Yowzabungeroonie. Thanks everyone, that was a ride. Feeling a bit odd about Benjamina’s departure. But Selasi was more entertaining than ever tonight. I love him so much. I almost wish I didn’t.

Until next week, my dears. See you for Patisserie, despite the absence of Valerie.Come say hello on twitter or instagram or in the real world if you happen upon me by chance and it isn’t weird. Also if you see me eating out of a bin, not then either.

Movie Review – Kickboxer: Vengeance (2016)

29 September 2016 2:55 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Kickboxer: Vengeance, 2016.

Directed by John Stockwell.

Starring Jean-Claude Van Damme, Dave Bautista, Alain Moussi, Sara Malakul Lane, T.J. Storm, Gina Carano, George St-Pierre, Matthew Ziff and Sam Medina.


A martial arts fighter seeks revenge after his brother is killed in the ring.

It’s been a long time coming and now it is finally here, as Jean-Claude Van Damme (Kickboxer/Bloodsport) returns to the franchise that initially made him a star back in the late 1980s. However, this time Jcvd is playing the master instead of the pupil as Kickboxer: Vengeance is a straight-up remake of the 1989 VHS hit, with newcomer Alain Moussi in Van Damme’s original role of Kurt Sloane, a man who witnesses his kickboxing brother Eric (the late Darren Shehlavi) getting killed in the ring by the fearsome underground fighting champion Tong Po (Spectre’s Dave Bautista). Fuelled by revenge, Kurt is forced into hiding »

Arrow Season 5 Trailer: A Killer Oliver, Felicity's Beau, Dig Returns and More

28 September 2016 10:22 AM, PDT | | See recent news »

Oliver Queen is, once again, a killing machine.

In a new trailer for Arrow Season 5, the masked hero puts death-by-lethal force back on the table, which is a “a huge step backwards,” in Thea’s opinion.

Fantastic Fest 2016: cannibals, floating heads and Dolph Lundgren

28 September 2016 8:52 AM, PDT | The Guardian - Film News | See recent The Guardian - Film News news »

The raucous alternative during festival season boasted world premieres of new Tim Burton and M Night Shyamalan films – but the oddities made it unique

Moments after the world premiere of A Dark Song, a touching Irish film about loss and forgiveness, I was on a school bus headed to a boxing gym where two men fought about the virtues of Rocky IV. This is a fairly typical set of back-to-back events at Austin’s Fantastic Fest, a marriage of the smartest and edgiest in international cinema blended with madcap hijinks (festival co-founder Tim League introduced Morgan Spurlock’s documentary Rats by gobbling a bowl of cooked rat with his own bare hands. Has Cannes’ Thierry Fremaux done this? I think not!). If cinephilia has a Burning Man, it’s this annual event, which lands smack dab in the oh-so-serious autumn cycle of the Venice, Telluride, Toronto and New York film festivals. »

Potd: Sylvester Stallone Shares Some Rare ‘Rocky IV’ Behind the Scenes Photos

27 September 2016 6:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

You may not have realized it yet, but this year marks the 40th anniversary of Rocky. The film release in November of 1976 went on to win Best Picture, and it’s easily Sylvester Stallone‘s greatest contribution to cinema. Recently the franchise has taken a new form with the successful spin-off Creed, and we’re still hoping […]

Classic Action Stars: Who truly is the best?

26 September 2016 2:01 AM, PDT | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

With Jean-Claude Van Damme hitting the big screen this month in Kickboxer: Vengeance (a remake of his 1989 smash hit) we decided to find out who is the greatest of the legendary Eighties action heroes. Who kicked hardest, fought longest and has the staying power to be the last man standing? Let the fight begin!

Sylvester Stallone

Evidence: Sylvester Stallone is not only an enduring action star of note – from Rambo and Rocky, Cobra to Cliffhanger, right through to The Expendables, Sly has always set the box office cash tills ringing; but he is also an Oscar-nominated writer, a director, and even a painter. There is, it seems, very little he cannot do.

Verdict: Stallone is more rennaisance man than action hero king.

Dolph Lundgren

Evidence: At 6ft 5 and built like a Sherman tank, Swedish powerhouse Lundgren has taken on James Bond and Rocky, played The Punisher, a Universal Soldier and was one of The Expendables. »

Dolph Lundgren Helps Set the Record Straight on ‘Rocky IV’ — Fantastic Fest Video

24 September 2016 10:46 AM, PDT | Indiewire | See recent Indiewire news »

While most of America was anticipating the historic showdown of Hillary vs. Donald, on Friday night in Austin, it all came down to Dolph Lundgren. At Fantastic Fest’s famous “Fantastic Feuds” event, a heated conversation about whether or not “Rocky IV” was the best boxing movie of all time was abruptly resolved when no less than the beefy action star himself — aka Russian villain Ivan Drago in “Rocky IV” — walked through a curtain of smoke to set the record straight for good.

The crowd shrieked and hollered as an American flag waved in the ring. No, this wasn’t some ill-advised sketch comedy set envisioning a rally of redneck cinephiles supporting Arthouse Trump, but rather the essence of the silly-serious approach to movie fandom that Fantastic Fest uniquely conjures up.

The Alamo Drafthouse-hosted genre festival showcases edgy storytelling from around the world, but it also brings that sensibility to the ring. »

Dolph Lundgren Set To Guest Star On Arrow

11 August 2016 2:35 PM, PDT | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

You know, if there's something that's been missing from good ol' Arrow (besides quality), it's a good Russian villain. Well, it turns out I'm in luck, because at the TV Critics Association press tour, it was announced that Dolph Lundgren, who famously depicted Russian boxer Ivan Drago in Rocky IV, will be joining Arrow in Season 5 of the show.

The goods don't stop there, however. Not only will Lundgren be in the series, but he'll be playing a villain in a flashback set in (wait for it) Russia. I kind of feel sorry for the guy, since he apparently will never live down playing a Russian, but regardless, I'm happy to see him hop into the show. Given his action background and his decent acting chops, I'm curious to see who he'll play and what he'll bring to the table.

Of course, my first question, above all else, is, "who will he be playing? »
