Q & A with Sheldon Lettich By Marco A. S. Freitas (Guest Post)

29 November 2012 5:14 AM, PST | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Born in the Big Apple in january of 1951, Sheldon Lettich moved with his family to the West Coast at a young age. After finishing High School, he joined the Marine Corps, serving his country for four years, one of them as a Radio Operator in Vietnam.

Partially based upon his experiences in Southeast Asia, he co-authored Tracers, a play seen in the Los Angeles, New York City, Chicago and London stages, to great acclaim; It subsequently won the prestigious Drama Desk and L.A. Drama Critics Awards.

The writing of screenplays seemed like a natural progression and his writing eventually began attracting the attention of many Hollywood producers.

Since then, Lettich has become known as expert in testosterone-driven action extravaganzas, many of the films starring some of the silver screen´s best-loved slugfest protagonists:  Sylvester Stallone (Sheldon shared screenwriting credit with Sly in the third cinematic episode of the Rambo series, »

17 September 2012 1:22 PM, PDT | AsianMoviePulse | See recent AsianMoviePulse news »

Six Of The Best – Films from the Cast of the Expendables

31 August 2012 5:00 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

The Expendables are back in cinemas this month – more muscles, more mayhem, moderate self-awareness.

Part of the appeal of the franchise (can we call it that now?) is that it harks back to how we first got to know a lot of these actors – ridiculous, one-man-army plots, explosions, guns, one-liners and frankly, lots of fun.

Since the sort of guff a lot of these guys churned out around the 80′s (Raw Deal, Over the Top, Cobra, The Punisher, Dark Angel, Code of Silence, Lone Wolf McQuade, Kickboxer, Awol, Red Sonja, Black Eagle etc), they have mostly gone on to bigger and better(?) things. But there is a place for celebrating where these guys have come from, especially since they are playing on that background in gathering them together now.

Rather than try to look back at the critical high points of some of the Expendables (that would be a very »

The Anti-Expendables: 10 Bad Guys Who Should Team Up Against Sly and the Gang

19 August 2012 11:54 AM, PDT | FilmSchoolRejects.com | See recent FilmSchoolRejects news »

2010′s The Expendables gave fans of iconic action hero badasseration a taste of what it would be like to experience some of our favorite face punching, public property demolishing, one-liner dropping stars of recent yesteryear share the big screen. It was over the top, explodey good times. Stallone, Li, Crews, Statham, Lundgren, Couture, and Rourke were a fun sample course. Sly, never being one to shy away from sequels (still waiting on Cliffhanger: Hang Some More), poured moonshine in the formula and give us more Schwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, and the perpetual awesomeness that is Chuck Norris in The Expendables 2.   Even better, the villain finally gets an equal measure of excellence in the form of The Muscles from that Place in Belgium, Jean-Claude Van Damme. Sorry Eric Roberts, I love you but...Sharktopus. Still, one Jcvd chair-splits punch alone isn’t enough to compete with those  three decades worth of action superstars, and »

Jcvd: 'Double Impact 2' Script Is Written

8 August 2012 1:20 PM, PDT | NextMovie | See recent NextMovie news »

"Double Impact" is arguably one of action legend Jean-Claude Van Damme's best films, for two reasons: It's got double the Van Dammage and another face-off against the great Bolo Yeung (who played his "Bloodsport" nemesis).

When we met Jcvd last week, we took the opportunity to ask him about the "Double Impact" days -- and Van Damme began to gush about the possibility of  a sequel.

"I wrote the script with a friend of mine Sheldon - He [co-wrote] "Bloodsport" and "Double Impact" with me," he told us. "Hopefully, somebody smart enough, like an agent or a producer, can put that back together...I'm excited about it, you know?"

One of the things Van Damme stressed was the lack of franchises in his career: "I have no franchise. I lost 'Bloodsport,' 'Lionheart.'"

"'Double Impact' [would be] a great franchise," he told us, explaining how he thinks »

Cung Le is a fighting machine, anyone who steps in his way will feel the full force of his brutal back kick and many wont be getting up from it. I have always been impressed with his fighting ability and whenever he enters the octagon he always brings 100% to each fight, which makes him an exciting fighter to watch.

Cung Le, a Vietnamese American, was born in Saigon, South Vietnam (now Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam). In 1975, three days before the Fall of Saigon, Cung Le and his mother Anne left Vietnam by helicopter under heavy gunfire. He ended up in San Jose, »

B3K Movie of the Day: Shootfighter (1993)

24 July 2012 2:38 PM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Any film that features Van Damme’s Bloodsport nemesis Bolo Yeung in a starring role alongside former Karate Kid bad-guy William Zabka has to be worth watching right? Right! Shootfighter is one of the many direct to video action movies that proliferated video stores in the early 90s and as such it has become somewhat of an overlooked classic – so much so that is actually warranted a sequel, Shootfighter 2, which once agian starred Bolo Yeung as the hero, three years later…

Shingo is the world’s Shootfighter champion, a skilled and deadly combat sport where only one man leaves the ring alive. Nick and Ruben are two of Shingo’s prized students; students who he hopes someday can take his place as Champion. But Shingo has his share of enemies, including the evil Mr. Lee, who has a personal grudge against the world’s reigning champion. Mr. Lee hoodwinks Nick »

Special Features - Jean-Claude Van Damme: The Second Coming

14 May 2012 5:47 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the second coming of Jean-Claude Van Damme in The Expendables 2 and the muscular thunder he looks set to steal...

Jean-Claude Van Damme was just a fresh faced young Belgian with a pocket full of dreams when he left his home to try his luck in America... and his pockets had plenty of rooms for dreams, as he came with barely a penny to his name before slogging his guts out to superstardom. It’s a story of an action star that is not entirely unique to Jean-Claude. Arnold Schwarzenegger’s was similar and so was Dolph Lundgren’s. Genuine rags to riches tales from the land of opportunity. Hitting it big in films like Bloodsport and Kickboxer, the 90s proved particularly fruitful for Van Damme as the likes of Universal Soldier and Timecop launched him to the A-list, and shoulder-to-shoulder with the big earning action guys like Arnold, »
