The unfortunate movie fans who snagged a copy of the Sylvester Stallone film The Expendables now are facing a lawsuit by the movie studios for copyright infringement. it is bad enough they are downloading a copy of this horrible film. I mean I am downloading a copy myself, but only out of morbid curiosity. I mean they are not admitting to themselves why this movie sucks and the sales are not going as well as they planned, so they are coming after the pirates instead. This is an example of the greed of the major studios who only care about profits instead of the consumer. If their movies where actually worth watching like Avatar, which had beautiful scenery and a good collection of action sequences then it would be worth purchasing would it not? I know I bought a copy. This is all over the Internet, everyone is talking about this story and the effect it will have on many unlucky people who downloaded the movie and who will now face a possible lawsuit and expensive court case. http://www.wired.com/threatlevel/2011/05/bittorrent-lawsuit-checker [Wired.com] More than 23,000 Internet users will receive a letter from their ISP notifying them that their subscriber information is being made available to the lawyers suing over the 2010 Sylvester Stallone movie. As I have already said before, if the movie was actually worth buying, then it would have sold more copies than it did, I am sure a movies that is actually worth watching will sell by the truckload but horrible films like this will just fail.
This screen-shot shows Jason Statham riding in the nose of the plane manning the .50 caliber guns mounted inside the nose of the plane. This scene is where they are bearing down on a wharf with bad guys on it and they strafed the wharf and then sprayed it with aviation fuel and shot it with a flare gun, blowing it up and taking the bad guys with it. But this movie really is as bad as some people say it is, it is just mindless action and shooting machine guns with infinite ammunition and there are even water-boarding scenes to make it even more charming. I can understand why they continue to make horrible films like this, but I guess they think that it will make them huge profits with a lot of big explosions and gun-fights. But that is what they consider a worthwhile film idea these days, in the olden days of cinema they actually had a good script and some excellent dialogue and the movies that were bad like Plan 9 From Outer Space would still do achieve cult status as they are so bad they are good. But that is hard to do, making a film that will be successful due the low production budget is a matter of luck and it depends on the film maker and how the script is delivered to the screen and the story. Doctor Who had a low production budget in the early years and that show is a cult favourite. Nowadays they have a huge budget to make movies and they are still horrible productions. They rely on big explosions and mass killing for an audience.
