I haven’t laughed this hard in a very long time.
Mark L. Lester, the director of such classics like Roller Boogie and Showdown in Little Tokyo, makes a great case in this article that Commando, the 1985 Arnold Schwarzenegger action-fest, was the greatest film of all time.
Snip from the article:
The sequence that follows – with wonderful flute and string accompaniment, I might add – puts any expository opening credits to shame. We see how much Matrix cares about Jenny because he lets her smash ice cream into his face. While developing the backstory for Matrix, Arnold and I decided that in his past, Matrix once was the victim of ice cream to the face by a Russian spy, and carved out his trangressor’s heart with a hunting knife. So, it takes an immense amount of love for Matrix to not do the same to Jenny, even though she’s only playing. That’s character development.
