Cyprus Life – in pictures vs Fylde Coast Musings

Our new life in Cyprus began in early March 2004. Originally from a small mill town in Heywood, Lancashire (United Kingdom) we moved overseas spending a glorious 12 years in Limassol. Feel free to read my posts and view my many #photosofCyprus. However in 2016 we had to return permanently to UK due to family ill health. We're now living on the Fylde coast where the river Wyre meets the Irish sea in the north west of England. More places for us to discover as this part of the UK is not so familiar to us either.

Okay, where’s Jack Reacher?

So we now get to see the official trailer for the new Jack Reacher movie!

And, it’s VERY scary indeed…..

Scary as in if I was Jack Reacher I would be very scared because everyone in this movie is bigger than me! Now that cannot be, can it?

Common sense tells me I should be the one who is bigger than everyone else – or at least 99% of them.

While we’re on the subject, just where did that small voice come from? “Really?”

My imagination tells me that someone with Jack Reachers’ vital statistics: Height: 6’5″, Weight: 220-250 lbs. and a 50″ chest – well, he should definitely have a deeper voice!

Someone really got the casting all wrong!

Compare “Reacher” with hmmmm Mr Cruise’s vitals: Tom Cruise is 5 feet and 7 inches tall and weighs 77 kilograms.

One Shot is the new Jack Reacher movie.

For “Reacher” fans – it’s a nightmare come true when really all we wanted to see was our true image of Jack that we’ve loved over the years finally come to life.

Instead, this is just a complete parody!

I anticipated the movie would have been shot with an attempt at least to make Tom Cruise appear a bit, shall we say “larger than life” especially as the guy is only the same height as me! But no, it just didn’t happen.

Ah well, see for yourselves in the video trailer below which is an adaptation of the Lee Child book “One Shot“.

The “Reacher” fans are already baying for blood. Now, I wonder whose that will be?

The Jack Reacher movie is due for release in December. Will that be before the official end of the world  in December 2012? Maybe after could be the best option!
