“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
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
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

Don’t worry. This is not tongue-in-cheek nonsense. To say that Vern takes his subject matter seriously would be a Massive understatement.
Directed by Keoni Waxman.
Starring Steven Seagal, Kyle Cassie & Peter Graham-Gaudreau.
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,

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
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
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. A brutal prison yard

Starring Lance Henriksen, Gary Stretch, James Russo and Katherine Randolph
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
Also in the cast are Luke Goss, Lauren Cohan, Ving Rhames, Danny Trejo and Frederick Koehler. Paul W.S. Anderson, who directed the 2008 movie, is producing -with Roel Reine (Pistol Whipped, The Marine 2) directing. The prequel tells the origin of the character Frankenstein (as seen in the first film and played my Luke Goss this time round), a convicted cop killer in a declining American empire where a racing reality show is about to be born in the country’s corrupt prison system.
Death Race: Frankenstein Lives will be released direct to DVD by Universal as part of their “DVD Originals” line-up.
Sony Pictures' upcoming release of Against the Dark (formerly called Last Night) will find Seagal amidst all manner of toothy mayhem.
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. Now it’s time for the last stand against the flesh-eating vampires and there’s nothing left to lose but the last of humanity."
The DVD will feature one featurette entitled "Fighting
