   Though this is a series and not a movie I have to mention that female Martain marine, Gunny Sgt Bobbie Draper, from The Expanse.  I think I love her.

Clint Eastwood in the Man with no name movies. He was just so casual about it.

Also, Godzilla. No matter how many times he dies, he always comes back.

Godzilla is a great one.  He can whoop anything on earth other than King Kong and he's immune to nukes.  In fact they make him stronger.  Speaking of King Kong vs Godzilla, I saw the movie in the theater as a small child.  We went nuts during the fight when King Kong beat Godzilla's butt.  I read much later that in Japan the kids loved Godzilla and not King Kong.  There is actually a Japanese version of the movie where Godzilla wins.

The part about there  the being 2 endings is a myth. According to Toho, the ending was a draw. Let's see what the new version does.

marc dacascos in The botherhood of the wolf.

The opening fight scene is just brilliant.

Hell I'm a big marc dacascos fan anyway - just wish he'd done more pure martial arts films and not tried to be a proper actor Wink

And as for his part of Iron Chef - that's just embarrassing.
He is genuinely a world class martial artist.



Never seen anyone fight in full wet weather gear before or since.

Some of the fight scenes and stunts in Drive are worthy of jacky chan at his best.


what do you know the whole film is on youtube !

So obviously jacky chan - I mean that guys broken almost every bone in his body -  most more than once - doing his own stunts - if that isn't badass - I don't knoiw what is Smiley

Jack palance - pretty much his entire career was as a bad ass.



Possibly my second favourite ever line from any movie.

The best is from the culpepper cattle company:

A kid asks a cowboy what his horses name is, cowby spits and replies:
'son, ya don't give a name to sumthin' ya might haveta eat.'

dwayne johnson.
probably my number 1 choice to play jack reacher in a PROPER reacher film.

When the whole point of the character is that - in his own words - 'there's maybe 10 guys in the world I need to worry about in a fight'.
Basically he's a modern conan - not sure if that was deliberate on lee childs part or not - but yep jack reacher=conan.
A guy who will get involved in any malfeasance - simply because he KNOWS he's pretty much not in an real danger.

So who makes the first two - so called - 'reacher films ? Tom cruise.

If you've read the books - you probably haven't bothered watching the films - I know I haven't.
What's the point ? I'd just sit there shouting at the screen Smiley

That said - tom cruise has played some seriously bad ass dudes - and he also does a lot of his own stunts.
I mean not jacky chan level - but still pretty impressive for an actual movie superstar.

Jet li.
An actual official living national treasure of china and probably one of the finest martial artists to EVER walk the earth.

There is ONE on film fight between jet li and marc dacascos.
The choreography isn't great - which is a shame as it could have been one of the truly great film fights of all time.

marc does like fighting in the rain Smiley

Vinnie Jones
One of the hardest football players who ever reached the uk top flight football league.

he holds the record for the fastest booking ever.
Heard an interview with him last night, and he said he watched the ref start to blow the whistle and was moving before he did.
Can't remember exactly why he'd targeted the opposing player - but it was 100% intentional Smiley

Made some great films as well.


Although the Actual comib book juggernaut was NOT a mutant at all. he got his powers from an ancient god.
