Netflix Streaming: Jank (and not Jank) Action Films

I recently discovered Netflix streaming...it is pretty awesome though the temptation to veg out in front of my 360 is now huge.

My favorite about Netflix streaming is being able to watch janktastic action films. Right now the following are available and I highly recommend them:

  • 48 Hours (Remember when Eddie Murphay was awesome?)
  • Air Force One ("Get off my plane!" The Pres as an action hero is too good)
  • American Ninja (classic jank that spawned what, 4 sequels?)
  • Bad Boys (One of Michael Bay's most underrated movies.)
  • Broken Arrow (so bad it's good)
  • Cliffhanger (John Lithgow as a villain is too hilarious to me.)
  • Conan the Destroyer (Governator in an honestly terrible movie.)
  • Desperado (this is like the popular version of El Mariachi, more action, less style)
  • Executive Decision (Steven Segal's best role ever?)
  • Heat (this is a must watch film if you live in LA)
  • Never Back Down (A new classic, this film is so ridiculous in how over the top it is.)
  • The Rock (Probably my favorite Michael Bay film) Speed (Classic Keanu and probably the beginning of the over-the-top 90s films)
  • Robin Hood Prince of Thieves (Kevin Costner as Robin Hood is lol, it makes me wonder about the upcoming Russel Crowe version)
  • Sniper (the "legit" film before 2 jank sequels)
  • Universal Solider II (this one has Van Damme and Dolph Lundren together again there's apparently a 3rd film too lol)

I am thinking of starting "Binkley's Virtual Jank Action Film Nights" on Xbox Live so if you are interested message me on Twitter or email me.
