They take political relevance and just make a story around it.

That's not social commentary.

I remember when John Rambo came out a few years ago, people were so anxiously trying to add political subtext to it. "It's a great commentary on blah blah blah."

It's an ACTION MOVIE, trying to add subtext to Rambo is trying to add subtext to Commando.

I like that action buffs are trying to take a movie they love and add importance to it, but it's a dixie cup. Convenient disposable and that's about it.

I'm not buying it.


You don't have to buy it. First Blood, commentary or not (I don't agree that there is) is not a shallow action movie. As for his speech at the end? It was really good.


To repeat: Yeah and White Castle is gourmet cooking. If you say so.

Laughing "I can't argue anymore, so you're just dumb."

Oh DSIC you're a treasure.

You're not a Dread member until you've been branded with a DSIC insult.

Yeah, that's it. I can't argue. Don't know how. Or MAYBE, there is no point when you've said something so incredibly dumb and dismissive of any kind of reason. How about you give something worth arguing?

Really? Because even though Floydian says some truly ridiculous things, he actually TRIES to make his point in his responses.

Oh come on you're reaching now. After all the debates you've seen me in? Dude, you're hilarious. Hurting my feelings by saying I argue poorly? Are you going to make fun of my spelling or something? Hey, call me a dumb fanboy, or maybe use past movies I like to use against me like Floydian does.

No seriously, go do it, I'll be enjoying this. I've been waiting for your tongue lashing.

Okay, crunchy peanut butter over smooth peanut butter.

I prefer crunchy because it gives me something to chew on, but smooth is chunky too, so that's a quandary.

I do think you're capable of a good argument, which is why I said what I said. You didn't even bother and came up with an incredibly dumb retort.

I didn't think it was dumb, I thought it was funny. And I laughed and laughed and laughed. My point was, if you're anxious to know, is that people often look for something that's not there to lend credence to their arguments even over something poor. I've argued with people who defend bad fast food like it's been made by Julia Childs.

You're special, so make the connection.

But again I figure you for a pizza guy, right? What's your favorite topping?

People think Ben Stiller is funny. He's not. I don't look for things that aren't there in First Blood. It's actually there. Like I said, I don't think it's as much a commentary as what it's trying to say is pretty obvious, but I do think it has more substance than any other Rambo film. One of the reasons why it's held up over all this time.

Hey Ben Stiller was hilarious in the Ben Stiller Show! Remember his Springsteen impression? Watch your mouth, son.

And I couldn't disagree more. A cigar is just a cigar. Vietnam was in vogue to set movies in at that time and Sly did it with his film. That doesn't mean it has a social relevance automatically. No sell for this man. No sell.
