    Who did you like better?

    Liked both, but that kick to the face from "The Muscles from Brussels" was worth the price of admission!

    Oh no, gotta be Aaron Sorkin - all that energetic conversation while walking through the hallways - now there's some excitement!

    Seagal by a slim margin. Van Damme's best movies were in the late 80s (Bloodsport & Kickboxer). Seagal's last good one was Under Siege in '92. His run of Hard To Kill, Marked For Death & Out For Justice in the early part of that decade made for some excellent video rental nights.

    Where's that gif of Seagal running? Never gets old.

    Definitely Van Damme. The only Seagal movie I really like is "Marked For Death". Some of the others are okay, but I can name about five Van Damme movies I get a real kick out of.

  9. JCVD. His recent movies arent too bad either. He doesnt take himself too seriously.

    Seagal. He was on fire from 88-95. I need rewatch them all from both guys.

    I voted for JCVD but I kinda agree with Michael, I enjoy watching both on film. I have several films of each on LD, DVD & BR.

    He was excellent as a slightly fictionalized version of himself in the movie JCVD, where he is getting divorced, has money problems and winds up trapped in the middle of a bank robbery. And of course all the bank robbers are huge John Claude Van Damme fans. It's a hoot!

    Though Guy Thursdays and Movies For Guys Who Like Movies on TBS in the late 90s was awesome for these movies.

    Timecop, Van Damme's best film, is a lot better than Under Siege, Segal's best film.

  22. That was one of the recent movies I was thinking of. There was another film where he is trapped on an island with a bunch of corporate people and through circumstances, like Lord of the Flies, reveal he's a fraud.
