Killarmy are famous for incorporating military conflicts, terrorism, and war movie sound-bites into their music. Their song “War Face” for example (which appeared in their debut album), referenced and sampled the drill sergeant from Stanley Kubrick’s Vietnam film Full Metal Jacket. Almost 23 years after the release of […]
COVID-19 is a Virus that some racists say is Made In China. The Coronavirus Pandemic means people have to wash their hands and refrain from touching their face. Some people have decided to wear face masks but with conflicting information from scientists, a few have decided to take […]
Ready For The World (a group from Flint, Michigan) released their debut, self-titled album in 1985 and it was a very enjoyable listen. When the group first formed, their musical style consisted of a heady mixture of R&B, Soul, Funk, and Electro. If you’re a fan of early-to-mid […]
Pro Era’s CJ Fly who gave us mixtapes Thee Way Eye See It in 2013 and Flytrap in 2016, today releases his debut studio album Rudebwoy. The LP’s artwork and title represents his familial heritage of Barbados and Jamaica but this island-referencing aesthetic isn’t exactly a constant for […]
Although it may have formed part of this film’s pitch and it might be one of the main reasons for putting this version into production, the latest iteration of The Invisible Man is not a so-called “Me Too” movie. Unimaginative producers and bandwagonist critics may think any flick […]
After Parasite‘s historical Oscar win, making it the first international, non-English-speaking film ever to win “best picture”, this movie is now in danger of being overrated with almost no mainstream critic calling attention to its flaws. Critics are calling Parasite a “masterpiece” and it currently holds a 99% […]
The $uicideboy$‘ latest album titled Stop Staring At The Shadows is out at midnight and I’m pleased to report that overall it’s an enjoyable listen. This is the duo’s second full-length studio LP but if you’re a genuine fan, you’ll know that this is the group’s 45th-ish release. […]
The legend that is Jaz-O dropped a 10-track mixtape-slash-album last week titled The Warm Up and it’s a very enjoyable listen. The Originator has always been one of the all-time Hip-Hop greats but for some reason he’s never been elevated to “G.O.A.T.” status. With a well-documented feud between […]
Night Lovell is a rapper and producer from Ottawa, Canada. Like many other fans, I first heard his music back in 2014 when he released the single “Dark Light”. That particular track is Lovell’s most famous song and undoubtedly a classic; it doesn’t seem to age. The haunting […]

Based on the 1981 play by Alan Ayckbourn, Way Upstream is a 1987 TV movie starring Stuart Wilson, Barrie Rutter, Marion Bailey, Nick Dunning, and Joanne Pearce. After being broadcast on BBC One on January 1st 1988 at 10 o’clock at night, this classic film for some unknown […]
Almost universally hated by critics when first released, the 2006 remake of the 1974 horror film Black Christmas was a gaudy and comical slasher movie. Some of this criticism was a little unfair, after all, given the time period, alongside all the Saws and Paranormal Activities, Black Christmas […]
