Frankspank, I know you've been buying '80s action movies on Blu-ray. What are some of the good'uns, both in terms of quality of the film (so-bad-it's-good included) and video?

This was spurred on by watching Predator, obviously a classic but I hadn't seen it in probably ten years, and now I'm like sheeit, I need to get Running Man and Commando.

I've got some really bad stuff like Miami Connection and Samurai Cop, both of which are awesome, with Deadly Prey on its way.

There've been some Chuck Norris movies. I've never seen a Chuck Norris movie. I want to.

This is also just a general "what are some good '80s/'90s/whatever action movies" thread for all to give recommendations.

Bloodsport is badass. I'm thinking more guns and explosions action instead of martial arts doe.

Even though Miami Connection is more martial arts so I don't know what I want.

I'm sure I'll be on a big MA kick eventually. I've been hankering to watch Enter the Dragon.

Commando, Cobra, Delta Force.

But I'm assuming you've seen the first two a million times.

I've never seen Cobra but the girlfriend and I decided a couple days ago that we really, really need to see it.

I'll leave out the stuff that is considered "respectable" like First Blood, The Terminator, Die Hard, etc.

Stallone:
Tango & Cash
Demolition Man
Cliffhanger

Arnold:
The Running Man
Commando
Last Action Hero

Van Damme:
Bloodsport
TimeCop
Hard Target

Swayze:
Road House

Lundgren:
Red Scorpion
Masters of the Universe
Rocky IV
Showdown in Little Tokyo

Norris:
I actually think the best Norris movie is one he's not in: Avenging Force
Invasion USA
Hero & the Terror

Willis:
The Last Boy Scout

Seagal:
They're all the same. No humor, no acting, no plot. Just the scumbag with the ponytail snapping limbs and slapping guys around. So I guess Under Siege or Marked for Death


And I love Dead Heat. It's basically Tango & Cash with zombies, worse one liners, and Joe Piscopo and Treat Williams instead of Sly and Kurt Russell. I could seriously watch both of those back-to-back once a month.

Stone Cold is another good one. Stars some failed NFL mulleted nobody going up against Lance Henrikssen. Early '90s action movie to a tee.

Ok, last one: The Hidden may be my most wanted BD upgrade. Another buddy cop movie, but with Kyle McLachlan and some guy going after an alien

Conan the Destroyer and the Rambo movies are good, but I would almost say Conan the Barbarian and Highlander are two of my favorite movies of all time.

I went looking for the Best Buy–exclusive director's cut of Commando and literally no stores within 100 miles even carry it, and you can't order online. I guess it really was a limited edition. That either means it'll get a general release soon or I'll have to import the UK version (same disc).

I guess in all it's only a difference of under five minutes, but there's a few extra and longer lingering gore shots, some dialog changes with harsher profanity, and a few short extra scenes of story dialog.

Some people prefer the theatrical cut because they don't like the dialog changes. Both versions are included and it's got a better transfer than the previous Blu-ray. But fudge me, I wish it were actually available here.

I'm aware but he mentions 80s earlier, I Think he wants more 80s stuff than 90s stuff. 80s stuff stopped being cheesy in the 90s anyway. Razz

You dudes know if the Chuck Norris movie shown at 1:12 and 3:24 is Invasion U.S.A., or is it some other Norris flick(s) I gotta check out? I've been collecting horror movies so long (12 years or more) that I realize I want some action badassery now. One of my first DVDs that I ever bought was The Terminator, so it's like I'm returning to my roots or something.

I should probably also get that American Ninja box set 88 Films put out.

Yes

That's the only movie he looks like that, including Avenging Force

I think you meant Delta Force, DICK.
But now I have one more movie to add to the watchlist since Avenging Force is the American Ninja star and director duo.

Norris shoulda worn that white trash getup more often.

Apparently I gotta see the '80s Punisher. I thought I'd heard that was a shit movie, but give me guns and explosions and Dolph Lundgren and I'm creaming my shorts.

Avenging Force is the prequel to Invasion USA. Obviously its not that because that's Norris and not Dudikoff, but I didn't know if you knew it was re-cast
