    Why you pursue something is as important as what you pursue.

    For those curious, yes, despite having watched the movie not long ago to properly prepare for this paper, I watched it again so this can count as a proper research. Turns out, when you're dealing with an all-time favorite movie, you can seemingly watch it every day and not get tired of it. This in a way, at least at the moment, feels like a culmination of the two…

    Axel, you on a coffee break? Go get that son of a bitch.

    On paper, John Landis seems like a great fit for this series. He had proven success with Eddie Murphy before, and as a whole, seen in films such as The Blues Brothers and Into the Night, he's fully capable of delivering bombastic action with fun humor. The opening of this movie showcases that if there's one thing Landis was brought into this industry to do, it was…

    Don't think, Axel! It makes my dick itch.

    3.2 on here for this is criminal. Saying it as someone who liked the original a lot, I think this is done better in about every way. I viewed Beverly Hills Cop as a hangout film mixed with cop procedural, and this is exactly that with two definitive aspects that make it even stronger.

I don't know man, considering that sometimes this film subgenre forgets that it has its roots within the likes of crime thrillers, science fiction, fantasy and so on, it's wonderful to see a movie that somehow has its cake and eats it too with being "dark" of course while still pulpy and just over…

    "Look, bitch, you knew I was a snake."

    In one word, grating. Before I say anything beyond that, I'm going to make something clear: I wholly get what Oliver Stone and company were doing here. You can't miss what this movie is supposed to be about. It's decent messaging. Of course we glorify killers in the media. Of course humans are hypocritical with violence. The way the film is made, I also understand that this movie is likely meant to…
