Media Center>Favorite Action Flicks?
Mennonite 12:14 PM 06-05-2021
Raiders of the Lost Ark and First Blood are classics, but I have a soft spot for the cheesier ones with bad one liners with over the top violence.


My favorite dumb (but awesome!) action flick is Invasion U.S.A. (1985) starring Chuck Norris and the immortal Richard Lynch.

You don't get scenes like this in modern action movies:




So what are some of your favorites?

yeah, I bought it on VHS in the 90s and it was called Hara-kiri. I wore that tape out. it is closer to Chambara than it is a realistic jidaigeki. still, you cant go wrong with Nakadai in the lead role. Hara-kiri was remade recently but I haven't seen the remake.

My favorite bad action movie is Commando with Schwarzenegger. In the right "state of mind", it's also a hilarious comedy.

Commando is a top five 80s action flick, and one of my all-time favorite quotable movies.

On the flipside, we have one of my favorite cheese-fests Stone Cold (1991):




The Boz, William Forsyth, and Lance Henrikson in the ultimate white trash action flick.

Time to crack the whip!! Damn I always loved this movie too. I still vividly remember watching this and Xtro on VHS on a weekend I stayed at my dads. Back to back lol. Obviously a great memory for some reason.

Also to add to the thread. One of my favorites has always been The Rundown starring The Rock. Also part action part horror I loved Overlord. Was crazy from start to finish.

Ooooh, yes. Very underrated.

Add Day After Tomorrow to the list as well.

Watched that one for the first time within the last few years and would agree on it being so bad itís good.

A lot of Arnieís other classics are legitimately good movies.
