The ultimate mercenary crew embark on the ultimate mission.
I love action films. It’s a grand statement I know to actually have love for a genre. But I really love action films, almost romantic love; I get excited when I’m going to see a new one, I plan evenings to watch a few of them and look forward to such an event. I love classics like Akira Kuwrosawa’s Seven Samurai as much as I love fan-boy wet dream flicks like Universal Soldier Regeneration, which for the uninitiated is Universal Soldier 3 (yes you read that right and its really good, Dolph and Jean Claude are in it too). So imagine »

“Somtum” has all the potential in the world, but ultimately ends up as kind of a mess. Nathan Jones (“Tom-Young-Goong”, “The Condemned”) stars as Barney Emerald, a down on his luck Australian giant, who wins third place in a contest. This is one hell of a contest because third place, the bronze medal, is a trip to Thailand. That’s not a bad consolation prize. A life-long loser, Barney thinks his luck has changed. He couldn’t be more wrong. On his first night of vacation he gets drugged, robbed, and left barefoot and shirtless in a foreign country with no money and no passport. At 6’11 and 360 pounds, Jones is a towering freak of a human being. His life has been nothing if not interesting. At one time he pulled off a string of bank robberies, and was one of Australia’s most wanted men. In prison he became a power lifter, »

In the quest to get more crappy movies out the public even faster, The Hollywood Reporter has it that WWE Studios will start filming movies back to back in order to cut down on production costs. This is great news for wrestling minions who can.t wait to see John Cena and Stone Cold Steve Austin flex their muscles on the big screen in critically acclaimed classics like The Marine and The Condemned. It.s terrible news for people who like their films, umm, what.s the word I.m looking for? Oh yeah: Good. There is a part of me here that respects WWE.s strategy. In the same vein as their television wrestling, the movie studio will just inundate the viewer with quantity over quality. Heck, if you throw enough crap at the wall, some of it is bound to stick. WWE has a history of working its »
Vince McMahon knows no bounds. After failing with his own football league and bodybuilding league, he has been trying to break into the mainstream entertainment industry with his own film company, WWE Studios. If you have had a chance to watch any of these movies, I apologize... unless it happened to be The Condemned which was awesome. The latest announcement, posted on AOL  earlier today, concerns an entirely new medium: television. Santino Marella, an over the top comedy act with a heavy Italian accent, is going to be the subject of a new sitcom. The show, which also stars WWE stars Beth Phoenix (who will play his girlfriend, much like she did on Monday Night Raw) and Vladamir Koslov, will first start off on WWE.com and then will be shopped to other networks. I know wrestling isn't "cool" anymore, but Santino Marella is one of, if not the most, »
One month, 280 films and 70,000 words later, my guide to the films of 2010 is now complete. I hope you've enjoyed reading it all - it's been utterly exhausting but an ultimately rewarding venture I've been single-handedly pulling together since early December. If you have liked it, my only request is that you help spread the word about it now that it's all done.
If you're a fellow blogger or site owner, please give it a plug on your site. If you're a reader, give it a mention on Facebook, Twitter or other online places you might venture. A lot of effort went into this, the greatest reward so far has been seeing it talked about and hearing your reactions. I'm glad many of you have gotten a lot of use out of the previous pages, so I hope you enjoy this final part:
