Commando ★★★★★

my go-to movie when i was at home sick from school as a kid. now that im an adult there's so much more to appreciate here that i didnt think about all those years ago: this movie just breezes by, its the coolest 90 minutes 80s action has to offer that never overstays its welcome, and i love this whole sun-kissed feel the photography has. its also my favorite showcase of schwarzenegger being this unstoppable force of physicality and performance out of any of his films (matrixs' introduction scene carrying the tree trunk is unimpeachable - i have a theory that it was direct inspiration for the opening scene of 2018's God of War).
