Rambo: Last Blood #67

Rambo: Last Blood was a fitting send-off for our beloved Vietnam veteran.  Revenge action and violence has never been more visceral nor satisfying.

SPOILER ALERT!  Watch the movie before proceeding.

Lessons Learned from Rambo: Last Blood

Sky: Send your kids off to school with protection.

  • That Damascus steel letter opener was pretty sweet and a great idea for dorm safety.

Dusty: Never go to Mexico.

  • There are so many safer yet just as beautiful countries to visit.  There’s Canada and we’ve still got Hawaii!

Dusty loves the level-action rifle

Sky: You’re never going to convince somebody to NOT do something if their mind and heart are set on it.

  • We all saw it coming, Gabrielle was not got going to obey Uncle John nor Grandma.

Dusty: Over communicate.

  • This is a lesson for just about every movie we watch.  Communication can solve most problems.  Let’s work together, people!

Sky’s favorite death!!!

Sky: Never ask a question you don’t want the answer to.

  • There was nothing Gabrielle’s father could’ve said to make her happy.  No matter the answer, after asking the question “Why did you leave?”, she’s going to feel worse than before. “Actions speak louder than words.”

Rambo watched Home Alone and took all the wrong, murderous lessons from it

Dusty: Get a backhoe and get to work on your doomsday bunker.

  • What a great stash for your canned foods and for hunting bad guys.

Sky has chosen Zombieland as the next movie we’ll learn from.

If you missed it, last week we learned from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.

Scott Pilgrim vs. the World (2010) #66

We’re huge fans of Scott Pilgrim vs. the World.  Great writing and a fun story with killer action, witty dialogue and cool comic booky, video-gamey visuals.

SPOILER ALERT!  Watch the movie before proceeding.

Lessons Learned from Scott Pilgrim vs. the World

Sky: Persistence is critical.

  • If you have a dream, pursue it.  The Sex Bob-ombs kept gigging and finally landed a contract (ill-fated, but they landed it) and Scott finally got the girl.

Dusty:   Never cheat on anybody you’re dating.

  • Cheaters have no honor nor respect for themselves or the one they’re with.  Doesn’t matter how hard it is, do the right thing.

Vegan powers!!!

JP Sears: If Meat Eaters Acted Like Vegans

Sky: Wallace said, “If you want something bad, you  have to fight for it. 

  • It goes with the first lesson, but it’s an important idea for success in life.

Ramona gets some action with this awesome large-handled Mjolnir!

 

Sky & Dusty: Don’t partake of anything an enemy gives you.

  • Any enemy would only have ulterior motives behind giving you anything.

If you missed it, last week we learned from Angel Has Fallen.

Angel Has Fallen | Spoiler Review and Lessons Learned #65

Angel Has Fallen was a bummer of a movie!  Too predictable and nowhere nearly as enjoyable as its predecessors.  What a terrible way to conclude a franchise.

SPOILER ALERT!  Watch the movie before proceeding.

Lessons Learned from Angel Has Fallen

Dusty’s 3-parter:

  1. Grab your victim’s guns.
  2. Beware of your surroundings and always know the exits.
  3. Train as if it’s real so you won’t be dead when it is.

Sky:  Simple plans are the most effective. 

  • Their plan was too fantastical. Kill the president, that’s it. Why set somebody up for the fall and kill every secret service agent?

Nick Nolte… Angel’s only saving grace

Dusty: Get a phone and start live streaming everything

  • Use the technology of today to begin proving your innocence.

Sky:  Don’t get plastic surgery.

  • Now you look fake.

We’re not plastic surgery fans.

Dusty: Lions do what lions do

  • When the crap hits the fan, you react naturally and show your true stripes.

Gerard Butler as Mike Banning.

 

Sky: It’s better to know when to quit than to stick around and hurt your loved ones.

  • Maybe not a great lesson, but Dusty’s right.  If you need to change, work to change for the betterment of yourself and your loved ones.

Kung Pow: Enter the Fist | Spoiler Review & Lessons Learned 64

Kung Pow: Enter the Fist is one of the best spoofs of all time!  We absolutely love it! The comedy is spot on and the premise of taking an old kung fu movie and creating something new from it is comedy genius!

SPOILER ALERT!  Watch the movie before proceeding.

Lessons Learned from Kung Pow: Enter the Fist

Dusty: Never fight a baby.  

  • It is a lose-lose situation.

Lovin’ Steve Odekirk!

Sky: Ask and ye shall receive. 

  • Master Tang changed his mind at a second request from the Chosen One imploring him to help.

Master Tang… none more masterful

Dusty: Rodents are disposable.

  • Yep, eating or self-defense, do what you want with dem pests.

Sky: Always pay attention to your surroundings. 

  • We love it when Betty and his henchmen are walking through town and some random stupid villages are still walking towards these degenerates that are beating other people. “Hey guys, what’s going on?”

We love Wimp Lo.

Dusty: Fighting to music is the only way to go.

Those small nets gets us all the time, too!

 

Sky: Stay away from psycho hose beasts like Ling.

  • A lesson we first leaned from Wayne’s World.
