1. Die Hard
4. Universal Soldier
Job done. That took (at most) about 30 seconds to think of. The much harder challenge was to think of four films which would be perfect, but are lesser-known gems.
So here goes:
1. Judgement Night
Stephen Hopkins directs Emilio Estevez, Cuba Gooding Jr., Jeremy Piven and Dennis Leary in an action-packed 90 minutes in which a group of friends get lost on their way to fight, and see something they shouldn’t have done. Get the pizzas in.
Described as possibly the best single-location action film of all time (Can’t think of many others, so it may not be the greatest of compliments, come to think of it). Bill Paxton and Ice T star, I don’t think I need to say anymore. Beers in the fridge.
3. The Last Boy Scout
Pretty much universally panned on its release, which is why it isn’t as well known as (in my opinion), it should be. Bruce Willis and Damon Waynes star in this Shane Black-penned Tony Scott-directed action movie. Crisps at the ready.
4. Happy Gilmore
OK so probably not exactly unknown, but for my money the one of the funniest films ever made. Somebody call a taxi.
