Mania Review: The Expendables 2 (Article) - 8/17/2012 5:38:24 AM

I agree with violator...these expendables are great....but isn't Seagal the baddest 80's action icon.  I'd add Kurt Russel in there for his performances as Snake Plisken.  Maybe Seagal could be the villain in the third installment, because if there is one thing I know it's that Hollywood loves money and if the sequel makes money...well...you know

Mania Review: The Campaign (Article) - 8/14/2012 11:40:45 AM

For all of the posters who stated Will Ferrel can't act and always plays the same character I suggest you watch Stranger Than Fiction, Everything Must Go, and Melinda and Melinda.  All three are comedies in a way, but Ferrel actually plays a character with depth and you almost forget for 2 hours that he's Ricky Bobby or Ron Burgundy.  Many comedians have played serious roles with limited success.  Williams in Insomnia and Carrey in the Truman Show are prime examples.  So before you bury the guy, at least watch some of his films that weren't main stream comedies.

The Wolverine on Location (Article) - 8/5/2012 9:49:35 AM

I think JEH could play an older Daken, I don't think he's suited for a super hero.  I know Jackman is getting older, but they could do one more Wolverine movie with him as Old Man Logan.  Honestly that is one of my favorite Wolverine stories.  The current Origins story is pretty damned good and I couldn't see why they didn't use it.  It has trilogy written all over it.  Wolverine discover he has a son, said son is sadistic killer trained by shaowy figure Romulus, said Shadowy figure has brainwashed Logan for years and confused readers about Logan's actual origin.  You could have cameos with Deadpool, Sabretooth, Cyber, a few X-Men, Omega Red.  You cannot make it PG-13 though, anyone who has metal knives coming out of his hand and ninja swords is going to cause some serious bloodshed.  I need decapitations and loss of limbs and for Deadpool to not shoot laser beams out of his eyes.

Hudgens Joins Machete Kills (Article) - 8/5/2012 9:30:54 AM

Machete was a horrible movie, the acting in it was less than decent.  I liked Planet Terror and Death Proof.  I know that most people preferred Planet Terror, but from a directing and dialogue stand point Death Proof was the better movie.  Rodriguez did great with Sin City stylistically, but serious a good director could get more out of Michael Madsen.  His wooden portrayal of Bruce's detective buddy in Sin City was just flat out crap.  I like Danny Trejo as much as the next guy, but he is no leading man.  I respect Rodriguez because he's Texan and that's where he shoots his movies, but the best movie ever shot in Texas is No Country for Old Men.  That movie epitomizes the struggles that both Texans and Mexicans have living near the border, plus stellar acting.

Mania Review: Total Recall (Article) - 8/4/2012 10:34:50 AM

I used to think that Colin Farell was a bad actor, but it turns out he just doesn't do well in big budget action movies.  Watch the movie In Bruges, he has some talent, it's just mostly wasted in these types of movies due to bad directing.  I usually decide on how good a movie may or may not be by the guy directing it.  I've been dissapointed in the past, but if I see Martin Scorcese, James Cameron, or Ridley Scott then I expect the movie to be good and the acting to be great.

I will wait to rent this or watch it on Netflix. I usually agree with Rob, which is why his are the only reviews I read.  I'll usually check out RT for an aggregate score.  I don't think any review good or bad would make me want to see this movie.  I decided from the time I heard of the remake that I was not going to see it, mostly based on the guy who was directing it.

Saturn Award Winners 2012 (Article) - 7/27/2012 11:13:18 AM

Rise of the Planet of the Apes was a great movie, 100 times better than the original and 1000 times better than the Marky Mark remake.  Serkis is the most underappreciated actors working today and I think what he did in ROTPOTA trumps his portrayal of King Kong and Gollum.  It's a shame he hasn't won an Oscar.  Maybe Cruise's movie won because he is big news right now due to his divorce and scientology.  I've heard of the Saturn Awards, but the Cruise win probably was a grab at publicity for a lesser known awards show.  The only thing worth watching in Ghost Protocol is Paula Patton. I didn't watch Take Shelter, I thought about it, but after reading the synopsis decided not too. 

Director Talks Captain America 2 (Article) - 7/26/2012 10:36:16 AM

I think the Falcon is the equivalent of Aquaman.  Communicates with birds? How about no sidekick.  How about Sharon Carter, Mocking Bird, or anyone else incontinuity or otherwise...because the Falcon sucks. 

Captain Marvel #1 Review (Article) - 7/24/2012 11:21:39 AM

Super Heroes should never die of cancer, it's too ordinary.  I didn't bother to even read this, as I am not a fan of Ms. Marvel or Captain Marvel.  I definitely think the art should reflect the character and writing style.  Getting my first look at it, it seems his style would better fit some of Marvel's darker charcters...Punisher, Ghost Rider, Wolverine, or Daredevil.  Marvel is pulling some weird crap right now...although I did kind of like Space Punisher...weird and campy in a good way.  I think I've stated on previous board's that I am not a big Avengers comic book fan.  I love Cap, but I rarely read any of the other Avenger's members' Comics.  I read Wolverine, but I really wish he would leave the Avengers, he seems neutered and out of place.

Stan Returns as Bucky (Article) - 7/18/2012 11:38:27 AM

@ deathjim - Bucky becomes Capt. America when Cap "allegedly" gets shot after Civil War arc.  During Fear Itself Sin, or the Red Skull's daughter, rips Bucky's metal arm off and he dies, Steve Rogers decides to be Cap America once again.

@ Capt - I agree Cap is one of my favorite super heroes and I'd rather somebody(s) else direct the movie.  If you're looking for a directing duo, can't go wrong with the Cohens.

I do not like the Falcon, probably one of the dumbest super powers ever.  I like birds, but I'd rather talk to or communicate with dogs or just be a Doctor Doolittle/Beastmaster type and be able to communicate with any animal.  My favorite Black Super Hero? Wesley Snipes...he can evade taxes and has his own martial art...his one weakness Woody Harrelson.

Walking Dead Prison Photos (Article) - 7/6/2012 8:39:00 AM

@elrushbo - Why would I go to a prison during a zombie apocalypse?  Assuming I could clear the prison of any undead, it's definitely as secure of a place as you'll find in this country.  Americans have never been big on castles, but we're big on prisons.  There's several in every state.  High Fences, high walls, gates, and amenities meant for the use of a small populace such as a kitchen, bathrooms, showers, bunks, beds and housing.  There would be food stores most likely, probably not great food, but beggars can't be choosers.  Honestly, I'm surprised it hasn't been done before, maybe it has but I can't remember....too many zombie movies and shows lately.

In terms of a cure, yeah I'd have to say that's been delayed, especially since they all have the virus.  My only question regarding that is Why is it if you get bit you turn within days, but if you've contracted it via water or even the air you have to die to become a zombie?  That's new in terms of zombie lore, and I have a couple of logical reasons, but they don't seem to fit real well with what I know about other contagious diseases.
