Updated: I’m bumping this back to the top. It’s an old entry from 2012 when this site was still a blog. It’s simply a warning: Do not see this crap. It’s not a first draft, but it’s close enough. After reading the script to RoboCop (2014) today, which should last 130 minutes or so, it’s clear now why this movie was delayed untill February 2014. The production stills that have people talking should be the ...

I think everyone here can agree that 2014’s The Expendables 3 was a bust, considering it was highly anticipated by fans of the old 80’s – 90’s action guard… only to be let down by a two-hit KO by its weak “young blood” cast, and then further by its PG-13 rating which only hampered down the action sequences. We expected great things from the film, considering that a lot of the actors in there weren’t getting any younger, and their ...
