Since the oscars were on last night I figured I'd hit you guys with some real cinema, Jean-Claude Van Dammes 1993 classic "Hard Target"
An absolute shout out to Richard Connells "The Most Dangerous Game" "HARD TARGET" is, in my opinion, a perfect terd. My love for this flick (outside the obvious) is its nostalgic value. Every time I stayed home sick from school I SWEAR Van Damme week was on, on either USA or TNT?? (The network escapes me) Regardless! I spent hours self medicating in various forms of martial arts and soothing cadence of Jean-Claude's accent. The concept was the first thing that nabbed me, and it came well before I'd even read Richard Connells interpretation, Humans hunting Humans? Fuck yeah. A few highlights.
1. the game of chicken where Van Damme surfs on a motorcycle and blows up a Bronco with a Pistol.
2. Fanning the hammer of a pistol (upside down) ending in a perfect roundhouse to send G.I. Buttholes cigar flying
3. The Snake Punch
4. The dude from the mummy
5. Uncle Douvee's single shot bow and arrow explosive chain reaction
Just a few to wet the whistle guys, but if you haven't visited Jean-Claude in a while I suggest you do
