Female Fight Squad DVD Review

8 August 2017 7:30 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Ever since Ronda Rousey stepped into the Octogan and took the world by storm, Female Mma has gone to a whole new level.  Everyone from Ufc to Hollywood is trying to cash in on this new wave of female athletes.  Female Fight Squad is the latest attempt from Hollywood to capitalize on the swelling popularity of Women's Mma.  Starring martial artist, and stunt performer, Amy Johnston as the main lead, Rebecca, in a prototypical fight movie. A retired fighter must get back into the ring to save a loved one from a debt they owe. As any good throwback fighting movie it is only natural to cast an actor from the 80's or 90's.  Dolph Lundgren is that actor who stars in this movie, and doesn't overshadow the story at all.

The plot of the movie is nothing we haven't already seen from any Mma/fighting movie. A former fighter, »

Sylvester Stallone Wishes Arnold Schwarzenegger a Happy 70th Birthday With Heartfelt Speech

30 July 2017 3:05 PM, PDT | Entertainment Tonight | See recent Entertainment Tonight news »

Sylvester Stallone and Arnold Schwarzenegger are true #friendshipgoals.

Stallone posted a portion of his speech to longtime pal (and sometimes rival) Arnold Schwarzenneger on Monday, in honor of the star's 70th birthday.

Holding the mic, Stallone compliments his friend, "You don't quit, you don't quit, and you still don't quit. It's boundless energy."

He also couldn't help but add in a little dig. "But, you've been a fantastic enemy and a better friend," he joked. "That's all I can say bro. Congratulations."

The two later hugged it out with big smiles.

One day earlier, 71-year-old Stallone shared a side by side pic on Instagram of the two stars at their buffest back in the day, adding the caption "Pre - Happy Birthday Arnold!!!! As long as you live and beyond, you're always going to be the "Big Man " who set the bar so high that it will never be surpassed, an action »

Rambo Reboot: Sylvester Stallone Won’t Be A Part Of First Blood, Eyeing 2018 Start For Creed 2

17 July 2017 2:33 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

Similar to how Harrison Ford has circled back to portray a number of famous roles from yesteryear (see: Blade Runner 2049, Indiana Jones 5), Hollywood veteran Sylvester Stallone is no stranger to indulging in a little nostalgia from time to time, too – even if that nostalgia takes on the form of a tongue-in-cheek ensemble movie in the vein of The Expendables.

Case in point: Creed, Ryan Coogler’s Rocky spinoff movie that took that fundamental underdog story, slapped on a new lick of paint, and delivered a powerful, moving boxing film revolving around one Adonis Johnson (Michael B. Jordan).

Balancing the old with the new, Coogler’s hard-hitting drama still made room for Stallone’s Rocky Balboa, who assumed the role of a mentor/father figure to coach the young, unrefined Adonis into a bona fide world beater. That arc will continue through the release of Creed 2, which is expected »

Jay Baruchel interview: Chapterhouse Comics, Goon 2, Statham

11 July 2017 12:13 PM, PDT | Den of Geek | See recent Den of Geek news »

Duncan Bowles Jul 17, 2017

Jay Baruchel chats to us about comics, X-Men movies, Goon 2 and Jason Statham...

Jay Baruchel is a very happy man indeed. Over the last decade, I’ve been fortunate enough to interview a lot of people for Den of Geek, but Mr Baruchel might just be the most enthusiastic one to date – almost every sentence ended with the kind of joyous laugh that would come from having, quite possibly, the best job ever, twice. Known to most as an actor with a gift for the comedic, having starred in the likes of Tropic Thunder, Knocked Up, Goon, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice and The Art Of The Steal (to name a few personal favourites) as well as voicing accidental hero Hiccup in the fantastic How To Train Your Dragon movies, it was about his recent involvement with Canadian comic book publisher, Chapterhouse, that we had a chat with him about. »

Jeremy Renner Says He Broke Both His Arms Doing A Stunt On Tag, Not Infinity War [Updated]

7 July 2017 12:00 PM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Update: THR now reports that Renner actually broke his arms on the set of Tag, not Avengers: Infinity War.

Movie sets can be dangerous places. Sometimes people get injured and sometimes people die. Cameraman Conway Wickliffe was killed on the set of The Dark Knight in 2007, when the pickup truck driving parallel to a stunt car crashed into a tree. On 2012's The Avengers, stuntman Jeremy Fitzgerald slammed into a pile of bricks and tore off a chunk of his scalp. But, not even the actors themselves are out of harm's way. On the set of The Expendables, Sylvester Stallone injured his neck so badly during a fight scene with Steve Austin that he required a metal plate inserted into his neck during surgery. It happens, but thankfully today's news is not a death.

Variety reports that while filming Avengers: Infinity War, Jeremy Renner said he "broke his arms" during a stunt. »

“Boys, oh boys… I think he’s come back for his noon feeding.” – Matt Hooper

On June 20, 1975 a thriller from a relatively unknown filmmaker was unleashed on unsuspecting theatre goers. That summer saw the birth of the blockbuster, the likes of which had never been seen before in cinemas.

Shark films are seemingly all the rage now. Last year was The Shallows, 1999 was the super fun Deep Blue Sea, this past weekend was the release of 47 Meters Down and in 2018 comes the intriguing Meg from Warner Bros. Pictures.

The science fiction action thriller Meg, directed by Jon Turteltaub, stars Jason Statham (“Spy,” “Furious 7,” “The Expendables” films) and Chinese actress Li Bingbing and is slated for release on March 2, 2018.

The Rise of the Disposable Character

12 May 2017 4:00 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Tom Jolliffe on the rise of the disposable character…

In recent years there has been a huge rise in the ensemble blockbuster. Films such as Avengers Assemble or the Fast and Furious franchise have popularized the ensemble piece and there seems no sign of this slowing down. Even now in the Marvel universe with standalone films there is a tendency to throw in cameo or supporting roles to other McU characters. Spider-Man’s latest reboot of course will have a significant supporting role for Tony Stark, and undoubtedly do some setting up in preparation for Avengers: Infinity War.

Okay it may be exciting for comic book nerds to see all their favourites appear within the same film. Or perhaps a die hard fan of a lesser known Marvel character may enjoy the luxury of seeing their hero appear even briefly, when there might not be quite the demand for their own standalone film. »
