We're normal now.
We love your family.


The Action Boyz podcast recently covered the original Universal Soldier. One of the hosts said "I remember watching this as a kid and just feeling sad," which I laughed at a lot because that's how I felt watching it for the first time as an adult. It's such a mess of a movie. That opening Vietnam flashback really starts things off on a very dark note, and then the rest of the movie can't decide what it wants to be. In any case, it feels like it probably started as a pretty straightforward action film until somebody in the production read a copy of J.J. Abrams' Forever Young script (And/or the Encino Man script) and said "We need more fund man-out-of-time stuff with Van Damme...like a LOT more."

Plus the logistics of the UniSols are all over the place - are they cyborgs, or are they just biologically enhanced? If they're not cyborgs, why do they make whrr-whrr-zppp-zppp robot noises so much? Is that entirely from the 8 pound MiniDV rig strapped to the side of their heads?


Oh my God

Not sure what's better, the fact that nobody at this hospital has a neck or the terrible ADR quips
