But where else can I see a dwarf bring to life a 6'5" 250 lb. former MP?

They can delay that turd until the cows come home. I ain't watching anything with Thetan Boy in it

Nice. Way to get the name of your movie in during a tragedy. Who cares? They could have just released on schedule anyways, no one would have cared. You think the parents or anyone actually affected by this is going the movies anytime soon? That they might accidentally stumble to showing and be upset? But now everyone knows Jack Reacher was delayed and ooooo I wonder what controversial scene(s) were in in that made them delay it. I'd better go find out!

Hopefully someday they'll bring Jack Reacher round again.

Well I can see two FARKers have already seen it. Shame, I thought it looked pretty good.

I was thinking the same thing - unless there's a scene where children are in jeopardy, I don't see what the issue is. Is it just because there's violence in it?

They should have delayed 'The Hobbit'. People are depressed enough right now and are going to be on the verge of suicide after seeing this piece of shiat.

Seriously, it sucked.

You should RTFA more carefully. They didn't delay the release, only tonight's premiere screening since the story revolves around tracking down a psychopathic gunman.

Casting himself as a badass? Typical short man disease-like behavior. The actors who got paid to let that half pint whoop on them probably had some laughs after shooting wrapped.

In reality-land, Jack Reacher has a 78% on Rotten Tomatoes.

The movie opens with a sniper picking off random people in a crowd. Totally understandable for a multinational corporation to err on the side of caution and not premiere the movie the day after a mass shooting.

Now please continue your ignorant ranting.

//going to see it today for 9 minutes of prologue and 150 minutes of shiat log.

Yea, I haven't seen any Tom Cruise movie for years since he decided to become the public spokesman for crazy. I didn't even see the last Mission Impossible, and that got really good reviews.

But I might see Jack Reacher even though Cruise is playing the Mini Me version of him. Cruise does evil really well, and this character reminds me a lot of his character from Collateral.

Very constructive post. Based on your knee-jerk reactions to a trailer or some other cursory exposure to the film, I am so much more likely to not see it now rather than the 78% of critics who liked it.

Total win for anonymous internet guy with nothing profound to offer!
 
2012-12-15 09:52:42 AM  
I will admit it - I want to see Jack Reacher. It looks like the kind of thing I would enjoy and I dig Tom's acting, always have. he may be a class A nut bag but he makes pretty watchable movies.

BalugaJoe: book was dumb.


Wait...which book? Admittedly, I didn't start getting into the series until about four years ago, but I've gone back and read the whole series. It's a good thriller/mystery series on par with the works of Sandford and Lehane.

Um no, I could give a f*ck about that dipshiat as a human being, and even his acting is pretty hit or miss, but he has been in a few good films here or there, and I am more likely to trust critics than the circle jerk of imbeciles who hate a movie simply because he stars in it.

Fair enough. I was joking of course, but it was surprising to see a defender here. There is much hate for the little fella, that is certain. Me? I just don't care for over the top hero crap. I know it sells, but that's just me.

Yeah, I'd say there is about a 10% chance I will see it in the theater, unless I read that there is some incredible plot twist or device or narrative that I can't miss. I haven't read that yet, just that it was a solid film.

Yeah. I don't give a fark about Tom Cruise either, but he's an actor. He can act like a psycho or a hero or whatever he's supposed to be, and they can make him look tall. They've been doing it since silent movies. Many leading men have been short little farks.

What if you thought that about The Shawshank Redemption because you don't like Stephen King adaptations? What a dipshiat you'd be.
 
2012-12-15 12:20:00 PM  
Out of all the Reacher books written by Lee Child, One Shot (that this movie is based on) is not one of his better efforts. That and, as someone else mentioned, Tom Cruise is not 6-5, 250. I'll pass.

Tom Hardy isn't 7 feet tall and 400 pounds of pure muscle, that's why I didn't see the latest Batman flick.

I only thought that about Shawshank after I'd seen it. What a ridiculously overrated movie.

I feel sorry for people that can't pull apart the fact that even if his personal life is farked up, he makes some entertaining movies. Even my hipster asshole little brother enjoyed MI:3 and loved MI:4 (as did I), and we were in tears the first time we watched Tropic Thunder. I don't understand how people can't differentiate between a movie and RL.

/read the book, I'll see the movie.

The movie is actually getting some surprisingly good reviews. I don't blame them for delaying the release of a violent film with lots of shooting after a real life massacre like this.

I don't need your sympathy (I'm not being an Internet Tough Guy) and I can very well separate movies from real life. That doesn't mean that just because some person acts like an asshole and my personal feeling are I don't like him, that I should ignore those feelings whenever he's in a movie even if it's good. There's other actors in Hollywood besides Tom Cruise who I'd rather watch in a movie anyways, like Sam Rockwell and Ben Foster or Ryan Gosling. Cruise can say or do whatever he wants in public but that doesn't mean he's free from the repercussions of his actions. Yea, he may make some entertaining movies but I couldn't care less. Man, there are better foreign movies that came out this year than anything Cruise has been in, so I feel like I'm missing nothing.
