    I work in grocery. I have not gotten sick. My fellow employees have not gotten sick. If the virus were even remotely as contagious as its being presented as, why haven’t entire store staffs who come into contact with hundreds of people per day, thousands per week, all falling ill in mass nationwide?

    Stupid. They could've capitalized on current events by having Murtaugh retire to become a political activist and they force Riggs to partner with a Jewish cop.
    Quote Quoting Donald Glover
    I was actually just reading about Matt Damon and he’s like, ‘There’s a culture of outrage.’ I’m like, ‘Well, they have a reason to be outraged.’ I think it’s a lot of dudes just being scared. They’re like, ‘What if I did something and I didn’t realize it?’ I’m like, ‘Deal with it.’

    This is fucking pointless, considered that Lethal Weapon has a really generic plot. They should do Samurai Cop instead.

    Phew, what a relief. I was worried I'd actually have to go back and watch a film from the *shudder* 80s. I hope Ashton Kutcher's available.

    Really, all this is is a plot to make a buddy cop film that could be called anything but with a prepackaged audience.

    Except that actually had Bruce Willis and it was pretty awesome. Yep, I didn't feel like Die Hard quite as much as the other three, but what does that even mean?

    Guess that's what happens when you assume another Glover in the movie/TV world exists. Wonder how much that happens to him.

    Donner is 87. I think a new director might actually be better.

    Bring in James Gunn.

    Fuck Gunn.

    Obvious fit is Shane Black.

    Or no, even better would be Werner Herzog!

    LOL, Herzog!

    I didn't make you an admin; I only suggested it. Might want to shoot number8 or Ezee a PM to get yourself demoted.
