Okay, gang, I couldn’t decide. Since I was running late with this due to being very busy this week (and by the way, we find out today if we all get furloughs where I work – joy of joys) … anyway action posed a bit of a problem for me. I’m not really into shoot-em-ups and Raiders of the Lost Ark had already been taken.
So I could not choose between two particular movies, so here they both are.
First: True Lies with Ahnold and Jamie Lee. With show stolen by Tom Arnold. We love this movie at my house. And plus, I absolutely WAS that bored legal secretary at one time until I met a British spy (well everyone thought he was a spy because he traveled so much) …
But then again, probably the earliest Action Film in my memory bank is this one – loved dearly by my dad and the family and I was always allowed to stay up to watch the very end. No one has ever been cooler than Steve McQueen as The Cooler King; and that handsome Okie, James Garner, is just divine in this movie – what a good looking man, eh? Here’s an interesting side note (or not): My great-grandfather ran against his grandfather for Cleveland County Commissioner once upon a time.
So here is The Great Escape – a fave fave fave of all time. And I will just say here that I almost went with “Bridge on the River Kwai” … but …. but…. how do you decide on these things?
