The director is no longer attached to the developing biopic on Martin Luther King Jr., but the reason as to why may perk your interests.

Blake Lively and Benicio Del Toro in Savages
Oliver Stone's Savages feels like a comeback. Maybe it is, in that it's a comeback into mainstream cinema. His last film was a sequel to Wall Street, and that film has already been lost to time. This is a big crime-filled ensemble drama/action movie, and it looks like a winner (mostly). The film is due out July 6, and features Benicio Del...

I think critics should have to state what political party they belong to before submitting a review. Although there is NOTHING ethical about that and a critic or an audience member should be able enjoy a good movie with or without agreeing with it. BUT it does seem like reviews are being effected by which side of the coin you're on. I think they best way to settle this is to see for yourself....
