80s And 90s Action Hero'sthinking of life passing in the bl
To me the "golden years" started when school ended, films are a massive part of my life i watch them to much but the genre of action has gone generic to me, do you remember when you would be so excited about the new Arnie or sylvester film weeks of anitcipation until it came to the video shop or if you were lucky enough to watch it on the big screen, which didn't really happen when I was young, the first film i remember seeing at the cinema was Superman and it was abosutely fricking fantastic I was transfixed watching my parents with all these people staring not taking their eyes away from the creation laid out before them, here's hoping the new remake does it justice.
Back to my point, I cannot for the life of me think of an outstanding action moive hardman that would make me drag myself to the big screen, Jason Statham is a great action actor but lacks charisma, Dwayne " the rock " Johnson has great screen presence but let's face it oscar worthy I think not. The fact that for me in the 80s and 90s the best " actor " out of all of the hardmen obviously wasn't Arnie or Chuck but was a toss up between Sylvester and Lundgren yes i said it Lundgren who was pretty good in the original punisher film which is and always will be underrated. Obviously becasue of Rocky and I stress this Rambo the first one, Sly was for me the better actor. Jean claude to me is a legend for bloodsport, kickboxer and various other films and is a different subject all together to me !
I could go on for hours about films having a collection of over 500 dvds / blu-rays, I have intense pride in this even to the point of having them in Genre order and some in actors, This blog was written because again I am bored but also becasue I think i just wanted to see something different in this section of the site, also to show that blogs can have content !
