Directed by Harold Ramis, it was good to see John Cusack in something other than a stinker.

    I had never heard of this movie before and caught it on Showtime. Pleasantly surprised.

    7/10
    Have you seen ‘Grosse Point Blank’? Another non-stinker starring Cusack.

    'cause it's after Seven Days in May Day and we've traded in poles for reindeer. Its post scary time.

    And because of your use of profanity you're not allowed any more Snickers.

    You don't have to go cry in your beer bilby.
    Profanity? I am an atheist, and don't accept the existence of such a category. I am also Australian. I merely used standard Aussie punctuation.

    This seems appropriate:

    RE: Christmas. Fuck me sideways with a rusty railspike I'm glad I don't work in retail anymore. Christmas point of sale had to be up immediately after Halloween and Hot Cross fucking Buns by the second of fucking January.

    Grosse Point Blank is one of my all time favorite movies.

    As action movies go, this is among the top movies Willis starred in. The plot which I imagine is well known to most film aficionados is that a New York cop takes on terrorists who have taken over his wife's office tower building.

    Highly rated by most film critics at the time and it still is. 9/10
    More notably, it debuts a certain Alan Rickman who plays a very good villain.
    Agreed. Rickman was/is brilliant.

    If you haven't seen this gem, do yourself a favour and watch asap! 9/10 in my humble opinion. I still have wet dreams after all these years about the beautiful and delicious Liv Tyler.
