How to tell you’re a nerd: Method 93
You’ve said the following statement to another person (though thinking it in the first place was nerdy enough):
“When one considers the slew of urban gladiatorial martial arts movies that were released in the 1980s and early 1990s, perhaps the two best films in that genre would have to be Jean-Claude Van Damme’s 1988 film Bloodsport, and the 1992 film American Samurai, starring David Bradley and Mark Dacascos.”
Knowing that both films are rather cheesy, and yet entertaining, you then try to determine which is better. However, you come to an impasse when you realize that though American Samurai has martial arts swordplay and Bloodsport does not, you’ve only seen the heavily-edited US release of American Samurai, and Bloodsport is based on a true story.
