Favorite Movie starring Kurt Russell

Another well known 80's "action" star. Which movie of his is your favorite, or that you would consider his "best"?

I love Kurt Russell and most of his movies, but without a doubt, my vote goes for Used Cars. Rudy Russo is one of the funniest characters of all-time.

Some of us are old enough to think of him as a well known '60s Disney star.

Can't say I particularly like any movie he's been in, so I voted Other, for Overboard.

Big Trouble in Little China. I just watched it the other night on the Fox Movie Channel. It's still a fun silly movie.

This really is one of the hardest questions ever on this site!

But I have said it before, NO-ONE says "goddamit!" like Kurt.

Favorite film would be The Thing, but my favorite character/performance would probably be Snake Plisskin in Escape from New York.

Big Trouble, though The Thing and Tombstone are right there.
