They Will Win Golden Globes 2018

The Golden Globes are already coming up. The show will be on NBC this Sunday and Seth Meyers debuts as host. Should be a solid experience, but perhaps with few surprises.

Zoolander 2

LONG TIME NO Z. Former fashion icons Zoolander and Hansel (Ben Stiller, Owen Wilson) are reunited after many years to help Interpol find out who’s assassinating pop stars.

True Blood

Four Best Iraq War Movies

On Hardball with Chris Matthews last Tuesday, writer Wayne Slater suggested that Republicans are finally coming to terms with the fact that the Iraq War was “mismanaged”, which was quite the understatement in Matthews’s eyes. Ten years after U.S. troops rolled into Iraq looking for weapons of mass destruction that didn’t exist, America is trying to … Continue reading Four Best Iraq War Movies
