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!
Today I would like to share with you a ‘nice’ documentary which is coming to the cinemas near you while I write this. It is about fighting, bare knuckle fighting.
Here a little summary taken from the movies official site:
An epic 12-year journey into in the world of an Irish Traveller community, KNUCKLE takes us inside their brutal, secretive and exhilarating bare-knuckle fighting lives.
Chronicling a history of violent feuding between rival families, the story focuses on two brothers as they fight for their reputations and the honour of their family name.
Brutal, yet captivating and ultimately moving, this unforgettable documentary offers an exclusive insight into the world of Irish Travellers and the lengths they will go to protect their family name.
