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.
