:lol:

But yeah, he was all about the stunts. Some of that stuff was simply insane. And while I've cooled on him as an adult, I used to love seeing him on tv and in my movies back in the day.

Funny thing is that in France they went bonkers with some of Norris's line while dubbing it, so some quote are completly different and became cult as result. Here, the dubbed version went with:

" If you come back again, you gonna end up with you're cock in a tupperware".

Another quote from Missing in Action III which was:

"Littlejohn: Braddock! I'm warning you, don't step on any toes.
Col. James Braddock: I don't step on toes, Littlejohn, I step on necks."

Became:

"Littlejohn: Braddock! I'm warning you, don't step on any toes.
Col. James Braddock: I put my toes wherever I want Littlejohn, and it's often on people's face ."

I still really enjoy watching him. It's like you've said before, you have to separate art from the artist.

Watching Never Give Up got me thinking that it could use a Kain's Quest or just something else from Takakura's career such as The Yakuza or Black Rain

I think it would be an interesting quest, for sure, to do some Ken Takakura stuff. He's been in a lot of stuff I've loved, but I haven't gone after his movies like I should. I'll look into this. Thanks for the suggestion!

May I be the first to heap praise on you for the Terminator video Kain. It may have been long but didn't lose my interest for a second and drew my attention to near-subliminal details I'd never even considered. I think you may have just painted your masterpiece.

Having said all that I can't thank you at all for making me realise that I've probably never seen the film with the original audio ;)

Thank you very much!

But yeah, it's absolutely awful what they did with the audio of that film. I may be a bit biased, but I really do consider The Terminator to be one of (if not THE) most important films of the 80s. So it's an honest shame we can't watch it in its original form. Well, at least not without grabbing up an old VHS.

Wow, Kain, you should really write a book on action movies or something. You really know your stuff. Incredible video. I also prefer T1 to T2 and I'm glad Westworld was featured in the vid. Keep up the top-notch work!

Thanks. My hope is that people can learn a bit from these and be entertained. I'm a big fan of the video essay format, and I love fan-made documentaries, so it's cool to contribute to the scene.

This Terminator episode was great.

I think I disagree on T2, but it may be a generational thing; Judgment Day is considered to be the best movie ever for a generation of people. T2 might be an unecessary sequel, but any sequel would have been an unecessary one; apart from something like Salvation done good. T2 was the best thing which happened or could have happened to the franchise (three bad sequels and a bad tv series are proof enough I guess).

I also gotta wonder why the tecnoir genre didn't spawn more good movies; but it might be because the Terminator is the best incarnation of the genre. This video made we wish for another definitive masterpiece of tecnoir. I think the thing that the Terminator did that no other movies of the same type (scifi, noir, action oriented) has ever done is the sense of constent dread and being in an inescapable nightmare against an iconic antagonist (except for the original Westworld which heavily inspired The Terminator anyways). That sense of dread was the thing that struck me the most as a kid when I first watched it.
