Show Premise

“Out of the Crossfire, beyond Hardball, this is Crossballs!”

A parody of political debate shows, Crossballs has comedians pose as experts in their field to discuss the issue of the day and pits them against real life experts who are not aware of the farce debate they are participating in. The comedians argue both sides of an issue, be it ridiculous or not, and mine comedy from taking the issue to absurd lengths and goading reactions from the real experts.

Each episode is moderated by Chris Tallman (as a Chris Matthews type), who introduces

The Frightening Truth About Steven Seagal's Career

Steven Seagal has made only one horror movie to date, and that was 2009's Against the Dark, in which he had a cameo that found him beating off vampires. Yet, here at Dread Central we've been known to cover the world of the bizarre and the paranormal. You're about to learn something about Seagal that is beyond bizarre...

Did you ever notice the strangest thing about Seagal movie titles is that they tell a story in order of their release? No? Check IMDb if you don't believe. Sit back, dear reader, and allow me to take you on a strange trip filled with action, madmen, and revenge.

Steven Seagal was Above The Law, but he was too Hard To Kill so now he's been Marked For Death by Jamaicans who are Out For Justice. Can he live while Under Siege and On Deadly Ground? Could you survive while Under Siege

Special Features - The Expendables 3: Where Stallone could / should take the third instalment

Tom Jolliffe looks at the possibilities for The Expendables 3....

The dust had barely settled from the first time eyes were laid upon a print of The Expendables 2 before rumours of the third film started flying around. Long before the final box office takings had been registered it seemed that the third was more or less a done deal. Of course the second one, like the first, was a huge hit. Now the first film had plenty of flaws. The second had just as many, though a more consistent tone, and bigger scope. So with yet more rumours about what’s to come, who’s in, who’s out in the third and possibly final (though I doubt it) Expendables outing this week, I take a look at what we have heard thus far, and perhaps what fans will hope for.

The key thing for the next film isn

Book Review: ‘Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal’

Chicago – Vern started his career as one of those snarky critics who wrote in to Harry Knowles’ landmark and influential movie website Ain’t It Cool News. He became a regular writer for the site and his work there turned him into a very unorthodox author. His first book was a fantastic examination of, believe it or not, the career of Steven Seagal. Newly updated with a dozen new chapters about the recent adventures of his subject matter (the first printing was in 2008), “Seagalogy: A Study of the Ass-Kicking Films of Steven Seagal” is a funny, clever read for fans of the unusual action star and those who have never seen one of his movies. Vern’s movie-loving, smart, enjoyable writing makes this a more entertaining experience than Seagal himself has ever produced.

Don’t worry. This is not tongue-in-cheek nonsense. To say that Vern takes his subject matter seriously would be a Massive understatement.

DVD Review - Street Wars (2011)

Street Wars, 2011.

Directed by Keoni Waxman.

Starring Steven Seagal, Kyle Cassie & Peter Graham-Gaudreau.

Synopsis:

Elijah Kane (Steven Seagal), the head of a crack undercover police unit, leads his team in a race against time to bring to justice the cold blooded gang flooding the Seattle streets with a lethal drug.

Steven Seagal has ventured from movies into the world of TV with varying success. Of late, big Papa has looked a little weary in his film outings. When once he snapped many a neck with aplomb and gusto, he now doesn’t seem to have much heart for the job in hand. Obliterating evil doers just doesn’t seem to fill Steve-o with the sense of pride and fulfilment that it used to. Seagal’s first foray into TV, was the reasonably successful fly on the wall docu, Lawman. The show, kind of like Cops, with Steven Seagal, followed the ponytailed Adonis (well,

DVD Review: Death Race 2

Death Race 2

Stars: Luke Goss, Danny Trejo, Tanit Phoenix, Robin Shou, Ving Rhames, Sean Bean | Written by Tony Giglio | Directed by Roel Reine

This prequel to 2008’s Death Race (itself a remake of Roger Corman’s cult classic Death Race 2000) tells the origin story of Frankenstein, the helmet-clad racer defeated by Jason Statham in the first movie, as he progresses through Death Match – yes, that’s right, Death Race 2 does not start out with the eponymous race, but rather a brutal televised show that pits the felons of Terminal Island against each other in hand to hand combat. It’s only when ratings dip, and the fact that the prison has plenty of cars in its scrapyard, that the Death Race is born…

There were many people that decried this proposed prequel to a film which already had a limited built-in audience, but for me there were

Bristol Palin responds to Margaret Cho's charge that her mother forced her to do 'Dwts'

Bristol Palin responds to Margaret Cho's charge that her mother forced her to do 'Dwts'
If there’s one thing the Palin family knows how to do, it’s fire back. On Saturday night, Bristol Palin posted a 655-word retort to Margaret Cho’s Nov. 29 blog post titled “Pistol Whipped” claiming that she heard from someone who “really should seriously know the dirt really really” that Bristol only did Dancing With the Stars because Sarah Palin forced her to do it. “Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly (in the circles that I heard it from) for not winning the election,” Cho wrote, “and so she told Bristol she ‘owed’ it to her to do

Bristol Palin Strikes Back at Margaret Cho

"Really, Margaret? Really?" Bristol Palin wrote in response to her former "Dancing with the Stars" competitor Margaret Cho. Cho posted a blog titled "Pistol Whipped" that said that "the only reason Bristol was on the show was because Sarah Palin forced her to do it." The comedian continued on saying that "Sarah supposedly blames Bristol harshly and openly ... for not winning the election,and so she told Bristol she 'owed' it to her to do 'Dwts' so that 'America would fall in love with her again.'" Bristol, 20, reacted to the blog by putting up her own post, writing: "Let me be blunt: my mom did not 'force' me to go on 'Dwts.' She did not ask me either. The show approached me. I thought about it. I made the decision. After first worrying for me in terms of being exposed to those who hate us for what we believe in,

New Trailer For Death Race 2 – Racing Straight To DVD!

