* out of ****    "The Expendables" is, simply put, a missed opportunity. I really do dig what Sylvester Stallone, operating from both ends of the camera as co-writer/director and star, …

13 (2010 movie)
"13" is the first movie, I can recall, since "The Deer Hunter" that uses Russian roulette as a plot device. I would go out on a limb and say that "13" utilizes Russian roulette …

One of thing things I learned after following pro wrestling a few years back is what happened to those names I used to hear about all the time like Jake Roberts and Lex Luger.  I never heard about …

The Wrestler
Washed up 80's wrestling superstar copes with his rockstar days long gone and living day to day in a very non glamorous life. Runs the rollercoaster of touching, hard, fun and sad.

There is NOTHING surprising in this movie. You get to know ahead how it will end. So, plot-wise, nothing spectacular.       What is amazing is the array of emotions that one could …

This movie is exactly what I wanted it to be. A bunch of out dated eighties stars killing brown and black people. The worst thing that could have happened to this movie is if it became a social commentary. …

There was a time when you could rely on a bad action film to at least supply you with action. "The Expendables," which is said to be an homage to the guy films of the 1980s and 1990s, doesn't …

My son saw it and said it was real good. Looking forward to finding some time to get to this. Haven't seen a really good action flick like this since Inglorius Basterds.

For a while I've gotten tired of the "new" guard of action movies.  Usually too stylized with little guys running around.  Too much bullet time and taking themselves so seriously.  …

Rip roaring action adventure in the old 80's sense. Keeps going, rarely lets up and takes everyones names.

Mickey gives the kind of performance that we all knew he still had in him. Marisa Tomei was equally amazing.

Powerful movie that depicts the side of wrestling and sports that we may not think about, getting older and dealing with trying to continue doing something you love.
