  • The Last Stand vs Bullet To The Head: who's the ultimate action OAP?

    Movie Feature | Ali | 21st August 2012

    They're grumpy! They're old! Their muscles ache! But they're movie stars, damn it! After their two Expendables team-building exercises, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone are going head to head in early 2013 with competing action movies: The Last Stand and Bullet To The Head.

  • The definitive list of ridiculous action hero character names

    Movie Feature | Ali | 17th August 2012

    If you've seen The Expendables' IMDB page lately, you'll have seen the amazing character names in all their glory, but these are just the latest in the long, fine tradition of giving action stars the most ridiculous monikers possible. With that in mind, we present to you the cream of the crap: the most ludicrously macho characters ever named.

  • The Expendables 2

    Movie Review | Ali | 14th August 2012

    The Expendables 2 isn't a movie that exists in our conventional universe. Sure, it stars men of flesh and blood, who live and breathe and bleed, but it is not set in reality. It's an extreme cinematic experience – a 'movie movie', the kind which characters in Quentin Tarantino films enjoy.

  • Films on TV round-up: Stallone gets fat, Statham gets EVEN

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 19th February 2012

    To think that these two guys will share the same screen for the second time this year. How does one frame manage to cram in that much masculinity? Even in IMAX.

  • Films on TV round-up: gamma poisoning and Nazi footballers

    TV Feature | Ed Williamson | 22nd January 2012

    I wrote this on my phone while on the tube today. Lest it be forgotten, the guy who got on at Green Park and sat next to me, reading the Financial Times so expansively as to have his right hand more or less directly in front of my face throughout his entire journey, is a dick.

  • Exclusive pictures from The Expendables 2: PG-13 version

    Movie Feature | Ali | 20th January 2012

    As Sylvester Stallone reveals that Chuck Norris got his way and The Expendables 2 will be released as a PG-13 rated movie, we can exclusively reveal some leaked photos from the set of the movie. They weren't kidding: this one is aimed squarely at the teenage market.
