"I'm A Professional Killer"

I've watched Grosse Point Blank for the first time in ages, it never gets dull, old or boring. There's something really refreshing about the film that keeps funny and moving every time i watch it. Firstly its got a great cast, John Cusack pulls off insecure, confused, middle aged man so well, i'm sure (or hope) thats exactly what i'm gonna be like when i get to that age, altho hopefully not a hit-man, Minnie Driver so sexy, confident but still with an air of adolescent longing which really hits the spot with me. The rest of the cast are play some great characters too, from Jeremy Piven's desperate best friend to Alan Arkin's troubled therapist and the list goes on. The script is immense too, the story is light-hearted enough so its not a effort to sit through but is still moving, very very funny and sometimes ridiculous, especially the fight sequences.
But the thing that struck me this time was the quality of the soundtrack. Nearly every tune is one of the recognisably awesome 80s classics from The Specials to The Bangles, which make you want to sing-along until you're told to shut up by your housemate, who's sitting on the sofa next to you trying to watch the film. It makes me wish that i went to school in the 80s, just so some good music would be played at my reunion, coz i know its just gonna be Take That, Spice Girls and hopefully a bit of S Club (well that would get me moving) but i'd prefer to dance to The Jam or The Clash. The theme tune, if you want to call it that, by The Violent Femmes, works so well with the nature of the film, especially with the shots its used in. Just the whole film's put together so well, one of my favourite movies for sure.
Here's some classic tunes of the soundtrack:

Violent Femmes - Blister In The Sun

The Specials - A Message To You Rudy
Nena - 99 Luft Balloons

Thats some quick posting! 'Blister in The Sun' and 'A Message To You Rudy' are the best songs in the film by far!

Blister in the Sun is a classic.

I want to like this film, but I have insomniac disease... I always, always fall asleep when watching it. Perhaps down to unfortunate choice of viewing times. Who can say.

"Lord, I have a problem!"
"What's the problem, Eve?"
"Lord, I know you've created me and have provided this beautiful garden and all of these wonderful animals and that hilarious comedy snake, but I'm just not happy."
"Why is that, Eve?" came the reply from above.
"Lord, I am lonely. And I'm sick to death of apples." "Well, Eve, in that case, I have a solution. I shall create a man for you."
"What's a 'man,' Lord?"
"This man will be a flawed creature, with aggressive tendencies, an enormous ego and an inability to empathize or listen to you properly, he'll basically give you a hard time. He'll be bigger, faster, and more muscular than you. He'll be really good at fighting and kicking a ball about and hunting fleet-footed ruminants, But, he'll be pretty good in the sack."
"I can put up with that," says Eve, with an ironically raised eyebrow.
"Yeah well, he's better than a poke in the eye with a burnt stick. But, there is one condition."
"What's that, Lord?"
"You'll have to let him believe that I made him first."
:D :D :D
