Flashback: LAH talk chicks, diaper rash

This week's "Flashback Friday" column comes to us straight out of late 2006, when DRock and Goat sifted through letters from thousands of rabid LAH fans. The dynamic duo not only answered critiques from female readers who felt the column was too male-centric, but also looked into potential connections between JCVD and butt paste.

Flashback: ‘Tango & Cash’ is money

This week Goat and DRock are taking the "Flashback Friday" machine all the way back to 1989 — when Sly Stallone and Kurt Russel teamed up to take down the likes of Clint Howard and Jack Palance. Between debating the artistic and ass-kicking merits of the titular characters, the Last Action Heroes manage to crank out a review of this classic buddy cop flick.

Statham not immune to making horrible movies

Jason Statham’s been getting a lot of Last Action Heroes love lately. Now I like Statham. He’s got a sweet accent, he’s pretty badass and he makes some good action movies. But I think it’s only fair to point out that even Statham makes a truly horrible movie here and there. And I’m not talking […]

Neeson kicks ass, takes stuff without mercy

Don’t f*** with Liam Neeson. Just don’t. That’s more or less the central thesis of "Taken," which made its long-awaited (at least to the Last Action Heroes) move to DVD on Tuesday. Simply put, this movie is awesome. It’s a true action movie. There’s a clearly defined action star, some bad acting, an easy-to-follow plot and a small army of bad guys who get dead.

Much has been made of the eternal struggle between professional wrestlers and mysterious foreigners. In this edition of "Flashback Fridays," Goat and DRock debate the strengths and weaknesses of both groups as it relates to the action world. Is JCVD truly superior to Hulk Hogan? Could The Rock lay to smack down on Seagal? There's only one way to find out...

Cena faces off with dogs, bicyclists in ’12 Rounds’

"12 Rounds" is not a good movie. Hell, it's not even a very good action movie. I wanted to like it. I really did. Simply crunching some numbers on this film, it seems destined for success. For starters, you've got John Cena in the starring role. The professional wrestler-turned-actor is made for the action genre. He's built like a tank, is fairly charismatic and has declared his love for "Commando" in past interviews. He gave a somewhat "meh" performance in "The Marine," but I'm willing to give anyone a second chance.
