3/10: The Movie that Cannot be...
Friday, August 20, 2010

The Movie that Cannot be Unmade I have to give fair warning, I didn't like this movie and I am officially sending up the flag of SPOILER ALERT. If anyone holds me responsible for giving away key elements to the movie plot I am legally not liable. On second thought, if you hold me responsible for ruining this film because I am giving away pieces of the plot have no fear, the movie would have ruined itself for you had you simply seen the movie with no idea of what to expect. Please trust me, the book is no better than the film.I will start my more rant with Mickey Rourke. I like Mickey, truly I do. I think Barfly was great, and so was the Wrestler, and Sin City and I respect his undefeated boxing record. I will argue that he was the only redeemable quality in Iron Man 2 and he was even good in this...

1/10: The 'D-' Team Sure, Sylvester...

The 'D-' Team Sure, Sylvester Stallone isn't the most bankable star. He's washed up and knows it. I appreciate that he knows, though writing and directing that theory into an incredibly shallow, talentless and pointless movie containing characters with zero depth or chemistry between each other and bringing other D-List stars down with him is just plain wrong.The Expendables didn't have much going for it, except for taking the Freddy Vs. Jason idea to a whole new level. Not a better level, but just expanding the cast of has-beens. So, I guess the only way for the film to go is up, upon viewing? NO. It started low and got worse.The action was so few and far between that when you finally got to one of the few scenes, though they were decent, you're left so bored, it's hard to remember at that time this is, in fact, an action flick...

8/10: "Expendables" Reminds Us Why We...
Monday, August 9, 2010

"Expendables" Reminds Us Why We Will Watch Sylvester Stallone "The Expendables" is without question the most anticipated movie of the summer of 2010. Its cast is a who's who of established action film stars of the previous three decades. Even though the previews gave away the cameo by Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, it still gave us just another reason to stand in line for this movie.And who else leads the impressive roster of stars but the American dream himself, Sylvester Stallone, who also co-wrote and directed this movie himself. Stallone is one of those rare movie stars who, even in that period of time (circa 1998-2005) when he wasn't making many films, you never heard him referred to as a B-lister or a has-been. It could be because he has arguably had more career comebacks than any actor in history.Don't call "The Expendables" a comeback, though. If anything, it's a further...

7/10: Big action balls!!! So I...

Big action balls!!! So I guess with any film review - it's all about the answers to the important questions. So let's get them out of the way first shall we?Q) Is the plot descent, with a substantial storyline including dramatic arcs, twists and/or turns?A) Not particularly.Q) Are there character arcs and meaningful character developments?A) A little.Q) Is there romance?A) Next question, please.Q) Is the overall film original?A) Not at all.Q) Is it a likely Oscar nomination contender?A) Hell no!Q) Is it still awesome?A) HELL YES!!!!!Critics should be banned from reviewing films such as these. Anyone with half a brain can tell exactly what kind of film this is and what they're in for purely by the film's trailer alone.This is a film made for action movie fans and not just regular action movies - I mean REAL action films in the style...

10/10: Stallone does it again! After...
Sunday, August 15, 2010

Stallone does it again! After nearly a decade of disappointments Stallone shocked the movie world by making a 6th emotionally charged Rocky, he then went on to please fans by taking Rambo into a visceral brutally realistic war movie, now for his hat trick Stallone gave us something old and something new 'The Expendables' the type of movie kids dreamed about the early 90's, what if this guy & that guy and him where all in a film together. A little too late? Hell no! Never has this film been more needed. In a land of watered down PG-13 wire work action movies real action fans where desperate for some real old school action. (Cobra, Commando, Delta Force, Last Boy Scout..) The great thing about this film is even if it didn't have the cast it still would be a great action movie, the fact it has such a jaw dropping cast just makes it all the better...
