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.

Random(‘ish) Movie Mention: “REIGN OF FIRE” (2002)

Sooo…

…Hmm…

…What Can I Say Here?

MATTHEW McCONAUGHEY

(In One Of My Favorite Parts For Him (As It Does NOT Fit-In With The Rest Of His Body Of Work))

…And…

CHRISTIAN BALE

(Being His Usual Brooding AND Sexy Self (Post-"AMERICAN PSYCHO" And Pre-"BATMAN BEGINS"))

…And…

GERARD BUTLER

(Before Anyone Actually Knew Who He Was (Unless They Were ME And Had Already Seen "DRACULA 2000"))

…Are Goin’ BALLZ To Da WALLZ Against…

…A HORDE OF FIRE-BREATHING DRAGONS!!!

BOOYAH, BABY!!!

BOOYAH, INDEED!!!

REIGN OF FIRE

…Didn’t Honestly Get The Grand Reception I Had Originally Anticipated.

I Really Thought Folks Were Gonna Eat This One Up AND Love It.

πŸ˜€

Instead…

…They Mainly Just Chewed It Up AND Spat It Right Out Again.

😦

BUT WHY?!?!?!

To ME…

REIGN OF FIRE

…Was A Helluva Flick!!!

Action.

Adventure.

Fantasy.

FIRE-BREATHING DRAGONS.

In Other Words…

…FUN FUN FUN!!!

Come On, Peeps!!!

WHY DIDN’T YOU LOVE THIS FLICK???

Was It NOT Cool Enough?

Was It NOT Hot Enough?

Was It NOT Not Enough?

Hmm.

I Dunno.

What I DO Know…

…Tho…

…Is That I LOVED IT!

I Saw It In The Theater, Actually.

And THEN…

…I Saw It In The Theater AGAIN!!!

Do You Know What It Takes To Get ME Into The Theater TWICE To See ANYTHING?!?!?!?!

EXACTLY!!!

It Takes A WHOLE HELLUVA LOT, My Peeps, Fo SHO!!!

REIGN OF FIRE

…Was A WONDERFULLY FUN FUN FUN FLICK…

…And I Sincerely Feel It Got A Bum-Rep For NO GOOD REASON.

Care To Debate This???

Fine.

Go Ahead.

Debate Until You’re Blue AND Purple In The Face.

It Ain’t Gonna Change MY Tune, That’s Fo DAYUM SHO!!!

πŸ˜‰

So…

…Pretty PRETTY PLEEEEEEASE, My Peeps…

…Give…

REIGN OF FIRE

…Another Chance.

It May Not Win You Over.

I Grant That.

BUT…

…It IS Better Than Most People Have Ever Given It Credit For.

REMEMBER, Kiddies…

…Movies Like This One…

…Are Made For One Major Reason…

FUN

FUN

FUN!!!

So…

…GO HAVE SOME, WHY DON’T’YA!!!

I’ll Wait Right Here Until You Get Back.

Maybe.
