Introducing….The Action Movie Project and Action Movie Mondays

LCD here, and I’m really pumped about this new project I’m working on. Let me tell you about it. If you listened to Episode 6 of the ReelFriction Podcast (and you really, really should have by now), you know that I have taken it upon myself to view and talk about the people who really got me into movies in the first place: the great action heroes of the 1980s.

District 9

District 9

District 9 was the tits! It was absolutely awesome. What’s this? A summer flick that has not only some sweet battle scenes, but also a plot (what the?) and a theme(gasp!)?!?! Don’t Peter Jackson and Neill Blomkamp realize that it’s just a movie and as long as a bunch of shit blows up, the viewer won’t care if the actual plot of the movie is otherwise a festering pile of shit riddled with holes?
