Stealth: Steaming pile of shit

The nice thing about Netflix is that you can get movies you wouldn't pay to rent locally, let alone buy. So I figured, what the hell, I'll get Stealth even though it got terrible reviews. I mean, Jamie Foxx is the shit, and Jessica Biel is crazy attractive.

The first scene sets the precedent for being bad. The three pilots are flying around at the speed of sound low over ground. It's followed by a silly briefing with a captain, then a bar scene. And of course the dudes go with sluts, because Biel isn't hot enough? Please. And her character name is Kara, pronounced "car-uh." Who does that?

Then you have the robot movie shit you've seen before. The advocate, the skeptic, the goofy computer genius. Machine becomes self-aware. You lose a member of the team. I mean, for fuck's sake, is there anything original about this?

I thought the same way about Shooter. I saw it last weekend. Mark Wahlberg was great to look at, but the storyline was so played out. Man gets wronged, man fights back and conquers all. All while scoring a love interest while his life is in imminent danger.

How very tired.

Car-uh? Ridiculous!

I saw Shooter this weekend with my son. Nothing spectacular, but it made my other movie of the weekend, Blades of Glory, look like The Departed.

BoG - now that's shit. Stealth? - even on cable I have managed to avoid it. Now Jeff confirms my choice.
