Nighthawks -- Underrated Sly
Out for Justice -- Action packed and funny (sometimes unintentionally so)
Running Scared -- Billy Crystal

Actually... the non-Billy Crystal Running Scared is pretty damned cool.

COMMANDO will always be one of my favorite guilty-pleasure action movies. It practically raises camp to an art form. And most of that's thanks to Vernon Wells as Bennett, the henchman with the chain mail vest and gay porn star mustache.

I'll add William Friedkin's The Hunted, with Tommy Lee Jones and Benicio Del Toro. It's worth seeing for the knife fights alone. Bonus: homemade shivs.

Note: Some of these movies are now available on HD, and or BluRay (or will be shortly depending on region).

Rewatching some of them... Like the original Die Hard... In 1080p... Is like watching a whole new movie again because of the detail that was left out in the standard DVD and sometimes VHS transfers. Also, the audio is even closer to the actual theatrical experience (broader; more bass) than a lot of the DVD and VHS transfers too.

I remember seeing that on VHS for the first time, and I kept thinking he looked very, very familiar - the it hit me, Road Warrior! and we all had a big laugh at his newer, rounder, even-gayer look.
