Default Action movie article

From Bill Simmons of Grantland.

- No mention of the fact that Frank Bullitt and Harry Callahan were both based on the same guy, SFPD Inspector Dave Toschi. (I wouldn't just put that on my resume, I'd put that on my tombstone.)

- No mention of Gerard Butler at all. This is odd. You can argue other than 300, his movies never did that well at the box office, though, or maybe all his rom-coms cancelled out his action films.

- Speaking of Arnold, some finally put up all of Den'D, the crazy, over-the-top Russian remake of Commando, arguably the craziest, over-the-top film Arnold ever made. Can we get a crazy, over-the-top, Russian remake of Cobra next?
