Let's Hope So

Save for the third installment of the Resident Evil series, Extinction, I've never been a fan of these movies about zombie mayhem, bullets, blades and bad acting (and yes, I've seen all of them, from first to recent.). Sure, the series has its moments where I can watch 'em, ignore the inconsistent storyline and have some fun with it, but I could never fully appreciate it as a guilty pleasure.. However, I am a fan of Milla Jovovitch because she's an action star that can hold her weight with the Stallone's, the Schwartzenegger's, the Statham's of bad-ass action heroes and be totally nonchalant about it. So, of course, there's a new trailer for the latest RE movie, dubbed The Final Chapter, where Alice, now re-bonded with the T-virus that gives her superhuman powers (it's best not to ask why the Umberalla Corp. does this after taking them from her in the fourth installment of the series, Afterlife), goes back to Raccoon City, the epicenter of where the virus began, to destroy Umbrella and the hordes of undead they unintentionally created. I'll just say this: anyone who uses Guns N' Roses "Paradise City" this well and makes the song even more bad-ass than it already is has my full attention, but please, Sony: when your marketing campaign says it's the final chapter, let it be so. It would be incredible to watch Milla team up with Tom Cruise in a Jack Reacher/Mission Impossible installment; seeing two actors who throw themselves into every action sequence bounce off one another; or throw down with Vin Diesel, Dwayne Johnson and company in one of the two remaining Fast & Furious movies. Jovovitch has proven time and again she can throw down with the boys, and we need more of her in the action movie genre.

Even Us Liberals Have To Deal With Annoying Loudmouths

Editor's note: the point of this post is not to target Bernie Sanders supporters. My intention is to talk about an experience I had with one person in particular and convey that I'm not a fan of his "agree with me or you're not a real liberal!" style of radio/podcasting.

From the website Dictionary.com:

I try to catch clips and stories by the Internet broadcast group whenever I get the chance because you do get to hear the stories that the mainstream media, otherwise don't usually report on, and their views are proudly progressive. I may not always completely agree with the overall points that Cenk Uygur, Ana Kasparin and Jord…

We Can Do Better, Folks.

If I have one plea to ask of my fellow liberals, it's this: please, please -- regardless of what happens with the election, don't make comedian Jimmy Dore the spokesperson for the blue cause. In case you don't know who he is, here's a brief recap: Dore is what you get when you combine Glenn Beck's wing-nutty bullshit ideas and theories, mixed with Bill Maher's smug, sometimes condescending demeanor, if you removed his ability to make an audience laugh. Lately he's been the voice for disgruntled and disillusioned Bernie Sanders supporters who believe the choice between Republican nominee Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton is a vote for the same-old establishment politics that have screwed over the middle class and enriched the top 1% and that Bernie Sanders was the only candidate that could break the spell of business as usual with a political revolution.

Dore's argument boils down to the following: the Democratic establishment needs to …

Spare Me

Sometimes you find something so incredibly stupid and so utterly irresponsible on social media that you have to address it. Last weekend was the Peoples' Summit in Chicago, where a coalition of Sanders supporters and left-wing activists flocked to a three-day event to discuss about where the movement, which started back in 2016 behind then-candidate Bernie Sanders, would and should go in the Trump era, including whether the Democratic Party can be (or should be) saved, or if the time has come to abandon the party and start a new People's party instead. Enter The Young Turks correspondent Nomiki Konst and her thoughts on why the Democratic establishment should accept and embrace independents who don't lean either with the R's or D's in primary battles.
