I just watched Big Trouble in Little China. The quintessential 80s movies. Ninjas, machine guns, ninjas, magic, ninjas, people exploding, ninjas, big *** trucks, ninjas, ghosts, ninjas, ninjas, monsters, Raiden, a beholder, and more ninjas. Action comedy at it's best.
Dammit man! Put some spoiler tags on that. You just gave away the entire plot of the film! ;)
It was randomly flipping through channels, but the last film I watched was The Poseidon Adventure. The original. Hadn't seen it in years (decades?). Still relatively cheesy, but Gene Hackman pretty much always kicks some ****.
The last non random channel flipping film was The American. Slower paced than I expected, but kinda interesting flick. Definitely had a more old school feel to it. You pretty much spend the whole film knowing what's coming, and wondering if the main character's figured it out, pretty sure he has, but he's just going through the motions in a way that doesn't reveal anything. Then bang pow! Done. It was a bit too simplistic plot-wise for my tastes, but if you're looking for a slow paced, reasonably intelligent flick, and don't care about too much excitement or action, it's not bad. Most of the character motivations are implied rather than detailed, so if you like stuff spelled out for you or handed to you in direct dialog, you probably wont like it. But if you're sick and tired of film writers always spelling every detail of every character out to you as a means of appealing to the lowest common denominator you'll be happily surprised that this film doesn't do this. Still wish it had a bit more twist to it, but I guess that's what they were going for.
