Lots of Old Guys Still Making Movies

From the set of "Die Hard 5"
Between Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Al Pacino, Christopher Walken, and Alan Arkin, there's going to be more wrinkly skin on the silver screen this winter than Barbara Walters' colonoscopy.

This is a great trend and I hope it continues. In fact, I think action movies should ONLY feature actors over 60. That way if it is true that violent movies influence the behavior of young people then the stupid kids will see that the violence is being done by old men. They'll see old guys shooting stuff and think "I don't want to be old like that!" and drop the gun instead of running around all spry and nimble like a twenty-year-old. If anyone deserves to be violent it's old people who have made it as far as they have.

Young people should have to earn the right to be violent in society. Instead we have teenagers going around killing people because they think they've got nothing to live for. Meanwhile what do you think elderly people have to live for? Probably way less than the average child, but do they go on mass killing sprees? NOPE!
