    I seem to recall this movie being discussed on GT previously and there were a few fans (if they’re still around) here. I think it was here that I learned it was released internationally as “Dark Angel”.

    Not a bad 90’s action flick. It’s been a long time since I last saw it, even having forgotten it’s another to add to the list of “Christmas movies“.

    Currently playing on Starz Encore.

    He was smart enough to use his secondary talents to earn a bigger paycheck.

    I only remember one scene, I think an opening scene, where someone was killed by a CD player in a car. I remember people liking the scene because it was an early appearance of CD's in movies.

    It's fun.
    He's good at it.
    He makes money.
    Cute girls.

    l liked that movie.

    BTW, Brian May, the lead guitarist for Queen, who enriched our lives with "Fat Bottomed Girls" has a PhD is astrophysics. So, that's "Dr. May." :D

    I watched that a few months ago. Not as good as I remembered (I was 17 when I first saw it), but not bad for the time.

    One thing college does is open one's eyes to possibilities beyond one's normal experiences.

    Can’t remember where I saw this movie, but I enjoyed it.

    I’m a big fan of Sci Fi. Most space aliens are.

    With his education, he may have figured out a more efficient way to become successful.

    Watch his Ted Talk on his abusive childhood and how he got into acting.

    I gained some real respect for him.

    I saw that at the "It Came From the Drexel North" Science Fiction Marathon in Columbus Oh in 1990. It was pre-release (still didn't have its final name). It stunk on ice and this was at a fan filled event.

    Also saw "Army of Darkness" at the same marathon a few years later. I had never seen any of the Evil Dead series prior to that. Made me an instant fan of Bruce Campbell.

    Hard to imagine I did that more than once. I think I may still have one of the T-Shirts somewhere.

    Don't Kill It is a fun little movie with Dolph Lundgren and a body hopping demon. Quality is what you expect from that description.
