Best of the Best (1989) Ragtag American Tae Kwon Do team vies for glory and honor. Every cliché conceivable, but extra stars for being so darn enjoyable. TIL: As the Patron Saint of Athletes and Soldiers, St. Sebastian usually gets the calls from martial artists as well.

The Intruder (1981) Caped emissary of Howard Turt offers self-actualization to dreary small town Canada. Mesmerizing in a "what the hell is this" kind of way. TIL: Maslow's self-actualization is an obsession with self-concern. Christianity asks us to focus on the needs of others.

Split Second (1992) Ruther Hauer tracks a heart-eating killer in future flooded London. Hauer's Hauer, and the recognizable faces help keep things lively. TIL: The well-known image of the pierced Sacred Heart represents Christ's long-suffering love and compassion for humanity.
