Movie Review: Sin City: A Dame to Kill for (2014)

Written by Anthony Sargon

I enjoyed the original Sin City. It was different, it was fresh, and it was fun. Nine years later, it’s certainly not going to feel different or fresh, but is still any fun? It is…to some degree, but after such a long wait and a slew of comic book/graphic novel adaptations in between, it feels like too little too late, and judging by the meager box office, audiences seem to agree.

Movie Review: Let's be cops (2014)

Written by Anthony Sargon

I genuinely laughed out loud a number of times while watching the Let’s Be Cops trailer. The movie seemed to be taking full advantage of a clever premise, and the chemistry between its two leading stars looked like something I could latch on to. Unfortunately, if you’ve seen the trailer, you’ve also seen the film’s funniest bits. I have no doubt that some audience members will find plenty to like about Let’s Be Cops, but it’s way too lazy and conventional to be the breakout comedy many of us were hoping for.

Movie Review: The Expendables 3 (2014)

Written by Anthony Sargon

I have no qualms with dumb action movies that are actively trying to be dumb action movies. While the Transformers franchise has managed to convince its fan-base that it’s ok to settle for crappy storytelling in order to sit through three hours of visual effects, one franchise has reveled in its silliness and stupidity from the get-go: The Expendables. Well, Stallone and co. are back for part three, and it does exactly what it sets out to do.

Islamic State Group Becomes Target of Arab Satire

The "Looney Tunes"-style cartoon targeting the Islamic State group comes after its militants have swept across large swaths of Syria and Iraq, declaring their own self-styled caliphate while conducting mass shootings of their prisoners. The group cheers its advances and beheadings in slickly produced Internet videos.
