Helium

Today I received an email with new Right Said Fred music and I immediately felt like maybe it was time for everyone to jump off of the 90s nostalgia train.  Thankfully though, that ridiculousness was canceled out by word from Helium that reissues of The Dirt Of Luck, The Magic City and the No Guitars [...]

Movie Breakdown: Power Rangers (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: I grew up watching the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I sat my 8-year old ass down on my bright red beanbag chair with a soda and a stack of cookies and watched 5 color-coded ninjas fight grown humans in rubber suits. Do I think it needs an edgy remake? No. But it’s 2017 [...]

Raised Eyebrows: RIP Larry Coryell (Randy)

Movie Breakdown: Personal Shopper (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: I’ve never seen an Olivier Assayas film, but the guy is a real art-house rock star in France and abroad and his first hangout sesh with K-Stew, Clouds of Sils-Maria was well received. This might be a film I can get into. Post-Screening Stance: I’m going to be very honest: I didn’t get [...]

Movie Breakdown: Life

Pre-Screening Stance: I didn’t much like director Daniel Espinosa’s Safe House, but that’s not stopping me from looking forward to Life.  The film has a nice Alien vibe, and it stars the talented trio of Jake Gyllenhaal, Ryan Reynolds and Rebecca Ferguson.  Cue it up! Post-Screening Ramble: If I didn’t know any better, I’d think [...]

Show Of The Week

Oh my.  Who wants to go to a show the week after SXSW?  Probably none of you, but that doesn’t change the fact that there are still some good ones happening.  My favorite of the bunch is My Education’s party at Sidewinder on Saturday.  The instrumental post-rock act will actually being doing two sets – [...]

Do Make Say Think

While doing some digging to see what I missed during the chaotic lead-up to SXSW, I came across some new music from famed post-rockers Do Make Say Think.  Apparently, the band has a new album – their first in a solid eight years – that’s coming on May 19 via Constellation Records.  The LP is [...]

Movie Breakdown: Beauty And The Beast

Pre-Screening Stance: Like most, I adore the animated Beauty And The Beast film from 1991.  Also like most, I’m not entirely sure it needs a live action version.  Still, I love what Disney did last year with The Jungle Book and Pete’s Dragon, so I might as well be all in on Bill Condon’s adaptation of [...]

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

March in Austin, Texas means only one thing, SXSW. While the rest of the country is absorbed by Spring Break or something like that, we are inundated by music industry professionals every year to do their own version of it, the gauntlet of 20 hours straight drinking, and attempting to eat one of every taco [...]

Movie Breakdown: Raw

Pre-Screening Stance: Apparently, Raw is so gruesome that it’s made people pass out.  Then again, I know lots of folks who saw it at Fantastic Fest last year and no one fainted, so maybe that’s just an overblown thing?  Either way, the film has been getting good reviews and I’m anxious to check it out.

Movie Breakdown: Kong: Skull Island (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: Hey, as good as the promotional stuff has been for this movie, and as much as I love John Goodman and Brie Larsen, this is probably going to be an enormous CGI-filled creature feature bereft of character but ripe with a giant ape punching things. Post-Screening Ramble: I think Kong: Skull Island would [...]
