    Jack Nicholson is breaking retirement

    I couldn't believe it. I looked at his page just a few minutes ago, and I was absolutely floored to see he's gonna do another role after all!

    Sure, I wish it could be for a different movie. Considering how picky he is, The Expendables 4 is an odd choice. Nevertheless, I'm overwhelmed over the chance to see Jack Nicholson in a new movie. What kind of role will it be? What lines will he have? I can't wait!


    Before I saw this, I figured How Do You Know would sadly be his last movie. But that doesn't seem to be the case anymore.

    No lie, at first I saw "Jack Nicholson is..." and thought, "Oh shit, he died?!" Thankful that's not the case.

    The Expendables movies are shit, but they're kind of fun shit. It's a bizarre casting choice though, as Nicholson has never been an action star by any means.

    Good to see Jack is back but maaan... Aside from just not being good movies, I'm still sore towards the Expendables movies for how the filmmakers exploited and abused Danny Trejo in order to make that crap.
    Earth. Atomizer. Let's go.

    @LosTickaToeRest: Shit, what'd they do to Danny Trejo?!

    Honestly, what gets me the most is that The Expendables just aren't very good action movies. They're more like pastiches or parodies of them, but they're dumbed down and too "safe". The bloodshed is obviously CGI and PG-13 and very safe. There isn't any amazing fight choreography like in the Raid movies (or hell, to throw out an older benchmark, the Matrix movies... say what you want about the sequels but they all had sick action scenes). There isn't any incredible, awesome, gruesome practical effects shit like people getting ripped in half by gunfire or anything like that that was in the actual older action movies that made most of the Expendables' cast famous.

    They're really just "hey look at all these old action stars that you may or may not remember from all that shit you rented late on a Friday night at your local video store back when there was VHS! They're still alive! And doing things! Not really anything exciting, just things!" And that's a shame.

    The Expendables movies are excruciatingly boring

    Story goes that Sly told Trejo and everyone else that it was written with him in mind as one of the main stars, and used his name to help sell the movie to the studio that produced it since this was during Trejo's spike in cult-popularity through the stuff he was doing with Robert Rodriguez and it could "help bring in a latin audience". He was involved right up until official casting started and then kind of just got left out of the loop and discarded.

    Well, rumors of his appearance in Expendables 4 dropped. But this is good news! Better news even.

    I guess this is the same Nicholson who did Joker in the Batman 1989 movie. Not familiar with Toni Erdmann at all but i might watch it if i hear good things about it.
