Gratuitous Llama Movie Review

I readily bow down before Steve-O regarding all things Kurt Russell, so I am interested to hear his take on Executive Decision, which was running on WGN (or whatever it is) this evening.

For myself, I've always found this flick to be one of those that, if you stumble across it while channel-surfing, is what you might call default-worthy, something worth watching if you can't find anything better.

For one thing, Steven Segal gets waxed fairly early on. That's got to be a good thing.

For another, I am eternally amused by David Suchet as the fanatical Islamofacist. In all seriousness, I love his portrayal of Hercule Poroit in the Mystery series, and to me something like this screams "I needed the money!" loud and clear.

For yet another, I do believe that the F-14 wing leader is the same actor who played the Black Knight pilot who slammed headlong into the alien ship force field in Independence Day. I know everyone else on the planet blanches at the plagiaristic abominations of that movie, but I still enjoy it none the less. To think that someone in Hollywood is getting type-cast as a fighter jockey is, to me, very funny indeed.

Of course, then there's always Halle Barry......

Anyhoo, tell us, oh Grand Master of Russelldom, how shall we contemplate this particular manifestation of his image?

Don't know about Executive Decision, but always loved Big Trouble in Little China, which I could swear reading somewhere was one of President Bush's favorite movies.

The hell with Halle Barry but she played a great part and her eyes were expressive. As for Kurt Russell - LOVE HIM TO DEATH. Love Executive Decision AND Independence Day - own them both - watch them often. Great movies and I love how they get rid of Steven Segal right away. heheheheh


It's fun here, you people are nuts. Me? I'm the llama owner - should be having a baby anyday.
