We’re on a British gangster high over here, so this week we take a look at Matthew Vaughn’s film…
1. Chief Miles O’Brien
We here at The Move are big Star Trek fans, so it’s always nice to see one of the actors go on to do something that’s not a Lifetime movie of the week.
2. Morty beating the hell out of Freddy.
Everybody likes a good, old fashioned beat down. This one was especially satisfying after we learned that the dirty bum who walks around with bits of his breakfast on his shirt and asks people for money is the guy who got Morty stuck in prison for ten years.
3. Michael Gambon’s line to Daniel Craig.
“You’re born, you take s**t. You get out in the world, you take more s**t. You climb a little higher, you take less s**t. ‘Till one day you’re up in the rarefied atmosphere and you’ve forgotten what s**t even looks like. Welcome to the layer cake, son.”
Of course, Michael Gambon could have sung Enya songs and it still would have sounded cool.
What is it that makes hot women want to hang out with the bad guys, leaving everyone else out in the cold? We’re not sure, but we’re looking into it.
5. The dignified, glamorous gangster lifestyle.
Seriously, that cake looks awesome. If we could all wear nice clothes and eat at expensive country clubs and never get caught for our more clandestine activities, we’d all sell drugs. Probably in England.
Normally that would be the end, but since our readers have had to go without for two whole weeks…
6. Red shirts.
We all want to roll with the big dogs, but we can’t all be as cool as Daniel Craig. These guys are too goofy for their own good and scream out, “I’m going to die!” from their very first scene.
We hope you enjoyed this week’s 5 Things, and remember, cocaine is bad. Until next week.
