Film Review: The Signal

Film Review: The Signal

poster modThere are some exciting young voices working in the sci-fi genre these days. Neill Blomkamp leaps immediately to mind, but The Signal announces that writer-director, William Eubank, is a new player in the game. This is an assured film that effortlessly mixes visual styles and tones to keep us guessing throughout. It’s often exhilarating, sometimes frustrating and more than a little creepy. In…

Washington’s Hoth are a black metal band named after the frozen planet on which Luke Skywalker and co. find themselves on in Episode V of Star Wars.

Exclusive: STAR WARS EPISODE VII Plot Details Revealed! via Badass Digest

I’m going to keep this vague. I have no interest in spoiling Star Wars Episode VII, although I’m sure some people will find any information about the film’s plot to be spoilery. If you’re a spoilerphobe or want to go into Star Wars Episode VII totally, completely…

Film Review: They Came Together

Film Review: They Came Together

poster modSpoofing romantic comedies seems like such a bankable idea. That the genre is well-defined and takes itself so seriously makes it an easy target. Just grab two adorable co-stars—like Paul Rudd and Amy Poehler—and push those rom-com clichés into overdrive! Simple. So how did They Came Togethergo so horribly wrong? Sure, there are a few laughs sprinkled throughout, when the filmmakers push the…

Album Review: Celtic Frost – Morbid Tales


Dissolving a band and forming a new one straight afterwards which retains two thirds of the original line-up might seem strange and a little pointless, but in 1980’s Switzerland Tom G. Warrior and Martin Ain had their reasons for closing the Hellhammer book and striking out into a bold new chapter entitled Celtic Frost.

Film Review: The Purge: Anarchy

Film Review: The Purge: Anarchy

creepy dude mod

Capitalizing on the surprising success of 2013’s The Purge, 2014 finds The Purge: Anarchy taking it to the streets for a little more ‘cleansing.’ Writer-director, James DeMonaco, makes this a less-intimate affair, expanding the terrain and body count to citywide proportions. Part Escape from New York, part The Hunger Games, Anarchykeeps things moving fast, with just enough class-baiting satire…

Film Review: Tammy

tammy modTammy starts so slowly that it has to become a road trip movie just to reach boredom faster. It’s baffling that a talented comedienne like Melissa McCarthy produced, co-wrote and starred in something so stridently unfunny. This movie can’t commit to anything resembling a plot, as it throws together a tired collection of episodic gags that never pay off. Tammywill surely be one of the most…
