The Expendables

  1. I have big hopes for this movie. The plot is "meh.." from what I've read, but...thats not really the reason anyone's gonna watch this one. I'm sure it's gonna kick ass!

    PS.
    Too bad Wesley Snipes can't be a part of it.

    It's like all your childhood heroes/villians/whutevs packed in one.
     
  2. I was initially excited about it, too, for the obvious reasons rather than the meaningful ones. But then, the 'meh' plot of this movie (and the recent disappointing discovery of Toy Story 3's not-so-awesome-plot) kinda dragged me down, and like a rollercoaster coming to a stop, so is my adrenaline level.

    Maybe I'll just wait for Crank 3.
     
  3. Sly's assembled pretty much every big-name movie badass of the past thirty years and has got them all into one crazy movie.

    This could be so, so fucking awesome. Here's hoping they don't cock it up.
     
  4. I think everyone's gonna be so self-aware that it'll probably ruin all plausibility. Especially the scene with Arnie, Bruce Willis and Sly. It'll probably just be a load of tongue-in-cheek injokes. And Jet Li and Jason Statham will probably just do lots of silent glaring as they stand to one side.

    What else has Stallone directed? We need comparisonisations!
     
  5. I have hopes for this movie...
     
  6. Didn't Stallone direct Rocky IV?

    I just want to see the scene with AHNULD, Bruce Willis and Sly.

    The rest of the movie can be total crap.

    I really don't care.

    I just want THAT scene to be good.
     
  7. Rocky 2, Rocky 3, Rocky 4, Rocky Balboa and the last Rambo.

    So er... it might be okay. He has some moments of depth.


    And at least Steven Segal isn't in it.
     
  8. WHY ISN'T HE? D:< EVERYTHING ELSE IS GETTING IT'S SPECIALIZED PUNCHER...They need "Cockpuncher" Seagal to make sure everything is covered!
     
  9. He's too busy beating up bad guys as a police officer.

    Yes, Steven Seagal is actually a MOTHERFUCKIN' POLICEMAN.
     
  10. Shut up, trolls. I like Steven Seagal. I grew up watching him.

    <_<"
     
  11. Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, guys.
     
  12. Only man I've ever seen use a credit card as a weapon beyond when a wife gets a hold of one from her husband.

    And took down around 3 guys with it.
     
  13. I'm surprised Jean Cleade Van Damme doesn't make a cameo in the movie. O_o
