Movie Breakdown: Domain (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: When you get at-home-screeners that you’ve never heard of before, it’s a toss-up. I will say that for the most part the at-home-screeners that fall into the sci-fi genre usually have a better chance of being okay. Post-Screening Ramble: There’s a real history of low-budget, high-quality science-fiction in the cinematic world. Films that [...]

Movie Breakdown: Miss Sloane

Pre-Screening Stance: Jessica Chastain takes on gun control in Miss Sloane!  Am I ready for this?  Probably not.  But I’m going in anyways. Post-Screening Ramble: If you’re into legal thrillers (Michael Clayton, The Firm, Pelican Brief, A Few Good Men, etc.), then you’re going to love Miss Sloane.  The titular character (a fiery and very [...]

Movie Breakdown: Rules Don’t Apply

Pre-Screening Stance: I didn’t even know this movie existed until I got an invite to a press screening for it.  How does that happen with a film that’s written and directed by Warren Beatty?  Anyhow, it looks like it could be a quirky good time, so I’m heading into it with at least mild expectations. [...]

Movie Breakdown: Allied

Pre-Screening Stance: The early word on Allied has been slightly negative (at least in my feeds), but I’m still looking forward to it.  Mostly because Robert Zemeckis, Brad Pitt and Marion Cotillard are a trio I’ll take any day of the week. Post-Screening Ramble: I really enjoyed Allied, but I can understand why it’s been [...]

Movie Breakdown: Moana (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: At this point, with all the soft splits Disney’s animation division has endured, I’m a little confused as to who makes what and if those who are making it are the talented ones or the cheesy ones. But hey, The Rock is funny! Post-Screening Stance: Moana, directed by a handful of people, is [...]

Movie Breakdown: Bleed For This (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: I like boxing movies because as much as I enjoy the idea of the deadly and beautiful dance of two people hitting each other competitively, the real thing makes me squirm. Post-Screening Ramble: It’s hard to point a finger at why movies like Ben Younger’s Bleed For This don’t especially work. It’s a [...]

Ty Segall

Just a heads up, this is my last “regular” music post (there will still be film reviews) of 2016.  The site will be on break next week, and then it will be year-end list time.  Woo!  Now, about today’s Ty Segall track – it’s super rad.  Here’s hoping the rest of his upcoming album is [...]

Movie Breakdown: Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them

Pre-Screening Stance: The magic is back!  While I’m slightly disappointed that this wasn’t all over the posters for the oddly named Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them, I am excited to see it.  After all, every one of the 49 Harry Potter entries were on point, so there’s no reason to think that this [...]

LIV

Lykke Li, Miike Snow’s Andrew Wyatt and Pontus Winnberg, Peter Bjorn & John’s Björn Yttling and producer Jeff Bhasker make up LIV.  I was hoping that their second single would come with word on when the world can expect their debut full length, but it didn’t.  Bummer.  On the bright side, the act’s new track [...]

Los Campesinos!

I haven’t thought about Los Campesinos! in so long that I totally forgot they’re a great band.  How silly of me.  Anyhow, here’s to the return of the Welsh act (their last album was 2013′s No Blues) and their anthemic ways.  Enjoy. :Los Campesinos! – I Broke Up In Amarante: Sick Scene is due our [...]
