What We’ve Been Watching

A collection of other things we’ve been watching this week.

Feature Film Review

It stars Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Jet Li, Dolph Lundgren, Chuck Norris, Bruce Willis, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Terry Crews, Randy Couture, Liam Hemsworth, Nan Yu and Charisma Carpenter.

Mr. Church reunites the Expendables for what should be an easy paycheck, but when one of their men is murdered on the job, their quest for revenge puts them deep in enemy territory and up against an unexpected threat. Source: IMDB

    Dues, what about the recent ensemble, RED? It shows how to use ageing actors.

  • Tarkin

    Arg. That was meant to be Dudes.

  • Sam

    Very disappointed about the hiatus. It has forced me to revisit the previous episodes (gladly). Favourites included Ghost Rider 2′s podcast, Cabin in the Woods podcast and The Thing + Red State’s podcast.
    Loving the podcast, it’s genuinely fun to listen to.
    Just wish you guys come back quickly.

    But on Expendables 2. I hated the first, and still haven’t gone to the second. The same people who loved the first loved the second, so I won’t even risk it untill a DVD watch.

    Red is FRIGGIN AWESOME
