On Geekdom Action Flicks and Cthulhu - Jonathan Wood

"GD: Top ten action flicks? JW: God, I love this question… OK, the first two are obvious to me. Die Hard and The Matrix. Those movies bookended the 90s and are still massively influential. Die Hard taught us that its fun to watch our hero get pounded on. The Matrix taught us how to mash genres and styles, and how just to look damn cool. ... That’s 9, right? There are so many movies to put into the last spot… Maybe something less well known. The Brotherhood of the Wolf is a french movie with kung fu and sword fights and Monica Bellucci in a corset." 4 out of 5 http://www.wired.com/geekdad/2012/08/jonathan-wood-interview/
