But when these cold-blooded human “predators” find themselves in all-out war against a new breed of alien Predators, it’s the ultimate showdown between hunter and prey.

Anchor Bay

(This is not a repost. I recieved a 2nd copy of Hunt To Kill, but on Blu-ray as I prefer)

Hunt to Kill (Blu-ray) – Steve Austin stars as U.S. Border Patrol agent Jim Rhodes, a tough divorceemourning the loss of his murdered partner while struggling to raise his rebellious daughter in the mountains of Montana. But when a crew of trigger-happy fugitives takes Rhodes and his daughter hostage, a rugged wilderness will explode in all-terrain vengeance. Is there any wounded animal more dangerous than a lawman left for dead?

 

 

    

 

    

 

    

 


The Expendables Review

Just got back from a midnight showing of The Expendables. Sylvester Stallone, Jason Statham, Jet Li, Dolph Lungren, Steve Austin, Randy Couture, Eric Roberts not to mention a wonderful cameo by Bruce Willis and Arnold Schwarzenegger. Great action flick all around! Car chases, gunfights, explosions, hand-to-hand combat, knife fighting, Terry Crews with an amazing shotgun blowing people and things up. There is a story, though not getting in the way of action and vice versa. All the action scenes basically had meaning. This was a lot like Rambo, but with more of a story and the hand-to-hand combat was as breath-taking as the rest. I highly recommend this for an adult male audience!

Joe’s Top Picks (& why you should buy!) – 

1 – Band Of Brothers (Best war miniseries ever! Must-own for war movie fans, Speilberg & Tom Hanks fans and anyone with any sense. Buy It!…….Now!)
2 – The Enforcer/Sudden Impact (Sudden Impact = Dirty Harry at his best! Must-own)
3 – Clint Eastwood Collection 1968-2008 (Absolute Power, Dirty Harry, Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, The Rookie, Unforgiven shall I go on???)
4 – Essential Eastwood Director’s Collection (Letters from Iwo Jima, Million Dollar Baby, Mystic River, Unforgiven cheaper than the above by nearly half the price and some damn fine titles!)
5 – Absolute Power (A very underestimated Eastwood flick. Eastwood+Hackman+Ed Harris=I’m so there! Buy this!)
6 – Bad Boys – (As much as I rag on Michael Bay this here is a fun movie. Worthy of a buy)
7 – The Rookie (What’s not to love? Eastwood & Charlie Sheen shine here, another underappreciated Eastwood flick that should be in your collection)
8 – Air Force One/In The Line Of Fire (These are here mostly for In The Line Of Fire an EXCELLENT Eastwood flick, Air Force One is good but more of a throw-in) and in a tie – Bram Stoker’s Dracula/The Grudge (This is a nice pairing of similar genre movies. A good pairing, nice price. I’d get it)
9 – I Know What You Did Last Summer/I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (I love the first one, as much as I loved that I HATED the sequel. Still with the pairing of the two at about the price you’d pay for the original alone, why not buy this?)
10 – Groundhog Day/Hitch – (The pairing of these two movies is what knocks this down to the last spot. Love Groundhog Day and Murray is at his best here. Hitch…well at least Groundhog day is worth buying. Didn’t see Hitch. Don’t want to) 

Notable Mentions – War Of The Worlds (Not so much a fan here, but I’ll review it if Amazon sends it and go in with an open mind on my 2nd viewing of it maybe I’ll like it more on the 2nd go-around), Alice In Wonderland (Kiddies will eat this up. I read on Wiki that this drew in over $1,000,000,000+ worldwide up there with Titanic and below Avatar, just not my thing), The Wolfman (Didn’t see it, don’t know anyone who has, but I’ll have to rent it and see, love Anthony Hopkins though), Someone’s Knocking At The Door (looks interesting, but have to give it a rental), The Strangers (Steve Austin might be a far better wrestler, but his acting skills are pretty decent. I haven’t seen this, but I feel if it is anything like The Condemned it will at least be worthy of a rental), Wild Things: Foursome (I only mention this because a girl from my hometown of Reading, PA is in this so I’ll give my shout out here), The Gauntlet (Need to rent this, forget the movie it’s been so long),
