    So let me get this straight, Van Damme isn't the greatest ever.

    I'll say this for Jet Li. Despite my criticism of his acting skills elsewhere in this folder, he's not nearly as painful to watch as Jean Claude Van Damme.

    Someone having their eyes gouged out with blunt, rusty spoons isn't as painful to watch as JCVD.

    Funny you should mention eye gouges..

    Remember when JCVD got sued for blinding a stuntman in a choreographed fight? Ouch.

    Peace is not the product of terror or fear.
    Peace is not the silence of cemeteries.
    Peace is not the silent result of violent repression.
    Peace is the generous, tranquil contribution of all to the good of all.
    Peace is dynamism. Peace is generosity.
    It is right and it is duty.

    Speaking of bizarre and scandalous ex-celebrity news, did anyone hear about Don Johnson getting stopped at a german airport last month with eight billion dollars in liquid assets (bearer bonds and so on) in a suitcase?

    Yes, that's billion with a b as in boy. I haven't heard any follow up stories on that, but I'll bet the tale behind his moving that kind of scrilla is a doozy.

    If memory serves, when authorities asked him why he was carrying so much he said "I'm buying a car" to which they replied "It looks like your buying the factory."

    that's really hilarious! the part about a "musical training montage..." was the best. for such a terrible actor, he's got a lot of movies under his belt. still sucks though

    Ironically I have never seen Bloodsport. The only JCVD movies I have seen are Kickboxer, Streetfighter, Time Cop and The Quest (which was like a remake of Bloodsport).

    The eye thing was

    In 1989, he was sued for "willfully" gouging the eye of an extra in a swordfight while filming Cyborg.
