Retire 'Expendables' if recent episode is all they can do

"The Expendables 3," now in theaters, continues the franchise featuring well-known action-movie icons of the 1980s and 1990s in an attempt to recapture their glory days. I thought the first movie was average, the second movie was actually better-than-average, but the third movie falls by the wayside.

Campy spirit makes 'Hercules' good, dumb fun

"Hercules" is the second attempt this year to make an incarnation of the Greek warrior after "The Legend of Hercules." For me, "Hercules" is like a lot of other characters in literature and mythology, such as Dracula or Robin Hood, that have been subjected to various cinematic interpretations. Everyone from Disney to Arnold Schwarzenegger has taken a stab at it.

It was widely released Jan. 16, and it caused quite a stir by having the biggest January opening weekend in history, grossing $89 million. I'm here to tell you that it was pretty much worth every bit of fanfare.
