With all the shots taken at Avatar & Matt Damon movies in previous episodes, I assumed Prius Owners was a codeword for liberals. I don’t mind action movies with muscular liberalism because John Carpenter is one of my favorite directors & most of his stuff does feature it. Another example of it is in Escape from L.A. which features Cliff Robertson’s right-wing, religious nut case of a President. Yet, it has Kurt Russell/Snake Plissken to provide the Mus. Lib. to counter act it.Dave Johnson wrote:The OWMC has dispatched an assassin to your house as we speak
The OWMC assassin did pay me a visit but I showed him my 24 immunity card & he let me off with a warning. He said he was going back to his home country of McDonaldLand. He swore it was a legit place.
If I can be a contrarian, contrarian A-Hole just one more time. The Expendables does deserve to be on the list but Stallone’s previous effort Rambo was a better movie & would be hated a lot more by Prius owners. The main reasons:
No Fictional Country BS: It takes place in Burma, a real freakin place, not in The Islamic Republic of Not Iran or The Banana Republic of Nowhere.
No nuance or any signs of the OWMC: The Burma leadership & military are the main bad guys & they’re just pure evil. Burning down entire villages, throwing babies into a fire, making their prisoners run through a landmine filled field, etc. There are no shades of grey & not an ex-CIA agent running the show.
No useless girlfriend scenes: I didn’t see Rambo beating up Julie Benz’s boyfriend on a basketball court.
Better Kills: The Expendables had a higher body count, but nothing could top the driver in the jeep getting shot point blank into bloody chunks by a 50-caliber turret gun, Rambo putting several arrows into another Burma soldier & watching him get vaporized by the same land mine he planted earlier, or the way he gutted the leader with his machette. A Prius owner would be scarred for life after watching that.
In the battle of who has more testosterone: Rambo > The Expendables.

Hey Boba, what about this one? There's definitely no Old White Man Cabal in this one.

This is true. In a list like this, there was bound to be an egregious omission or two. I promise to stream The Octagon on Netflix as pennance.
