Movie of the Week: The Last Action Hero.

If you’re wondering why I picked The Last Action Hero, given that the star (Arnold Schwarzenegger) of it has recently been revealed to have fathered a child out of wedlock over a decade ago (and hiding it from his wife for that amount of time), it’s simple: the character (Jack Slater) played by Schwarzenegger had an opportunity to confront his… English doesn’t really have a perfect word for it.  Not ‘creator;’ not exactly ‘interpreter,’ either.  Anyway, Slater wasn’t happy to meet the guy that was kind of responsible for Slater having to live in an action movie universe:

I do not like you. You have only brought me pain.

And, honestly?  Turns out that when Schwarzenegger was playing himself as a self-centered, ultimately hollow man… he wasn’t acting.  In other words, this movie has been improved, thanks to recent developments.  Hard to imagine, but htere you go.

And so, adieu to Monsters.
