Now before all you Military can do no wrong, super Americans jump down my throat (You know who you are. You have an everyday wearin' camo hat which is totally different from your goin' out on the town camo hat.) just relax a second. Yes, the true story itself is heroic and tragic and harrowing. The men they portray and those like it are real heroes and I truly appreciate everything they do. All I do is sit behind a laptop and make dick jokes. There is no way a pussy like me could even make it through basic training. So don't get all butt hurt because you have horrible taste in movies.
Anyway, that's not even what this article is about. I just went on what we city folk call a tangent. Now my main point. Coming from the prospective of a fan and admirer of cinema, I have one huge problem with Lone Survivor. THEY PUT THE FUCKING ENDING IN THE FUCKING TITLE. Lone Survivor?!?! I wonder how many people are going to live. There's like five guys on that team I can count in the previews. I can take a pretty accurate guess how many make it out. Maybe just Mark Wahlberg? I'm guessing since he's on the cover of the poster, he might have a great shot at it. Call me crazy but Ben Foster sure as hell isn't going to make it out! Sorry Ben, I hope you weren't counting on being in Lone Survivor 2. So this got me thinking, what if other movies took the Lone Survivor approach; giving away the ending or exposing major plot points in the title. Let's see what it looks like....(REALLY OLD SPOILERS AFTER THE BREAK)
