Trainwreck Review: Not Quite Off the Rails ~ By Brett Bunge

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/22/2015 10:57 AM
Hollywood, CA...“Don’t judge me, F@#$%ers,” declares Amy Schumer via voiceover narration near the beginning of Trainwreck, after adding yet another one-night stand to her countless others. Not only does this rather blunt statement set the tone for the rest of the film, but it also asks moviegoers not to judge Ms. Schumer too harshly during her first foray onto the big screen. Schumer’s been a well-known standup comedian for several years now, and her sketch show, the deliberately innuendo-sounding Inside Amy Schumer, has been a hit on Comedy Central since 2013. The question is this: can Schumer’s frank and often harsh type of humor translate into a feature length romantic comedy?

Terrorist Threats in Perspective - U.S. Attorney's Report to the District

Posted by: thepinetree on 07/21/2015 03:35 PM
Sacramento, CA...The rise of ISIS has not only been a calamity for the people of Syria and Iraq, but a challenge to law enforcement and security agencies in this country and elsewhere. Adept at the use of social media to radicalize and inspire young people to violence, ISIS has encouraged its sympathizers throughout the world to commit acts of terrorism in its name. Recent attacks at a mosque in Kuwait, a beachside resort in Tunisia, and a protest event in Texas have brought home the fact that the threat from ISIS is real, and the diffuse nature of that threat makes it difficult to contain. The Muslim holy month of Ramadan, which includes much of July, is a month which the vast majority of Muslims regard as a time of fasting, peaceful reflection, restraint and charity. But in another measure of its moral perversion, an ISIS spokesman has urged its followers to commit acts of terror during Ramadan.
