Yesterday had this to say:

"Probably all kinds of contempt from anyone reading this selection, but Blazing Saddles was before my time. So, while I appreciate it's value in movie history asva satire, it's just another Mel Brooks movie that isn't Spaceballs to me when I watch it. On the other hand, there's thousands of movies with a better story, acting, fighting, and cinematography than Kickboxer 2. There's also nothing about it to even give it that so bad it's good quality. However, I loved straight to video martial arts movies as a kid in the early 90s, especially Kickboxer. The lack of JCVD in this was a big deal to me at the time, but it also made it stand out above a lot of the other movies like it that they were constantly churning out back then. This is one of those times when nostalgia wins over the better overall movie here. Anybody else with me or am I literally the only one here?"
