Especially when matched with my flat top/mullet combo and brown framed spectacles.


It's tempting

Red Heat does have some good lines

I never realised until the other week that Sub-Zero was played by Erland Van Lidth, the guy who played Grossberger in Stir Crazy.

He only actually appeared in four films (Alone in the Dark and The Wanderers being the other two) before he died in 1987.

You are right on all counts except one, he didn't play Sub Zero he played Dynamo. Sub Zero was played by Professor Toru Tanaka

Well, you know what that means then.

I'm going to have to watch The Running Man again, just to make sure I don't ever make that same schoolboy error.
I know it's been a few years since I saw it last but there's just no excuse for that level of wrongness.

It's as good a reason as any to go watch it again :-D It's almost like you planned it!

:roll:

You're looking at it all wrong :D "technically" it's not a good action film but judging it using the set 80s/early 90s action film parameters it's brilliant.

If you can't appreciate the talents of JCVD especially in such stellar work as Double Impact then I can only give you my sympathy

Bloodsport, Kickboxer and AWOL (maybe Universal Soldier). After that, he can fuck off.

JCVD's best old school films were Hard Target, Timecop, Wrong Bet and Kickboxer.

Double Impact seemed cool in 1991, but when I returned to it 12 or so years later I thought it was just plain bad.

Kickboxer and Blood Sport are the 2 absolute classics for me. Hard Target in 3rd place. His cheesy acting/accent/dress sense in the early films is genius.

oh fuck, I meant Bloodsport, not Wrong Bet.

"Don't fuck with the baldies" classic line from a classic film. Don't think i've ever seen Alone in the Dark though, but Stir Crazy and Running Man are obviously classics as well.

Hard Target and Timecop were fucking awful, even in the context of cheesy action moves of the time.
