Movie Breakdown: Annihilation (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: I absolutely adore Alex Garland in general. Ex Machina is one of the great sci-fi flicks of the last twenty years and everything he’s added his writerly touch to has been immensely watchable. Hell, his book The Tesseract is fantastic as well. Couple Garland with science-fiction stalwart Jeff Vandermeer’s ultra strange Annihilation novel [...]

Movie Breakdown: Annihilation

Pre-Screening Stance: Alex Garland (Ex Machina) in the director’s chair is enough to get me interested in any movie, but my anticipation for Annihilation has been peaked by Paramount deeming it “too intellectual” and “too complicated.”  Just exactly what did Garland create here?  I need to see it. Post-Screening Ramble: Like Contact, Arrival and various [...]

Movie Breakdown: Game Night

Pre-Screening Stance: Is anyone actually excited about Game Night?  I mean, I dig Jason Bateman, but his comedy film track record isn’t particularly good.  Maybe Rachel McAdams or Kyle Chandler will make this one a winner?  I don’t know.  Either way, can’t say my expectations are high here. Post-Screening Ramble: Game Night isn’t quite a [...]

Show Of The Week

St. Vincent’s Fear The Future Tour is finally here!  I’ve been a big fan of her (aka Annie Clark) since her 2007 debut album, Marry Me, and I’ve been buzzing ever since the two nights of shows at ACL Live got announced.  Not only is SV fun to watch, but I really dig the two-set [...]

Raised Eyebrows: Overlooked 00′s (Randy)

With the rush of February comes a personally curious + overwhelming nostalgia for the 00’s. Within the decade that saw Y2K, September 11th, Napster, and the death of the CD, there’s a small but considerable wealth to revisit and enjoy. Here are 10 underrated releases from the 00’s that deserve to be (re)heard. Broadcast – [...]

Movie Breakdown: Black Panther (Noah)

Pre-Screening Stance: I mean how can anyone who likes anything not be excited about the fact that the man who directed Creed is lording over the debut film of a big time African-American superhero? And that every tiny bit of material that we’ve seen is both inspired, beautiful and potentially amazing? Yeah, I’d say my [...]

Movie Breakdown: Black Panther

Pre-Screening Stance: Black Panther has legit cultural significance and it’s the final Marvel film before Infinity War.  Do you really need another reason to be excited about it?  I don’t. Post-Screening Ramble: Black Panther is another hit for Marvel.  It’s culturally rich, which makes it not just feel like another superhero movie, and it’s generally [...]

Show Of The Week

While I’m pumped to see Sparta at Barracuda tomorrow night, I have to admit that my focus is on Why? at the Mohawk on Friday.  I’ve loved the indie rock-ish/hip hop-ish band since their 2005 release Elephant Eyelash, and it’s always a pleasure watching them live.  Also, my radio program, 101X Homegrown, will be simultaneously [...]

Happy Metal Fun Time (Chuck)

Last year was kind of a shoddy year for the heavy tunes, and I know that many metalheads will chime in quickly with their favorite underground whatever crap that they found on Bandcamp that no one else knows about, but stop for one second and be honest with yourself … say it out loud with [...]

Stephen Malkmus & The Jicks

While I would love for Pavement to reunite, I’ll certainly take new music and a tour from Stephan Malkmus & The Jicks as a consolation prize.  Check out a catchy country-rocker from the Pavement frontman down below, and then make a note to see the act at the Mohawk on July 25.  Enjoy.
