There was no "EMO" at that time - there was loss over a gifted and talented actor who was the son of a martial arts legend that was ALSO lost early, and also while filming a movie.

And don't you worry about the future with me in it - I will be the one uttering those lines to several of the Space Zombies LONG before they get me....

The street shootout in Heat is awesome!

+100 on Shugart and Gordon. Those two HEROES took it to the skinny's in one of, if not the most epic battle in recent times.

+100 JD. i agree that movie is the best movie in my opinion. the things they did to finish it after he died. i think you can see the bullet that hits him in the scene.

Most of "We Were Soldiers"

You know a good shootout is going to happen when it's preceded by the line "Gentleman. Prepare to defend yourselves!"

Zulu Dawn. Any questions about the origin of the term "Thin Red Line" ?

I did forget about it - but I have to admit the final gunfight scene wasn't that great - though the music was a nice touch....

Thin Red Line - Sweet Jesus, halfway through that piece of crap I was looking for a rifle to wipe the rest of those guys out just to end MY suffering....
