Savages: Sex, Drugs, Drugs & More Drugs.

Got a hankering to see savages? Then tune in to CNN's coverage of the Syrian uprising. It's brutal, authentic and free.

Oliver Stones "Savages," on the other hand, is a gratuitous blood-and-gore-fest. Which is too bad, because it seems, the movie, based on a book of the same name, could have been a pretty smart film.

The Movie Slut read that it was also supposed to be funny. The wit escaped her, too, especially when characters were spouting blood, loosing their lunch or burning to a crisp.

There's a moment in this unnecessary flick when we learn that even the best of us can become savages given a certain set of circumstances. Tell us something new, Oliver. Anyone who's loved knows about that vulnerability.
