I Can EASILY Say This…

I Liked Both Flicks MORE Than Their Preceding Flicks, Fo SHO!

πŸ˜‰

In Regard To…

THE EXPENDABLES 2

…It Was One Of The MOST FUN Hardcore Action Cheese-Fests I’ve Ever Experienced.

Period.

I Had A Total BLAST Giving It A Go!

Almost All Of My Classic Faves Were Present!

SYLVESTER STALLONE

ARNOLD SCHWARZENEGGER

BRUCE WILLIS

CHUCK NORRIS

DOLPH LUNDGREN

…And…

JEAN-CLAUDE VAN DAMME

πŸ˜€

WOOT!!!

Yeah.

It Was Fun, Fo Flippiddy-Flippin’ SHO!!!

And As For…

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

…I Can Tell You Was BETTER Than…

THE DARK KNIGHT

…Though, Sadly, That’s Not Saying Too Much.

I Didn’t Like…

THE DARK KNIGHT

…And Felt That…

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

…Was Fun, But Horribly OVER-LONG.

I Was Gearing-Up For A Big Finish…

…Only To Realize There Was Still An HOUR Left In It.

Sheesh.

BUT…

…It Was Pretty Entertaining.

I Liked It.

That’s About All I Did, Though.

I Haven’t Been Much Of A Fan Of This Batman Trilogy.

I Wanted To Be.

I Still Want To Be.

I’m Just, Ya Know, Kinda Not.

Oh Well.

Shit Happens.

My Bad.

ANYWAY.

You Know I Hate Spoilers, So I Won’t Delve Too Deeply Within These Two Flicks.

All I’ll Say Is The Same Thing I’ve Already Said…

…BOTH Were BETTER Than The Flicks That Preceded Them.

What More Could You Ask Of Me?!

What?!?

THE EXPENDABLES 2

…Was FUN.

THE DARK KNIGHT RISES

…Was FUN.

So, I Suppose Complaining Would Only Be Done In The Event Of An Argument.

Otherwise…

…Nah…

…I Won’t Complain.

I’ll Likely End-Up Owning Them Both.

Well…

…Okay…

…Perhaps I Won’t…

…But I’ll Buy Them For Someone Whom Has No Issues With Letting Me Borrow Them.

That Way I Don’t Feel Scummy Or Dirty.

I’ll Just Need Them Once A Year Or So.

That’s What I’m Banking-On, Anyway.

Sound Like A Plan To You?!

GREAT!!

It Does To Me, ALSO.

THE LAST BOY SCOUT

…Has Been A Personal FAVE-FAVE Since My First Viewing…

…And I’ve Had A Copy In The Ole Collection For The Bulk Of The Past 20-YEARS!

It’s One Of Those ’90s Flicks That Has Yet To Get Old To Me.

And…

…Honestly…

…That’s A GREAT Thing!!!

In Fact…

…I Think NOW Would Be A FINE Time To Give-It-A-Go!!!

Wouldn’t You Agree, My Peeps?!?

SURE YOU WOULD!!!
