    I wish they had followed through with a "King Conan" film.. the old bearded Conan. He could've pulled that off awhile back. Maybe not now.

To trace the remote in the immediate; the eternal in the ephemeral; the past in the present; the infinite in the finite; these are to me the springs of delight and beauty.” ~ H.P. Lovecraft

    At his age, you shouldn't trust Ahnuld with a sword.
    He'd probably cut his nuts off, low as they hang.

    Hahaha!

    The first was dumb action fun. I'll see this on DVD when it get released.

    The Expendables had some strange effects. Lots of action, but it seemed like elements of the explosions and blood and guts were digital. Robert Rodriguez does the same thing... it's kind of cheap looking.

    The Expendables 2 is better than the first one. The action is less leaden, more kinetic, the explosion budget slightly higher. It brings in Jean-Claude Van Damme — who wouldn't participate in the first one, according to Stallone, because he thought the film's plot, which brought bloody war to Brazil, was socially irresponsible — as a sibilant, sunglasses-wearing villain with a goat symbol (Van Damme describes the animal as "the pet of Satan") tattooed on his neck. Stallone launches a motorcycle into a helicopter in the film's very first scene. Statham punches a man's head into a different helicopter's rotor. And Schwarzenegger, free of any pesky political obligations, returns to a more sizable role, game and lithe as a panther.
