Speaking of Jackie, that end fight he had with The Jet in Wheels On Meals... incredible, even in 2012. That is also something you can find on YouTube with little trouble. You should probably watch the entire film as there's great martial arts throughout but that final fight is amazing.
Jack Reacher sounds like something I'd enjoy; that line which was quoted literally made me laugh out loud.
Don't worry about not recognizing Benny "The Jet" Urquidez. I saw him in one of the trailers on Trailer War, and of course I've seen Grosse Pointe Blank, so when felix posted that picture, I was fairly certain it was him. Still, that's really cool he's still doing jobs on movies, as it should make for some interesting fights.
I really want to see Jack Reacher before I go back to work, so hopefully in the next week we can see it. Right now I'm set on seeing Django Unchained, if we can make it on Christmas evening or the next day.

duke fleed, I certainly want Tatum to...TAKEM on in full Retaliation mode, so that he can be worthy of being the other CHAN in Expendables 3.

Voyage of the Rock Aliens is SUPER fun. Worth noting that the movie's aliens are played by a real band named Rhema, who were SPECIFICALLY designed to be a Devo knock-off. I love Devo, but I was the drugs that record exec was taking.
Big Guns (which I saw under the title No Way Out) and Man From Hong Kong, though- FIND THESE. Everything you'd ever want in an action movie. They ABSOLUTELY deliver.
I was laughing so much at the Voyage Of The Rock Aliens trailer, and thought to myself that it would be a perfect midnight movie, and yeah, I dug that they were basically a Devo knockoff. Gotta see the other 2 films.

When you're playing mad Russian MIKHAIL ROSTOV, the only way to kill guys is to shoot them in the junk. That makes sure they're dead. Plus it just looks cool and original, as I've never seen that done in another movie. Action movies need more of that.

One day, I hope that somebody does a full-on compilation of 80's-era VHS trailers. If I have to do it myself? I WILL.
As for my current Christmas viewing? Silent Night, Deadly Night parts 1 and 2, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang, Bad Santa (two of the funniest movies of the past decade), The Last Boy Scout (masterpiece), and The Long Kiss Goodnight (love it now more than ever).
Was gonna do my Die Hard double feature last night. Watched the first and most of the second but fell asleep in the last 30-40 minutes. Will watch that tonight, followed by (hopefully) Scrooged and The Ref.
Glad that my viewing of Trailer War last night has sparked a lot of interest here. I'm glad I sprung for it when it was on sale last week, but its gone up in price on the Drafthouse Films website (only place it's available right now), and they charge a lot for shipping. It's ridiculous. Still, it's worth it to see all these cool trailers.
I had started revisiting Silent Night, Deadly Night part 1 last night, but then got the urge to switch over to Trailer War, and I made the right choice, as I can get back to Silent Night, Deadly Night later.
I'd certainly love to see a compilation of 80's era VHS trailers!
