just started it this morning but yes!!!!!!!!!! this is going to rule so glad its a long one. gonna make this day easier
Oh my! New episode about action movie heros, from Patrick and Fthismovie heavyweight Adam "The *****" Riske!?! I'm all in!
2 hour episode too! What a treat! Thanks Fthismovie.
Riske thinks Indiana is the south? Wat?
Haha. I was close to Kentucky if that makes it any better. Also, I suck at geography.
Is Raw Deal (1986) mentioned in this? One of the only Arnie flicks I’ve never seen.

Well this ranks in the top 3 Bromley/Riske joints along with Wishmaster and the hidden The Postman episode...You mention that Seagal should be in a film called Belly (a 1998 DMX movie I have yet to watch!) BUT he was in a film called Belly of the Beast from 2003 which is a) a perfect title for his current incarnation and b) on of his better DTV movies, thanks to direction by Ching Siu-tung (Naked Weapon, Swordsman trilogy)...Anyway gents keep up the excellent work!
ps. Also this got me thinking of action films that aren't particularly good BUT I have seen a whole bunch of times and the one that came to mind was... 1995's Fair Game starring the better Baldwin (because Alec and Stephen are just no good these days) Billy and Cindy Crawford! I now kind of want to watch it again...
I want to rewatch Fair Game now too.
It's so worth it
I watched both Hostage and The 6th Day last month, as I'm purging a lot of DVDs and want to know which are worth keeping....I think you guys made the right choice in not including these.
I love Command Performance. As soon as Dolph was mentioned that was the film that sprang to mind. "Dying is easy, rock and roll is hard."
I don't know what this says about me but listening to this was one of the best times I've had so far this year, pure joy.Except that, no dis on Fire Down Below, but On Deadly Ground is the best version of On Deadly Ground, and I will throw anyone that says different into a lake of oil.
No way is it better
I've calmed down a bit, and you're right, Fire is a better movie, and I do love it. But On Deadly Ground is still the most On Deadly Ground movie ever made, and I'll stand by that next to a lake of oil.

Great podcast this week gents! I loved that one of the actors was Jet Li, one of my all-time favorites. I definitely recommend checking out more of his Chinese films, most of which are fairly able to come by in the US, either on disc or streaming. I recommend Fearless and Fist of Legend as good places to start.
I remember liking Fearless but haven't seen it in a long time. Jet Li rules!
Around 2007 I rented and watched every Jet Li movie I could get my hands on, and Fearless was my favourite, and the only one I bought. I remember Kiss Of The Dragon being very good too.
Fearless is amazing. If you haven't seen it though I can't recommend Fist of Legend highly enough. It's flat out one of the best martial arts movies of all time. Dragon Dynasty put it out on blu, though they did the typical MiramAXE hatchet job on it.
Thirded on Fearless. Was hyped coming out of the theater for that one.
Man, that was a great episode. That could have gone on for 2 more hours and I would have been happy. Also, so you guys had me running to Amazon trying to buy so many of these that I realized I didn't actually own. I added so many of those "4 pack action" DVD collections to my cart haha.
So good guys, I loved this show! There are a ton of movies here I need to check out. Action blu rays tend to be cheap and I'm so tempted to buy them all.
i love movie
Great episode for action movie fans. I also have a soft spot for Jason Stathams Home Front.
Definitely added War and Safe to my list after listening. Shark Lake is terrible but completely watchable Dolph Lundgren movie that showed up on Netflix. My Stallone pick would be The Specialist with Sharon Stone. I know a lot wouldnt call it underrated, but i really like it. Plus Rod Steiger and Eric Roberts.
*wouldnt call it underrated bc most think it sucks, not because its a bih hit, just to clarify.
The specialist would have been my pick too. I’m not even sure what I like about it.
This episode was delightful from start to finish.
