Last month we introduced a new wrestling debate column where we let two wrestling fans, dubbed FACE and HEEL, duke it out over a subject (SEE: How Was the 2014 Royal Rumble?). This week they are arguing if it is a good or bad idea for Sting to join the WWE.
FACE: How could anyone argue that Sting wouldn’t be a great addition to WWE? We’re talking about one of the most storied veterans who has never wrestled in the company. Sting would get to cap off his career at the only true major wrestling company left in the world. It’s good for him, it’s good for WWE. It’s good for fans.
HEEL: Here’s a simple fact: Sting is 54 years old. He’s older than The Undertaker. He’s older than Billy Gunn who WWE has foolishly made tag champ again. As CM Punk said, he has nothing left in the tank. What is WWE going to do with him? A match between him and The Undertaker at Wrestlemania would be horrible. A match between him and anybody else would mean that other wrestler has to carry his broken down body. It’s not worth what WWE would pay him.
FACE: There are a lot of things Sting could help WWE with. Under a legends contract he would be a huge draw.
HEEL: Would he? It has been a long time since WCW. Since 2003 Sting has been languishing in TNA, the fed that fans forgot. His cache is past.
FACE: I think you are wrong. There are a lot of old time fans, parents of kids who watch WWE today, who still remember Sting. He’s still a great talker. He could be a manager. He could be a General Manager.
HEEL: Just what WWE needs, more people who can talk and not wrestle.
FACE: Imagine if Sting had even one match left in him. He could put over some young guy. Imagine the credibility that a guy like, say, Cesaro would get from being the man who ended Sting’s career. And you know Sting is a decent enough guy to do it.
HEEL: I say let TNA keep paying his salary. It will only speed them towards bankruptcy that much faster.
FACE: I can’t imagine TNA is paying him that much. So let him earn some real money towards his retirement. Sting’s biggest objection to WWE has always been the questionable content. These days WWE is PG and TNA is TV-14. It’s actually a better fit.
HEEL: It’s the old line: “it’s better to rule in Hell than serve in Heaven.” In TNA, Sting is unquestionably a star. In WWE he’d be one face lost in a crowd of wrestlers past their prime.
FACE: Bret Hart won the United States championship at 52 despite having had a stroke.
HEEL: And vacated it the next week. It was a joke of a win.
FACE: Bottom line, I think WWE can find a place for Sting and it would be the feather in the cap of his career.
HEEL: Bottom line, Sting should stay where he can be of some help, not just fade into the background of WWE.
How about you? Do you think Sting should end his career in the WWE?

Another day. Another Marvel Comics issue #1. This one is for the Fantastic Four, just in time for their 75th Anniversary. While I am very happy that Marvel Comics has not rebooted their universe like DC Comics did with the “New 52,” it is very silly that most Marvel titles get renumbers to 1 along with a new creative team after 12 to 24 issues (Fantastic Four is going back to issue 1 after only 16 issues).
The All-New Marvel Now! team for the first family of superheroes is writer James Robinson and artist Leonard Kirk. Issue #1 kicks off “The Fall of the Fantastic Four,” and sees the return of one of their oldest foes, Fing-Fang-Foom, along with ditching their traditional blue and black color scheme for a darker red and black. Where will this new direction take them?
Fantastic Four #1
Official Description: The world’s greatest comics magazine begins anew with Marvel’s First Family, the Fantastic Four! But as the brilliant MR. FANTASTIC, the compassionate INVISIBLE WOMAN, the ever lovin’ THING & the hot-headed HUMAN TORCH embark on a strange mission, they aren’t met with new beginnings, but an untimely end! As the family of cosmic explorers head towards their darkest hour, who could possibly be behind their downfall? And how is one of their oldest enemies, the sadistic dragon known as Fing-Fang-Foom involved? Prepare for the fantastic!
This new #1 hits stands on Wednesday February 26th from Marvel Comics! Also launching on Wednesday is Revolutionary War: Supersoldiers.

