2012 just got a lot manlier than it already was going to be. We have Avengers, Batman, all sorts of other cool stuff AND Expendables 2 coming up. Expendables sequel’s cast has been up on IMDB for a minute already, but I guess for people like myself it has seemed to be too good to be true. I mean Sylvester Stallone, Arnold Scwarzenegger, Bruce Willis, Jet Li, Jean-Claude Van Damme, Chuck Norris, Dolph Lundgren and Jason Statham all in the same movie. How can that not be awesome. With movie like this, you don’t need a plot, story lines, character development or any items that would make a movie supposedly good. This movie is great already. Just put together the most awesome cast in the cinematic history, bunch of cliches, one-liners, big guns and explosions and you have what one might call art. I mean just have a look at the poster. This better be the real deal and not some elaborate scheme because this is too good!
You know I’m a big fan of Kung Fu movies. Especially the old ones. The “Karate Films” from back in the day, ones with Bruce Lee and such. The later movies featuring Jet Li and Jackie Chan and of course the latest ones like Ip Man. It’s all good. Back in the day they kept it real with no flying or OTT stunts. It was all about the battles. A Hip Hop crew close to my heart, Wu-Tang Clan has paid homage to the old school Kung Fu films across their career with cnippets from old movies played on their albums and samples from the movies used as backgrounds for the songs. Well the Arch Bishop of Wu, the RZA has taken the Kung Fu theme on another level and produced this neat little flick titled RZA Presents – Wu-Tang Vs. The Golden Phoenix. Old school Kung Fu action. I mean needless to say more, check out the flick. The coolest thing I’ve seen this morning.
