Hulkamania wants to run wild on Expendables 3, brother

Before his sex tape, dying muscles, messy divorce, and failed reality show, Hulk Hogan was a respectable yellow wearin', wraslin' loon. I have to admit it's sad to see him try strut his less than 24 inch pythons in vain as a desperate atte...

Review: The Expendables 2

The Expendables 2 is exactly what you want it to be, and nothing more. It's an extravaganza of big explosions, awful puns, ancient stars and barely-there plotting. Like all good ensemble pictures, there's an ample serving of cheese to pay o...

Two new Expendables 2 clips are all about explosions

Expendables 2 gets biblical on your a$$
