Over our weekend of sniffles, we watched a lot of TV. Many episodes of Arrow and Jen's eyeballs somehow didn't roll entirely out of her head with all the MST3K episodes I watched. But we did watch a couple movies too.
It's amazing how much work Sylvester Stallone is getting despite his advancing years and being less and less believable as an action star. I wasn't hopeful for this outing even with Schwarzenegger having co-starring role. But I'd actually heard some good reviews so what the heck?
I now know not to trust those reviewers again. Utterly ridiculous and unenjoyable. It was painful to watch. Just such a stupid premise. Still better than Last Stand though!
This one was another risky choice. Watched it on a single recommendation from a podcast. This premise is probably just as ridiculous as the one put up by Escape Plan but I actually enjoyed this movie. A unique bit of filmmaking starring Elijah Wood as a concert pianist performing at gunpoint under the scoped gaze of John Cusack. And Bill S. Preston Esq. from Bill & Ted is in there too! So bizarre but also quite fun. Recommended for those looking for something a bit different.
