The Expendables - My Kind of Men!! ;)

Listen up, Hollywood.... THIS is the form of manliness I would seriously like to see when I flip on the tube or plunk down my hard earned dollars to check out one of your flicks. Just look at 'em -- fit, primed, capable and ready for anything men who actually take a little bit of time out of their day to hit the gym! Or hit something! ;) haaaa!

I was just remarking on William's post about the Expendables over at his blog, London Is Cool, of how I smile every time I pass by this poster in the subway. Each time I see it, I just have to stop and look it over for a few secs. It just warms my heart to look and see this hard bodied, good lookin', awesome lineup of action heroes ready to come and save my day. From Sly and Arnold to Jet Li, they seem to have gotten them all, and have also included a couple MMA guys. Lovely!

I guess this poster excites me so because I've so overdosed on the endless parade of pudgy, bellyriffic, never met a gym or a workout they liked guys that Hollywood is continually forcing down my throat on TV and commercials for like, 5+ years now (see Get Him to the Greek, Knocked Up, Mr Rollback on those damn endless Walmart commercials, The King of Queens, Life According to Jim, the Budweiser guy who crashes VIP parties and all the portly, calorie control challenged husbands they show on TV with fit, attractive, skinny wives who apparently know a little something about healthy diet). I'm sick of it! I doth protest!!

Yeah, I'm bitching and being superficial and some fat guys out there might not like it!! I don't care!!! Just as you guys want to see great looking women everywhere you look, especially in movies and on TV, I want my fair share of the same! Damn right! Bring on the boys! ...um....the fit ones...~ ;)

So, please, please, please, Hollywood, keep on pumping out Expendables. Me likey. Me likey alot!! (and keep showing those Shake Weight and Bowflex commercials with the shirtless guys in 'em!~ those are my favorite! ;)

And hey, here's hoping that the movie is just as good as the poster looks! ;)

Let's all pause right here and forgive Mickey Rourke for the bad plastic surgery. Dude tried something and it didn't work. Whoops!

Randy Couture - pure athletic gorgeousness. Yes, I would. Every single day! ;)

I definitely will watch the movie, I didn't know it is already released. Thanks!

June Zach (Fledgling Blogger) said...

I'm gonna watch this movie as well! It's a once-in-a-lifetime film that brings us the biggest veteran action stars of all time. :D

This is surely a huge hit! ;D

Wilmaryad said...

Did you know that Sly asked to be Photoshopped to look taller and to Photoshop Bruce Willis and Dolph Lundgren to look shorter? We now know who is the Expandable of them all. ,-)

You're right to demand straight guys have a hot body, no matter how far and few in between they are. As Margaret Cho says "There is no such thing as a straight man with visible abdominal muscles. You need to suck c*ck to get that muscle definition. It doesn't work for women." :p

As for guys with muscled bodies, I have noticed that they only

William K Wallace said...

I watched the movie press conference yesterday and Sly Stallone looks kinda weird...I hope to catch the movie next week...It is old school, which is what I like...

The Fitness Diva said...

OMG, Sly is looking weird nowadays. There is something strange going on with his nose.... I can't put my finger on it! ~ And I don't think I want to! ;)~

Wilmaryad said...

I realized I had forgotten to complete my comments, but was relieved I didn't because it was to be unjustified.

Today, however, I have every right to say that men with muscled bodies are as arrogantly self-absorbed as can be, especially when they're of the gay persuasion.

Diva, I understand that one puts in lots of effort to look as good prefers someone who has put in the same effort. But does genuine love really die if the other's body isn't as ripped, buff or veiny?

I guess it's more compatible in straight relationships ... oh well. Major disappointment here today.

Movies to Watch said...

This is a star studded movie, and will definitely gross breaker when it hits the screen..

Can't wait to see this movie!

Don E. Chute said...

The Movie was very good--Sequel--


Wilmarard--Get a Grip:>/

Don E. Chute said...

Oh and PS I wish I could look and feel as good as Sly can

Sure he's had a few procedures, he has also about a billion bucks...


Berryvox said...

Argh, the whole "pudgy guy with hot, skinny wife" trend bugs the hell outta me.

vange said...

I look forward to this coming out on Netflix--will def watch it! It looks fun.

Jamie said...

Nothing wrong with being superficial when it comes to Hollywood. We pay those people to look like Gods and Goddesses, and not just with their waist sizes! :)

Sadly, there hasn't been ANY ads for this movie here at all! I don't even know if it's showing here yet.

The Fitness Diva said...

Thanks, everyone for all your thoughts!

Don, you're my hero....and also an expendable -- without the plastic surgery!

Wilmaryad, don't be throwin' no hissy fits on my blog, okay? ;)
Anyways, I can easily point you out to quite a few fat assholes. They also exist, and in droves I can tell you! If I'm gonna have to deal with any asshole, the good lookin', chiseled one is the way to go! ;)

you and me see eye to eye, vange!

I am going to hit the movies this week to check this movie out. thanks for the review, Don!


Wilmaryad said...

I'll blame it all on hunger. ,-)

You're right. Better have a chiseled asshole than one with self-inflicted weight problems.

To redeem myself, you are now part of my list of BlogAmis - interesting people befriended through blogs. :-)

Enjoy the testosterone @ the movies!

The Fitness Diva said...

whoops, I meant me and Berryvox see eye to eye - about the pudgy man/skinny wife thing. So done with it, right? No mas, por favor! ;)
Thanks, Wilmaryad, I accept, and just point me out to where the party is! Hope your Ramadan is going well!

Hope it releases over there too, Jamie. All who saw it so far enjoyed it, word of mouth....

Vera said...

I saw the movie and enjoyed a good laugh on some of the scenes. Did you know that the Governator is there too? :)

baterya said...

I just saw the movie and it was great!! They did alot of real explosions like back in the days where movies were filmed using real action and not computer graphics. Too bad all these actors came together for only one film. There has to be more movies like this.
