Steven Perez
QUESTION: Listening to Kevin Smith's podcast. He's debating with his friend Malcolm about whether or not Kurt Russell is a "movie star". Do you think that Kurt Russell is a movie star?
I think yes, for three reasons: ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK, THE THING and BIG TROUBLE IN LITTLE CHINA. - Steven Perez
I'm trying NOT to remember OVERBOARD. That movie gives me the runs. - Steven Perez from IM
Oh, yeah: STARGATE. - Steven Perez from IM
No. - Anika
Anika: why? - Steven Perez from IM
The Thing, Escape from New York...classic......have to admit. - Seagate
Just answer me one question: has Mark seen it yet? :D - Steven Perez from IM
Hell yes he is! He's goddamn Iconic even! - ‘-.-’ Tutivillus Grift
I think he was a movie star. He is a lot like a lot of the action heros from the late 80's early 90's except he can act a bit more than them. Kurt Russell was one of my favorites and I def. stay interested in whatever he does. Backdraft! - Michael
I put OVERBOARD and CAPTAIN RON in the same boat as THE COMPUTER WORE TENNIS SHOES - best remembered hazily. - Steven Perez from IM
Two reasons: Stargate and Overboard. - Matthew Freeman
He's an actor. There's a difference between someone acting and a movie star. Will Smith would be a movie star. If this question had been posed before 1987, then I would have said yes, but Russell, who's been on film/TV since the 60s is now C-List. Maybe he'll start doing those old men movies 70s superstars do (the ret. cop coming back to the force to give sage advice to some idiot like Colin Farrel) and then he'll be a movie star again (see Morgan Freeman). - Anika
Yes, I think so. Thanks for reminding me that I need to catch up on those SModcasts too! - James Ferguson
He was a good actor in a crap film. But that was the whole point with GRINDHOUSE, yes? :) - Steven Perez from IM
Jason, Russell was a good actor on Gilligan's Island! - Anika
Cheers for the heads up Steven after listening to #1 yesterday I've got a mind blowing 72.5 episodes to catch up with. Pretty daunting. - Toby Graham
Toby, it's a really good podcast. Hilarious even. - James Ferguson
Lindsey: "I'm your huckleberry." :-) - Steven Perez from IM
When he was talking about his dad's 'move' he did at his gay brothers wedding I was laughing so hard, I must have looked like a lunatic to the other road users. Personally I don't consider Kevin a celebrity more a close friend. - Toby Graham
And then we'll order ROOM SERVICE! - Steven Perez from IM
While I'm tempted to agree with Jason, Lindsey noted a couple of exceptions that prove Russell has it in him. - Jim #teamFFrank
You're not as dumb as you look, Ike. :-) - Steven Perez from IM
What you said, Steven - Shevonne
He's a B movie actor, but that doesn't mean he's not a star. He's headlined too many movies to be just an actor. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
You're different. No arguing that. But you're a lady. - Steven Perez from IM
