Guilty Pleasures

I have a confession.

I'll pretty much watch any film that Jason Statham makes.  He was great in Snatch, as the low-key, wise-ass thief/scam artist/boxing promoter.  But once he started showing off his martial arts skills in action films I was hooked.  Those Transporter movies?  Loved them!  The Crank series?  Good God, they were awful...but I loved them!  And now he has remade one of my all-time favorite films from the 1970's.  The old Chuck Bronson assassin film, The Mechanic.  And it also stars Ben Foster, and he always seem to do a competent to brilliant job.

So yeah...I'll be seeing this one.  Oh yeah.

see, i like him also, but once he started going all karate/action-star-y, he kinda lost me a bit.

I swear, when I read these posts about movies and actors and tv shows I've never heard of, I really feel like I live under a rock.

I think you know where I stand on this matter...hopefully, right between Earl and Statham!
