When They Tell You Not To Panic... That's When You Run!

by Rainier on Nov. 16, 2009 @ 12:00 a.m. PST | Filed under MOTD

We had high hopes on Sunday to get a few things crossed off our to-do list, but alas, we failed. It's not such a bad thing because they weren't all that important to begin with.

We did, however, see Boondock Saints II, and it was great. A little awkward with the inclusion of a new "gang" member, which threw off the trio's chemistry a little bit, but overall, the flick was great. If you were a fan of the original, you'll love the sequel, and if you never heard of the movie before, you'll enjoy it either way. While one of the quotes says, "Let's do some gratuitous violence," it's violence without being too over the top. A few dozen people die throughout the movie, but there's not a lot of gibs, guts or massive loads of blood.
