Jack Reacher Returns

I'm no Mr. Thomas Cruise fan. Yes, he was good in Taps, Risky Business, Top Gun, Rain Man, Cocktail, Days of Thunder, A Few Good Men, Mission: Impossible, Jerry Maguire, The Last Samurai, MI2, MI 3, Tropic Thunder and of course, Born on the 4th of July.

But apart from that he hasn't done anything good.

Oh, and the original Jack Reacher movie.

So here he is again, in another Jack Reacher movie. I have read all of Lee Child's Reacher books and truth be told, I just want to say 'move on, this has nothing to do with you' but he would never listen.

However, Mr Cruise has managed to bring a new dimension to the character which I can really respect. Well done sir!

Here is the first movie trailer

Drive I Swear

As I mentioned in a previous post, the first real rains of the season began yesterday. So here are a few rules for your delectation;

+ If you slow down to 20 km/h because of the rain I will gesticulate at you. Now get out of my way.

+ If you slow down to 20 km/h because of the rain and continue to hold the phone in your hand and talk into it I will gesticulate at you and insult your parentage. Now get out of my way.

+ Look at the road in front of you. If it looks like puddles then slow down. The odds are that your car weighs more than a bag of hot air and so in a Vehicle v. Puddle fight, don't worry, you WILL win. Now get out of my way.

+ If you do not think that lit headlights are a required addition to driving in stormy conditions I will flash my lights at you. I will also gesticulate and debate your parentage. Its not about you seeing the road, its about other drivers, and pedestrians, seeing you.

+ Driving with one armed draped over the passenger seat is never a good idea. If you do so whilst it rains heavily, and you're talking on the phone, and you have a cigarette in the same hand as your phone and you're undertaking someone I will do nothing.
I will do nothing because I'll be busy phoning the Police because you're a Caulking Font (rearranged for the faint of heart).
You may be suicidal but I like my life right now so I'll do my utmost to get you off the roads.

+ Everyone else? Yeah, you're good.

Thus endeth the rant.
