Last Action Hero- on of the few films I snuck into when it was playing in theaters & then snuck out of before it was half-way over. *raises hand* I swear I will not watch any more Arnold films ever again.

I think I'd hate to live in your world, WyreWizard.  Just like Mudville, there is no joy in your world.  Movies like The Last Action Hero are not meant to be realistic.  In fact, when you get right down to it, no movie is realistic.

Vampires do not exist.

Interstellar travel does not exist.

Aliens do not exist.

Bruce Willis/Brad Pitt/The Rock are not bulletproof.

Realism comes from life and movies are designed to allow you to escape life for a few hours.

Oh no?  Try telling that to the people that live in Louisiana who call themselves vampires and drink blood.

The trouble with that is some people stay in that fantasy even when the movie ends.  It also bothers me when the movies show a future that will never be possible, giving people false hope.  A movie can tell a good story without going into unrealistic flights of fancy.

Boy, I love it when somebody new shows up griping about how unrealistic some movie is,

Dude, haven't you ever read any of the reviews or discussion here? We revel in the unrealistic, the crappy, the stupid, the trashy, and sometimes the quite undescribably bad.

I love just about all of Arnold's movies except the comedies. Last Action Hero was made as a farce and as far as explosions in movies, all of them are fake as hell.  They use a lot of gasoline in film explosions because the big fireball is so "dramatic". Guess what when you blow something up with dynamite or C4, guess what? It blows up slinging debris everywhere (including body parts).

You should lay off the caffeine kid.

And how many explosions have you seen actually have fireballs?  One of the worst explosions I ever saw happened in Nevada.  That one didn't even have a fireball.  Its most dramatic feature was a shockwave that traveled along the ground and was visible.  It was the explosion of a storage facility for rocket fuel.  It would be nice to see movies have such a devastating explosion.  The miracle of that one explosion was it didn't happen in a city block.  Because of the volatile nature of the chemicals it stored, it was built in the middle of the desert.  It seemed its architects were really thinking ahead.

A little OT-(actually,alot) Does anybody remember the name of the movie with Arnold as a goodguy cowboy and Kirk Douglas as a villian? It was almost like a Road Runner cartoon come to life.This is starting to bug me now!

Me, I actually enjoyed the first half of the movie, but once they got into "reality" the movie kind loses it's momentum.  

As for the nitpicks, well, the first two you could argue occur because they take place in the "movie" side of the world, where the strict laws of reality don't apply.  As for the third, well, it IS New York, people might be used to other people shooting others with guns... ;)

Arnold's name was Handsome Stranger and his job was to escort Ann Margaret to collect an inheritance. Kirk's name was Cactus Jack and he was hired to stop them.

Dude, really, you are still missing the point.

Last Action Hero = fiction + bad movie.

Explosion of a storage facility for rocket fuel in Nevada = (allegedly) fact + reality.

Now, if this forum were on www.reality.com, or www.facts.com.au, or even www.therealways**tblowsup.com, then maybe you might get someone to agree with you.  But this is www.badmovies.org, and we really don't care how things work in reality.  You aren't going to win in here.

Maybe someone needs to make a movie about these people on an internet forum who flame this guy mercilessly for being silly, and he blows up from all the flaming.  Care to explain why that could not happen in real life?  Just be glad.

"The Villain." I saw that one when it was first released to theaters. Arnold was particularly painful in it, but I think I saw it more for the supporting cast, which included Paul Lynde, Foster Brooks, Ruth Buzzi, Jack Elam, Strother Martin, Robert Tessier, and Mel Tillis.

Hey WyreWizard - What about stuff like 'The Day After'? It's the middle of 2006 and we still haven't had a nuclear holocaust. By all accounts of movies of that type, we should have had one over 20 years ago. What do you think about that?
