There’s a lot of interesting foreign films hitting this week, but the must have is easily Martin Scorsese’s The Wolf of Wall Street (though sadly, it doesn’t come with the reported, but also complete BS four hour cut that was rumored).

Well, here’s a remake with seemingly no demand whatsoever, and yet has somehow materialized via its own force of will: Bloodsport, the 1988 martial arts flick starring Jean-Claude Van Damme as the American martial artist Frank Dux, is getting a remake.  And it will be totally like the original, except for the fact that the original was loosely...

Because, frankly, what the world of cinema (and the world in general) needs now more than anything else is reboots of Jean-Claude Van Damme time-travel vehicles from the 1990s, the former action star’s Timecop is now getting a reboot.  Yes, Timecop, the film in which you could tell past and future Van Damme’s apart by the length of his mullet, and for...

The Expendables 2
With Thanksgiving this Thursday, there’s a paucity of new releases, partly because sales are going to be all about the discounts and deals that come with Black Friday. So there’s one new movie that’s actually pretty entertaining (The Expendables 2), one of the most famous bombs in the history of cinema, and a box set featuring most of the films of one of...

This week isn’t great for new releases, unless you’re a Tim Burton apologist, but it does have a classic Disney film, one of the best films of the last twenty years, and some great and not so great ghoulish delights. It must be October…

The Expendables 2: Movie Review

The Expendables 2
The roster of talent involved with the Expendables movies means that - even if the first picture was pretty terrible - there's a thrill that comes with the sequel. And it seems like The Expendables 2 knows the problems the first film had and decided that the best way to deliver a sequel is just make it a greatest hits of action icons doing...

The Expendables
Today, Sylvester Stallone returned to Comic-Con, and brought his action hero buddies with him. The Expendables 2 panel, which took place at the legendary Hall H, opened with a trailer, which ScreenCrush's Jordan Hoffman best described as a "roll call of action cinema's greatest heroes intercut with images of explosions and fisticuffs."

How do you screw up the excitement for the cheesy goodness that is The Expendables 2?  I mean, you’ve got an action film starring Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren, and Jason Statham—it’s going to be big, stupid fun, right?  So how do you knock the goodwill for the film down a peg?  You release a...

Brace yourselves, folks—you are about to witness the most testosterone-heavy 60 second clip you have ever, or likely will ever, witness.  Seriously, this thing is the visual equivalent of eating a pound of raw meat, going to the gym for an hour, and then challenging a stranger to a bloody streetfight.  Also, like those things, it’s kind of really dumb (but in a fun way).  What am I...

Despite the fact that this is a movie franchise based upon a film in which Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren starred as Vietnam-era soldiers who were killed and then turned into cyborgs who punch and kick each other a lot (I know, I know, it sounds like it should be cool, but it isn’t) Universal Soldier is somehow getting a...

What decade am I in? I feel like I just took a step 20 years into the past. Our favorite Belgian Jean-Claude Van Damme is starring in an upcoming action film entitled, The Eagle Path. I know it sounds deep, and the recently released trailer for it makes sure it looks as melodramatic as possible. Van Damme stars as Frenchy (yeah, I know) a taxi driver...

As I'm sure you already know, the Sylvester Stallone action flick The Expendables has become my own personal obsession. The film has an unbelievable cast, attached to a badass eighties action story. With Stallone, Jet Li, Jason Statham, Randy Couture, and Dolph Lundgren signed on to star, I had one major question, where's Jean Claude Van Damme?...
