so Christian Bale says that he was disappointed to hear that Ben Affleck got cast as Batman, just because he actually would've liked to play the character again. Now I'm a huge Ben Affleck fan and he is THE reason I'm looking forward to BvS, but with the lame hollywood cop out ending of TDKR and Bale's willingness to reprise the role, it's pretty crazy that he didn't...

Really? The story I recall was WB offered Bale $50 million to step back into the suit and he said no, TDKR was the end for him.

all caught up on SoA, now just waiting til the final 2 episodes to air. I have to say that it's shocking and really crappy how this final season is, to me at least, by far the worst. It just feels so convoluted and unfocused. I wouldn't say it's *bad* per se but compared to the previous seasons it's a giant step down

Last weeks episode was excellent though

The Expendables 3


Directed by: Patrick Hughes
Written by: Sylvester Stallone
Cast: Sylvester Stallone, Jackie Chan, Wesley Snipes, Mel Gibson, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Kellan Lutz, Jet Li, Antonio Banderas, Dolph Lundgren, Harrison Ford, Terry Crews, Robert Davi, Randy Couture, Kelsey Grammer, Victor Ortiz, Glen Powell, Ronda Rousey
Studio: Lionsgate
Genre: Action
Official Site:
Plot: Barney augments his team with new blood for a personal battle: to take down Conrad Stonebanks, the Expendables co-founder and notorious arms trader who is hell bent on wiping out Barney and every single one of his associates.


+ good concept (the overall story is probably the most unique/distinct of all 3 films)
+ great cast (Antonio Banderas is absolutely fantastic with his goofy character. Mel Gibson is damn good and twisted as the villain, but doesn't get much to do and his final fight is really weak. Harrison Ford has a couple good bits making fun of Statham)
+ solid score (love that they brought back the theme)


- a lot of really bad CGI (by far the worst I've seen in any theatrical film, terrible CG creations and green screen work that almost made it seem like Sin City)
- really poor script (the dialog in particular is just really bad. Just super bland, awkward and uninteresting, aside from the bits with Banderas and Gibson)
- poorly edited (way too many cuts during the action, giving an ADD feel, and there were a few very noticeably awkward scene transitions throughout)
- underused cast (It's a wonder why they even included Jet Li and Schwarzenegger in this one. They're in it for like 2 minutes and seem kind of forced in unfortunately. Same thing with Wesley Snipes, he doesn't get much to do and fails to really make an impression. Same thing can be said about the young Expendables. Ronda Rousey and Ortiz both show some pretty weak acting skills, but Lutz and Powell are solid enough, though again they really don't get much to do and are kind of just there)



What a disappointment. An embarrassment even. I'm a huge fan of the first two movies, I think their strengths make it easy to ignore their flaws (in particular Ex2's film references)... but this is by far the worst movie in the series. They said that the first movie was too serious and the second was too comedic, and that they wanted to strike a balance in this one... yet this one is just filled with jokes all the time, or rather (failed) joke attempts. The comedy doesn't work at ALL and there's no tangible drama whatsoever. The action is largely uninteresting and unexciting as well. The only really solid and memorable action bit was a little one-man-army sequence with Statham in the big climax. All in all this was a disaster. The dialog is just crap, the action is weak (in part due to how it's shot), and it's just plagued with editing, sound and effects issues that drag it down. Even with all those annoyances though, I would still recommend it just because Banderas is so much goofy fun in it.

Great review and I agree with all of it. As per usual I didn't really notice the bad cgi, but everything else I was keenly aware of, especially the silly dialogue and comedic attempts. GROAN.

Also the lack of Arnold. :'(

Agree Mel Gibson and Antonio Banderas were great.

well that went by fast. Probably gonna catch up with Ep 9, 10 and 11 of Sons tonight and then The Expendables 3: Unrated Cut (first time seeing it in any form). When's the Sons series finale, this tuesday?
Anakin at 11:13 PM Nov 22

Expendables 3 is one I'm looking forward to.

CriticalAcclaim at 10:55 AM Nov 23

the sons series finale is dec 9th.

