Guns blazing, music pounding, and people in some kind of turmoil – yeah, everyone likes a good action movie. Not that every film needs this specific criteria to qualify as a “good” action movie. The summer blockbusters are clear evidence that we all enjoy munching down on some tasty popcorn as the CGI sequences blow our minds away. I find that time and time again if I’m ever in the mood to pop in a BluRay that it will more often than not be of the action/adventure genre.
What is it about these kind of films that makes us shell out our hard earned cash so easily? Doing some quick research on the topic at hand, I found that it might be due to the fact that for whatever reason we enjoy being stressed out. But this stress is “controlled stress” which, as I was reading, is referred to as being similar to a roller coaster ride. I don’t know about all of that, but I definitely consider the action movies I watch to be a great escape from the mundane. With this in mind, I felt that I should make mention of 5 action flicks that are my “go-to” when I need to indulge my senses.
