Last Action Hero (1993) features the can’t fail trio of screenwriter Shane Black, director John McTiernan and action star Arnold Schwarzenegger. And they blew it. To most people anyway. Looking back now on this action parody, is it really as lousy as people think?

Excessive Force 2: Force on Force (1995) is an in-name only sequel to a film even we don’t remember.

Some of that bullet is still there, which causes problems for her at the worst possible times.

Another truncated second half this week, but we still sneak in some further thoughts on Deadwood, Good Omens and The Lego Movie 2. Enjoy!

Tank (1984) is not the murder revenge fantasy it needs to be, but it’s still the tale of an Army Sergeant Major (James Garner) wrecking the state of Georgia in a tank because the local law is corrupt. Earnest, sincere and a lot of fun. Also, strangely relevant?

A Force of One (1979) brings us our earliest Chuck Norris film to date, and one where he’s merely a co-star at that. A ninja is killing cops and so the cops decide that in order to fight karate, you must become karate or something. Norris kicks dudes.

In the second half there is no second half. Enjoy!

The Park is Mine (1985) tells the story of a Vietnam vet (Tommy Lee Jones) who somewhat randomly is coerced into taking control of Central Park in New York City for 72 hours. Yaphet Kotto is one of the men in charge trying to get him out. This first movie made for HBO has some interesting ideas, and so do we. Come listen to them!
