I saw most of the last Bourne movie the other day and it got me thinking ... about starting some trouble here.

Keanu Reeves is at least a well trained fighter and actruly knows how to operate a weapon very well. John Wick all the way, you never kill a man's Dog!

While, I'm a fan of the Bourne movies, Wick seems to be a little more hard core. Not nearly as many car chases.

Apples & oranges. Each has his own special skill set.

Wick---trained assassin/hit man. Bourne---trained spec/black. ops/intel gathering. Each is great in their own right.

As far as movies I like them both. Damon is anti 2A while Reeves is a real pro with guns and trains with them.

Both are an entertaining break from reality, BUT as narcissist said, you never kill a mans dog.
Matt Damon seems ok but, he's no Keanu Reeves.

Borne is very good at disarming someone to get a gun. Sometimes he will then leave it behind. My thought is, this is antigun.

Both were hit men, except Borne morphed into finding out who he is and then revenge.

Wick is the better shooter. He is all revenge, afterall they killed his dog.

Bourne never had a dog, Wick did. I like dogs!

John Wick, easy. I don't think Bourne ever killed someone using a pencil.

I have watched both and realize that these are just actors and I was entertained by both. Keeping this in mind.

Dear Hollywood celebrities, You exist for my entertainment. Some of you are great eye candy. Some of you can deliver a line with such conviction that you bring tears to my eyes. Some of you can scare the crap out of me. Others make me laugh. But you all have one thing in common, you only have a place in my world to entertain me. That’s it. You make your living pretending to be someone else. Playing dress up like a 6 year old. You live in a make believe world in front of a camera. And often when you are away from one too. Your entire existence depends on my patronage. I’ll crank the organ grinder; you dance. I don’t really care where you stand on issues. Honestly, your stance matters far less to me than that of my neighbor. You see, you aren’t real. I turn off my TV or shut down my computer and you cease to exist in my world. Once I am done with you, I can put you back in your little box until I want you to entertain me again. I don’t care that you don't like Mr.Trump. But I bet you looked cute saying it. Get back into your bubble. I’ll let you know when I’m in the mood for something blue and shiny. And I'm also supposed to care that how you feel about Mr. Trump as President? Ha. Please don't forget to close the door behind you. We'd like to reserve your seat for someone who loves this country and really wants to be here. Make me laugh, or cry. Scare me. But realize that the only words of yours that matter are scripted. I might agree with some of you from time to time, but it doesn’t matter. In my world, you exist solely for my entertainment.

Wick "once killed 3 men in a bar, with a pencil... who does that?!?!?!"

Bourne did get one with a pen! :biggrinjester:

I'd route for Wick, if that movie were made. :lol:
