Games As I made very clear in my thorough review of Mass Effect 2, I'm a huge BioWare fan. This relationship got very, very cloudy when BioWare released Dragon Age II, a rush job with no story and atrocious gameplay. Mass Effect 3 looked like redemption - until I hit the terrible, terrible ending. The criticism of the ending has been so immense and consistent, BioWare is contemplating changing it. Of course, this story is riddled with spoilers, so be warned.

Action Movies aren't supposed to be taken seriously. Commando is to be watched with a few mates and some beers.

Tbh if one actually actually thinks about the plot of Rambo IV the only reason why he saved the Christians was pretty much because the Rita from Dexter is very pretty ...

The only reason he saves the prisoners in Rambo II is because the pretty girl dies and he goes mental. Seriously his plans were "run away and have babies with pretty girl I have just met".

Rambo I & III was a sausage fest.

If they aren't supposed to be taken seriously, then it doesn't matter what the end is.

I think what you meant was that action movies are supposed to have predictable endings. Even that, I'm not so sure about, Die hard had a few twists in the series. Most Schwarzenegger's did too.

I think too many people have come to redefine an action movie as " a movie directed by Michael bay". They don't all have to be that bad.

Micheal Bay movies are crap except for "The Rock". Sorry CGI crap isn't an action movie ... the action movie was of the VHS era and died soon after.

The point is that the VHS action heroes wasn't supposed to be taken seriously. Stallone and Arnie made jokes about each other in their movies ... Demolition man and Last Action Hero.

These guys know what their audience wants to see and provides it ... why The Expendables did so well ... minium CGI rubbish, and more big blokes punching the crap outta one another and making cheesy one liners.
