    Robocop (2014)

    Robocop (2014)

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris revisit the 2014 remake of Robocop, which just celebrated its 10th anniversary.

    Starring Joel Kinnaman as Alex Murphy, 2014's Robocop sees the Detroit cop almost killed by a car bomb after he gets too close to taking down the local crime boss, Vallon (Patrick Garrow).  Luckily (or maybe unlucky) for Alex, he's selected to be the first cyborg police officer for Omnicorp. They have robotic drones in war zones around the globe but are legally prohibited from deploying them on US soil.  Omnicorp CEO Raymond Sellars (Michael Keaton) believes Robocop can help turn the tide of public opinion and help him deploy robots in every major US city.

    Zach and Chris talk about some of the things this new version does well, including the horrific view of what's left of Murphy's body, the action sequences, and the complicated arc of Gary Oldman's Dr. Norton along with some of the things that pale in comparison to the original, like its self-serious tone and lack of hilarious satire, the PG-13 rating and the uncharismatic.

    You can watch Robocop on Max if you want to get refreshed on the remake.

    Next week we're talking about Darkman, which is coming to 4K for the first time on Tuesday, 2/20 [https://amzn.to/4bG4a99].

    The Warriors (1979)

    The Warriors (1979)

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris bop their way back to 1979 to celebrate the 45th anniversary of Walter Hill's cult classic, The Warriors, which debuted on February 9th, 1979.

    The titular Warriors are a gang from Coney Island who attend a massive meeting of almost every other gang in New York City to hear a plan from the leader of the city's most powerful gang, Cyrus (Roger Hill).  Cyrus proposes that the gangs stop fighting each other and join forces, as their combined numbers surpass the police and they could own the city.  Everyone is on board except the weaselly and insane leader of the Rogues, Luther (David Patrick Kelly), who kills Cyrus with a gun and then blames The Warriors for the act.  The Warriors then have to fight their way from the Bronx back to the safety of Coney Island with every gang and the cops on their heels.

    Zach and Chris discuss the literary and historical source material of the movie, the actual logistics of navigating around the city by subway, some of the most memorable gangs, how the movie's impact is still felt to this day, and more.

    Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

    Kingsman: The Secret Service (2015)

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris put on their best pair of Oxfords and a freshly tailored bespoke suit to talk about 2015's Kingsman: The Secret Service in honor of the latest Matthew Vaughn spy flick, Argylle, hitting theaters.

    Based on the Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons comic (which director Matthew Vaughn also worked on), Kingsman: The Secret Service stars Taron Egerton as Gary "Eggsy" Unwin, a bit of a chav wasting his life in London until he's recruited by Harry Hart (Colin Firth) to join the training program for Kingsman, an independent espionage agency working behind the scenes to keep the world safe.  While Eggsy trains for a shot at becoming a Kingsman, Harry investigates Richmond Valentine (Samuel L. Jackson), who is putting a plan in motion that, in his mind, will save the world but cause millions of deaths in the process.

    The guys talk about the differences between the comic and the movie, the unlikely badassery of Colin Firth, the hardcore Kingsman training, the still incredible Freebird fight scene, and more.

    Next week we are talking about The Warriors to celebrate its 45th anniversary, so come out and play.

    Hulk Vs. (2009)

    Hulk Vs. (2009)

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris smash their way back to 2009 to discuss the Marvel animated feature, Hulk Vs.

    Celebrating its 15th anniversary this week, Hulk Vs. was one of several Marvel animated movies produced by Lionsgate, starting with Ultimate Avengers in 2006 [https://www.everythingaction.com/2024/01/25/everything-action-theater-ultimate-avengers-the-movie/].  Hulk Vs. is actually two short films combined into one feature, Hulk vs Thor and Hulk vs Wolverine.  Zach and Chris talk about Loki's convoluted plan to weaponize the Hulk, the excellent voice cast, Hulk vs Wolverine being a better origin movie for Logan than X-Men Origins: Wolverine (which also came out in 2009), the drastically different levels of violence between the two movies and more.  If you want to see Hulk Vs., you'll have to find a physical copy [https://amzn.to/4bc3ok2] as it's currently unavailable to stream, rent, or purchase anywhere digitally.

    Next week, we're talking about Kingsman: The Secret Service to prepare for the latest Matthew Vaughn movie, Argylle, hitting theaters next Friday.

    Everything Action Commentary: I, Frankenstein (2014)

    Everything Action Commentary: I, Frankenstein (2014)

    Celebrating its 10th anniversary this month, Zach and Chris kick off another year of Everything Action Commentaries with I, Frankenstein.

    Aaron Eckhart stars as Frankenstein's Monster aka Adam Frankenstein, who, following the events of the Mary Shelley novel, becomes embroiled in the eternal war of gargoyles and demons.  200 years after his creation, Adam takes it upon himself to hunt down and destroy demons but his methods put him at odds with the gargoyles, led by their queen Leonore (Miranda Otto).  A plot by the demon prince Naberius (Bill Nighy) to use Frankenstein's resurrection science to unleash an army of undead demons threatens both gargoyle and humankind.

    While watching the movie, Zach and Chris talk about how the opening is shockingly accurate to the Frankenstein novel, the similarities to Underworld (which makes sense as Kevin Grevioux helped create both), Adam's training regime, the overly conspicuous gargoyle and demon deaths, tracking resurrection as a percentage and more.

    You can watch I, Frankenstein on Max [https://play.max.com/movie/37f0d0f0-5916-454b-ab7c-4ac49c0c780e?utm_id=1011l5873&utm_source=justwatchgmbh&utm_medium=affiliate&clickref=1011lycAGoZt] and watch along with the Everything Action crew.

    Gleaming the Cube (1989)

    Gleaming the Cube (1989)

    This week on the Everything Actioncast, Zach and Chris celebrate the 35th anniversary of the 80s cult classic skateboarding movie, Gleaming the Cube.

    Christian Slater stars as Brian Kelly, a punk skateboarder whose only ambition is to read Thrasher magazine and pull off the sickest skateboard tricks with his crew of friends (which includes the one and only Tony Hawk).  His adopted brother Vinh (Art Chudabala) is the complete opposite, a responsible and fastidious student.  However, Vinh uncovers some discrepancies in shipments for the relief organization he works for and gets murdered to hide the true nature of the shipments.  Brian picks up the investigation and tries to unravel the international smuggling operation with "his skateboard as his weapon".  Steven Bauer co-stars as a street-smart cop who is also investigating Vinh's murder and develops a begrudging big brother-style relationship with Brian.

    Zach and Chris talk about Brian and his crew chartering planes to find abandoned pools, Brian going "undercover" as a preppy to try and get close to his dead brother's girlfriend, the importance of Pizza Hut, murders within sight of Disneyland, and much more.  You can watch Gleaming the Cube on Prime Video [https://amzn.to/3SiHzIk] if you want to refresh yourself on this cult classic or watch it for the first time.

    Next week we are diving into the awesome Marvel animated movie Hulk Vs. to celebrate its 15th anniversary.
