Meaning in Tragedy

When blame does no good

I live in Maine. Not only do I live here but I also grew up in its rural parts and, as a citizen of the farm town of Corinth for a good chunk of my life, I understand that people around these parts absolutely love the rights the Second Amendment guarantees them. Most of my classmates were hunters, so I understand the culture that revolves around Mainers and the guns they love. These are a passionate, hearty people and I have nothing against them exercising their constitutional right to bear arms.

I also understand that the nature of this piece may upset these well-armed folks, so I'm going to throw out the disclaimer that this has nothing to do with them. Yet it has everything to do with an association some of them belong to, so please don't introduce me to the business end of your birdshot-hucking beauties.

The Expendables 2' explodes

Action homage/parody full of exciting excess

How many action stars can comfortably fit in a film?

Sylvester Stallone seems bound and determined to find out with 'The Expendables 2,' the second installment in Stallone's ongoing deconstruction of the 1980s action film. The first movie felt like a bit of a novelty, but for this second one to succeed, Stallone was going to have to take things to the next level.

So he did.
