so behind, and getting behinder

I have so many movie reviews to write that it's not even funny. Stay tuned for a double-whammy review of "Philomena" and "Spotlight," both of which focus on the naughtiness of the Catholic Church. Expect a triple-whammy review of a trio of dumbass action flicks: "The Expendables 3," "Machete," and "Machete Kills." Finally, as I just watched it in the theaters, expect a review of "Captain America: Civil War."

Much writing to do, there is.

I watched about 40 mins of Expendables 3 last night. I couldn't tell you what it was about, except there was a lot of shooting and killing.

I suppose that is about the whole purpose of the "plot" anyway isn't it. Get those guys (and gal) together and watch them blow up crap and kill nameless minions of the bad guy.

Did you watch the two previous movies? Not that you really need to, but you'd get a better sense of the (ever-changing) group of Expendables if you did.

Yeah, none of these movies has much of a plot, and "3" is no exception. Sly basically dumps the old crew in favor of a new crew, but when the new crew gets captured and needs rescuing, the old crew comes back. As I said: not much of a plot.

"The Expendables 3" has the distinction of being the only PG-13 movie in the bunch, and it shows. Stallone apparently said he regretted paring the movie down for that rating. I regret it, too, frankly.
