Went to watch The Expendables 2.
The wife liked it.
Me, not so much.
Strange…aren’t women supposed to hate bloody mindless violence filled action movies?
At the end of the movie I was of the pinion that the movie plot was underwhelming, characters wafer thin, human life was devalued in the name of macho-ness (macho-ism?), and that the movie in its entirety felt unsatisfying.
My wife did’nt get most of the pop culture references, the artificially injected self deprecating humour, or that odd Chuck Norris joke that was thrown in the midst.
On asking why she liked the movie, my wife said “The Good guys easily kill the bad guys, rarely getting hurt themselves…”
“…but I didn’t like it that they killed the only cute guy of the lot so early on”
P.S. The news anchor of a local channel was always pronouncing the movie as in the title of the post.
