I will never tire of listening to that music!!!! It makes me smile every time and so does your podcast Shannon. You have my head reeling about how do I define an action movie? It's true, the industry now kind of sums up anything that is not a drama as being action, I suppose. For me? When I think action, I think Tank Girl. Trying to wrap my head around what that means. Lots of movement, lots of fighting, lots of explosions and a woman who kicks butt big time. Fascinating question Shannon! Fascinating you find who is in it as definitive of the genre. Now I totally have to see The Losers!
