The guys who gave us some great musicals based on Arnold Schwarzenegger’s career highlights (including Predator: The Musical, Conan the Barbarian: The Musical, Total Recall: The Musical, Batman and Robin: The Musical, Terminator 2: The Opera, and Commando: The Musical), and took a jab or two at Sylvester Stallone with Rocky IV: The Musical, give us a musical version of the only film to star both 80’s action legends. Ladies and gentlemen, I offer you The Expendables: The Musical.

The latest issue of The Flash begins a new story arc as the Scarlet Speedster has relocated to Keystone City letting everyone back home believe Barry Allen is dead. I’m less sure about The Flash leaving Central City than Barry Allen letting his true identity die (which I’m really not in favor of), but as long as writers Francis Manapul and Brian Buccellato keep this arc relatively short I’m willing to see how things play out.

Merchandising maniacs KISS (I hear they also occasionally play music) and Hello Kitty have combined to produce… Hello Kitty KISS Toilet Paper? Thanks, but I really didn’t need to know what our pal Eric plans to wipe his ass with for the foreseeable future.

Cat Run

With Cat Run director John Stockwell and screenwriters Nick Ball and John Niven deliver a derivative action flick that wants so hard to be cool it’s almost embarrassing. Mixing a healthy dose of nudity with brutal stylized violence (including torture scenes with a cigar cutter and dental drill), a plot that doesn’t make all that much sense, and intentionally bizarre characters (such as D.L. Hughley as a one-armed, no legged, office worker) Cat Run is one mess of a film.

Our story takes place in Eastern Europe where genius introvert (Scott Mechlowicz) turned failed chef and his childhood best friend (Alphonso McAuley) decide (for no apparent reason) to start a low rent detective agency above a porno theater in Montenegro. Their first client is a prostitute named Cat (Paz Vega) who stole their car and phone and is the sole remaining witness to a series of brutal murders. Well, client is a rather strong word as no one actually hired these likable but ridiculous pair to find anyone.
