Am I the only one who thought Cliffhanger was shite, then? Just did nowt for me.


Opening sequence was terrifying - the rest of the movie was great fun to laugh at, all highly impossible and ridiculous. Lithgow who can actually act clearly was following the director's instructions to create a cartoon villain. Whatshername with the short dark hair made me wish constantly for some sort of avalanche of ice shards to carry her away and so put an end to the misery of watching her.


True Lies >>> Cliffhanger

We're entering into a whole new grading system here.

Some times I go to mention "fists" to my mates and then realise it's not actually a universal system of grading things.

You should do it. The bemused looks are always funny.

Not that I've ever used a fist rating system in a conversation in real life...

I might start rating archaeology sites like that, see if it catches on.

"Grimes Graves is a classic 5 fist Neolithic flint mine, whereas Cissbury Hill is an underrated underground 4 fist one."

I thought you meant archaeology websites for a minute.

I had a bitchy "first religion forums and now this, you tart!" retort lined up . . .

I think some people are looking at them all wrong, you're not supposed to be looking for the quality in script writing, acting etc you're looking for the little subtle things that are unintentionally funny or the general over the top ridiculousness of it all.

Firstly in 5 of his 6 good films he has some of the greatest character names ever

Nico Toscani, Mason Storm, Gino Felino, Casey Ryback and Forest Taft. I mean Mason Storm? that is fucking brilliant, would name my son that.

For having less hair in his earlier films than he does now and sporting a beautiful receding hairline pony tail combo. No one else was championing this at the time. Steven was a pioneer.

From the great Hard To Kill, someone has kindly made a little highlights package here

Quality chat with the bad guys in the store, his love of breaking peoples limbs, the music in his car, the fact that when in his coma, his pony tail hair goes all messy and they seem to shave his cheeks but let his facial hair grow into a wise old warrior beard on his chin and upper lip, that after being in a coma for 7 years it takes up just a couple of weeks of a lovely training montage to get back to full fitness.

The masterpiece that is Out For Justice, his Brooklyn accent is fuckin out of this world.

The bit at 0:15 when he says "you like to beat up on women" the accent mixed with the utter shite acting as he tilts his head is magnificent. But it really is just a masterclass in fuckin hilariously shit acting.

Don't know how any one can't see the magic in this.

I'm sure there are similar videos of the great scenes from Nico, Marked For Death and Under Siege out there as well.

It entirely depends how you approach them.

A few beers would make me entirely agree with you.

Remember On Deadly Ground?
I paid money to see that at the cinema. :lol: :lol:
Michael Caine's hair dye and Seagal's hilariously impassioned eco-message at the end were the only memorable things about it.

I mentioned ON Deadly Ground in the film thread. It's a real fucking bad film. Even at the age of 15 I knew it was bad, but it wasn't until I returned to it some 10 years after its original release that it hit me just how goddamn awful it was.

Seagal's late 80's to early 90's films were decent action films of the time. Out For Justice was quite good, even if Seagal was just doing his best(i.e shit) Brando impression.

He is an example of an actor that was ruined by fame. It went straight to his head, then he started making really bad decisions.

When I worked in a video rental shop, On Deadly Ground was the in demand new release, every copy was out every night for three or four months straight. Unbelievable. Just shows the kind of customers the place had...

It's because nobody saw it at the cinemas! :D

Michael Caine often jokes that he did that film when his career was in the dumps, but that film was a step up from him really as far as profiles are concerned. Seagal just came off Under Siege which was a big hit and he was really a big star then.

Under Siege is a good fun action film.

Seagal is a total bell end. Fame definitely went to his head. Although I've never actually read or watched any interviews with him from the early days to see if he was a cock back then.

He churns out like about 6 films a year now. I'd love to see him on the set of some of these just to see how utterly unmotivated he must be, just shooting scenes and not giving a flying fuck. Probably doesn't even know what films he's working on. Constantly asking if a body double can do it, so he doesn't need to get out his trailer.

I tried to watch one called Submerged with him and Vinnie Jones, one of 3 films in my history of watching films I had to turn off. So, so bad.

I still got to see him live with his painted on/fake hair and tiny guitar hanging over his gut. About 500 folk there, 498 of them there just to see Casey Ryback.
