Agreeing with jaime on the elaboration BlackLight. I would also appreciate that/would find this helpful.

You did choose to communicate in a sarcastic manner to BlackLight first OAA. Technically he/she did give an answer to your question, even if the answer wasn't to your satisfaction.

BlackLight - OAA is not an American and so does not have the background context that you're taking for granted.  So instead of dumping wise-sounding platitudes on him like that, you should spend some time elaborating on what you actually mean.

It's all meaningless until it means something

Yes, thank you for that platitude. Care to (try to) answer the question in the OP?

I did. Sorry if the plain truth eludes you.

"The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants" is another one. Everyone has heard of this - but almost nobody organizes their life around it as a principle. Until an accident of history brings it into focus, and suddenly it's their North Star.

In a valley of violence
8/10
A western in the style of spaghetti western that borders on spoof.  Nothing but fun.

Just to be clear, I'm not giving my own answer to this nor "suggesting" what I think. Fact is, I only know of this chant because I've seen it from time to time in articles pertaining to the south being sore losers of the Civil War (or the "War of Northern Aggression", as I hear some of them call it), but I've never actually seen it being used, so I have no real frame of reference to actually be able to provide an educated opinion.

You're too young to be a grandmother. Can't the baby wait a few more years? :P
Seriously though, congrats.

Shot Caller is a film who likes criminal stories

Welcome to the forum Martin Richards.

Have any other films that compare to this one?  I'm not in a position to watch the trailer right now but I'm curious what aspects of a criminal story resonate with you.
