Movie Action of ’91

This year has been much more of a movie buying one than that for games. 15 so far is a testament to that. In fact, let’s go ahead and add three more.

Outside of Bloodsport, Timecop, and Street Fighter, there’s few Jean-Claude Van Damme movies I find myself going back to. However, Double Impact is one of them. There might be another here or there, but I just maybe not remembering it at this moment. One thing is for sure, though. This movie should’ve had the following tagline.

Double the action.
Double the excitement.
Double Van Damme.
It’s Double Impact!

Dude, they really missed out. :D

Another 1991 joyride is Point Break, brah. After being named after a US state little Johnny Utah works undercover as an F.B.I. Agent! Ain’t it wild?


I was also able to get Rambo, you know, the fourth film. This is the 2010 release called the Extended Cut. Sadly that extension is only an extra eight minutes. That’s not what I call great since it chucks out the commentary track to get those few extra minutes. It’s not worth it to me. I’ll probably be looking for the 2008 Blu-ray release as a replacement.

Finally, Blades of Time was the one game I picked up. This is the “sequel” to X-Blades. Better, but not great, this game was produced by Konami’s own Master of Extreme, Tak Fujii. It looked interesting at the time and thanks to ebbderelict’s review I decided to go for it.

  1. Okay, it’s time I come clean. *deep breath* I… have never watched…. Point Break. I know… I know. And I didn’t even realize how big of a movie this was until this past year, and now it seems to have shown up in multiple places with praise. I guess I’ll have to keep an eye out for it.

    Rambo! I like how on the cover they have to point out that it’s the 4th movie, since the titling in that series is all screwed up.

    I hope my review of Blades of Time doesn’t let you down!
