I often wonder how many movies would have been great had they not force-fed a square romance plot into the circular movie hole.
I can only name a few that have not been ruined by some hollywood exec morons trying to get an extra 10% market share by pandering to women in a movie that had no right having woman stuff in it:
The Good, The Bad and the Ugly
Duck You Sucker
Bridge Over the River Kwai
The Great Raid
The Dirty Dozen
There are more, but they aren't coming to mind right now.
Now, most women get pissed when I complain about movies being destroyed by forcing a romance plot on a movie that is NOT a romance movie. But they quickly acquiesce when I ask if "Steel Magnolias" or "Eat Pray Love" would have been improved with Bruce Willis coming in and killing a ton of terrorists on the side.
All that aside, I just watched a movie that has completely escaped my movie radar and its name is "The Train."
Don't know why I haven't heard of it before. I have no older brother or cousins to guide me, and the older men in my life never took me under their wings, but I'm mightily peeved I've gone 36 years in life without knowing about this movie.
In any case, the ole Captain STRONGLY recommends "The Train." Just look at the poster and tell me you don't want to watch it.
And some other bad ass nazi guys.
All trying to steal a train.
"Steal a train" is actually the worst I can do to explain this movie because there's a TON of strategy and subversion that goes into it. So I won't ruin it for you, because you will all obey me and do as i say and watch this movie for yourself. But seriously, just go get this on Netflix or Blockbuster or whatever you do.
If you die before watching this movie, god says you're going to hell.
