Question of the Day: JCVD’s best?

I was confronted with a question today…What is the best Jean-Claude Van Damme movie? I should laugh it off. It’s not a serious question. Yet, I’m intrigued with the answer. Is it:

  1. “Hard Target” – Directed by John Woo, it is easily the best directed JCVD movie.
  2. “Bloodsport” – The one that really started the JCVD phenomena. I still remember my dad telling me I *had* to watch it.
  3. “Timecop” – the only movie he ever did with an actual plot.
  4. “JCVD” – the meta movie.

Or another? Are you a big “Death Warrant” fan? Do you think “Sudden Impact” is the best “Die Hard” rip off, and thus deserving the Best JCVD award?

What is the best JCVD movie???


Movie Quote Monday

Oh the weather outside is frightful…unless you live in Central Florida, in which case it is a pretty perfect 80 and sunny. But, the rest of the nation is getting ready for the Christmas time – so we here at Sweep-the-Leg are too. We’re placing our Leg Lamp in the Window and decorating our house with enough lights to make Clark Griswold envious. We’re also watching Christmas movies. See if you can guess our theme for the month of December…

Now I have a Machine Gun. Ho. Ho. Ho.

You know the rules – add more quotes to the comments below. Merry Christmas to All, and to all a Good Night!

Friday Diversion: Die Harderest

Here at Sweep-the-Leg we know that work time is precious. A time to put your head down and get be productive. Work harder, get ahead. Well…then there’s Friday afternoon. We all need a diversion on Friday afternoons. Today’s diversion…My wife knows I’m a true romantic at heart. I even have our Valentine’s Day date for next year planned out. What a better time/event/occasion to unleash the fourth sequel to the greatest Christmas movie ever told?  I give you the first trailer for “A Good Day to DIE HARD.”

OK, so some thoughts on this…This looks more like “Live Free or Die Hard” than “Die Hard.” And Bruce Willis is mugging for the camera waaaay too much (hell, even the still the clip above freezes on). Both of those sadden me a bit, but I can deal with it.

The thing that I really like? Like more than anything? The coolest thing about this trailer that makes this movie worth existing? Turning “Ode to Joy” into a fracking ACTION THEME SONG! Seriously, how cool is that?
