Kurt Russell

Born March 17, 1951

Damn, I love Kurt Russell. He is one of my favorite actors. I don’t know that I have seen everything he is in but it is not for lack of trying. Below is a very brief recount of some of my favs.

Noteworthy

  • Escape from New York – 80s action movie gold. Russell is Snake Plissken and he is going into New York, which is now a prison, to save the president. So good!
  • Big Trouble in Little China – At least once a year, I have to watch this movie. I love it. It is part of my childhood. Again, 80s action movie gold. If there is part of this short list you have not seen this is the one to start with.
  • Tango & Cash – Good cop, bad cop. Rich cop, poor cop. They get to the same end they just get there in different ways. Russell and Stallone are out of this world.
  • Death Proof – I could not resist throwing in a Tarantino. Russell is Stuntman Mike and he chose poorly for his second set of targets to continue his serial killing ways.

I was brought up by two people who just said, Whatever it is you’re interested in, go do it. There is no winning or losing. You find out when you do it what the experience is.

Tone Loc

Tone Loc Born March 3, 1966   Tone Loc was one of those iconic entertainers from my youth that I will never forget. His musical stylings fit the MTV generation that I grew up in and his beats are still rolling around in my head. Noteworthy Wild Thing & Funky...

Martin Short

Martin Short Born March 26, 1950   I LOVE Martin Short. Noteworthy Three Amigos - One of my all-time favorite comedies. Short plays Ned, one of the Amigos. His physicality, wit, and delivery are all top notch in this movie. Comedy perfection. Innerspace -...

DL Hughley

DL Hughley Born March 6, 1963   DL Hughley first dropped onto my radar when he was part of the Original Kings of Comedy. I had probably seen him before that but this was my first exposure to his style of comedy, his perspective, and his brilliant mind....
