Eighty Awesome Eighties Action Heroes #17 Jack Burton

This movie freaked me out as a kid. I watched it again recently. We need another Jack Burton movie. The guy is an idiot

I loved BTiLC, and still do. hell, I wrote a paper on the damn thing in college analyzing its role as an interracial buddy film (comparing it to Blackboard Jungle and Alien Mine).

I could geek out on this endlessly, so suffice to say there really aught to be a sequel. Glad you included Jack.

(and if you threw down the gauntlet on 80's awesome Action Villains, would the Three Storms make the cut?)

Yeah it would have been cool to keep it to just heroes and do a villians follow up. But I've already done the T-800 from T1 so im gonna have villians in this eightie. I might do the electricity guy with his crazy hat
