    That and Ransom are 2 of his better one off action movies.

    Looking through his IMDb, he's had a pretty long run as an action star. Even stuff like Conspiracy Theory with Julia Roberts is not a bad cable watch. More recent stuff like Get the Gringo and Dragged Across Concrete. Could even throw Maverick in there.

    He's had an impressive career.

    It's a damn shame that's for sure.

    hahahah the crappy 90's quotes that show our age when you are around others. It is truly a good sign of who is my friend and who is not. It's like dropping Tommy Boy/Black Sheep/Happy Gilmore/Billy Madison etc. type quotes for situations and see who picks up on them.

    The Running Man is so underrated.

    -Great dystopian setting
    -Awesomely bad one liners
    -Richard Dawson as the host
    -Jim brown with a jet pack and a flamethrower.
    -Some dude with a motorcycle and a chainsaw
    -Jessie Ventura
    -Fat opera singer with a led go cart
    -Samurai hockey player

    Then when it can't get any better Mick Fleetwood is running some sort of underground synth rebellion.

    I was thinking about re-watching Ransom the other day when a song from the score popped up while listening to my best of Smashing Pumpkins/Billy Corgan playlist on shuffle.

    Gibson is a really under the radar one. I actually tried to watch any of his movies without even realizing it.

    Yeah, he has had a lot of great movies, some that I still need to see. Edge Of Darkness was another one I really enjoyed.

    I haven't seen that movie in a long time, but I remember watching it a lot when it came out in my childhood years. For some reason every time I am ready to cut a pizza I have the urge to cut it with scissors while wearing leather gloves. I think about that scene almost every time because it is so ridiculous, yet awesome at the same time.

    that movie is sooooo good.

    Obviously Lethal Weapon and perhaps Mad Max (not a huge fan) give him a mention here. Martin Riggs is an awesome character.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    Too many great action stars. My favorite is Matt Damon. Bourne Franchise is too classic.
