The Running Man – man-hunting action and great one-liners from the ’80’s

Video coming soon!

The Running Man is still a lot of fun. Campy at times, but good stalker killing action, Schwarzenegger and Maria Conchita Alonso and a dystopian future make for a great watch. Plus, without this movie we would’ve never gotten, “Here is Sub Zero. Now… PLAIN Zero”. Schwarzenegger one-liners for the win!

SPOILER ALERT!  Watch the movie before proceeding.

Life Lessons Learned from The Running Man

Dusty: Use a stick and poke him in the eye. 

  • Never get close to a bad guy laying on the ground. And Dusty does this same thing (like Homer Simpson) and pokes his shot deer in the eye.

The perfect prop to take away from The Running Man… Arnie’s Hawaiian duds!

Sky: Nobody likes a liar. 

  • Everyone seemed to like Killian as the show host. He was up there telling everyone he loves them, smooching gilf’s and pretending to be a good guy giving convicts a fair chance. But, as soon as he was exposed as a fraud, everyone turned on him and enjoyed his death.

Iconic stalkers Fireball, Buzzsaw, Dynamo and Sky’s favorite, Subzero.

Sky: Being exasperating may help you get beyond authority. 

  • The Hawaii-bound ticketing agent let Richards and Amber through because he was holding up the line. Sky got out of a speeding ticket once because the cop was frustrated that he couldn’t produce his registration which was trapped in an unforgiving glove box.

Dusty: Don’t be a hypocrite and a jerk like Killian.

  • Another example: the cancelled tyrant named DeGeneres.

I blame his jerk-ass parents. What do you expect your kid to turn into when you name him Damon Killian?!

Commando Movie Review – The Ultimate ’80’s Action Movie (1985)

Commando is Schwarzenegger at his action ’80’s best! He’s a killing machine as works his way through mercenaries and an entire army in an effort to save his daughter. He also prevents an evil military coup in the process. We love it!

SPOILER ALERT!  Watch the movie before proceeding.

Life Lessons Learned from Commando

Dusty: Have guns everywhere.

  • You gotta protect yourself, especially if you’ve developed loads of enemies like being the hero of a revolution.

The early father-daughter montage really showed Matrix’s love for Jenny (Alyssa Milano).

Sky: Let sleeping dogs lie.

  • Matrix is the best of the best, so why the heck are you getting him involved?! He would’ve never defeated the army and prevented the military coup if they didn’t kidnap his daughter. Dumbass ’80’s villain.

Rae Dawn Chong as Cindy was great in this movie. Shooting rockets, flying plains and comedic moments?! Give me more RDC!

Dusty:  Never quit.

  • Matrix would stop at nothing to save his daughter Jenny. And even Jenny decided to try and escape when she stopped feeling sorry for herself.

A dad-bod doesn’t make for a worthy Schwarzenegger adversary.
