    I was losing faith in humanity. lol I see it now. (it was a short post so I must have scanned too quick)

    Speaking of which, I hear there's a Rambo re-boot coming. No Stallone. I expect it to be terrible. Also a TV series (following his son). That has a small chance of not sucking.

    Jason Statham is definitely one of my current favorite action actors. I've never seen him and not enjoyed the role he played. I'm not sure he if quite falls into the guilty pleasure category (he's better than that imo) but I would put Jean Claude VanDamme in that role.

    Speaking of, have you guys seen that Amazon pilot with JCVD a few months ago? It was stellar and I hope they do a full season. :rock:

    Weridly, Seagal is ace for me too. Under siege, The Glimmer Man, great films imo.

    Also, not sure if these have been mentioned but...

    The Siege (Denzel) 1998
    Speed (Keano) 1994
    Enemy of the State (Will Smith) 1998
    Face Off (Travolta/Cage) 1997
    Point Break (Swayze) 1991
    Bad Boys (Smith/Lawrence) 1995
    Broken Arrow (Travolta/Slater) 1996


    There's more films that I would have mentioned but they've either been mentioned already or they're just outside of the 90s bracket. Good times.

    I want to mention 'Demolition man'.

    Probably not an action movie but I like it a lot - 'Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels'.

    Also I adore 'Down periscope'. Being a comedy it nevertheless shows some cool Navy action.

    Btw, is 'Pulp fiction' an action movie?

    Hey, what about 'Top gun' and 'Mission: Impossible'?

    'Top gun' unavoidably reminded about 'Hot shots!'...

    Independence Day is kind of special to me:

    It was the first movie I watched in a high quality cinema. In Indonesia Bioskop 21 was the only high quality cinema chain back then. I used to watch Chinese movies in local cinemas that were poorly maintained, with very low quality film roll (with scratches everywhere). So when I watched ID4 I was blown away by the clearness of the image and sound. It was also the first time I heard surround sound. I was simply amazed.

    All the classics before ID4 I watched them on TV or DVD.