Death Race 2 is a sequel I don’t think anyone saw coming. I find it hard to imagine there were many people who after watching the first and very average instalment of Paul W.S. Anderson’s prison racing film felt like they needed more – but for those that did, you are in for a treat as this film offers more of the same convict-racing carnage and little else!

Jason Statham and Joan Allen won’t be returning in this straight to DVD sequel but have been replaced by (arguably) a stronger cast of Sean Bean, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo and Luke Goss.

Paul W.S. Anderson also was too busy making bigger budget features (Resident Evil: Afterlife) to return as director but stays on as writer and producer of the film. Roel Reine has replaced him and has several less then successful films under his belt; including the straight to

First trailer for ‘Death Race: Frankenstein Lives’

Bloody Disgusting have unveiled the first trailer for Death Race: Frankenstein Lives, which is directed by Roel Reiné, who was responsible for the Steven Seagal flick Pistol Whipped and the WWE Films sequel The Marine 2; with a script from writer/director Tony Giglio who previously found success with his Dtv 80’s slasher throwback Timber Falls.

Death Race 2 takes place in the very near future, as the United States economy begins to decline and violent crime starts to spiral out of control. To contain the growing criminal population, a vast network of for-profit, private prisons springs up, creating a lawless subculture ruled by gangs, cold-blooded killers and sociopaths. The worst of these prisons is Terminal Island. Convicted cop-killer Carl Lucas arrives on the Island to serve his life sentence just as ruthlessly ambitious television personality September Jones launches the ultimate reality show, Death Race.

Thoughts on... Nazi Dawn (2008)

Nazi Dawn, a.k.a. Black Ops, a.k.a. Deadwater, 2008

Directed by Roel Reiné

Starring Lance Henriksen, Gary Stretch, James Russo and Katherine Randolph

Synopsis:

A dark and ghostly wartime secret is about to be uncovered when a battle between good and evil breaks out aboard a WWII-era battleship.

Nazis are without doubt the greatest baddies to ever grace the screen, which is probably the reason Nazi Dawn has chosen to market itself in such a way here in the UK. From the box art, you'd imagine the film was some kind of Ghost Ship with Nazis, and it is, sort of, but if you pick this up looking for something along the lines of Outpost or Dead Snow then you will be disappointed. You see, what you're actually getting is a low-budget action-horror released in the States under a couple of different names (Deadwater and Black Ops), neither

The Marine 2 Proves That Any Movie Can Have a Sequel

Who knew that the John Cena action extravaganza “The Marine” was popular enough to warrant a sequel? Not this guy, apparently. Cena, however, has moved on to greener pastures, allowing another WWE star to take the reins. Seeing as how I’m not a wrestling fan, the name Ted Dibiase does absolutely nothing for me. He must be a bankable guy, as he’s landed the lead role in “Pistol Whipped” director Roel Reiné’s follow-up to the mildly popular 2006 actioner. The aforementioned Dibiase stars as a highly-trained recon sniper who must save a gaggle of vacationers from a band of savage terrorists. A sequel that has nothing to do with the original? Imagine that! According to the chaps at Film Junk, the DVD will contain “behind-the-scenes featurettes, a profile of Ted Dibiase (including interviews with his dad and brother), plus deleted and extended scenes.” Not too shabby for a low-budget,

It's Seagal vs. Vamps in Against the Dark

You see now This ... this is what I'm talking about! Never mind the comeback movies of Stallone or even Jcvd ... When Steven Seagal makes his comeback he's gonna be kicking the shit out of vampires! Can I get an Amen?!?

From the official synopsis:

"Katana master Tao (Steven Seagal) leads a special ops squad of ex-military vigilantes on a massacre mission, their target: vampires. On the post apocalyptic globe, sucked dry by bloodthirsty vampires, a few remaining survivors are trapped in an infected hospital. Tao is their only hope and he knows the only cure is execution.

I Could Listen To Japanese Film Announcers Say ‘Steven Seagal’ All Day.

Strange but true: Steven Seagal may be all washed up here in North America, where he’s become a bit of a side show curiosity and object of mockery. But Japan? Japan’s a different story. His films still do pretty well there, a decent number of them landing theatrical releases and provoking such things as, you know, full fledged marketing campaigns. Which means trailers. Yes, there is a Japanese trailer online now for Seagal’s latest, Pistol Whipped, which also stars Lance Henriksen in a support role, Sure, Henriksen will go pretty much anywhere and do pretty much anything for a paycheck but he’s pretty solid in everything he does and the production values in this actually look quite good. Plus, as an added bonus, you get a super enthusiastic Japanese narrator. Huzzah!

It’s in the Twitch Player below the break. But be aware: breasts be lurking within.
