We’re excited for ‘Looper’ simply because it’s the new Rian Johnson joint. ‘Brick’ was a brilliant play on the crime noir genre, and ‘The Brothers Bloom’ was a worthy, quirky follow-up.

Action fans anxiously awaiting the return of biceps, BOTOX and bazookas for 'The Expendables 2' were a little worried when news hit a few weeks ago that Chuck Norris said the star-studded sequel to the 2010 hard 'R' action extravaganza would be toned down because of his involvement.
