Valid point.

I like how the movie adds effects to make it look like a comic book.

I'm now torn. I only have the money for one movie this month and I can't decide between Expendables, Scott Pilgrim, or Vampires Suck.

The action movie/firearms junkie in me wants to see Expendables.
The comic book nerd in me wants to see Scott Pilgrim.
And the Twilight hater in me wants to see Vampires Suck.

RULE OUT VAMPIRES SUCK, RIGHT NOW.

If you don't know, the same people who are responsible for all of those "...Movie" shit-fests are producing and directing this one, as well. Unless you actually like destroying your brain with the celluloid equivalent of cyanide, AVOID, AVOID, AVOID.

Scott Pilgrim...I dunno. It seems like it'll be great to watch once it hits Starz or HBO. But I can't see myself paying money to sit in a theater for it.

And The Expendables...on the one hand, it's supposed to be the man's action movie. On the other hand, so was Rambo, and I haven't entirely forgiven Stallone for that one yet.

The expendables will be awesome, its finally what we want, a old school action movie thats supposed to be fun to watch. Too many new movies try to preach a message, this is about having a good time watching things blow up.

I might buy Fear And Loathing In Las Vegas. I read the book and it was magnificent.

I watched The Boondock Saints II last night. It was an all right movie, but wielding Desert Eagles akimbo is so cliche these days...

I know, I wish they kept their 92s. I mean, custom 92s like with compensators or something would be cooler than Desert Eagles.

Coincidentally, it was free on Starz on demand and I too watched it last night

After seeing all these previews for The Expendables, I'm not sure how good it'll be. Sure, it may be an action packed movie and all but with critic descriptions like:
"If testosterone and an explosion mated and had a baby, this would be it."
and
"A Man-gasm."

These descriptions make this movie sound so red-meat and hamfisted I'm not sure anyone will be able to contain it. Keep in mind, this movie has lots of action heros, but none of these guys are oscar winners. This movie will probably be a razzie-winner galore.

One thing I noticed in the preview though is Sly is seen fanning a revolver (looked like a Colt DS) and when he's done clearing a room of baddies with it, the cylinder is still spinning. Now no revolver functions with this being possible so I'm wondering if it was edited weird for the previews or if this movie is going to be full of gun things that make no sense.
