Movie Breakdown: Deadpool

Pre-Screening Stance: Ever since Ryan Reynolds showed off his abs in Blade: Trinity, the internet has been all in a huff trying to get someone out in Hollywood to let him star in a Deadpool movie.  Well, after 12 years of furious typing, the moment of truth for forum-dwellers everywhere has arrived.  Personally, I’m excited [...]

Quickdraw: Sheer Mag, Parquet Courts, Mass Gothic, The Raveonettes, Mogwai

Music!  Enjoy. :Sheer Mag – Can’t Stop Fighting:  Another year, another immensely rad track from Sheer Mag.  Eventually they’re going to write a bad song, and even then I might still dig it.  No word yet on whether this is a one-off track or if it belongs to an EP/LP. :Parquet Courts – Dust:  Here’s [...]

Movie Breakdown: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies

Pre-Screening Stance: Pride And Prejudice And Zombies originally got underway in 2009 with David O. Russell as the writer and director and Natalie Portman as the star.  They left.  Then both Mike Newell (Prince Of Persia) and Matt Reeves (Cloverfield) declined to direct.  Eventually Mike White (Year Of The Dog) took the job but then [...]

Movie Breakdown: Hail, Caesar (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: It’s a Coen brothers film starring just about every awesome actor in Hollywood. I would say excitement is a mild term for what I am right now. Post-Screening Ramble: There are very few Coen brothers movies that I don’t flat out enjoy. In my humble opinion, and many other folk’s less humble opinions, [...]

Movie Breakdown: Hail, Caesar

Pre-Screening Stance: While I didn’t care much for Joel and Ethan Coen’s last film, 2013′s Inside Llewyn Davis, I’m still really looking forward to Hail, Caesar.  It looks fun.  Also, it’s the damn Coen brothers!  Even their bad films are tolerable. Post-Screening Ramble: Somewhere around the halfway mark of Hail, Caesar I finally realized what [...]

Movie Breakdown: 45 Years

Pre-Screening Stance: 45 Years looks like one of those films that just rips you apart and then leaves you in a dark corner somewhere, all disassembled and feeling like maybe you don’t really know anything about anything.  Sign me up!  Also, go ahead and pour me a glass of whiskey. Post-Screening Ramble: Just as I [...]

Sheer Agony (Noah)

Let me be honest here: I’ve been hip-dip in mixtape after glorious mixtape of old, weird, obscure music and I’ve barely taken the time to poke my head out of my cubbyhole to acknowledge that contemporary music is still hurtling along. That said, I took a moment away from the world of mixtape podcasts I’ve [...]

Mirror Travel

Mirror Travel have been a favorite of mine since I moved to Austin in 2007.  Though, way back then they were called Follow That Bird, they played scuzzy garage rock, and whenever I saw its members out and about they had big X’s on their hands.  Now they’re all grown up and cranking out undeniably [...]

Movie Breakdown: Kung Fu Panda 3

Pre-Screening Stance: Personally, I think the first two Kung Fu Panda films are pretty good.  While they’re both fairly silly, they pack a positive message and feature great visuals.  I have moderately high hopes for the third entry. Post-Screening Ramble: On the outside, Kung Fu Panda 3 isn’t all that different than the first two [...]
