Dear Charlie:

Is it just me, or were the movie blood-packs back in the '80s and early '90s more...I dunno...bloody?

Having watched a bunch of newer action movies over the last several weeks, I got the hankerin' for some good, ol'-fashioned shoot-em-ups, so I popped in such priceless standbys as Total Recall and Robocop. Man, when a chest got hammered in those oldie-goodies, it was carnage. No neat little holes with a trickle out the middle here. No, when those old packs went, they went in chunks and gobbets and splurts. Good times.

I imagine that's why these movies are considered both quaint and too violent. Heh. Probably why I like 'em so much.

Anyway, it's just a thought.
