Sylvestor Stallone Movie Expendables 3 is a 'Flop'

Stallone embarrassed
Expendables 3 is a flop with poor opening debut

The Sylvestor Stallone produced movie, Expendables 3, is a flop, says Yahoo! Movies, among other movie review sites. They base this on the extremely poor opening weekend, estimated to stay below $16 million in the US through Sunday of the opening weekend.

In comparison, Expendables 1 opening weekend grossed $34.8 million, and Expendables 2 grossed $28.6 million. The extremely poor revenue earnings for Expendables 3 has secured it the flop status, and may even earn Sylvestor Stallone a Razzie Award for poor acting.

Opening Weekend Update: As of Sunday (08/17/14) at 7:51 a.m., Expendables 3 had $16.2 million in revenue. (Source: Deadline)

The one-liner of the movie that stands out is said by Jason Statham: "Morons need friends."

Expendables 3 Gets Many Bad Reviews

The Atlantic says in regards to Expendables 3: "no movie this stupid should be this complicated." Ouch.

Sylvestor Stallone openly admitted to Entertainment Weekly back in 2011 this: "I like using people that had a moment and then maybe have fallen on some hard times."

Rotten Tomatoes says Expendables 3 is 35% rotten (not good), and that only 54% of audience goers like the movie.

Screen Rant gives Expendables 3, 2.5 out of 5 stars.

Cast of Expendables 3

The following actors are in the movieExpendables 3: Jason Statham, Jet Li, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Sylvestor Stallone, Terry Crews, Dolph Lundgren, Antonio Banderas, Wesley Snipes, Harrison Ford, and Mel Gibson.

Entertainment Weekly believes that Antonio Banderas was the best actor in the whole movie.

Did Online Piracy Hurt Expendables 3?

Variety reported that Expendables 3 was downloaded 189,000 times in the first 24 hours since it was first leaked online in July 2014. Variety suggested that this will hurt its theatrical debut, since "young males" are more likely to be pirating movies illegally, and this is the target audience.

For reference, when 15 million people download a movie illegally, it represents tens of millions of lost revenue dollars.

Various movie review sites are very critical of this movie, and believe that there is not much to the storyline, and that Director Patrick Hughes is not exactly a seasoned director, which adds to the problems of the movie.
Sylvestor Stallone can't be happy that critics are calling his action movie a flop. View the trailer below.

Fish Plays Pokemon: Watch the Live Stream on Twitch

                     Official picture of 'Fish plays Pokemon' created by Reddit user Sundreamers

A fish plays Pokemon on Twitch, and people go nuts. Over 2 million people have tuned into the live stream to see Grayson (the fish) move about in his fish bowl and play Pokemon -- or so we are told. But it gives the people something to watch during times of extreme boredom. There is no sound to this live stream, because Beta fish can't be heard underwater without an extremely sensitive microphone.

How Fish Plays Pokemon was Born

Catherine Moresco and Patrick Facheris combined brains to come up with the idea for this brilliant idea for HackNY. They decided to assign 9 quadrants of a fish bowl to a corresponding button on a traditional Nintendo Gameboy. Whenever the fish moves from one quadrant to another, it will then press the corresponding button or arrow to move the player in the Pokemon game. The result is a fish playing Pokemon.

To everyone's surprise, Grayson has already won one battle in Pokemon already with his Charmander (a fire salamander) named 'AAAABBK', during the 160 hours of gameplay logged so far (as of 08/08/14 at 8:14 p.m.). Sometimes the fish does not move, and that is attributed to when he sleeps, because fish sleep too, ya know!

So he has a name, and his name is Grayson Hopper. Grayson is a beta fish. Some fans of the live stream want a goldfish, and have expressed so much in the live stream chat window. The owners of the live stream (Catherine Moresco and Patrick Facheris) have indicated in the "Streaming Info" section that the live stream may be down while they make upgrades.

Upgrades to Fish Plays Pokemon

In the "Streaming Info" section, Catherine Moresco and Patrick Facheris share that Grayson plays and lives in a dorm room, and there is not a dedicated light for Grayson, which would mean the live stream is very dark during sleeping hours. The owners are getting him a dedicated lamp, and they are going to improve the quality of the live stream.

Updates: On August 8, 2014, the live stream owners state that the live stream will be down for two hours while Grayson's host moves. The stream came back up around 8:34 p.m. Central Time on August 8, 2014.

Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom are usually not found in the same sentence...until this week.

Orlando Bloom Tried to Punch Justin Bieber in Ibiza, Spain

Orlando Bloom approached Justin Bieber after Justin made a comment about Orlando's ex, Miranda Kerr. Orlando then allegedly took a swing at him outside of Cipriani restaurant in Ibiza, Spain, but did not land the punch because of Justin Bieber's entourage. Some might argue that Justin Bieber is just too squirrelly to let haters land punches.

The Latino Post reports that Selena is embarrassed for her ex, Justin Bieber.

Eyewitness Shares the Details of Justin Bieber and Orlando Bloom Incident at Cipriani

The Mirror interviewed an eyewitness (Anastasia Skolkova) that said that Orlando Bloom actually took more than one swing at Justin Bieber. She sat at the table next to Orlando Bloom and Leonardo DiCaprio. When Justin Bieber came into the restaurant, he said something to upset Orlando Bloom, and that is when Orlando jumped onto a sofa to try and get at Justin Bieber. Anastasia says there were two moments when it got violent.

Leonardo DiCaprio isn't Amused by Justin Bieber

According to Anastasia, Leonardo DiCaprio was flipping out at the whole ordeal, and Lindsay Lohan was also present.

Yahoo! News shared that Leonardo DiCaprio and P. Diddy were clapping for Orlando Bloom, and Leonardo DiCaprio publicly humiliated Justin Bieber by brushing his hands at Justin Bieber. At that point, Orlando Bloom jumped over a booth and chased Justin Bieber.

Previously, at the Cannes film festival, Justin Bieber sent his entourage over to invite Leonardo DiCaprio to come and party with Justin Bieber, and Leo declined.

Justin Bieber takes to Instagram

More specifically, Justin Bieber has said that Miranda Kerr "made him a man." Wow. That must mean that Selena Gomez didn't mean much to him as he is on his conquest to sleep with married women.
