Jack is awesome......

Jack is so awesome in this movie. He represents a field of rational twisters who lie to feed what they think is a legitimate purpose or whatever it is we have convinced ourselves is justified. His speech goes to the core of everyone guilty of rationalization...........AND he has actually convinced himself that what he did what right because there was a greater good...........sometimes the rational is money, political power or control. Any way you slice it.........it is damn deceptive and the only way to conquer the deception is to see the truth admit it.........and then change. And you will be free.

ok nik, first of all we find yet another match between us. jack nicholson is one of my FAVORITE actors. whew! LOVE that guy!

and then this scene from one of my favorite movies, a few good men, is the best thing ever written and acted out!! LOVE it! and of course you and i are total truth worshippers. WOO-HOO! too bad for anyone else who can't handle it! fug em!

guess, what? jack had me mesmerized with his spin on the "truth" in this scene when i first saw this. for a minute i was like yeah, we can't handle the truth, so you do whatever you need to to protect us, colonel. and then i was like, whoa! uh, no, uh psycho NUT job on the loose! but all in all it was a great story and a GREAT movie.

another good post nikki.

later gator.
