    I'm more psyched for Expendables 3, where Stallone wants to cast Clint Eastwood, Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, and Nicolas Cage

    Must have missed that, sorry. I just replaced the review.

    Anyway, early reviews point that the movie is funnier and more action packed than the first. As someone who appreciated the first for what it was, I'm definitely looking forward to round 2.

    I cannot wait to see this.

    I was originally dismayed when I heard that they were pushing for a PG-13 rating because of Chuck Norris, but now it's got its R rating back, so I'm back to psyched.

    So many things are going to explode. SO MANY THINGS.

    it was apparently pg-13 level language

    oh no biggie, not the kind of movie that spoilers would bother me too much

    It was an act one "demonstrate Vilain's villainy" thing

    Sounds like good news for the movie, though! The first one was dumb but entirely satisfying, I'm sure this one'll make for an equally exciting Netflix afternoon

    If you were concerned Expendables 2 might somehow be more subtle than the first, Van Damme's character is named Vilain.

    Apparently one of Dolph's one-liners involves him making googly eyes at the newest female member of the team...
    I'd die for some Chinese.

    You know, because she's Chinese.

    ZING!

    With Gunner Jensen and Hale Caesar (and goddamn Toll Road) walking around, it's unfortunate Stallone went with the relatively demure "Barney Ross"

    So did they have to reshoot some scenes to get back the R rating?

    Norris was interviewed recently by the Polish paper Kazeta. That story was thereafter translated by Expendables Premiere into English, which fished out a comment from the Walker, Texas Ranger actor about how “playing in this movie was a lot of fun. I play a super hero, who saves everybody’s life” – along with the following tidbit:
    “In Expendables 2, there was a lot of vulgar dialogue in the screenplay. For this reason, many young people wouldn’t be able to watch this. But I don’t play in movies like this. Due to that I said I won’t be a part of that if the hardcore language is not erased. Producers accepted my conditions and the movie will be classified in the category of PG-13.”
    i think it's possible that the interview was mistranslated in some fashion and that the language is pg-13 level

    Stallone himself said on AICN that the PG-13 rating was accurate and only changed it when the shitstorm of hate came down.

    It was about Chuck having issues with the language, not the violence.

    Yeah but they'd still have had to tone down the violence.

    this seems like a good place to drop this

    Ronnie James Dio's childhood home is for sale on eBay
    Now you can commemorate late heavy-metal legend Ronnie James Dio by bidding on his childhood home on eBay. For a starting bid of $90,000, fans can buy the house Dio “...wrote songs in, had parties in, and played in!”

    Located in Cortland, New York, the house at 147 Central Ave. is a cozy three-bedroom, one-bath abode situated right on Dio Way. In other words, it's perfect for family-minded newlyweds, young professionals, and obsessive metalheads who want to drink beer and make music in the same garage where Dio did just that. As a bonus, the house has a new water heater and an extra 10 inches of insulation added to the attic (which is very metal). Unfortunately, it also needs a new roof (not so metal).

    Best of all, the seller offers cryptic hints about a trunk that Dio buried somewhere in the backyard. Hey, what’s in the spooky trunk? Perhaps a collection of occult books by Aleister Crowley? The wicked-looking demonic cow head that inspired Dio’s mascot, Murray? A miniature statue of Dio in high-heeled boots? Buy the house, uncover the box, and behold the darkness inside. The auction has a mere 16 days left, so bid now to own this functional living space and piece of metal history.

    I just want a move like The Expendables, but all the stars play the roles that they are most famous for. I just wanna see Rambo and the Terminator chewing through goons and high-fiving.

    We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him. We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters].”
    I love this sentence
