An ex-commando's daughter is kidnapped in a ploy to have him help overthrow a foreign government, but this single father will instead fight to rescue her.
This is a movie that gets to the god damned point. It's full of tension and action, and every other line is memorable. It holds up exceptionally well, only being unsurprisingly limited by the lack of mobile phones in 1985.
I really hope you like steel drums.
A quirky and grating writer finds himself pulled into the lives of ordinary people.
A really great, well-rounded, unique movie, especially for guys, as it has a single moment of clarity that will help them understand women.
A centuries-old man is embroiled in a sword-fight between other immortals.
This is one of those movies which forged my young self, but I cannot recommend to others. It definitely feels dated, and I doubt its ideas would be particularly shaping to others compared to the other movies created since this one.
In a sense, you could also see Unbreakable - (2000 movie).
As part of a delaying tactic for an internal power struggle at the Central Intelligence Agency, an everyman is pointed out as a pawn to be followed as a delaying tactic.
A fantastic, classic, movie. It's simple and with a light tone. I don't think it's particularly recommendable now, but I still like it.
Two young losers somehow make a hot woman who has magical powers.
One of the fundamental parts of this movie involves some really terrifyingly-old technology. Even back then it was comical. If that can be excused, the rest of this holds up perfectly.
So with that out of the way, I can highly recommend this. I know my nostalgia must cloud my judgement, but I still think it would be a fun movie for a first-timer. It's bubblegum.
TODO - Watch the special features, there's a lot.
A cop's early investigation into a police fund theft has him killed, leaving his framed hostage-negotiator partner to use the only tool he has available to find the real killer.
A really great movie with a unique topic. Recommended.
An extended episode of Father Ted - (1995-1998 show).
It's as great/awful as the rest of the show. You will like this as much as the show.
A murder-mystery set around the intricacies of Japanese business culture.
A very good movie with a great theme and tone throughout.
Two priests, exiled to an island in the middle of nowhere in Ireland, try to make due.
A mid-1990s British comedy with a laugh track. If you aren't positive you can handle that, then pass. It has only a few moments, but is otherwise crap.
