First thing’s fucking first, we here at AOBG would like to welcome YOU, dear reader to the wide-shouldered and wonderfully bare-chested world of ACTION. This page contains the chronicles of our time spent researching and critiquing the genre of Bad-Ass Cinema. A labor of our love, to be used as a window for fans of all things macho in film. Here we will give unto you our ballsy knowledge in the form of the mighty Breakdown…

New Action Team 03

What’s a Breakdown you say? Well, using the power of our impressively largeheads (and a mix-match of common internet movie review formats), we’ve put together a cornucopia template to better dissect, what we at AOBG believe to be THE necessary components that make or break great Action cinema and present them to you with our brief, witty and all-around fantastic written commentary. So, take off your shirt, flex your pecks and tent your pants, ‘cuz this time—it’s personal. ~TEAM AOBG

THE AOBG BOND BREAKDOWNS

Double-0 Seven

In much the same fashion as our Action Movie Breakdowns (located directly above), I’ve made this section specifically for my in depth look into the character and films of Bond—James, Bond. Starting from the very first live-action portrayal and spanning the 55+ year journey of the character, I plan to have an entry for every film featuring modern Action Cinema’s Greatest Hero. So, dust off your tux, pour yourself a Vesper Martini and strike up a Morland Special brand fag, it’s Bond-A-Thon time. ~RANTBO
