Welcome back. This is the part of the locker room where you can sit and chat and chill for a while without offending or being shushed. Maybe you wanna watch a dvd or listen to your mp3. Yes, I rhymed. Something on your mind, post it! Random question, ask it? Hijacking is allowed and encouraged. Join the party, troll around, have a beer. It's cool. All are welcome, but please leave all BS in the hall.
Morning. Movie review Monday? Because I did nothing else all weekend.
1. The Expendables. I'm sure the critic reviews were low C, high D at best, but I don't see what's not to love. It's pretty awful and great at the same time. Co-written, directed by, and starring Sylvester Stallone. Expectations should be adjusted to that. Rocky, the russian, the Transporter, The One, The 9 1/2 wk perv, Julia Roberts' brother, and Terry Crews made for great entertainment, unintentional I'm sure, but it still counts, right? Mercenaries, an exotic woman, drugs, explosions, Charisma Carpenter getting punched in the face, and lots of fighting was a good time for me. My biggest issue was trying to understand anything that was said when Rocky and the transporter were attempting to dialogue...or the russian...or the One, for that matter. I may not have understood a word for half of the movie, but who cares; more comic relief. It's Rambo or Delta Force with more people. Solid B- (of course I'm easy sometimes)
2. The A-Team. It may be the nostalgia from the show, but I loved this movie. The cast and typical "don't trust any gov't agency" plot worked oh so well. Bradley Cooper with his shirt off was worth the price of admission alone, in my opinion. It was dramatic, it was funny and fun, it was good. It was The Expendables but done correctly. A.
3. RED- Old people meets Burn Notice. Great cast, decent story, drama, and laughs. I enjoyed it. A.
4. Season of the Witch. Nicolas Cage. Nuff said. Melodramatic B.
