Shooter IM addendum

me: by the way, if you need a good-bad movie to netflix, check out "Shooter"
mark wahlberg. sniper rifles. you can't lose

frank: i've kind of wanted to see that.

me: i rented it last week. totally worth it
the movie's a little too long but it's loaded with awesome
and, unbelievably, the gunplay is relatively realistic for an action movie

frank: the sniper holds a strange romantic allure in American pop culture.

me: i think it's a lone gunman thing
even though snipers work in teams

frank: ... a certified angel of death... the job of precise killing for god and country... on the fine line of war combat and asasination.

me: also it's like shooting a giant bolt-action penis
