Well Wrestlemania is a week after the supposed new release date. Also, The Rock has Fast Six coming out in May of next year too.

true.

all the initial reports were really positive about the movie too.

They missed a golden opportunity to call it Sex Fast Sex Furious...  or something like that.

Adam Sandler's last awesome movie, in my opinion, was Big Daddy...in 1999. 13 years of (mostly) duds! I enjoyed a few along the way (I actually didn't mind 50 First Dates, for example), but man, his peak really came in 1996-1999.

Watched Rango with my best friend, two bottles of malbec, and a tub of gelato. That was a 5-star night.

MIB3 was decent, better than I thought it would be though Will Smith is cheesy. 6/10

Will Smith has been a joke since his stellar performance in "Six Degrees of Separation".

Django Unchained Teaser Trailer


Role was written for Will Smith... but Foxx took his place when Smith turned it down. Would have loved to have seen Smith play the part.

Still, looks good.

Prometheus was pretty freaking awesome, especially if you are an Alien fan

The Matrix was written for Will Smith too, and he turned it down.  Said he felt like he wasnt right for the role.

I'm actually glad he didn't. Keanu Reeves, while dull, was a good Neo.

For real. Get on that crap Bay.

Looks like something good out of Quentin Tarantino. He's been in a bit of a lull, hasn't he?

The Mrs. and I watched Act of Valor Saturday night. Wow, I loved it. No one will confuse the acting with Oscar nominations, but the action... wow... just wow. I stated to my wife that I thought maybe the movie was a bit of an advertisement of some of our military might so-to-speak to which she replied: "Advertisement? Seems more like a warning to me..." :lol: If you haven't seen it,  you should, it's just frickin' awesome.

Journey 2 may be the worst movie ever made.

Never saw it, know next to zero about it because of the zero advertising campaign. But when it came out, it came out with zero fanfare and advertising. I don't get how Johnson's career fell the way it did. He should be the action star of the decade, and I say that honestly and as someone who hates fake wrestling. But the guy has an innate charisma few have, is likable, a decent actor, and awesome in zero plot line action flicks. It seems Tooth Fairy and going the Disney kid friendly route for a while destroyed his career in film. Aside from FF, where he's just one of many, he doesn't have much going. And it's a shame. For times when I want to sit back and watch a dude kill people and crap blow up, the Rock has my dollar.

Jason Statham is the same boat, basically. Should have blown up as one of the big action stars, but his career kind of stalled out, and is in declin right now. For the past five years, Statham, Johnson and Vin Diesel should have been the huge action film stars. And all three are sinking in murky waters. Meanwhile, we've got Shia LaBouffy and Taylor freaking Loutner starring in action films. Something is wrong with the world. Where have the Ahnolds, Seagals, Van Dammes of my childhood gone, starring in godawful action movies with zero plot, but you loved because they were charismatic, awesome and shooting and blowing crap up, and a good way to waste 80 minutes.

Journey 2 was a massive hit.

http://boxofficemojo.com/movies/?id=journey2.htm

Made over 300 million worldwide and the budget (minus advertising) was only 79 million.

Rock got locked in a bad deal with Disney... but he's been a pretty consistent ticket pusher when his movies come out.

Yeah, I thought I remembered I being decent worldwide. Likewise, in the US, it wasn't insane. Although $100 mil... Okay, I guess I was wrong, that is impressive. I thought it did about $30-40. So ignore the Journey 2 ignorance.

That said, I still wish Rock would return to R rated action. It's what he was born for.

Heck yeah. He's awesome in action movies.

I wish he'd do more comedies. He's a funny guy, as well.