Cochise at 01:46 PM Nov 23

^ wow really, why are they skipping so much time? That sucks

edit: ah nevermind I thought there were only 12 eps in the season, looks like there's 13. Still a 2 week hiatus between episode 11 and the final two episodes though... I wonder if either one of them will be extra long, an hour and a half or two hours? I know they've done that before

I hate to be so mean towards a child actor but whoever did the casting for Sons of Anarchy's Abel... I don't get it. His scenes are sooo cringe worthy and unnatural, especially that one with the hammer
Glinda at 08:24 PM Nov 22

That's too bad. There are so many good child actors out there.

HTX0811 at 08:28 PM Nov 22

I'm glad I'm not the only one because everytime he's on screen, I laugh for that exact reason. I'm sure he's a nice kid but his line readings come off so weird that I wonder if he's just discovering words for the first time. lol

Cochise updated his STATUS: 2 days ago

wanna start to catch up on the final season of Sons of Anarchy, but the first three or so episodes I saw of it were really disappointing and just straight up annoying because of how they turned Jax, our hero, into an idiotic asshole. I have a big craving to revisit Lone Survivor again too, man that movie friggen ROCKED. Definitely one of my very favourite war movies of all time.
Cochise at 11:11 PM Nov 21

ah screw it, gonna give Sons another go. Hopefully it gets better

Laksmikanti at 01:30 AM Nov 22

I have not watch the series, but I have read a lot and I too saw the changes in JAX, sure everybody had a lot of drama in their lives and all of them went through a lot, BUT I think the other characters seems to have developed better... if they are not dead.

Nick KEWL at 06:57 AM Nov 22

i felt the same, but it get's better mate. The past 2-3 have been really good!

I was late to the game and just recently caught up with Boardwalk, but I'd love to hear everyone's thoughts on the series finale and final season! If anyone missed it I posted a final Boardwalk Talk blog a few days ago

I think part of the reason I was disappointed in Interstellar (spoilers follow) is because it's such a huge movie in scale and scope, and it clearly tries to be relatively realistic... yet they travel through wormholes into different solar systems to planets that can support life and... nothing. The big revelation is that 'they' are really us and throughout this vast intergalactic journey we discovered... that we are still the only life out there. It was just disappointing in that respect that after that incredible journey... it's still just us. Not even a friggen alien plant or bug lol.

I'm still trying to wrap my head around that.

Cochise updated his STATUS: 5 days ago

I think The Dark Knight Rises is one movie that actually would've benefitted greatly from the whole 'Part 1, Part 2' thing we're seeing more often these days. Really made it an epic conclusion. Have the first part be about the defense of Gotham, and ultimately the takeover of Gotham and finish it off with Bane and Batman fighting and Batman losing, breaking his back. Then the second part would be his return and eventual sacrifice/victory. I think the whole thing would've benefitted from just being extended, especially feeling the takeover of the entire city, which I don't think they focused on enough in the movie, the feeling of how much time Gotham was under new rule. I still like the TDKR we got, I just think that it kind of deserved to be more epic and that that 2 part thing would've actually benefitted it like... well like no other part 1 part 2 movie that I can think of. Not like two 2 hr 45 minute movies like TDKR is, but just two 2 hour movies, I think that would've been better.
OldKingClancy at 11:56 AM Nov 18

I'd have to agree, I've said it before but as much as I like Rises it does feel like a four hour movie stuck inside a run-time just under three.

Ideally I would've loved a four hour movie but the two part solution would've worked better.

RogerGarage at 01:36 PM Nov 18

That is such a great idea! It makes sense and would have been fucking epic.

BOARDWALK TALK: Season 5 Episode 8 “Eldorado”: The Series Finale



Let us all know what you thought of the eighth episode, the season and series finale of HBO's Boardwalk Empire, titled Eldorado.

Also since this is the last one I welcome everyone to share their thoughts not only on the finale, but on the entire 5th season as a whole, and the entire series as a whole now that we have the whole picture.

Feel free to discuss the episode WITH SPOILERS below, so let loose on anything and everything you want regarding the episode. That also serves as a warning to those who HAVEN'T seen the episode (or obviously all previous episodes) that there will be spoilers in the comments, ye be warned!

Cochise at 06:24 PM Nov 16

@Clancy - Pacino, do you mean Capone? If so then yeah I agree, although it was subtle (and we have seen him emotional before, like with his son or his brother) you really sensed a great feeling of fear within Graham's Capone in his final moments.

I would've liked more seasons of course... at the very least I think this season should have been 12 eps (yet for me it's hard to really complain about that now because for me all 8 episodes this season were just so top notch), or do what the Sopranos did and have like a Season 5 part 1 (of say 8 episodes) and then a Season 5 part 2 (of another 8). I think Breaking Bad did that too... I don't know, it's really hard for me to really think of that right now because I'm shocked with how much I loved this final season. I felt the time jump was awkward initially, but as it settled in it made so much more sense with all the little details and connections (I think I made this point with more detail in earlier Boardwalk Talk's from this season) to the point where, again to me, I can't really see it being more satisfying in a different way.

Obviously I liked it a hell of a lot more than you did, so just for me personally I've done a 180 here. I was super disappointed when it was announced S5 would be the last, I was like 'no fricken way, there's so much more to show' and then even more disappointed when we learned there was only 8 eps... yet here we are, after those 8 eps and I've totally changed my stance and despite wanting more (I mean why wouldn't I), I don't think we *need* more. I actually feel completely satisfied with the show as a whole and the way they handled this final season. The way it brought everything together, and now after being able to see everything Boardwalk Empire has to offer as a complete package... I don't know, I just take a step back and go 'wow, that's great. It's damn near perfect' and I'm even thinking now that despite me wanting more, I actually think even another full season before this final season would've actually been detrimental to the big picture, the show as a whole.

I mean to me it's kind of like this... the main short descriptions of every season...

S1: The Reign of Nucky and the Rise of Jimmy
S2: The Reign and Fall of Jimmy
S3: Nucky vs. Gyp and the Rise of Capone
S4: Chalky vs. Narcisse and the The (beginning of the) Reign of Capone
S5: The Fall of Nucky, the Fall of Capone and the Rise of Luciano and Lansky

and I just think it works so well. Yes I think something between S4 and S5 would've been great as the end of S4 only really showed the beginning of Capone's reign, and then we skip 7 years. So that would've been nice to see more of that, but I thought they did a surprisingly good job representing his reign and transformation at the end of the day anyway.

Still though yeah, I mean sure even one more season would've been nice, one between 4 and 5. It could show more of Capone's reign, Rothstein's fall, more of the rise of Luciano and Lansky and Chalky's fall, all of which were only really referenced off-screen... but the key thing if Nucky. What would they do with Nucky? S4 already kind of put him to the side a bit with the Tampa/Cuba stuff which honestly wasn't that interesting... so what would really drive his story in a potential 'season 4.5' or whatever? The only thing I can really think of is having his story driven 50/50 by the Tampa/Cuba thing/Patricia Arquette (who could bite the dust in that season instead of season 5) and the other half being Nucky having more interaction with Rothstein as we see his fall. I think that could've worked, and it could've been great but again here we are at the end, having seen everything, and I'm just thinking... at least to me, it doesn't feel like we *needed* that. At least to me. Yes I would've liked to have seen it, but I don't think it would've made S5 or the show as a whole THAT much better or the final season even more effective, which is kind of surprising for me to say but it's how I feel now, at the end of the day. But yeah alright lol, I love this show so much that I do wish they had gone the 2 part final season route (S5 part 1 with 8 episodes and then S5 part 2 with 8 episodes). Oh well though, it is what it is. Hopefully you'll like it more as it sinks in or as you revisit it the next time man. And no worries you're not coming off in any of those ways lol.

As for the flashbacks, I think that was an integral part of this season -- and of the show in general. I think it adds a lot and I don't think it was ever meant to be leading up to a twist like you imply with Nucky giving her to the Commodore. I don't think that's meant to be treated as a shock or a twist as you say, but rather like all of the flashback events (most of which we know about already) they are there to fill things out, to add character, to build character, to add to the world, to expand the world, the characters, and the history past just offhand references to the past and the viewer's imagination. The events within aren't really the main point of the flashbacks, but rather seeing younger versions of these characters, how they were, how they started, seeing them live before the life changing events that set the show's main events in motion. To me it worked brilliantly and added a TON of depth to Nucky, it really made me feel for him in ways that I didn't think I would. It made him a lot more likable, a lot more understandable, which I think was imperative as the show was always pretty firm about not making there a clear good guy or bad guy, nearly every character did despicable or unlikable things, even the main character in Nucky, so I think the decision of showing Nucky as his young self, innocent and everything, was the perfect final ingredient -- and one that I think will add a lot of depth to the show on repeat viewings having seen that now. To me it added a lot of perspective.

