Dario Argento has been responsible for some great horror-thrillers. His early films are not necessarily flawless but they’re classics nevertheless; they might not be heaving with edge-of-your-seat thrills but the constant sense of intrigue coupled with the dazzling visuals is a superb mix for the audience. With an […]
Quibi’s Most Dangerous Game is a very underrated TV or web series. I say “series” but it’s not really; each episode is under 10 minutes making the total runtime approximately two hours (127 minutes and 24 seconds to be exact). If this series was edited to remove the […]
Quibi’s The Stranger is another decent “web series” that’s been neglected by the public, in part because of the failed platform it appears on, but also because of the Netflix series bearing the same name. Quibi’s The Stranger stars Maika Monroe as Clare, a budding writer and “Orbit” […]
In July 1991, almost two years after the excellent first Bill and Ted movie, the loveable-yet-cool, air-guitar-playing duo returned in the sequel Bill & Ted’s Bogus Journey. Instead of merely time travelling, the follow-up film had the Wyld Stallyns navigating the afterlife and Bogus Journey also had something […]
Before Beavis & Butthead, Wayne & Garth, Bud & Doyle, Romy & Michele, and Jay & Silent Bob, there was Bill & Ted, a pair of teenage underachievers with Californian surfer-slash-stoner accents. The duo aimlessly (and innocently) navigated life whilst obsessing over heavy metal music. Bill and Ted […]
Da Hillfiguz (also known as “Hillfiguz” or “Hillfiguzes”) was a Hip-Hop group from Brownsville, Brooklyn, New York. It’s members were Dogface, Danga, and T-Hall with T-Hall serving as producer and Danga & Dogface rapping. Hillfiguz were yet another Hip-Hop group who had the potential to be golden era […]
T-Max (an abbreviation of his real name Todd Keith Maxwell) is a rapper from Boston, Massachusetts who some may recall from the mid-to-late ’90s underground Hip-Hop scene. I used to be a photography student at college and seeing his name on a tracklist or playlist always reminded me […]
When people speak about “chord cutting” they’re not fully committed to their money-saving endeavour. Lots of people set out to cancel their high-priced satellite or cable subscriptions, but they then migrate to paid streaming services, sometimes several of them, and the end result of moving from one to […]
In 1878, a photographer named Eadweard Muybridge took high-speed photographs of a galloping horse in order to prove that all four legs leave the ground during part of a horse’s stride. Eadweard’s photographs succeeded in ending an age-old argument but had he pieced all his images together and […]
Spike Lee’s war drama Da 5 Bloods is released on Netflix today and it’s a decent watch and a worthy replacement for a Friday cinema premiere. As the Netflix description reads: “Four African American veterans return to Vietnam decades after the war to find their squad leader’s remains […]
Two members of New Jersey rap-trio Double XX Posse returned three years after their debut album Put Ya Boots On with their follow-up LP Ruff, Rugged & Raw. With a shortened name, members Sugar Ray and B.K. came back strong; Double X’s second album was just as potent […]
Remember when romantic comedies were fun? From Coming To America to Groundhog Day to Peggy Sue Got Married, during the 80s and early 90s, romcoms were some of the best films Hollywood had to offer. Then, somewhere during the late 90s and 00s, filmmakers elevated the schmaltz and […]
Brooklyn rapper Labba dropped his third album a couple of weeks back and it went without any fanfare despite it being a highly enjoyable listen. The LP is called The 9 and like the title suggests, it contains nine raw, hard-as-concrete joints by the often overlooked MC, whose […]
