Hi Bryan here…

I had a hell of a good time with The Expendables.  It was kind of an ultimate action film winking at previous action films along the way.  All the characters were set up brilliantly in the first film and I look forward to a sequel.  But this time, according to the LA Times, Stallone is looking to hand over his directing and writing duties to others.

Stallone co-wrote, directed, and starred in the first Expendables film.   That is a pretty hefty work load.  He was injured on that film and just had a mass amount of workload, I don’t think he put everything he had into his acting.  Who could really??  Well, I think this is a good decision for him to let others write and direct future Expendables films so that he can still be hands on and put all his effort into acting.

Maybe this film will become a franchise where different writers and directors will direct each sequel.  That could be awesome and an action junkies dream.

Your thoughts?

Movie Quotes

The Joker:
[speaking to Two-Face] Do I really look like a guy with a plan? You know what I am? I'm a dog chasing cars. I wouldn't know what to do with one if I caught it. You know, I just do things. The mob has plans, the cops have plans, Gordon's got plans. You know, they're schemers. Schemers trying to control their worlds. I'm not a schemer. I try to show the schemers how pathetic their attempts to control things really are. So, when I say that you and your girlfriend was nothing personal, you know that I'm telling the truth.
The Joker:
It's the schemers that put you where you are. You were a schemer, you had plans, and uh, look where that got you. I just did what I do best. I took your little plan and I turned it on itself. Look what I did to this city with a few drums of gas and a couple of bullets. You know what I noticed? Nobody panics when things go according to plan. Even if the plan is horrifying. If tomorrow I tell the press that like a gang banger will get shot, or a truckload of soldiers will be blown up, nobody panics, because it's all, part of the plan. But when I say that one little old mayor will die, well then everyone loses their minds!
The Joker:
[Joker hands Two-Face a gun and points it at himself] Introduce a little anarchy. Upset the established order, and everything becomes chaos. I'm an agent of chaos. Oh, and you know the thing about chaos? It's fair.
[with the gun in Two-Face's hand, Two-Face pauses and takes out his coin]
[showing the unscarred side] You live.
The Joker:
[flips, showing the scarred side] You die.
The Joker:
Mmm, now we're talking.
