Ep 164 Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines : Do You Expect Us To Talk?

The Terminator is back for a third outing with a sequel we thought we wanted, however minus the Cameron, the movie at least help promoted Arnold’s election as Governor. Now Judgment Day has passed, John Connor is off the grid and lacking purpose in life, when he stumbles into an old acquaintance (Kate Brewster) in a vet surgery after getting injured on a motorbike. However a new terminator (T-X) arrives to kill both John and Kate but is saved by the good old Series 800 Model 101 to get both of them to safety as Judgement day arises.

Join Becca, Dave, Chris and Charlie as we discuss what it would be like if Edward Furlong reprised his role, the T-X the Swiss army knife of terminators, phallic symbols, the miscasting of Nick Stahl, terminators creaming their pants and more talk of 80’s sitcoms.

Do You Expect Us To Talk Will Return with Terminator: Salvation

Ep 163 Terminator 2: Judgment Day : Do You Expect Us To Talk?

Do You Expect Us To Talk? returns (apologies about the wait folks) to continue the Terminator franchise with one of the biggest films of the 90’s, Terminator 2: Judgment Day. Following 10 years after the first film, the sequel finds Sarah Conner locked up in a mental hospital while her son (who looks in no way over the age of 10) John is riding around LA listening to Guns N’ Roses. The T-800 returns, this time to protect John from the new advanced model, the T-1000. Will they manage to protect John, or can they even change the fate of the human race by defeating Skynet for good.

Join Becca, Dave, Chris and Charlie as we discuss, going against the general consensus, what movies Joe Morton has been in, deleted scenes, is there a preferred cut of the film, face licking and, obviously, 80’s British sitcom, ‘Allo ‘Allo!.

The Action Junkies : Escape Plan

So with a bit of a break of over a month but we’re back with the Christmas period behind us and Jade (@CelluloidAK) gives her run down of her top movies of 2013, not before discussing her number 1 film Escape plan.

Escape Plan is the monutenus film where Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sylvester Stallone co headline the same film. Stallone plays Ray Breslin, who gets hired to be put in prison to escape out of them to find the flaws within the system. He gets offered a multi-million dollar deal  to break out of a top secret prison that is supposedly escape-proof.  Things go south when the warden (Jim Caviezel) is not who he seems and must turn to fellow inmate Emil Rottmayer (Schwarzenegger) and plan to escape together.

Chris (@CinemaTronix) also chips in on some of the films he likes in 20013. It’s great to be back a hopefully a lot more will follow.

Follow us on twitter @Action_Junkies

See you next week with Enemies Closer.

Taken / Commando? Same Difference

Ever since Brian Mills presented his particular set of skills, Liam Neeson has been transformed into an action star. Something that has been lacking recently, with only Jason Statham single handily filling the void. Who would have thought it? Neeson, now in his 60’s, is now the go to guy if you want ruthless bad-ass who takes no prisoners. When Taken was surprise hit at the box office, it was inevitable that a sequel was forthcoming in Taken 2. Why they haven’t called it something else like Taken Again or Taking Lives : Mills’ Wrath, I don’t know.  But as we’re set for old Liam to save his dumb-ass sprog yet again, it got me thinking that, haven’t we seen this before? A former marine, kills countless bad guys on a mission to get his daughter back. Does that sound familiar?

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

COMMANDO!

Think about it. Is Liam Neeson the modern day equivalent of Arnie? Though I doubt he has his mussels, he does fill the role of that one man killing machine that Schwarzenegger conveyed in the 80’s. You may think that the link between the two is tangible, however  the two action classics differences lay in the time they where made. Commando is definitely 80’s with its over the top comic book violence and cheesy one liners, making Arnold a star and being it the quintessential action movie of the decade. Taken is nearly opposit in vibe. No comic book gore and ridiculous fights sequences, though some may disagree on that one. No instead it’s relatively gritty and serious with fights that resemble actual fighting techniques, much like the Bourne franchise. It’s a style that most action movies today seem to go for. Unless itself is based on a super hero.

Also, aren’t the two films enjoyed for the same reason. Neither of them have any particular depth other than a mans determination to  retrieve his daughter, but both involve colourful villains meeting their demise at the hands of a one man army. They’re the kind of films that you sit down with your buddies over beers and watch on cheap friday night in. Commando never had a second outing, though it nearly did with a script that turned out to be the greatest action movie of all time Die Hard. So with Taken 2 due in October 4th, could this be anther land mark in its genre, probably not.
