Michael Rooker

In the greatest, and somehow most obvious, comic movie casting news since Arnold Schwarzenegger was announced as Mr. Freeze (Sarcasm folks), Michael Rooker has signed on to co-star in James Gunn‘s star-spanning Marvel superhero epic Guardians of the Galaxy. Before you say, “Oh he has to be playing a villain” stop right there and read on! The mighty Rook will be playing the role of Yondu Udonta. Those of you familiar with the character will know that Yondu is a member of the team. He is a Guardian.

So there you go. Michael Rooker, who has played both heroes and villains in his colorful acting career, has joined the Marvel Movie Universe, and best of all he’s playing one of the good guys. The character of Yondu is described as “a game hunter of a primitive tribe native to Centauri IV, the first planet system to be colonized outside of the Sun’s solar system” who bands together with other intergalactic fugitives to form the titular team.

The Man with the Iron Fists

A lot of The Man with The Iron Fists is based on RZA‘s undying fascination with classic kung-fu films. The first trailer gave us an idea of what to expect from the musician turned director. The film looks like it will be a blood splatter good time, but what about the other characters? Well, a new red-band trailer gives us a semi-prolific look at the heroes and villains of the story. Check it out below.

RZA will be playing the hero or, as the trailer likes to call him, the Blacksmith, the man who forges iron fists with his own bare hands. Then there’s Russell Crowe, whose characteristics live up to the name Jack Knife. Other characters’ are appropriately named based on their attributes or the weapons they use.

The Man with the Iron Fists

Wu-Tang Clan frontman RZA has been working on The Man with the Iron Fists, a kung-fu classic inspired film produced by Quentin Tarantino, for quite some time, and now we finally have a first trailer.

The film is RZA’s debut as a director. He also co-wrote it with Eli Roth, director of Cabin Fever and Hostel. Now this isn’t to be confused with Marvel’s hero Iron Fist; this is something completely different.

You can check out the trailer below.

DVD Review: Wrong Side of Town

Wrong Side of Town dvdWrong Side of Town
DVD
Directed by David DeFalco
Starring Rob Van Dam, Dave Batista, Lara Grice, David Bautista
Lionsgate Entertainment

I love all kinds of movies but some of my favorites are B-action movies. Comparable to junk food for some, but I always saw them as a better form of cinematic escapism than the majority of Hollywood’s bloated and over-budgeted FX wank fests. In my book, the worse that a movie can aspire to be is dull. Hell, even so-called “bad movies” contain loads of prime entertainment value and you can have some fun with them. In the case of Wrong Side of Town, a movie directed by a former wrestler and that’s painfully apparent from the first scene, you could have more fun sitting in a waiting room before you get a vasectomy. It’s paced like a televised golf game, poorly shot and acted, and frontloaded with every conceivable verbal and visual cliché and racial stereotype in the B-action movie playbook. You would think a movie featuring a cast of wrestlers, rappers, and porn stars all trying [and failing] to act would be better.

Former Navy SEAL Bobby Kalinowsky (Pro wrestler Rob Van Dam, a.k.a. Mr. Thursday Night, Mr. PPV, The Whole Dam Show, The Whole F’n Show, and soon to be known as Can’t Act Worth a Dam) has given up his life of silently slitting throats in the name of democracy to enjoy a comfortable and happy life as a landscape architect in Baton Rouge, Louisiana with his loving wife Dawn (Lora Grice) and nubile teenage daughter Brianna (Brooke Frost).
