So, you remember Iran? That was the country that has harassed the US and Israel, and others, for the last 40 years or so? The ones who may have a nuke soon (despite the "agreement"). Well, they allegedly are sending ships to the US waters...we Didn't know they could row that far...
What is I told you a store that has a good product and prices wanted to open in a suburban area that, well, may need a little investing? Pretty cool right? So, why would that community say "NO"? We will discuss.

"Jachnun!" We command you to join us for our review of Sacha Baron Cohen's hilarious new political comedy, 'The Dicator'! Is Cohen's first fully scripted film good enough to make us forget 'Bruno'? Can it possibly live up to 'Borat', and should we even be comparing the two?
Plus, Hasbro's classic naval warfare board game from all of our childhoods is back in Peter Berg's 'Battleship'! Does Universal have a summer hit on their hands? Or will the audiences leave feeling sunk?

Check out our (late) 'Dark Shadows' review, a brief review of Battleship and why it sank plus other movie and tv news and other assorted geekery.
The history of military technological development is replete with examples of personal zealotry, which drove the advancement of new weapons and ideas about warfare. In the emerging arena of aerial warfare, several such airpower evangelists appeared in the early 20th Century to champion the possibilities of this new kind of military technology. Within the American military, that evangelist was Brig. Gen. William “Billy” Mitchell. A firm believer in the capability of air power to become the dominant force in combat, Mitchell was an uncompromising zealot with strong personal ambitions and his own sense of destiny driving him. One of the key obstacles to his vision of air power becoming the dominant defense force for the United States however, was the U.S. Navy and it's strong support of the battleship as its weapon of choice following World War I. This led to a inter-service war between Mitchell and the Navy, which was fought out in the press, the halls of Congress and the White House, and eventually at his court-martial for insubordination. Despite this, Mitchell's legacy continues today, as the modern U.S. Air Force that he envisioned almost 100 years ago, serves as a cornerstone of the American military.
To learn more about Billy Mitchell and his war with the Navy, join military historian, author and journalist John D. Gresham (@greshamj01) for Military Monday (#MilitaryMonday at @Writestream) at 1 p.m. Eastern. His guest this week will be U.S. Naval Institute Press (@USNIPress) writer Thomas Wildenberg, author of BILLY'S MITCHELL'S WAR WITH THE NAVY. Together they will lay out Billy Mitchell's career and actions, with culminated in his own professional destruction. Listeners are encouraged to call in to offer questions and opinions, as both gentlemen discuss one of the most controversial military figures of the 20th Century.
Are You Screening? hosts Marc Eastman and Shane Leonard will be reviewing The Dictator.
While not huge fans of Borat or Bruno, it's hard to say we aren't interested to see what this one has to offer. Moving more into the realm of an actual "movie," the fusing of the highly improvisational with something that has a real script should be entertaining.
We'll also be playing a couple of interview clips with Sir Ben Kingsley.
We also have Are You Screening? writer Christopher Lominac showing up with his take on Battleship.
Please visit http://www.thirstfilm.com for all the details. The film also stars Melanie Griffith.
