Everyone. Kill everyone. That's what he taught me. No time for doubts, no time for hesitation, no time for feelings, no time for friends, no time for family. The only way you can make sure you won't be betrayed, is to kill everyone around you. "Everyone must die," he said. "Everyone."

So,I skipped out of the office early today and fired up Showitme.
Wham, the first movie I ran into was just starting. STILETTO. The cast is filled with names and faces you'll immediately recognize. Hey, that makes the movie worth investing a bit of time to begin with.
Plot, who cares to begin with. The movie is dark and dreary with Mob affiliation and peeps getting whacked immediately. Watch it alone with a strong drink or six and in the evening.
Some may say the cast is beyond Over-The-Hill and Has-Beens. Tom Berringer as a Greek is a bit of a stretch; Stana Katic(Canadian) is great as the psycho-chick assassin, bent on revenge and killing anyone(males mostly), related to her anger and pain. Whatever.
The plot is about revenge...blah-blah-blah! I'd watch her cut vegetables. She can be/was seen on ABC's Castle. If you like hot brunettes, this is for you, plot be damned!
I watch a movie to be entertained and escape reality for a couple hours.
The cast of retro/comfortable characters let me do just that. Think Terminator, Platoon, etc.
There's not social lecture, just revenge, blood and advice. I'm only 45 minutes into the movie and I've already sent an email to a slimy acquaintance that can get ANY movie on DVD while it's still in the theater. The acquaintance loved Stiletto too! Preliminary audiences didn't, obviously. And now, back to the movie and another scotch, with Stana of course.
