No-one talk about Crystal Skull.
But Star Wars
No one else is even close.
it was decided...DECIDED...that the winners were arnie and harrison ford.
i rewatched Running Man the other day and was grinning all the way through
Terminators 1 & 2
Predator (the high water mark of action movies)
The Running Man
Last Action Hero (the precursor to every other 'I'm too old for this shit' self-reflexive actioners)
Harrison Ford has never impaled a man with a steel pipe, let alone had an appropriate quip to follow up.
I think I really have to redraw the list.
princess: 'i suppose nothing hurts you?'
arnie (drunk): 'only pain!'
fuck me that's poor. And all the inevitable racism and xenophobia which seemed oddly acceptable in all the old films suddenly became jarring and properly unpleasant. I guess it's like grandparents, where it seems harmless because it's from a different era.
Kindergarten Cop, for pity's sake
recently announced though - the legend of conan
... there's a Six Days & Seven Nights
I like Harrison Ford but Meths' point is valid!
Is a pretty decent addition to this list: I'd rate it about the Commando level.
but at least you've been wrong with style by suggesting someone awesome.
3 - quite entertaining but starting to become Bwuce the superhero.
4 - LOL
5 - Ditto (from what I am led to believe)
2. A crushing indictment of American Cold War foreign policy. Has Al in it. Still set at Christmas. Still has an interesting twist.
3. An allegory about racial desegregation in the US armed forces, set against the back drop of the social segregation of modern America.
4. Yes you’re right
2. Bit shit. Second worst. Got Sipowicz in though
3. Pretty good. Second best
4. Ludicrous, but enjoyable. Better than 2.
5. Pretty shit, but completely suspend your sense of disbelief and pretend you're watching a shitty 80s van damme movie or something, and you'll be entertained enough. Still the worst of the bunch, but better than Crystal fucking Skull.
I'd watch DH 4 again over DH2.
It's a nasty film. It has loads of innocent people brutally killed all over the place and the villain is absolutely fucking boring. Oh you're doing Thai Chi naked? Oh wow. Where are you quips? WHERE IS YOUR JOY AT BEING A THIEF? OH WAIT, YOU'RE JUST A LOW-DOWN STINKING MURDERING FUCK.
Tim Olyphant is a quality bad guy. Yeah it's stupid, but entertaining. 2 is horrible and 5 was just errruugughtjgrtgrtjjvbjrbjtgrjghh what the fuck.
You being the expert and all
I tried to watch the Last Boy Scout once. Bored me shitless.
he's a bit of a ponce
how VERY indie of you. Jesus that's just the final nail.
and at a push A Better Tomorrow II.
Man I miss pre-Hollywood John Woo.
the first two Hollywood films he made were watchable, Replacement Killers and The Corruptor, but I don't really want to ever see Bulletproof Monk or whatever and now he basically just plays 'Mystical Old Chinese Guy' in everything.
including it alongside star wars, indy and blade runner is frankly ludicrous
but it's not on the same standard d'you not think?
but then, i think the second one is pretty bad. maybe the least enjoyable actually. the only good bit is the mine trucks chase bit.
also, indie doesn't do enough travelling so we don't get as many maps with red lines on.
I was never a big Star Wars fan, so this was my Phantom Menace. So poor.
I know it *SPOILER I GUESS* turns out there's a reason for him being so goddamn wooden, but geez he makes that film hard to care about.
Completely the opposite for me. I love his portrayal and can watch that film over and over
he was pissed off at having to do the film. Ironically*, this turned out to be perfect for the charatcer
* correct use
the legend is that he did it deliberately badly so they couldn't use it but they did anyway
It's Jude Law.
I really fucking hate his acting you guys. With apologies to the hate thread.
HIS FACE <3
Apparently he'#s quite short though, which I wouldn't like. SO yeah, fuck off jude with your cheekbones and perfect eyes.
oh shit actually...
No hang on Legend and the other two MIB's are horseshit.
even if he wasn't in Conan the Barbarian
ICOULDWINARABBIT 2 CRUISE CONTROL
ICOULDWINARABBIT 3 THE ICOULDWINARABBITING
A GOOD DAY TO WINARABBIT
but i think someone should think of kurt russell.
...did some good actioney stuff in some non-action films in the 80s in Frantic and Witness. Plus he did some alright old man actiony stuff in his Jack Ryan flicks and Air Force One.
Bonus point for playing Colonel G Lucas in Apocalypse Now?
Like him in general though
...there's not much other action in that film. Some drooling.
even if his eyes are a bit close together
