  • I'm going to make Demolition Man 2 happen, just watch, I'll bloody do it

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 8th August 2017

    This isn't going to be one of those cringeworthy, 'Dear Hollywood, you should make a sequel to one of my favourite movies, so here is my idea for that sequel, so let me know when you are planning to make it' type fan posts. No. This is an entirely serious discussion about the viability of a Demolition Man sequel, complete with my proposal for a sequel, along with- shit, wait, that's exactly what it is.

  • Create your own Expendables villain!

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray, Luke Whiston | 15th August 2014

    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.

  • 50 fun facts you didn't know about The Expendables or maybe you did

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 11th August 2014

    You'd think by now, with three Expendables movies under his Expendabelt, we'd know all there is to know about Sylvester Stallone, Barney Ross and his motley crew of mercenaries. You'd be wrong: DEAD WRONG. Because they are mysteries wrapped in enigmas wrapped in delicious sausagemeat. Here are 50 things you could never conceivably have known about The Expendables, you close-minded little shrimps.

  • The Expendables 3

    Movie Review | Becky Suter | 6th August 2014

    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.

  • Expendables stand in front of and on top of large truck during gun-fight

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 6th June 2014

    I can't help but think standing behind it might be a smarter idea while under heavy fire, but then I'm not an Expendable and I never will be.

  • It's like all The Expendables died

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 3rd April 2014

    These new Expendables 3 posters make it look like the entire cast died of an unexpected heart attack en masse. Especially if you listen to this.

  • Grudge Match

    Movie Review | Ed Williamson | 24th January 2014

    You join me as I battle the triple threat of fatigue, hangover and a burgeoning cold in attempting to semi-satisfactorily review Grudge Match in the two hours I have before I collapse. This tight schedule is caused by a three-night midweek run in which I saw the film, then contributed drunkenly to Team Shiznit's glorious triumph at the Picturehouse Podcast Comedy Film Quiz, and now am attempting to write the review by the release date. Now, when a film is press-screened three days before it comes out, you fear the worst, but they needn't have worried: Grudge Match is pretty good fun when it bothers trying.

  • In pictures: Why Sly Stallone and Richard Gere don't get on

    Movie Feature | Ali Gray | 14th December 2013

    While researching a feature for some place else, I stumbled on a truly amazing Sylvester Stallone anecdote about the time he pissed off Richard Gere on the set of grammatically dubious teen movie, The Lord's Of Flatbush. I decided to illustrate it for your viewing pleasure. Read this in his voice and it's ten times more amazing.

  • Bullet To The Head

    Movie Review | Ali | 27th January 2013

    The best thing about Bullet To The Head is that it is only 91 minutes long. I've watched so many three-hour, awards-worthy epics this month, I was expecting the final fight between Sylvester Stallone and villain Jason Momoa to be the catalyst that actually gets the story started. Brevity is hardly a big selling point, but know this: Bullet To The Head is short, sharp and to the point, if the point is Sly Stallone punching, kicking and stabbing people quite violently.
