ACTION MOVIES I’LL ALWAYS WATCH IF THEY’RE ON TV
TV movies are a weird beast all their own, they don't quite work like regular movies. First they are broken up by commercials, which break flow, second no cursing. What it really comes down to is the movie must be good in chunks. This is a list of chunk movies.
- •Rush hourRush hour blends all the greatness of 90's race relations between blacks and Chinese people with a buddy cop flick. Every scene is amazing and it keeps me up at night that dave Chappelle could have been in it. What could have been? I don't know, but the existing movie is better than anything we could have ever hoped for
- •Con AirNick cage, check, hair, check, southern accent that doesn't actually sound like any southern person, check, Nick Cage as a sex symbol? Are you kidding me? I haven't even gotten to the insane eclectic cast that I have no idea how they assembled. This movie is so good it lands a plane on the vegas strip both physically and psychologically, not an easy task.
- •The MatrixThe mind fuck of all mind fucks. This movie has layers and all of them are amazing. Sure it has a weird green tint that caused all of hollywood to believe that "every movie should have a color, probably grey" and Keanu Reeves, but this movie was amazing. Keanu did this and Bill and Teds excellent adventure, who doesn't have range?
- •The Dark knightBatman, I should just stop there, but I won't. There are plot holes, sure but I can watch that movie out of order and it will be amazing. Bonus points if you have seen interviews with Tom Waits from back in the day. If you haven't I'll wait. Okay? Done? Good, now how much more amazing is heaths performance? Are people going to talk about the terrible batman voice in 20 years when our kids are making fun of this movie? Of course, but who's their joker going to be?
