35 second read

  • Doesn’t matter as long as it is in VHS format. That way I can unwind them and use the tape to somehow create a sail for sailing or to build a shelter of some sort…

  • First Blood
    Rambo: First Blood Part 2
    Rambo 3
    John Rambo

    • DieJason

      The best Predator movie by far is First Blood 😛

  • 5 action movies? Well I’m screwed, not exactly my favourite genre.

  • Tough to choose just 5 films given that I’d probably watch any action movie no matter how bad it is (in fact – sometimes the worse it is, the better it is). Here’s my list anyway though:

    Independence Day
    Die Hard
    Die Hard: With a Vengeance
    The Fifth Element
    Total Recall (the Arnie version)

  • Sir Captain Rincethis

    Ohhh, tough. Action covers to many genres.

    1. Old Boy
    2. The Raid
    3. Matrix (1!)

    4. Fith Element (I have already watched it enough times to be considered I have already lived on an island)
    5. Terminator 2

  • Die, Percy! Die

    Diehard 4.0, Sin City, Independence Day, The Transporter and A Few Brave Men(the one with mel gibson as a soldier, just stating in case I got the title wrong)
