‘The Expendables 2’ / ‘True Romance’

If you’ve been following Sound on Sight for any length of time, you’ll know that, for all of our love and affection for arthouse and foreign film, not to mention documentaries, we love a good terrible action film. So we thought it might be fun to check in on Sylvester Stallone’s latest ensemble action pic, The Expendables 2, directed by Simon West (Con Air, The Mechanic). After that, we take a look back at True Romance, Tony Scott’s cult actioner (scripted by Quentin Tarantino), in the wake of Scott’s death this past week. Ricky D and Simon Howell are joined by guest host Deepayan Sengupta.
