Create your own Expendables villain!

Create your own Expendables villain!
As you've no doubt seen discussed on The Pirate Bay, The Expendables 3 hits cinemas this week. It's a franchise famous for overblown action, probable steroid abuse and dubious berets, but above all else, it's famous for its ridiculous character names. Joining Lee Christmas, Hale Caesar and Toll Road is Mel Gibson's villain: Conrad Stonebanks. Let the swill around your mouth for a few minutes.

The Expendables 3
In The Expendables 3, grizzled veteran Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone) faces an existential crisis after miraculously cheating death and battling the ravages of age, and is ultimately forced to put his demons to rest to defeat a former ally who has gone rogue. Oh, and literally blow the shit up out of everything he passes.

Review: Machete Kills

Machete Kills
So where are we at with Mel Gibson? Poor old racist, misogynist, anti-semitic, fly-off-the-handle Mel - have we forgiven him? I only ask because he's far and away the most entertaining thing about Machete Kills, yet I'm not sure if I laughed at his antics for genuine LOL-worthy reasons, or because of some weird residual fascination after that time he called a policewoman "sugar tits" and became one of Hollywood's most reliable loons for a while. Can it be both? For what is essentially a one-note joke, Machete Kills is full of questions.

Review: How I Spent My Summer Vacation

How I Spent My Summer Vacation
Well, I think we can all guess how Mel Gibson spent his summer vacation, amirite? Yelling anti-Semitic accusations into the voicemail of someone with tabloid connections? Drunkenly embarking on a tirade of racist and domestic abuse against his ex-wife? Playing Grand Wizard at a clan rally gathering before a burning wicker effigy? Right, I'm out. Shall we get on with the film?

Script development, Mel Gibson style

Audio recording of Mel Gibson ranting at Joe Eszterhas over the alleged non-completion of his script for The Maccabees, as recorded by Eszterhas' son, Nick. "WHO WANTS TO EAT?" indeed (courtesy of TheWrap).

Stop the press: Mel Gibson actually LOVES the Jews
In news that will make Jews everywhere drop their dreidels and shout, 'Oy!', Mad Mel's making a movie about Judah Maccabee. Could there be a more inappropriate project? You know where we're going here.

Mel Gibson takes to hiding behind puppets to avoid more trouble
So you've shamed your Hollywood career and been sacked from The Hangover 2 for apparently pissing off some of the cast. So where does everyone's favourite anti-Semite, sexist, violent drunkard go from here? Playing second fiddle to a puppet, that's where!

Review: Edge Of Darkness

Edge Of Darkness
It's been seven years since Mel Gibson last appeared in a movie, and while he's kept himself busy drink-driving and bringing the phrase "sugar tits" to prominence, the Jew-hating Aussie with a lack of respect for historical fact is finally back and it's... a thoroughly underwhelming experience.

Mad Mel returns in Edge Of Darkness
It's been a good week for Mel Gibson. First, his infamous Jew-hatin' rampage was expunged from his record. Now, the trailer for Edge Of Darkness has been released and everyone has remembered he's an actor.
