Egypt, Iraq, Iran, and Afghanistan all get turns in the cinematic spotlight this week in a monster movie, the story of a dog and his girl, an expat drama, and a war doc, respectively. Some are better than others.
And of course you can’t think of the Middle East without thinking of Merry Old England, so there’s a couple of Britpics — modern and otherwise.
Sadly, we couldn't make it to this week’s big new horror release — and we don’t mean The Mummy. (But we didn’t miss La Granja.)
