The Expendables 2
The Expendables are back and this time it’s personal… Barney Ross (Sylvester Stallone), Lee Christmas (Jason Statham), Yin Yang (Jet Li), Gunnar Jensen (Dolph Lundgren),Toll Road (Randy Couture) and Hale Caesar (Terry Crews) — with newest members Billy the Kid (Liam Hemsworth) and Maggie (Yu Nan) aboard — are reunited when Mr. Church (Bruce Willis) enlists the Expendables to take on a seemingly simple job. The task looks like an easy paycheck for Barney and his band of old-school mercenaries. But when things go wrong and one of their own is viciously killed, the Expendables are compelled to seek revenge in hostile territory where the odds are stacked against them. — (C) Lionsgate
I suppose if you enjoyed The Expendables, you will devour The Expendables 2. Me? Not so much. Don’t get me wrong, I loved the idea of a movie that gives you some 80’s throwback action with 80’s throwback stars. Five minutes in to The Expendables, I realized that as our aging action stars have aged, so have I. As Roger Murtaugh would say ” I’m too old for this shit”
I really didn’t want anything to do with the first one and the same holds true for this one. I really don’t know anyone that is interested in spending money on this trash. If you are planning to buy this, I have one question for you – why not just flush the money down the toilet? I’m sorry.
Cinderella 2: Dreams come true/Cinderella 3: A Twist in Time
Cinderella 2: The movie explores Cinderella’s “happily ever after” life as a princess in 3 stories, with help from the Fairy Godmother. First, Cinderella’s awkward first days at the palace, when she tried so hard to fit in that she forgot to be herself. Second, how Jaq felt so left out that he wished to be a human. Third, how Cinderella taught one of her nasty step-sisters how to smile which leads to her own true love.
Cinderella 3: Lady Tremaine gets her hands on the Fairy Godmother’s wand, then turns back time to the day Cinderella tried on the glass slipper. She enlarges the slipper to fit one of the step sisters, Anastasia, then erases Prince Charming’s memories of meeting Cinderella. Now, Cinderella must foil Lady Tremaine’s scheme and win back her prince.
I never even bother watching this straight to DVD Disney sequels. They are released solely to make money. That being said, little younglings don’t know any better. So have at it.
Maybe if I had a girl, this one would be a bit more appealing to me. That being said, I will not be purchasing this one, but for all of you out there with girls, this is a good deal in which you get 2 movies for $22.99 at Amazon.com!
That’s all we have for this week. Obviously, movie studios want you to concentrate on Black Friday and getting great deals on Blu-Rays. I’m all for it. Next week we have Lawless, Paranorman, The Apparition, and Step Up 4: Revolution. Have a great week and a very Happy Thanksgiving!
