Don't Forget To Love, part 1 of 24

Recently fellow blogger Mr. Gaga of Gaga The Movies revealed that he was considering doing an advent calendar for his blog. That inspired me to do one as well. My take on the idea is to bring you a short post every day between the 1st and the 24th of December, reminding you about a film or a TV-show you shouldn't forget to love. It's that simple. So without further ado, here is the first...

Lethal Weapon (1987)

What better way to start the show than by remembering this classic '80s movie? By the fourth film the franchise had deteriorated into silly slapstick, but the original movie is relentless and uncompromising.

Featuring a razor-sharp script from Shane Black, and topnotch direction from Richard Donner, this is as good as it gets when it comes to a serious action movie. Mel Gibson's portrayal of Martin Briggs is the best work he's ever done. And Danny Glover is there too.

Oh, and it's even a christmas film!

Never forget to love it.


  1. Perfect start, I'll be back tomorrow for more stuff to love...

  2. "And Danny Glover is there too." Ha ha. My first movie on VHS. This is pure love. Thanks :-)

    Thanx Sir!
    Awesome! My first movie on VHS was Howard the Duck. Yes, I know.