The film is based on a documentary book by Robert M. Edsel and Bret Witter. It is all about the greatest treasure hunt in history. Events unfold in the years of World War II, when Adolf Hitler came to power. He visited Italy and was just amazed at the beauty of this city. Perhaps at this time he decided to assemble the largest collection of art objects. Whatever it was, his art critics were secretly conducting an inventory of museum treasures from various European cities. Well, everyone knows about what happened to these values in the future: the agents of the Third Reich did not disregard any museum or private collection.
However, The Monuments Men (2014) movie tells not about them, but the heroes of the war who are rarely mentioned in history books. This is the story of the art critics who voluntarily put on uniforms to move with the army often being on the front line to save the works of Rubens and Vermeer, Rembrandt and Van Dyck. The search for these treasures demanded from them not only courage, but also exceptional detective abilities. That is why the film based on the documentary book (very wittily written), turned out to be more fascinating than any thriller. Great cast, interesting directorial finds, beautiful camera work – this is something that is worth watching. It is one of the most important productions proposed in 2014. And it’s not just the artistic merits of the movie. It brings us back to one of the most important topics about which lately is not often remembered and used to say quite rare. Well, the story about courage – this is true in any era.
The Monuments Men is based on true events about the greatest worldwide hunt for precious treasures in the whole history. In those days when there was a severe war, some people who were engaged in a variety of art and artifacts would come together in a few groups in order to save at least something. For example, works of art of the greatest painters that somehow were stolen by the Nazis and the best part was specifically destroyed, but not all objects of art were destroyed, and before the Nazis have time to destroy them, they need to hurry. A small group of people need to have time and patience to find and to pick up all the expensive artifacts as quickly as possible.
George Clooney has left only the most famous masters: Michelangelo, Picasso, Rembrandt – in short, only recognizable “brands”. Clooney’s art critics behave as if they are not scientists, but enthusiastic amateurs: we won’t hear any curious and original thinking about the art. And when you consider that Clooney caricatured the stereotypes concerning his nationality in each character, it becomes clear that the film in front of us is intended to be a hit of the movie world. No more and no less.

I’d rather not talk about the Dexter series finale. It was so off the mark- so horrible, that I wish there was a TV show version of Dexter that could kill it, chop it up, and throw the pieces into the Ocean. It was such an insult to the series, that it taints all of the seasons before it. I need something to cleanse it from my brain. That finale can not be the last Dexter related story that I experience.
Here is hoping that Marvel Comics is able to tell a story true to the character and seasons that came before. Dexter Down Under pulls our favorite anti-hero from Miami and plants him into a very different atmosphere, Australia. It could be refreshing to see Dexter in a new setting, will he be a fish out of water, or will he fit in nicely among the local predators?
Dexter Down Under #1
Official Description: It’s a new, blood-soaked adventure starring Dexter Morgan, who isn’t just Miami’s #1 forensic blood splatter expert…he’s also a serial killer who targets other serial killers! When Dexter travels down under, he quickly discovers that sharks aren’t Australia’s only deadly predator!
Dexter Down Under hit comic book stores on February 19, 2014, which means that you can go out and get it now! Check it out and let us know what you think in the comments!

One day the main character of Starred Up movie gets in custody not even trying to fight for liberation, but why? Maybe he knows that no one will rescue him? Or does he really feel guilty? The man was accused in the death of some of his close friends, but he is confident and knows that all this is just a coincidence. But now it does not matter, because he does not care where to live now – in prison or at liberty, because he has no close friends, they all died. The guy is serving his time in jail, but in the meantime he may rethink his whole life and make plans for the future. All of this will only be in the case if he successfully leaves the walls of the prison and be able to achieve something. At the moment, our hero can only remember some of the moments of his life, as well as condemn himself for not being able to help the ones he loved.
Starred Up Trailer tends to be promising that the film will be very interesting, with a complex plot. The movie tells the story of a teenager who went to jail and became friends with a man who turned to be his father. Young Eric was able to develop a good interaction with the corrupt British police. However, this does not save him from falling into a real prison where he first encounters with his father. Because of its unbalanced and ill nature, instead of a youth custody center young offender Eric gets in the same prison with his father Neville. A volunteer psychotherapist Oliver who sees great potential in the guy helps Eric to avoid conflict with the security and cellmates here. While cultivating his own abilities, Eric comes to the conclusion that he should forgive his father until it was too late… It is definitely an interesting look at the English prison and the former street kids in it…
The World premiere of the British drama was held on September 9, 2013 in Canada as a part of the film festival in Toronto. Then the film was released in France on December 15, 2013, and it will be released in UK theaters in March, 2014. Starred Up was directed by David Mackenzie, produced by James Atherton, Katherine Butler, Sam Lavender, Jan Pace, Peter Hampden and Gillian Berrie, and stars Jack O’Connell, Peter Ferdinando, David Ajala, Sam Spruell, Anthony Welsh, Ben Mendelsohn, Ashley Chin, David Avery, Rupert Friend, Sian Breckin, Raphael Sowole, Gilly Gilchrist.
