But I saw Tango and Cash when I was a senior in high school with one of my best friends, and we loved it. It might just be nostalgia, but if this movie is ever on TV, I tend to watch it. I can't help myself. The bad guy is ridiculous and the plot is awful. But Kurt Russel is really great American actor and Sylvester Stallone was THE star of the 80's.
But It Is Really Bad!
The plot of the film follows college professor Ira Kane (David Duchovny) and geologist Harry Block (Orlando Jones) who investigate a meteor crash. They discover that the meteor is harboring extraterrestrial life which is evolving very quickly into large, diverse and outlandish creatures. Good times ensue!
Plus you get to see a young Seann William Scott, who was our neighbor at the time.
It's a Christian-based comedy romance film about four teenage(ish) guys on a roadtrip that they have been planning their whole lives. Their dreams are to participate in as many extreme sports as possible. And they do! Its a really bad movie, but it does have a blue flame scene, so there's that. You can watch it here. Another great thing is that it stars Rufio from Hook. Classic youth group movie!
The most memorable line = Warriors, come out to play! Here's that scene. Enough said.
But in the 80's, when people were first getting cable TV, this film was on all of the time. It was a staple of my group of friends. Remo could even walk on water - so Jesus wasn't the only one =)
She is right, it is really bad, but her generation (mostly girls) really loves this film. Years ago she even made me sit down and watch it with her. It is about a father/daughter relationship that does pull on your heart strings a bit... especially for a sappy dad like me. So it does belong on the list. Plus it is pre-struggle Amanda Bynes.
Now, I've only met one other person who has mentioned seeing this movie, and she loved it and of course we became instant friends. She told me that she showed it to her husband and he hated it. Well, of course he did, it's an awful movie. But if you saw it as a kid like I did, you'd have really enjoyed it. Actually, my daughter is a fan. I'm raising her right. Here's a quote, only true fans will know, "A double? Nobody has a double!"
But what movies do you think belong on the list?
