From TFA:

"Escape Plan" is mostly a gray, thudding metal machine of throwback exploitation,

Thanks - I'll pass.

Which is exactly what one should expect from a Stallone / Arnold mash-up. I stand by it looks like fun.

What did you think of the Expendables?

Ooh, I can't WAIT to see how wonderfully aged my 80's action stars are now!

Jesus, Hollywood. Just find some new action heroes.

Re-read what you wrote there. Carefully. Now, let's all have a laugh at your expense.

Hollywood has no shame when it comes to rehashing the past. I can't wait until Robert Redford dies and we get the zombie version of Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Watched it last night - better than expected. Has plot twists, characters are fairly cookie cutter but that's to be expected when the movie covers such a short time.

Do they blow one another? Shoot 'roids in each other's buttocks?

I'll agree:  it was somewhat predictable but much better than I expected.

Indiana Jones and the Crystal Skulls was horrid because Harrison Ford looked like an 80 year old trying to move quickly and the editing crew trying very hard to make it look convincing, and it was unwatchable. The guy had a Dowager's hump practically. I would rather older actors either actually be in the shape to do x, y, and z and make us go "woah!" or pick roles suitable for their lives. I'll pass.

Have you -seen- Sly?  It's like he's got a running IV of HGH in him at all times.

Saw it yesterday for lunch at Alamo Drafthouse.  Enjoyable movie.  If you like Arnold action movies you'll like it.

Hard a burger w/ blue cheese + hot sauce, a coke, and a pint of Karbach's Karbachtoberfest.

For the last time, the '80s are OVER. It's time for these two to be put in the nursing home already.

/True, Arnie kept his movie career going through the '90s, but I still think of him as an embarrassing '80s leftover, like Mr. T or ALF

You have no idea how Hollywood (or any business) works, do you? Why would you just stop selling a product that consistently makes you metric assloads of money?

I'll give you that point for Stallone, whose movies somehow, to my unending perplexity, remain profitable, but it has been many years since Arnie made Hollywood "metric assloads of money". Did you see the box office numbers of his last movie? His film career is kaput.

Wait, isn't that the plot of this film? Up-and-coming action stars like Jeremy Renner and Karl Urban trick Sly and Ahnuld into getting trapped in a high-security assisted living facility? And they start openly planning a breakout, aided by the fact that none of the staff can understand a word they're saying?

Ahnuld: Prepah you-self! Dis iz de night we ah busting owt of heah!

Sly: Unnggghhh? Bud tuh-nite's spuh-geddy nite! Uh godda hab my carbs buh-fore duh break!

Staffmember: I need emergency help on floor 12 right now! I've got two geezers here having multiple strokes!

Saw Last Stand with Arnold starring and it was good. The clips on this look good and I'll see it. I happen to like who I like and I'd rather see them making movies than see another Ryan Reynolds or Ben Affleck horrid super hero movie. Get new action movie actors? Well, while they look for them there are the oldies but goodies still out there making good movies. Check out the clips for Grudge Match with Sly and De Niro, they aren't trying to be young guys, they're being old guys dealing with being old guys. Or maybe you want to see Green Lantern again or hop with excitement for Affleck as the Batman?

I for one think it's awesome that Stallone is trying to bring back just straight up good action movies. Kudos to him. I'll go see this. If anything to support this line of thinking. Movies that are just cool to watch. No heavy handed trying to be bigger than the world bullsh*t.
 
2013-10-20 02:45:35 PM
I'm ok with this. What I'm sick of is hollywoods inability to have male protagonists that look like they are older than 20.

I've seen more movies the last two years since moving down here then I had in ten years beforehand, all due to Alamo.  I can't imagine going to a regular movie theater ever again.

According to Mother Jones it's the most liberal movie in a long time.

Why Stallone and Schwarzenegger's New Action Flick Might Be the Most Left-Wing Film in Theaters

Go figure.
 
2013-10-20 06:09:10 PM
--I saw it yesterday. A little longer than it needed to be, but pretty enjoyable and worth the expense. When Arnie grabs the Big Gun from the helicopter and turns around with That Look in his eye, you know he's back and having fun. ;-)

What I really respect Sly for is his willingness to do some of the stuntwork, or all of it.  I feel that it adds another level to the shot because you can use actual angles rather than far away or quick-cuts which don't show detail.

And I'm a sucker for brainless 80s action films.

I saw it last Tuesday for free, and I thought it was awesome. Arnold was pretty great in it, the theater even applauded during a certain part.

Ever since I saw the first preview for this I've wanted to do a parody in which these two have dementia and they just think they're trying to get out of prison. Cut the movie with shots of each one's family talking to the nursing home staff about all the things Sly and Arnie keep trying to do because they're trying to escape.

/IDK...maybe it's just funny to me.

One bad movie doesn't kill a film career. Unless that movie is Glitter.

It never fails to amaze the amount of Farkers who will white knight a washed-up, roided-out bad-actor-turned-hack-politician, not to mention a serial philanderer who can't use a rubber.

Name me an entertainer that YOU admire, and i guarantee that any of us can point out several unsavory things about him or her that have nothing to do with their craft.

It never fails to amaze ME how many people spew fake rage over stuff that has no affect whatsoever on their lives in Internet comment sections. He's a movie star. He was the governor of a state. He was a champion body builder. People *gasp* seem to like him. All over the world.

But continue to flail around in your impotent rage. It makes you a much better person.
