John Rambo is Back

Admit it. You're considering seeing the latest installment of the Rambo movies. Oh, you might do it "ironically," or out of a sense of nostalgia. But you're actually looking forward to it, even if you use it as an excuse for going to the movies drunk. I was pleasantly surprised to see that the review in The New York Times was actually quite fair. One quotation from AO Scott's assessment probably sums it up best: "[T]he movie does have its own kind of blockheaded poetry."

Amen to that, brother.
