    Jack Reacher (2012)
    A homicide investigator digs deeper into a case involving a trained military sniper who shot five random victims. The first suspect is a discharged military veteran, a trained sniper, ultimately found to not have done it. Later it's discovered that it wasn't a random shooting, but rather a targeted hit by a hired professional killer to acquire a construction firm, which was disguised as a random shooting to outwit the cops.

    Streets of San Francisco, episode "Crossfire" (1974)

    Split Second (1992)
    Staring Rutger Hauer
    The year is 2008 and something is terrorizing the streets of London, leaving numerous heartless corpses behind. Fortunately detective Harley Stone (Rutger Hauer) is on the case and discovers that the murderous monster behind the killings is just that.

    5/10


    The movie itself is cheaply and quickly thrown together, produced by a crew that normally shoots a commercial an afternoon, but there is a currently timely anecdote is about when it was released.
    The 1992 Los Angeles riots started April 29 1992, and the movie's release date was May 1 1992.
    The director flew in, intending to attend the gala, and from the plane could smell the smoke in the plane and see Los Angeles burning, hundreds of fires all over LA. Landed and the customs guys said "Don't leave the airport."
    The director just HAD TO GO TO THE GALA. No taxis. No buses. One enormous stretch white limo waiting for a fare. One guy standing in the hall. The limo driver said "Don't worry I know a back route." and off they went. Soldiers and National Guard on the street. The director sitting in the back thinking if you added a pair of chandeliers to the front it could be the limo from Escape From New York, and then as they drove between the burning buildings that changed to if rioters needed something to burn an immaculately clean white stretch limo would be just the thing. A white limo basically saying "Over here! Riot this way!"
    They got to the theatre and sat on the roof watching LA burn, drinking endless Mai Tai, saying "Why are you rioting during MY MOVIE" -- it's all about me.
    There was a 6pm curfew. So no public could go to the cinema. Anyone who could was glued to their television. Certainly didn't want to go to watch Split Second. But they asked the national guard what movie they'd like to see from Universal to be thanked for saving the city and they chose Split Second. They arrived on troop carriers. They weren't allowed to let go of their guns and a couple hundred national guard came in and sat down to watch the movie. They're all sitting watching the movie with the rifles leaning on their shoulders.
    As the movie progresses, it becomes apparent that the monster is huge and almost bulletproof. There's a scene where they're rearming moving through an armory saying "Grenade launcher. High capacity 9mm full automatic. SA80. To !*@($* small! We need bigger guns!" which that audience just thought was hilarious.

    Burt Gummer is dead. He gave his life to save Napoleon Dynamite.
    The actor (Michael Gross) is fine.

    2.5/5
    Tremors: Shrieker Island (2020)

    If you made it through all the previous movies and the TV series, you'll be able to make it through this.
    If this is your first experience at Tremors, it's far to slow, not enough graboids or richly told characters, and not a particularly good movie.
    Bert surprisingly lightly armed throughout, until the end credit's montage to Bert's well armed life.

    Been bingeing on Good Girls for some light entertainment after work;
    the premise of suburban housewives getting mixed up in organized crime has been done before (Weeds)
    but it's all about character development after a while
    Plus I will watch anything with Christina Hendricks - I find her fascinating

    I liked this movie. It was an era when men were real men. While they embellished things the guys actually did exist and achieved amazing things

    If you want to get a little education into the internet and how it modifies your thinking watch The Social Dilemma. Very interesting.
    I give it a 9.5 out of 10.
    Nothing will F--k you up as much as the realization that there's no real reason the alphabet needs to be in order !!

    There is no such thing as left over bacon !!

    yeah pay attention when the designers of social media say they refuse to use it. I agree with a 9 or 9.5 it was well done.

    the slow moving was the reason for 8 on my part too or it would've been a 10.
