You know Steven Segal movies ?

There is something so very cheap about Steven Segal movies. You can't put your finger on it . The explosions are there, the leading man has an instantly recognisable name , he is well dressed, the plot and the lines are all there. He exudes cool . The sets are interesting . The rest of the cast is decent too but still , there is something tacky and cheap about a Steven Segal movie. You cant say what is is but it is. What’s the point of all this analogy ?

It’s the same thing with some guys. They have the wheels, they have the threads , they talk the talk , they sell the image but there is just some indefinable characteristic about them that does not sit well. You may not be able to put your finger on it but its the Steven Segal movie " thing " . It’s something that just won’t add up.

Look at a Bruce Willis action movie . You don’t doubt it ! You just go with it completely taken in. Then look at a Steven Segal movie it lacks that thing that would make it a Bruce Willis movie.

Some men sell it and sell it and sell it but you’re not interested. You would pass the movie , you wouldn’t pick up the DVD. You don’t want it free on your tv , it’s just a pass.

The worst thing though are the people with the Steven Segal movie "thing" asking you why ?

Why don’t you find them "Bruce Willis movie" material and how can you answer that, like it’s just that you aren’t it .

Same budget, granted.
Great story, granted.
Some grey area of something’s not there, GRANTED!

Well all the best in spotting the Steven Segal movie from the Bruce Willis movie, you really should be able to.The worst thing though is your friend walking around with a Steven Segal movie telling you how AMAZING it is! Yuck, no its not, knowing it is enough satisfaction for me.


  1. why is this so true !!

  2. very funny and i hear you sometimes all the "things" are there but they dont mesh well. Like you could have the same ingredients but it may not all make the same tasting cake in the end for each of us.
