Action Movie Calendar

 2019 2018 2017 2016

 

Closing out 2018, it seemed like there were less and less Action Movies in theatres
(and many I would have like to see on the big screen going straight to disc).
 Are Action Movies dying out for good?  Will audiences ever tire of Comic Book movies?!

Where are tomorrow's big beefy Action Figures coming from?
Will they be female? Isn't it past due that we have truly strong women on screen?
The Rock's daughter Simone? Any of Arnold's kids? Van Damme's daughter? Will Ronda stop wrestling?

When will they finally make She Hulk (Gaby Garcia? RIP Chyna)
Can they do it without it being ridiculous/unintentionally humorous?
She would have to take a ton of shit first before using her power . . . like Strong Woman Do Bong Soon.

Wendy Crouse has Director, Writer, voice star, Producer, Cinematography, Film Editing, and Sound Editor credits. Cast has 6 women (not counting Wendy's narration) and 2 men.

Lord must learn to trust Dara and the Mossad to survive and trust is something he doesn't do, especially when dodging drone missiles and countless attempts on his life.

The book inspired the film's television-based predecessor, ABC's Lee Majors led The Six Million Dollar Man as well as spin-of series The Bionic Woman.
