The movie action hero after Sandy Hook: Is it time for a 'Bullet To The Head'?

Remember the good old days when people could enjoy watching an action hero who shoots a lot of people without feeling like they were contributing to the ruin of society? Sylvester Stallone sure hopes so. The well-preserved Rocky and Rambo star, now 66, is back in theaters this week with Bullet To The Head, his first solo vehicle since The Expendables franchise (made in collaboration with his grumpy frat pack bash brothers) Viagra’d his brand of brawn. Stallone’s latest feature, directed by the venerable action maestro Walter Hill (The Warriors; 48 Hours), seems poured from the mold that he helped forge back in the day with Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Willis.

Bullet To The Head follows Schwarzenegger’s post-Governator comeback bid, The Last Stand, and ahead of A Good Day To Die Hard, Willis’ fifth stint as insurance nightmare John “I can’t believe this is happening to me AGAIN!” McLane.

All of Tarantino's pop culture references in chronological order -- VIDEO

But now, thanks to the diligent folks over at College Humor, you won’t have to. They’ve put together a supercut with all of Tarantino’s pop culture references, and what’s more, they’re arranged in chronological order. So, starting with a nod to silent film star Max Linder in Inglorious Basterds, it works its way through the decades until it screeches to a halt on a Lindsay Lohan comment in Death Proof. Think of it as really profane, rapid-fire history lesson from a distinguished cinephile. Yeah, that’s Tarantino in a nutshell.
