So Wed. are pretty bad tv-wise. Come to think of it, the whole week is pretty bad for tv that I like. I mean, I watch Lost, but I’m not hooked on it. Though I think it has more to do with my dislike of Party of Five than anything else. But back to my point; wed tv.
Can you guess the horrors I stooped to?
Richard Gere. Richard fucking Gere!!! And with a horrible, dreadful, disgraceful oirish accent. And playing an IRA terrorist! Yes readers, I stooped to The Jackal. And not only that, but I’d seen it before, and hated it then too!.
I know, I could have spent those two hours flicking from station to station, but I didn’t. I watched all of it. Let’s all quote Marlon Brando
The horror! The horror!
So, a question for all you non-Irishers out there – do you really think that that is what the (any) Irish accent sounds like?
It was almost as bad as Tom “Brain Lesion” Cruise’s in that piece of shite. And not only was the accent terrible, the whole film stank. What was the deal with the 20 minutes of slo-mo everytime Bruce Willis and Gere spotted each other? Why on earth are we expected to think that letting an IRA terrorist (a murderer lets not forget) go is a good thing, simply because he helped catch/kill (to ruin the surprise) a baddie that he hated in the first place?
 – Mr. Cruise is obviously suffering from something at the moment (all through his life). Whether this is simply a PR campaign gone bad, scientology’s new marketing campaign, a mid-life crisis, or something totally different, I can’t say. But Nine Moons suggested a brain lesion, and it is as good an explanation as any.
