CHAMPION. CHARISMA. CHARACTER. These are the qualities that make a badass.
Next up in the Badass lineup is Demolition Man! Sylvester Stallone (badass status pending) and Wesley Snipes star in a movie that came out at the tail end of roided-up action flicks. San Angeles is a utopia/dystopia full of the ultimate cringe in laws, logic, and slang. And Stallone isn’t having it. The cops release Snipes to take down the swearing, violent Stallone. Watch these two rampage across the nanny state.

The Mist (2007)

Tentacles, spiders, and flying bugs. Oh my! When a mysterious mist rolls into town, a group of people trapped in a grocery store come into conflict with the dangerous creatures outside and the growing tension inside. Sounds crazy? Sure is! But we had plenty of parts of this movie that we really liked. Aside from a bit of the good old horror movie stupidity, it’s an engaging movie. Director Frank Darabont created a new ending that made Stephen King himself jealous, so yeah, it’s pretty dark.
