Eight reasons you should see "American Sniper", right now

  1. Pretty good movie, better story
  2. Chris Kyle is badass
  3. Bradley Cooper and Clint Eastwood deserve giant kudos on the role they created, and Cooper's acting; the overall feel reminds me of movies from the 50s and 60s, you know, back when men were men
  4. The ending is a stunner, even if you already expect it
  5. Hollywood finally made a movie that celebrates an American military hero from the Iraq War, one that does not lecture the audience in a condescending tone about politics and “torture” and the supposed evils wrought on the world by the American military
  6. It set several box office records - you don't want to miss out
  7. It is not one of those crappy, "look how awful we are" movies about America's role and influence in the world
  8. Several of the above drive liberals nuts 

Thank God for Chris Kyle and all the other “sheepdogs” who risk their lives to protect the rest of us. You all have my humble and eternal gratitude.
