It's the little things that make me happy.

 Randomly flipping channels, I bop by SciFi.  John Carpenter's The Thing is on!!!!  *fangirl dance of glee*

To me, that's like an early Christmas present!  

Not only is it one of my favorite movies, but Kurt Russell is freakin' hot as Hell in it!!

Today, at 57, the man still works Teh Power of Teh Pretty!  *swoons*

Also?  The special effects manage to hold up to this day.  

Who the Hell needs CGI when you've got an infinite supply of blood squibs, plastic tubing, butcher shop leavings, and about a gazillion tons of KY Jelly?!

CGI has its place, but a lot of effects look much better when done the old fashioned way.

I agree. The thing that pisses me off about CGI is that everytb ody & their freakin' grandmother are using it & it usually looks AWFUL! Prime examples would be practically any of those bad SciFi channel movies.

I'm old school. You already know my love for Savini, but throw in Rick Baker, Rob Bottin, Stan Winston, or Dick Smith & I'm all over it! *is an FX geek*

He. Is. AWESOME!!! Even in something pretty cheesy like Tango & Cash, I love him.

*sigh*

He'll always be MacReady/Snake Plissken to me!

Awesome! Thanks, Zo! *pets Snake's...snake* *cough* What?!

I even love Escape From L.A.!

He played Elvis once...did a damn good job of it too. Do you remember when he was on Lost in Space? OMG...I can't believe I just admitted to watching that show. *giggle*

Rap! Such behaviour! I'm so not surprised!! ; )

I remember him playing Elvis...I agree he did a great job!

He was on Lost in Space? Really? I never watched the show myself but it seems you've been stalking poor Kurt for a long time!

Oh, I love Kurt Russell! So cute, and such a man's man! I even have all his cheesy Disney movies on DVD. The Barefoot Executive! *facepalm* My husband loves Overboard. My favorites are Used Cars, The Best of Times, and Stargate. What can I say? I'm all about comedies and sci fi. Why do you think I watch Supernatural? :)

He really is a man's man, isn't he?!

I love Overboard & Swing Shift. He & Goldie are so cute together.

One of my all-time faves, however, is Tombstone. You got Kurt, Sam Elliott (RAWR), Val Kilmer, Michael Biehn (RAWR)...PLUS...it's COWBOYS!!!!!!!!!! Gotta love it!

I know he's too famous to do it, but I think he'd make an excellent hunter on Supernatural (Sam Elliott, too).

I've never seen Tombstone. I may have to check that out. I've never been a big western fan; the last one I remember loving was Silverado. Young Kevin Costner was hot!

I adore Sam Elliott, but I haven't seen him in anything for a long time, because of the whole not-a-western-fan thing. :D Have you ever seen Lifeguard? It's dated, but awesome nonetheless.

Either of them would be a dream come true on Supernatural! Maybe Kurt and Jared should make a movie together. I think they could easily pass for father and son. But I'd really love to see Kurt and Jensen acting opposite one another. It would be a testosterone explosion!

I heart Kurt so much.

I've seen virtually every movie he's ever done and the love affair started with his eary Disney flicks.

He has that rugged appearance that just makes me go grrrr...

Kay, better behave myself.

There is no such thing as behaving yourself on my LJ!
