9. The Expendables

I dream of concepts such as, world peace, a cure for cancer, donuts that are healthy, three day weekends every week and of course, a film with all my favourite big action movie heroes starring in it.

The Expendables due out on the 12th of August here in Australia, stars no less than 7 action movie stars that make my list. Sly Stallone, Jet Li, Bruce Willis, Dolph Lundgren (aka "big russian dude from Rocky), Jason Statham and uncredited appearances by Bruce Willis and the legend himself, Arnold Schwarzenegger.

 If this movie actually has a decent storyline I may be able to die a... well, let's say a 'content' man. I would, however, have been able to die a happy man If they had added Wesley Snipes ("you forgot cho boardin pass!"), Stephen Seagal, Kurt Russel and the CGI inclusion of Neytiri from Avatar. The only thing I'm a bit sceptical about is Mickey Rourke with the cheesey grin and a funny looking sombrero on his head; everyone else in this movie is looking badass yet here we have good ol Mickey looking like the matured alcoholic version of Speedy Gonzales that kill's terrorists with his morning breath <sigh>  love ya Mickey...(not really).


  1. I think, apart from the cinematography (and famous actors), the movie is terrible. going through halfway, I already started counting minutes for it to end.

    In conclusion, u have a bad taste for movies. =p

  2. Ira! actually... I agree with you, this blog entry was written before the movie was released here. I saw the movie a few weeks ago and thought it was probably the worst movie I've seen since Dragon Ball Evolution. I thought the script was cheesey, lame and boring. Sylvester Stallone should never write another movie again! :D

  3. Ohya, I just noticed that. Its okay, I'll catch you next time. ;p
