Most worthy for October 18th:
Jean-Claude Van Damme (51)
George C. Scott (would be 84)
Klaus Kinski (would be 85)
Alright, first up is Jean-Claude Van Damme. He's still around and kicking, that's for sure. But I'd like to bring you back to 1991, and more specifically, Double Impact. It's a ridiculous movie, but it's also hilarious.
Personally, I'd say the karate class gets a day off.
A big surprise isn't huge enough.
I always loved Bolo Yeung.
Damn, it's been a while since I've watched Double Impact, but it looks like the hilarity still holds up. Good to know.
Next up is George C. Scott. The clip I'll use for this is from a 1979 movie called Hardcore. I even reviewed it a while ago. Scott plays a religious father trying to track down his daughter who ran away to do, you guessed it, porn. It's a good movie.
Here, Scott follows clues as to his daughter's possible whereabouts.
You don't want an angry George C. Scott busting through the wall like a crazed Kool-Aid Man. You just don't.
Last, but most definitely not least, we have Klaus Kinski. He was a really crazy guy, so I figure why not show him being crazy? This is from My Best Fiend, which is a documentary by Werner Herzog. It basically chronicles the relationship the two filmmakers had with each other.
Herzog is always calm and collected. Yes, even in the face of shit like this.
That about does it for today's birthdays. It's been a pretty good day.
