In honor of “Olympus has Fallen” and “G.I Joe Retaliation”, and to welcome back all our regulars who were scared away by yesterday’s MTESS (LOL), I thought we’d turn our attention to action movies in this week’s discussion.
I thought, however, that a straight up “What’s your favorite action movie” would turn into a debate between “Die Hard” and “Raiders of the Lost Ark”, so let’s add a twist… let’s explore that sub layer of movie that, like “Olympus Has Fallen”, you know are stupid, but you enjoy watching them anyways.
There’s absolutely no shortage of those, and it will broaden the choices up beyond “Die Hard” and “Raiders” (which aren’t dumb). If someone wants to select “A Good Day to Die Hard” though, be my guest! 🙄
So what’s YOUR favorite? Will you reach back to something from the heyday of Stallone and Schwarzenegger, or will you choose something a little more recent, like, say, the first “G.I. Joe”? Maybe you’re a Michael Bay fan, there’s so many in his oeuvre that qualify! 😀
Ok, let’s hear it! What’s YOUR favorite big dumb action movie?!
Independence Day. Big, Very Dumb, and a whole boat load of fun.
And Jeff Goldblum rules. 😀
Ahhh, there are so many! I’m going to go with Commando, just because I saw it recently and had so much fun with it. I needed something to keep me awake @ 3am, and that was the perfect fit.
No need for excuses, brother, I’m a HUGE Commando fan. I’ll put that puppy on in prime time! LOL 😀

Twister. Growling tornadoes, explosions, a race between goofy storm chasers and evil storm chasers, flying cows, Bill Paxton and Helen Hunt trying dangerous ways to study tornadoes, should I continue?
