Mindless action films have been a staple of American cinema ever since Sylvester Stallone mumbled and murdered his way through “Rambo: First Blood Part II” and “Rambo III.” “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” directed by Jon M. Chu, is another patriotic installment on this list filled to the brim with big-name actors.

Taproot's first ever Fall Music Festival
Thank you, George Harrison. On behalf of me and perhaps The Pica Beats as well, thank you for making the sitar cool in pop music.

Zombie movies have become a joke. The ravenous undead are no longer terrifying. Now they're stupid, shambling mannequins on which laughable premises are thrust.
Jellybeans don’t just come in Easter baskets anymore. This shooter will knock you on your rump, so pay attention. Pour half an ounce of the blackberry brandy into a shot glass, filling it about a third of the way. Slowly pour in a third of a shot of Sambuca, which will layer it due to the differing densities of the alcohols. Layer the Southern Comfort on top.
I like to think of myself as a pretty decent gaming critic. But with that said, with the many new releases that I cover...
