So it seems that the news is out on Arnold returning to acting today! I say It’s about time! Enough with the politics already!! Let’s take a quick moment to think about what Ah-nold should do next! We have to figure he’s now 63 years old so his roles may not be quite what they used to be-although if he’s going to do a follow up to one of his action movies NOW is the time before he gets way way too damn old to do any of them.
I say give him a few months to get into shape and put him in the next Expendables movie-he could be a villain or even face off against Stallone! That seems pretty likely actually. Although I could also see him turning up on the Predator hunting planet as an older Dutch and helping Adrien Brody kick some alien be-hind!
But my hopes really are that he will reprise the role of Conan in a movie he had been rumored for years to be possibly making: King Conan. He would be perfect in this role as the aged King set off on one last adventure. Personally that’s the role I am hoping for and I know people are already buzzing about it too. What I’m not hoping for is for him to now only take serious roles because he thinks he’s too old. Whatever the case I’m stoked to hear he’s back and cross my fingers for at least one more “Classic Arnold” role…..
Ok so it really no mystery now that Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis are appearing in The Expendables movie. It’s so much NOT a mystery that they both actually appear in the new trailer for the movie released today. I must say I have been excited for this movie now for a while since it’s been billed as an obvious throwback to the action movies of the 80’s. Think Cobra, Commando, Deathwish, Raw Deal and Die Hard. Back in a time where there was no CG, when there were real planes flying on the screen, real explosions and not a bunch of rubbery looking CG characters on the screen doing back flips and cartwheels as seen in the ultra lame G.I. Joe movie and countless other loads of steaming shit. This is an actual great accomplishment from Sly whether you love the guy or hate him, he seems to know what’s been missing in action movies today. C’mon did you see the last Rambo movie? It was raw and realistic (ok so maybe not that realistic) but you get the idea. Sure Sly looks like he’s had some plastic surgery, been dying his hair and been pumped up on weird ass growth hormones but still the guys is bringing back what has been missing from the modern action movie: unrealistic realism! check it for yourself right here and remember he brought back Dolph Lungren to the big screen and tried to court an unwilling Van Damme to appear in this flick-how cool is that? The Expendables is gonna bring it all back-old school style!
Ok well not too sure about the “Nickleback” sounding song in the trailer but hopefully this will live up to the hype…
So I figured since we are already in the mood for Stallone with last blogs update on possible Rambo 5 plotlines-wait, Rambo movies have plots?!! Anyway I just saw the official trailer finally for The Expendables! The all star cast action movie that’s written and directed by Sly himself! This movie is a throwback to 80’s action flicks and is sure to deliver the goods! Lots of explosions, machine guns and one liners! I found out that the trailer has been up now for a week or so but I don’t care-I just saw it for the first time ( plus a couple weeks ago when I checked it was taken down for some reason) and it looks like alot of fun! I still can’t believe Van Damme turned this down-what a shmuck! check it out…
I’m sure everyone has heard all about “The Expendables” movie already? If not It’s a new movie that Sylvester Stallone is writing, directing and starring in! I don’t give a shit what anyone says his last RAMBO movie was soooo bad ass! So naturally I am pretty excited for this one. The premise is simple: a team of mercenaries head off to South America to kick the crap out of a dictator. Sounds like nothin special huh? Well what is so rad about this movie is the cast. Arnold Schwarzeneger, Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lungren, Danny Trejo!! Oh man the only one they are missing is Van Damme!!
