    Chuck Norris is in his 70s and looks 40. That's just nuts to me.

    I've seen Expendables 2 already. I liked it. Dumber than a bag o' hammers but a lot of fun.

    Red Dawn is now officially set for release on November 21. Trailers are out now and some of the stars of the film are talking about it publicly...I loved the original.

    I think that weird looking beard of his covers up a lot of his aging. Dyed beards look very strange

    I'll bet if you saw Chuck without the dye in his beard, and that little horseshoe without the rug, he'd look like Elmer Fudd.

    PS

    My name is Mal Paso Mr. Norris, and I live in Bloomington IN, just in case you have anything to say to me.

    I'd still rather watch Chuck Norris in his 70's than most of the other guys there who are a decade or two younger. I've always liked Chuck.

    Best was when Conan O'Brian had the "Walker Pipeline" where he would randomly pull a lever and a short clip of Walker would instantly broadcast; like many bits, Conan played it to death but it was still great. But I digress....

    Not surprising. You can't get Hollywood execs to say a bad word about China. Human rights abuses? Oppression? No problem! It's a humongous emerging market and there's lots of money to be made.

    No, this one is all about talking. Talking about, you know, feelings and stuff.

    With the first one it was impossible to get the sound level right. The action scenes were so freaking loud and then they would switch to a scene of Sly and Mickey softly mumbling at each other, so I would have to turn the volume up to catch the dialogue (maybe a mistake right there!). Next thing it's BANG CRASH -- a deafening action scene and I'm diving for the remote to save my ears. Spent the whole movie playing with the volume control.

    watched it with my sons last night, yep it sure was dumb but it was AWESOME.

    Although, I thought it a little odd that they were playing "Crystal Blue Persuasion" aboard the plane. Musta been because they had the skirt with.

    I saw the first one. The concept is great, but I felt it was a wasted opportunity. I actually didn't think it was pumped up and ludicrous ENOUGH. Rourke totally stole it. I will check out 2 at some point.

    RED did a much better job with the 'reunited old farts' angle. I love that movie.
