Jeremy Renner Sniping

Jeremy Renner is always looking down the barrel of a gun (or bow and arrow) at a distant target.

Here is little Jeremy Renner in 2004 in S.W.A.T., his first big movie, and already sniping.

Here is Jeremy Renner sniping at zombies in the city in 28 Days Later.

And now he is sniping at zombies in the woods in 28 Weeks Later.

Setting his sights on some non-zombies in The Hurt Locker. Man, Jeremy Renner and his love of gun barrels!

No, Jeremy Renner, you’re pointing the gun all wrong here! How are you gonna save the town like that??

Much better, Jeremy Renner!

Jeremy Renner likes arrows too, as long as they’ve got a scope. There’s like ten million Marvel movies with him doing this so I’ll just post the one, you get it.

Okay, we’re back to guns! Here Jeremy Renner is the Jason Bourne replacement and now he has a beard.

First it was zombies in the forest, now it’s witches in the forest. Jeremy Renner just doesn’t like spooky Halloween people wandering around the woods.

He had a lot of weird mystical guns in Hansel.

Now he’s sniping in a movie called Wind River. If you like Jeremy Renner sniping things, you’ll love this movie.

He didn’t get to snipe anything in Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol, so he said “I’m leaving!!” and did not return for the next chapter. Sorry, Jeremy Renner, you can’t always be sniping.

oh no he heard me now he’s going to snipe me !!!!!


Weekly Fiver #23

Welcome to the Weekly Fiver, where I’ll pick five recently released songs of varying degrees of quality and thoroughly break them down for you. No two songs will be on the same tier, and they’ll be listed from best to worst. The top song will be an excellent must-hear tune, while the bottom song will be one you ought to stay away from or else you will make your ears sad. It’s all very scientific.

The Top 10 Radiohead Songs

Radiohead‘s acceptance of their origins has been a slow burn. It’s only recently that they began to play breakthrough classic “Creep” live again, and this year saw the re-release of OK Computer featuring long-buried B-sides that hinted at the direction they could have gone in. Instead of becoming figureheads for “smart” hipsters they could have been palling around with Robbie Williams and Take That.

That 1997 album was a bold move and paid off incredibly, but it was also the gateway to the band’s iffy experimental years. This isn’t to say that the work they’ve done since then hasn’t yielded great tunes, but the output of accessible, concise material has drastically decreased. For every “Optimistic” or “Knives Out” there was a “Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors”, “These Are My Twisted Words”, and “Feral”. It’s become apparent that the band is now actively eschewing standard pop music structure. (Strange then, that they tried to land the opening theme to the last James Bond movie).

All that said, this list stretches across their discography. It’s not one of those heretical countdowns that ignores anything from this millennium. Nor is it sheer adulation for the band’s “brave stand” against the conventions of old. There’s a little bit of everything, including some oft-overlooked songs that merit some recognition. Alright, let us go.
