stop smiling!
I've been told the movie got a few crap reviews though... Come ooon, are you serious? We all know what kinda movie it is ☛ an experience! A way to climb off your high horse & leave the 'political correct-peace loving'-self outside & step into a saloon filled with cigar smoke, big guns, loads of gore, a hint of Yippee-kai-yay mother fucker & a healthy dose of sarcasm. What's wrong with them teaching the next generation what they taught me?
-If you're knee deep in shit & it keeps on coming, keep fighting onwards & laugh in the face of adversity. You'll have a few more cuts & bruises than you bargained for, but everything will turn out good in the end.
...& that's what I think a lot of todays youth could benefit from learning. Cause most of their life unravels if their cellphone battery runs flat or they have to do chores. & I just think they need to learn to kick fate's ass every once in a while, take responsibility & create their own destiny...instead of running to mum & dad every time they get a boo-boo.
So my advice:
Go see the movie, bring some friends, have a laugh, & remember...they'll be back. ;)
