Along with caffeine and a bunch of other substances not worth a mention here, action movies run through our veins. When we are not writing or watching them, we talk about writing about them and watching them. Usually, with one another on the Really Awful Movies Podcast.
However, we recently expanded our reach by chatting with Dax, the gent behind the Facebook group Killer B Movies. He’s also author of Attack of the Killer B’s! Your Guide to the Best of the Worst Films Ever Made.
One of us from the Really Awful Movies team (Christopher) held a Skype summit recently with Dax, to discuss the wonderful world of action cinema. That means lots and lots of Cannon, exploding helicopters, elaborate Dojo montages, monosyllabic grunting, warehouse shootouts and villains holed up in island compounds, alongside a healthy portion of Philippines-lenses rip-offs and a dollop of ninja flicks.
Join us as we chat about the genesis of our book, Mine’s Bigger Than Yours! The 100 Wackiest Action Movies (foreword: Brian Trenchard Smith, director of Stuntrock and Strike of the Panther).
