Four powerhouse documentaries play at The Bloor this week (including two of the year's best) alongside a plethora of special events.
Arguably the best film of the franchise The Expendables 3 takes a lighter, sillier tone than its predecessors to deliver some passable action movie fun.
We talk to former MMA fighter turned actor Randy Couture about returning for The Expendables 3, acting alongside other fighters, and why he and Dolph Lundgren could never fit in a tank.

Lots to go through this week on the home entertainment front including the coal in the stocking that is the Paul Rudd/Paul Giamatti team-up All is Bright, the Blu-Ray debut of the exceptional astronaut drama The Right Stuff, John Carpenter's ill fated TV pilot Body Bags, the toothless political drama The Attack, charming Irish creature feature Grabbers, the passable Dolph Lundgren/Randy Couture drug actioner Ambushed, and the gleefully sick Canadian sleaze flick, Junkie
This week at the video store we look at the winning animated adventure ParaNorman, the action blockbuster The Expendables 2, the dance-stravaganza Step Up Revolution, the crap-stravaganza The Apparition, and a pair of films that missed theatrical releases despite being directed by Joe Dante and Amy Heckerling.
Does shit blow up? Yes. Does everyone get at least one good scene to showcase their talents? Yes. Is it better than the first film? Yes, and by quite a bit actually.
We talked to Expendables 2 co-stars Terry Crews and Randy Couture about teaming up once again with Sylvester Stallone and crew, shooting in Bulgaria, why this film was more relaxed than the first, casting rumours for the third film, and if Terry Crews thinks his crew could beat up The Avengers.
