taxing the movies
got a repost going because my 2Q taxes will be due shortly and the Summer movie season begins. since it is #TBT I want to throw it back to principled accounting and assassinations...
I watched The Accountant last night for a second time. Truly an entertaining, interesting story that was well written, acted, directed. The only blip for me -Raymond King’s shoes.
King was a good dad, it was the one thing he got right. Probably had great insurance coverage, but when he put his feet up to reminisce about what got him to his position there was no soul on his soles. Not even backyard fodder much less the wear of work. This was a missed opportunity to further differentiate between the detail-oriented finisher and the one who has been given everything as a gift.
Intelligence Superheroes are desperately needed in the good ol’ US of A at the moment, or they are due their due, rather. I enjoy and am grateful for the freedom to finish my popcorn & thus offer up the following fellowship-seeking-sequel-thriller that should be in the works.
Jason Bourne (JB) vs. The Accountant (TA)
Do they team up or hunt one another down? Maybe they have a similar origin story as military kids? Yeah, they beat each other up as kids. OOOH wait - same dad, different mother! I am hunting for some goodwill…
So possible plot, story, thoughts;
JB, unable to forgive his past pain, is now addicted to oxycontin-codone-oin-entanyl supplied by one of TA’s cartel clients. To break his addiction he busts into beast mode removing the cartel underlings to find the source of the supply.
Meanwhile TA is hired by a rogue, do-gooder Senator to track down the Black Ops money being wasted by the Government. The Treasury Sect’y is involved somehow, maybe as a producer.
TA uncovers a BlackBriar-esque Paypal scheme, JB switches to ApplePay, there’s a shootout at Starbucks, Amazon drones get involved.
What’s my point? I don’t have one. I like popcorn-finish-worthy spy movies and this is how I avoid #Syria news and walls of coal and the fact we have a chemical weapon problem in the heartland of America.
I will assume the opioid factories will be the next tomahawk targets. Empathy, not aggression is a better road to recovery. Let’s get to work, account for our principles, so we can finally put our feet up.
