    Best Action Movie!

    Been following the thread "Name the Movie", and suddenly felt a strong urge for a new "BEST" thread!

    Best Action Movie! As I know we are (at least) 2 about it, I'll put this one first without further ado:
    - Die Hard

    Gah! I would have selected Die Hard as well! And I'd be willing to bet that Paulie will agree.

    Great selection, Modesty!

    I am going to say Towering Inferno because I just think they don't make movies like they used to. Okay so I am showing my age. So sue me. Although I did like the Jackie Chan movies I saw over the summer but I don't remember the names of the movies. Chris Rock I think was the costar and they were two police officers investigating a kidnapping of the daughter of a chinese diplomat. That was a good action movie!

    I'd have to also agree with Die Hard.

    Would Raider's of the Lost Ark qualify as Action?

    For some reason, "X-Men" was the first thing that came to mind...

    I'm not really into action movies, but if Clara is going for Towering Inferno (which I loved) I'm going to say The Poseidon Adventure.

    ... it was when I read in the "Name the Movie" thread and he mentioned that Die Hard was his top pick when I felt a need for this thread
    CB - the older the better, imo! If they've been around for a while, and you still think they are good, they probably are!
    Bill - have no idea, but I think "Raiders.." probably counts as action (as well as comedy...). I think it is a great action movie anyway! (But Die Hard is better... )
    Lobeck - X-Men, dunno.... actually, I don't think I saw it, but if you say so... the more the merrier

    Fluff! I always thought of The Poseidon Adventure as The Towering Inferno on a boat.

    OK - I have 3 more in my mind: what do you think about Lethal Weapon (I), Mad Max, and Alien (I)?

    I also loved the Poseidon Adventure. I cried my eyes out when Shelley Winters saved the preacher and then had a massive heart attack and they told her husband. I also liked the EarthQuake movie when that came out. I guess I like disaster movies. Alive was another disaster movie that I liked. Hey -I am on the wrong thread. I thought this was the Movie Game!
