On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable reviews Sin City: A Dame to Kill For! Is it in the same class as the original? Why were two original stories written for the film? Why didn’t the filmmakers simply adapt another of Frank Miller’s classic Sin City stories? Is the final product worthy of its impressive ensemble cast? Are audiences still interested? Did Robert Rodriguez and Frank Miller wait too long to make the sequel? Should they simply have moved on to other projects and allowed the original film to stand alone? Does the original even still hold up? Has it been surpassed by other graphic novel adaptations over the past nine years? Can the Sin City films be considered shallow exercises in style? Can they also be considered childish and misogynistic?
On this week’s edition of Scottscope Talk Radio, the roundtable discusses the murder of Michael Brown and the issue of police brutality. Are American police more racist and murderous than ever? Why aren’t murderous cops treated like the criminals that they are? How can we go about reforming and demilitarizing American police departments? Why is the issue of “Black on Black Crime” often used as a deflection whenever the issue of police brutality is brought up? What would be the most effective way to ensure that justice is served in this case? Why do so many Americans have such a hard time acknowledging racism and systematic oppression?
We’ll also be reviewing The Expendables 3! Is it the best Expendables film yet? Is it the worst? Is it high-time for Stallone and company to hang it up? Has the novelty factor of the franchises central concept finally worn off? Is Mel Gibson still a viable action star? Can he hack it as a villain? Could his villainous turn in The Expendables 3 possibly lead to a career resurgence? Is Wesley Snipes still a viable action star? Have his skills atrophied while he was away? Will there ever be an Expendables 4?
We’ll also be celebrating the life and career of Robin Williams. Where does he rank among the greatest comedians of all time? What can be considered his greatest screen performance? Can he be seen as having pioneered his own unique brand of comedy? How did he stack up as a dramatic actor? Why are Americans so dismissive of those who suffer from chronic depression? Why do so many Americans view suicide as being cowardly and selfish? Is American society bereft of empathy?
