    THANK YOU!

    Brilliant review, and it looks like a great movie!

    And yes, totally agree about the motive of spree shooters- its nearly always about fame or attention or some other base motive like that. It shouldn’t be hard to understand.

    Excellent work.

    Another excellent review and commentary. Good work to all involved. Edit: And I probably laughed a little too hard at ‘Bill Cosby style!’

  • MichaelANovelli

    Jack, I gotta say you don’t handle that weapon very well. Everything else about this review is perfect! 🙂

      Yet Uncle Barney’s got no problem brandishing that…paintball rifle?

      • MichaelANovelli

        Well, not having any skin, he’s not going to flinch when firing, thus letting him get a better aiming position against the rear assembly. 🙂

    Man, I don’t think I’ll ever be able to listen to “I Don’t Like Mondays” again. It’s almost like the way Manson is associated with “Helter Skelter”.

    Great review, Count. I now regret not watching this movie the last time it was on TCM.

  • While I think Jackula oversimplifies spree-shooters and their motives* (please note how I said oversimplified, not “he’s wrong” before replying. Thank you), I agree with him 180% on his stance on refusing to use their names. In fact, I’d have gone a step further and not used their pictures either. Except for one aside on the end of this post, I’m going to choose to focus on the point I agree on. Not for the same reason mind you, my reasons stem more from reducing the risk of copycats, but still. Whether the shooter themselves realize it or not, the desire to be remembered does play a role. We can argue about how much of a role, and I would certainly say that it should be taken on a case by case basis, but Jackula is correct that it is present. Taking it away won’t stop these kinds of things altogether, but if the lack of notoriety can make just one of these people think twice, it’s worth it for those people who would’ve been their victims.

    * Regarding the Isla Vista shooter por ejemplo, it’s worth pointing out the male victims were mostly Asian-American, and the asshole in question had also gone on rants about Asian men (particularly those who date white women) which seemed to stem from his own resentment at being mixed race which he blamed for his situation. Because mixed race people are just hideous creatures right? *cough*Vin Diesel and Beyonce*cough*
