‘The Expendables 2’: The Legend Of Van Damme’s Gold

The Expendables are back and older than ever, plus Liam Hemsworth!  This action-packed sequel is silly and stupidly entertaining, but at least it delivers on what seemed to be promised in the first film.  I was let down by the first film, due to its intent on striving for a fairly serious tone and boring […]

You’re Generally ‘Safe’ In The Hands Of Statham

Modern action stars are rare to come by these days.  There are plenty of past action stars who occasionally star in action movies still and there are younger actors that have done a few action movies, but a true action star is not as big a commodity these days.  One of the few still consistently […]

Standard Statham Romp Gets Star Aid In ‘Killer Elite’

It is sometimes fun to write about the various adventures of Jason Statham, but other times it can present a challenge.  Being perhaps the only pure modern action star of today, when Jason Statham makes a fun action movie, it is worth getting excited about and easy to go into detail about his latest wild […]

Gnomeo & Juliet 2D/3D (Blu-ray Review)

Walt Disney Studios has just released Gnomeo & Juliet on Blu-ray 3-D, Blu-ray 2D, DVD and digital download.  I was lucky enough to receive the 3-Disc Combo Pack which includes all of the options I just listed.  There is also a Two Disc Blu-ray Combo pack and One Disc DVD available. The dictionary defines cute […]

The Mechanic (Blu-ray Review)

Here we go, Jason Statham is back as a another unstoppable killing machine in The Mechanic. I’ve lost count as to how many films Statham has made where he plays a hitman, but what makes this film kind of a stand out is that it’s a remake of the classic 1972 film starring Charles Bronson.  […]

‘The Mechanic’ Works on Blu-ray This May!

The most powerful criminal believe they’re untouchable.  They couldn’t be more dead wrong.  The hyper-charged, high octane thrill ride, starring Jason Statham and Ben Foster, explodes locked and loaded on Blu-ray this May with never before seen deleted scenes and behind-the-scenes extras.  Of course I’m talking about The Mechanic.  Sony Pictures Home Entertainment has issued […]

‘Gnomeo & Juliet’ Brings Childish Joy For Few

Right off the bat, I am going to say that I will be surprised with how much I have to say about this movie by the time I reach the end of this review.  For whatever reason, Disney has not only decided to produce an animated comedy about lawn gnomes (which is not a bad […]

‘The Mechanic’ Provides A Few Spare Parts For A Quick Time Killer

Those in need of a new, quick action fix from Jason Statham should be pleased enough with The Mechanic.  I would give it a barely passing rating.  However, this recommendation is not really due to the movie being that good (it’s not really), nor because of the presence of modern action hero Jason Statham (although […]

‘The Expendables’ Fire Upon Blu-ray This Nov.!

One of my favorite moments at Comic-Con was undoubtedly when I got to see my childhood hero, Sylvester Stallone, promote his newest film, The Expendables, to the 6,000+ packed and captivated audience in Hall H (see here).  Well, it gives me great happiness in sharing the press release I received from Lionsgate in my inbox […]

Put Some Cheesy Faith Into ‘The Expendables’

Leading up to the release of The Expendables, the main joy came from the fact that Sylvester Stallone had managed to pull together a ton of action stars, from multiple decades, all in for one seemingly cheesy action movie.  While the film certainly delivered in that respect, I found the overall result to be more […]

The Expendables Delivers Fun Action, Little Else

I think when every red-blooded male heard that Sylvester Stallone was putting together a film that contained some of the most popular action stars from the 80’s and today, they got all googly-eyed as if they had just seen the gates of cinema heaven.  I should know.  I was one of them. It wasn’t long […]

Comic-Con 2010: The Expendables

This was the panel I came to San Diego for.  If there was one Comic-Con 2010 panel I was not going to miss, it was this one.  It would be the chance for me to see my favorite childhood action hero in real life, Slyvester Stallone, and I was not going to miss it for […]

Brian’s Top 10 Films of 2009

I waited patiently until after my most recent screening of Sherlock Holmes to compile this list that I have been looking forward to working on all year long.  As Gregg Senko kind of mentioned yesterday, it was not until the second half of the year that I was really able to round up a majority […]
