    JCVD (2008)

    I just rented this movie and was stunned at how amazing it was. I found it moving, funny, unique, superbly acted ( JC gives the performance of a lifetime and puts all action heroes to shame ) and brilliant in all other departments. It may or may not have to do with Van Damme being my childhood hero.
    What interests me is how much is autobiographical, i know alot is ad-libbed but still, it could've really benefited from an audio commentary.

    With that said, everyone should watch this movie, me, i'm gonna go and rent me a few more new JCVD flicks cause i heard they're pretty good.

    Of his new ones, I`d highly recommend Wake of Death and, especially, The Hard Corps. The latter reminded me of the kind of late `80s action flicks I used to love when I was a kid.

    In Hell is one of his best. He should re-team with Ringo Lam. He also has a new movie that he directed, it got some good reviews too so i'm excited for it in addition to being a villain in the upcoming The Expendables 2.

    Now i'm off for a JC double feature, Hard Target ( a classic ) and Until Death ( never seen it ).
