As much as I like Face/Off I just couldn't vote for it over Mad Max 2. I think I voted for a few that are unexpected. Also, where the hell is Chuck Norris? And furthermore, I think "Long Kiss Goodnight" could have also been on the 90s list. Often overlooked, but satisfying. -Cory

This was the hardest thing I ever had to vote on. I love They Live, but I had to vote for Die Hard with a Vengeance. Also, the Total Recall/Bloodsport one was so difficult, I spend hours thinking about it. Overall, I think I picked the right ones. Also, Cory, sorry no Chuck Norris. Maybe I'll do a 70s' action movie categories next year and have him in it. I'm just sad I couldn't find any place for Dolph Lundgren.
