    Last Action Hero is kinda underrated IMO.

    It's scary how often Mr. BF and I find occasion to say, "Battery, Aziz."

    I can't remember the name, but there's a Youtube channel that analyzes or has analyzed a few action movies and counted how many times the hero should be dead and his numerous injuries before he died. They did, at least, the entire Die Hard series. It's pretty funny.

    Smart baddies, knowing the good guy is on the loose, actually take steps to ensure he can't defuse the bomb. Nice.

    One of my favourite line readings of all time is Arnie's gleeful, " 'Kay. Byee!" when Helen tells him to go work.

    It's such cheesy gold. Tom Arnold is even awesome.

    Okay, Spanish got boring fast.

    Stay up all night and hang out with me. I'll shrug of adulting and we can hang out together.

    It's the setting on your TV for Spanish dubbing.

    Haven't you ever been in a hotel room with an unfamiliar remote and gotten your TV stuck in Spanish?

    Just me then...

    Ah, gotcha. Can't say that's ever happened to me. (I did get my phone stuck on Korean once, though...)

    My main recurring drama with hotel TVs is when they're set to the wrong aspect-ratio. The picture shouldn't look all tall-and-stretchy or squashed-and-stumpy, hotel people! It's not that hard!!
