Hot Toys' Tony Stark with Arc Reactor Creation 1/6th Scale Set

18 December 2014 11:17 AM, PST | GeekTyrant | See recent GeekTyrant news »

After jumping in the water first and making such a big splash with the first Iron Man film, it seemed like Jon Favreau was forced to awkwardly tread the same same water in Iron Man 2 so as to not swim too far ahead of the origin films for Captain America and Thor, which were a solid year or more away. The stakes didn’t seem high enough, and all the groundwork being laid for the eventual Avengers team up just wasn’t as fun as it could have been. Even though Iron Man 2 had its missteps — pretty much everyone involved in the making of that film, including Favreau and Robert Downey, Jr., have acknowledged its flaws — it had some extraordinary set pieces and very iconic imagery. Who granted Mickey Rourke’s requests to do scenes in his underwear? Yeah, that was Favs. But who made a scene involving »

DVD Review – Sin City: A Dame to Kill For (2014)

15 December 2014 4:19 AM, PST | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, 2014.

Directed by Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller.

Starring Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Bruce Willis, Rosario Dawson, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Ray Liotta, Dennis Haysbert, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Jaime King, Juno Temple, Christopher Lloyd, Lady Gaga, Stacy Keach and Jamie Chung.

Synopsis:

Some of Sin City’s most hard-boiled citizens cross paths with a few of its more reviled inhabitants.

Innovation should be rewarded. Experimentation should be commended. For those two reasons I’m awarding the second Sin City film two stars. There are reasons to celebrate the cinematic adaptation of Frank Miller’s neo-noir series of graphic novels. They are garish mash ups of old stories and new technology. Visually interesting pieces of crime fiction that expose almost every cliche the genre ever created.

I was pretty tough on the first Sin City. I admired what it aspired »

‘Sin City: A Dame to Kill For’ Blu-ray 3D Review

14 December 2014 9:58 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Mickey Rourke, Jessica Alba, Josh Brolin, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, Bruce Willis, Eva Green, Powers Boothe, Dennis Haysbert, Ray Liotta, Christopher Meloni, Jeremy Piven, Christopher Lloyd, Jaime King, Juno Temple | Written by Frank Miller | Directed by Robert Rodriguez, Frank Miller

It was an invite to review a Blu-ray like any other, or so I thought. You get your disc, you take your chances. Sometimes everyone goes home with a smile on their faces, sometimes people go to the emergency room… without any face. I heard from the people that know that a sequel to Frank Miller and Robert Rodriguez’s Sin City was in town. Looking for trouble. Out to bust some heads and blow some minds. Sin City and me, we go way back. We had history. Once we’d been lovers but time had moved us apart. So when this new bozo turns up, A Dame to Kill For, »

6 Scenes We Love From ‘Beverly Hills Cop’

1 December 2014 11:00 AM, PST | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

It’s hard to imagine Beverly Hills Cop being a vehicle for anyone but Eddie Murphy, but he was a last minute replacement after Sylvester Stallone dropped out and before him Mickey Rourke bailed, as well (for more trivia see what we learned from the DVD commentary). This week marks the 30th anniversary of the action comedy, which propelled Murphy to certain movie stardom while maintaining the #1 spot at the box office through March of 1985 (it’s still one of the three longest-running box office champs of all time). We all fell in love with Axel Foley, his laugh and his theme song by Harold Faltermeyer (who else taught themselves to play it on a piano despite no other skill with the keys?). Never mind if the two sequels that followed are a mess, the original is still an ’80s movie classic. To celebrate the movie on its birthday (it opened on Wednesday, December »

Mickey Rourke ‘Wins’ a Boxing Match in Moscow for the First Time in 20 Years

29 November 2014 3:18 PM, PST | Vulture | See recent Vulture news »

Mickey Rourke jumped back into the boxing ring in Moscow yesterday for his first fight in 20 years. The 62-year-old actor defeated Elliot Seymour, a man 33 years his junior, in two rounds of an exhibition match. The internet has been abuzz with allegations of match fixing, or, simply, that it was just a publicity stunt. Yes, if you watch the video below, the whole thing looks staged (I mean, it did take place in Russia). But some observations: 1) It was an exhibition, so the whole thing is about publicity anyway; 2) his opponent has a 1–9 record, so, yikes; but, finally, 3) he's 62 years old, was a former boxer, then played a washed-up wrestler in an Oscar-nominated role, and now he's back in the ring after losing, like, a million pounds (okay, 35). So whatever, just roll with it. »

Mickey Rourke has been lauded for his acting talent in “The Wrestler,” which is about an aging wrestling star who works towards one last chance at redemption.

Rourke recently fought in an exhibition match in Moscow. Rourke, who had retired from amateur boxing 20 years ago, fought against former California Golden Gloves champ Elliot Seymour.
