“The Expendables” Looks to Be the Manliest Movie for Men Ever Made

In the last post I put up the new “Scar Jo” Iron Man 2 poster for all to see. For this post I thought I’d turn the testosterone up to 11 to balance things out. Enjoy.

I think I am going to change the name of this blog to The Movie Culture Warrior. Comic books are so passé.

    Holy Shit! this could possible be the greatest movie of all time!

    But I thought Arnold said he wouldn’t do movies as long as he was Governor of California?


  2. IronMuskrat says:

    Ah, OK. not complaining. It cool see Arnold back along with everyone else.

  3. Mike F says:

    That was Bruce Willis in it right? because they didn’t say his name in it. I mean he’s a pretty big actor, I think he’s entitled.

  4. Deemar says:

    I’ve dreamed about this kind of movie since I was 10yr, too bad I’m 32 have witnessed the Bourne Trilogy.

    I’m gonna see it, but not I don’t feel as stoked as I should be.

  5. cballsack says:

    Where’s Seagal? Where’s Van Damme? If I were them, I’d feel very unloved right now.

  6. phil says:

    This looks like one train wreck of a movie but I gotta see it. Where the hell is Gibson?

  7. Deemar says:

    Theres a Walker Texas Ranger Mandate lkr

    you gotta have more cowbell you gotta have more chuck

  8. heckimlistening says:

    Fuck yeah Stallone! This looks to be the greatest action flick in a while.

    I was a HUGE Stallone fan growing up and still am. The newest Rambo film was kick ass.

  9. MicahSkin says:

    All the repressed homosexuality, none of the Cowboys.

    Like “True Lies” without that pesky plot (And pretty overt racism) getting in the way.

  10. SMARTASS8 says:

    While this is better looking than the last trailer, it still feels like a direct-to-video movie to me. I’ll definitely see it since I loved Stallone’s last 2 movies(Rocky Balboa and Rambo), but my hopes aren’t as high as they were when I first started reading about this.

  11. Smallmaniac says:

    Every man must see this movie!!!!!!

    The sequel should have Chuck Norries, Segal, and Vandamme.

  12. ...dj...sweet says:

    Holy Shit! Coulter and Austin are almost testosterone overkill. I like the planet Hollywood crews cameo.

  13. Jordan says:

    I wish someone can help me find the trailer thats currently on tv that says “Get ready to have a mangasm” please help me find one

  14. Insideman says:

    My heart sank when I read this Varity review (as I feel I can trust them to be fairly accurate).

    I am only reproducing the first 2 paragraphs… And wouldn’t even be doing that except Variety is behind a PAYWALL now.


    A hot mess — that’s what Sylvester Stallone and friends have wrought in “The Expendables,” a nearly incoherent all-stars-on-deck actioner that plays like “Grown Ups” on nitro or a brutish, blue-collar “Ocean’s Eleven” (which, financially speaking, isn’t a bad place to be). With no concept to go on at the screenplay level, Stallone impressively assembles a never-before-seen tough-guy lineup the likes of which B-movie fans should feel compelled to witness firsthand. Though the muddled execution falls far short of the talent involved, the Lionsgate release is loud and explosive enough that sequels will likely follow.

    And what self-respecting, testosterone-producing child of the “Rambo” era wouldn’t want to tag along for a mission with the likes of Barney Ross (Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Gunner Jensen (Dolph Lundgren), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) and Toll Road (mixed martial artist Randy Couture) — a multi-generational, cross-discipline roster of bone-crunchers, whose talents range from throwing knives to butchering the English language. But take the cast away, and there’s not much more here than the straight-to-DVD schlock that has kept conspicuously absent rivals Steven Seagal and Jean-Claude Van Damme busy of late.

    It is careful to note than actions fans will still go see this… because we will. 🙂
