Whose Next???

Hello Movie Fans:

 Yet another year is coming to an end and that can only mean one thing: All of the action stars we grew up with, are another year older. With that being said, who do we have in the future of movies that can take the box office by storm and fill this gap now being left open from our "Ensure" & "Retirement" stars of the 80's & 90's:

  • Bruce Willis
  • Sly Stallone
  • Steven Seagal
  • Arnold  Schwarzenegger
  • Jean Claude Van Damme
  • Jet Li
  • Jackie Chan
  • Chuck Norris
  • Kurt Russell
  • Tom Cruise
  • Harrison Ford
  The funny thing is, almost everyone I listed above is in the upcoming ACTION movie "Expendables 2" coming in the summer of 2012, and of course it will make a crap load of money...but I wanted this movie 15 - 20 years ago when these guys were in their prime. I do not want to see my childhood hero's barely able to walk, skin falling off of them due to abused steroid use, and noticeable STAND-IN STUNTMEN to take the place of our beloved action starts who can no longer do or attempt to do their own stunts.

  As for our future...who do we have...the list is short, almost non-existent. We have had MAIN STREAM actors make the attempt to be ACTION STARS:
  • Denzel Washington
  • Matt Damon
  • Liam Neeson
  • Jermey Renner
  • Chris Hemsworth
  • Robert Downey Jr
  • Chris Evans
  • Daniel Craig
  The above are great actors, but none of them in my eyes are what the first list was or will ever be. Perhaps we are in a different age of movies, and we will not see our Predators, Terminators, Missing in Action, Indiana Jones...etc. We are going to get another "Die Hard", "Mission Impossible", but we all know these will come to an end soon enough.

  Now that we are in the age of Computer Generated Graphics, movies are not made like they once were. Perhaps our old stars will be with us for many years to come now that we are able to give them the Fountain of Youth with the assistance of computers. Then again...nobody lives forever, and neither do our action stars...even if we see them do superhuman things on the screen...they are just human and they do get old.
