"Rambo: Last Blood" is coming.

    Sylvester Stallone is one of my favorite action stars on earth. He is amazing.  As a kid, I watched everything he did, R-rated or not, I would find a way to watch it.  I love that I’m in my 30’s and I still get to see his movies.  Not only is he still making movies, but he unrealistically is still the bad ass hero in them, they look like they were made in the 80’s, and they are still awesome.
  According the the N.Y. Daily News Stallone has tweeted that he had just finished working on a Gangster movie, and that he was wrapping up a new (and possibly last) “Rambo” movie.  Stallone is also set to bring back Rocky Balboa in a movie called “Creed.”  Rocky will be training Apollo Creed’s son.

  I have to say, another Rocky sounds terrible, even if it’s technically about Apollo Creed’s son.  In this day in age, boxing is an afterthought.  The sport has been so badly damaged, that I’m just not sure who would even care. Another Rambo though? Most definitely!  The last Rambo movie was one of the most memorable movies I had ever seen in a theater.  “John Rambo” was one of bloodiest action movies ever.  I could best describe it as a tasteless “Saving Private Ryan.” The movie was filled with an over-usage of blood, severed limbs, a nasty rape scene, and even a seen where a baby is just casually thrown into a burning hut.  My favorite scene of the movie, and probably the most memorable, involves a jeep full of Burmese soldiers pulling up to Rambo, who is in the middle of mowing down an entire fleet of soldiers coming at him with a Gatling style rotary machine gun which has two giant shields on it to protect his eyes from other peoples brains.  The jeep pulls up within a few feet of him, and he just turns this massive gun around and unloads it into the jeep at point blank range.  A volcano of blood shoots out from the top of the vehicle.  The theater erupted in applause and laughter.  It was one of the most unintentionally funny movies I had ever seen on the big screen.  I’m hoping “Last Blood” will follow tradition.


  How should this end?  I think that Rambo has to finally die, it’s only fitting.  But he needs to die in the most manliest of ways possible.  That is going to be one hell of a brainstorming session!

Movies for Guys that Like Movies…

   Ah this feels good.  When I first started this blog I would focus a ton on action films as they were the primary theme of my shirts at the time.  I wanted to share some pretty sweet trailers for some movies that dudes like me should be getting ready to watch.  There are some real doozies coming out, here are a few:

    “Escape Plan” looks amazing.  Not just because it has Stallone and Schwarzenegger together, but also because it looks like it makes no sense at all – and in some spots, looks completely absurd.  All of these ingredients are essentially part of the recipe which is that of, “Awesome”.  Judging from the trailer, Stallone is  a master of breaking out of prisons.  A group of people want him to test this new state of the art facility to see how full proof it is.  He seems to agree to do this in the trailer but then is electrocuted, blindfolded, injected with some unknown substance, and then taken to the super secret, state of the art facility.  This is where it really starts to look ridiculous (as they pan back to get a shot of the awful CGI prison).  Stallone then seems to receive the typical prison welcoming by getting into a scuffle where he then meets the newly jacked up Arnold.  It is then discovered that this was a big ploy to punish Stallone as he essentially falls of the grid.  Action prevails as Arnold and Sly bash there way through security guards that wear masks that look as if they are from mars, while people on the outside try to help as well, one being Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson.  The goal?  To break out of this bizarre prison and to get revenge on who set him up. This shit looks totally awesome.

“Alien Uprising” or “U.F.O” is not something that will be in the theaters….ever.  But man, it looks stupid!  The trailer is kind of vague in terms of being able to explain the story in any depth, but basically, all is great for everyone, until the power goes out and of course, random alien mayhem.  If you are an action buff, and have never heard of this….just watch the trailer.  Don’t research it or it will ruin the surprise at the end!

  Finally, the third awesome trailer for movies that I need to see soon, is for this gem.  “Legendary”, aka “Tomb of the Dragon”, stars Dolph Lundgren and Scott Adkins.   If you not familiar with Adkins, he’s a rising action star with his first real U.S. major role being Expendables 2, however he was in a bunch of other sweet movies.  He sort of looks like Ben Affleck if Affleck were an awful actor and could kick peoples asses.
  Travis (Adkins) and his team (I’m guessing they are scientists) travel to China to capture some creature that is said to be tormenting some tiny village.  This creature is of course not something that is supposed to be real, so they have to travel to see it for themselves.  All hell breaks loose when Harker, the legendary bounty hunter, also wants to get his piece of the action!
   I’m seeing a pattern here with these last two trailers…..totally awesome action stars and over the top terrible sci-fi effects.  I know for a fact I’ll be in the theatre for “Escape Plan”.  The other two I will try to see  soon so that I can give my full review on them.  If you have seen any of these, feel free to comment!

New shirt #2

    This is the second shirt we are releasing this week.  The suggestion came from an email from a customer on Etsy who noticed our “Cobra” onesie and asked us if we had an adult shirt version.  It was something that I had meant to do but had totally forgotten about it.  It is now done and it came out great!  This is also available in our Etsy and eBay shops and will be on the main site in a few days.  We have also made it available here on our blog as well.

Expendables 2: As good as it gets.

    Tuesday night I went to see Expendables 2, and I have to say…the movie was incredible.  If you go to the theater prepared to pick apart the plot, don’t even bother going.  This movie is not about the art of telling a story nor is it filled with much logic.  It’s not supposed to.  It’s sole purpose, is to kick ass.
    I am not going to give any spoilers, but I did take a few mental notes that were further discussed after the film.

    #1:  Arnold Schwarzenegger looks pretty terrible (old) and as ridiculous as it sounds, he has lost a step or two in the acting category.  The positive from this, is that due to his ridiculous appearance and his awful acting, it made his scenes that much more fun to watch.  He was hilarious.

    #2:  Chuck Norris’s face is made of clay.  It is impossible to guess how old this guy is.  Without giving away too much, his scenes in the movie were also really hilarious and he gives Arnold a run for his money for who can deliver their lines the worst.

    #3:  I’ll admit, when the announcement came that the movie was going to be PG-13, I was pissing and moaning about it every chance I had.  After watching this movie, I left there laughing at how unbelievably screwed up the rating system is.  This movie was violent, if not more violent than the first.  I’ts funny to me how you can show over a hundred people getting killed in numerous ways and its still PG-13, yet whip out a tit and say “fuck” and that’s “R”.  Its insane.

    #4:  If I had to complain about one thing in this film (there’s nothing much to complain about), its that there was not enough of Van Damme.  For being the main villain in the film, he wasn’t in it nearly enough, but the scenes you saw him in, he lights it up.  He is truly one of the greats.

    #5:  Jason Statham is on top of his game.  He was by far the most impressive in this movie.  His fight scenes where incredible and he out-shined the rest of this all star cast with some of the best fight sequences he has ever done.

Bottom line:  Go see Expendables 2.  It deserves to be seen.

Bolo shirt is finished (and some other stuff).

   Well I finished the Bolo Shirt and it came out pretty awesome.  I’ll be even more excited if someone else appreciates it as much as I do.  I know one thing, there are no other Bolo shirts, so this is it.

I think I’m also going to do one in red.

   Next week I am thinking of doing another obscure t-shirt.  I think I am going to start a mini-line of action film villain shirts, but only the greatest villains that ever graced the screens.  My next tribute will go to the evil Tong Po.

    I am also putting on deck a Dolph Lundgren “Andrew Scott” shirt from universal soldier which I want him to be seen wearing the necklace of ears.  Ill have designs up this week or next. Stay tuned!

A Dolph shirt is overdue.
