Okay, by now, you all know I'm an action film fan. I love fast-moving adventures films, and I'm not disturbed by violence in these movies because it has no relation to real-life violence.
I entertained myself in traffic yesterday morning trying to name my favorite action films. Here they are in alphabetical order:
2) Blade Runner
3) Bourne Ultimatum
4) Casino Royale
6) Die Hard
7) First Blood
8) Lethal Weapon
9) The Long Kiss Goodnight
10) Pulp Fiction
11) The Rock
12) The Terminator
You probably know where this is leading.
Rambo premieres today.
First Blood is one of my all-time favorite action movies. First Blood, Part II would probably make my top twenty favorite films.
Of course, Rambo III was god-awful. It was such a huge embarrassment that I can't even believe I'm thinking about going to see the new film.
It's been twenty-five years since the first film and almost twenty years since the third one. Sly Stallone is now sixty-one years old.
I've known more than one guy over sixty whom I found very sexy. Somehow I don't think Sly is going to be one of them.
I'm so conflicted.
