Of course it's atrocious - that's the whole point!

sure, but atrocious in the "rourke/stallone are now 99% plastic" kind of way, which I find freaky

these smooth, rigid, plastic faces with a few sparse facial hairs planted on top of bloated bodies are really the stuff of nightmares

what's so bloody wrong with wrinkles, you can be 75 and still bad ass (look at gran torino or at michael caine in his last revenge movie)

Eastwood was truly badass in Gran Torino :beer:

I still think the Expendables looks like it'll be pretty funny.

Michael Caine was truly awesome in Harry Brown, likewise Clint in Gran Torino!:beer:

You can't always be serious about your movies - you need a laugh some time and movies like the Expendables and the A-Team are just that...

Of course it's bollocks - but it's nostalgic '80s bollocks with a bunch of old gits who are having fun sending themselves up doing it! :D

no, I get that, and like the idea (not convinced about the execution though)

my point was that it would be nicer to see them (and the rest of Hollywood) accept the idea that their faces have to show their age, rather than a plastic frozen in time version of it

they kind of make fun of their age but not too much... seeing the trailer, they still look in their late 40s', and a very healthy version of it... while in reality Stallone is 65 for god sake!

this is hollywood. aging is worse than dieing.
and these guys don't have anything "deeper" to balance out their agyness so of course superficiality rears its ugly head in old age in a freakish way. this isnt trois couleur - blue.

having said that i haven't watched the trailer but a nice exception and fitting role for the nightmarishly plastic appearance was rourke in the wrestler, it fitted the bill of the movie splendidly.

indeed
it was like a redemption for him, and winning the lottery; a respected director asked him to play a washed out plastic nightmare!

I'd love to see Stalone do that

i saw the first 20 minutes and loved it - and then there was a powercut. going to take the missus to see it tomorrow.

can't work out if it's genuinely awful/brilliant or just made to be awful/brilliant.

it's like commando or something. plot is terrible, dialogue is hillarious, action is pretty superb. gets the 10 year old kid in me going*.




* i don't mean that there's a ten year old kid fucking my arse, or that i've eaten one.

That's kind of what I hoped it would be like!

Does that mean that you have a 12 year old fucking you in the arse, or that you have eaten one?

You have a google alert set up to notify you any time that's mentioned or something?

email and text.

It's intelligent to identify a 12 year old spit-roast even when not explicitly mentioned
