Bumping this to include "sex standing up" as discussed in mini episode 167.5. Feel free to add more to this ongoing list!

He's also kind of a really nice dude. I met him at a festival last year, and he was really polite to all the fans that wanted to chat with him. As part of the festival, they do a thing called "Fantastic Debates," where two people debate a movie-related topic and then box each other (the most well-known ones are Drafthouse Founder Tim League vs Keanu Reeves on whether or not Tai Chi is a "real martial art" and Elijah Wood vs Dominic Monaghan on whether or not World of Warcraft is cool).

Unfortunately, I haven't found any video from last year's debates yet, but it was between two Drafthouse employees on whether Raging Bull or Rocky IV was a better movie. Lundgren stood in the ring to be part of the Rocky IV side's crew. On the Raging Bull side, another guy ran around ran around waving an American flag and giving Lundgren the finger the whole time they were debating. Lundgren played it up like he was incredibly pissed about it. But afterwards, he was super nice and said it was some of the most fun he'd ever had.

Oh, I'm sure the Dolph is a good dude. He also happens to be very well-educated and probably extremely intelligent. I think he studied at MIT. He's just not someone whom I'd consider to be a solid foundation for a good movie. His delivery leaves a lot to be desired. I know English isn't his first language, but it wasn't Arnold's either. And look at how well he turned out!

He's great in Rocky IV, The Expendables 2, and Don't Kill It. There are far more apt actors to pin bad movies on than Dolph.

I haven't seen two of those films, but "great in Rocky IV" seems like a stretch. He has less than 10 lines and looks like very realistic wax figure when he's not throwing haymakers. I think there's a very low ceiling on his acting abilities. I agree he has some watchable performances, but nothing "great". Although to his credit, not all of his acting is as bad as what he put out in The Punisher, so he's at least a worthy candidate for Most Improved.

EDITED TO ADD: Come to think of it...why be ageist? Anytime any character raps in a movie, full stop. And, if somewhere in the course of the person's poorly busted rhyme they manage to drop their character's name, game fucking over! I can't think of a single instance where this ever came off as looking cool. My only caveat to this would be if the movie is specifically about someone becoming a rapper. If that's the case, I might give it a pass.


Maybe you just have issues with Hip Hop and Rapping in general. Is the "full stop" mean you stop watching the movie? Because, it depends on the quality of the rap and intention. Dig deeper. My friend.

That's not exactly what I said (2 years ago). "Full Stop" doesn't mean "stop watching the movie." "Full Stop" means "period." I also said in my final two sentences that if the movie is about rapping or hip hop, then it's fine. I'm saying, if you're watching a movie that has nothing to do with rapping, like, Hotel Transylvania, and Dracula starts rapping (which he does) then you're probably watching a bad movie,

I haven't gone back to check, but I think the rest of my post had to do with elderly people rapping for comedic effect. Again, the issue isn't with the rapping itself. The issue is, "look at this old person rap isn't that funny?"

But, I'll gladly withdrawal the point if you can give me a movie, that isn't about rapping or music in general, where a character starts rapping inexplicably and it comes off "cool."

But Hotel Transylvania is suprisingly decent...

Sorry if that was already mentioned. "Congo" and "Wicker Man" have ex-fiancés, to name a couple.

How about anytime someone has to film a follow up documentary attacking critics of his movie. Watched Heckler by Jamie Kennedy a few months back and was blown away at how quickly it went from an interesting discussion on hecklers in stand up comedy to Kennedy lamenting the fact that nobody "got" Malibus Most Wanted or Mask 2.

Ah, but that is not inexplicable. It's a rap concert!
