Amiable action comedy proves old people can still kick ass

Lethal Weapon may not have been the first film to coin the phrase, “I’m too old for this shit!” But since then, every film wishing to jokingly acknowledge the fact that its action star is a day or two past his prime has tipped a hat in the direction of Danny Glover and company. The phrase—for better or worse—has become a pop cultural trope. Now comes Red, which may very well be the ne plus ultra in “I’m getting too old for this shit!” action cinema.

Cancellations arrive early this season

TV’s deadpool seems particularly shallow this season. The fall 2010 TV season has barely started and already we’ve got two major casualties. FOX’s polygamist Texas con man drama “Lone Star” and ABC’s high-school-plus-10-years faux-documentary drama “My Generation” were both canceled last week after only two airings apiece.

Week in Sloth

The Week in Sloth

Thursday 14

“30 Rock” (KOB-4 7:30 p.m.) Thursday’s funniest show goes live for one night and one night only! Network censors already sweat whenever Tracy Morgan appears on screen.

Friday 15

Mummy Marathon (TCM 6 p.m.) It’s classic horror movies all month long on TCM, of course. But here’s a neat little accretion of mummy flicks. It starts out at 6 p.m. with 1959’s The Mummy and races through several not as good, but still fun Hammer Film Productions horrors: Curse of the Mummy’s Tomb at 7:45 p.m., The Mummy’s Shroud at 9:15 p.m. and Blood from the Mummy’s Tomb at 11 p.m. Stick around for Blood. It’s got Valerie Leon in it. You’ll thank me for that.
