You know the drill.
Man and woman go to Blockbuster to pick a movie to watch together. Man picks Guy Movie, woman picks Chick Flick. Flip a coin to see whose movie goes first.
Really Blockbuster should just do away with the current genre set-up in the store and just have 2 sections:
"Guy Movies" and "Chick Flicks".
The Guy Movie usually has a black and red cover.
The title tends to feature the word "Heat"... "Night" ...or "Vengeance".
Most feature Denzel Washington and/or Tommy Lee Jones.
Something is always being stolen/ blown up/ robbed/ hijacked or smuggled.
Someone is always getting shot/ stabbed/ kidnapped or tortured.
This is being accomplished with guns/ knives, tasers and/or explosives.
There are lots of cars/ trains/ freighters/ helicopters and fighter jets.
The hero is a cop/ex-cop/marine/ex-marine/bounty hunter/ex-bounty hunter/CIA/ex-CIA/FBI/ex-FBI/ detective/ex-detective.
More often than not he's a "renegade".
Quite often he prefers 'his own brand of justice".
The bad guys are foreign, or, if not foreign, ugly.
The hero is married to/divorced from/interested in a "good woman".
I can guarantee you this 'good woman' just wants to watch "Love, Actually" with a glass of chardonnay.