Chalky I agree with. Honestly despite his importance to the show in general, and his impact and fan love... 7 years had passed from season 4 and I kind of wish they had just killed him off off screen just like they did Rothstein. Have him commit suicide over getting his daughter killed or something, I don't know... he was the one thing I didn't like about S5. I'll have to watch it again but only his scenes I recall as being time wasters. Stuff that dragged and seemed irrelevant. I mean hell just have him in prison for that 7 years or whatever it was, getting released on Episode 1 of S5, then have him immediately track down Narcisse in that episode, confront him in that episode, and die in that episode. He was like in 3 or 4 episodes and his entire subplot could've been done in a single episode in 1 or 2 sequences, I don't get the point of dragging it out to be honest.

Gillian though, I think she needed to be here. That's the thing about the show. The first main character we see in the entire series I believe is Jimmy Darmody pretending to play dead on a road. And then the next one is Nucky I believe. And that's the show. The show at its core, the main story arc, is really the story of Nucky and the Darmody family. That's why Gillian was there. Because she has always been there, and as we see in S5 Nucky was the one who brought her in, and she was the one who, because of that decision, made him who he was. That's why Tommy and Gillian were still a big part of the show in season 3 and season 4 despite Jimmy having died in season 2. Nucky only became who he was because of the Darmody family, and they never left his side until his death, by their hands. He used them to get ahead, and eventually it finally caught up with him. Plus even beside that I think it was very satisfying to see her very despicable character suffer and be punished for her actions. Just ending her story at being arrested at S4 wouldn't have been satisfying enough considering all she has done. Like I said in my first post, I just wish that her final scene showed her to clearly have snapped mentally and have entered a permanent mental hell to live out the rest of her life in lol, but it is what it is and honestly I feel kind of bad about saying that after having seen the flashbacks of a young Gillian, who was a fun and (well, relatively) innocent little punk girl who Nucky completely used and screwed over. So maybe I do like her semi-ambiguous ending better than I did initially... I mean she was still such a bitch throughout her adult life on the show, and we even knew that Nucky gave her to the Commodore, but it wasn't until we actually saw that, at least for me, did I actually go '...shit' and feel sympathy for young Gillian and, in turn, old Gillian. Yeah she was a bitch, yeah she's messed up and that stuff she did with Jimmy and everything... it's unforgivable... but she wasn't born that way. She was transformed into that monster by what the Commodore did to her... by what Nucky did to her.

And about Joe being Tommy, I think they did it well. It wouldn't have really worked if he was just straight up there and killed Nucky right away, just a pure revenge machine. Like you imply he was there to figure out who this man was who killed his father. This man who had loved his father, and treated his father like a son, and then killed his father... he heard his 'mee-ma' aka his grandma aka Gillian talk about him but I think the best part is that Tommy still wanted to find out for himself. Joe and Nucky had a few conversations in this season, about death, about killing, about the game, about how it changes you. In retrospect I probably should've paid more attention to those conversations lol, cause it seems they were really deliberate and meaningful, much more so after the reveal. Tommy was feeling him out, and then the last straw was Nucky throwing yet more money at him as he tells Tommy to 'go back home' and Tommy says 'I don't have one' so Nucky takes out his money and starts counting out a bunch to give him as he says 'well then go find one, go make one -- don't take it out on everyone else'. That's where Tommy finally makes up his mind, takes the money, rips it up, then follows Nucky down the Boardwalk and says to him 'you know when Mee-ma talked about you, I couldn't tell if it was love or hate' of course referencing Gillian, his grandma, and reveals himself with a gun drawn, making his decision, crossing that point of no return after living such a mess of a life (with his father and mother murdered and his grandma in a mental institution, and his surrogate father in Richard murdered, it's pretty safe to assume I think that he ran away at a young age once he reached adolescence, I believe he's only 15 in S5, with a pretty messed up life, and he wanted to understand the root of why it was this way. Edit: here's a solid read about Winter on Tommy and more

That's the show though, 99% of the 'good characters' aren't without their flaws and 99% of the 'bad characters' aren't completely despicable. Everyone here is human, everyone here is flawed. Just interesting to think about. Wowza lol, just noticed how long my reply was, sorry about that! Thanks for the post though, love talking about this!

