Title: Cheesiest B-movie Action Star
Post by: aneel on September 24, 2006, 08:55:40 AM
So who do you think is the cheesiest B-action movie star?

I'd have to say Van Damme; his action scenes are always the most exaggerated (c'mon, triple replays?).  Also, he somehow incorporates 180 degree splits into every movie, and at some point he always yells "NOOOOOOO!!!!!" at eardrum-bursting intensity.  He's responsible for such masterpieces as "Blood Sport," "Kickboxer," and "Street Fighter: The Movie."

Dropped Vin Diesel; he doesn't classify as a B-star because all of his movies are big budget pictures.  Replaced with Dolph Lundgren.

To me the Cheesiest action star is a tie between Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme. But it would be great if Mike did Chuck Norris's Delta Force or Top Dog. This might go into the "Late Night Host Guest Riffer" Thing. But if they do a Chuck Norris movie. It would be cool if they got Conan to Guest Riff. I mean he is a big Chuck Norris fan.

Chuck Norris. If you had an '80's cartoon with your "Karate Commandos" and that cartoon was made by Hanna Barbara, then you deserve the Cheese hat. :^)

I just remembered Dolph Lundgren, our favorite Swede! His movies are on par in terms of cheesiness, although he may not be as well known an actor despite that fact that the guy makes dozens of B-action flicks.  I like him better than Van Damme, although Van Damme's movies are cheesier.

  I voted for Seagal, just because of those hideous Asian-style jackets he always wears. Check out the pictures of his imdb page.

Is it just me or dose every (non-movie) picture of Steven Seagal. He Look like hes either stoned, spaced out, or about to kick some ass.

I was saw a "Making Of" special on Walker: Texas Ranger --

The funniest moment was when the director was suggesting how enormously innovative was the chase scene they were filming:  "Other shows give you car chases.  We've all seen a car chasing a car.  But how about this:  a helicopter chasing a car?"

I'm gonna go with Seagal purely for the unbelievable dialogue and one-liners that get past the editing table in his movies. Although I think his fight scenes are a tad more realistic than his collegues on the list.



from "Hard to Kill":

Senator Vernon Trent: And you can take that to the Bank!
Mason Storm (Seagal): I'm gonna take you to the bank Senator Trent    [pause]    The blood bank.  [DUHN DUHN DUUUUUHNN]
