I dislike a lot of things, I do not hate much at all. For instance, although I understand mathematics, I hate it. In World of Tanks there is one map I almost hate, it is that bad. Yes, I dislike things, but honestly I love more than I dislike. This evening I was vegetating on how unfair life is, I didn’t feel like writing, and I didn’t want to mess around with my store. So I turned on HBO and everything was blah.

Then I noticed one movie. A movie I should never have watched. One of my best friends is an accountant, another is a Physics major and teaches. You would think I would have much different friends, but alas, no one can figure out life. Which brings us to this movie. Starring Ben Affleck (the duck thing in the commercials-Afflack) Now as good as Mr. Affleck is, I never cared for him, he was too tall to be in movies with normal people, face it he is a ogre.

With two strikes against the film I am asking myself why did I watch it at all?  I am not the kind of person to get bored so that wasn’t it. I watched it. J.K. Simmons plays the head of one of the US Treasury Departments. The movie features many well-known actors and Actresses. The Accountant Oct 2016

There were parts that were slow, after all it is partially about math. Yet I found it fascinating that someone like my best friend could find so many errors in math that the culprit was caught, add to that the other friend just went over her books and found another scoundrel. I guess math could be important, guess we need to shoot embezzlers.

The movie also had a lot of action in it and a lot of killing. Only bad guys got killed. Which makes me wonder if accountants are so good with numbers maybe they are the bad guys? Or at least could be!

To top it off, I have learned that they are making a sequel! I rate the movie 4 out of 5. Enjoy it

    The title would be enough for me not to watch it, but as you give it 4/5 it must be good 🙂

    I don’t necessarily buy the concept of a kid with OCD (or whatever his condition is) becoming a violent person. Other than that, this could be an interesting movie. Remmy does have a pretty good eye for movies. 🙂

    This is so strange that I’ve never heard of this movie. Now I gotta see it. No one ever makes movies about accountants. It looks really good from the trailer.

    I watched this movie over the weekend and it WAS AWESOME. Now I want to be a ninja accountant.

    PS, I didn’t think Affleck was too tall for this movie.
