Me's Guilty Pleasure #1: Commando

If I am famous for one thing (at least in my mind) is the fact that I do go commando once in a while, just for fun. Top commando. There is something liberating and really peace and love about it... Besides it's funny to see men distracted. Hillarious.

But this is not a post about neglecting to put on a bra. This is a post about one Guilty Pleasure that I have and... I am not ashamed to say it with pride. I love Commando. Love it, love it. Everytime they show it anywhere, I have to finish it.

First of all? Arnold at his best. Screw Terminator. In this one he has to talk. No acting skills whatsoever needed. Best scene? Too many to count. How about he escapes a plane when it's just starting to take off... and survives without a scratch??? The fight with the Vernon Wells (leather and chains bad guy?). OOOh. Oscar winner in my book. How about the fact that this man kills every human being on site while being shot from every angle and not a bullet hole in his body? Just one man can do the trick... and he's wearing PLEATHER??? Come on...

Oh, and Rae Dawn Chong as the chick who helps him? Rae Dawn Chong?????? No acting skills, again... perfect. Alissa Mylano? Um. Need I say more?

There is a very interesting way that this movie sucks ass, and dammit if they showed it on a movie theater I would gladly pay whatever they ask to see it on the big screen again. Besides. Commando was shot during a time when gore was king. They don't make them like this now.

I don't know if Arnold is doing a good job in Cali. But I know he delivered the goods on Commando. And now, for your viewing pleasure... the last fight. Oh. Next guilty pleasure? Cobra. Yes. Cobra. How much did I love it? Let's just say that I always have wanted to cut pizza with a scissor...

Guns are for pussies. Nothing beats the saw blade frisbee throw.

I'm surprised the one liner for that scene wasn't. "What a buzz."

I'm more of a "Predator" man myself...

Best Arnold line ever.
