One of These Things is Not Like the Other

Well, we were at Wal-Mart again the other day. I saw a new multi-pack display that made me laugh.

Wayne Bullock


First they had a nice five movie collection for John Wayne and Sandra Bullock (above)

Gibson Murphy


Next to it was a five film collection for Eddie Murphy and one for “Antiheroes”. Apparently Mel Gibson is now persona non grata enough to be removed from the title. I wholeheartedly support actual consequences for bad behavior and this certainly gave me a good laugh at Gibson’s expense.

Mind you, the fact police will have some words over this. Payback absolutely features an antihero. The Road Warrior is also pretty much an antihero movie. Conspiracy Theory features a protagonist who is insane but not an antihero. Edge of Darkness features a grieving father searching for justice. Finally, We Were Soldiers is a fairly standard war picture. So honestly only 40% of the collection is about antiheroes.
