Sin City: A Dame To Kill For
The original Sin City hit the scene in 2005 and it was one of the more impressive movies that year, both on a technical and creative level. Frank Miller's sordid tales of life and crime in Basin City had finally come to life after years on the pages of graphic novels. Adding the boldness of Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino's vision served to make the film better.
It's almost 10 years later and Sin City: A Dame To Kill For enters the theaters with minimal push and fanfare. As it fails to live up the the first film, it may leave theaters in the same fashion.

Dilated Peoples - Directors Of Photography
After a hiatus full of solo projects and touring, the Dilated Peoples trio of DJ Babu , Rakaa, and Evidence have returned with a solid LP titled Directors of Photography.
For those of you that are unfamiliar with DP, they are narrators of the Cali B-Boy lifestyle accompanied by boom bap instrumentals and golden era record scratching.
I can't help but think that The Giver film came a few years too late.
The original novel has been published for quite a while already and given as required reading in school. It was never in my curriculum and this movie is the first that I've heard or seen the story. In that respect, it falls into same YA Dystopia category as so many of the movies that have been released recently.
I was surprised to see that The Giver predates all of them. Unfortunately, once you've seen one of them you've seen them all.
The Expendables 3
If you're in your late 20's and older, these guys are probably your heroes.
I know that a few of these guys are icons and they've provided me with some of my favorite movie moments.
Three movies later and The Expendables has done what no franchise has attempted (or succeeded with)...bringing all this star power into one project. That doesn't mean that they are the best movies in the world, but they serve a purpose as both homage and parody to an era long past in cinema.