OldKingClancy at 07:42 PM Nov 16

Fuck, yeah I meant Capone. I'll read the rest of your post in the morning and give a reply then.

Cochise at 11:55 AM Nov 20

A little new note, I just went back the other night and watched the last few episodes again looking for the parts with 'Joe' aka Tommy to pay closer attention to them this time and man, I highly recommend doing that because once you know for sure it's Tommy the conversations that initially seemed mundane have a much deeper meaning and they feel very sly and deliberate. Great stuff!

BOARDWALK TALK: Season 5 Episode 7 “Friendless Child"



Let us all know what you thought of the seventh episode, titled Friendless Child, in the final season of Boardwalk Empire!

Feel free to discuss the episode WITH SPOILERS below, so let loose on anything and everything you want regarding the episode. That also serves as a warning to those who HAVEN'T seen the episode (or obviously all previous episodes) that there will be spoilers in the comments, ye be warned!

Cochise at 11:35 PM Nov 15

my friggen heart is pouding lol... wow. What a great and tense episode. Fantastic atmosphere and they really made it feel like the entire world was falling apart, despite there not being a massive shootout/classic showdown, which is brilliant.

A fitting end to Mickey Doyle. He finally, finally opened his mouth one times too many and refused to just shut up. It's pretty great that of all things, the big talker of the show... gets shot in the throat of all places and killed lol. That's one way to shut him up. It's amazing he survived this far lol. I loved the part in this episode in the club when Nucky looked at him and was just like 'wow. Really? After all of this... it's me and you?" lol.

Eli's son's storyline has come together SO well here and now it makes all his appearances in previous seasons worth it. I know they didn't have all this planned out (at least I don't think they did) but damn these writers are so talented that they somehow made it seem like this was all mapped out from the start.

Once again it's a brilliantly crafted, unpredictable episode and I while I didn't see this coming, what this episode offered, it just seems so perfectly well done for a penultimate episode.

That is, aside from one thing. The only thing I didn't really like, or understand at least, was them getting the judge's permission to take down Al Capone... that was great, I get it, makes sense, it really happened, etc. ...but then the scene right after that makes it seem like they're going after Capone... "gentlemen, you have your warrant" and then it cuts to a bunch of guys going in some building which you would assume to be Capone's, warrant in hand, about to make the arrest... but then all of a sudden that's not what's happening... the bureau of internal revenue comes in and says they have a subpoena for Maranzano? What? Where did that come from? Eli put the bullet in his head, and it looked like the other guys were wearing badges, but it wasn't the double agent guy who just got the warrant who was in Capone's gang was it? Who were the guys Eli was with? Were they actually the law (cops/feds/BIR/etc.)? Really confused on that point... maybe I missed that part but it seemed like they did that way too quick and it was confusing to me how it made sense exactly and how easy it was to take this guy out... can anyone help me with that?

Anyway, one last point... Gillian's letter. It did a little more to give perspective to her suffering, which all things considered is great. It's what I said before -- it's an even worse punishment than jail or death, being surrounded by insanity and treated like you're insane, especially for 7 freakin years in an asylum basically. Buuuut they did try and make us feel some sympathy for Gillian... I mean, I kind of do, what they did with that did kind of work... I did kind of start to pity her, but I mean... no, just no. I can't forgive her. I still want her to burn for everything she did to Nucky and to Jimmy. I can feel sorry for her a bit, but I really hope Nucky doesn't save her. Maybe he goes to save her but she's already beyond saving, she's actually gone insane? I mean that's kind of a downer but I think that would be the best result considering how they portrayed her character for the vast majority of the show... hmm...


Alright, deep breath... here we go... the final episode.
