Movie News Report: He Lived Long and Prospered

Encase anyone was wondering I am still doing reviews but haven’t seen any new films recently and the new trailers have been poo. I will be watching and reviewing Chappie next week.

This is an end of the week wrap up of what has happened in the geeky world of movies. I took better notes this time so I have a more complete list of things that have happened. Sadly nothing of much note has happened in the world of movies. So this post is a bit more random. And of course the devastating news that Leonard Nimoy has passed away.

Also I’ll include some movie features I liked from the blogosphere. I follow a lot of nerds!

Escape Plan (2013) Review

I actually liked this film and believe me I was not expecting to enjoy this.  Still have a bad taste from Bullet to the Head (awful!) and to a lesser extent The Last Stand. But I genuinely enjoyed watching this film and had a lot of fun. Haven’t laughed at Arnies one liners for a while and I really miss it, he has some hysterical ones in this. The only down side to this film is how sad that it never got made in the 80’s or 90’s when the two were in their prime but still this was pretty good regardless. There are a lot of weird things in this film that I will mention later but nothing too bad and it doesn’t interfere with the main story. I’ll go into much more detail below but for now bookmark this if you are waiting to see the film, leave any comments below, if you have seen the film then check out the spoiler sections and I will look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts.

“You hit like a vegetarian” Nearly my favourite quote of the film but not quite, not going to write my favourite haha “Helmet”.

Demolition Man (1993) Review

I thought whilst I was on a 90’s theme of films I would keep it going until I see some new films in cinema. So with that in mind here is one film of Stallone’s that I really have a lot of fun watching, not because of it being good but because of its fantastically funny satire and character relationships between its main cast. I have a sneaking suspicion that this film is why Stallone was picked for the Judge Dredd role, not a good choice to make really as they went so similar but tried with the Dredd material and they don’t mix well. Either way by the end of the film you’ll be asking yourself ‘would I eat a rat burger?’

Winner of The Best/Worst of Sylvester Stallone

Since the ‘Expendables 2’ is coming out next month I thought it would be fun to do ‘the best of’ for the three biggest action stars, done Schwarzenegger a while ago and will link that below, a couple of weeks ago I did Willis’s best films and now I am doing Stallone’s best films and worst because I am not a huge fan of his. Just to point out that Stallone is a terrible actor and this list is so small that I am even including two of his films that I don’t like because it’s relevant to another release (Dredd). I haven’t actually watched a great deal of his films but apparently everything that isn’t part one of the series below is awful (well three other films that are apparently good but I haven’t seen them), cant verify that but I don’t particular like his work so I won’t be paying to see his worst (worst list not going to happen just this post).

The Expendables 2 (2012) Review

All the action guys are back with more action and more relics plus it managed to be better than the first. I believe that with this film they decided to rethink what happened in the first film and decided to simple have more fun with this and it was easily a more entertaining film to watch. So if you didn’t like the first one don’t worry this film isn’t the same but on the same level if you liked the first film then you will like this even more. Plus the cameos are much better and longer in this film.
