-Green Zone: Another Hollywood Anti-Iraq War Flop- Will They Ever learn?

Heavy PR and advertizing notwithstanding, Green Zone opened with a miserable $14.3 million box office over the last weekend.

It joins a dozen or so failed anti-Bush anti-war […]

Theater release: August 14, 2009 by Sony Pictures; Directed by: Neill Blomkamp; Cast: Sharlto Copley (Wikus Van De Merwe), Vanessa Haywood (Tania Van De Merwe) This is definitely not a movie for children, the violence is far too graphic.

-Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen (PG-13)

Theater release: June 24, 2009 by Dreamworks; Directed by: Michael Bay; Runtime: 2 hours 30 minutes; Cast: Shia LaBeouf (Sam Witwicky), Megan Fox (Mikaela Banes), John Turturro (Agent Simmons), Ramon Rodriquez (Leo), Josh Duhamel (Captain Lennox) The second installment of ‘Transformers’ from my perspective wasn’t near as good as the first. ‘Revenge’ really had no […]
