Our lust for future comfort is the biggest thief of life

Rory: What is the big Thanksgiving film release this year?
Jon: Uhh… [consults Wikipedia] Heh. Oldboy.

Jon: Technically, it is a family film.

Jon: Homefront opens on Thanksgiving Eve too.
Rory: I just saw a preview for it. Jason Statham versus James Franco and Winona Ryder in the deep South? Fever dream.
Jon: I like how Jason Statham doesn't even try to do an American accent.

To explain this, the filmmakers have [Statham's character] starting with the DEA as a British Interpol agent. [source]

Jon: You know, I don't think I've ever heard Jason Statham do an American accent.
Rory: In Parker, he does a hilarious Texas accent.
Jon: [consults YouTube] Jennifer Lopez is in Parker?!

Jon: French-dubbed Jason Statham sounds remarkably like Jason Statham.

Comedy Sketch Idea: Jason Statham auditions for Saturday Night Live.

Rory: On this poster for Homefront, why is an American flag superimposed on his shirt? He's just protecting his daughter from meth-heads. It's not Red Dawn.
