When can we stop pretending that Dwayne Johnson is an action hero?

When can we stop pretending that Dwayne Johnson is an action hero?
At this point in his career, Dwayne Johnson is stuck between The Rock and a hard place. He's already overcome an obstacle that has pinned many a man: a wrestling past that places him squarely in the same category as acting luminaries like Hulk Hogan, 'Rowdy' Roddy Piper and Jesse Ventura. Johnson has more acting talent in his pecs than these grapplers had in their entire bodies, but recently, The Artist Formerly Known As 'The Rock' has accepted roles that don't play up to his strengths - and when I say 'strengths' I'm not referring to his muscles. Dwayne Johnson is not an Action Hero, so can we stop treating him like on?

I honestly have no idea how he got hold of my email address.

I just now got round to watching Piranha 3DD so here are some notes
Tonight was one of those nights where there was literally nothing on so you go, look, we can either watch Alan Carr do fake-laughs about cheap alcohol with someone from TOWIE or we can watch Piranha 3DD. I wish somehow I could have closed my eyes and synergised the two together so I could have watched Alan Carr being eaten by angry fish. Here are my notes on Piranha 3DD which are only three years late.

But seriously folks, here's the first poster for Olympus Has Fallen sequel, London Has Fallen. Kudos to the marketing team for waiting until May 8th to release it. There's no way that was a coincidence.

Things you notice after watching the Jurassic Park trilogy for the 61st time
There's never a bad time to watch movies about dinosaurs, but with Jurassic World around six weeks away, it seemed like high time I rewatched the Jurassic Park trilogy again - it has been almost five months since the last time I watched it, after all. I think I said my piece pretty comprehensively during Jurassic Park Week in 2013, so what follows are just stray observations - the kind you really only pick up from having already watched something 60 times.

WAIT...



Place your bets on how many minutes of screen time Robert De Niro gets in this new thriller. Twelve? Seven? Three? I'll wager that co-star Mark-Paul Gosselaar (aka Zack from Saved By The Bell) gets more lines.

8 amazing things that happen in The Asylum's Avengers Grimm
The Asylum is back, and this time it's shilling two turds with one groan. Both superhero films AND live-action fairy tales get the rip-off treatment in a film that has little to do with either. But where there's scantily-clad actresses and Lou Ferrigno, there's hope and wonder to be crushed. SPOILERS.

Box-office report: Avengers: Age Of Ultron makes total fucking shit-tonne
The first Avengers movie broke records when it scored a fucking massive domestic opening weekend of $204.7 million fucking dollars, but sequel Age Of Ultron looks like it might make even more fucking money than that, with a fucking astonishing take of $201.2 million fucking dollars internationally - and that's before the fucking thing has even fucking opened in America.
