really resonated with me. A couple of guys running around serving up hot, steaming justice to local criminals? That speaks to me! I get
that. Plus, even if I wasn't a midnight hero, (which I was), I have a feeling I'd still love Boondock Saints

A winning formula.
All that said, you'd think I'd be thrilled at the prospect of Twondock Saints.
that, but you'd be wrong. You'd be as wrong as Little Zviad, the former head of the now defunct Chechnyan mob, (which is to say,
). Instead, I couldn't be more unhappy. Troy Duffy made a good, concise street-hero movie with a great cast and a strong ending- why can't he just leave it alone? In a world where sequels, prequels and remakes seem to be the only choices, why not stand out and make something new? People loved the first Saints

And it's not. It's just a movie. Just like the other movies. You probably have fond memories of the other movies. But if you went back and looked at them, they might not hold up the same way your memory holds up." And who was that shameless, pudgy nerd?
